From last 5 months my beloved cousin sister is suffering with Alzheimer's. She is now 35 and unable to remember anything for even 10 minutes. Most of the times now she gets angry and also confused while working. As per doctor’s prescribed medicines we’re giving her medicines without any fail but really not getting any improvement. On the contrary she looks like she has lost all the controls on herself. One of my friends asked me to try Curcumin Extract capsules which are made from turmeric.  Please help and guide me what to do.


Thanks in advance!!

Dear Jenney,

I am deeply grieved about your situation. Same problem I have faced with my uncle. We have consulted to doctors and fed him medicines according to doctor prescription without any failer but all in vain. We were moving through a tough time. We have lost our hope, Thank god! One of my friends suggested me to use Curcumin and now my uncle is comparatively better. I think you should discuss with your doctor regarding this medicine.


 Please don’t loose hope.

Dear Jenney,

Accurate diagnosis is critical.  I hope your cousin sister has been to the physicians.

Early-onset Alzheimer's is a rare form of dementia that strikes people younger than age 65. acording  Glenn E. Smith, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.
Early-onset Alzheimer's has been known to develop between ages 30 and 40, but that's exceedingly rare. It is more common to see someone in their 50s who has the disease. The risk increases with age.

The key treatments in Alzheimer's are education and support. This is especially true given the special social challenges of early-onset Alzheimer's. Getting connected to services such as support groups can help you identify resources, gain a deeper understanding and learn ways to adapt to the situation. I am praying for you and your cousin sister.

Take care and keep us posted.
