Alzheimer’s or Dementia?

What is the difference between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

Yesterday ( or maybe last week) I found this article explaining the difference, but I forgot where is it and what they where talking about. Well, all what I know, that I’m experiencing some memory loss… I keep forgetting the names of objects, fruits and vegetables, herbal remedies, people names and even my friends names…

Few weeks ago I was talking to my friend and I told her that my memory is getting bad. She said: “No, you are OK…” And I told her: “No Mary, yesterday I talk to……. my neighbor…… what’s her name…… about you, and I forgot you name……. ” And Mary said: “Yeah, I think you have a problem….. Go to the Doctor, they will tell you what is wrong…..”

Why I will want to go to the Doctor? I know that part of my brain is malfunctioning. After to much chemo and radiation I’m surprise that some parts of my body are functioning… And after all the tests and cat scans the doctor is gonna tell me: “You have Alzheimer’s!!!” And after all the more radiation I’m gonna forget what my name is….

Anyway, I don’t like to call it Alzheimer’s. It is hard to pronounce and hard to remember… I prefer to call it DEMENTIA. Sounds nicer. In Italian language DIMENTICARE means FORGETTING.

So I have DEMENTIA. And I have to do something about it, before I forget what I have… I did some research on Google and You Tube and I found great remedy – COCONUT OIL. They say, that the MCTs in coconut oil break down into ketones, which can be used by brain cells for fuel, The idea is that supplying the brain with some extra fuel might make it work better.EUREKA!!!

And I have my own idea about it.The brain is the most complex thing in Universe. Like a very powerful complicated engine. So imagine, that you have an oil leak in you car and you keep driving and driving and driving…. You car gonna go slower and slower and the engine gonna quit working… Same with the brain. It has to be nourished and lubricated or is gonna die.

Some say, that coconut oil is bad because contains saturated fat. Well, one teaspoon a day is not gonna kill me that fast. Anyway, I prefer to live shorter life with functioning brain, than very long life without it… So I’m gonna take one teaspoon of Organic, Unrefined Coconut Oil once a day and I’m gonna see what happens….

Thank you for visiting.

God bless.

  1. They say an inability to read a clock is a pretty sure sign.
    I hope the coconut oil helps.

    Don’t worry, dear Anna, if you forget me.
    I’ll always remember you.



  2. I came up with a definition to dementia that I have been told by some that have it, it makes perfect sense and along with my own personal definition, it works and is true. Dementia is like being at the top of the food chain. It has so much to it and is complex. But it is at the top. And branched from it or the causes of it include Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Vascular Dementia, Memory Loss, cognitive impairment, drug/alcohol addictions, traumatic brain injury, uncontrolled diabetes and so many more. Dementia is part of the symptoms of all that I mentioned and more. I am a 51 year woman that was probably born with diabetes, but wasn’t diagnosed until I was 25. For up to 25 years I went with high sugar levels uncontrolled because I produced no insulin naturally and none being prescribed. About 10 years ago I was told my brain was shrinking and would develop memory and cognitive issues, now because of the brain needing proper nutrition my brain has shrunk more rapidly causing dementia. I don’t have and may never get Alzheimer’s Disease or any other disease besides the dementia. I feel lucky that I am capable of so much more than even my doctors thought I would be. I know I can not fix the parts of my brain that are dead, but I know from education and research that I can train the parts of my brain we don’t use or explore to be capable of things that I’m being told are miraculous. This is how I know that Dementia is a symptom and Alzheimer’s is one of diseases that cause itI
