It`s not uncommon to occasionally forget dates or lose items, and these events may become more common as we age. But while occasional memory slippage may be a normal consequence of getting older, Alzheimer`s disease is not. If memory problems interfere with one`s day-to-day activities, it may be time to seek a doctor`s help.


It`s important to understand the early signs of Alzheimer`s and to seek a medical diagnosis if several symptoms are noticed.


10 warning signs of Alzheimer`s:-

1. Memory loss.
2. Difficulty performing familiar tasks.
3. Problems with language.
4. Disorientation to time and place.
5. Poor or decreased judgment.
6. Problems with abstract thinking.
7. Misplacing things.
8. Changes in mood or behavior.
9. Changes in personality.
10. Loss of initiative.



Alzheimer`s Disease Risk Factors:-
Scientists have made significant progress in understanding the possible causes of Alzheimer`s disease, but many questions remain. It is likely that many factors, both inherited and environmental, interact in complex, poorly understood ways to cause the disease.



Alzheimer`s Symptoms Progression:-
Alzheimer`s disease is progressive, which means that symptoms worsen over time. How fast the disease progresses, and what pattern symptoms might follow, is variable by individual.


Diagnosing Alzheimer`s Disease:-
The only way to know for sure is to obtain a diagnosis from a well-trained medical professional, who will determine if symptoms might be due to other causes . If Alzheimer`s is the diagnosis, treatment should be started as soon as possible so that the person with the disease can be as involved as possible in treatment decisions and planning for the future.

Treatment:-
Alzheimer`s disease is difficult disoder. Homeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment if not cure.

Homeopathic medicine role in treatment of Alzheimer`s disease:-

-To control the disease process whereby further deterioration of the brain damage is helped to certain extent.
- To improve to an extent some of the symptoms: communication, failing memory, anxiety, restlessness, etc.
Many of the problems associated with dementia such as restlessness, depression, and agitation can be treated effectively and gently with homeopathy. It may also be possible, especially in the early stages of Alzheimer`s disease, to improve someone`s memory with homeopathic medication. Timely administered homeopathy medicines can prevent further progress of disease.
