Stops Memory Loss in its Tracks and Reverses Dementia

Doctors in Britain have found a cure for Alzheimers that can stop the spread of Dementia and partially reverse it. The technology is actually pretty simple. The doctors discovered the break through when pointing infra-red light on mice in a maze cage each day for a few minutes. This few miutes of time under the low level infra-red light improved the mices perfomance in the maze cage. The experiment done was a controlled scientific experiment with verifiable results.

Alzheimers Helmet

The new experiment will now be with people. The helmet is safe and does not require then use of drugs. What the  infra-red light will do is assist in telling old cells to go ahead and try to repair yourselves. Old people generally see there cells grow old and die and with it their memory. This new technology helps to encourage cells that are not in the business any longer of regenerating to go ahead and start regrowing new cells again.

The plight of people with Alzheimers and Dimentia related diseases could quickly become an easy curable and preventable ailment and will bring youth back to many lives. The potential is there to see elderly people leaving in droves from Assisted Living facilities and nursing homes throughout the world. Of course, this technology is just beginning to be tested with humans but the testing results so far show a remarkable likelyhood that this new device will indeed cure the elderly disease.
