Suicide In The Elderly: A Disturbing Trend That Is Under Reported


Suicide In the Elderly:
A Disturbing Trend That Is Under Reported!
 
 (Calgary, AB) An article published by the American Association For Marriage And Family Therapy (AAMFT) titled Suicide In The Elderly looks at the increasing trend of suicides among the elderly.
 
In the United States, older adults make up 12% of the population, but account for 18% of all suicide deaths. This is an alarming statistic, as the elderly are the fastest growing segment of the population, make the issue of later life suicide a major public health priority.
 
In 2002 for example, the annual suicide rate for persons over the age of 65 was 15 per 100,000, this number increases for those aged 75 to 84, with 17 suicides deaths per every 100,000. The number rises even higher for those over age 85.

As the article suggest, "an obstacle faced by mental health professionals and other caregivers in reaching this group is that older adults do not usually seek treatment for mental health problems. As such, family and friends can play an important role in prevention."
 
Depression as opposed to social isolation tends to be more of a contributing factor.
 
According to the article the following are some warning signs that suicidal thoughts may be on the horizon.
 
- Loss of interest in things or activities that are usually found enjoyable
- Cutting back social interaction, self care and grooming
- Breaking medical regimens (such as going off diets, prescriptions)
- Experiencing or expecting a significant personal loss (spouse or other)
- Feeling hopeless and/or worthless
- Putting affairs in order, giving things away or making changes in wills
- Stock piling medications or obtaining other lethal means
- The most significant indicator is an expression of suicidal intent

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND
What we must remember is the loneliness that seniors experience, this is a major issue, the reason can be as simple as a lack of energy or motivation to interact, or lack of sleep can cause serious depression. What we must maintain is our brain activity and this can be achieved through supplementation, one of the most popular products for seniors is our Sweet Dreams Liquid DMFMelatonin it works amazingly. Mental function is heightened through the use of Neurotransmitter Support, this formulation is backed by clinical studies helping to restore short and long term memory losses.

And for stress reduction, the best formulation backed by Duke Medical University double blind studies is our one of a kind 5 year noble root Kava, it reduces stress and helps in social situations.

Retirement: Baby Boomers: "Health Care System Will Fail Us"

Retirement: Baby Boomers:
"Health Care System Will Fail Us"
 

(Calgary, AB) In a recent story aired on CTV's "My Health" on August 18th, 2014  "Nearly all Canadian baby boomers are calling for a pan-Canadian seniors care strategy to address their specific health-care needs, according to a report from the Canadian Medical Association.(CMA)

According to the article, which based its facts on a recent CMA report, "95 per cent of Canadians aged 45 years and over identified the need for a national strategy for seniors care.

The report also found that 81 per cent of these Canadians are concerned with the quality of health care they can expect in the future. As well, 78 per cent are concerned about their ability to afford quality home and long-term care during their retirement."

According to CMA president Dr. Hugo Louis Francescutti "What they're [baby boomers] finding is that the system is not really designed to take care of seniors... so as the population ages, they're concerned that they personally won't have access to the kind of care that they've come to expect."

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND
"Health care concerns for an aging population in Canada and the United States is a major issue. The question remains "what are we going to do with the seniors when they reach retirement age?"

Prevention, staying healthy and active is the best defense. Taking products to fortify the mind and the body lessens the urgency. When people become dependent they become worried and afraid... "who will watch over us?"

For those who were previously active and independent this new reality can be very frightening and depressing.

To keep the mind sharp and to prevent dementia the brain needs to be stimulated, nothing better to do this than Life Choice's Neurotransmitter Support.

In pain? Nothing is better than Life Choice's DMSO, Opti Cal/Mag Complex and DLPA.

In stress, (can't handle the pressure?) Life Choice's Kava Kava is more effective than SSRI's (selective serotonin re uptake inhibitors).

Can't get the adequate nightly sleep requirements?  Life Choice's DMF Melatonin is the sure solution and without side effects."

The Ramifications of Heavy Metals

Recently, we have touched on various aspects of chelation. Now, we would like to clarify just why chelation is so important.

Heavy metal toxicity has a hand in many common diseases, as seen in the chart below. Among those listed are: diabetes, cancer, cirrhosis, a disease similar to Parkinson's, and pulmonary fibrosis.

The following chart is sourced from Medscape. To view the chart, click below:
