Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimers is the most common form of dementia among older people. It involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory, and language. Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities.

People with Alzheimer's disease have abnormal clumps (amyloid plaques) and tangled bundles of fibers (neurofibrillary tangles) in their brains. Nerve cells are lost in areas of the brain that are vital to memory and other mental abilities. There also are lower levels of chemicals in the brain that carry complex messages back and forth between nerve cells (neurotransmitters). Alzheimers may disrupt normal thinking and memory by blocking messages between nerve cells.

Can Alzheimers Be Prevented?

Because the primary cause of Alzheimer’s disease is not well understood, targeted prevention is difficult. However, naturopathic doctors work to promote wellness by supporting fundamentals of health such as diet, nutrition, and hydration and to remove things that harm health such as digestive disorders, system imbalances, and environmental and chemical exposures and toxicities. You can also work to prevent the disease by addressing the modifiable risk factors listed above. Earlier detection and treatment of Alzheimers also correlates with better outcomes.
