Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss and dementia is now officially an epidemic. More people are affected with serious memory loss than ever before in human history. The Alzheimer’s Association’s new report shows that one in three seniors have dementia at their time of death and mortality from the disease has increased nearly 70 percent between 2000 and 2010. According to Dr. Michael Wald, The Blood Detective and Director of Nutrition at Integrated Medicine, “medications have proven a failure in treating the disease, but there are lifestyle improvements including diet and nutritional supplements that studies have shown delay the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease”.
People are now living longer than every…and now longer than every with memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. Baby Boomers are aging and it is expected that nearly 14 million people with have Alzheimer’s or related dementia by 2050. Funding of Alzheimer’s Disease through the National Institutes of Health is inadequate, and research into non-drug approaches is suspiciously lacking; research that has been done clearly shows benefit…beyond any benefit of memory -related medications. Alzheimer’s disease affects more than just memory. Reduced immunity and increased risk of infection, heart disease, hypertension and other health problems often tag-along with Alzheimer’s Disease. Omega 3 fatty acids, phosphatidylserine, bacopine, acetyl-l-carnitine, DMAE and ginkgo biloba extract are a few of the nutritional compounds proven in scientific studies to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia. The Mediterranean type diet, or components of it, have also benefit in delaying onset of many diseases including serious memory issues.
