Beware of polypharmacy in the elderly
When my father was 88, he was hospitalized for dizziness, which occurred after his medication was increased. In the hospital, he was given more medication which made him confused, frightened, and incoherent. Then the doctors transferred him to a nursing home, where he was dirty, crying, begging people to hold his hand, and listed as DNR (Do Not Resuscitate). I convinced the nursing home staff to take him off all medication and put him on my LOVE Diet, an organic lacto-ovo vegetarian diet that excludes toxins and addictions. In three days, my father made such a miraculous recovery, that the nurses on the ward didn't recognize him. When I called to speak to my father, he told me that he was bored and looking for a card game.
