Could I have success with alternative treatments for alzhiemers?

Could I have success with alternative treatments for alzhiemers?

Possibly: AD is an incurable degenerative disease of the brain. There have been some studies using medium chain triglycerides to 'feed' the brain (Axona). Recently a study supported the use of hi dose Vit E. Other supplements include Vinpocetine and phosphatidyl serine. Be careful even with supplements and 'natural' products- they maybe unsafe or have interactions with other products or medications.

What are alternative treatments for paralysis?

What are alternative treatments for paralysis?

Depends on cause: With paralysis from a stroke or from a spinal cord injury, the mainstays of treatment start with physical and occupational therapy. The goal is to retrain the muscles and decrease disuse atrophy and spasticity (stiffness). There is a lot of research being done on stem cell transplants and electrocortical activation of prosthetics. We anxiously await their progress.

Are there any alternative treatments for rabies?

Are there any alternative treatments for rabies?

No: Since there's very little standard treatment for rabies once the disease has begun, it's hard to talk about "alternative treatments." someone with rabies should be hospitalized. There have been a few cases of survival with an induced coma. The most important way to deal with rabies is to give human rabies immunoglobulin (hrig) and Rabies Vaccine after exposure, before the onset of disease.

Yes, 3: There are 3 proven strategies for treating allergies. 1) avoidance works, although only a few allergens are easy to avoid. 2) medications.

Are there effective alternative treatments for back pain?

Are there effective alternative treatments for back pain?

Yes: Surgery is usually the last resort for most back problems except major trauma. Therapy, postural exercises, yoga, weight loss and/or exercise, gait training, job retraining, as well as meditatation (to relieve stress) are helpful adjucts. Note: not all back pain is created equal to please get check by a specialist. Note: beware of fad or gimmicky advertisements for back relief. Feel better.

Can any of the alternative treatments for schizophrenia work?

Can any of the alternative treatments for schizophrenia work?

Alternative tx?: I don't know what you mean by "alternative treatments for schizophrenia". It you can tell me what they are - I will try to comment on each. Schizophrenia requires life-long treatment with use of atypical antipsychotics as the mainstay. Conventional neuroleptics are an option. Psychosocial treatments that go hand in hand with meds include: family therapy, social skills training & voc rehab.

Are there any alternative treatments for ALS that appear promising?

Are there any alternative treatments for ALS that appear promising?

NO: Sorry, but there are absolutely no alternative treatments that have ever made even trivial benefits to pts with als, and there seems to be no future alternative rx that seems to make any sense. The medicine approach involves mainly riluzole, and palliation, with some consideration for using glutamate blockers. These approaches are not cures, but can possibly slow somewhat.

What are some alternative treatments for melanoma?

What are some alternative treatments for melanoma?

Adjuncts only: If you ignore surgery for melanoma, you will pay for your mistake with your life. If you are interested in vitamins, botanicals and so forth, remember these are only adjuncts. I am not sure I would accept some of therapies for advanced disease that give only a small survival advantage, but I would not pay a conspiracy or natural-medicine talker for telling me untruths. Be savvy.
