When it comes to Alzheimer/dementia, do not depend solely on your physician, neurologist or gerontologist. Do research by reading and looking at a variety of helpful therapies. With just a little effort on your part, it is easy to surpass the knowledge of these professionals and what is best for your loved one.

Here are 4 suggested readings:

All drugs and supplements may have side effects. It is important to let the lead physician know about intake and changes in a health regimen. Look for side effects and how common they may be. Also double check on the recommended dose and how often can it be reduced or increased for ultimate benefits. Blood profiles are very helpful to track progress or possible health problems.
