Q: My father has just started showing signs of Alzheimer’s. What do you suggest?
A: Alzheimer’s, as well as other forms of dementia, can be very difficult to navigate with a loved one.  What often happens when someone we love goes through this process is that we recognize that their reality becomes different from our own, and we perceive this disparity as a problem.  Often, though, they’re not really upset unless the people around them impose their sense of conflict onto the situation.  Tension ensues.  While I imagine your question was about helping you to find ways to reverse the disease, I encourage you to spend some time observing your father’s behavior and determining whether or not he really is suffering as a result of the onset of Alzheimer’s.  If he isn’t, then it might be ideal for you to allow him to manage his way through this transition in peace.  However, if you find that this situation must be resolved in some way, you can encourage him to practice breathing exercises that require him to concentrate on his breath.  This may help him to keep his brain functioning at an optimal level and therefore slow the progress of his condition.
