ALZHEIMER’S & MEMORY LOSS
What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. At first, someone with Alzheimer’s disease may notice mild confusion and difficulty remembering. Eventually, people with the disease may even forget important people in their lives and undergo dramatic personality changes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a group of brain disorders that cause the loss of intellectual and social skills. In Alzheimer’s disease, the brain cells degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.
Please look at the following research articles in regards to the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on Alzheimer’s:
- Hyperbaric Oxygen and Ginkgo Biloba Extract Inhibit Aβ25-35-induced Toxicity and Oxidative Stress in vivo: A Potential Role in Alzheimer’s Disease: This study shows how mixing hyperbaric oxygen with Aβ25-35 may help treat Alzheimer’s. The results of this study showed that hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduced cell toxicity and oxidative stress in Alzheimer’s disease.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Alzheimer’s Disease:This article explains how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help treat Alzheimer’s and how this occurs.
- Influence of hyperbaric oxygen on serum estrogen level in patients with Alzheimer’s disease: This article will show how increased serum estrogen levels may help treat Alzheimer’s. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps treat Alzheimer’s and this may be because of the increase in serum estrogen.
