A Brief Introduction:
Alzheimer is the most common and frightening dementia disease. There is no such cure or treatment introduced for this disease. Researchers conclude that this disease after getting worse can lead to death. The initial symptoms of this disease include short term memory loss. Advance symptoms include confusion, irritability, aggression, mood swings, trouble with language, and long-term memory loss. As the patient's condition suffering from this disease gets worse, he/she withdraw from family and society. Later on the bodily functions are lost and stop working properly, ultimately leading the patient to death.
Recent Study and Research - Holistic Approach to Alzheimer's Treatment May Reverse Memory Loss:
Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles conducted a research regarding the treatment of this scary disease. The research reveals that alzheimer disease can be treated by reversing the memory loss. This treatment is the combination of both western medicine with eastern philosophy.
Dr. Dale Bredesen, with UCLA's Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research conducted this research on 10 patients and found effective results on 9 of them. This new treatment treats the patients holistically rather than traditionally.
"They have either taken a single drug, mono-therapy, to try with Alzheimer's and that has been a failure repeatedly, or they have tried without any sort of background simply saying, 'Okay, try exercise, try changing your diet,' these sorts of things, and there has not been any way to understand how these things contribute to the disease," Dr Dale Bredesen said.
A 55 year old was one of these patients on whom this new treatment was done. And this proved to be an effective treatment to treat her memory loss.
"I could not remember conversations that I'd had with my kids and my husband. I started having to refer to my calendar all the time," she said.
"I now have much more confidence in my work and am not afraid that I will forget something. I don't have to rely on my lists. I don't have to write everything down."
This treatment include lifestyle changes and even medications or supplements. The improvement in nine patients took about 3 to 6 months. However, the 10th patient was unable to show any improvement in his memory loss disease.
