DEMENTIA/ALZHEIMERS

Dementia is the term applied to a group of symptoms that negatively impact memory, but Alzheimer's is a progressive disease of the brain that slowly causes impairment in memory and cognitive function. Integrative medicine disease management protocols have been used to successfully manage Dementia/Alzheimer’s.

Understanding Dementia – What is Dementia?

When people hear the word dementia, it is easy to jump to conclusions about what it is and what happens. We have put together this guide to help you with understanding the disease and how to find resources and information.

Spotting the symptoms of Dementia

The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or speech and language problems.

These changes are often small to start with, but for something with dementia they become severe enough to affect everyday life. A person with dementia may also experience change in their moods and behaviours.

What causes Dementia?

Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia but not all dementia is due to Alzheimer’s. The specific symptoms that someone with dementia can experience will depend on the parts of the brain that are damaged and the type of disease that is causing the dementia.
