Dementia is common amongst the elderly and arrives like a hurricane in slow motion.  The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s Disease, second is Lewy Body Disease.  Regardless of what you call it, dementia is when someone loses touch with reality.  It usually starts with small things, such as someone forgetting a loved one’s name, or the street number of where they have lived for the last 20 years.  Sometimes it progresses into something more puzzling such as a person insisting that there husband or wife will be home soon when in fact they have passed away.  Medical science has yet to determine what causes dementia.  They have autopsied people who died of these diseases and never found the cause, but rather the result of dementia.

The Cause of Dementia
Dementia is caused by toxicity of the brain, a lifetime of accumulated heavy metals, hydrocarbons (oil-based elements) and an endless variety of other elements that simply do not belong in the brain.  Aluminum has been found in the brains of those who were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.  This is a clear indication that heavy metals lead to problems in the brain.

Electricity of Thought
The brain is a delicate dance of neurochemicals and electricity.  It stands to reason that when our brain becomes clogged and congested with foreign particles, toxins, especially heavy metals, it will not be able to function as it should any longer.  Metals of any kind that are lodged in the brain interfere with the electrical activity that allows the brain to function.  The brain is essentially a sponge comprised mostly of fat that is prone to collecting foreign particles that may find its way into it.

Chemicals of Thought
The other problem that caused dementia is an imbalance of brain chemicals.  One herb called Mucuna contains an amino acid called L-Dopa, which is a precursor to the production of dopamine in the brain.  L-Dopa also leads to the production of melatonin and human growth hormone (HGH).  This causes a cascading effect of the production of other brain chemicals and it is this delicate balance of chemicals in the brain that allows us to think clearly.  Other herbs such as Ginkgo Biloba and Gotu Kola contain acids that the brain uses for concentration, reason and memory.  Once again, the presence of toxins in the brain disrupts the production and function of these chemicals.  The result is lacking concentration, reason, and a failing memory.

Accumulation Leads to Blurriness
When we begin to view toxins that are lodged in the brain from this viewpoint, it is easier to understand why a lifetime of this toxic abuse is what eventually leads to dementia.  Dementia begins with forgetfulness and ends with forgetting who our closest loved ones are.

How to Avoid Dementia
There are several steps we can take to avoid the crippling results of dementia:

  • Keep the brain constantly hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.  This is the most fundamental action we must take to be healthy and to keep our brain, our command center, properly hydrated is critical to brain health.  If the brain is not hydrated it cannot get the toxins out of it that have found a way to enter it.
  • Eating Chlorella is key to removing heavy metals from the body so they don’t accumulate in the tissue and brain.  The fiber in Chlorella binds with heavy metals and removes them from the body.  Kelp also removes heavy metals, as does cilantro.  EDTA [Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid] is used as a suppository and is effective for removing heavy metals from the body because it is able to avoid the liver.
  • Consistent use of a Far Infrared Sauna (FIR).  FIR waves are able to penetrate 2 – 4 inches into the flesh and the cells in the body begin to vibrate at the same frequency as the FIR waves which cause toxins to be released from the cells.  This phenomenon is called resonant absorption and it causes the body to actually sweat out toxins such as heavy metals, herbicides and pesticides and a plethora of other elements that do not belong in the body.
  • Stop putting things into your body that don’t belong there to begin with.  Stop eating cooked foods and start eating raw foods.  Cooked foods deposit their toxins in the body and brain, raw foods do not.  In fact, they help remove toxins that have deposited themselves in the body.

Integrating these basic lifestyle changes in your life and adding the herbs mentioned above will keep your mind clear and will allow your mind to always function properly.  It is this path that will not allow you to one day suffer from dementia.
