Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting over half of all dementia sufferers.
Alzheimer's disease is caused by a loss of brain cells, probably related to an imbalance in the chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain, which acupuncture and herbal treatment is specialist in.
How are people affected?
Over time, their mental abilities deteriorate, gradually progressing through forgetting important matters, getting confused about where they are and what day it is, to becoming lethargic and withdrawn and starting to neglect personal hygiene.
The sufferer may tend to dwell in the past and mistake friends and neighbors for long-departed family members. Conversation may become repetitive and the personality may alter as people develop odd or uncharacteristic behaviors.
In the later stages of the illness, sufferers lose insight and may not be aware of their plight, which makes the disease particularly hard for careers to bear.
