15 Secrets to a Sharper Mind

What causes Alzheimer's? And is there something you can do to reduce your risk?

Alzheimer's is one of the most feared and complex diseases around. But, what actually causes this disease and how will you know whether it's just age related memory loss or if you're showing the first signs of Alzheimer's?
 
The biggest challenge with Alzheimer's is it can take several years – up to 10 years – before you start to show the first signs of the disease.
 
And then when early signs start to show, they're easily mistaken for normal changes due to the ageing process.
 
So let's look at some of the causes of Alzheimer's and what you can do to decrease your risk of developing the disease... 
 
Alzheimer's causes the brain to shrink over time. The nerve cells actually die off leaving you with less brain tissue.
 
Scientists can't put their finger on just one particular culprit for this cell death, but through individual studies, they've found a number of potential causes. These involve anything that may build protein plaque up in the brain – a major cause of brain cell death. 
 
But is there anything you can do?
 
Some of the risk factors are unavoidable, like gender, family history and age. You have a bigger risk of getting Alzheimer's the older you get, if you're female and if you have the disease in the family.
 
But many of the culprits that may cause Alzheimer's are certainly avoidable. And that's the good news...
 
You CAN do something to help prevent and slow Alzheimer's… 
 
Much of this book is devoted to showing you simple and natural ways to help prevent and slow down the loss of brain cells linked to Alzheimer's.
 
In summary, some of the key issues you should pay attention to in your quest to keep Alzheimer's at bay include:
 
1.    Keeping your cholesterol and blood sugar under control
2.    Addressing vitamin deficiencies
3.    Opting for bio-identical hormone therapy
4.    Investigating drug interactions (the side-effects of mixing different medications together)
5.    Staying away from genetically modified foods
6.    Exercising daily
7.    Limiting your alcohol intake
8.    Getting enough sleep
9.    Quitting smoking
10. And, avoiding obesity and type II diabetes

Don't leave it to chance and wonder if you did enough to avoid Alzheimer's later in life. Take action today, know the risk-factors discussed in this book and make simple changes to your lifestyle for a brighter and healthier future.
