Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disease which leads to mental deterioration. It is a type of dementia that causes memory, thinking and behavioral problems. Symptoms develop slowly and become worse over time. People who get this disease may have trouble remembering things that happened recently or names of people they know, in speaking, reading and writing.
It occurs during middle age or old age. There is no such cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but 5 tips to prevent the disease to some extent are as follows:
Ways To Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
Stay Mentally Active
Try to learn new things that interests you, but you don’t have any idea about; like a foreign language or a musical instrument. Keep yourself engaged in tasks that require good communication and organization. Read books, newspapers.
Do things which will keep the brain active like solving crossword puzzle, number games like scrabble, playing card games. While driving try to take new routes; routes about which you don’t have any idea. Thus by staying mentally active, you can prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Control Blood Pressure
Increased blood pressure leads to Alzheimer’s disease. So by controlling the blood pressure, you can prevent the disease. You can reduce high blood pressure by the following ways: Firstly if you are overweight, reduce your weight by exercising. Take deep breaths several times for 5 minutes at least in the morning and before going to bed at night as it will help to reduce stress and thus lower the blood pressure.
Lower the salt intake and also check the sodium level in processed foods. Have dark chocolates. Avoid coffee and take herbal tea. Include soybean and milk protein in your diet. So by following all these, you can easily lower increased blood pressure and maintain a normal blood pressure level and thus prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Folate And Vitamin B 12
These two vitamins prevent elevated levels of a chemical that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Bananas, oranges, green leafy vegetables contain folate and oily fish are very high in vitamin B 12. So including these foods in your daily diet will prevent or delay the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
Seeds And Oils
have pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds as they contain essential fatty acids, necessary for brain function. Oils- use warm sesame oil as nose drops to get rid of the depression associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Use 3 drops of sesame oil per nostril 2 times every day or you can also take some warm sesame oil, rub it on the top of your head and bottoms of your feet and massage well before going to bed every night.
You can easily add turmeric to your daily diet as the powdered form is widely available in the market. You can have turmeric along with olive oil.
You can also have turmeric powder (2-3 teaspoons) every day 2-3 times along with a glass of water. You can also add pure turmeric powder to potatoes, chicken and other foods.
