Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder named for German physician Alois Alzheimer, who first described it in 1906. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among older people. Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities.
Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Symptoms of Alzheimers first appear after age 60.
Cause of Alzheimers:
Scientists don’t yet fully understand what causes Alzheimer’s disease, but it is clear that it develops because of a complex series of events that take place in the brain over a long period of time. It is likely that the causes include genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Because people differ in their genetic make-up and lifestyle, the importance of these factors for preventing or delaying Alzheimer’s disease differs from person to person.
Symptoms of Alzheimers:
Some common early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include confusion, disturbances in short term memory, problems with attention and spatial orientation, changes in personality, language difficulties and unexplained mood swings. Normally, these symptoms are very mild, and presence of the disease may not be apparent to the person experiencing the symptoms, loved ones or even health professionals.
Remedies for Alzheimer’s Disease:
* Drink more vegetable and fruit juices, particularly vegetable juices since they have less fructose. These juices have tons of beneficial antioxidants.
* Exposure to sunlight in the morning and sleep pattern restoration are helpful. One study shows exposure to sunlight in the morning followed by melatonin supplement use at night helps restore healthy sleeping patterns.
* Providing acetylcholine precursors, such as choline. Maximum dose 100 to 500 mg a few times a week.
* Blocking the breakdown of acetylcholine with pharmaceutical drugs or natural supplements such as huperzine.
* Drinking herbal teas, including green tea.
* A high concentration of silica in drinking water seems to protect against Alzheimer's disease.
* Improving blood flow to brain cells.
* Blue Green Algae have a cholinesterase inhibitor.
