Senility


 

(Senile Dementia, Cereborovascular Disease)

SYMPTOMS – Memory loss and inability to reason properly (in older years) interferes with the home and employment. It also causes depression.

CAUSES – Also called Dementia, this occurs in old age; yet it is not widespread. Most older people do not have this problem. Many people in advanced age are quite clear in their thought processes.

There are actially two types of dementia: Primary dementia comes on gradually, without apparent cause. Secondary dementia comes on suddenly from brain injury, operation, drugs, or diabetic coma; it is usually reversible. Senility and Alzheimer’s are examples of primary dementia.

Common causes of senility include poor blood circulation to (and in) the brain, cerebral arteriosclerosos, heavy metal toxicity, prolonged nutritional deficiency, prolonged use of medicinal drigs, and lack of exercise and fresh air.

Calcification and fatty cholestorol deposits in the middle cerebral artery reduces the main blood supply to the brain, resulting in a poor oxygen supply tp it. This produces a loss of memory and typical “senile” changes.

The experts tell us that, over a matter of years, wearing uncomfortable collars and neckties tend to cause eddies in the carotid arteries, contributing to the deposition of cholestorol.

Many of those diagnosed as senile are actually suffering from the effects of medicinal drugs. If you want a happy old age, avoid drugs throughout your life. Hearing, thyroid, liver, or kidney problems can also produce apparent memory loss. There is the possibility of brain tumors, as well as stroke, and various problems with the nervous system.

A combination of nutritional deficiencies is often the underlying cause.

NATURAL REMEDIES

  • Try to eliminate causal factors, mentioned above.
  • Reduce vitamin D intake to a maximum of 400 units a day; because an excess works with cholestorol to cause blood vessel problems. Vitamin D is angiotoxic; that is, toxic to blood vessels.
  • Each day, taking both Choline (500 mg) and lecithin (1tsp.) is important. Also taking vitamin c (1,000 mg) to bowel tolerance, as well as vitamin E (400-800 mg). The B complex vitamins are important for the nerveous system and brain. Flaxseed oil (1Tbsp.).
  • A New England hospital successfully treated senility by giving niacin (2,000 mg) and a high potency vitamin supplememt. This opened up the narrowed blood vessels. Niacin has a vasodilatory effect on the body. That is why, when taken, it temporarily causes the face to flush.
  • Eat lightly of nutritious food. Mainly eat raw or slowly cooked foods. Raw seeds and nuts help the brain, but eat in moderation. Millet and buckwheat are good. Eat garlic every day (or take capsules).
  • Increase intake of fibre-rich foods (fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, raw nuts, and seeds.)
  • Avoid fatty foods, fried foods, and saturated fats.
  • Ginkgo may help further detirioration of mental capacities; it is the best single herb for this. Blue cohosh, cotu cola, ginseng, blessed thistle, and mullein oil increase brain and memory function.
  • Valerian (taken at bedtime) improves sleep. Melatonin (taken 2 hours or less before bedtime) also does.
  • Here is a special formula for avoiding senility: Mix equal amounts of powdered peppermint, skullcap, Siberian ginseng, woody betony, gotu kola, and kelp. Adults, take up to 12 capsules per day. For acute conditions, 3-4 capsules, 3 times daily.
  • Daily exercising, to the point of breathlessness, is vital to good circulation. But do not overdo! Only go to the point of breathlessness, not beyond. Too much can lead to a hearth attack Acheive ideal body weight.
  • Avoid constipation.
  • Heavy metals must be avoided. Never use aluminium cookware or other aluminium products. Do not use canned goods any more than necessary.
  • Do not smoke, or drink alcohol or coffee.

ENCOURAGEMENT – Th espirit of unselfish labour for others gives depth, stability, and Christ-like loveliness to the character. It brings peace and heppiness to its possessor. Every duty performed, every sacrifice made in the name of Jesus, brings an exceeding great reward. Galatians 1:4.

“I will rejoice over then to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My whole heart and with My whole soul.” Jeremiah 32: 41. God’s plan for all of us, regardless of age, is the same: eternal life to those who will accept Him as Lord and God.
