What is Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with the disease.
Those with the late-onset type symptoms first appear in their mid-60s.
Early-onset Alzheimer’s occurs between a person’s 30s and mid-60s and is very rare.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia among older adults.
The disease is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer. In 1906, Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. Her symptoms included memory loss, language problems, and unpredictable behavior. After she died, he examined her brain and found many abnormal clumps (now called amyloid plaques) and tangled bundles of fibers (now called neurofibrillary, or tau, tangles).
According to the World Health Organisation; Worldwide, around 50 million people have dementia, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year.
What Causes Alzheimer’s Disease
Like all types of dementia, Alzheimer’s is caused by brain cell death. It is a neurodegenerative disease, which means there is progressive brain cell death that happens over time. In a person with Alzheimer’s, the tissue has fewer and fewer nerve cells and connections.
Although the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) have not been completely characterized, inflammation within the central nervous system is now thought to play a key role in the development of the plaque associated with brain cell death.
Recent publications have shown that Spirochetes, the bacterias involved in Lyme disease, were found in 90% of the people who suffer from AD. Other research groups showed that bacteria involved in periodontitis were also linked to the development of the disease. All these concurrent results on the role of brain infection and inflammation in the development of AD show the importance of restoring a strong and balanced immune system in order to stop the progress of the disease.
Benefits of Embryonic Stem Cells Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment
mbryonic Stem Cells, (ESC), have a direct effect on the immune system which appears more regulated within days of commencing stem cell therapy. ESCs are able to successfully alleviate most chronic inflammations such as arthritis and Crohn’s disease and as suchrepresent the best defense against the development of Alzheimer’s Disease, especially in the early stages.
The second benefit of ESC for patients who suffer from AD is the repair of lost brain function.
While it has been long thought that lost neurons cannot be recovered, recent studies have shown that it is possible to regrow neurons and neuronal connections. This is especially true of ESC which have been shown to trigger regrowth following severe brain injuries and similar results in the case of AD.
Results vary depending on the stage of the disease but most AD patients have seen improvements following only 3 injections of 20 million ESC. Injections through lumbar puncture are also recommended.
