Dementia

dementia

Dementia has many causes and must be distinguished from delirium…the difference is that delirium is acute and dementia is chronic but both have the same or similar symptoms.

In either case, it is an accumulation of toxins over a lifetime resulting in neurological damage….the toxemia comes from all sources including diet, EMF, water, air, skin absorption of chemicals from cosmetics and hygiene products. Heavy metal accumulation is pandemic and is a large contributor.

Rational Approach:

Detoxification is the only way to allow the body to be restored to adequate and even optimal functioning….THERE IS NO OTHER WAY

Then, appropriate nutrition to restore the raw materials necessary for healthy new cell production leading to healthy organ function and hence a healthy physiology.
