Introduction to Alternative Treatments for Dementia

It’s hard to find real, honest statistics about Americans who have dementia. It’s also difficult to find information about how many Americans are likely to develop dementia in the future. In the U.K., this information is readily available and easy to find. At the top of a Google search for information on “Dementia Statistics”, UK stats rank first and a web site at www.dementiastatistics.org provides data that’s easy to relate to. In the UK, 1 in 3 people born this year will develop dementia. That’s bleak, but at least it’s honest [1].

I began researching Lewy Body Dementia research cure options for an Uncle who suddenly started having strange symptoms. I was in Malaysia at the time when I found out about it, so I set up a workstation at my AirBnB and started doing research. And I discovered that information about Lewy Body Dementia is scanty. But information about Parkinson’s Disease cures are more prolific. And while most doctors won’t give patients a lead like this, I think it’s important for me to tell people that Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease are most likely the same disease with different expressions. So, if you’ve stumbled across this article and you’re looking for a lead to follow to find a cure for Lewy Body Dementia, know that you can also look for a cure for Parkison’s Disease (as a Google search) and work with the holistic therapies that work for patients with PD too.

But now…more about statistics and why it might be hard to research this disease and how to approach the problem of finding the Lewy Body Dementia research cure data:

In the United States, statistics about dementia are presented differently. I have to dig to find the same statistics (I find only that 1 in 3 seniors will die of Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia). When I do a search for “Dementia Statistics US”, I end up with the number of people who have Alzheimer’s disease (which is not a statistic). The second listing at Google for this search is for a web site at www.alz.org/facts (The Alzheimer’s Facts and Figures Report for the Alzheimer’s Association). That’s not surprising since Alzheimer’s is the most famous type of dementia that Americans are familiar with, but what strikes me as interesting is the fact that 1) the image/graph presented by the UK site has exactly the same format as the image/graph presented by the Alzheimer’s association even though these two organizations offer up very different types of data on “dementia” and 2) these organizations do not appear to be related to each other at all, at least not on the surface [2].


After spending several years researching cancer cures and the hard-core political games used to cover up these cures, I expect to find strange aberrations in the way facts and figures are presented in the United States and in certain other countries that aim to disillusion the public rather than inform them about disease. Most Americans don’t think critically about things like statistics and if a loved one or a patient is diagnosed with a disease, information must be found quickly and emotions make it hard to distill what’s what. The U.S. government has a long history of bamboozling the general public into believing implausible things that have since become the cornerstone of Mainstream Medicine. But I’m not going to talk very much here about the politics of dementia. Rather, I ask that the reader realize that all of the treatments outlined have been covered up by political forces that aim to protect certain profit interests. 


It’s not your doctor’s fault that cures for diseases like dementia are not well-known or propagated through clinics and hospitals. Doctors are not educated about these cures, most of them have taken only one or no classes on nutrition. Medical students are hand-picked for their willingness to follow along and because they’re individuals who are not likely to challenge prevailing beliefs. That’s not to say that there aren’t some truly gifted, amazing doctors out there who swim against the tide. There are. But if your doctor has failed to give you even so much as a lead that you could follow to cure your disease, know that you’re not alone and that doctors are trained to peddle pharmaceuticals, surgeries, and high-tech diagnostic tests that will profit the big players in the medical industry. Cures for diseases are not as profitable as treatments that cover up and/or perpetuate health problems [3].


Unfortunately, the pharmaceuticals that are available to treat dementia patients do not aim toward a cure. Many of them only work for about a year to cover up the symptoms. Or the treatments do not cover up the symptoms, but prolong life by a few months at best. Conventional medicine offers only a few treatments and as with all diseases today, patients and doctors alike are taught that there is no cure. Antipsychotics and benzodiazepines cause unwanted side effects when used in high doses. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients receive riluzole to slow the progression of the disease and diminish symptoms, but riluzole does not treat the underlying cause so while taking this medicine, the patient’s condition continues to decline. So patients need to know that there are alternative treatments available that can sometimes even reverse the course of their disease. Doctors are not trained to know this information and, in fact, liability issues prevent them from recommending anything but drugs or surgeries for most diseases. [4] 


We are presenting information about several diseases all in the same location that belong to the same Disease Family Tree including Lewy Body Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and Multiple Sclerosis. These diseases all share certain similarities and they tend to occur more often in certain geographical areas which has led some people to speculate that the true cause of these diseases may have to do with the food supply and a lack of certain trace minerals. Indeed, many of the substances that have actual curative effects work on more than just one disease. Substances such as MMS and DMSO have an extremely broad range of effects while certain herbs may provide supportive therapy for diseases that affect certain systems or even sometimes multiple systems of the body. Synthetic pharmaceuticals are less likely to have an effect on a broad range of diseases and they are also specifically calibrated not to cure the body because to do so would not be profitable for Big Pharma.  [5]


Given that none of the pharmaceutical treatments on the market today offer cures and may even hasten the process of decline, dementia patients and patients with degenerative neuronal diseases who choose to use alternative therapies are likely to have better results overall, but there are no guarantees. The alternative treatments presented in this book were chosen because all of them have the potential to provide curative effects, or rather, to heal the body rather than just covering the ailment with a band-aid, as many pharmaceutical agents do.
