Recognizing the Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease
While everyone of a certain age tends to get somewhat forgetful, if you notice it happening more than usual, or you are forgetting important things like doctor appointments or birthdays, you may be in the early stages of Alzheimer disease. These symptoms often become magnified and serve as early warning signals of impending dementia and signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease doctors MD Wellness will help you determine if your symptoms are a sign of pre-dementia and whether you would benefit from natural treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
Stages of Alzheimer Disease
One of the first stages of Alzheimer disease is pre-dementia, also known as pre-senile dementia. It is a name given to a chronic functional problem where you suffer from memory loss, personality changes, inability to concentrate and perform normal tasks, and emotional instability for no apparent reason. Pre-dementia is often associated with other chronic degenerative diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Symptoms of Pre-Dementia and Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease
As part of the early stages of Alzheimer disease, pre-dementia afflicts individuals during middle age, usually between ages 45 and 55, and is much less common than dementia in the elderly. There are several symptoms you should be aware of that will help you to recognize if you or your loved one may be experiencing the onset of pre-dementia.
Causes of Pre-Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
Pre-dementia is usually multi-factorial. Some of the contributing causes may be high levels of oxidative stress, malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, poor bowel health, hormonal imbalances, metabolic imbalances, chronic inflammation, immune system imbalances and poor glycemic control. Often times, high estrogen, low progesterone ratios, is contributory as well.
Natural Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease
Symptomatic treatment of pre-dementia is usually unsuccessful. Only finding and treating the root cause of your problem through natural treatment for Alzheimer’s disease will lead to a successful outcome.
If you are suffering from pre-dementia, you must pay very close attention to your diet. You may suffer from excessive levels of free fatty acids in your brain. Therefore, you need to avoid fried foods, food additives and neurotoxic agents (MSG, aspartame, nitrates, nitrites).
You may also suffer from low blood sugar problems. Low blood sugar will affect brain chemistry, as glucose is the major fuel for the brain. Therefore, low bloodsugar is one of the primary culprits involved in pre-dementia. However, high blood sugar can also contribute to pre-dementia as high sugar levels accelerate the damage done by oxidative stress.
Another poorly recognized yet common cause of dementia is chronic brain inflammation secondary to exposure to the interior of a water-damaged building and mold. A special MRI known as NeuroQuant can distinguish between a normally aging brain and a brain suffering from biotoxin illness.
Alzheimer’s disease doctors MD Wellness believe that all chronic ailments such as pre-dementia are related to an imbalance in your system. The treatment for pre-dementia too often treats the ailment without finding what is causing it in the first place. We believe in “find the cause, fix the cause” in hopes of giving our patients who are experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer disease a better quality of life moving forward.
