Dietary changes should occur and should include an initial detoxification of all heavy metals and pesticides.

Vitamins, minerals, and orthomolecular amino acid therapy can enhance mental function, improve memory, and increase motor coordination for many patients. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be used to improve energy, concentration, and memory.
Alzheimer's patients should avoid stress, stay hydrated, eat regular meals, and have an organized routine. It is very important to remember that these patients are easily upset and very fearful at times. Keep these patients busy with mental activities like learning a second language or playing bridge. Dominos, chess, or puzzles will also improve brain function.
