"The silent epidemic" is regarded by many as the disease of the 90's. The silent epidemic is a term which refers to neurodegenerative disorders-Alzheimer's, stroke and Parkinson's disease, which plague the majority of the geriatric population but are poorly recognized by the society due to the low public visibility and social isolation of these elderly patients.
The fundamental principle in Western medicine regarding neurodegenerative disorders is the nerve cells can not regenerate once they die. Alzheimer's , Stroke and Parkinson's disease each involves the death and atrophy of neurons (nerve cells) in the brain. therefore , there is no cure available in Western medicine for neurodegenerative disorder at the present time. All available treatment options focus on symptomatic treatment only.
Though the causes may differ, patients with neurodegenerative disorders are likely to show localized to generalized atrophy of the brain cells leading to compromise in both mental and physical functions. Mentally, the patients will exhibit forgetfulness, poor memory, decrease in mental capacity, emotional disturbance, poor speech, etc. Physically, the patients will exhibit partial to complete incontinence, aspiration of food particles, tremor, poor balance, muscle rigidity, muscle paralysis, etc. These decrease in mental and physical functions dramatically reduce the quality of life for the patients and increase the burden on the family and care-takers.
Neurodegenerative disorders are complex and pernicious disease which onset is insidious and followed by progressive deterioration. Their clinical manifestations are determined by the location and the seriousness of the neurodegenerative disorder. Their pathogenesis is a mixture of deficiency and excess conditions represented by the deficiency of kidney essence or the blocking of the brain channels by blood stasis (an excess condition) or both.
The cause of neurodegenerative disorders lies not so much in the brain (though it is the brain that shows the symptoms) as in the kidney, which, according to the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine controls the bone and generates the arrow. From the point of view of disease differentiation through the viscera and their interrelations, the root of the kidney and the bone marrow, while the blood stasis and phlegm accumulation are considered symptoms, not the causes. Therefore, the key the treating neurodegenerative disorders are to tonify the kidney, eliminate the phlegm, remove and blood stasis and induce resuscitation.
