Today, Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.
This is a disease in which little is known other than your risk increases with age, particularly post 65.
- It is not known if a virus or a toxin or a deficiency causes it.
- It is not known what triggers it or how to treat it, how to prevent it or how to slow it down once it starts its destructive course.
The hope for understanding, preventing or treating it lies in demystifying the mysteries of the brain.
What is believed is that the problem is biological, not psychological, most likely not a virus but a dysfunction, like cancer.
Nutrient deficiencies, toxins and excesses are being investigated. Personally, I would give sound nutrition a try. Perhaps relying on “brain foods.” (See more about the brain here.) Life long learning and social engagement do seem to help.
Prevention, relief, and/or cures are possible for many diseases and disorders through sound nutrition however there’s no particular set of nutritional guidelines for Alzheimer’s patients.
See a qualified nutritionist for help in any of the areas mentioned, as well as for asthma, aids, multiple sclerosis, ulcers, skin diseases, schizophrenia, colitis, enteritis, diverticulitis, blood deficiencies, chronic fatigue syndrome, Epstein-Barr virus, menstrual disorders, menopausal problems, herpes, hemorrhaging, kidney failure, hemorrhoids, cysts, tumors, alcoholism, as well as many more.
