Alzheimer’s & Dementia Treatment
People are getting dementia earlier, with those in their late 40s now regularly diagnosed with the disease. Two decades ago, early-onset dementia was usually diagnosed in patients in their late 60s – but it is now often striking those who are even younger, a study found.
While the study found no single factor was responsible for the rise, pollution from aeroplanes and cars is believed to play a ‘major part’. ‘The environmental changes in the last 20 years have seen increases in the human environment of petro-chemicals – air transport, quadrupling of motor vehicles, insecticides and rises in background electro-magnetic field, and so on … it is not that we want to stop the modern world, but rather make it safer’. One in three born in 2015 could be hit by dementia: Experts warn of ‘looming national health crisis‘.
The Blood-Brain Barrier
The brain is the only organ known to have its own security system, a network of blood vessels that allows the entry of essential nutrients while blocking other substances. Unfortunately, this barrier is so effective at protecting against the passage of foreign substances that it prevents drugs from reaching the injured or diseased brain.
In addition, there is no single cause of Alzheimer’s or Dementia hence why conventional treatments have failed to work. People with Alzheimer’s and Dementia can have ‘multiple causes of the disease’ for example:
- Abnormal amounts of protein called amyloid plaques, tau fibres and a chemical called acetylcholine in the brain. These reduce the effectiveness of healthy neurons gradually destroying them over time thus reducing the electrical signals. This damage spreads to several areas of the brain, such as the grey matter (responsible for processing thoughts) and the hippocampus (responsible for memory).
- A lack of vitamin B and exposure to metals such as Lead, Mercury, Aluminium, Arsenic, Cadmium, Nickel and other metal poisons that flood the environment, invade our body and build up over time.
- Bacteria such as Porphyromonas gingivalis, a major cause of severe gum and tooth diseases can also contribute to the dementia and Helicobacter Pylori eradication found to be beneficial in treating symptoms of cognitive decline plus there are many other bacteria and viruses which contribute to cognitive decline.
- Other causes include Mycotoxins (waste products) from microbes which are highly acidic and interfere with brain signaling, STEP enzyme in the brain, Free radicals (oxidative stress), Microbes and Parasites in the organs (weakens the immune system), Prescription drugs, Lack of oxygen (as the body gets older, less oxygen is absorbed), Aspartame, Monosodium Glutamate, HVP, Cysteine and other ‘Excitotoxins’ and a lack of Magnesium and other essential Minerals/Vitamins.
- And many other environmental factors…
These multiple factors contribute to the degeneration of brain function but conventional drug based treatments are not able to penetrate the blood/brain barrier (BBB) or address these ‘multiple causes’ hence why there is no progress in tackling the disease. However our unique treatment process can jump the blood/brain barrier and ‘target ALL these multiple causes at the same time’ which makes our treatment and results much better.
The cognition test is a simple yet effective way to measure and screen for dementia and is used doctors and others around the world. It has 9 questions and a score of less than 4 indicates cognitive impairment. If the patient scores between 5 and 8 out of 9, there is no significant cognitive impairment but more information is needed.
We can help improve the cognitive ability of those with Early to Mid-Stage Alzheimer’s and help to recover the loss of memory that makes this disease so dreadful for the individual and their families.
Our treatment goals are simple, to help:
- Improve the cognition test score for people with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s to 5 or above
- Improve cognitive functions and communication skills, more alert and less confused
- Improve health and quality of life for those with cognitive problems
Danielle Age 53: Early-Stage Alzheimer’s: Cognition Test:
Pre-Treatment Score: 6/9 Post Treatment Score: 9/9 Feedback after first 3 sessions:
‘I feel steadier and more grounded. Walking has stabilized. I used to feel I was bouncing with each step, now experience while walking has returned to normal. Short term memory has also improved since I came for treatment (after only 2 sessions). Tinnitus is also quieter. Much easier to put on and take off jewellery. The constant tremor in my legs that has bothered me for the last six months and has affected my ability to walk has completely stopped after treatment. In my first GPCOG test I scored 6 out of 9 as I could not remember and mixed up the name and addresses. Since then I have been able to fully remember two names and addresses and scored 9 out of 9. Able to achieve deep feelings of calm and relaxation. This makes it easier to cope with illness. Improvements in many aspects of the disease. So far I am very pleased with the progress I have made’.
Nag Raja: Early-Stage Alzheimer’s: Cognition Test: Pre-Treatment Score: 2 Post Treatment Score: 8
A male patient aged 83, diagnosed with early onset 4 years ago attended for treatment and his initial cognition test score was 2 out of 9 (22.3%) which indicates ‘cognitive impairment’ as expected. After 1 treatment session his score improved to 3 out of 9 (33.45%) and after 2 sessions it had significantly improved to 8 out of 9 (88.9%) with greater physical stability and increased mental awareness.
‘I am 83 years old and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 4 years ago. I am early stage and it has affected me both mentally and physically. My treatment at the clinic started on Monday at that point I could not remember the therapists name after being introduced some 5 minutes earlier nor could I remember my own date of birth and personal details so had to use a diary and notes. I was very forgetful and could not recall my grandsons name or age when asked. My balance and walking were unsteady and my handshaking was so bad I could not drink from a cup without spilling it. On my first cognition test I scored 2 out of 9. After the first day of treatment at the centre I returned the following day and noticed my sleeping had improved to 4 hours during the night. My handshaking had greatly reduced and my cognition test score had improved slightly to 3 out of 9. I managed to recall certain facts explained to me about the treatment from the previous day. I have returned Wednesday for my third treatment session and have been retested on the cognition test. Today I have scored 8 out 9. I can remember my date of birth, news items from yesterday and feel much better both mentally and physically’. Nag Raja
Grace Adebowale – Mid-Stage Alzheimer’s: 2 Week Treatment Program – Cognition Score from 1 to 6
Grace’s is 79 with mid-stage Alzheimer’s but she has reduced the time taken to complete the test from over 8 minutes to over 6 minutes which is a significant difference and her cognition score has improved from 1 to 6 which is unheard of for people with mid-stage Alzheimer’s.
‘When I started in treatment I was not sleeping very well and did not sleep for more than 1 hour at a time, my eating was very poor and only ate once a day, I also complained about a pepper/burning feeling in my head which was cause of great discomfort 24 hours a day. After treatment I am now sleeping for 6 to 7 hours at a time and the burning sensation in my head has almost gone while my eating has improved and I am now enjoying 3 meals a day. Physically and mentally I feels much better, am more aware with a much better quality of life, I am is very happy with my improvements’. Grace
Eric Aged 64 – Early-Stage Alzheimer’s: 2 Treatments: Cognition Score from 2 to 7
“I feel much better in myself I can remember things instead of writing them down, happy with my progress. Before treatment I was very forgetful, now I can remember things which is all I wanted.” Eric
