This Habit TRIGGERS Alzheimer’s
If you’re not thinking about ways to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, you should be.
Deaths from Alzheimer’s disease are on the rise. And it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
But while there is still no cure for this disease, there are steps you can take to make sure you never get it.
And avoiding this one common habit should be at the top of the list.
Here’s how to protect yourself.
If you’re worried about developing Alzheimer’s… you NEED to stop worrying.
In an ironic twist, prolonged stress might be the very thing that gives you the disease.
Researchers analyzed information from about 7,000 people participating in the Copenhagen City Heart Study in the early 90s. As part of this study, the participants answered questions about “vital exhaustion.”
This is essentially what happens when you’re exposed to stress over a long period of time. It can manifest itself as irritability, fatigue, and feeling demoralized.
Researchers followed these people for over 25 years to see if there was a link between this prolonged psychological stress and Alzheimer’s disease.
What they found is that stress raised the risk of Alzheimer’s by as much as 40%.
Those who had less than 10 symptoms of vital exhaustion had a 25% higher risk, while those who had 10-17 symptoms faced a whopping 40% higher risk.
The study didn’t evaluate why the connection was there… just that it was.
But I’ll take over where they left off.
The fact that chronic stress could contribute to Alzheimer’s should not be surprising at allsince studies have even shown that prolong periods of stress can literally shrink your brain.
And brain shrinkage is predictive of dementia.
If you find yourself in a constant state of worry, irritability, and fatigue, you owe it to yourself to take time out.
Start incorporating things into your life that help you destress. Activities, like walking, spending time with friends, or playing on the floor with the grandkids are a good start.
And be sure to take time to just breathe.
Simply taking 20 or so minutes a day to do some focused breathing is by far the easiest way to reduce stress and anxiety.
