Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to degenerate and die. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently.
Potential Causes of Late-Onset Alzheimer’s
It is very likely that a combination of genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors contribute to the risk of developing this form of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), which occurs after age 60. The exact causes are not yet known.
There is no single gene mutation that consistently causes late-onset Alzheimer’s. Instead, the late-onset form seems to represent the combined effect of multiple genes, each of which increases the risk a little. The best known of these is the apolipoprotein E gene (ApoE).
Researchers are actively exploring how diet, exercise, the management of medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, and other lifestyle factors contribute to the risk of developing AD.
Education level, head injuries, and other environmental influences( exposure to various toxic heavy metals like aluminium, mercury, iron toxicity etc) may also play a role in AD.
Treatments at our centre
In the last few years, various studies have been providing evidence that metal ions are critically involved in the pathogenesis of major neurological diseases (Alzheimer, Parkinson). Metal ion chelators have been suggested as potential therapies for diseases involving metal ion imbalance.
Chelation may prevent or slow down disease progression of several neurodegeneration disorders. we begin our treatment of Alzheimer’s patients with a full analysis of a person’s general health, including testing for heavy metal toxicity. If detected, we utilize chelating agents to rid the body of these metals, as well as other natural detoxification techniques.
Ozone therapy in AD also gives extremely dramatic results. ozonating of the blood has been shown to precipitate the aluminum. Also, of course, its abilities as a circulatory enhancer and cell rejuvenator come into play. German doctors have also had success with Parkinson’s, MS and other nervous system disorders.
Acupuncture could improve the lives of people with AD by increasing verbal and motor skills and improving their mood and cognitive function, The biochemical modulations by acupuncture in the brains of Alzheimer’s models are correlated with the cognitive improvement. In Alzheimer’s patients, functional brain images demonstrated that acupuncture increased in the activity in the temporal lobe and prefrontal lobe which are related to the memory and cognitive function.Stimulation of acupoints enhances cholinergic neurotransmission, trophic factor releasing, reduces apoptotic and oxidative damages, improves synaptic plasticity and decreases the levels of Aβ proteins in the hippocampus and relevant brain regions.
We work to repair oxidative damage with Ozone therapy and the use of antioxidant nutritional supplements including Vitamins E, Vitamin B12 and folate, amino acids, and fatty acids as well as the intake of “superfoods” known for their natural healing properties.
