Random Tip Of The Day - *No: 104* - The Best Ways To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease
What We Know And What We Believe
If we (humans and science) knew what the concrete causes of Alzheimers were we would no longer need to worry or fear it. Sadly, we do not know the concrete causes and we do not know the specific genetic factors that cause this horrible disease.
There are things that we can do to reduce the chances or extend our normal mental functions though. These have to be done today though, and each day in some cases. The good news with that is, it also improves are quality of life we are currently in and moving through at present!
Every so often the news will mention some sort of food which could hold the key to illiminating Alzheimers in the future. Studies will show that including this food or supplement in everyday life will reduce the aggressiveness or stop it all together. Nothing is for sure so I would advise you to make an effort to include the mentioned things in your diet. Like I said before, 99.99999% of the time they will improve your quality of life anyway. Eating garbage and hard lard has never been offered by science as a cure for Alzheimers, so why not try the things the news say!?
The following some things that have been highlighted by science to reduce the risks of Alzheimers:
Omega-3/6 Fatty Acids
Broccoli (and dark green leafy vegatables)
Physical Exercise Concerns
Regular exercise leads to a stronger heart as well as better distributed oxygen. A stronger heart performs better when at rest and when at play. This means that larger amounts of oxygen are being distributed around your body if you have a good physical health. Many people, on hearing this think that all is lost as they are not fit. This is not true and it is never too late to start light exercise and progress as and when you are ready.
It is not only better oxygen distribution that a healthy body can lead to. It can also aid detoxing as well as it is not only oxygen that is carried in the blood. Many bodily functions need a strong heart to work properly. If the body cannot get rid of toxins then you are leaving yourself open to a lot of problems if you let this lifestyle persist.
I mainly walk and use my exercise bike. I walk into the town centre and do not use the bus. It takes 15 minutes each way so I manage to get thirty minutes of average exercise. I am not a slow walker either so that is a plus on this.
I use my exercise bike everyday and I normally do 40 minutes on it. The secret I have found is that I keep my mind active while I do it. The main reason in the past that I didn't stick at it was down to becoming bored. So now I put a good TV show on that I know I will like (bad TV is a bad idea) and I get engrossed while I exercise and sort of forget I am doing it. I think I has to be one of my all time best discoveries!!
Mental Exercise Concerns
Keeping the mind active is a good thing. Repetitive task completion (things that were once testing but are now easy) are a bad thing. The repetitive task completion is a little bit like eating rich food. If it is all you are doing (eating) you are going to suffer. If you have varied tasks to complete/a varied diet, it will not be so harmful. In the modern world we live in we are sometimes forced into these positions and the only people that argue against this point are people that don't or never have felt the feeling of being somewhat trapped. This ITSELF is another problem, submission to a way of life. Whether consciously or subconsciously, whether reluctantly or unquestionably (I made that last word up as I couldn't think of a better one) closes options and avenues off that do not allow the mind to exercise and leave it weak and open to such things like Alzheimers over a long term situation. I will also say that Alzheimers has people from many walks of life from many different backgrounds and like their is not one sole thing that causes it.
Crosswords are good for some. Learning a new skill or language for others. Writing 150 words a day with your other hand improves brain functions. Some people play games, strategy game that force you to think I would assume. I myself am a huge Civilization fan. The main goal is to seek out new knowledge and not be happy (or sad and non motivated) to find new skills, games, puzzles and adventures to learn and go on. You can still watch your favourite TV shows, eat your favourite foods. Just know that we are heading into the modern era all the time and new knowledge is crying out to be found.
It is a terriblly cliche thing to say but.... Carpe Diem!!
