Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment in Clarkston

Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.  Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.

The most common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is difficulty remembering newly learned information because Alzheimer’s changes typically begin in the part of the brain that affects learning. As Alzheimer’s advances through the brain it leads to increasingly severe symptoms, including disorientation, mood and behavior changes; deepening confusion about events, time and place; unfounded suspicions about family, friends and professional caregivers; more serious memory loss and behavior changes; and difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking.

Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging.  There are several risk factors known now in Functional Medicine, new research is showing that long term use of statin medications and acid blockers are linked to early onset of Alzheimer’s.  Other evidence points to generalized inflammatory processes, metabolic syndrome, toxic overload and genetics play a role however, in Functional Medicine by identifying the type of Alzheimer’s we can now treat these clients and reversal is occurring.
