Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that gives birth to dementia. It affects mental as well as physical health. The treatment process of Alzheimer’s disease focuses on reducing the symptoms of the disease and helping the patient in recovering the ability to perform daily tasks. In the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease, a person loses the ability to perform brain functions which could even result in death. There is no permanent cure for Alzheimer’s disease in conventional treatment options.

Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic neurological disorder that causes memory loss and loss of cognitive movement. In this disease, the brain cells get degenerate and die.
An Alzheimer’s patient develops memory issues and has a tendency to forget recent events. It becomes difficult for an Alzheimer’s patient to perform daily tasks with ease and often requires the help of others.
Alzheimer’s is said to be a progressive form of dementia disease( a continuous decline in thinking, behavioural and social skills). Alzheimer’s disease disrupts a person’s ability to perform routine activities and forces them to require assistance.
The exact cause of Alzheimer’s disease is not known yet but is said to be caused by a combination of various factors such as environment, lifestyle, and genetics. Alzheimer’s is caused by the death of brain cells due to problems with brain proteins that disrupt the functioning of brain cells. Neurons in the brain get damaged and lose connection with each other. Genetics is one cause that has been identified by a number of medical experts throughout the world.
A person affected with Alzheimer’s disease shows many signs and symptoms of the disease which can be easily identified. A person’s ability to perform Cognitive and behavioural functions gets highly damaged. Some common signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are:
The severity of the symptoms could vary in each case and mostly depends on the level or stage of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is an irreversible degenerative disease. However, a few healthy lifestyle choices can keep it at bay to quite an extent.
1) Physical Exercises: Various forms of physical activity or exercises can help maintain a healthy state of mind. A small session of workout helps in getting more blood to the brain with more oxygen, resulting in a healthier mind. A regular habit of walking, or doing yoga asanas or pranayama can boost the working of your nervous system.
2) Dieting: A good mix of nutritious diet will be best for the heart as well as the brain. Adding fruits, vegetables, protein-rich foods, and whole-grain foods will help a lot in staying healthy. Try to minimize sugar, alcohol, and fats present in meats and dairy products
3) No smoking: Avoid all types of tobacco products at all costs.
4) Check Old Injuries: In case you had an injury, or accident where the damage was on or near the brain, it could turn into Alzheimer’s later in life. Take care of those wounds with regular medical check-ups.
5) Challenge Your Brain: Try to learn new things to keep your mind active. Socializing, meeting new people, talking about your likes, dislikes, and emotional baggage, playing any indoor games you like and having a good laugh once in a while, can greatly help maintain a positive mindset and keep your brain neurons active and alive.
