Alzheimer's Disease is Fast Becoming One of the Top 10 Causes of Death Globally!
Alzheimer's is a neurodegenerative disease that gradually affects the memory and progressively destroys the ability to learn, reason, judge, communicate and carry out simple day-to-day activities. It is the most common form of dementia in older people and is characterized by neuropsychiatric symptoms, personality and behavioral changes, such as: anxiety, suspiciousness, agitation and even delusions and hallucinations. The cause of Alzheimer's is unknown but the affected brain cells are recognized by the appearance of unusual helical protein filaments.
FDA Approved Alzheimer’s disease Treatments
Cholinesterase inhibitors and NMDA receptor antagonists are the most popular FDA Approved Treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. Since, Alzheimer's disease (AD) cannot be addressed with over the counter drugs; you should consult a licensed Doctor for the diagnosis, treatment and "cure" of AD. We empathize completely with your disability and want to do whatever we can to help you. Homeopathy is considered to be medicine in USA but our precedent setting Resonance Homeopathies cannot be used for over the counter treatment of AD. Homeopathy is also considered medicine in Europe and the laws there regarding it are more accommodating. Ayurveda is only considered medicine in India and TCM is accepted as medicine in China. Supplements can only be used and marketed to support the normal functions of brain and nervous system and cannot be used to treat any ailment.
Why do Conventional Medicines not Cure Alzheimer’s disease?
In Alzheimer’s disease, the brain of the patient has low levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine that relays messages between the nerve cells. Western treatment modalities only focus on administering Cholinesterase inhibitors such as Aricept, Cognex, Exelon, and Razadyne that inhibit the enzyme called acetylcholinesterase from breaking down acetylcholine in the brain. As a result, there is an increased level of acetylcholine that can help increase the communication between nerve cells. On the other hand the drug called Memantine inhibits the release of the chemical glutamate, which is found in excess in AD patients. However these Allopathic treatments only afford temporary relief and do little to change the underlying disease. Besides, the use of drugs like Aricept and Cognex may cause side-effects like nausea, vomiting, insomnia, muscle cramps amongst others. Their more serious side-effects also include black, bloody, tarry stools; seizures; painful and difficult urination.
Research on Natural Supplements, Herbs and Homeopathy
There has been growing research on numerous herbs, homeopathic ingredients and supplements globally for improving Brain and Nerve Health.
We’ve compiled information on the more compelling and popular ones. Please note that these are most likely not studied by and approved as treatments or cures by the FDA and therefore cannot be labeled or sold as a AD treatment or AD cure legally. Each country’s laws on natural treatments are different. Only the FDA can determine if something should be called a treatment or not.
You are welcome to take these herbs, homeopathies and supplements for supporting your nerves and keeping your brain healthy.
Biogetica does its best to balance your right to know with the laws of the land. We strive each day to bring nature back to medicine!
Research on Herbs **
Ginkgo biloba: This herb is traditionally believed to improve blood circulation to the brain and increase memory power. Researches on Ginkgo biloba have had conflicting reports. However, a recent meta analysis study suggests that this herb may support normal concentration and cognitive functions. 1
Withania somnifera: This herb also known as Ashwagandha is believed to have a wide range of health benefits that include boosting your supply of antioxidants and regulating the immune system. Clinical investigations demonstrated that the ashwagandha extract potentially promoted cognitive functions and inhibited neurotoxins responsible for degeneration.2
Bacopa monnieri: It is also known as Brahmi. According to Ayurvedic principles, Bacopa monnieri is traditionally believed to help support the brain functions. An In Vivo study on an Alzheimer’s model showed the brahmi extract potentially improve memory and learning in lab subjects. It also appeared to decrease the breakdown of the neurotransmitter responsible to maintain communication between nerve cells. 3
Celastrus paniculatus: This herb is believed to improve the functioning of important neurotransmitters related to cognitive performance. In vivo studies suggested that Celastrus paniculatus may possess cognitive enhancing and antioxidant properties. 4
Convolvulus pluricaulis: It is commonly known as Shankhpushpi and is believed to help enhance brain power. Clinical results suggested that this herb may exert neuroprotective properties. 5
Research on Resonance Homeopathic Ingredients **
Gelsemium Sempervirens: This homeopathic remedy is believed to have a positive effect on brain cells. An In vivo examination showed the remedy exert promising cognitive enhancement and increased attentive, learning and exploratory behaviour in the test subjects. 6
Nutraceutical research **
Folic Acid: This nutritional supplement is a water-soluble B vitamin available in various natural sources. A 3 year randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study was conducted to document the effects of folic acid supplementation on 818 patients. The results suggested that folic acid supplements potentially improved cognitive functions and memory power.7
Omega-3 fatty acids: The fatty acids contained in Omega 3 are believed to be imperative for proper brain functioning. Studies suggest that Omega-3 fatty acid may show improvement in cognitive functions and keep the brain cells healthy. 8
Coenzyme Q10: This natural ingredient is believed to play some role in addressing oxidative damage. In an In vivo test , CoQ10 supplementation resulted in improved cognitive behaviour and decreased dysfunctional cells in lab subjects. The results suggest that CoQ10 may potentially help keep the brain healthy. 9

Treatment options for Alzheimer's disease
Conventional Treatment of Alzheimer's disease
Allopathic treatment for Alzheimer's includes Cholinesterase inhibitors (Aricept, Cognex, Exelon, Razadyne). These drugs work by regulating neurotransmitters (the chemicals that transmit messages between neurons) and may help maintain thinking, memory, and speaking skills, but they do little to change the underlying disease. Besides, the use of drugs like Aricept and Cognex may cause side-effects like nausea, vomiting, insomnia, muscle cramps amongst others. Their more serious side-effects also include black, bloody, tarry stools; seizures; painful and difficult urination.
