I really thought this scholarly journal was interesting because it doesn’t involve medicine, but it look sat Alzheimer’s and treatments very differently, as it tackles the idea of music therapy as a form of treatment.

This first scholarly article on Alternative Medicine and Alzheimer’s disease was chosen because it further analyzes the different herbal options and goes through explaining very well what they are, and what they do to the body and how they specifically help to treat the disease.

I chose to share this webpage because it goes the other route from the former link and provides some tips on alternative treatments that do NOT involve medications/ herbal supplements.

I chose to share this off site link because it goes into some herbal and other forms of natural treatments for Alzheimer’s that might not be well known, it also talks a little about the safety of each treatment option- which is valuable information when diving into alternative treatments.

I chose to share this video because it goes over some topics that were disused in class about new/alternative methods for treating Alzheimer’s with a different approach- which is the preemptive strike of PREVENTION. This video lists some key food groups that will help support health brain functions as we age.

I chose to share this image because it illustrates how Alzheimer’s affects people in many different areas of their thinking and how they interact with themselves and other people.
