Alzheimers Disease

Translating whole-body cryotherapy into geriatric psychiatry – A proposed strategy for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease

Whole Body Cryotherapy Treats +
Prevents Alzheimers

What it is: Alzheimer’s disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells
causes memory loss and cognitive decline. A neurodegenerative type of dementia, the
disease starts mild and gets progressively worse.
In Alzheimer’s, there are microscopic ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ between and within brain
cells. Plaques form from the build-up of a protein called beta-amyloid; tangles form from
an abnormal disintegration of the protein tau. Age, genetics and/or inflammation may
cause the protein build-up and abnormalities. As neurons age, they are less able to
transport and dispose of proteins causing the build-up. Inflammation increases the
production of amyloid-beta and stresses neurons—which limits their ability to clear out
abnormal proteins.

How Cryotherapy can help treat and prevent the onset of
Alzheimers Disease:

Cryotherapy offers a treatment protocol for clients looking to minimize their risk for
developing Alzheimers–either due to family history, presence of the Alzheimer’s gene
(the apolipoprotein E or APOE gene) or other risk factors such as chronic viral infection,
head injury or vascular disease.

1. Chronic inflammation is implicated as a major cause of protein build-up in
the brain. Anti-inflammatory cytokines are released during WBC and cross
the blood-brain barrier—reducing chronic inflammation in the brain.
Additionally, pro-inflammatory cytokines are reduced.

2. Whole body cryotherapy creates a biological, brief, episodic stressor that
causes the body, including the brain, to upregulate it’s functions. Thus WBC
can reduce or reverse mental and physical aging. This has major implications
for the build-up of beta-amyloid and tau proteins as the transport and
disposal of them can be more normally maintained.

3. WBC improves vascular health and performance through the
vasoconstriction/vasodilation sequence. Improved vascular health reduces
the risk for Alzheimer’s.

4. WBC lowers the inflammation related to head injuries/concussions reducing
the likelihood of chronic inflammation and subsequent protein build-up.

5. WBC improves sleep patterns.
