What do you say to someone who has dementia,how do you communicate to get your message across,i’m doing a course at the moment that includes learning about dementia.

I don”t claim Coconut oil works,but the information is here for anyone to make use of the links and information and make your own minds up,but evidence from sufferers suggests that their are benefits from using it,such as:


The above on coconut oil sounds like to me the brain is using energy source converted to ketones instead of glucose.

I”m not an expert,i”m just gathering information and linking them.

The University Health News website has lots more information on Dementia and links Ketones to slowing down the affects and reversing Dementia.

And to help slow down and reverse Dementia,you could try a ketone diet,this can slow down the symptoms of memory loss and cognitive impairment through out Dementia,according to University Health News.

Also the website goes on to mention that their is a link between blood sugar disorders and the various dementia stages including memory loss and and Alzheimer”s,and Alzheimer’s Disease is similar to Type 3 Diabete’s.

Ketone Diet.

For more information on a Ketone diet goto the website below,very informative on our diet intake.

Ketone’s linked to slowing down Dementia.

As mentioned earlier i’m not an expert,my aim is to provide information and hopefully help.

and Remedy’s

In the
world we live in our Sinuses are heavily bombarded with day to day
living of Chemicals,Allergies,Viruses,Bugs and ourselves by not
drinking enough fluid and not understanding how your sinuses need

I hope to
bring a little insight as to how you can treat your sinuses and take
care of them and hopefully reduce that awful tender and some times
extreme painful feeling.

I seem to
struggle with sinus problems,but it has only started to really affect
me the last 3 years.

With this
year being the worst,and a few visits to the Doctors and some
research on the internet,I’m now starting to understand what care is
needed with Sinuses and problems surrounding them,especially
Sinusitis which is a Viral infection of the Sinuses.

are my Sinuses,and what are they.

Have you
ever felt pain between your eyes just above your nose and if you
apply pressure,it becomes tender.

Sinuses are Cavity’s filled with pockets of air,they can get blocked
up with Mucus,it’s the Mucus that stops you breathing easily and you
end up with that uncomfortable sore and tender feeling.

Mucus is
produced by your Sinuses and is drained through your nose through
small channels,but if you have Sinusitis these channels become
blocked,because the Sinus Linings have become Inflamed and Swollen.


You also
have more Sinus Cavity’s above and around your Cheekbone,which is why
you may get a tender sore feeling underneath the eyes and around your
Jaw and Ear area,and if you have Sinusitis(Viral Infection) this can
be Extremely painful.

If you do
find that you get a lot of pain in your Eyes and at the same time you
have tooth ache and Sensitivity this may be a result of your Sinuses
or Sinusitis that is causing the problems.

How to
Resolve and Cure Sinusitis.

Here are
some solutions to easing the Pain and Discomfort you are feeling.

Some of
the information is from my experience and seems to work as well as
some help from Doctors and The NHS.

2 Inhale
warm vapours(Steam bath,the warmth can soften the mucus,to help
pressure and start the process of thinning and draining
away).Tip(Please be careful if using Hot

you feel the need to add a vapour rub to hot water,be careful of how much,in my experience,i have found just Hot water when left to
cool does the same job,I found a vapour rub irritated the linings of
my sinuses which caused more pain,but useful when rubbed on the chest
or back and under underneath the nose.

3 Flannel
or Towel,if you soak any one of these in hot water and allow to cool
down a little,it works just like the above.

4 Hot
Water Bottle,you may find you cant sleep at night,because of the
pain,especially around the ear,this is where a hot water bottle comes
in handy,because t will comfort you a bit longer than the two above.
Tip (Be careful when filling and closing
the Bottle,allow some space for water to move freely in the bottle).

Bicarbonate of Soda and Salt Remedy to Clear Sinuses.


Steps to
take include:

1 Teaspoon
of Bicarbonate of Soda.

1 Teaspoon
of Salt.

1 Pint of
Boiled Hot Water from the Kettle.

Mix all
these together and leave to cool down,until at least Luke warm.

