Foods that Fight Dementia

Having dementia and diabetes, a dangerous combination, my Grandmother was just put in assisted living a month ago at the age of 82. I’ve been sadly watching her demise these last few years remembering how we used to have stimulating conversations – to her now not even knowing who I am, where I live or what I do. In fact, my Great Grandmother also had dementia and I witnessed her mind changing throughout the years. Thousands of families struggle with this same scenario as they watch loved ones suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s. My Mom has never had a great memory to begin with, but at the young age of 58 I am already seeing her memory slowly fading. I am 42 and seeing this pattern, started to get concerned about my own memory and wondering if there’s anything I can do right now as prevention? I hesitated even researching Foods that Fight Dementia as I could already imagine what was on the list. Sure enough, the list is very similar to our Superfoods list! No big surprises, but it serves as a reminder. With continued awareness we can incorporate as many of these Foods that Fight Dementia in into our diets and try to keep our minds sharp and healthy.

Vitamins

Omega 3 – In addition to oils, nuts and seeds, I prefer vegetarian brands of supplements like Ovega or Aloha where the Omegas are sourced from the algae itself instead of the fish, skipping the middle man and going straight to the source!
Vitamin D – 15 -20 minutes of sunlight a day is great! If you live in a cloudy environment you may want to take a supplement.
Many of the foods listed above contain Vitamins A, B, C & E

    My husband was diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s and early stage Huntington’s disease. He is aware of what is going on some of the time but he refuses to bathe or do any of the things the doctors tell him. He could hardly get around because all he does is sit in front of the TV all day. He refuses to go for a walk or to a senior center and he refuses to bathe. I was beside myself as we cannot go anywhere when he is dirty and stinks. I didn’t know what to do, I could not physically overpower him and make him do things and when I ask him he tells me I am not his boss. There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable treatment. His Primary care provider introduced me to Kycuyu Health Clinic and their amazing Herbal treatments. The treatment is a miracle. the disease is totally under control. No case of delusion, disorientation, forgetfulness, making things up, hallucination, Muscle weakness, jumbled speech, loss of appetite or confusion in the evening hours. Visit www. kycuyuhealthclinic . com Its just amazing!

    My husband was diagnosed 3 years ago with dementia after he began to lose things. He would accuse someone of stealing, even in the night. He was on medication but his symptoms progressed to anger and short fuse over little things. This was a man who was soft spoken, slow to anger and gentle. It was such a change for us to try to manage a whole new way of living. He is 67, I’m 66 and I felt so stressed sometimes. I didn’t know what each day will start with. I retired in April that year and was with him 24/7. I have been researching for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Health herbs clinic Dementia HERBAL FORMULA (just google it). It is a smashing one of a kind product for reversing Dementia completely.4 months into treatment he has improved dramatically. the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, particularly the hallucination, weakness, and his mood swings. visit their website healthherbsclinic .com I Just wanted to share for people suffering from this horrible disease