Another drug called Memantine is also used in the Allopathic system of medicine. It protects the brain cells from damage caused by a chemical messenger. Memantine is sometimes used in combination with a Cholinesterase inhibitor.
Complementary Natural Care
Alzheimer's disease cannot be treated with over the counter homeopathy, Ayurveda or Supplements in most countries. No Natural products are approved by the FDA for Alzheimer's disease treatment. Natural products at best can be used for balancing and improving the structure and functions of the Brain.
Biogetica's approach institutes a unique mixture of traditional Ayurvedic herbs, advanced resonance Homeopathic Sarcodes along with Natural dietary Supplements.
The combination is believed to focus on: **
- Improving concentration and cognitive function
- Improving circulation
- Encouraging optimal structure and functions of the brain
- Regulating neurotransmitters
Create a calm environment, develop soothing rituals, and use gentle reminders.
Be sensitive to the patient's fears and frustration with expressing what is wanted.
Redirect the person's attention, rather than arguing, disagreeing, or being confrontational.
Therapeutic activities like playing music of the person's choice, one-on-one interaction, playing videotapes of family members have been known to reduce certain problematic behavior in people with Alzheimer's.
Incorporating light exercise and walking into daily routine, reduces wandering, aggression and agitation, and can also be beneficial in alleviating problematic behavior.
Regular breathing techniques and therapies like yoga or tai chi can be beneficial to maintain concentration and mental balance.
Regular visits to a Neurologist and Psychologist are a must.
Nutrients like Antioxidants, vitamin B complex, Manganese, amino acids have been used in clinical studies in order to partially treat Alzheimer's Disease or slow down its progression.
About Alzheimer's Disease
While scientists know Alzheimer's Disease involves progressive brain cell failure, they have not yet identified any single reason why cells fail.
Our healthy brain has millions of nerve cells called neurons. These neurons generate electrical and chemical signals called neurotransmitters that are relayed from one neuron to another, to help us think, remember and feel.
Initially, in people with Alzheimer's Disease, neurons in certain locations of the brain begin to die or fail to function. When these die, lower levels of neurotransmitters are produced, creating signaling problems in the brain.
Although Alzheimer's Disease has no single known cause, in the last 15 years, scientists have learned a great deal about certain risk factors that may play a role.
The greatest known risk factors for late-onset Alzheimer's are increasing age and a family history of the disease. The likelihood of developing Alzheimer's doubles about every five years after the age of 65. After the age of 85, the risk reaches nearly 50 percent.
Research has shown that those who have a family member with Alzheimer's are more likely to develop it.
Three genes have been identified to cause early onset (familial) AD. Late-onset Alzheimer's, which chiefly affects individuals over 65, is the more common form of the illness.
However a study suggests there is a strong link between serious head injury and future risk of Alzheimer's Disease
Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease
Forgetfulness or Memory loss - The most common symptom first noticed is short-term memory loss. This progresses from seemingly simple forgetfulness, to more severe short-term memory loss, and finally, to loss of memory of familiar and well-known skills, objects or persons. A person begins to forget more often and is unable to recall information later. Alzheimer's Disease may start with slight memory loss and confusion, but it eventually leads to irreversible mental impairment that destroys a person's ability to remember, reason, learn and imagine. These early symptoms of AD are often missed because they resemble natural signs of aging.
Difficulties with abstract thinking - Abstract thinking requires a lot of imagination. Alzheimer's patients have an impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information. They experience difficulty in performing complex mental tasks like recognizing and dealing with numbers, learning new things and making new memories.
Difficulties finding the right word - People with Alzheimer's Disease often find it difficult to follow conversations, forget the right words to express thoughts, or substitute unusual words, making their reading and writing hard to understand. They may substitute or make up words that sound like or mean something like the forgotten word. E.g. They may be unable to find their toothbrush, and instead ask for that thing for my mouth.
