Towards a Dementia-Free Future: What You Can Do Today

I’ve conducted extensive research into the causes and treatments for dementia. Some doctors believe that the right diet and supplements can “cure” Alzheimer’s. While I’ve observed memory improvement in some of my clients after dietary and supplemental changes, I haven’t seen a complete cure. Nevertheless, these positive changes suggest that some recommendations are worth considering.

Several studies indicate that consuming a teaspoon of olive oil daily can decrease the brain changes associated with Alzheimer’s. This might explain why individuals following a Mediterranean diet tend to experience fewer cases of dementia and also have fewer heart-related issues.

There’s also a noted link between Type 2 diabetes and dementia, with multiple studies suggesting that excessive sugar intake is a contributing factor to dementia. So it’s wise to limit sugary foods and beverages.

Both sunshine and exercise can mitigate dementia risks. A Vitamin D deficiency can manifest symptoms similar to dementia, but they often reverse once the deficiency is addressed. Since it’s possible to overdose on Vitamin D supplements, it’s safer to get about 30 minutes of sunlight daily. Pairing this with activities like walking or gardening can amplify the benefits.

Every year, I participate in Walks to End Alzheimer’s. I invite you to join or contribute to the Alzheimer’s Association this year. While we all hope for a cure, my commitment remains to help you be legally and practically prepared for living with dementia.
