(NaturalNews) A huge leap in the natural treatment of Alzheimer's disease was recently reported at the Neuroscience Conference in Washington by the National Center for Homeopathy. Homeopathic manufacturer and research organization, Heel, presented studies on a multi-target, combination homeopathic medicine that has proven effective for both relieving symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and influencing the reduction of the formation of amyloid plaques in the brains of patients. In-vitro and in-vivo studies were conducted in France and Finland, and confirm that subjects had enhanced learning abilities, an increase in their ability to recognize objects, and improvement in memory performance after treatment.

Classical homeopathy also offers patients hope. Classical homeopathy uses one remedy at a time, and may take a similar multi-targeted approach to treating Alzheimer's; however, the practitioner may either alternate or use several remedies in succession rather than giving them together in combination. The announcement from Heel allows people, who would otherwise not seek homeopathic treatment, to feel more confident of its efficacy.

What is Alzheimer's Disease?

Alzheimer's is an affliction of the brain causing the gradual deterioration of brain cells that result in the loss of memory, cognitive abilities and intelligence. The disease afflicts primarily the elderly and symptoms are often seen as early as the late 40s. Alzheimer's is the primary cause of dementia, a decline in brain performance, thinking skills and reasoning. The disease is caused by two abnormalities including neurofibrillary tangles (or bunches of altered proteins inside brain cells) and amyloid plaques (or fragments of proteins forming outside the brain cells).

Symptoms and Presentation

Alzheimer's most common early symptom is memory loss. Progressing age is the common denominator in the development of the disease, bringing difficulties in thinking, reasoning, communication and forgetfulness. Patients feel lost in familiar places and are unable to recognize their family members and friends. Loss of words, the ability to speak, and loss of judgment also characterize this disease. Additionally, patients may experience personality changes, becoming suspicious, angry, fearful, moody and highly dependent on family members and caretakers.

Homeopathic Treatment

Classical homeopathy aims to find the simillimum, or the remedy that covers the most prominent features of the case. Homeopathy can slow the progression of the disease and ease symptoms, as shown by the Heel studies. There is no single remedy effective for the treatment of all patients. However, several remedies are often associated with this disease.

Baryta Carb helps those who have regressed back to childish behavior. They may be fearful, timid and shy and lack confidence. There is loss of memory and some patients may suffer from chronic glandular disorders.

Natrum Sulf can often bring relief to those who are fixated with and dwell on past hurts and unpleasant events. They may feel sad and lonely, be filled with self-pity, or be unable to express the love they feel for others. These people often have headaches and painful joints.

Nux Vomica patients are often angry, quarrelsome and irritable, faultfinding and insensitive to other's feelings; however, they themselves are extremely sensitive to everything, becoming easily hurt and insulted.

Alumina is an excellent remedy for those who are depressed and afraid of losing their minds. They become confused with their identities and experience rapidly changing moods. Patients are often chilly, constipated, and very hurried in their actions and movements.

These and other well-chosen remedies can improve the quality of life for those suffering with the disease. People diagnosed with Alzheimer's should not treat themselves. Consult a knowledgeable homeopath familiar with caring for people with this disease.