Wash your
hands when ready.

Cup one of
your hands,and pour a little into it,for example,left hand left
nostril,and use your free hand(Right) to close Right nostril.

And now
sniff with your left hand into your left nostril for at least 3

Repeat with the Right Nostril.

You should

one with almost immediate affect,i found the hot water bottle on a

until i started using the hot water bottle and my favourite which is
the last solution number 5,Bicarbonate of Soda and Salt.

I do this
one every day,and is of great relief.

I have
also found that dry air in offices,Shops and even in the home can dry
out the nose,if left to dry,this can lead to sinus problems,your nose
is like a thermometer,you may have heard the saying about a dogs
nose,your nose is a guide as to what’s happening with your Sinuses.



To stop
the air drying out in the home place a small ceramic or bowl of water
on a radiator,to help stop the air drying out.

Damp and
Mould can irritate your sinuses,so try and be cautious with your
laundry and for Mould clean with a Mould Spray,you can get these from

few attempts to see some results,make sure you have a window open.


Try and
avoid or reduce your dairy foods,as these can irritate your
sinuses,or if you seem to experience sinus problems a lot,try and
avoid dairy altogether,this includes Chocolates,sorry.

with your sinuses,bed time is a time when you may feel the pressure

of gravity to drain the mucus away.

nights,but your sinuses will appreciate it,and at the same time try

Tips on improving your Memory and Stress.

Health & Fitness Posted on Sun, March 15, 2015 18:30:45

Tips on improving your Memory and Stress.

We can sometimes in life be forgetful.

This is normal.

To improve your memory I have learnt over the years many things that help such as the list detailed below:


1 Vitamin C.

Vitamin C can help you and your Body in many ways,we need vitamin C to repair our bodies such as healing wounds,Bowl Movement and it helps to reduce Stress within ourselves.

Vitamin C is a water Soluble Vitamin,this means it’s not stored by the body.

2 B Complex/Vitamin B:

Vitamin B,their are a few of them like B6,B12 and more,they have their own uses on different parts of the body,and memory is one of them.

Vitamin B is a water Soluble vitamin.

Whole living is a very informative website on health.

Here’s a useful link on more about B Complex

3 Lecithin:

You may not have heard of Lecithin,but it does play a part in memory.

Lecithin protects the body’s nerves by coating the ends in a protective layer,which is a fatty acid like substance.

Not Recommended.

If for instance you want to Study and Learn to help you pass an Exam or a Course,then the following
Might come as a surprise.


Sugar can dull your mind,and will give you energy for a short time,but then you feel a decline in sharpness of the mind,this isn’t good,if you are studying.

So if you need to study keep away from sugar,it’s fine to have any other time,in moderation.

You can still have a drink,but best not to have it with sugar.

Meal Times:

Meal times,just as if you were going for a swim,you need to let your body Rest and Digest,before Studying.

Your mind can’t be at its best if your Digestive system is dealing with your Breakfast or Lunch.

So give your self time to rest.


Relaxation/Meditation can have a big impact in helping our minds and bodies.

Deep Relaxation is good for reducing Stress,and improving our breathing,by slowing down the body,you are more able to absorb information better.

The mind works better if their is no stress.

A tip on Basic Relaxation is to sit on a chair,and visualise your parts of the body,and feel each part,such as your feet touching the floor,or your bottom resting on the chair.

And do the same for all parts of your body,just take more notice of everything about your self,your mouth,your eyes and everything that’s a part of you.

Your hands,arms,shoulder and kneck.

Try and do this for 3 minutes each day,once or twice a day,should be Sufficient.

You will notice after about 3-5 days that your breathing will become more smoother and shallower.

Meditation is good for the mind and body.

So regular practice is best.

This will help with memory and concentration.

I hope you have found everything useful in helping you.
