The Prevention and Treatment of Dementia / Alzheimer's Disease & Post-Concussion Head Syndrome

"Senile dementia is the medical term for senility, the gradual loss of mental function that so often occurs with aging. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of senile dementia, accounts for more than 60 percent of the cognitive function disorders in the aging population. The first symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are usually mild forgetfulness. In the earlier stages of the disease, people with these conditions may forget how to do simple tasks, like brushing their teeth or combing their hair. During the more advanced phases, logical and rational thinking processes decline and they begin to have problems speaking, understanding, reading, or writing. People with advanced dementia or Alzheimer’s disease may become anxious or aggressive, or wander away from home. One of the hallmark features of Alzheimer’s disease involves plaque deposits between brain cells and a protein called beta-amyloid. The beta amyloid protein generates free radicals and inflammation, which destroys nerve cells and produces twisted, spaghetti-like masses called “neurofibrillary tangles”. "
