what causes Dementias, Memory Loss


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.
