Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Alzheimer's and Dementia

Alzheimer's is a progressive brain disorder affecting areas of the brain that control behavior, memory, and cognitive thinking skills. Alzheimer's symptoms include loss of memory, difficulty performing familiar tasks, problems with language, disorientation to time and place, poor or declining judgment, difficulty with abstract thinking, and changes in personality. As the nervous system deteriorates there may be involuntary muscle reflexes.

Some toxic metals like aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel are taken into our bodies through the air, food, and water. The toxic effects of these metals can remain in our bodies for years, and have been linked to Alzheimer's disease, aluminum toxicity, and mercury poisoning. As little as 4 parts per million of aluminum in human blood can cause it to coagulate. This slows down or completely shuts off the flow of blood in smaller vessels. Brain cells will die without blood flow and oxygen.
