Homeopathic Treatment for Dementia

Homeopathy offers excellent treatment for dementia. Homeopathic medicine for dementia is prepared from naturally occurring substances which are completely safe to use. These medicines should be selected individually for every case. A detailed case taking is necessary for dementia; followed by an analysis and evaluation to finalize the homeopathic prescription. The best homeopathic remedies for dementia are Anacardium Orientale, Baryta Carb, Cannabis Indica, Medorrhinum, Graphites Naturalis, and Kali Phos. Homeopathic medicine for dementia should be taken after consulting a homeopathic physician; and self-medication must be avoided.

What are Dementia and its symptoms?

Dementia is a term used for a group of symptoms arising from various disorders affecting the brain. The primary symptoms of dementia include memory loss and a gradual decrease in the ability to think that is severe enough to interfere with daily life. The other symptoms of dementia include emotional problems, and difficulties in communication, finding words, planning, and solving problems. There is also a change in personality, irritability, anxiety, depression, confusion, hallucinations, social withdrawal, and disorientation. In the early stages of dementia, the person is afflicted by symptoms that are noticeable by those around him. These symptoms cause trouble in daily routine, but the patient is still able to take care of himself. In the later stages of dementia, the patient is unable to take care of himself and needs assistance and supervision most of the time.

Causes of Dementia

Dementia mostly arises from damaged nerve cells in the brain. Persons above 65 years of age and those with a family history of dementia are at a higher risk of developing dementia. Among the various causes of dementia, the most common cause is Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for about 60 -70% of the total cases of dementia. Another major reason for dementia is damage to the blood vessels in the brain. This type of dementia is known as vascular dementia. Other disorders linked to dementia include Huntington’s disease, Creutzfeldt – Jakob disease, Lyme disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Deficiency in vitamin B12, thyroid problems, poisoning with heavy metals like lead, and brain tumors may also cause dementia.

Best Homeopathic Remedies for Dementia

1. Anacardium Orientale – A Top Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia

Anacardium Orientale is among the best homeopathic remedies for dementia. Patients needing Anacardium Orientale have impaired memory and marked forgetfulness. The patient suddenly forgets the names of those around and also forgets things he has recently seen. Forgetfulness makes the person low spirited. There is also a marked absent mindedness and a deficiency of ideas. Homeopathy also uses Anacardium Orientale for the treatment of Alzheimer’s.

2. Baryta Carb – A Homeopathic Remedy for Senile Dementia

Baryta Carb is an excellent homeopathic remedy for senile dementia. In such cases, there is progressing mental weakness. There is forgetfulness while speaking and the mind seems clouded. The patient tends to forget the words that he is about to speak. There is a loss of memory, and when the patient tries to recollect past events, he is unable to do so. Baryta Carb works well for the treatment of dementia in the elderly who may have lost mental function after a stroke.

3. Cannabis Indica – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia with Difficulty in Communication

Cannabis Indica is one of the best homeopathic remedies for dementia in cases where there is difficulty in communication. Cannabis Indica is helpful where a person becomes extremely forgetful while communicating. He forgets the last words spoken by him as well as what he is about to say. He begins to speak a sentence and then suddenly loses the thread of conversation. While writing too, the patient forgets what he intends to write. The mind is foggy, and there is an inability to recall past events. Difficulty in focusing is also experienced.

4. Medorrhinum – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia Where the Patient Forgets Names and Words

Medorrhinum is a suitable homeopathic medicine for dementia where the person forgets names and words. The main symptom that points to the use of Medorrhinum is forgetting the names of friends and familiar people. The patient may not even remember their own name. There is also forgetfulness while writing, both regarding the words that are to be written as well as their spelling. While speaking, the person may forget the appropriate words. During a conversation, the patient may forget what he was asked; and the question has to be repeated. Along with the above symptoms, there are severe mood changes as well. Happiness alternates with sadness. There is also marked irritability over small things.

5. Graphites Naturalis – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia when Indifference Accompanies Memory Loss

Graphites Naturalis is one of the best homeopathic remedies for dementia in cases where indifference accompanies memory loss. The person forgets recent events but remembers past events that occurred at a young age. There is indifference to everything and everybody. Along with this, the patient may be obstinate and moody. Dullness and anxiety, mostly in the mornings, also occur.

