Alzheimer's Disease: CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • A study of Alzheimer's patients indicated that music therapy enhanced memory of past events and improved mood.

  • Human clinical studies of the antioxidant enzyme SOD are still at a very early stage, but some researchers claim it slows the aging process and has potential in treating Alzheimer's disease. SOD supplements are sold commercially in oral form, but consumers should be aware that oral SOD products are completely destroyed in the gut.

  • Claims for the steroid hormone DHEA include alleviating Alzheimer's disease.

  • Ginkgo biloba has been promoted for some time as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease, and recent studies indicate that it does have potential benefit in slowing progression of the disease. There is a reported cross-allergy with poison ivy.

  • Evidence has been discovered of a specific mutated gene, a beta-amyloid precursor, that induces Alzheimer's disease in laboratory animals and offers new insights into a potential intervention for this dreaded and increasingly common disease.
