There is no conclusive documented evidence that any food or medicine per se" cures" alzheimer's. Foods like almonds, foods containing omega fatty acids like fish and shells are said to prolog the onset of alzheimer's but the findings are not validated by trials and studies.

It is very very less likely a brain cancer. But more detail about your headache is required. It appears most likely migraine headache. There is specific treatment for it, which can be taken under guidance of a neurologist so that the can be completely controlled. You also need some lifestyle modification.
