Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible and progressive degenerative disease of the cells of the cerebral cortex and surrounding structures, of still unknown cause, leading to a series of biochemical disorders and consequent psychological symptoms. This disease is a form of dementia and rarely occurs in people under 65 years of age. The disease is mostly accompanied by a decrease in blood supply to the brain, and as it varies from case to case, so does the level of memory loss from person to person.

The causes of Alzheimer's disease are still insufficiently known, so it is concluded that the risk age is supported by genetic predispositions. Other causes could be recurrent strokes, a diet lacking in fatty acids, a lack of the female hormone estrogen, and stress. Smokers, people who have high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol levels are more prone to developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The ability to function independently on a daily basis is becoming more and more limited, acquired hygienic habits are being neglected. Patient become more and more dependent on others every day. The onset of the disease, although much rarer, can be acute and dramatic. All the symptoms of the disease appear at once, unexpectedly and suddenly, most often at the same time as some physical illness or emotional shock. The patient becomes confused, disoriented, psychomotorly disturbed (rarely slowed down), perception, thinking, emotions, wakefulness-sleep cycle are disturbed. This condition is called delirium and requires urgent and intensive hospital treatment.

Today, the diagnosis of Alzheimer's dementia is made primarily on the basis of the clinical picture, heteroanamnestic data and auxiliary psychometric methods. EEG, CT, PET and MR can also help in making the diagnosis. Therapeutic options are still very modest and are aimed primarily at alleviating the acute symptoms of the disease. A cure for Alzheimer's disease / dementia has not yet been found. Certain plants have shown the property of slowing down or preventing the appearance of this disease. Some herbs improve blood circulation, while some alleviate mood swings, anxiety and sleep problems that Alzheimer's sufferers suffer from.
