The Discovery of Dementia

Alois Alzheimer identified Auguste Deter as the first Alzheimer’s patient in 1906.

Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness whose symptoms included memory loss, language problems, and unpredictable behavior. Early onset (dementia) of Alzheimer’s disease is caused by mutation in a single gene. A mutation whose ultimate effect is the formation of amyloid plaques. These plaques form between nerve cells and suffocate them.

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the greatest health problems today.  Approximately 100 million dementia sufferers are predicted worldwide by 2050, the majority of whom will have Alzheimer’s disease. 95% of Alzheimer’s patients suffer late onset of the illness after age 65. Dementia is an illness that usually occurs slowly over time, and includes a progressive state of deteriation in the brain.

A Neurologist can determine through a series of tests if you are suffering from or headed for Alzheimer’s disease.

 

10 Things a Person with Dementia Would Tell You If They Could

 

  1. You know what makes me feel safe, secure, and happy? A smile.
  2. Did you ever consider this? When you get tense and uptight it makes me feel tense and uptight.
  3. Instead of getting all bent out of shape when I do something that seems perfectly normal to me, and perfectly nutty to you, why not just smile at me? It will take the edge off the situation all the way around.1
  4. Please try to understand and remember it is my short term memory, my right now memory, that is gone — don’t talk so fast, or use so many words.
  5. You know what I am going to say if you go off into long winded explanations on why we should do something?I am going to say No, because I can never be certain if you are asking me to do something I like, or drink a bottle of castor oil. So I’ll just say No to be safe.
  6. Slow down. And don’t sneak up on me and start talking. Did I tell you I like smiles?
  7. Make sure you have my attention before you start blabbering away. What is going to happen if you start blabbering away and you don’t have my attention, or confuse me? I am going to say No – count on it.
  8. My attention span and ability to pay attention are not as good as they once were, please make eye contact with me before you start talking. A nice smile always gets my attention. Did I mention that before?
  9. Sometimes you talk to me like I am a child or an idiot.How would you like it if I did that to you? Go to your room and think about this. Don’t come back and tell me you are sorry, I won’t know what you are talking about. Just stop doing it and we will get along very well, and probably better than you think.
  10. You talk too much — instead try taking my hand and leading the way. I need a guide not a person to nag me all the time.

How Coconut Oil Helps with Memory Loss

 

Scientists have found that coconut oil does improve memory and reduces memory loss. Mrs. Newport’s husband had Alzheimer’s and medication did not help. So, Mrs. Newport gave her husband coconut oil and the results were immediate and showed dramatic memory improvement, as well as, functionality improvement.

Scientific Research

 

A study in 2004 regarding the effects of coconut oil given to senior citizens with dementia and Alzheimer’s showed an improved score on the Alzheimer’s Cognitive rating scale. In addition, everyone showed an immediate improvement on a Paragraph-Recall memory test. People really are seeing that coconut oil does improve memory, drastically! Taking coconut oil regularly definitely has overwhelming positive results. The sooner you make a change the better the results will be. Even in severe conditions coconut oil has been proven to reverse memory loss from all different types of dementia.

How It Works

 

Coconut Oil gives your brain a boost. Everything you eat turns into energy, fat, and waste. Your muscles need energy to keep you strong and active. Your immune system needs energy to keep you healthy. Your brain needs energy to process and recall memory. As you age your brain loses the ability to absorb glucose and convert it to energy. This results in memory loss and other disorders. Ketones can still be absorbed by the brain and used as an energy substitute. The more pure the ketone is, the better….Coconut Oil is about 60% pure and absorbed more easily and quickly by the brain and converted directly into energy. Results of coconut oil are almost immediate as your brain is getting an instant fuel boost.

 

Benefit of Coconut Oil

 

Coconut Oil is used to treat diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, thyroid conditions and chronic fatigue. Additionally, coconut oil is used topically to moisturize the skin and treat skin conditions. Coconut Oil is a great weight loss product as well because it increases energy, improves cholesterol levels, and promotes healthy weight.

 

Dosage and Dietary Guidelines

 

The improved memory from using coconut oil last about 8 hours. It’s best to take multiple doses per day, like most other medications.

