I help take care of my mother-in-law who is 62 years old. She has been diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimers. She is very obese, has an unhealthy diet, doesn't drink much water and is taking several medications including one statin drug for cholesterol, 3 blood pressure medications, 2 dementia drugs, an anti-depressant, an asthma medication and a few other drugs that she has to take because of side effects from her other medications. I do not believe that she has dementia/alzheimers and that we have other options than what her doctors tell us - "keep her on the drugs and look for an assisted living home for her". I have read in several places that dehydration, over-medication, depression and high-levels of toxicity from heavy metals can cause dementia like symptoms and I believe this to be true. I've also heard that statin drugs can cause memory problems in people. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows someone in the same situation so I can talk to our family about other options or things we can do without drugs to help her state improve. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
