About four years ago I was at my neurologist's office getting the results of an MRI of my brain. The doctor reached over and patted me on the knee and said how sorry she was because I had the brain of an eighty year old. I ask her if it was Alzheimer's, and she said no. I ask what else could cause this? And she said,she did not know. Can medications or mild seizures cause this type of brain damage? And is dementia always progressive?

Dementia is considered to be progressive.

Symptoms of dementia can be considered reversible, yet dementia itself progresses. Some causes of dementia are: Injury to the brain caused by tumors, head injury, or strokes. Diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and frontotemporal dementia and Long-term alcohol dependence.

I'm curious as to what you tried and how that worked in reversing the affects ... was it nutritionally based? How are you today?
