The following is an incredible story of 82 years old woman suffering from dementia, who was not able to recognize her son but managed to reverse the symptoms only by changing her diet.
Her condition was so severe at some point, that her son had no choice but to take her to hospital. While staying at the hospital, she even phoned the police once to report her nurse as her kidnapper.
After having no success with traditional medicine, they decided to enrich her diet with a lot of walnuts, blueberries and other antioxidant-rich foods, that drastically improved her condition.
After conducting research, her son discovered that the people living in the Mediterranean countries had the lowest rate of dementia sufferers, hence, they decided to copy their eating habits.
She started eating plenty of healthy food such as kale, broccoli, olives, spinach, green tea, sweet potatoes, dark chocolate and sunflower seeds, all of which are a staple in the Mediterranean diet and a known food that improves brain health.
Mark, whose brother Brent also died in 1977, said: “When my mum was in the hospital she thought it was a hotel – but the worst one she had ever been in.
“She didn’t recognize me and phoned the police as she thought she’d been kidnapped.
“Since my dad and brother died we have always been a very close little family unit, just me and my mum, so for her to not know who I was devastating.
“We were a double act that went everywhere together. I despaired and never felt so alone as I had no other family to turn to.
“Overnight we went from a happy family to one in crisis.
“When she left the hospital, instead of prescribed medication we thought we’d perhaps try an alternative treatment.
“In certain countries, Alzheimer’s is virtually unheard of because of their diet.
“Everyone knows about fish but there is also blueberries, strawberries, Brazil nuts, and walnuts – these are apparently shaped like a brain to give us a sign that they are good for the brain.”
There were also some cognitive exercises that Mark and his mother would do together like jigsaw puzzles crosswords and meeting people in social situations, Sylvia would also exercise by using a pedaling device outfitted for her chair.
Mark said, “It wasn’t an overnight miracle, but after a couple of months she began remembering things like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more alert, more engaged..
“People think that once you get a diagnosis your life is at an end. You will have good and bad days, but it doesn’t have to be the end. For an 82-year-old she does very well, she looks 10 years younger and if you met her you would not know she had gone through all of this.
“She had to have help with all sorts of things, now she is turning it round. We are living to the older age in this country, but we are not necessarily living healthier.”
This story is a prove that our bodies are highley reseliant under right conditions and a proper diet.
An article published in Hippocratic Post, explains:
“We already know that the aluminum content of brain tissue in late-onset or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is found in age-matched controls. So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminum in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease.
Even higher levels of aluminum have been found in the brains of individuals, diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic (usually late onset) Alzheimer’s disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminum through the environment (e.g. Camelford) or through their workplace.
This means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset, for example, the fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed to unusually high levels of aluminum in their everyday lives.”
Another study from 2016, outlines that :
“We now show that some of the highest levels of aluminum ever measured in human brain tissue are found in individuals who have died with a diagnosis of familial Alzheimer’s disease.
The levels of aluminum in brain tissue from individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease are similar to those recorded in individuals who died of an aluminum-induced encephalopathy while undergoing renal dialysis.”
Professor Exley added:
“Familial Alzheimer’s disease is an early-onset form of the disease with first symptoms occurring as early as 30 or 40 years of age. It is extremely rare, perhaps 2-3% of all cases of Alzheimer’s disease.
Its bases are genetic mutations associated with a protein called amyloid-beta, a protein which has been heavily linked with the cause of all forms of Alzheimer’s disease. Individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease produce more amyloid beta and the onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are much earlier in life.”
