Of course at that point they said she was fully cooperative. Knowing this was sick and pharmeceutically abusive, we had to bite the bullet as we had brought her there. Needless to say they released her back to us, and we moved her Midwest far away from the Horror hospital, to a regular nursing home. She was first placed in the most severe, final stages floor. Luckily the practitioner we had chose was open to other ideas. Having to give up the Merry Walker ( again who uses these?), she started with her normal walker, but her balance was getting worse and worse, ( Zyprexa side effect). We first implemented 2 daily doses of a product called Calms Forte, it's a baby-dose homeopathic for colic, and crabby babies and had it scheduled for her sundowning times. Seemed to put the sundowning by the clock at rest. But sooner than not, she started having really bad falls, her legs became so rigid. Rigidity, again-big side effect of Zyprexa. Bad fall one night so bad, cracked her head open. Practitioner DC's immediate the Zyprexa and Ativan. We immediately start a product called Nervoheel. And we also start using Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. Afer writing all this a year ago, I encountered so so many pro-drug people on this forum, that could not even tolerate the thought that this might be working for someone. I hate to disappoint them, but it's still working, and my mother no longer lives on the sad pergatory floor, she has been promoted to a floor, still that is secure, but people are more cognitive. It's quite rare for people to move up from the one floor. And as for her baseline behavior compared to a year ago... no swearing, no biting, she is blissful. Nothing like what she was a year ago. It's all documented, She plays bingo now, she participates in sing alongs, and smiles most of the time. Sure, everyonce in awhile she has moments of agitation, that are easily, and I quote easily modified, by a few doses of Rescue Remedy that goes into any beverage she is drinking. You see by the story, where my mother was..and where she is now. The disease is still taking her away, no doubt, but we have been able to control all the bad behaviors, and bad symptoms with to some here almost inate substances. This proves to me, that one has to not always look at the biology of the disease but sometimes the spiritual breakdown before condemning homeopathy as "not viable". To people with this disease, with bad behaviors and symptoms sometimes there is other choices besides doping someone into ( what the horror hospital called cooperative) but what I called a drugged zombie!! Everyone should look at all choices. This truly is a great story of success.

Good for you Coffeesnob!!! for caring about your mother enough not to give up! I wish we had tried Rescue Remedy on my mom. even though she didnt belive in it I did! And now that at 59 I am living with Early Onset AD, I supplement my Namenda & Aricept with a table load of supplements as well as yoga, meditation, exercise, diet modification, & work on the computer based Brain Fitness Program.

thank you. After a year of this whole journey, I look at the success of what we have been doing it is amazing. She is blissful most of the time. She doesn't even swear anymore. And she has maintained her weight, and goes to bed early.

Your much welcome. My Mother never took any supplements in her life. During her worst worst dementia symptoms in the last year, she was at least able to speak, once the wonderful geriatric psyches put her on Zyprexa she only couold make jibberish, she stopped being able to make correct sentences, and had no orientation towards herself at all. We knew this was not a psychotic condition, she did not need to be on antipsychotic meds!!! Plus all the other side effects from the Zyprexa, I am sorry we ever trusted the geriatric psyche drs. How dare them dope up someone into complete zombiness. A year later, she doesn't even swear. More people ought to listen to this story, as I see so many people getting so much meds that do not need to be that medicated its an abuse.

You take it every night before bedtime. I got mine at a health food store, but saw it also in Walgreen's. I wasn't sleeping well, but was afraid to take anything for fear I might not hear my husband if he awoke in the middle of the night and needed me. Melatonin is not a drug and therefor did not drug me down and I felt refreshed and awake the next day. It's worth a shot. I use the 3mg tabs.

My grandmother sounds exactly like many of your Moms, and she lives in NC. My Mom is an only child, I live with her. We brought my GM to our home to visit and realized that there was a big problem thatshe had done a good job of hiding. We knew she was forgetful and has always been contrary, but living with her day to day was a big eye opener. We took her to a neurologist and he diagnosed her, no surprise there. She has been with us 8 months now, and not happy about it at all. She had been taking Ambien for sleep when she was living alone, and started taking it for everything- pain, anxiety, 'nerves', and sleep. We discovered this when we picked her up to visit us in NJ and she had no Ambien, had been up 4 days, and was psychotic. She couldn't understand why the pharmacy wouldn't refill her Rx after only 14 days for a 30 day supply. In desperation, I bought Calms forte and another product by the same company called Nerve tonic. It was a life saver for all of us. She slept, and was able to travel by car calmly (she wont fly- and freaks out in the car- always has) We have also tried many other products by them: headache remedy, leg cramps, indigestion, arnica sport for bruising (from frequent stumbles/falls)All have worked great. Many dissolve under her tongue, which is a plus, because she hates taking pills, and some work in minutes. I'm a believer now.

