Frequencies help Alzheimers’s

A Senior Producer at NPR forwarded this Reuter’s press release to me on a clinical trial showing stimulation of the brain by frequencies in Alzheimer’s patients was as good or better than some drugs. Surprise!

I’ve had limited experience with Alzheimer’s. However, the family of one client had me stop by and I detected a virus in the brain. Applying frequencies for this immediately popped the elderly person out of a comotose state.

There are several mechanisms that may be at at work here. They may be affecting pathogens, stimulating the elimination of toxins (particularly metals), stimulating brain cell function, or a combination of all of the above. They don’t provide the frequencies in the press release so there is not enough data to show what they were really doing.

Brain stimulation improves memory in Alzheimer’s

By Will Boggs, MD

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Electrical stimulation of the brain may improve memory and recognition in elderly people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, results of a study hint.

“Our preliminary data on Alzheimer’s disease patients are promising as we observed beneficial effects after a single session of transcranial direct current stimulation,” Dr. Alberto Priori from the University of Milan told Reuters Health, “suggesting that chronic daily application might induce even greater improvement.”

“Our studies encourage broader research programs using different stimulation protocols and longer clinical follow-up to clarify the impact this therapy might have on patients’ daily functional activities,” Priori added.

Priori and colleagues investigated whether electrical stimulation applied over an area at the side of the brain called the temporoparietal cortex could improve recognition memory in 10 patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

The treatment significantly improved word recognition memory accuracy, they found report, whereas sham treatment had no impact on memory. The results were similar after correcting memory performance for guessing, the report indicates.

“Interestingly,” the investigators say, the electrical stimulation-induced improvement in the word recognition test in patients with Alzheimer’s disease is comparable to the 16 percent improvement induced by long-term treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors – drugs currently used to treat early memory problems in patients with dementia.

“We are assessing possible long-lasting effects of (electrical stimulation) in Alzheimer’s disease patients using repeated session protocols in a larger sample with longer clinical follow-up,” Priori said.

“We believe that the best results, especially in Alzheimer’s disease patients, could be obtained by combining transcranial direct current stimulation with cognitive rehabilitation,” Priori added.
