Alzheimer's Disease- HOW TO PREVENT IT!

Updated on April 12, 2015

Is there anything to be done?

Please, for everyone's sake, FORGET what you know and REMEMBER this!

What is Alzheimer's Disease? Who gets it? What can I and those I know do to prevent it?

First, I want to say that though I worked with Alzheimer patients full time for over 10 years, am not a Dr. I do however, have some valuable information. Alzheimer's is a degenerative, progressive disease that impedes, and deteriorates normal brain functions.

Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that attacks the brain and impedes normal function and brain activity.

What are the symptoms?

Memory Loss

Of course memory loss is a symptom. Be careful with that one though, because we ALL forget things. We are talking about a certain type of memory loss. If you forget to pack something for a trip, no matter how important it is, that is NORMAL. Forgetting you are going on a trip, or where you are going, is NOT. Forgetting your car keys on the way out the door is NORMAL. Forgetting what kind of car you have or that you sold your car last week, is NOT. You may forget to brush your teeth. That is no problem, unless you forget what a toothbrush is. I am sure you know the difference by now.

Confusion/Disorientation

Not having any idea where you are, where you live, or being confused about what close family members are still alive or what state they live in is not normal. Something is quite wrong with your brain if you are experiencing that.

It is important that you receive a proper diagnosis and examination from a neurologist, before you do anything!

How to slow down the progression.

Step by step, I will lay out a plan of attack, and I hope you or a loved one will start today.

1. Start taking a (squishy, yellowish, transparent) vitamin E tablet everyday.

2. Increase you water intake.

3. Decrease the amount of canned good and preservatives your consume.

4. Get rid of ALL aluminum utensils, and do not prepare food with anything containing aluminum.

5. Start a new hobby or interest that requires brain function. Use it or loss it. Use a different part of your brain every now and then.

6. Start playing concentration and "memory games". Though it is not harmful, Bingo does not count. Try to memorize new things ie. licence plates, middle names etc.

Your Dr. may say I am wrong, but none of these ideas will hurt you, and they are based on years of my own research.

Get started and then let me know what you think.

      Excellent Hub, well written as all your Work. I believe every thing we can learn about this disease and Dimentia is truly worth your time, my Grandmother and asll her daughters came down with Dimentia and my mom was a great loss to all her children, if we would of only knew more and had taken the time to study it sooner. we might still have her at home. Shes excellent in health, just doesn't remember much on anything that's happening day to day, just whatt happen in first 25 years or so. Every once in a blue moon, sed say your eddie aren't you. Oh! that's me. Thanks so much Mike for your hub. 10 hugs
