Herbal remedy Alzheimer

Alzheimer disease is associated with plaques and tangles in the brain. It is the most common cause of dementia that is the progressive decline in cognitive function due to damage or disease in the brain beyond what might be expected from normal aging. This disease is kind of incurable at this point in time. It generally occurs in people who are more than 65 years of age but still there are exceptions. The duration of the disease is estimated as being between 5 and 20 years. Symptoms of this disease include short-term memory loss in the early stages. Later symptoms include confusion, anger, mood swings, language breakdown, long-term memory loss, and the general withdrawal of the patient with a decline in his or her senses. Slowly the sufferer loses out on bodily functions, until death occurs. Although the symptoms are common, each individual experiences the symptoms in unique ways.

As preventative measures mental stimulation, exercise and a balanced diet are usually recommended. Psychosocial interventions are also seen as a useful treatment for people suffering from this disease. Another set of treatments are the stimulation-oriented treatments that includes art, music and pet therapies, exercise, and any other kind of recreational activities for patients. Caregiving is also an essential part of the treatment. Home care in the familiar surroundings of home may delay onset of some symptoms and delay or eliminate the need for more professional and costly levels of care.
