  1. In Alzheimer's disease, a large number of small nodules consisting of amyloid protein form in the cortex and subcortex of the brain (this distinguishes Alzheimer's disease from all other dementias). These nodules destroy the connections between neurons. This process is irreversible and cannot be stopped. More and more nodules are formed – more and more neurons lose their connection with each other.

    Loss of connections between neurons leads first to forgetfulness, absent-mindedness. First, the memory is affected by current events, then spreads further and further into the past. Self-service skills are lost. The patient becomes untidy. Stops navigating to the current date, then can't name the current day of the week. Later it can't name the current month, then the year, or time of year. But he remembers his date of birth perfectly, although he doesn't know his age anymore. Speech is disrupted: it becomes poorer, more primitive. The patient learns something new with great difficulty.

    Long months and years pass. The patient's sleep is disturbed, hallucinations and fragmentary delusions appear. The memory is already so broken that it does not recognize neighbors, distant acquaintances. Doesn't know his way around the apartment, can't remember where the toilet or kitchen is. Then the disorganization of neurons reaches the point that the function of the pelvic organs is disrupted. A person cannot control urination and bowel movement. Such people wear diapers. Soon he won't recognize his next of kin either.

    Then the gait is disturbed. It becomes shuffling, slow. Then the person stops walking at all-lies only in bed. Speech disappears: the person only grunts, shouts, groans, pronounces syllables.

    Bottom line: a person can't walk, can't talk, doesn't recognize anyone, can't eat on their own, urinates in diapers. Just lies in bed like a vegetable. Death often occurs from congestive pneumonia.

    Mentally, a person turns into a baby (just like in the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”).

  2. In simple terms, people with Alzheimer's disease are no different from a 2-3-year-old child. Let's just say that development is reversed…

  3. In fact, it is dementia – a slow degradation with loss of cognitive functions.

    Alzheimer's disease or early dementia is now becoming more common. Doctors all over the world are looking for new ways to stop the disease and, if possible, restore a person's mental state.

    This disease often progresses quite quickly and patients can lose their memory and cognitive functions very quickly. In severe conditions, people cannot maintain a conversation and react to the environment, and they begin to experience difficulties in self-care.

  4. The disease begins to develop with a state of pre-dementia-short-term memory suffers, changes in logical and abstract thinking appear. A person may forget the meaning of certain words, and it becomes more difficult for them to focus and concentrate on a particular object or action.

    The period of pre-dementia can last from several months to several years. The main task is not to ignore changes in the behavior of a loved one.

    From the point of view of disease prevention, it is important to lead an active lifestyle and exercise more often. Our brain also needs exercise, so it's worth reading more books, learning foreign languages, and solving puzzles. You should put your diet in order, include more vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and fish, and minimize salt intake.

    Give up smoking, try to avoid head injuries, stressful situations, monitor your sugar and cholesterol levels, and measure your blood pressure.

    The course of Alzheimer's disease is irreversible, but there are drugs that can slow down the death of neurons, improve the patient's condition and prolong conscious life. Massages, physical therapy classes, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, sessions with a speech therapist and an art therapist showed their effectiveness””

  5. In short, Alzheimer's is a mental illness that causes partial memory loss. It's like dementia, but! Dementia can occur at an age when, for example, you forget how old you are. Dementia develops after the coronavirus. Also, dementia is not a partial loss of memory, but too frequent “I forgot” when you don't remember what you ate for breakfast, just like with me(… Alzheimer's disease, this is when you realize without any brain damage that you have amnesia. People with such a disease sometimes have a person say to you in simple colloquial speech: “Mmm… Who are you anyway?”?? No sarcasm. Or he talks and just can't remember as he runs… What is the name of an item, i.e. there is something like: “Close this…… But in fact, the word does not have the same complex name as the disease itself, but on the example of the patient, he wanted to close the window. We sometimes think that such people are just joking when responding to hello: “leave me alone, stranger” or that they're nuts. The diagnosis is obvious: Alzheimer's disease!!!

  6. The brain turns on the program to forget the loss .Chronic separation conflict.

    The disease itself is a biologically-based process, from the point of view of modern psychosomatics. And it occurs as a reaction of our body to adapt to a stressful situation and emotional conflict.

    Getting sick is not so easy, the life situation must be: dramatic, isolated, unexpected, unsolvable and long in time. Example, tonsillitis-conflict of a piece , I can't swallow a piece (prey) that I already have in my mouth. A person is delayed payment, the salary of which was suddenly delayed and every day they are “fed breakfast”, at this moment the amygdala is growing. At the moment when he receives a salary , his conflict is resolved, angina begins

    Therefore, any organ has a reason to “get sick” and it is associated with a conflict experience . If you are interested in the cause of a particular disease, you can write in private messages.

  7. Specialists of the Complutense University of Madrid have discovered a substance in the herbal decoction of Ayahuasca that promotes the formation of new neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. The substance may be effective against the deadly Alzheimer's disease.
    Ayahuasca probably so it would be more correct to pronounce this Spanish name, even more likely Indian. Indian drink. A decoction of various herbs and mushrooms that shamans make. This type of decoction transports a person to another dimension, helps to reveal the true cause of us on earth. I've had some experience using it. I lived 4 years in Mexico, and 7 years in Venezuela. In general, a very strange feeling. You can read about this drink on the Internet in Wikipedia. But it is better to read of course in the original language of Spanish or Portuguese. There is very little information in Russian.

  8. Alzheimer's disease is a gradual decline in mental abilities, the mechanism of which is not fully understood, and an effective antidote for which has not yet been discovered. In her response, Hera vividly illustrated some of the symptoms and evolution of this disease. Put yourself in the shoes of an 86-year-old grandmother: this deadly disease is as scary from the inside as it is from the outside. It puts a terrible burden on the shoulders of both the patient himself and those around him, those closest to him. For the latter, it becomes a rigorous test of humanity. Alas, few survive it.

    A person who was doing a lot of things perfectly, who was a model for you and your friends in many ways, now suddenly loses memory, and with it all other mental abilities, degenerates before your eyes.

    On the other hand, he (she), like a child, asks for your affection, kindness, patience, tact.

    The disease is getting younger and mowing people down right and left. In the United States, nationwide campaigns are being conducted to draw public and government attention to this disease and its victims, and to raise funds to finance relevant research and development. �We have a website and VK groups.

    I wrote this so that you can understand that Alzheimer's is a naked nerve, not a cause for ridicule.

  9. A person does not remember what happened recently, but at the same time, as a rule, remembers bright moments from life, as if it were yesterday (what was 20-40 years ago). In general, first of all, memory suffers, and this leads to some kind of disorientation. + auditory/visual hallucinations may occur. For example, a person can hear / see people. Sometimes paranoid phenomena occur (they want to rob me, they are watching me). Brain cells suffer, hence the suffering of the person himself and those close to him… My great-grandmother had this disease at the age of 86, she forgot what I looked like sometimes. Once, in the middle of the night, she got up and went to the entrance, dressed like a mother, knocked on the concierge's door with a demand to call the police, because in her opinion, someone settled in her house and they want to kill her (I moved in with her, slept in the next room). It was scary sometimes, after this incident, I removed all the piercing cutting objects away. Once, she went up to the mirror and said, ” Who is this?” and I said, “It's you,” and she said, ” What's that? Why so old? How old do you think I am”, “Grandma, you are 86″, ” No! What are you talking about? I'm 60.” Somehow, in my opinion, the case described by me fully describes the essence of the disease and its manifestations.
