Dementia is Reversible, Part II: Natural Remedies
by Barbi Trejo
(NaturalNews) Natural methods can be used to avoid or improve dementia symptoms. Part I examined how diet plays a key role in improving the symptoms of dementia, but diet is only the first step in avoiding or treating dementia.
Removal of Gas Appliances:
There is some evidence to suggest that fossil fuel-powered appliances can worsen the symptoms of dementia.
According Dr. Theron Randolph, "If the patient's family is unwilling to exchange the entire fossil fuel heating system - I mean fuel pipes, heat ducts, everything, every single part must go - for an electric stove and baseboard heat, or a heat pump air exchanger, the patient will not recover."
Switching to electric heat, cooking with an electric stove and using an electric water heater can lead to improvement in dementia symptoms.
How to get mercury fillings removed without exposing yourself to toxic mercury vapor:
Supplements for Dementia:
1. Lecithin - Lecithin feeds the brain and cleans the arteries and veins.
2. DMAE and Acetyl-L-carnitine - DMAE and Acetyl-L-carnitine will increase the level of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
3. CQ10, bill berry, ginkgo biloba, grape seed - Coenzyme CQ10, bill berry, ginkgo biloba and grape seed will all improve circulation.
Note: Studies have shown that turmeric, milk thistle, olive leaf, holy basil and olive oil are beneficial for dementia patients also.
Throw out all aluminum cookware and even the tea ball. Give up using foils and even supplements covered with foil tops. Look for baking powders without aluminum, switch to plastic or glass salt shakers and buy salt without aluminum. Also, tape over all handles in the bathroom and other places with masking tape.
De-worming is one of the crucial items to be worked on and ridding the body of flukes is imperative. Here are some natural ones:
- Juicing an entire pumpkin is easy to do. Take a regular pumpkin and juice the entire pumpkin, skin, seeds and all. Drink the juice within 6 hours in 3 divided doses.
- Eat plenty of fresh unsalted pumpkin seeds. Start with a handful and workup.
- A way to get rid of dead flukes stuck in your system is to juice an entire pineapple (including the core) and drink the juice all at once.
- Place one teaspoon of nigella sativa seeds in a pan with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Heat to boiling and then cool to a warm temperature. With a pastry brush, paint on your stomach and liver area before sleeping. Do not wash off.
