Preventing dementia

You and your physician can work together to reduce your risk of dementia.dementia affects choices

Dementia and symptoms that mimic dementia have a number of causes. Many of these symptoms can be treated with lifestyle changes. Some symptoms can be treated with a homeopathic remedy matched to your particular condition.

Recent research indicates that chronic inflammation predisposes individuals to neurological, cognitive, and emotional disorders. Because homeopathy can help to treat acute and chronic inflammatory conditions, it is possible that it may help with prevention of dementia.

Lifestyle issues that affect your brain:
• Dehydration, which can be remedied by drinking more water
• Poor food choices, which deprive your body of the B vitamins and essential fatty acids necessary for your brain to function at its peak
• Obesity, which can lead to diabetes, heart disease, thyroid abnormalities, and, by extension, dementia
• Stress and the corresponding hormones released affect all organ systems, which can result in high blood pressure
• Depression and its triggers can show up as what is called pseudo-dementia
• Use of toxic substances: pesticides, fungicides, heavy metals, tobacco, street drugs, alcohol, and even some conventional medicines could be contributing factors
• Social isolation—healthy relationships help prevent dementia
• Lack of mental functioning—people who keep mentally active, learning a new skill (sports, strategy games, musical instruments, foreign languages) decrease their risk of dementia
• Untreated STDs

Work with your homeopath to find the homeopathic remedy for the following dementia-related conditions:
• Adverse reactions to medicines
• Diseases that affect the immune system
• Untreated infections
• Low blood sugar/hypoglycemia
• Lyme disease
• Problems breathing, thus getting necessary oxygen to your brain

Seek immediate medical help if you suspect dementia-like symptoms which could be caused by a brain tumor, diabetes, encephalitis, leukemia, meningitis, multiple sclerosis, a stroke, or some other life-threatening disease. These will often be accompanied by confusion, headaches, vomiting, delirium, fever, paralysis, loss of speech, or visual disturbances.
