Hello

Recently a  family member aged 77 years old had 2 bouts of sudden loss of memory. The doctors diagnosed very high blood pressure but didnt find anything wrong with him.

He takes LEF suplements  like 2 per day, omega-3, super biocurcumin, Endothelial defense, calorie restriction mimetic, ubiquinol 100 mg (one daily). bio pqq and sometimes magnesium caps 500 mg and Reishi.

He had some bouts of  what seemed to be senile dementia in previous years.

What do U think ?

Thanks

Someone known to me had this happen. He had an MRI and had no signs of stroke but did have an area that had a history of brain bleeding because of a fall. Low blood sugar may be involved, because eating something would result in improvement. He later developed moderate to severe vascular dementia.

7-Keto DHEA is an excellent memory supplement to try.

I recommend this supplement stack

http://smart-drugs.net/Get-Smart.htm

I would have him checked out with a neurologist and an MRI first.  Take a printout of the supplement ingredients to your doctor and get his approval.

If all is a go-ahead,  try it for 30 days and please report back here your findings.

This happened to a member of our family twice - 10 years older. She ended up in hospital as she was in a real state. The diagnosis was severe dehydration.

My relative had a transient ischemic attack :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transient_ischemic_attack

"A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a transient episode of neurologic dysfunction caused by ischemia (loss of blood flow) – either focal brain, spinal cord or retinal – without acute infarction (tissue death). TIAs have the same underlying cause as strokes: a disruption of cerebral blood flow (CBF), and are frequently referred to as mini-strokes. TIAs cause the same symptoms associated with stroke, such as contralateral paralysis (opposite side of body from affected brain hemisphere) or sudden weakness or numbness. A TIA may cause sudden dimming or loss of vision (amaurosis fugax), aphasia, slurred speech (dysarthria) and mental confusion. But unlike a stroke, the symptoms of a TIA can resolve within a few minutes or 24 hours. Brain injury may still occur in a TIA lasting only a few minutes. Having a TIA is a risk factor for eventually having a stroke or a silent stroke"
