Alert and enjoying music entertainment;
One week after daily beet, carrot and celery juice
"Hi! I've been waiting for you." My mom greeted me on Wednesday when I visited her.
My mom was alive, she was alert and she could walk.

Before she began drinking
fresh vegetable juice everyday.
It's never easy to lose a parent.
Since I have been home from the hospital, I have begun to juice. We bought an inexpensive juicer that has power (Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro) and it's easy to clean. Every day, I make vegetable juice to drink; my medicine is whole food. It's working. I have not felt as good as I am feeling in years. My varicose veins are going away!
I started to bring my mom vegetable juice made with beets, carrots and celery. Something wild happened, my mom seemed to wake up. Her cognition has improved. She is able to walk long distances again. Today, I am going to see if she can handle going out for a ride in the car. I never thought she would be able to go out in the car again, now I have a glimmer of hope.
Amazed with the positive changes in my mom, I searched the internet for information that would validate my assumption. I wanted to know if there is scientific data to back up what I was witnessing with beet juice and dementia. I found it. Beet juice does help dementia folks, especially my mom with Lewy Bodies Dementia.
Here's one of the articles that I had found: Beet Juice Boosts Brain Health In Older Adults
More and more I am learning and experiencing first hand the power of whole food as being the best medicine.
Can real food cure all that ails us? Is whole food the best treatment for Lewy Bodies Dementia? If I had my care giving with my mom to do over again, I would have started juicing vegetables a long time ago. I wonder if juicing would have given her way better days when she was living at home with me?
I may never know the answers to my questions, but I do know that whole foods; beets, carrots and celery combined are powerful medicine with NO nasty side effects. It's easy to test for yourself, try it and see how it works for you.
My conclusion: Whole food is the best medicine to all that ails us.
