An Unbelievable Story About A 82-Year-Old Woman With Dementia Who Regained Her Memory After A Diet Change

Recently, an 82-year-old woman with dementia, who could not recognize her own son miraculously regained her memory after changing her diet.


When his mother’s condition escalated so much that she had to be kept in the hospital for her own safety, Mark Hatzer almost had to come to terms with losing another parent.


82-Year-Old Sylvia had lost her memory as well as parts of her mind. Once, she had even phoned the police accusing the nurse who was caring for her of kidnap.


A change in diet, comprised of high amounts of blueberries and walnuts, proved to have had a powerful impact on Sylvia’s condition whose recipes are currently being shared by the Alzheimer’s Society.


The woman also started eating other healthy foods, such as broccoli, kale, spinach, sunflower seeds, oats, sweet potatoes, green tea, and dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa. All these foods are considered to be beneficial for brain health.

Sylvia and her son devised the diet together after deciding that the medication alone was not enough. After looking into the research, according to which the rates of dementia are significantly lower in Mediterranean countries, they copied a lot of their eating habits.


According to Mirror.co.uk:


'Mark, whose brother Brent also died in 1977, said: “When my mum was in hospital she thought it was a hotel – but the worst one she had ever been in.

'She didn’t recognize me and phoned the police as she thought she’d been kidnapped.

'Since my dad and brother died we have always been a very close little family unit, just me and my mum, so for her to not know who I was was devastating.

'We were a double act that went everywhere together. I despaired and never felt so alone as I had no other family to turn to.

'Overnight we went from a happy family to one in crisis.

'When she left hospital, instead of prescribed medication we thought we’d perhaps try alternative treatment.

'In certain countries, Alzheimer’s is virtually unheard of because of their diet.

'Everyone knows about fish, but there is also blueberries, strawberries, Brazil nuts, and walnuts – these are apparently shaped like a brain to give us a sign that they are good for the brain.

There were also a sluth of cognitive exercises that Mark and his mother would go through together including things such as jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, and meeting people in a variety of social situations. Furthermore, Sylvia would also do physical exercise by using a pedaling device outfitted for her chair.

Mark said, 'It wasn’t an overnight miracle, but after a couple of months she began remembering things like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more alert, more engaged.

'People think that once you get a diagnosis your life is at an end. You will have good and bad days, but it doesn’t have to be the end. For an 82-year-old she does very well, she looks ten years younger, and if you met her, you would not know she had gone through all of this.

'She had to have help with all sorts of things, now she is turning it round. We are living to the older age in this country, but we are not necessarily living healthier.

This story demonstrates how resilient our bodies truly are if given the right environment and/or conditions. The majority of these types of diseases are usually related to diet in the first place. This means that they can be reversed with a proper diet. Some of them are genetic, of course, and you may be a carrier of the gene. However, that isn't a guarantee that it'll become active, as there are things you can do to eliminate the risk. Our health is our most important wealth. We need to realize that we do have a say in everything that concerns our lives and our fate.


In an article named, Strong evidence linking Aluminum to Alzheimer’s, published in The Hippocratic Post website, Exley explained:


“We already know that the aluminium content of brain tissue in late-onset or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is found in age-matched controls. So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminium in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease.

Even higher levels of aluminium have been found in the brains of individuals, diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic (usually late onset) Alzheimer’s disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment (e.g., Camelford) or through their workplace. This means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset, for example, fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed to unusually high levels of aluminium in their everyday lives.”

His most recent study, a work published by the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology in December 2016, named: Aluminium in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease, is among the many studies he and his team have conducted on the subject of aluminum over the years. Nevertheless, this study, in particular, is thought to be of significant value, as it's the first time scientists have measured the level of aluminum in the brain tissue of people diagnosed with familial Alzheimer’s disease.


Their paper demonstrated that the concentrations of aluminum discovered in brain tissue donated by people who died with a diagnosis of a familial AD was the highest level ever measured in human brain tissue.

As Professor Exley wrote:


“We now show that some of the highest levels of aluminium ever measured in human brain tissue are found in individuals who have died with a diagnosis of familial Alzheimer’s disease.

The levels of aluminium in brain tissue from individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease are similar to those recorded in individuals who died of an aluminium-induced encephalopathy while undergoing renal dialysis.”

He also explained that:


“Familial Alzheimer’s disease is an early-onset form of the disease with first symptoms occurring as early as 30 or 40 years of age. It is extremely rare, perhaps 2-3% of all cases of Alzheimer’s disease. Its bases are genetic mutations associated with a protein called amyloid-beta, a protein which has been heavily linked with the cause of all forms of Alzheimer’s disease.

Individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease produce more amyloid beta and the onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are much earlier in life.”

While more and more awareness grows regarding the exact causes of these neurodegenerative brain disorders, we need to do what we can to prevent and even treat them to some extent.

  1. This is such a story of hope. Many people beleive that dietcan really help their health. I have fibromyalgia and really feel that while I have not eradicated the symptoms I have extremely reduced them by following a similar diet to the one described in this article.
