ALZHEIMER’S—THE LONG GOOD-BYE

Older Americans have come to fear that Alzheimer’s will cause them to be a caregiver to a loved one or that it will attack them personally.
Alzheimer’s now has been diagnosed in more than 5 million Americans.According to most recent studies one-third of all seniors die withn Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease in which the nerve cells of the brain deteriorate, resulting in impaired memory, thinking, and behavior.

Symptoms
The most common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include disorientation, confusion, memory loss, language impairment, insomnia, irritability, depression, and reversion to childhood. The disease is progressive. Death occurs about ten years after diagnosis. Currently there is no known cure, though natural therapies have been successful in slowing brain deterioration.

Causes
Many cases are the result of too many prescription drugs along with nutritional deficiencies. Proper diagnosis is essential. Other factors that contribute to the disease are poor circulation, arteriosclerosis,hypothyroidism, aluminum toxicity, mercury toxicity, heredity, and possible viral connections. Genetic predisposition is present in more than half of the cases.

Dietary considerations
Choosing to eat nutritiously can help to overcome the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, especially if you make those choices early in life.

The following dietary regimen can be helpful.
Avoid red meats and sugar; eat nuts, eggs, and soy. Eat a largely vegetarian diet, choosing organic foods to avoid xenoestrogens from pesticides. Eat foods that block aluminum toxicity, such as liver, fish, brown rice, wheat germ, and molasses. Drink spring water only, as fluoridated water increases aluminum absorption. Eat avocados, poultry, and low-fat dairy to boost tryptophan levels. Take vitamins, minerals, and nutritional supplements that enhance memory, nourish the brain, protect brain cells, and reduce amyloid protein strings to overcome brain damage.
