Phytotherapeutic Perspectives on Dementia

Phytotherapeutic Perspectives on Dementia

60 minutes  

It is estimated that dementia is experienced by about 10% of the population at some point in their lives and is one of the most common causes of disability in the aged. The disorder represents a significant psychosocial and financial burden for families and yet there are very few medical interventions that are effective, providing ample opportunity for holistic interventions to play a role.

This lecture provides an in-depth review of dementia, the different disorders it is associated with including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and Parkinsonism, and the multiple pathological factors that contribute to its development including beta-amyloid, tau protein, spirochetal disease, metabolic issues, environmental pollution, and nutritional disorders. This lecture will also provide a review of traditional perspectives on the aging brain, and drawing from these practices as well as the latest research to provide some important strategies in the holistic prevention and treatment of dementia.
