Alzheimer’s Disease – Natural Remedies

Author: Edward F. Group III, D.C., Ph.D, N.D.,CCN 

Lifestyle changes for AD patients begin with diet and exercise. Proper nutrition plays a vital role in the health of the AD patient. The diet should include lots of lean protein to help build and replace muscle tissue, plenty of complex carbohydrates, which is essentially sugar for sustaining the muscles and nerves, and adequate amount of fat to provide the body with a store of energy to draw upon once the carbohydrates have done their job. In addition, the body must also obtain the minerals and vitamins necessary for brain, muscle and bone development, and lots of water to help replace electrolytes loss due to sweating.

A proper nutritional program should include good sources of protein such as organic poultry, beef, pork, fish, eggs, cheese, legumes, nuts, and corn, a rich source of complex carbohydrates such as organic vegetables, grains, and fruit, and fat, some of which are more helpful than others but necessary for overall health. Healthy oils should include organic coconut oil, and olive or canola oil.

 

Remember that many foods, especially baked goods, contain aluminum.  Train yourself to read labels carefully.  Choose nonaluminum baking powder, avoid pickling salts and self-rising flour.  Do not use aluminum pots and pans or beverages that are packaged in aluminum cans.  Do not use aluminum foil.

 

In addition the nutritional program should also include the following vitamins and minerals. Some of these may have been covered in the previous section. Their importance in the over scheme of things is why they are repeated here.

Exercise

 

Alzheimer's disease is associated with a progressive impairment of central nervous system function. Recent memory is poor, the special senses deteriorate, reflexes are slow, and coordination is impaired. There are sometimes other limitations which developed simply because of age or attributed to the onset of Alzheimer's. Some of these limitations include loss of vision and hearing. Also reflexes and movements slow substantially. The patient develops poor posture, low mechanical efficiency, is unable to keep a steady hand, and loses muscle tissue, which when compounded causes stress, aggressive behavior, and depression in some patients.

The emphasis is now on the care provider to develop an exercise program specially tailored to the physical, medical and mental condition of the individual patient.

 

The ideal program must be one where the AD patient feels safe, and knows it will be effective and motivating so as to keep up the regimen. Without such a program the continuing deterioration of cardiovascular function and muscular strength will inevitably occur.

 

That is why it is critically important for the patient to maintain reasonable flexibility of major joints.

 

Some simple cardiovascular exercises can include the movement of the arms and shoulder. If the patient is in a wheel chair some simple exercises that mimic both cycling and rowing can be done or the facility can invest in an arm and wheelchair ergo meters.

 

Muscle exercise can also be done even if room is limited by tensing one muscle group against the back of the chair or bed. Also, weight such as books can be balanced on the ankles. This can help the leg muscle and can be given to the patient in the form of a game.

 

Flexibility can be improved by taking the joint through its full range of movements, if however the joints have become painful, the activities can be done is a heated swimming pool or by using a heated compress support.

 

Walking is the ideal exercise for preventing osteoporosis and mood changes. A daily walk will allow you to get 30 minutes of sunlight on the skin every day. It also a perfect group exercise, an opportunity for social contact, and a pleasant and relaxing experience. It strengthens the leg muscles to a degree. But the main benefits to both the patient and care provider could be significant. The patient's quality of life can improve in such a way that the care provider may no longer have to assist the patient even with a simple task as getting off a toilet seat. Basic regular exercise can provide such dramatic benefits to patients it should be strongly recommended to all Alzheimer's patients.
