Alzheimer’s and Natural Treatment : Aromatherapy

You would like to know if it is possible to provide the patient the same therapeutic benefits that some of these drugs using a natural treatment or alternative therapy.

Aromatherapy is a gentle medicine that offers useful services for people with Alzheimer’s disease. Let us see how.

Various studies have reported the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy in the case of states of agitation in people with advanced Alzheimer’s disease without causing adverse side effects.

Aromatherapy produces its medicinal effects when the active components in the essential oils enter the body, either through the olfactory system or through the lungs.

Therefore, the molecules having therapeutic effects reach the brain via the bloodstream where they affect it directly.

Alzheimer and Essential Oils

True lavender (Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis) and Citronella (Melissa officinalis) are two essential oils recommended to soothe patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

One study (a randomized crossover) conducted in Hong Kong in 2007 of 70 Chinese seniors with dementia (Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia ) over three weeks showed that inhaling lavender essential oil significantly improves states of agitation and neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Substances called terpines present in these essential oils have cholinergic effects similar to those of pharmaceutical specialties such as Aricept ® (donepezil), Reminyl ® (Galantamine) and Exelon ® (Rivastigmine ).

Essential Oils : Lavender and Lemongrass

Aromatherapy or alternative medicine with essential oils is a related alternative therapy that you can try in order to calm the agitated patient.

Warning ! Essential oils are highly concentrated and are at risk of poisoning due to improper use.
