Alzheimer’s disease – also known as Morbus Alzheimer – is the most common form of dementia. Dementia is a generic term for all diseases in which all mental functions are lost, personality changes and performance steadily decreases as the nerve cells decay.
A sole treatment of Alzheimer’s with homeopathic remedies is not possible. However, there is nothing to speak against taking homeopathic remedies at the same time.

Causes of Alzheimer’s
The risk of developing Alzheimer’s increases with age. The cause of Alzheimer’s disease lies in the death of nerve cells in the regions of the brain responsible for language, memory and the ability to think. Why it dies off is not fully understood. Scientists suspect that hereditary factors also play a role, such as protein deposits, the so-called plaques and fibrils. Other risk factors are:
- thyroid dysfunction
- high blood pressure
Symptoms of Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s disease develops in three stages. Characteristic is the gradual loss of the ability to think and memory. Those affected become increasingly forgetful, lose orientation and the sense of time. In the next stage, there are problems finding words and movements can no longer be coordinated. With severe dementia, patients are no longer able to cope with everyday life on their own. They become bedridden and often remain silent.
Further tips and information on treatment
Therapy for Alzheimer’s disease is primarily aimed at relieving the symptoms, as this disease cannot be cured. However, if diagnosed early, the progression of the disease can be slowed down.
