Dementia

A site called Philosopher’s Stone has a post on dementia. The article is entitled dementia can be cured naturally. My mother suffers from dementia, from Alzheimer’s Disease; mainstream medicine says it is incurable and progressive. Nothing is tried besides drugs that are supposed to slow the progress. The websites has some recommendations that seem sensible:

(a) Dietary changes are highlighted by the phrase “get rid of the bad stuff”. This means no fried foods and no oils (no olive oil, no margarine, no mayonnaise), no processed meats containing nitrates or nitrites, no canned meats packed in oil. Canned meats packed in mustard, tomato sauce or water are acceptable.
 
(b) Adopt a gluten free diet. No wheat, barley, rye or oats. All neurological conditions must be treated with a gluten free diet. Nutrients cannot be absorbed properly if the patient is gluten intolerant.
 
(c) Six to ten (or more) eggs a day depending on the weight of the patient. Eggs help to replace the myelin in the brain. To prevent dementia Dr. Wallach recommends that you eat two eggs a day, soft boiled, poached or soft scrambled in butter, but not fried.
 
(d) Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day. Get off of carbonated drinks. Do not drink liquids 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after a meal.
 
(e) Salt your food to taste.
 
(f) Reduce or eliminate sugar from the diet
 
(g) Supplement with the 90 essential nutrients from Youngevity.
 
(h) Supplement with at least 2,000 international units of Vitamin E and 500 mcg of Selenium.

My mother would not follow this regime if I suggested it. She might if the doctors said it was necessary. But,as I said, mainstream medicine thinks nothing would help. It’s not even acknowledged that the Simvastatin medicine they give her for cholesterol might be harming her.
