What is Alzheimer's Disease? Alzheimer's Disease is a form of progressive, degenerative dementia that disables behavior, memory and thinking abilities. Alzheimer's disease varies from person to person, and may progress at different rates.

Common risk factors for Alzheimer's disease is having a family history, longterm high blood pressure, head trauma history, heightened levels of homocysteine, and female gender.

Alzheimer's disease is known to destroy nerve cells (neurons) that subsequently causes a decrease in neurotransmitters. When the correct balance is not maintained by neurotransmitters, the brain's functioning becomes critically improvised.

Some early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease include the following:

  • Difficulty performing tasks
  • Disorientation in familiar surroundings
  • Disassociation of names for common objects
  • Lack of interest in usually enjoyable activies
  • Misplacement of items
  • Repetitive statements
Though there is no cure for Alzheimer's Disease, there are options for treatment that can slow the disease progression, help manage behavior problems, and assistance with family counsel.

Aside from medications and lifestyle modifications, alternative supplements such as ginkgo biloba and Vitamin E are helpful as well.

Taking routine walks with a friend or caregiver, bright light therapy, music therapy, animal intervention like a pet cat or dog, relaxation techniques and regular massages are also superb remedies for persons suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.
