Dementia Natural Remedies

Dementia is a lack of mental functioning, especially with memory. It affects language and speech, memory, perception, behaviors, personality changes, thinking, and judgment. Causes of dementia are numerous including thyroid or blood sugar problems, brain tumors, drug intoxication, chronic infections, anemia, depression, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, AIDS, Lyme disease, B-12 deficiency, medications including some cholesterol lowering drugs, and alcoholism.

Dementia starts with forgetfulness and affects tasks, problem solving, losing familiar places or objects can get lost, and with low interest in life. When it gets worse people start forgetting events, reading writing, they have poor judgment, go into social isolation, have confused speech, and have hallucinations or delusions. At the worst, as dementia progresses further, the person can’t understand language, loses family recognition, forgets to eat and bathe, has incontinence problems, and has problems swallowing.

Medications like antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, serotonin, and even stimulants (amphetamines) are prescribed. Other brain drugs that have admitted little change or help but have a large array of side effects. Prognosis by modern medicine is certain furthering of dementia, loss of lifespan and quality of life. Dementia is not thought to be preventable. From the natural perspective we look for the cause whether it is physical, nutritional, and emotional or a chemical poisoning. The cause must be dealt with; this takes someone other than yourself. Find an herbalist, homeopath or natural practitioner.
