21st September World Alzheimer's Day
World Alzheimer's Day
Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia. In 2013 a study from EURODEM found 9 249 649 Europeans suffer from dementia.
65 years is the typical age of onset, which is alarming, because the population is aging across the world. Nearly twice as many women as men have Alzheimer's. A University of California study found that Alzheimer also progresses more rapidly and severely in women.
There are promising studies in the TCM field, for treatment of Alzheimer's disease. So potentially we can do a lot for our elderly community.
Here you can find a few link's regarding studies of Alzheimer's and TCM
