|A Clear View of Alzheimer's Disease
People experience various types of problems with mental functioning,
including the problem called Alzheimer's disease.
What these problems have in common is that they arise when factors in a
person's life come together to create the situation.
Another thing they all have in common is that they can all be solved by
changing ideas and ways.
In other words, maintaining mental health is a matter of choosing to live in
ways that create a mentally healthy situation.
The fact that there are physical components of Alzheimer's disease often
confuses people into believing that somehow the condition develops as the
result of some biological process over which the person experiencing the
condition has no control.
The truth is is that Alzheimer's disease develops as the direct result of a
person's making certain choices, and that if the person makes different
choices, the person can change the situation and become healthier.
|Genes and Alzheimer's Disease
There is an untrue story out about Alzheimer's disease.
According to this story, genes cause the problem.
While genes can be involved in the creation of Alzheimer's disease, this
gene determined view of this problem is largely incorrect.
The truth is that factors, including gene activation, that underly the
development of Alzheimer's disease are based on choices people make. So
really, simply put, whether or not a person develops the condtion is
determined by choices made by that person and by people that person is
For instance, stress can affect biological processes. So making life choices
that create stress can contribute to a person's experiencing Alzheimer's
|The Alzheimer's Disease Creation Process
This is the general nature of how the condition called Alzheimer's disease is
The basic idea is that a person who develops Alzheimer's disease does so
because the person repeatedly makes certain choices that create the
condition. The person is generally not aware that these choices create this
condition. Some of the choices are made consciously. Some of the choices
are made unconsciously.
Many of the choices that create Alzheimer's disease are life strategy
choices that a person makes in response to stress or trauma. When the
person begins to experience Alzheimer's disease symptoms, this can stress
and traumatize the person further. The person can then react to this further
stress by continuing to use the strategies that created the problem. Thus a
cycle of stress and reaction can create the progression of the condition.
Generally a group of factors and strategies come together to create
Alzheimer's disease. These factors can include various lifestyle factors.
Possibly most important for creation of Alzheimer's disease are the following
two strategies, reacting to issues in intensely negative ways and reacting to
trauma by blocking out memories. When a person uses these two
strategies, the combined effects leave the person increasingly unhealthy
and unable to remember.
It even gets to the point where the person reacts to the disease situation by
becoming violently negative and attempting to forget it. A person who even
tries to block out the fact that he or she is blocking things out ends up
blocking out pretty much everything.
A good example of a person who was in the habit of creating safety by
conveniently forgetting is Ronald Reagan. When at a difficult point in his
presidency, he was on the spot and being asked why statements he made
had not matched facts, his response was that he had forgotten. This gave
him some temporary relief at that moment. The thing is that in repeatedly
using a forgetting strategy, Reagan eventually got himself to a state of utter
|Solving Alzheimer's Disease
Given that the development of Alzheimer's disease is largely the result of a
person's using negative and blocking reaction strategies, key to solving the
problem is the person's learning to adjust the strategies the person is using
to make them into more healing strategies.
Basically the person needs to learn to resolve and heal rather than attack
and block out.
There will also be other contributing factors that vary from case to case.
When the factors and patterns that are creating the condition are adjusted,
a person experiencing Alzheimer's will create health instead of progressive
