Alzheimers disease is a form of dementia that is present in many elderly patients, and of dementia patients, is the most prevalent type. Symptoms of Alzheimers can be categorized by forgetfulness, memory loss, changes in behavior, and even depression and lack of self-care. Dr. Durboff at Holistic Solutions understands how tough Alzheimers can be on both the patient, the family, and the caregiver. With natural and naturopathic medicine, Alzheimers treatment in Irvine is possible, and symptoms can often be arrested.
Scientists are unclear as to the cause of Alzheimers, and also have no real cure for the disease either. While some believe fibers are to blame for the destruction of some nerve cells, no one really knows. Because of this, we feel that it is important to keep the patient comfortable, serene, and happy. Alzheimers is a very progressive illness, however, patients can thrive during Alzheimers if symptoms can be slowed. Symptoms such as memory loss and behavioral changes have shown massive improvement with unconventional treatments.
Dr. Durboff believes that diet is a main factor in treating Alzheimers patients. Patients should steer clear of diets high in fat and cholesterol, and avoid refined sugars whenever possible. Patients should consume a diet of leafy greens, other vegetables, and low-fat dairy, with nuts, grains, and lean meats. More personalized and tailored advice can be given to the patient and family during a consultation with the doctor.
