Melatonin for Alzheimer’s

never give up hope, if you do you will be dead already

Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive loss of cognitive abilities, speech and language, problem solving skills, and memory.  It also makes it very difficult for sufferers to care for themselves, relate to others, and know what’s real and what isn’t.  Those with Alzheimer’s can become aggressive, paranoid, suspicious, demanding, depressed, anxious, and confused.  As yet nobody understands the exact biochemistry of Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s is the cleverest thief, because she not only steals from you, but she steals the very thing you need to remember what’s been stolen.  ~  Jarod Kintz

About 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, about 1 in 3 seniors will die from this disease, (or some other form of dementia), which is more than die from breast and prostate cancers combined.  And, doctors will tell you that there is no effective treatment for this devastating disease.

However, clinical studies have shown that long term dosages of Melatonin, 5 to 15 mg per night over two years, significantly improve the quality of sleep for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease, and ameliorate the effects of this horrible affliction.

Tamara Horner MHNE, ROHP / RNCP of Purple Almond Wellness discusses the effects and benefits of melatonin on Alzheimer’s disease in a couple of very detailed blog posts.

Melatonin is a naturally produced neurotransmitter that mostly comes from our Pineal Gland, it’s principal function is to regulate the circadian cycles, (day / night rhythm), within our brain and bodies, and as you would expect it’s closely linked to serotonin.

It seems that melatonin is a bit of a wonder hormone ~ some of it’s benefits are;

  • It’s an anti-inflammatory agent, and it inhibits the secretion of amayloid plaque.
  • Melatonin decreases excessive insulin secretion.  Too much insulin will mess with your body and brain, and then kill you.
  • Melatonin improves your overall hormone balance, it’s the regulator of every other hormone you produce and ingest.
  • Toxins and oxidation are reduced in your body because melatonin scavenges the deadly free-radicals and protects your liver.

Melatonin deficiency causes; sleep disturbance, heart disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes, strokes, schizophrenia, Parkinskon’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

You can buy synthetic melatonin over the counter at pharmacies, but it is also to be found naturally in;

  • Fruits and vegetables.  (avocado, cherries, asparagus, tomatoes, pomegranate, olives, grapes, broccoli, cucumber, and especially banana.)
  • Grains.  (rice, barley, rolled oats ~ but stay firmly away from anything containing wheat.)
  • Nuts and Seeds.  (walnuts, sunflower seeds, mustard seeds, almonds, pistachio, peanuts ~ but peanuts are not good for most people for other reasons.)
  • Poultry, (turkey, chicken, duck.)  Seafood, (cod, haddock, shrimp, salmon, tuna, sardines.)

Some say that exercise is the best sleep aid.  And that a racing mind makes a bad pillow.  All I know is that I’m going to go on taking my daily melatonin and following a Paleo diet.
