Alzheimers is a cognitive disorder where the neurons of the brain become damaged over time. This condition is widespread and costly both emotionally and financially. Understanding this disease mey better help us in preventing its ocurrance.
A new drug is showing promise towards the treatment of Alzheimers.
Here is my perspective as an evidence based herbalist and some suggestions for where we could focus our research to make it even better.
With an aging population, one of the major concerns is Alzheimers and other forms of Dementia, which unfortunalty has no cure. Alzheimers and dementia (AD), has become a major epidemic in North America. An estimated 1 in every 9 people over 65 in America have Alzheimers. World wide, nearly 44 million people have Alzheimers, or a similar dementia costing the world roughly 605 billion dollars . In light of this, it has become increasingly important to find ways to prevent this disease before it arrives.
