According to Dr. Shreepad Khedekar, B.H.M.S., M.D (Hom), homeopathic medicine could offer treatment for Alzheimer’s disease that allopathic medicine simply cannot.
The internationally-acclaimed physician has worked with many Alzheimer’s patients over the years, using homeopathic remedies to aid in the treatment of the disease’s behavioural and memory-based symptoms. He has found this method to be far superior to allopathy.
“Considering that it only has palliative drugs like Tacrine, Rivastigmine, Galantamine, Donepezil and Memantine, which work as Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, allopathy only has marginal benefits with many side effects,” he says. “If diagnosed early, homeopathic remedies can help in significantly arresting or even possibly reversing the disease.”
Dr. Khedekar lists the following as potential homeopathic treatments for Alzheimer’s:
1. Gelsemium – This flowering, yellow plant contains toxic alkaloids, which may cause paralysis of the motor nerves at high doses, but is used to treat anxiety homeopathically.
2. Nux Vomica – Also known as the strychnine tree, this plant is known to aid homeopathically with mental strain and irritability.
3. Mercurius – Mercury has been used for centuries in Medicine. In homeopathy, it is known to aid with memory loss and other psychological symptoms.
4. Alumina – In homeopathy, aluminum oxide has been used to treat mental confusion, a key symptom of Alzheimer’s patients.
If your clients are suffering from Alzheimer’s, consider these homeopathic remedies as treatment. For more information about homeopathy and how it relates to Alzheimer’s, visit Dr. Khedekar’s website at imperialclinics.com.
