Alzheimers Disease Stages page covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this disease.

Alzheimers Disease Stages

Stages And Causes Of Alzheimers Disease:

Alzheimers Disease is one of the saddest and frightening diseases.  Over the course of several years, it progresses through stages similar to a child growing up...only in reverse.  We start as adults, able to think and remember.  Then, it becomes more difficult to remember recent things or to calculate even simple things.  As Alzheimer's progresses, we become less able to run simple machines (like TV's, Cars, Cameras) or to find our way around...we even tend to forget who are our children or friends.  Over time, we forget how to dress, brush our teeth, shower.  In the final stages, we forget how to feed ourselves or to control our bowel and bladder. 

Note:  After caring for my mother who had Alzheimers disease, I can tell you there is a redeeming quality of the disease.  As near as I could tell, once she was in the mid-stage of the disease, it didn't seem to bother her at all.  It's as if she "forgot" anything was wrong.  This seemed common to most of the people in the Alzheimers care facility where she lived the last few years.  They all seemed happy and well adjusted. 

Signs And Symptoms Of Alzheimers Disease:

If you take a look at the early stages above, you'll see the common signs.  If you suspect Alzheimer's see a doctor and ask him to do a blood test for Vitamin B-12 deficiency.  If there is no deficiency, get a referral to a Neurologist, who can test your thinking ability.  Don't just assume because you've had some memory lapses, it's Alzheimers disease.

Treatment Of Alzheimers Disease:

If you catch it in the early stages, there are drugs that can slow the disease, but no cures.  At some point, Alzheimers disease will make it necessary to have professional residential care.  It's best to plan things in advance during the early stages and find a quality facility acceptable to both the patient and the one who will be making the health care decisions.

What You Can Do About Alzheimers Disease:

Follow a low fat, high protein diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Get plenty of aerobic activity and exercise.  Make sure you're drinking enough water.  Supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following to strengthen your blood flow, mental ability and immune system:

Antioxidants; including Beta Carotene, Flavonoids, LycopeneVitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and CoQ10.
Organic Germanium; 300-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Fiber; 12-15 grams extra from vegetable sources or supplements.
Garlic; 3 cloves per day.
Omega 3; 3 per day, 1 at beginning of each meal.
Lecithin; taken with the Omega 3.
Lipoic Acid; at least 200mg daily, split into 2-3 doses.
Vitamin B Complex
Gingko Biloba; about 240mg daily, split into 2-3 doses.

Always check with your doctor before making changes in your nutritional or exercise habits.

Complete Healing:

We both know there are no guaranteed cures, whether in medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Complete healing...including mind, body and possible, from God.  If you want God's help with your health problem, go to Healing From God.
