Dementia & Alzheimer’s — Treatment with Reiki and Crystals

Memory loss is the main symptom, and Alzheimer’s is the most common type of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. It is a progressive disease that worsens over a number of years, usually beginning around the age of 65, but there are cases where the onset of this disease can affect a person in their 40s or 50s.

Vapor form is about 15-30 mins compared to approx. 4 hrs for Ayahuasca.
