Natural medicines are used by the population, although there is no evidence of their effect. Some of them are:  ginkgo biloba, selegiline, vitamin E, and omega 3 (Brazilian Alzheimer’s Association, 2019). Faith healers are not widely used in Brazil for treating and managing dementia, in some cases, sporadic prayer groups may exist for that aim.

As previously mentioned, traditional medicine is widely used. No studies are yet available/published on its particular use for dementia and its related symptoms.
