Alzheimer's is devastating for 50 million people worldwide who suffer from the disease. But besides the patients, it can be even tougher for care givers and loved ones. It's incredibly terrible to watch family members slowly succumb to this debilitating disease.
That's why I was so excited to learn of this new Alzheimer's disease treat breakthrough. Researchers in Australia may have found a dramatic new way to treat Alzheimer's patients to fully restore memory functions. It's already proven to 75% effective in animal trials, and it has nothing to do with invasive surgery or risky procedures.
For those of you that don't know, Alzheimer's disease isn't just a person becoming forgetful. It's a neurodegenerative disease that gradually strips the brain of functioning tissue and nerves, causing memory loss, dementia, mood swings, organ failure and eventually death.
People diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease are generally given between three and nine years to live, and there's currently no known cure. But a group of Australian researchers is working hard to change that.
