Information on Senility

DescriptionSenility is a disorder involving deterioration in mental functions resulting from changes in brain tissue, usually occuring in older individuals.
Treatment PlanMany health writers through the ages have said that senility does not occur when health is the primary focus of one's life. Senility easily occurs early when one consumes an unhealthy diet and otherwise follows an unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle. The herb most associated with senility is ginkgo, which research shows increases the blood supply to the brain and other vital organs, and acts as a powerful antioxidant, which may slow the aging process. Ginseng and fo ti (he shou wu) are also thought of as herbs to be taken during old age to slow down aging.
