Preventing Dementia is a lot Easier than you Think

As we all know Dementia is the first stages of Alzheimer’s. The amount of time it takes for someone to go from Dementia to full blown Alzheimer’s varies, but, one can live 4-8 years after diagnosis. One can live for 20 years if they take precautions such as: eating the right foods, taking B vitamins, and omega 3 vitamins. Researcher have found that people with high stress have two and a half times the risk of developing dementia, compared to those with less stress.

In 2014, nearly 36 million people worldwide had Dementia but only 25% had been diagnosed. It’s predicted that in 2031, more than 3 million people over the age of 85 will have Dementia that has progressed to Alzheimer’s. In addition to memory loss, this disease causes financial ruin. The cost of caring for one with Alzheimer’s is about $220 billion a year, making it the most expensive disease.

 

                                 15 Ways to Prevent Dementia

 

  1.  Learn a second, third, or fourth language – Adding another language to your vocabulary can delay the progression of Dementia to Alzheimer’s.

2.  Drink raw fruit and vegetable juices – Drinking fruit and vegetable juices more than 3 times a week will cut the risk of developing Alzheimer’s by 76%.

 

3.  Take a vitamin K supplement – Vitamin K plays a crucial role in anti-aging and may prevent Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

 

4.  Reduce Stress – A study has shown that people who have mild cognitive impairment and high levels of anxiety were 135% more likely to develop Dementia.

 

5.  Exercise Regularly – Such as; walking, dancing, swimming, cycling, and gardening

8.  Eat more fruits – Fruits contain a compound called “fisetin” which fights Dementia and Alzheimer’s. It is found in strawberries, mangos. Fisetin also has anti-inflammatory properties that will stop the onset of Dementia.

 

9.  Meditation – Meditation increases protective tissue in the brain, which, helps seniors feel less stressed and reduces the hormone cortisol, which, increases the risk of developing Dementia.

10.  Eat Fish – Fish is high in Omega 3 fatty acids which control blood clotting, build cell membranes in the brain, protect against heart disease and slows Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

  2. Hello, Carol.

    You have an awesome niche that’s close to me. Your page is simple, easy to read and everything works.

    You could possibly install the Google Translate widget if you like.

    You have collected valuable information that will surely help all of us.

    Dementia is a subject close to me because I love Omega 3. I actually got a mild stroke and Omega Balance has helped me a lot.

    Our diet is the cause of many diseases because we get Omega6 fatty acid too much, Omega3 is too little at our dinner table. Nutritional supplements are needed.

    I have written an article Omega Balance, you can go and see if you like.

    I put this page in my bookmark so that I can track your page.

    I hope this is readable because I use Google Translate to help me.

    Regards Jarmo
