Alzheimer's Disease
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND


Alzheimer's is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system characterized by mental deterioration. Neurons in the brain that produce a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine are destroyed by free radical damage. Most of the remedies listed here are more for prevention than they are for a cure. Most herbal and nutritional remedies will slow the progress of Alzheimer's, but may not completely halt or reverse the progress of the disease.

High levels of aluminum have been found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, but most experts now agree this is not a cause of the disease. However, it is still wise to protect the body from this heavy metal by avoiding aluminum cook-ware, especially when preparing acidic foods like tomatoes. Also avoid antiperspirant deodorants that contain compounds and baking powder with aluminum.

To prevent Alzheimer's eat good fats and avoid bad fats.
Minimize exposure to alcohol, tobacco and environmental toxins.
Eat generous servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day and stay mentally active.

Once Alzheimer's has started, antioxidants can slow deterioration.
Mind-Max may be helpful in enhancing cognitive function in Alzheimer's patients.
It may also be helpful to improve circulation to the brain and chelate toxic metals by doing an Oral Chelation program.
