What is Dementia?
“Dementia is an umbrella term for a group of cognitive disorders typically characterized by memory impairment, as well as marked difficulty in the domains of language, motor activity, object recognition, and disturbance of executive function – the ability to plan, organize, and abstract.”
Most doctors claim that dementia is a normal part of aging and there isn’t much you can do about it, however if you’ve seen my video on reversing dementia you already know that this is completely false. In case you missed it, here’s my video on Dementia:
In that video I explain the primary causes of dementia which include:
Exposure to Mercury and other Heavy Metals
Stress, stagnation, and inactivity
Thyroid and other hormonal imbalances
Inflammation from low-level infections, mold, and food allergies
Artificial food colors, flavors and sweeteners
Nutritional imbalances and deficiencies
The first and most important factor with reversing dementia is avoiding any toxic exposure that will disrupt your brain function. This means avoiding vaccinations, toxins in processed food, and medications. If you’re taking any medications make sure you set up a plan with your doctor to safely wean off your medications while you incorporate all the solutions for restoring your health.
A good start would be incorporating all the dietary and lifestyle changes I explain in this video:
Dr. Dale Bredesen, professor of neurology at the Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA, has been developing a program to reverse cognitive decline which has been extremely successful. With the following treatment protocol 9 out of 10 subjects diagnosed with dementia were able to regain their cognitive function.
Dr. Bredesen’s approach is based on extensive testing of each patient to determine what is affecting the signaling network in the brain. The protocol is then personalized for each patient which includes:
eliminating all simple carbohydrates;
eliminating gluten and processed food;
increasing vegetables, fruits, and non-farmed fish;
reducing stress with yoga and meditation;
increasing sleep from 4-5 hours per night to 7-8 hours per night;
taking methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), vitamin D, CoQ10, and fish oil each day;
optimizing oral hygiene using an electric flosser and electric toothbrush;
fasting for a minimum of 12 hours between dinner and breakfast;
fasting for a minimum of three hours between dinner and bedtime
exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes, 4-6 days per week.
I believe that if we incorporated chiropractic care into Dr. Bredesen’s treatment protocol we would actually see a 100 percent of the patients completely regain their cognitive function.
