wtea, preventative treatment, chocolate helps


the walks to end alzheimers are all happening soon
across the usa

you can go to the alzheimers association website to find
a team in your area or join a team


you can join and donate to my team the organicgreendoctor team at
this site
we are slowly moving toward reaching our goal this year

last week i wrote about aricepts (donepezil) use to slow
down the progression of alzheimers disease
its the only proven medicine that can help

there are things that you and your kids can do to slow down
or possibly prevent this terrible disease
early on in the disease these things can slow things down for
a while

get adequate sleep
eat a mediterranean diet fish chicken lean meat in moderation
with fruits vegetables and nuts olive oil limited milk products
un processed foods
control your blood pressure
control your cholesterol
control your diabetes
maintain a normal weight
exericise-walking 5 days a week is the easiest and cheapest
form of exercise
if depressed seek treatment through medicine and counseling
avoid a stressful life
stay active mentally-staying on facebook may help but you
need more mental stimulation that what that offers

watch for new changes and treatments that are coming in the

omega 3 adequate vit d folic acid multivitamins coconut oil may
not help but it wont hurt you

these are things you can do now to help
remember these are all things that you should be doing anyway


it seems that dark chocolate may improve memory and may
help some in alzheimers

i have more reasons to eat that chocolate that is given to me
all the time by friends and family
hope it helps
