Recently, an 82-year-old woman who suffered from dementia, and didn’t recognize her own son has miraculously gotten her memory back after changing her diet. This is her story as reported by the Daily Mirror UK.

When his mother’s condition became so severe that for her own safety she had to be kept in a hospital, Mark Hatzer almost came to terms with losing another parent.

Sylvia had lost her memory and become agitated at one point, she had even phoned the police accusing the nurse who were caring for her of kidnap.

A change in diet, which was comprised of high amounts of blueberries and walnuts, has had such a strong impact on Sylvia’s condition that her recipes are now being shared by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Sylvia also began incorporating other healthy foods, including broccoli, kale, spinach, sunflower seeds, green tea, oats, sweet potatoes and even dark chocolate with a high percentage of cacao. All of these foods are known to be beneficial for brain health.

Mark and Sylvia devised this diet together after deciding that the medication was not enough, they looked into the research showing that rates of dementia are much lower in mediterranean countries and copied their eating habits.

“In certain countries Alzheimer’s is virtually unheard of because of their diet.
“Everyone knows about fish but there is also blueberries, strawberries, Brazil nuts and walnuts – these are apparently shaped like a brain to give us a sign that they are good for the brain.”
There were also some cognitive exercises that Mark and his mother would do together like jigsaw puzzles crosswords and meeting people in social situations, Sylvia would also exercise by using a pedaling device outfitted for her chair.
Mark said, “It wasn’t an overnight miracle, but after a couple of months she began remembering things like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more alert, more engaged. Just goes to prove that natural medicine and diet can reverse many conditions that western medicine cannot alleviate.If you would like to set up a consultation please call us at 847 577 4455.
