Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disorder affecting the memory and cognitive functions. It is a disease which progressively gets worse and starts to affect day to day functioning. Initially the symptoms of memory loss may be mild but as the disease progresses it may become so severe that the patient is unable to even recognize their own family members, unable to carry on a conversation or respond to others. The patients may undergo radical personality changes too like becoming increasingly suspicious, fearful, angry, apathetic etc. The synapses between the brain cells are destroyed and the brain cells undergo degeneration. Medical science offers no known cure for it yet, and the number of cases of Alzheimer’s are expected to double over the next three decades.
A new study shows that variety of physical activities like walking, running, gardening and even dancing can help to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s by 50% and also help to improve the overall brain volume.
Homeopathic treatment aims at treating the person with the disease and not the disease alone. In Classical Homeopathy we treat the individual as a whole and the focus of the therapy is to bring about an improvement in the overall well being. If the symptoms are already present the treatment is aimed in reducing the rate of progression of the disease. Classical Homeopathic treatment can also help to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s or any other forms of dementia by working on boosting your overall immunity. Some well known Homeopathic remedies for memory loss are Alumina, Acid phos, Acid picricum, Cocculus, Plumbum metallicum, Zincum metallicum etc. Your Homeopath will go through your entire case in detail before deciding on which remedy would be the most appropriate for your situation.
