disease is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.
As the baby boom generation ages, the incidence of Alzheimer's disease
is expected to skyrocket. Although the symptoms of Alzheimer's usually
appear after age 65, it can start developing much earlier–in
a person's 40's or 50's. This underscores the need for early use
of GSDL functional assessments to optimize the body's natural defenses
against the brain neural loss associated with the disease.
Alzheimer's Disease and Adrenal Hormones:
Chronic over secretion of the adrenal
stress hormone cortisol is linked
to accelerated brain atrophy, while
another important adrenal hormone,
DHEA, seems to protect the brain
from degenerative damage.
Alzheimer's Disease and Oxidative Stress: Increased production of free radicals can damage important brain neurons at the crux of memory function.
Disease and Fatty Acids:
Detecting and treating fatty acid deficiencies
seems to improve memory function in
many patients with Alzheimer's disease.
Disease and Menopause: Besides improving bone density and cardiovascular
function, the female sex hormone estrogen may protect postmenopausal
women from memory loss.
Disease and Melatonin: One researcher suggests that melatonin
imbalances are the main triggers behind memory loss associated with
Disease and Element Imbalances: Overexposure to toxins such
as mercury, cadmium, and aluminum is linked to severely impaired
cognitive function and loss of memory.
Disease and Amino Acids: Amino acid imbalances can disrupt the
production of crucial neurotransmitters in the brain.
