this is the first time I have ever posted on a forum in my life, so here goes.
My partner is a holistic therapist and has been doing some reasearch recently on-line into alternative treatments (she suffers from fibromyalgia[I think that is how it is spelt]), one of the areas she has been looking into is nutrition, and how the use of dietry suppliments can be used to treat chronic long tern disorders.
during many hours looking into how different suppliments are used and what studies have been undertaken to quantify their effects. she came across a report into altzheimers' and some other dementia conditions.
According to the report in question in a significant proportion of cases that were looked at, the patients had been mis-diagnosed (by specialists, not just GP's)
A simple blood test revealed, that in these cases the patients in question were not suffering from any dementia related illness but a severe vitamin deficiancy (I think it was either one of the B or D vitamins, it is 3:30am and I cannot remember which). When these patients were treated with a course of these vitamins(albeit at a very high dose) they all went on to make a full recovery.
please pass this on to Terry, and I also hope this may be of some help to other sufferers out-there.
Don't loose hope.
There is a cure out there waiting to be found if this doesn't help.
