Our brains are who we are.
Alzheimer’s is an epidemic. This devastating disease robs us of who we are. Almost everyone has had either a family member or friend suffer from this disease. It’s heart-breaking and financially draining.
Women have twice the risk of men.
If you live to the age of 85 your risk is 50/50. Flip a coin.
There is no currently no viable medical treatment. Early identification is still years away. And the disease can begin 30 years before symptoms of memory loss and cognitive decline present.
So what do you do? Put your head in the sand and pray it doesn’t happen to you?
Alzheimer’s prevention begins today.
Minds at Peace is more than just helping individuals achieve a peace of mind through addiction treatment and stress reduction. It’s also about a mind that is sharp, focused and vibrant. The answer to Alzheimer’s is prevention.
We know what factors lead to Alzheimer’s and only a small part of it is genetics. And even for individuals who carry a high risk gene, prevention, started now can make a difference.
You are never too young or too old to make lifestyle changes to affect the destiny of your brain health.
Take charge of your life today.
Here are the main factors associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s:
High blood sugar and diabetes
Lack of exercise
Making lifestyle changes not only can decrease your risk of Alzheimer’s but these changes can significantly improve the health of your brain today. Many people spend a fortune on going to the gym. But the size of your biceps doesn’t make you who you are. It’s your brain. As important as exercise is to our brain —not just our body— so is sleep, the proper diet, reducing blood sugar, eliminating toxins and using the right supplements.
I’m presenting the latest science on Alzheimer’s along with a prescription for prevention in two upcoming workshops (with more to come). There will be a lot of information presented and it can seem overwhelming. For those ready to commit to better brain health, coaching is available to help you among other things, reduce stress, and develop and maintain a healthy diet. Making those changes will decrease inflammation in your brain and reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s.
Take the first step towards lasting change. Come to one of the upcoming workshops in September. If you are unable to attend, one on one coaching is available to walk you through the steps of Alzheimer’s prevention.
Do this for you. Do this for your family. More detailed information will be coming in my blogs and newsletter. Sign up for the newsletter below. Tell your family and friends, there is hope in prevention.