Week 1 – 1Tbsp 2x per day

Week 2 – 1 Tbsp 3x per day

Ongoing – 1 Tbsp – 4x per day

You can take 6-8 Tablespoons per day, but anymore may cause diarrhea. It is best to use the coconut oil with foods that are high in protein and fiber because these types of foods helps your brain and body to better absorb the nutrients.

2017 Dementia Statistics

5.5 million Americans of all ages are living with Dementia.

5.3 million are 65 and older and 200,000 of dementia patients are under age 65.

3% of dementia patients are ages 65-74, 17% ages 75-84, and 32% are ages 85 and older.

People whose Dementia has progressed to the last stages of Alzheimer’s is ages 75 and older. Texas alone has 360,000 Dementia residents. By the year 2025 Texas Dementia residents will have increased to 490,000, which, is an increase of 36% within 8 years.

10.3% of men age 45 have Dementia compared to 19.5% of women age 45.

11.6% of men age 65 have Dementia compared to 21.1% of women age 65.

Approximately 700,000 people age 65 and older in the U.S. will have Dementia when they die.

Although Dementia is a very devastating and brain deteriating disease DON’T BE ALARMED because the right vitamins, food, and healthy drinks can take all our worries away while at the same time saving our lives and the lives of our loved ones by going to dementiapreventions.com

Preventing Dementia is a lot Easier than you Think

As we all know Dementia is the first stages of Alzheimer’s. The amount of time it takes for someone to go from Dementia to full blown Alzheimer’s varies, but, one can live 4-8 years after diagnosis. One can live for 20 years if they take precautions such as: eating the right foods, taking B vitamins, and omega 3 vitamins. Researcher have found that people with high stress have two and a half times the risk of developing dementia, compared to those with less stress.

In 2014, nearly 36 million people worldwide had Dementia but only 25% had been diagnosed. It’s predicted that in 2031, more than 3 million people over the age of 85 will have Dementia that has progressed to Alzheimer’s. In addition to memory loss, this disease causes financial ruin. The cost of caring for one with Alzheimer’s is about $220 billion a year, making it the most expensive disease.

 

                                 15 Ways to Prevent Dementia

 

  1.  Learn a second, third, or fourth language – Adding another language to your vocabulary can delay the progression of Dementia to Alzheimer’s.

2.  Drink raw fruit and vegetable juices – Drinking fruit and vegetable juices more than 3 times a week will cut the risk of developing Alzheimer’s by 76%.

 

3.  Take a vitamin K supplement – Vitamin K plays a crucial role in anti-aging and may prevent Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

 

4.  Reduce Stress – A study has shown that people who have mild cognitive impairment and high levels of anxiety were 135% more likely to develop Dementia.

 

5.  Exercise Regularly – Such as; walking, dancing, swimming, cycling, and gardening

 

6.  Laughing – It has been proven that playing, laughing, and being active helps engage the brain, grow new brain cells, and prevent Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

 

7.  Run 15 miles per week – A new study shows that running 15 miles a week may reduce the risk of Dementia by 40%.

 

8.  Eat more fruits – Fruits contain a compound called “fisetin” which fights Dementia and Alzheimer’s. It is found in strawberries, mangos. Fisetin also has anti-inflammatory properties that will stop the onset of Dementia.

 

9.  Meditation – Meditation increases protective tissue in the brain, which, helps seniors feel less stressed and reduces the hormone cortisol, which, increases the risk of developing Dementia.

10.  Eat Fish – Fish is high in Omega 3 fatty acids which control blood clotting, build cell membranes in the brain, protect against heart disease and slows Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

 

11.  Mediterranean Diet – Eat foods high in Omega 3 such as: fish, chicken, olive oil. It will improve cognition and lower the risk of cognitive decline.

 

12.  Quit Smoking – Research shows that smokers have a 45% higher risk of developing Dementia.

 

13.  Learn Alzheimer’s Symptoms – Early detection and prevention are the best key. You can find Dementia symptoms on my website at: dementiapreventions.com

 

14.  Sleep better – Lack of sleep has been linked to increased cortisol and stress which are both risk factors for Dementia and Alzheimer’s. More information is included in my website at: dementiapreventions.com

 

15.  Limit Sugar Intake – Diabetes is linked to Dementia, so, keeping your blood sugar under control and managing your sugar intake helps helps keep you and your brain healthy.
