Alzheimer's Disease - Know How Immune System Triggers It!

Alzheimer's Disease is a neurological problem that is characterised by a cognitive decline and memory loss. It is a type of neurodegenerative dementia. The symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease include not being able to absorb and retain new information, lack of reasoning and judging, not being able to take on complex tasks, impaired visuospatial abilities, problems in reading, writing and speech, among many others. If a person has at least two of these symptoms in a debilitating manner, then the diagnosis can be made in favour of Alzheimer's Disease. The main causes of Alzheimer's are shrinkage of the brain size and death of the brain cells. The immune system is also said to trigger this neurodegenerative disease. Let us find out what medical science has found so far.

1. Connections: Many a times, in Alzheimer's disease, the memory and behaviour of the person changes because the brain is unable to make proper neural connections which can lead to memory loss of how a person behaved and the elements that formed the basis of the patient's cognition. Apparently, the immune system behaves in the same way within the brain and blocks the connection. This happens because there is constant communication between the brain and immune system along neurological lines, which is where the disease first emanates.

2. Inflammation: The brain is prone to inflammation or swelling that is not the normal kind. This inflammation happens as a result of the activation of the infection fighting neurotransmitters and the chemical changes that happen in the brain when an infection strikes. The inflammation usually happens in the plaques or clumps which the brain tries to protect. These clumps are made up of a protein called Amyloid. The immune system is responsible for creating this inflammation in the brain of the patient.

3. Pattern Recognition Receptors: Many of these receptors work in different manners and cooperate with each other to create a response in the brain. These PRRs can be found in the brain plaques, and they develop the signs of danger which further fuels the inflammation in the brain as a matter of protection.

4. Activation of Cells Linked with the Immune System: When the PRRs begin to respond, it basically activates the immune system and the cells of the same. This is the basic reaction that causes the changes in brain which then leads to the attachment of the protein to the tissue that is diseased, in which case Alzheimer's Disease starts. The inflammation that we had spoken about earlier basically happens in the nervous tissue.

It is important to recognise and act on the initial signs of Alzheimer's Disease before it progresses beyond one's control.

Hello doctor. I'm 48 years old female. I have been suffering from some weird kind of physical situation since two years. Whenever my body get some hit from sun or fire I get some kind of panic attacks. I lose self consciousness, I get dizziness and my heart beat get faster and I suffocate and my nerves literally stop working for 1-2 minutes. Luckily my daughters are always there with me to look after me and they get me cold water lemon temporary medicine etc. But what if I get these attacks when i'm alone! That's why it's really important for me to get rid of it as soon as possible. I'm overweight and I have blood pressure for 10 years now. I have seen a doctor and done a couple of tests and he said that it's anxiety and gave me some medicines but it's not working very well. Please please help me please.

Anxiety and Panic attacks can be effectively treated by medicines and psychotherapy both. A detailed assessment with psychiatrists is important and start medicines. In the second step you have to tale an appointment with trained and qualified psychologist. Psychotherapy sessions will help you learn anxiety management techniques and can understand the triggers for the same. The desirable change can be achieved by modifying lifestyle and also working on thinking pattern, perception and emotion regulation. Suffering is not an option. Help is just one call away!

Hiii lybrate-user thanks for asking your query causes of migrain irregularity in meals, improper metabolism, mental and physical stress, viewing of tv for long periods, reading with insufficient light, sleeplessness, etc. So try to avoid triggering factors 1) include cooked vegetables without oil in your diet 2) vegetable juices and soup, fruits and fruit juices including apple, mango. 3) highly-fruit based diet for a day or two can relieve pain. 4) grapes, lemons, cabbage juice are especially important. 5) hv rice, salad and buttermilk in your diet thanku.

Is there any best treatment specially in Homeopathy about Epilepsy suffering from the last 12 years.

BHMS, Certified in Aesthetic Skin Treatments, Certified in Applied Behaviour Analysis
Homeopath, Mumbai
Yes.Epilepsy can be treated with the Homeopathic mode of treatment. The natural Homeopathic treatment for epilepsy is very beneficial for the treatment of acute fits as well as in eliminating the tendency to have seizures. The complete case history of the patient needs to be taken to select the appropriate Homeopathic medicine. An enquiry is to be made regarding the type of seizure, aura, triggering factors, finding other causes and individual dominant symptoms in each and every case. The results of the Homeopathic treatment vary in every case depending upon the duration and type of seizure. Consult.

Allopathic sleeping pills have a lots if side effects one of them is getting addicted to it. Insomnia is a problem caused due to anxiety over thinking and lack of proper sleep schedule. Opt for ayurvedic medicines that will help you build a proper sleep schedule and also calm your mind and the results will be permanent.
