Description of disease
Dementia is caused by the accumulation of special proteins in the brain called amyloid β and tau. For various reasons, these break down and decrease nerve cells in the brain, eventually making normal life impossible. Dementia is mainly classified into three types, with Alzheimer's disease (commonly known as Alzheimer's) having the largest number of patients. Typical symptoms include short-term memory loss, such as forgetting what you've just done, or being unable to recall the names of people or items that you previously remembered. The progression of Alzheimer's disease is relatively slow, and in most cases, this gradually worsens over a number of years, and often the causative substance has already accumulated in the brain by the time symptoms become apparent.
Therapy and administration
SHED-CM therapy (nasal drops)
·SHED-CM is delivered to the cranial nerves via nasal drops. This therapy method is expected to regenerate nerve cells in the brain that have been destroyed or killed by amyloid β and tau, leading to an improvement in symptoms*.
Nasal drops are administered by a doctor at the first visit , and then you are prescribed a month's supply of these. With these, you can administer the therapy every day by yourself.
