Alzheimer s Disease
This disease has gained lot of consideration and lime light after Ronald Reagan the former US president was found to be affected with it. Mother Nature has blessed mankind amongst all the entities on the earth with an extraordinary quality of logical and rational thinking. The storehouse of immense knowledge, ‘BRAIN’ is the source of this exceptional attribute. Unfortunately, the entire system of an individual becomes handicapped as the same brain starts deteriorating. The major culprit who is involved in the deterioration of brain is Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating disease of brain that robs the afflicted individual of intelligence, memory and eventually life.
Many diverse medical theories, including the biochemistry of acetylcholine and neurotransmitters, inflammation, oxidative stress and free radicals, and homocystine, nutritional and vitamin deficiencies, as probable causes of Alzheimer's disease have been put forth.
Declining memory is the most common early symptom of Alzheimer's. Some change in memory is normal as we grow older, but the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are more than simple lapses in memory.
Alzheimer patients need to be taken care of very cautiously. Such a patient should not be left alone at all. A congenial surrounding environment has been seen to delay the process of degeneration.
Although Alzheimer's disease has always puzzled physicians of all walks, interestingly homeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment if not cure. When we discuss the role of medicine for certain diseases, we probably do not talk of the 'cure' in real sense, but more of 'control' and 'relief'. AD is one such condition, where homeopathy has following role to play:
- To control the disease process whereby further deterioration of the brain damage is helped to certain extent
- To improve to an extent some of the symptoms: communication, failing memory, anxiety, restlessness, etc.
- Many of the problems associated with dementia such as restlessness, depression, and agitation can be treated effectively and gently with homeopathy.
- It may also be possible, especially in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, to improve someone's memory with homeopathic medication.
- Timely administered homeopathy medicines can prevent further progress of disease.
- Homoeopathy undertakes study of each Alzheimer's as separate entity and does in-depth evaluation of the disease as well as patient as person. The study also involves deep evaluation of the mind and emotions. After appreciating the patients in his totality, a suitable medicine called as 'constitutional medicine' is selected for the patient. The medication based on such foundation brings deeper level healing process for the sufferers of chronic diseases.
- It should be noted that there is no single specific remedy for all the cases of Alzheimer's. The exact treatment is determined only on in-depth evaluation of individual case.
Brain scan like CT and MRI to detect other causes of dementia such as stroke and laboratory tests, such as blood and urine tests, for checking various components of blood, hormones, enzymes, infections, etc.
