  1. Alzheimer is named for the German doctor who discovered it, Alois Alzheimer. Alzheimer is a disease that primarily affects people over the age of 65. It is degenerative and incurable. The national Alzheimer’s Association calls it the “defining disease of the baby boomers.”

    An Alzheimer diagnosis is a devastating event for both the patient and the family members. Managing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s is the best that you can do for a loved one who is afflicted with this debilitating disease.

    Many seniors take multiple prescription medications. It is wise to check with your doctor to assure that none of the natural remedies in this article will interfere with current medicines.

    Short Term Memory Loss:

    One of the first symptoms of Alzheimer is the inability to remember recent events that have occurred. Many people are not diagnosed with Alzheimer at this stage as this symptom is sometimes explained away as simply being a result of  “old age.”

    Whether the diagnosis of Alzheimer is made or not, the below remedies can improve both short and long-term memory for anyone.

    • Turmeric- this spice is found in most kitchens and is used primarily for flavoring. Although people who are hypoglycemic should only use small amounts of turmeric, others can use any amounts desired on and in foods. Turmeric has the added advantage of helping to relieve joint pain when applied topically.
    • Ginkgo is one of the oldest tree species on the planet. Ginkgo Leaf extract, found at herb stores, helps improve memory because it improves blood flow to the brain. Increased blood to the brain aids in short-term memory recall.
    • Onions contain a lot of phosphorous, which has been proven to aid in memory and the ability to concentrate and to think creatively.

    Confusions and Agitation:

    Imagine how frustrated that you would be if you suddenly became confused about something as simple as cooking a meal, or cleaning a room. Alzheimer’s patients endure severe personality changes resulting from becoming easily confused in later stages.

    • Omega 3 is found in fish oil capsules. It assists in healthy brain function by thinning the blood and increasing blood flow to the brain. Omega-3 oils are a type of essential fatty acid important for proper brain function, as well as for good immune and nervous system health.
    • Chamomile tea is a wonder drug for producing calm and relaxation. Choose the decaffeinated kind when you buy it.
    • Buy the herbs below in a ready-made formula at any herb store. The best formulas have all of these herbs combined in one formula. They all work to bring some calm and peace to the sufferers of Alzheimer.
