STOP dementia with this easy, 3-step plan
Dementia isn’t a disease you get overnight.
It’s takes years — sometimes decades — to unfold, and, in most cases, you won’t spot the warning signs until it’s too late to do anything about them.
But I’m going to change that.
Today, I’m going to reveal the secret to stopping the disease before you even know it’s there.
And you’re not going to believe how easy it is.
Researchers have nailed three key factors that can delay the onset, slow the progression, and maybe even help you avoid this disease completely.
Entire books will be written about this groundbreaking research in the coming years.
But I’m going to save you time and money and lay it all out for you right here for free:
Step #1: Keep your BP down
Most folks associate hypertension with stroke and heart attack, but high BP can also damage the delicate small blood vessels of the brain over the long-term. That, in turn, can set the stage for dementia.
Just don’t turn to meds for blood pressure control. Some of those drugs can actually CAUSE memory loss. There are better ways to bring your BP down, including weight loss and boosting your potassium and magnesium intake. Hawthorn berry and gingko biloba can also help cut blood pressure without the risks of meds.
Step #2: Get some movement
You don’t have to be Jack LaLanne, carrying out rigorous workouts into your 90s. But a little movement each day is a good way to keep your circulation flowing as smoothly as a mountain creek, so your blood can deliver oxygen and nutrition to your brain.
Just pick something you enjoy and do it at least four or five times a week. Tennis, biking, hiking, golf, and more all count. Gardening and housework are “exercise,” too, if they keep you up and moving. Even a brisk daily walk will do the trick.
Step #3: Train your brain
Your brain needs exercise as much as any other part of your body, and giving it a mental workout can keep your mind sharp. There are brain quizzes that might help, and studies even back some of them. Certainly, you can give them a try (many are free).
But really, the answer isn’t in a game or quiz so much as challenging yourself daily to think, learn, and remember as much as you can. Dial phone numbers from memory instead of using the address book… figure out tips without a calculator… and remember where you parked.
The new study doesn’t go beyond those three tips.
But I will.
Like any other part of your body, your brain needs good nutrition to keep functioning. That means essential omega-3 fatty acids as well as B vitamins, both of which have proven to help protect the brain from the damage that leads to dementia and slow cognitive decline.
