Dementia is a term used to describe the state of a person’s mental functioning, not a particular illness.
A mental deterioration from a previously higher level that is severe enough to interfere with daily activities is referred to as dementia. An individual with dementia experiences two or more of these particular challenges, such as a deterioration in:
- Forgetting recent information or events
- Repeating remarks or inquiries over a very short period of time
- Losing or putting frequently used objects in odd places.
- Not knowing the day of the week, month, or season
- Struggling to find the correct phrases
- Observing a change in attitude, conduct, or interests
- A further deterioration in memory and decision-making abilities are indicators that dementia is getting worse.
- Finding the correct things to say and speaking become more challenging.
- Everyday complex chores including cooking, cleaning, using the TV remote, brushing your teeth, and paying payments become increasingly difficult.
- Alterations in sleeping patterns
- Anxiety, frustration, bewilderment, agitation, increases or worsening, suspicion, melancholy, or depression
- Requiring increased assistance with activities of daily life, such as eating, bathing, dressing, and using the restroom
- Having hallucinations (seeing undetectable people or objects)
These symptoms are general symptoms of dementia. Each person diagnosed with dementia has different symptoms, depending on what area of their brain is damaged.
Your brain’s deterioration leads to dementia. The nerve cells in your brain are harmed by dementia, which makes it impossible for your brain to interact with the other parts of your body. Another cause of dementia is obstructed blood flow to the brain, which deprives it of oxygen and nutrients. Brain tissue perishes without nourishment and oxygen.
Depending on the part of your brain that is damaged, you may experience a variety of symptoms. Some forms of dementia are incurable and get worse with time. Other types of dementia are brought on by other illnesses that can have an impact on your brain. Dementia-like symptoms can also be brought on by a different group of medical conditions. The symptoms of dementia are reversible, and many of these disorders are curable.
Your brain can be kept fueled with the oxygen and nutrients it needs to function at its highest level by keeping blood vessels free of cholesterol buildup, maintaining normal blood pressure, healthy blood sugar levels, and maintaining a healthy weight. In other words, by staying as healthy as you can. You can do the following specific healthy actions:
- Give up smoking
- Adopt a Mediterranean diet that emphasizes whole grains, vegetables, fruits, fish, shellfish, nuts, legumes, and olive oil, with little or no red meat.
- Make sure you work out for at least 30 minutes most days of the week.
- Try puzzles, word games, and other mentally stimulating activities to keep your mind active. These pursuits might postpone the onset of dementia.
- Engage your head, heart, and soul by interacting with others and talking about current events.
Dementia can be effectively treated using homoeopathy. Homoeopathic dementia medications are made from ingredients that are found in nature and are fully safe to use.
