What a hospital stay does to your brain

It’s the urgent warning every single senior needs to see.

And it’s also one you need to share with all your friends and loved ones — because an alarming new report that finds what some common hospital treatments could do to you.

You could suffer permanent BRAIN DAMAGE!

Whether it’s a broken bone, a heart attack, or even something as routine as a hernia operation, any hospital trip for a senior has the potential to turn into a living nightmare.

Up to HALF of all hospitalized seniors suffer a terrifying condition called delirium.

It’s everything you fear, all at once:

  • memory loss
  • hallucinations
  • delusions
  • paranoia, and more.

Now, new research shows that when the delirium fades, you’re not out of the woods.

It can leave behind damage that can come back and haunt you… months or even years later… putting you on a direct path to dementia.

In the new study, seniors who suffered from delirium had bigger dips in brainpower in the month following hospitalization, when compared to folks who went into a hospital and DIDN’T go out of their minds.

Sure, they ALL recovered — but two months later, they still weren’t as sharp or quick as seniors who didn’t have delirium.

It didn’t get any better from there.

Over three years, the hospitalized seniors who didn’t have delirium also didn’t suffer from much cognitive decline.

But the folks who had delirium were off and running towards dementia — and that’s one race nobody wants to win.

The mainstream will tell you they have no clue why delirium has become so common in hospitals these days, but c’mon.

This isn’t rocket science.

The REAL reason delirium has turned into an epidemic is that hospital “care” is the opposite of care. You’re sick and miserable… you can’t sleep… and the food sucks.

Then, on top of all that, you get pumped full of more drugs than your body and mind can handle.

One common brain-scrambling drug, Benadryl, can increase the risk of delirium by 70 percent — yet hospitals STILL routinely give it to seniors.

Anesthesia from surgery can also cause the mind to practically melt, especially since seniors get doses up to 75 percent higher than what they SHOULD get.

Then, when it happens… when you end up suffering delirium because of these drugs… what do they do?

They give you MORE drugs!

Docs dish out dangerous, mind-bending anti-psychotic drugs, despite the fact that they’re proven not to work.

That’s why it’s absolutely critical that you have someone to watch over you when you go into the hospital.

Talk to your spouse. Talk to your kids. Make sure everyone knows the score — and make sure someone can keep guard, check your meds, ask about doses, and raise heck if something isn’t right.
