HOPE FOR DEMENTIA PATIENTS?

I once asked my mom's cardiologist which diseases doctors feared most for themselves. His immediate answer: stroke and dementia. I had expected him to say cancer.

Dementia is incurable, irreversible and terminal. At least that is what doctors and medical researchers claim. The disease doesn't concern us much until it strikes our elderly parents and they start showing signs of deteriorating mental health.

After my mom was diagnosed with dementia in March last year, I read anything I could lay my hands on about the disease. I now having a better understanding of what it can do to the patient, and can empathize with caregivers of dementia patients.

Prescription drugs only help to slow down the ravages of the disease. Do a search on Google and Youtube and you will be amazed at the myriad of miracle cures for dementia. The video below is one example.



Researchers say the ketones found in coconut oil have slowed the progression of Alzheimer's disease in some people and may actually prevent it. Do you know of anyone who has tried this cure with encouraging results?

A word of caution. This video is posted here for educational purposes only. What works for some people may not work for others. Consult a doctor before experimenting with any alleged remedies.
