(NaturalHealth365) Given a diagnosis of only two weeks to live, Rick Panson’s mother went home to live out her few remaining days among familiar surroundings, with her loving family by her side. Having survived two previous strokes, she had suffered another ischemic event, and was suffering terminal vascular dementia and paralysis from the neck down.
Panson brought his mother home to make it easier for his elderly father to be by her side. At that point, she was being fed only by straw and IV and sleeping up to 18 hours a day. In essence, she had been brought home to die. (But, this story has a happy ending)
Dementia cured: When something amazing happened
Through a combination of plant-based healthy diet and the loving devotion of her family, Rick Panson’s mother not only survived well beyond two weeks, but regained much of her mobility and memory for the years she added to her life.

Reversing dementia and overcoming a death sentence
Rick Panson believes the story of his mother’s recovery is one that could be repeated in other families. It takes a great deal of devotion, love and commitment, but he believes the proper nutrition, coupled with loving care, can make the difference in patients. Rick proves that dementia can be reversed – despite what you’ve been told by Western medicine.
Panson admits that his first thought – for bringing her home – was to make his mother more comfortable. While his mother did not recognize family members, he knew that his father would be comforted just staying by her side. But, the idea that she could actually regain enough of her health to enjoy additional months, let alone years, had not really occurred to him.
“She was in a strange place, surrounded by strange people, doing whatever it is they do in a nursing home. And to be home, at least, gave you the opportunity to be in that peaceful setting that she was very much used to,” Panson recalls of the family’s decision. “And she came home. She didn’t even recognize it.”
When your life is on the line: Health advocates and doctors with common sense are essential
Engaging the aid of hospice, he learned from her primary medical provider that she would be taken off of nearly all the medications she had been put on over the years, other than for thyroid replacement, and those used as painkillers or anti-seizure drugs. After all, her doctor reasoned, the other medications were not necessary for someone about to die.
“And maybe taking that toxic load of chemicals away from my mother made a difference,” says Panson. “I looked at some of those medications and I questioned them with a little research as to why she had them. Some of them were very constipating. That’s what bothered me the most. And it didn’t really matter. I didn’t have anything to do with that decision.”

Great nutrition eliminates the symptoms of dementia
Although well-intentioned, Panson’s father had not been mindful of his mother’s diet. As he had slowly taken over the kitchen chores the last several years, he had relied more heavily on processed foods, including packaged desserts.
As time passed and she continued to receive only healthy foods, Panson saw a glimmer of recognition in his mother’s eyes, first when his father would enter the room. Eventually, she recognized other family members and friends. Then, over time, both her memory and mobility returned.
Perseverance is rewarded with remarkable results
From a death sentence to walking down the driveway of her home to greet a neighbor, Panson’s mother has made a remarkable journey. Asked about her recovery from dementia and the additional years that were added to his life, Panson is quick to reveal that he believes her improved mental and physical health should not be attributed only to her improvement in diet.
“I never gave up on my mother being comfortable or maybe a little bit better. And my father never gave up because he didn’t want to lose her,” he explains. “So when you have two determined people who don’t give up, regardless of what the other people are saying, it’s a conviction that says, ‘Well, okay, we’re going to just continue to do what we’re doing.’ And didn’t let anyone distract us from what we wanted to get accomplished.
