How CranioSacral Therapy Helps with Prevention and Reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease
posted 09.17.2018

By Michael Morgan

There has been an ongoing debate about the causes and prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease for decades. We know there is currently no known cure for Alzheimer’s, despite billions of dollars being spent to find a solution.

In the upcoming Sept. 27 webinar, How CranioSacral Therapy Helps with Prevention and Reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease, we discuss what many are calling the "missing piece" in treatment-a manual therapy technique. This technique, called CranioSacral Therapy or CST is complimentary to other alternative treatments such as functional medicine, changes in diet and exercise.

Here’s a brief background to our approach: as we looked into the history of our patients, often for decades they have had a prior diagnosis of one or more of what we call "the diseases of aging" –diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular insufficiency and immune system challenges. Many of these diseases have an inflammatory component, and over time at least some of these issues can overflow into the brain. This in term can cause cognitive problems, changes in behavior, and overall quality of life.

One observation we have made, as we continue to establish CST has an evidence based modality that addresses the prevention and treatment of AD, is that the prior history of the body must be taken into account. By addressing the prior history of body intrusions, we hope to ‘roll back’ the symptoms of this disease.

For more about our unique approach to the treatment of Alzheimer’s join us on Sept. 27 to find out more about CranioSacral Therapy and our model for treating this disease.

Michael Morgan LMT, CST-D, is an Instructor for The Upledger Institute International and has for the past 20 years taught this technique to healthcare professionals across the world. He has pioneered and coordinated research and developed protocols for the application of CranioSacral Therapy to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
