Lifestyle Recommendations to Avoid Alzheimer’s

June 21, 2013

People wonder how to avoid Alzheimer’s.  As a follow on to our prior post on diet, we provide below a number of lifestyle recommendations.  We attribute these to the Sanoviv Medical Institute established by Dr. Myron Wentz of USANA.  Alzheimer’s and most other forms of dementia are due to deterioration of the neurological processes in our brain cells.  For optimal brain health (and all around good well-being) we should avoid as much as possible activities that can damage these processes or strain our normal auto-immune capabilities.

  • Reduce toxins in your environment.  If the chemicals sound bad, they are!  Things to avoid exposure to, as much as possible include:  gasoline, paint, solvents, harsh cleaners, bug sprays, heavy metals, air pollution, chemical additives in personal care items, electromagnetic fields (EMFs), hair dyes, drinking from plastic or aluminum cans, chemical-based cleaners, and teflon/non-stick cookware.
  • Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.  While this may seem like a lot, there is evidence that burning the candle at both ends simply leads to a weakened immune system.  If you must get less rest, it’s important to eliminate as many of the other risk factors (bad nutrition, poor environment) in your environment.  Alzheimer’s experts have observed that adequate rest can be valuable to avoiding the onset of the disease.
  • Get regular exercise, whether it’s formal exercise in the gym or being active doing yard work, etc. Exercise, even at short lengths and at low intensity, has a powerful impact on every aspect of your health. Move your body to get the lymphatic system moving which helps with detoxification.
  • Avoid the use of tobacco in any form.
  • Use non-toxic personal care products, such as aluminum-free deodorants.
  • Use only fluoride-free toothpaste
