Bringing Mom Back From Dementia
This book contains an abundance of useful information for anyone suffering from or assisting someone with Dementia. Bringing Mom Back From Dementia is the full account of my mother’s experience and the description of her treatment and remarkable recovery.
My elderly mother had lost nearly all of her short-term memory and was rapidly losing her ability to think clearly or even recognize her own children. She had multiple health conditions that can trigger different types of Dementia, including some behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s. She had been diagnosed as having severe progressive Dementia. Most doctors had told us it was hopeless, and we should prepare ourselves to live with her ever-worsening condition.
Fortunately, we were able to find a doctor willing to see what could be done.
We explored many possible treatments that might help her memory, cognition, and physical health including:
- Bioidentical Hormones
- Thyroid support
- Nutritional therapy
- Hearing loss
- Allergy treatments
- and many others
The sad fact is that mental decline and dementia are often considered as untreatable and an inevitable part of aging.
The good news is that these problems can in many cases be helped through natural, non-toxic, and affordable means. Welcome to the true story of my mother’s return to clarity and the great improvement in her life.

She was getting into accidents and not realizing what had happened.
It was terrifying to watch her decline!
