Usually our understanding is when we take flumucil, we first dissolve the tablet in a glass of water. Then drink the water and the medication would have its effect as is moves through our throat. But if a person is intubated, or on nose feeding, the medicine is administered straight via the nasal tube to [...]
This post is written from personal experience as my mom has been officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s- mid stage. Usually your geriatrician or neurologist would recommend starting the patient on medication in hope of delaying the deterioration of brain function due to Alzheimer’s. Update July 2021: There have been a lot of changes after this article [...]
In my previous articles, I’ve discussed about personality types that may result in development of Alzheimer’s or dementia. I believe that dementia or Alzheimer’s is a result of a coping mechanism that has gone seriously wrong. If you go into any Quora thread on Alzheimer’s (just go to Quora.com and search Alzheimer’s and read the [...]
In this article, I would share two more case scenarios of persons whom I personally know one with early stage of Alzheimer’s and another already with Alzheimer’s. Both shared similarity in their patterns of thinking.

With falls, the older person or elderly could experience moderate to severe pain that eventually ends up limiting the mobility. Eventually it would get too painful to move or walk and thus the person would avoid movement and walking. This would cause muscle dystrophy and stiffness. Gradually, the person would eventually require a walker, then a wheelchair and later bed bound as lack of movement would also result in other complication.

If you suspect that your forgetfulness is very unusual, it helps to do more research and equip yourself with the necessary knowledge and keep informed of the latest developments in battling the illness.
This information was shared to me from a 81 year old healthy senior. By walking barefoot on the soil, you would find your eye sight improving. The senior came to know about it because years ago, he saw a man in his 40s walking barefoot on the grass at the park. The man shared with him that despite being relatively young (in his 40s), his eyesight was failing rapidly. His doctor actually recommended this method to him as a way to treat his bad eyesight. Thinking he has nothing much to lose, the man tried the method consistently. Sure enough, his eyesight improved and did not deteriorate further.
