Drug-Free Therapy Reduces Alzheimer’s Risk!
It’s the drug of the future
When it comes to taking proactive steps to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, the time to act is now.
One in nine older Americans are already suffering from Alzheimer’s—and the numbers are projected to dramatically increase over the next decade.
And you can’t wait for an Alzheimer’s drug to magically cure this condition. So far, all of them have struck out, and there are no promising candidates in sight.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that researchers have just highlighted two key ways to protect your brain from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Yesterday, I told you about the benefits of exercise for blood sugar control.
In case you missed it, the short version is that it can help remove blood sugar from your bloodstream even if you’re insulin resistant—and its effects can last 24 hours!
Today, I want to highlight yet another remarkable benefit of exercise: It could help protect your brain from Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers tracked the brain health of 4,000 older individuals for three years. They also utilized other techniques to determine the benefits of various lifestyle choices on cognitive outcomes.
Two lifestyle factors stood out.
The first was exercising your body.
They found that something as simple as walking can lower your risk of cognitive decline. But any moderately intense activity—golfing, gardening, or playing with your grandkids—can do the trick.
As I’ve told you before: sit less, move more.
The second lifestyle factor was to exercise your mind by constantly learning new things.
They found that older adults who took part in learning programs had more “robust” cognition.
The research is so strong that the researchers are encouraging doctors to put down the prescription pad and start “social prescribing” instead.
This is a revolutionary term describing an ancient practice: Having patients make lifestyle changes to improve their health instead of taking traditional drugs.
I didn’t realize this type of common-sense medicine had a name, but I guess I’ve been “social prescribing” for decades.
You don’t get the same pharmaceutical kickbacks, but you get a lot more results.
And you can’t put a price on that.
