World Alzheimer’s month is an International Campaign every September to help raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia.
This year marks the 7th world Alzheimer’s month. The notion behind this campaign is to help fight the stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s disease, to educate about the disease and begin to change the way we look at Alzheimer’s.
At CellQuicken we also wish to communicate that is treatable. And, by treating the origin with modern ultrasound, symptoms can be neutralized, managed and maintained.
In a previous article, I mentioned that every object, person and organ had a healthy vibration, and if that vibration is out of resonance, disease results and the imbalances can be treated with frequencies.
What is Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer's is a type and the most common cause of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 percent to 80 percent of dementia cases, but it is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older. But Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age.
It is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.
Facts about Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Dementia is a brain condition that affects parts of the brain that control thought, memory, and language.
- Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can seriously affect a person’s ability to carry out daily activities.
- The risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease increases with age, but Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging.
- Most people living with Alzheimer’s disease are older than 65 years. However, people younger than age 65 can develop Alzheimer’s disease but it is not common.
- Scientists do not know what causes Alzheimer’s disease. However, like other chronic conditions, it is probably a result of multiple factors.
- Controlling high blood pressure, exercising regularly, and quitting smoking may reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
When is memory loss more than forgetfulness?
Although everyone’s brain changes as they age, it’s important to understand that Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. Memory loss is typically one of the first warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, but occasionally forgetting words or names does not mean a person has Alzheimer’s. There are other signs that someone in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease may experience in addition to memory problems. In the early stages of the disease, these can include:
- Getting lost in familiar places.
- Having trouble handling money and paying bills.
- Repeating questions.
- Taking longer to complete normal daily tasks.
- Displaying poor judgment.
- Losing things or misplacing them in odd places.
- Displaying mood and personality changes.
It’s also important to know Alzheimer's is not the only cause of memory loss.
Many people have trouble with memory — this does NOT mean they have Alzheimer's. There are many different causes of memory loss.
