Infections Linked To Dementia

March 26, 2013

Woman with MugMany people have theorized it, but now a well organized study has strengthened the link between infection and dementia. Ongoing viral infection had an especially high correlation with dementia symptoms.

Common infections (like cold sores and the stomach dwelling H. Pylori) were found to have particularly strong correlations with dementia symptoms.

Dementia is not technically an infectious disease, and all these pathogens have different side-effects, so how are they causing dementia symptoms? It’s been theorized that any chronic infection also causes chronic inflammation, which can affect the major organs (including the brain, hence dementia symptoms). Other studies have suggested that other diseases, like heart disease, are also related to chronic inflammation caused by infection.

For those who have chronic infection (since many of the biggest offenders are considered hard, if not impossible, to 100% eradicate from the body), you can help protect your organs by eating an anti-inflammatory diet—things like brightly colored fruits and veggies (berries and cooked tomato are great), nuts like walnuts, and flaxseed oil. Eating healthy will naturally steer you toward an anti-inflammatory diet, and away from inflammation culprits like fried foods, which create an imbalance of Omega-6 fatty acids.

It’s also important to support your immune system so it can keep the infection down, and be at its best to fight the inflammation. MesoSilver colloidal silver is a great way to support your immune system!
