Help with my Alzheimers Personal
My husband who is 73 years of age was diagnosed at Cook County Hospital and South Shore Osteopathic Hospital as having Alzheimers and Dementia symptoms. I was told that there was no hope, and that he would get progressively worse and worse. No drugs or dementia alternative or complementary medicine treatments were prescribed, so I took him home to care for him little hope for a remedy for his brain aging health disease, but a strong belief in God, I felt someone someday would do some good. The doctor wanted me to put him in the care of a nursing home because he also had a bad heart. I refused, and said I would do my best to care for him at home. I heard about a product called Vitacel GH-8, from a friend and decided to order it as the price was affordable and the Vitacel 8 was available in the USA. On three supplements a day, I noticed signs of improvement. His forgetfulness started to leave him, his memory improved and he started to remember things and even started to dress himself properly. Prior to taking GH-8 nutrient supplements, he would put on two of the same garment, sometimes inside out and with both socks on one foot. Other improving signs, was when he started to converse and answer the phone. He is not nervous anymore and although he canít completely say prayers, he can say them partially now. Praise the Lord.
What is Alzheimerís Disease
Alzheimerís disease is a progressive brain disorder in which nerve cells in the brain collapse and die, making it difficult for the brainís signals to be transmitted properly. A person with Alzheimers maladie or mal disease has problems with memory, judgment and thinking, which makes it hard for the person to work or take part in day-to-day family and social life. Changes in mood, personality and behavior also may occur.
There are two basic types of the disease: early-onset and late-onset Alzheimer's disease. Late-onset AD is the more common type, usually beginning after age 65.
What is early-onset Alzheimerís disease?
This is a rare form of Alzheimers disease in which individuals are diagnosed with the disease before age 65, usually in their 40s and 50s. Less than 10 percent of all Alzheimerís disease patients have this type. Symptoms of early-onset Alzheimerís disease are similar to those of late-onset, but the person often is still active with work, family and social activities when the signs and symptoms begin.
Signs and Symptoms of Early onset
Memory loss and Fogetfullness
Misplacing and forgetting things
Trouble performing familiar tasks and chores
Personality and behavior changes
Poor and decreased judgment
Impaired ability to communication
Inability to follow directions
Problems with speech and language
Impaired visuospatial skills
Emotional apathy and depression
Social withdrawal and less willingness to interact with family memebers and friends
Loss of motivation, initiative and drive
There is no cure for AD and no way to slow the progression of the disease. For some people in the early or middle stages of AD, medication such as tacrine (Cognex) may alleviate some cognitive symptoms. Donepezil (Aricept), rivastigmine (Exelon), and galantamine (Reminyl) may keep some symptoms from becoming worse for a limited time. A fifth drug, memantine (Namenda), was recently approved for use in the United States. Combining memantine with other AD drugs may be more effective than any single therapy. One controlled clinical trial found that patients receiving donepezil plus memantine had better cognition and other functions than patients receiving donepezil alone. There are many adverse side effects of prescription medications.
