Explore Natural Treatments for Alzheimer’s in Marysville

Alzheimer's

The prevalence of Alzheimer’s in Marysville and throughout the country is alarming. As there is no cure for this degenerative brain disorder, the mortality rate is high. Those diagnosed with the disease suffer memory loss, behavioral problems and diminished mental capability. Treatments to favorably impact the life of one with Alzheimer’s are varied and range from medication to alternative methods of care. Knowing the most appropriate way to respond in this situation can be difficult.

A consultation with a naturopathic physician about options for your loved one will give you guidance on the best way to proceed for your own unique situation. Non-conventional treatments will be comprised of several different adjustments in diet and therapies.

A specially prescribed diet program may be recommended and might include such supplements as coconut oil for better memory, omega-3 fatty acids to reduce cognitive impairment, CoQ10 for healthy body functions and even coral calcium.

Other methods of treatment that can be prescribed are acupuncture to improve mood and elevate mental functions; aromatherapy with oils like lavender, lemon, orange and rosemary to improve thinking skills; bright light therapy to balance the sleep-wake cycle that is often disrupted with Alzheimer’s and herbal medicine with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Call McQuinn Naturopathic to speak to a holistic physician about your concerns regarding Alzheimer’s in Marysville. We would be happy to schedule a private consultation when you call us at (425)905-2487 and share an abundance of information about this confusing and overwhelming disease and natural ways to treat your loved one in this debilitating condition.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Learn More About Magnesium Deficiency from a Naturopathic Pediatric Physician in Everett

naturopathic pediatric physician in EverettMagnesium plays an important part in children’s health, as it aids in regulating blood pressure, nerves, heart and blood sugar and helps to produce energy needed throughout each day. It also helps in maintaining a strong immune system. However, many individuals in the United States are magnesium deficient – from 2-15% of the population. Since kids rarely eat enough vegetables and often eat too much processed foods and excessive sugar, it follows that their intake of magnesium is deficient. Consulting a naturopathic pediatric physician in Everett will provide you with valuable information about this deficiency and how you can reverse it through lifestyle and dietary adjustments.

Common symptoms of this malady are many, and include: confusion, headaches, fatigue, disruption in heart rhythms, anxiety, agitation, muscle problems, loss of appetite, sleep difficulties, irritability, digestive issues, restless leg syndrome and lack of nail growth.

Recommendations for an adequate amount of magnesium vary according to a child’s age and overall health and should be discussed with your doctor. Dietary modifications are often all that is necessary to increase magnesium levels. The best natural sources of magnesium are grains, nuts, beans and seeds of all types. There are numerous ways to incorporate magnesium-rich foods into a picky eater’s diet without sacrificing taste, as well.

Individualized diagnosis and treatment by a medical professional is the most appropriate solution for any health condition or concern. Schedule an appointment for your child with an experienced naturopathic pediatric physician in Everett by calling McQuinn Naturopathic at (425)905-2487. We will be happy to address any questions you may have.
