KEEPING DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AT BAY

KEEPING DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AT BAY

The following is a summary of the most recent foray into achieving this goal.  It is based upon a TV interview on the Today Show (February 11, 2012) between Lester Holt and a Professor of Geriatrics from California.  And it says a lot. 
  1. To enhance short and long-term memory: Focus on the topic; Snap a mental picture of the subject matter; Connect it to something else of interest to you. 
  2. Add to your regular diet foods abundant in anti-oxidants (see lists readily available, mainly vegetables, fresh and dried fruits), omega 3 oils (fish, nuts), and whole grains (especially oat and corn).
  3. Obesity promotes dementia.  Regain and maintain a proper weight.
  4. Anxiety promotes dementia.  Don’t be “Outcome Oriented”…”What if…” this or that.  Be “Process Oriented”: control what you can control; and then observe how the issue plays out.  “A little sugar…” in the form of rest and relaxation will help this “medicine go down”.
  5. Exercise, both physical and mental, is vital.  A daily brisk walk is all it takes.  And studying a new language or a musical instrument are potent exercises. 
  6. Humor…and a good laugh…help everything.  See the section on my web-site (www.asthma-drsprecace.com) entitled “A Bit of Whimsey”. 
  7. Make and keep friends, in every sense of that word.  And if you are lucky enough to be married, work on making that person your Pal. 
  8. Heredity is not destiny.  More relevant to destiny is what you do with your body, your mind and your time. 
YOU CAN DO THIS.  If not, at least buy Long-Term Nursing Home Insurance…because you may well be headed there.
