To prevent or treat or both, by anecdote or double blind trials or both, as individual supplementation or in combination and if latter which, through diet or nutraceutical or pharmaceutical or variable? Many of us would be really interested to read source material for this application as it's such an important medical condition. Maybe we should have separate subforums for really important conditions? I recommend GC starts and leads a subforum on this topic (Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatments for Alzheimer's). Anyone care to second (and volunteer to moderate)?

It will be interesting to see which are better than placebos.

Not a bad idea! Pure water is essential to brain health.

Too bad we can't do double blind studies for water! What placebo could you use?

Interesting idea. Not the best idea, but you might be able to have two different groups, one controlled and one "placebo". Tell both groups water intake is part of the standardized diet and have the two consume different quantities. Then have them both take a sugar pill as "treatment".

I would be down to moderate (if I can be trusted lol). I am over Memtrax so you don't have to worry about that smile.gif I can try and get a few doctor friends of mine to share their current research as well.

For now, I am going to pin some topics in the medicine forum for each of the major neurological conditions. We will need to get LD involved if we want to create sub- forums.

General Facts About Alzheimer's Disease


Well, reasonably and objectively, most people with certain amount of general medical knowledge would know that Alzheimer’s disease is actually a degenerative brain disorder that destroys neurons and neural networks / connections in the cerebral cortex, resulting in significant loss of brain mass. And as such, Alzheimer’s disease naturally should be medically diagnosable through brain scans.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alzheime..._comparison.jpg - Alzheimer's disease brain comparison.jpg

From: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Next, generally & certainly, under usual circumstances, that could just be a normal metabolic & physiological phase / process of aging particularly when people get older and older.


Other than that, under other rarely known scenario, it’s very much worthy to take note that, apart from the genetic and congenital factors as sometimes being suggested, and given the undisputed fact that Alzheimer’s disease invariably involves the phenomenon of brain damages, then the related post-birth causes of it should be reasonably, objectively & inclusively taken into consideration as well, whilst one of the many examples would be the neurodegenerative side effects of certain mind-altering drugs as explained through the excerpts below:


Extrapyramidal Symptoms

A network of neurons responsible for the motion in a body with coordination is called as extrapyramidal system. The extrapyramidal system gets affected in a number of ways thereby causing extra pyramidal symptoms (EPS), a set of symptoms that relate to the attack in the extrapyramidal system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extrapyramidal_system.

Causes of extrapyramidal symptoms:

Use of antipsychotic drug causes extrapyramidal symptoms in most people. Anti psychotic medicines such as haloperidol used in curing schizophrenia can trigger extrapyramidal symptoms.

Brain damages are one of the causes of extrapyramidal symptoms.


as quoted from :


Extrapyramidal Symptoms
