Alzheimer's Diseaseposted on 18 November 2007 | posted in Health Tips
Cerebral disorder where free radical activity is implicated. The diagnosis can only truly be made post mortem, which in patients with the disease shows atrophy (shrinking of tissue) of the brain, plaques and fibrous nerve tangles in the brain.
Whilst genetic factors have an influence, these are far outweighed by environmental factors. Some of these may include traumatic head injury at some time in life, chronic exposure to aluminium and toxic metals and /or chemicals and other substances toxic to the nervous system. Oxidative damage plays a major role.
Symptoms include loss of memory and cognitive functions, inability to carry out daily activities.
Eliminate any obstacles to the healing process such as:
If there is depression, taking flaxseed oil, L acetylcarnitine and ginko biloba are recommended.
The Chinese herb Huperzine has been shown to improve cognitive function in many of those who take it. Nature's Sunshine Brain Protex with Huperzine contains this herb.
Oxidative stress and the brain
Antioxidants are really important to reduce oxidative stress. As well as a high potency multi vitamin and mineral, Grapine from grape seed extract is known to be very beneficial in reducing free radical overload.
Homocysteine levels can be high because of a deficiency in folic acid, B6 and zinc. This can cause inflammation in the brain as well as the arteries. A deficiency in thiamin (vitamin B1) can impair cognitive skills. All of these are found in a high potency multi vitamin and mineral complex.
