It has been 7 months since the setback with my mother caused by the shingles in her eye and the ESBL UTI she got from the hospital. I know that some of you are dealing with similar problems and have elderly parents that you care for. If you have been following
this blog, you know that the problems caused by the shingles and the UTI set us back to less than ground zero. At this point in time, we have regained a lot of the progress we had previously seen before the problems in late June, but we have not yet regained
My mother is currently getting a lot of supplements that supply various antioxidants that the body no longer supplies to protect brain cells. We had also added a number of the so-called "super foods" that help to rebuild the body and brain. I still maintain
the believe that the brain can be rebuilt if supplied the nutrients that it needs to maintain and grow. Although each individual may have varying needs to accomplish this, I truly hope to prove that people with dementia can be saved and even healed to live
a normal life. Through my extensive and constant research, I have learned to much, and will share all of it when I get everything together. Although dementia may be caused by a number of different problems, most of it is caused by the lack of antioxidants
that the body no longer produces.
The antioxidants protect brain cells and allow them to reproduce and grow. When the antioxidants are no longer produced, the brain cells start to die. Once the cells die, they are gone, but new cells can grow if given the nutrients and antioxidants they need.
When the new cells grow, they need to develop new synaptic and neural connections. This essentially means re-teaching skills as you would teach a child.
Some of this may sound very disjointed, but there is really so much to talk about that I don't know where to start. The answer for the aged, and even those of us that are getting older includes so many facets. Our diets, and what we eat are very important,
but we also have to pay attention to the functions and antioxidants that are reduced as we age. Hereditary factors may play a part in what happens to us, but, from my research, they are minimal when we give our bodies what they need to function properly.
My initial intent for this blog was to share healthy diet alternatives, but really all of this ties into our eventual physical and mental health. Although improving my mother's condition has become a focus in my concern, I am also concerned with the future
health, both physical and mental, of both my husband and I, and I am convinced that the natural methods are the most effective.
As I get this together, I will share my findings. We have an appointment with a highly recommended homeopathic doctor tomorrow. I will see if he can offer anything that I don't already know. I am hoping that he can offer new ideas, or shed some light on recommended
dosages of supplements. In future blogs, I will share more of my findings