Disorientation in time, place and person - People with Alzheimer's Disease often lose their sense of time and dates. They may feel lost in their own neighborhood or very familiar surroundings, and forget where they are. They may mix up identities of people, such as thinking a son is a brother or that a wife is a stranger. They may nap frequently or awaken at night believing it is time to go to work.
Poor or decreased judgment - Solving daily problems like dressing appropriately becomes increasingly difficult and eventually impossible. Alzheimer's Disease is characterized by increasing difficulty in doing things that require planning, decision making and judgement. Patients may show poor judgement, like giving away large sums of money to shop owners. They often won't make decisions. For example, when asked what they would like to drink, they may say I'll drink whatever she is drinking.
Difficulties performing familiar tasks - Patients find it hard to plan, perform or complete once-routine tasks that require sequential steps, such as cooking, placing a telephone call or playing a game. Eventually, they may forget how to do even the most basic things.
Personality changes - People with Alzheimer's Disease may exhibit dramatic changes in mood. They may become extremely confused or fearful. They may express distrust in others or dependence on a family member. Depression often coexists with Alzheimer's Disease.
Other symptoms include misplacing things like a wristwatch in the sugar bowl, loss of initiative to do usual activities, language deterioration and mood swings.
Restlessness also is a common sign.
In severe AD, the patient doesn't recognize oneself or close family, is very difficult to understand, may refuse to eat, may choke, or forget to swallow, or can lose control over the bowel and bladder. In such cases, he / she needs total assistance for all activities of daily living.
Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease
The diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease is often delayed due to the slow progression of symptoms. Also, most diagnostic uncertainty arises from the difficulty of distinguishing Alzheimer's Disease from other related disorders. No medical tests are available to diagnose Alzheimer's Disease conclusively. The diagnosis is made primarily on the basis of a thorough study of the medical history, clinical observation and physical examination, neuropsychological tests and intellectual functioning over a series of weeks or months. Various physical tests (blood tests and brain scans like PET Scans and MRI) are performed to rule out alternative diagnoses.
Heal the Entire Being
Biogetica has a unique and comprehensive Holographic model of healing which synthesizes all the traditional natural health systems to simultaneously ease physical, mental, emotional layers of your being.
You, as a living, thinking, feeling, vibrating being, are much more than a collection of inter-related chemical processes. You are life itself. Life can never be reduced to a series of chemical reactions as chemical reactions cannot create life. Every thought, emotion, vibration or action leads to a series of chemical changes in the body. Biogetica recognizes this and balances the ENTIRE BEING, bringing mind, body and soul into harmony. Treating an ailment on molecular level alone, seldom has a lasting effect as the untreated social, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic patterns cause the ailment to manifest once again on a physical plane. Holistic healing is necessary for lasting relief. Biogetica, therefore, uses Resonance Homeopathic to harmonize the entire being; flower essences to attune the mind; Ayurvedic, Tibetan and Chinese herbs to balance the energetic and the physiological manifestation of the five elements; and nutraceuticals to coordinate cellular nutrition.
Look for Natural Solutions
Our bodies are made of and supported by nature and therefore can only be healed by nature in the long term. Chemicals are often necessary for immediate change in an acute situation but tend to do the body more harm than good in the long run. Hence, Biogetica's Doctors are dedicated to providing natural solutions that are supported by evidence and prior use. To us, the argument is fairly obvious: One would use wood to fix a desk made of wood or metal to fix a car made of metal, so why use chemicals to fix a body made of nature?
Nature has blessed the Earth with natural remedies and healing mechanisms. It would be wise not to ignore them. The intelligence of nature is much greater than that of man. Unfortunately, man still focuses on chemical medicines, as they can be patented and sold for huge profits. Allopathic attempts to treat chronic ailments by interfering directly with the chemical processes using man-made substances, has essentially been a failure. We claim to be cracking the gene code, but we still can't cure a cold with man-made substances!!! Homeopathic and Naturopathic methods are never studied and verified by governing bodies, as there is no one who will spend millions obtaining an approval on herbs, knowing that they cannot be patented and sold exclusively by them.
Appeal to the Balancing Forces Inherent in all Nature
Life cannot be recreated with chemical interactions and there is much more to life than molecular interactions. Our bodies are the most advanced pharmacies on the planet and millions of functions happen each minute with astounding precision. Biogetica therapies are designed to appeal to the balancing forces apparent in all nature by reminding and stimulating the body towards a certain function. The nutraceuticals in our kits provide specific nutrition for a function, the herbs in our kits balance the terrain of the body so that it is able to perform that function and the resonance homeopathics are designed to remind the body to be in resonance with that very function.
From Medication to Meditation
Good health and freedom involves every aspect of our being including diet, lifestyle, exercise, emotional states, thoughts and energetic patterns. Biogetica Drs have therefore designed diet, nutrition, exercise and meditation protocols specific to various life situations. We encourage you to actively partake in these for best results.
