Hi All who are watching this thread. Here is the update:
My Dad is now 2 1/2 months on raw food. We went through some pretty major cleansing I think, he still has a lot of mucous clearing, but - he does not sleep as much as he used to. He did sleep pretty much the whole day before, only getting up for food when I got him up (about 4 times waking him up before he would finally drag himself out of bed in mid afternoon. Now he gets himself up about 10 -11, and stays up till after dinner at night.
He went through the period where it got worse, where he pretty much did not even know where his room was and how many children he had. I thought - Oh, dear, I finished off my father, and was really scared. That lasted about 2 weeks, but then he started improving and now he says himself - " I was a total zombie, but now I am only half a zombie".
I used to have to take him down to the bathroom and supervise him brushing his teeth and them had to make sure that he would get into his pyjamas, but now I can give him instructions "Go downstairs, brush your teeth first and then change into your pyjamas" and he will do it!
He still gets it wrong sometimes, I send him downstairs with instructions to vacuum his room and he will steam mop it instead, but that is a far cry from previous situation of him forgetting half way down the stairs what he was going downstairs for.
He is beginning to take initiative like getting dressed before he comes up and shaving. I took him to the doctor and he gave him an OK to start going to the gym and also the doctor thought that Dad is of sound enough mind to sign his own will! He was also OK with me taking him off all the medication, so I am very relieved that I must be doing something right.
My father inquired couple of days ago if I think that he might improve enough so that he might get to drive again :-) With cataracts in both eyes it probably might not be a good idea though LOL.
So, raw food definitely works for Dementia!
I'm reviving this thread because an update would be great, but also for another reason: does he by chance have mercury/amalgam fillings? If so, he might want to get them extracted--there's a growing belief that these cause and/or contribute to mental impairment problems like Alzheimers and Dementia.
I have just recently posted an update, and yes, Dad has amalgam fillings. I am well aware that they possibly are a problem, but at this we treating him with large doses of zeolite and will worry about fillings in the future.
He is daily swallowing those toxins, if has amalgams, just fyi. I felt about 90% better from my symptoms once I had mine removed and so did my husband. :) Here is a search engine to find a 'mercury-safe' dentist, in case you need: https://dentalwellness4u.hostasaurus.com/freeservices/find_dentists...
You might not want to do it just yet, but here's some stuff on youtube to give you a bit of an idea of what happens w/ the fillings..
So happy he has improved so much. :) so wonderful.
