How to Treat Alzheimer's with Alternative Medicine

Like a thief in the night, Alzheimer’s creeps into the minds of once-productive loved ones, stealing their cognitive abilities and their memories. Although there is no medical cure proven effective 100 percent of the time, there are alternative treatment options that show promise.


1- Reduce stress levels in the elderly. Unfortunately, as we age, we often worry more about things that didn’t bother us when we were younger. Studies indicate stress may be a contributing factor in developing Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

2- Increase estrogen supplementation in women after menopause. Initial studies suggest that women who receive estrogen replacement treatment are approximately 40 percent less likely to develop the signs of Alzheimer’s. Thought to enhance the brain’s hormone receptors, estrogen replacement therapy can come from plant or synthetic sources.

3- Consume supplemental sources of antioxidants. Healthy brain cells perish when they encounter free radicals that are found in the air we breathe. Antioxidants, in turn, destroy free radicals, and in doing so, protect the brain. Common sources of antioxidants are Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, selenium and B6.

4- Lower the brains’ exposure to lead and other heavy metal poisoning by increasing beneficial minerals in the diet. Both zinc and magnesium show promise in reducing deposits in the brain caused by heavy metals. Some studies indicate exposure to heavy metals is a major cause of dementia.

5- Use alternative herbal treatments from the East. Ginkgo biloba is popular for increasing brain function and new studies indicate another Chinese herb, club moss, is showing promise in preventing dementia and reversing the effects in some Alzheimer’s patients.

Removing peroxidized lipids with vitamin E Complex, DMAE, Centrophenoxine; and removing heavy metals with pectasol, chlorella, NAC, and cilantro is also essential. FYI...moderate caffeine use is correlated with less incidence of Alzheimer's and depression.
