“My mother has dementia” is a difficult thing to hear from an adult child who has a parent effected by the illness. I have worked with many families in this situation and it is never easy to hear this difficult news. This illness is increasing at a very fast rate in the United States and in fact much of the world. “My mother has dementia” is something you never get use to hearing, it can be very difficult .
The incredible rise of Alzheimer's Disease
We are in a wave of increasing cases of Alzheimer's disease. In the United States the CDC has stated that the rates are rising dramatically. A new study published in the journal Neurology says the number of people with Alzheimer’s is expected to triple over the next 40 years to about 13.8 million by 2050, with about half of that group age 85 and older. This will be a tremendous number of families that will be suffering the consequences of the illness. The disease steals more than memory, it steals the personality. The part of the brain that effects personality is ruined by nasty brain plaque. If you are saying My mother has dementia you may not recognize the same person in a short time.
The brain is deeply changed when the plaques attack the brain.
What should you do, there is much research into the illness and much is being done but we are still a far away from a cure. Exercise and diet can help but not enough to stop the damaging effects of the bad brain plaques.
Some good news: There is some very good news, researchers for 7 different countries combined and created a very targeted diet that attacks the brain plaques and an amazing thing happened, much of the memory was restored. This was not a typical diet but a very targeted brain boosting diet that attacked Alzheimer's disease. This may be the first proven diet to reverse the illness. If you are saying my mother has dementia do not give up without a fight.
You may see the targeted diet from Europe that reverse Alzheimer's
