To diagnose the condition of your friend as alcohol related dementia
is not right. If he had the diagnosis of Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome
8 years back, he must have been drinking heavily for several years now.
You are under the impression that he is sick because he is alcoholic.
As a Homoeopath, I should say that he drinks heavily because he is sick. Alcoholism
is a destructive habit and this destructive tendency is in his constitution or to be more specific, in his genes. To conclude, he is born with destructive tendencies. This must have been evident in all his mental and physical make ups. As friends, you might have observed that this destructive process was manifested through his thoughts, deeds and actions of his past history.
The dementia now you are talking about is again another destructive process originated from his genes. The same destruction is taking place in all his cells, tissues, organs and systems.
Why I am telling this is to make you convinced that any amount of chemical drugs under the banner "anti" like anti psychotic or anti Alzeimer's is not going to help him. They may "control" some of his symptoms like frustration or anxiety
thereby speeding up his -sorry to say -end.
What he should have got from his early childhood or at an early age and what he did not get so far is a genetic and constitutional treatment. All his symptoms were suppressed till date and you friends are even now thinking about suppressive treatment further.
I am not finding fault with you because you do not know that there exists a newer system of treatment called Homoeopathy where his genetics, constitution, individualisation, peculiar personalized symptoms are considered as very important in treatment .
To conclude, you can take your friend to an expert Homoeopathic physician at the earliest. He will enjoy better health than his present state and can survive in a better condition.
You can also contact me by asking a premium follow up question . I can help you to prepare his case by sending a case receiving format on request. Please avoid chemo drugs any more. If he is on them, try to taper them gradually and finally stop them altogether . He will be in a better condition by that.
With Best Wishes,
Dr C. J. Varghese,
