A form of dementia, Alzheimers disease not only can be devastating to the patients who suffer with it, it can be extremely tough on friends, family members, and caregivers as well. As a progressive illness, there is no clear cause of Alzheimers, and also no known cure. Most schools of thought are devoted toward making the patient’s life more comfortable after the onset of Alzheimers, while making care easier for the caregiver. There are safe and natural remedies for Alzheimers treatment in Carlsbad, and Dr. Durboff of Holistic Solutions is committed to helping his patients feel better.
A more natural approach to medicine, naturopathic medicine explores other conventional treatment methods in order to make the patient more comfortable. A big part of Alzheimers treatment deals with diet. Dr. Durboff of Holistic Solutions advises his patients to avoid diets that are high in sodium and refined sugar, and to eat as healthily as possible, enjoying foods high in fiber and protein, and leafy, green vegetables. Patients should avoid high cholesterol diets with protein and butter, and derive their protein from dairy products that are low in fat, tofu, nuts, and foods containing lean meat.
Symptoms of Alzheimers include forgetfulness, confusion, but also behavioral changes such as aggressiveness and lack of self-care. With simple and natural treatment, these symptoms can be arrested and kept at bay. Dr. Durboff well understands the concerns of the Alzheimers patient in addition to those presented by friends, family, and loved ones.
