This disease was initially described as presenile dementia by the Psychiatrist and German Neurologist Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915).

Alzheimer’s disease is considered to be a progressive degenerative brain disease and is characterized by the atrophy of the cerebral cortex with alterations called senile plaques, which are lesions that affect the dendrites and axons of neurons. The disease also results in a decrease in the activity of acetylcholinetransferase (protein acetylcholine precursor), which plays an important role in the synthesis of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine, which is the main neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system, also participates in the functions of memory, concentration and intellectual capacity and this is the reason why the first symptoms of the disease are characterized by slight changes in memory, subtle personality changes and a lack of concentration. So far, we have introduced this disease in an orderly and correct manner and have not presented anything new. We have not even described the reason why or for which purpose the above mentioned atrophies or decreases in activities occur.

According to Official Medicine, the etiology of this disease is unknown. When faced with such a statement one may question who exactly it is unknown to. Every time I read “of unknown etiology” in clinical pathology texts I am taken back by the arrogance of this statement. As if all knowledge of disease belonged to a single entity. Fortunately, we know that there are other types of medicine that are more focused on the patient, the person, rather than their illness. During my consultations, I am fondly reminded by many people of the times when doctors knew our names and those of our parents, looked us in the eye when we entered their offices and the first thing they would ask were questions like, “How are you? How about your family? Have you got a girlfriend?” These questions emphasized the importance of the emotional state and human relationships in living a healthy life. In fact, in most records from ancient history data shows that medicine in a variety of cultures such as India, Egypt, China and Greece treated the person and not just the body. It is precisely at the time of Hippocrates when there is a great divide in medical teaching and practice that comes along with the establishment of the schools of Kos and Knidos.

Hippocrates, creator of the school of Kos, said: “Disease does not exist, but rather people with disease.” He was not only concerned about the physical state of the patient but also the patient’s background and the influence of their emotional sphere.

The school of Knidos, however, focused more on the disease as an independent entity, a concept that continued throughout time with Galen. The school did not focus on the general state of the patient, but instead on their pathology as a motive for study and interest.

The result of this differentiation (which should have never happened) is reflected today by the following variety of practices even though the most coherent thing to do is to cooperate and work together for the wellbeing of the patient:

– Natural Medicine – Pseudoscience – Humanistic Medicine – Biological Medicine.

– Official Medicine – Conventional Medicine – Organic Medicine – Mechanical Medicine.

Let’s now discuss what biological medicine has to say about this form of dementia:

-There is no Alzheimer’s without a cause.

Let’s move on to the biological conflicts:

-We frequently encounter a conflict that affects two simultaneous cerebral relays (in the brain stem) in the area of ​​the tubules of the kidney. This is an existential conflict, of collapse, of feeling that everything has been lost, of feeling alone in the world. If the situation persists a person goes into a state of paralysis and experiences temporal space disorientation, resulting in the inability to react and the progressive generation of growing dependence.

-Another conflict associated with Alzheimer’s is the one that affects two relays in the cerebral cortex as a result of the impact of two very strong conflicts of separation that involve loss. For example, a partner dies after many years of living together (loss-separation). If a second conflict appears, without having solved the first, such as, “I am moving to a residence for elderly”, the person feels that they have lost everything that is important to them once again. Mother Nature´s reaction, through its biological program, does not wait. It reveals itself through short-term memory loss, a decrease in intellectual capacity and difficulty solving simple tasks. The biological reason for these reactions is to be able to forget the separations so that the person can stop suffering. According to Dr. Hamer, the father of the GNM (German New Medicine), healing occurs when there is awareness of the biological conflict, resulting in a solution to the problem. However, if this is not possible in the short term we can use the BRT® (Brain Release Technique) to precisely locate the HF, or Hamer focus, (visible through cranial CT), which appears on a region of the brain that controls the area in the body in which the impact of the biological conflict is recorded. The location of the HF gives us specific information about the conflict and the affected organ. The most valuable aspect of the BRT® is that it holds a treasure of extraordinary importance: In the case of pathologies in which neither the organs nor the psyche can be accessed, we will always have the ability to access brain relays through Cranial Osteopathy to facilitate movement from the active phase (sympathotonia) to the solution phase (vagotonia).

We have also been able to observe that the majority of these patients present pronounced tension in the muscles of the suboccipital (neck) and sub-clavicular (anteroinferior part of the neck) regions, causing restriction of the main blood vessels that supply blood to the head. In this intelligent manner Nature progressively deteriorates cognitive functions to situate the person in a parallel world. In an initial phase, working the cervical spine with osteopathy stops the evolution of Alzheimer’s disease. In advanced cases it can help improve short-term memory and attention span. For those who do not have the disease I recommend working at a preventive level by keeping the neck in good shape and being especially careful about not experiencing these conflict alone.

To conclude the treatment, the icing on the cake will be the stimulation of acetylcholine through HO® (Hormonal Osteopathy). As I mentioned above, it is the neurotransmitter that progressively decreases with the progression of the disease. Hormonal Osteopathy is the best tool to energize the endocrine system.
