Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder that can affect majorly an individual’s memory and ability to communicate. According to recent studies, Alzheimer’s is caused by a combination of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. The cell damage usually starts in the area of the brain that controls memory and may start years before the first symptoms become noticed. Gradually, the cell damage expands to other areas of the human brain, causing the brain to shrink in the long term.

 

Diagnosis of Real Causes & Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease

  • Gradual restoration of cellular function
  • Personalized therapeutic protocols, without chemical residues and excipients
  • Treating the real causes
  • Therapeutic formulas that work alone or in combination with any other medication
  • Adopting a Molecular / Therapeutic Nutrition Plan

 

The main and most notable symptom of Alzheimer’s disease is memory loss. Gradually, other symptoms such as difficulty in concentrating, mood swings, apathy, irritability, aggressiveness, insomnia, delusions, extensive forgetfulness and/or social withdrawal can arise.

Your Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your symptoms could be indicative of Alzheimer’s Disease. Then your specialist may recommend a specialized blood test, an MRI scan or other molecular-level diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis. In most cases a consultation with a Neurologist may be suggested. Your personalized treatment plan will be based upon the diagnostic tests results, the symptoms described and your medical history overall.
