Sharing positive life stories about surviving from some diseases, can stimulate other people especially if they suffer from a similar one.
Here you will read a story shared by Mark Hatzer, whose mother Sylvia, an 82-year-old woman, suffered from dementia. She has miraculously got her memory back after changing her diet.
When his mother had to be kept in the hospital because of her condition, Mark almost came to terms with losing another parent. She had lost her memory to that extent that she had even phoned the police and accused the nurse who was caring for her that she is trying to kidnap her.
Other moments that Mark decided to share with the publicity are
– When his mum was in the hospital, she spoke that she is in a hotel – but the worst one she had ever been in.
– He also had the same situations as a nurse, because her mother didn’t recognize him, so she phoned the police as she was afraid that she would be kidnapped. This situation was very strange for him because since his dad and brother died two of them were a very close little family unit, so do not recognize him was really shocking.
– In many situations, they went from a happy family to one in crisis.
When his mother left the hospital, they tried alternative treatment instead of prescribed medication, which was more popular among the people. Looking into the research they found that the rates of dementia are much lower in Mediterranean countries.
The fact that in certain countries Alzheimer’s is virtually unheard, because of their diet encouraged them, so they completely changed in the diet. They were focused on consuming high amounts of blueberries, walnuts, fishes, and strawberries which have had a strong impact on Sylvia’s condition.
Sylvia also began incorporating other health foods, known to be beneficial for brain health including:
– Sunflower seeds,
– Green tea,
– Sweet potatoes
– Dark chocolate
Sylvia’s recipes are now being shared by the Alzheimer’s Society.
Additionally, she practiced some cognitive exercises accompanied by Mark, such as jigsaw puzzles crosswords and meeting people in social situations. Sylvia, also exercised by using a pedaling device outfitted for her chair.
Mark explained that this miracle didn’t happen overnight, but everyone who is ready to do it may count on a longer period. Sylvia began remembering things like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more engaged, more alert, after a couple of months.
The most important message that Mark sent publicly is that people shouldn’t be discouraged when once they get a diagnosis of dementia because the progress of this disease can be stopped, and condition improved.
For his mother, he is happy that she does very well, according to his opinion she looks 10 years younger and there are no any signs that she had gone through all of this.
