A supplement mix that seems to work

Postby bfacc » Sun Jan 16, 2011 4:17 pm

Here is a quick history and list of supplements we tried with success on my father in law, Fred. I hope it helps someone.
Fred is 84 years old and was suffering from memory loss and confusion. He was on statin medication, blood thinners, and metroprolol, He started to degrade severely and could no longer recognize his home. The doctor agreed to stop the statin and metroprolol and Fred started on the dosages of the supplements below in the group 1 category. He showed improvement to his normal self in about 6 weeks. About 8 months later he again degraded dramatically to the point of not knowing immediate family members. The doctor started him on Namenda which appeared to make matters worse. Fred then started taking the supplements in the group 2 category below while continuing the group 1 supplements. At the same time he stopped taking the Namenda and started Aricept 10mg per day. After a few weeks, improvement was seen and after about 8 weeks he was back to his normal self. As of January 2011 he has gone about 12 months with no significant memory or recognition issues. Since we threw the kitchen sink at him we do not know which of the supplements or combinations are the key to his improvement but the change has been dramatic and sustained so we will continue with the entire battery of supplements.