6. Kali Phos – A Useful Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia when Prostration Accompanies Memory Loss

Kali Phos is an effective homeopathic medicine for dementia. The main symptom pointing towards the use of Kali Phos is memory loss accompanied by tiredness. There is exhaustion on both mental and physical levels. In such cases, the patient doesn’t recognize his surroundings and is not inclined to speak with others. Sometimes, gloominess, depression, nervousness, and anxiety are also present.

  9. Sheilagh Menzies says:

    Dear Dr Sharma
    My 88 year old mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimers and Dementia. Her husband of 65 years died in May last year and she is increasingly sad and lonely. She does not know why she is in a care home and thinks her mother (with whom she had a bad relationship) has ‘dumped her there’ and does not want her. She thinks her father has just died with whom she was very close (although she points to a photograph of my father when talking of her own). Her higher faculties are still really good – she is articulate and able to read the newspaper and converse. However, she goes on and on about being ‘abandoned’ and just wants to go home. She has lost a lot of weight and is now only just over 37 kilos. She is also involuntarily scratching her face day and night although whilst we were with her she did not. I was a practising homeopath for many years and have tried her on Phos-ac. She responded well to this – became more social, ate well and took an interest in her clothes and surroundings. It did however not hold for more than a few days. Any help you can give me would be gratefully received – as her daughter I feel too emotionally close to necessarily see the picture sufficiently clearly. She is not on any medication other than the standard ones given to all dementia patients and is otherwise fit and well.

  10. Hello,

    I was wondering if you could give me some direction please. My 90 year old dad has vascular dementia. He stopped talking about 4 years ago. He is not on any meds as he would get all the side effects. About 4 1/2 years ago he got dehydrated and entered the hospital. The 3 days he was there they did not get him out of the bed and therefore he could no longer stand let alone walk. He walked 2 miles everyday. He went to rehab and they did not help him walk or stand. In 3 weeks his legs became contorted. He stands on his toes. I had a standing box made and we stand him 4-5 x a week for 30 minutes. He is very alert and understands commands to open mouth,etc. I need help with him getting stronger so he can stand. I use Nutrilite vitamins and Young Living essentials oils on him. He takes grass fed beef liver tablets 3/day along with Quercetin. I would appreciate any help. thank you

After treatment Dr. refused . He said you r internal body can’t accept baby. after listening these words my wife went in depression. At first she used to repeat words in dialogue. I took her to 5-6 Hospitals where she was under treatment, but in vain. The last one was PGI Hospital Chandigarh. dr. said that is is Dementia. She was cured for one year,but no results. Now her condition is not good. She can speak but she doesn’t speak. She doesn’t react while we ask her something. Now do urine​ on bed. Will you please suggest her homeopathic medicine.

  26. My Husband has Dementia, LBD .
    He is 72. He has good days & bad days.
    He gets frustrated when he starts a sentence, but cannot put the right words together. I generally know what he is talking about so I can help him finish. He knows what he wants, difficulty comes when he gets anxious!
    Would love your input & advise for healthiest treatment

  27. Yes, Yes! I will be 69 on the first of May. Looking back I did not see what was coming, but now it is obvious to me and to those around me. My mother had the same problem…but I did not know what to do. I’m grieving for myself now. I cannot walk from one room to another with out forgetting why. The people I work with are constantly telling me I am repeating myself. I AM AFRAID I WILL GET WORSE. My current solution is to intensely focus and repeat myself. It only works part of the time. I am getting more and more depressed with time. Otherwise I am in very good health: I rarely have the need see a doctor. I am female with hardly any other physical problems. I do not take ANY drugs (not even aspirin.) But know I am crying for my own sanity. I am my mothers’ daughter… My father, also deceased, spent his last years sitting in front of a television and constantly changing channels. I used to read a lot, but the frustration of having to read slower to understand what I am reading is frustrating. I am too young to give up on life!

Her memory, fatigue, and depression issue were leading me to fear the worst. I gave her a single dose of ……Kali Phos 30……. this morning and her condition improved dramatically.

    My question is related to potency, and dosage frequency.

    Please guide me with respect to whether this is an appropriate potent and if so what is the dosage frequency you would recommend.

    Thanks in Advance.
