Many forms of Dementia are treatable, and in some cases preventable, just not using means that the A.M.A. or F.D.A. allow. There are common pharmaceuticals that have been around for so long that they are not only universally considered safe, but are no longer protected by patent, and can be manufactured by any pharmaceutical company as a generic brand. The reason these pharmaceuticals are not allowed by the A.M.A. or F.D.A. is monetary interests on part of the pharmaceutical companies. Very little profit can be gained from producing a generic drug. If a drug cannot be patented, there is little economic incentive to produce it. Therefore, the pharmaceutical companies have strongly lobbied to keep these drugs banned in the United States until they can develop similar drugs that can be patented.
I have been told though, that things will only get worse and all that can be done is delay the progress. So it is essentially terminal. At some point her brain functions will cease in their abilities to simply eat. It is crushing for us to watch her slowly deteriorate without being able to do anything about it.

fraeterormus thank you so much for a very informative post, you mention metals being the cause, I agree with that, there is some evidence of aluminum being one, for years people cooked with aluminum pots and pans and of course use aluminum foil, I stooped that years ago and am very much into alternative medicine and am a vegetarian, I have incorporated what I can with my clients, not always an easy thing.
