Educate Yourself

What is Alzheimer's?

Alzheimer's (AHLZ-high-merz) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks of daily living. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear after age 60. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia among older people.

What is Dementia?

Dementia (DEE-men-cha) is the loss of cognitive functioning—thinking, remembering, and reasoning—and behavioral abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s daily life and activities. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person’s functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living.

Many conditions and diseases cause dementia. Two of the most common causes of dementia in older people are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia, which is caused by a series of strokes or changes in the brain’s blood supply.

Other conditions that may cause memory loss or dementia include:

  • medication side effects
  • chronic alcoholism
  • tumors or infections in the brain
  • blood clots in the brain
  • vitamin B12 deficiency
  • some thyroid, kidney, or liver disorders

Many of these conditions are temporary and reversible, but they can be serious and should be treated by a doctor as soon as possible.

Emotional problems, such as stress, anxiety, or depression, can make a person more forgetful and can be mistaken for dementia. For instance, someone who has recently retired or who is coping with the death of a spouse may feel sad, lonely, worried, or bored. Trying to deal with these life changes leaves some people confused or forgetful. The emotional problems can be eased by supportive friends and family, but if these feelings last for a long time, it is important to get help from our health professionals or counselors.

   The "Divine Tree" Pau D'Arco

     Amazing Amazon Inner Tree Bark!

According to Dr. Dale Patterson at Wellness Clubs of America, current research is suggesting that "Alzheimer’s disease develops because cells in the central nervous system contain toxic substances and have lost their ability to produce energy. This presents exciting possibilities in the management of this devastating disease state.

One substance in particular are known to support cellular energy production and detoxification is in the South American tree bark extract called Pau D’Arco, or Taheebo. Lapachol, one of the substances found in Pau D’Arco, is capable of restoring proper energy production in cells. This in turn allows them to burn toxins that have accumulated over time."

Make sure to have a 2-4 cups of this tea a day.
