My original web-page has been this:
Thoughts concerning Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and DementiaAlzheimer's is the steady dying of the brain. If one stiffens from stimulating the brain, the brain usually decrease the activity. The person gets so used to own thought-routines or thought-patterns that the brain slowly decreases in the overall activity. When the brain reaches a certain level there is usually a too strong brain or thought behaviour in order too correct ones own behaviour. I think it symbols the early sunset of a person's life. Compared to the healthy life of a normal person, the death of a normal person is in the form of going to sleep and never wake up again. This is the normal sunset of a life. One grows old and dies from old age. If you keep a high, positive brain activity and seek new solutions and refresh the way of looking at things, you will be free from Alzheimer's
Parkinson's is a little more complex. I think it goes like this: If one cares to look after, I think there is needed a too strong a stimulation from bodily neurology that has made the body cease to work properly. Almost like becoming less of feelings, the stimuli from working properly has set into a subliminal process of becoming higher and higher and therefore the disease feels like a strait-jacket. If I was in position, I would introspect for lack of discipline with regards to sensitivity or of a deeper negativity, like one seeking a higher or unacceptably higher bodily stimulation. One can also look for the combination of these. Thoughts were that it could be possible to reveal this by a set questionnaires early on but I haven't got the access to data nor the possibly of establishing a test bench practice of this sort. If one watches it with regards to good physical exercise and keeps a healthy, positive attitude, I don't think Parkinson's will ever become a problem. There's no doubt that personality plays a role in determining the relationship to both yourself and your body. If you want to do it all away, just get yourself into a car-crash and then you know where you've taken yourself, into the very car-crash!
Here are some facts and reference for Parkinson's Disease:
Affects about 120,000 people in the UK
Most people who get Parkinson's are aged 50 or over
A loss of nerve cells in the brain causes the symptoms of Parkinson's to appear
From a BBC information page.
Dementia is classified along with Alzheimer's, I've seen recently. I think this is a good step. Dementia is, along these former lines, the beginning of the descent to death, the onset of a dying brain. Discipline on one's mindset, possibly being also one's morality, and mindful activities should take away the possibility for Dementia to occur. Yet, it's my sense that there are incentives in the patient for Dementia to occur in the first place so perhaps Dementia is a matter of personality traits and as such, is difficult to handle. I'm wondering a little bit if Dementia can occur as a result of inactivity by deep resentment. If you have the idea that the society or whatever your environment is, isn't worth your efforts, inactivity is an option, but I think it's a poorer choice than suicide, even though seeking unhealthy living style in combination with decadence/inactivity may be a possibility to this end. Be healthy!
