Acupuncture improves the quality of life of Alzheimer's patients

Alzheimer's disease has been diagnosed by first time in 1906, by Lois Alzheimer. It usually affects people over 65, although there are cases in younger. So far, despite the advancement of medicine, it is incurable. The initial symptoms of the disease are irritability, aggression, mood swings, speech difficulties, brain degeneration and especially memory loss.

Even though it has no cure, Alzheimer's Disease can be attenuated through multidisciplinary treatment , involving caregivers, family members, neuro-psychiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, neuropsychologists, speech therapists, and more recently the acupuncturist.

"Acupuncture is an important ally of Alzheimer's disease carriers. signs and symptoms of the disease. "

However, the contribution that acupuncture can give to Alzheimer's disease patients is little explored. This is due to a lack of knowledge on the part of neurologists, psychiatrists and other health professionals about the potential of this method in the treatment of the disease. Acupuncture is an important ally of people with Alzheimer's disease.

This ancient Chinese method treats the signs and symptoms of the disease, such as cognitive changes, forgetting of recent and ancient events, motor impairment, mood swings, fatigue, among others , thus providing a better quality of life for the patient and, consequently, more comfort to family members.

The method stimulates the hippocampus, memory-related (long-lasting) brain region, and also some neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine. This contributes to a life with less forgetfulness. In a recent study, scientists at the Wellesley College Wellesley College of Women Research Center in Wellesley, Mass., And the University of Hong Kong reported promising results from two small studies at a medical researchers' meeting In the Wellesley study, 11 people with dementia (10 with Alzheimer's and one with vascular dementia - a related condition) were treated with acupuncture twice a week for three months. Tests completed before and after the study measured cognitive and mood function in the following study subjects and an analysis showed that the treatments significantly reduced depression and anxiety. Already the Hong Kong study, in which eight patients with Alzheimer's were treated for 30 days, concluded that there was significant improvement in cognition, verbal skills, motor coordination, and overall severity of Alzheimer's symptoms. Additional studies are under way to replicate the findings and further explore the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of mood and behavioral disorders associated with Alzheimer's.

Most of the time, long-term gains are achieved with a chronic and persistent, performed twice a week. Both the motor area and even the cognition, which is the central part affected by the disease, actually benefit from this type of unconventional treatment. During therapy, stitches are located that are located between the elbows and hands and between the knees and feet, in addition to the points of the ears, nape and scalp. Acupuncture also acts in the prevention of other degenerative diseases.

Uninterrupted and continuous treatment with acupuncture inhibits or even suppresses the expression of pathological genes that lead to the manifestation of diseases that we carry dormant in our genes and that we are not aware of of this. By promoting the balance of mental and organic functions in general, the method also decreases or prevents the onset of degenerative diseases.
