The three hardest words for a doc are “I don’t know” – and you won’t believe the kinds of stunts they’ll pull rather than say it out loud.
They’ll send you out for tests you don’t need… bring you in for followups that won’t matter… and prescribe drugs that don’t work.
Case in point: Dementia.
New research reveals how docs are recklessly pumping dementia patients full of dangerous meds they shouldn’t be taking.
That not only can lead to horrific consequences, including dangerous or even deadly side effects…
It can also mean these folks DON’T get the crucial help they need when it matters most!
So today, allow me to step in and give you the THREE ACTIONS anyone should take when they or a loved one are diagnosed with dementia.
How dementia patients end up on the WRONG meds
The new study finds that a shocking three out of four dementia patients are given meds that could HURT them.
They get antidepressants, for example, at TRIPLE the rate of the general public… and while docs might say it’s because dementia patients often show signs of depression, the reality in many cases what looks like depression is really a symptom of the Alzheimer’s.
And the drugs WON’T help.
These vulnerable patients are also wrongly given:
- Painkillers including the opioids that can lead to addiction and overdose
- Antipsychotics, which have been linked to death in dementia patients
- Sedatives that can leave them dangerously unsteady
- Other inappropriate meds including anti-epileptic drugs, anti-anxiety meds and more
These drugs not only don’t help… but can make matters worse, with side effects including falls, which can lead to injury and death.
If you have a loved one who’s been battling dementia for some time, go over their prescriptions with the doctor to ensure everything’s on the up-and-up and have anything unnecessary eliminated.
But if you or a loved one is newly or recently diagnosed with dementia… especially in the early stages… there’s something else you can do.
There are THREE ACTIONS you can take that just might help turn this condition around!
ACTION 1: Don’t ADD drugs.
Many cases of cognitive decline and dementia could actually be drug side effects – so before you do anything else, talk to your doc about removing as many drugs as safely possible to see if there is improvement.
ACTION 2: Do a diet makeover.
Eliminate all potential sources of toxins, which means zero processed or refined foods, and nothing with chemical colors, preservatives, flavoring agents, etc. And definitely avoid gluten.
Get as back to basics as possible and see if there’s any improvement over 4-6 weeks.
ACTION 3: Get tested for mercury.
As Health Revelations know, long-term exposure to mercury could be a key factor in Alzheimer’s disease – but quick and thorough detox can often lead to dramatic improvements.
The Mercury Tri-Test from Quicksilver Scientific can give you a quick look at your levels of this brain-rotting metal. If it turns out your mercury levels are high, natural therapies including METAL-X-SYNERGY and glutathione can push some of it out… but if they’re very high, you may need more aggressive treatment.
Work closely with a doctor who practices integrative or functional medicine for complete testing, treatment and personalized care.
