A lecture by Professor Jens Pahnke on naturopathic approaches for the treatment of dementia.
- How and when did the well-known and renowned Alzheimer's researcher start his scientific studies?
- What has been studied?
- What results and findings could be obtained from the various studies on diverse plant substances and medicinal plants?
- In which areas is there hope for improvement for those affected?
A very interesting and descriptive lecture in simple language so that someone can understand Alzheimer's dementia and evaluate therapeutic approaches.