He had a psychotic episode in Jul05 and was put on Risperdal which made him a lethargic, drooling blob. I consulted a new neuro who immediately took him off Risperdal and suggested Seroquel. The change was immediate! He also told me that those psychotic episodes are usually brought on by a physical condition such as a UTI. When he had an outburst 3 weeks ago, I was forced to call 911. They "abducted" him, tied him to a gurney and took him to the ER where he was given Haldol and Ativan. Never took the restraints off of him, but kept him drugged all day. They convinced me to have him involuntarily admitted to a Gero Psych unit at a local hospital where I was told they would evaluate him and try to find the best meds to keep him functioning as much as possible. Well, that never happened!! he was so scared and angry that he was "combative" (their word) and they responded by keeping him drugged with Ativan. Because of the drugs, they kept him in a diaper and declared him incontinent. He was not able to walk because of the drugs, so they gave him shots of Fragmin in the stomach to prevent blood clots. One day when I was with him, a tear rolled down his cheek and he told me he felt like a "bombie", but I knew what he meant. He started to shut down, refusing to eat or drink. (Surprisingly, that did not seem to concern the staff of this unit!) After much insistence on my part, they did test him and found that he did have a UTI. Then I immediately took him home. He started eating and drinking again, is walking around the house, shopping with me and uses the bathroom. I considered homepathics, but thought I was reaching ... now I am sure I am going to try!!! I am sure glad I stumbled onto this site!!

You can get it at health food stores, Walmart, some CVS's but the best price is at drugstore.com, it is at least 1/2 the price that I've found it at brick and mortar stores. They have a whole line of stuff that my family has tried, all seem to work w/no side effects.

Last night, I realized that she no longer has the post nasal drip that had haunted her for years and comsumed boxes of Claritin, Psueudophed and tissues. As I recall my wife's mother (who died of Alzheimer's had the maddening runny nose and post nasal drip and was forever leaving used tissues lying around, as had my wife until now.

My wife starts chelation with DMSA this week. We've had to wait, since chelation is not advised while the amalgam fillings are removed. Interesting - when talking with the holistic doctor in preparation for chelton, she (the doctor) confirms that my wife has Alzheimer's - no doubt, then posed the question, "but what casues Alzheimer's" Adding, "It's so good we caught it early." I truely n believe the mercury posening from her dental amalgams coupled with an inherited defective chromosone is the casue. As the mercury is removed fro her body, I fully expect her to get better.

We have started with a Homeopathic doctor who has done a bunch of tests not even considered by other doctors and my wife now has improved greatly. One of the interesting discoveries is that my wife exdshibited signs of Euthyroid sick syndrome. Which is not all that uncommon where major diseases are present.

For now she is on a daily medicine schedule of 2gr Alpha Lipoic Acid, 10 gr Lechitin, 400 mg Co-enzime Q-10, 100mg Selenium, 250 mg Magnesium, 500 mg vitamin C and 500 mg vitamin E, 500 mg B-12 and 1mcg of (natural) Armour Thyroid.

My wife now has returned to eating red-meat, which she swore off of becasue it tasted "awfully bitter to her." She is off the anti-reflux medication, as her problem was apparently too little stomach acid, not too much. She is also off the inderal (for parkinsonism tremor and has almost no visible tremor.

Previously diagnosed as Alzheimer's my wife was found to have euthroid sick syndrom, an indication of a major illness ragin in her body. Tried her on Alpha Lipoic acid and saw major improvements. Now have had her tested for heavy metal toxicity and found she has high concentrations of lead and mercury ( major ingredients in almalgam dental fillings. It has taken two months to get an apointment with one of the two biological dentists in the area. It was major time enlightening. My wife has 7 large amalgam fillings that are all cracked, leaking and show signs of corrosion and oxidation along the boundries with the tooth. Also, 3 of the fillings are in contact with gold crowns, which causes electrolosis and even more oxidation. She as her first appointment to begin having the alamgam safely removed. It will take 4-6 weeks. I can't wait for this part to be over, so she can be put on a more aggressive chelating agent and detoxified.

Damn the doctors and or old dentist who are like the three monkeys of justice. I look forward to my wife being well again and shoving the proof in the doctors faces that she does not have alzheimer's and that the missed so much of her symptoms.

We order products from Swansonvitamins.com They've been in business for almost 40 years and have good prices. We are a member with Vitamin World and use their buy one get one free specials.The only times my mother becomes agitated is when I tell her she did something wrong, and since she doesn't remember she gets upset. That is a normal reaction when feeling one is being falsely accused. Keep posting more testimonials. Take care

Bad fall one night so bad, cracked her head open. Practitioner DC's immediate the Zyprexa and Ativan. We immediately start a product called Nervoheel. And we also start using Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. Afer writing all this a year ago, I encountered so so many pro-drug people on this forum, that could not even tolerate the thought that this might be working for someone. I hate to disappoint them, but it's still working, and my mother no longer lives on the sad pergatory floor, she has been promoted to a floor, still that is secure, but people are more cognitive. It's quite rare for people to move up from the one floor. And as for her baseline behavior compared to a year ago... no swearing, no biting, she is blissful. Nothing like what she was a year ago. It's all documented, She plays bingo now, she participates in sing alongs, and smiles most of the time. Sure, everyonce in awhile she has moments of agitation, that are easily, and I quote easily modified, by a few doses of Rescue Remedy that goes into any beverage she is drinking. You see by the story, where my mother was..and where she is now. The disease is still taking her away, no doubt, but we have been able to control all the bad behaviors, and bad symptoms with to some here almost inate substances. This proves to me, that one has to not always look at the biology of the disease but sometimes the spiritual breakdown before condemning homeopathy as "not viable". To people with this disease, with bad behaviors and symptoms sometimes there is other choices besides doping someone into ( what the horror hospital called cooperative) but what I called a drugged zombie!! Everyone should look at all choices. This truly is a great story of success.
