By the terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the Alzheimer’s disease may occur because of: spleen or liver Qi deficiency with phlegm, spleen and kidney yang deficiency, Qi and blood stagnations and others. With the use of Ginkgo biloba the stagnated energy, the excretion of the mucus and blocked blood can be mobilized and the blood circulation can be promoted to the brain. This study includes 5 patients, 4 women and 1 man, aged from 55 to 78. All patients have the disease for more than 2 years and main symptom in all is dementia.
