One-third of seniors with dementia are being given antipsychotics—even though such toxic drugs are not approved to treat dementia! A report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that nearly one-third of older adults with dementia who spent more than 100 days in a nursing home were given antipsychotics through Medicare’s prescription drug program in 2012. We previously reported that a similar situation exists with brain-damaged veterans—and even with infants and young children, especially those treated through Medicaid. They are all given these very toxic and inappropriate medications. Why is this happening? Are Big Pharma profits more important than the health of our most vulnerable populations—seniors and young people?
A promising study published in Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry reveals the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin (which gives it its golden hue) may provide what the study authors describe as an "effective therapeutic strategy to reverse age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction." Age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction is occurring on an epidemic scale in Western countries and include, "stroke, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases." Presently, very few if any conventional medical interventions are capable of providing effective solutions, and none have been found to reverse underlying pathologies in conditions whose trajectories are generally characterized as 'incurable.' All the more reason why the new study holds so much promise in providing an evidence-based natural solution that is safe, effective, affordable and easily accessible as a familiar food ingredient.
My mother was going to start on Aricept. My dad said she needs to be on the drug. I told him "no," and that both of them should start on 2 tablespoons a day of coconut oil. In 5 days her memory was getting better and she could keep a conversation, finishing sentences. She was feeling better, and my sister talked to her for 40 minutes, while she was not repeating herself and answered questions. My mother was very alert, and my sister said she hasn't had a conversation with mom like that in months.
In this video report Steve in Sydney describes how coconut oil reversed dementia in his 85 year old father in only 35 days.

Use the coconut oil!
My mum has vascular dementia made worse by a terrible fall 5 years ago. I do what I can, but before she had coconut oil she was a very ‘happy little cabbage’ but would drop into massive depressions.
After only 4 days on the oil, she is happy to […]

Man 86 with Very Last Stage of Pick’s Dementia is Recovering Personality and Physical Health after Starting Coconut Oil
My father was in the very last stage of Pick’s, a form of dementia, when we placed him in a care facility in Nov. of 2011. It was expected that he would not survive past the holidays.
When we heard about coconut oil as a dementia therapy, our family thought, ”why not? What can it possibly hurt at this point? Wouldn’t it be neat if coconut oil helped his symptoms?”
My father, age 86, has been taking coconut oil since December of 2011 and he is […]

Perhaps more amazing than this is my mother. She has had mental disease for 45 years. Some have diagnosed her […]
