Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Function

Alzheimer's disease is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. As the baby boom generation ages, the incidence of Alzheimer's disease is expected to skyrocket. Although the symptoms of Alzheimer's usually appear after age 65, it can start developing much earlier–in a person's 40's or 50's. This underscores the need for early use of GSDL functional assessments to optimize the body's natural defenses against the brain neural loss associated with the disease.

Alzheimer's Disease and Adrenal Hormones: Chronic over secretion of the adrenal stress hormone cortisol is linked to accelerated brain atrophy, while another important adrenal hormone, DHEA, seems to protect the brain from degenerative damage.

Alzheimer's Disease and Oxidative Stress: Increased production of free radicals can damage important brain neurons at the crux of memory function.

Alzheimer's Disease and Fatty Acids: Detecting and treating fatty acid deficiencies seems to improve memory function in many patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's Disease and Menopause: Besides improving bone density and cardiovascular function, the female sex hormone estrogen may protect postmenopausal women from memory loss.

Alzheimer's Disease and Melatonin: One researcher suggests that melatonin imbalances are the main triggers behind memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's Disease and Element Imbalances: Overexposure to toxins such as mercury, cadmium, and aluminum is linked to severely impaired cognitive function and loss of memory.

Alzheimer's Disease and Amino Acids: Amino acid imbalances can disrupt the production of crucial neurotransmitters in the brain.
