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.

    Hi my mother is 93 and not taking any Rx drugs for her dementia. We are currently only giving her a protocol of Ivermectin, which she tolerates well. The only issue we’ve been having is that she wants to sleep during the day and she’s up at night thinking she needs to do some there’re or do something.

    We live in Springfield, IL which is about 90 minutes from St Louis, MO. Do you have any homeopathic doctors you can recommend we use? I am strongly against big pharma and we won’t give her Rx drugs. I would GREATLY appreciate compassion and any help/direction you can provide. Thank you! Julia

  3. Teresa Bergman says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma, my husband suffers from Parkinson’s but long before he had symptoms of PD he had anxiety that he went to counseling for. He remembers things from the past that I don’t remember, but can’t remember what he just said a minute ago. He also suffers from indifference. When asked a question he usually responds with, “I guess” or “probably” or “I don’t think so.” Very seldom yes or no. But even worse, he doesn’t seem to care about much of anything being “okay, I guess” with everything. He is getting weaker mentally as well as physically. I have given him supplements to keep him off the carbadopa/levadopa (he takes only 1/2 pill AM and 1/2 pill PM) by giving him Vit B-1, B-6, Taurine, Tyrosine, Vit C, D, B12, Ginko, Coq-10, zinc, potassium and magnesium. I was giving him Mucuna, but it didn’t seem to help and made him feel sick. He has all the symptoms listed above EXCEPT irritability.
    Do you think one of these supplements may help him?

  12. Hello, my mother is 81 and in very good physical condition. She has been having difficulty finding her words for things and has been not going to church because she doesn’t want people to realize what is going on with her. She is not disoriented in any way and functions otherwise fully, is not getting lost or forgetting how to do things, etc. She has no memory problems. She hikes, walks and does strenuous outdoor work in their yard. I was wondering about the use of Medhorrhinum vs. Anacardium for what may be becoming a problem with word searching. Thanks!

Another marked symptom is that she often hallucinates that some one is there standing or hiding trying to steal flowers from her garden or her belongings.

  17. Mohan Suryawanshi says:

    Dear Doctor,
    My mother is about 80 plus years of age. She does every daily activity perfectly. Like getting up early morning, brushing teeths, going to washrooms, bathing on time. She only remembers her child hood stories and people from that time. The only problem she forget immediately after two hours that she just had lunch and ask for the food. This does not happen for the dinner. She gets very angry if tried to convince her. Kindly help overcome this problem.
    My email.

    Mohan Suryawanshi
