Do you have a friend or loved one who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, or another form of dementia?
Do you come from a family history of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, and you worry about whether this cognitive decline may come knocking at your own door?
Sometimes the worst part of dementia is that it’s never just a struggle for the person who has it. This terrible condition impacts the entire family. It is an interpersonal challenge.
The Mind-numbing Reality
Diseases that affect the mind can be especially challenging. For most of us, just thinking about the possibility of dementia makes us uncomfortable or even scared. And for good reason: the data about this disease is not comforting.
Research indicates that 1 in 8 Americans over the age of 60 already show signs of dementia or mild cognitive impairment. Extrapolate the data and it becomes as high as 1 in 4, depending on how long we live.
And dementia comes in many forms. We’re most familiar with Alzheimer’s, which is the most common form, but we can also develop
- Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), caused by protein deposits
- vascular dementia, caused by compromised blood flow to the brain
- frontotemporal dementia, caused by progressive cell degeneration
- dementia associated with Parkinson’s
- and several more
So…is there any good news?
These statistics are sobering, and cognitive decline seems like such a nebulous thing that would be difficult to prevent. But there are other statistics!
Thankfully, researchers are discovering some encouraging news when it comes to diseases of the mind. Medical studies clearly demonstrate there’s actually plenty each of us can do to defeat dementia naturally.
It isn’t a magic pill or some old “weird trick.” It’s a simple set of interconnected elements of healthful lifestyle habits: LifeStart.
These 9 essential tools—natural lifestyle therapies—have been proven over and over again by thorough studies and documentation. It helps you remain in the driver’s seat when it comes to the aging of your mind.
By strategically cultivating these brain-health-inducing habits into your lifestyle, you no longer need to assume that Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia are just the “luck of the draw.”
And even better, the LifeStart program is completely FREE!
So just how powerful are these nine LifeStart strategies? Suppose you are a smoker (thinking of the A for Air). Do you know that data compiled from multiple research studies indicate that a person who smokes is increasing their risk of some form of dementia—Alzheimer’s disease in particular—by at least 70 to 80 percent? Alcohol consumption and marijuana (T for Temperance) also take a significant toll on memory and cognitive function.
And apart from what we should avoid, here are some things we should make sure we do:
Consider the E for exercise. Did you know that exercise actually prevents the shrinkage of your brain with age? In fact, with daily exercise, you can keep your brain functioning just as well or even better than someone much younger than you that does not exercise. Now that’s exciting news!
And related to the S for Sunlight, there have been conclusive studies that clearly linked the deficiency of Vitamin D to a significant risk of developing dementia. (So go ask your doctor for the 25-hydroxy vitamin D test!)
And there’s so much more.
So make the decision to improve your lifestyle and:
- defeat dementia
- avoid or delay the terrifying spiral of declining cognitive function
- achieve higher levels of fitness and well-being, both physically and mentally
And it’s easier and simpler than you might imagine. In fact, it starts by investing only 30 minutes of your time.
Don’t be fooled by the Big Lie
All of us live in a fast-paced world where it’s easy to get sucked into mistakenly thinking we’re just too busy to even consider making smarter lifestyle choices. We succumb to convenience foods, skimp on our sleep, and give way to a sedentary life because we’re so tired and stressed from our hectic schedules.
That’s no recipe for a happy, satisfying life—that’s a recipe for burnout! Not only can it rob you of your health and vitality, it could someday lead you down the terrible road to dementia.
The reality is this: our lifestyle choices are a primary reason as to why Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are occurring today at alarming rates. So let’s do something about it!
