my story revisited #114-mind diet revisited


folks frequently reach out to me wanting to know what they can do to keep from getting alzheimers disease
many times this is triggered by a diagnosis of alzheimers in a loved one
thats what happened in our family 
when our mother and younger brother got diagnosed with it we all started to look at what we were doing healthwise to maybe help slow down the disease

recently someone reached out to me about their family
their spouses mom was recently diagnosed with memory loss and a grandparent had alzheimers now and others in the family had it

my recommendation for the younger family member was to live a healthy life
control blood pressure cholesterol diabetes weight
dont smoke
limit alcohol
get adequate restful sleep
treat anxiety and depression
avoid stress as much as possible
be happy 
meditation or some equivalent eg i use my garden for this
stay active mentally and physically
eat right
the best diet for the brain is
the mind diet

after i told her all this and gave some links they wanted to know more about the mind diet
below i am linking old blogs on the mind diet
they also have links in them to articles on the mind diet and some of the research on the mind diet

you can click on the link below to reach a list of some of my mind diet blogs
go to my blog www.organicgreendoctor.com
if you are on your phone click on the web version
in the right upper side of the page is a search panel or bar
type in mind diet
you will find several blogs with those links on them and info on the mind diet

it will only take a few minutes to read the blogs

the majority if not all neurologists believe that diet plays a role in slowing down the onset of alzheimers disease or maybe in some preventing it
the earlier in life you do this the better

imagine what starting a child on the mind diet will do for their long term health and well being
especially their brain

why wouldnt you do it
click here for my blog 
then type in the search bar the words
mind diet
here is a link where i did it for you
if you could stay on a mind diet all your life you could reduce your risk for developing alzheimers disease by 40+%
it would reduce heart disease stroke diabetes cancer and probably multiple other diseases
why wouldnt you do it
