what causes Dementias, Memory Loss
Non Painful Diseases
Memory loss is progressive with age but not due to aging.
There are plenty of nonagenarians and centenarians with clear
minds and good memories to prove that age is not the deciding
factor in the dementias. Why do some people deteriorate much
sooner? Could you prevent personal deterioration of mental
abilities? You probably can. You will know it by noticing
memory improvement. Telephone numbers that left you with no
recall, unless you wrote them down, number by number, now
form groups as you hear them, and you can jot them down the
way you always did! This is a good sign of memory improvement.
Your writing can improve. The jagged, crooked, misaligned
words can be smoothly written again! You can remember
things that happened earlier in the day and talk about it later, at
mealtime. You can finish your thoughts in conversation.
Mental deterioration of the elderly is not as complicated as is
generally believed. Although circulation and blood pressure play
a role, the effect of toxins is much greater. The action of toxins
is greater in age than in youth. The same polluted water and food
causes disorientation in the elderly when it only gives a young
person a stomach ache.
The liver's detoxification capability may be the real issue.
Indeed, the liver may age, in accordance with the calendar date.
Perhaps the liver is the only truly aging organ. It may even determine
your life span. The answer, then, is to stop giving it toxic
substances and shortening your life span.
As the liver is less able to detoxify them, common toxins are
allowed to roam the body with the circulation, doing harm to all
the organs. The brain feels disoriented or dizzy; there is memory
loss. At first, the liver can “catch up” its work and finally clear
the toxin for excretion. But, eventually, it can't catch up or keep
up. The body, notably the brain, is bathed in toxic chemicals that
interfere with its functioning. Now, the elderly person must use a
cane for stability, must walk very carefully not to fall, must write
everything down to remember it, calls people by their wrong
names, can't “find” the right words to speak with, can't finish
sentences, must write on a calendar to keep the days straight,
starts talking to themselves to help think of things, develops
tremors and unsteady gait, acquires a passive personality, loses
weight, gets stooped, stops reading the newspaper.
All these signs of aging (dementias) can be reversed by simply
removing the common toxins with which we are already
Of primary significance are food molds. These cause brain
hemorrhages. Clean up diet, mouth, body, environment, very
Of course, an elderly person cannot bring these changes to
herself or himself. If you have a loved one with symptoms of
aging, and this person is willing to cooperate with you, you can
honestly promise them numerous improvements. Spend a good
deal of your effort on persuasion since living longer or being
healthier may not seem worth giving up a coffee and doughnut
breakfast. On the other hand, they might respond to the goal of
needing fewer pills, getting into their own apartment again or
becoming freed from a walker.
Walter Heffern, 64, had been to various neurologists but could not find
any help. He appeared to have the same kind of mental deterioration
as his mother, but at a much earlier age. He couldn't understand
an ordinary conversation; he constantly spoke about winning
money, walked hesitantly and had to be left undisturbed to
accomplish anything—even eating and dressing. He needed a lot
of care. We found he had Ascaris larvae in the brain—in the
cerebrum, where you think. He also had Acanthocephala, Dipetalonema
(a chicken roundworm), amoeba (Entamoeba histolytica)
and Fischoedrius in the thinking part of his brain. He had
been in the poultry business all his life: his mother probably shared
this exposure, as well as other lifestyle habits that gave them
solvents and pollutants besides parasites. He had constant ringing
in his ears, this could affect hearing an ordinary conversation. He
had a water softener that would have supplied a daily dose of
aluminum to the brain, too. There always were dogs in the house.
Perhaps the marvel is that he was no worse off, a tribute to human
strength in general.
