Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease affects the brain’s tissues and gradually destroys an individual’s ability to reason, remember, imagine and learn. It is marked by abnormal plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of brain cells.

Though the exact causes for Alzheimer’s are yet to be understood, researchers have been able to make some progress in this direction. For more information, join the Alzheimer’s support group today!

Alcohol effects on Dementia

My Mother has been diagnosed with early symptoms of dementia. She's always been a bit forgetful as well as clumsy. She's been dropping dishes and glasses her hole life. Lately she has taken to drinking alcohol. She's now 77 years old. She is diabetic and she has had quadruple bypass surgery over 10 years ago. She goes to bars (she can walk there) and men buy her drinks. Yesterday she fell in the bathroom at this bar. She walked home and laid down...then called an ambulance and went to the hospital. Luckily no broken bones. I have tried to ask her not to drink alcohol. Alcohol kills brain cells and seeing where she is suffering from dementia already, this can only make the disease progress faster and more completely.
I'd like to get some information to print out and show her how her drinking is bad for her. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a very simple remedy. Go to the site prakrutiyoga.com, read its contents and start learning the nature based meditation techiniques in one of the free training centres in India and USA. Once you get definite beneficial results in your own personal and physical well being, you can try initiating her in meditation first in your own residence and then after some time in one of the training centres. In just two to three months of meditation practice, she would be able to quit drinking. drinks would leave her without her knowing. In other words, she can continue to drink and meditate. But her habit will slowly subside and will get away from her. She will dislike compulsive drinking in 3 months time.
