Mental health is a major concern in today’s aging population, with Alzheimer’s disease being the number one cause of age-related cognitive decline and the third cause of death in the USA, after heart disease and cancer. Without effective prevention and treatment, it has been estimated that there will be 160 million people suffering from Alzheimer by 2050 in the world, leading to potential bankruptcy of the Medical system. There are, however, good news regarding Alzheimer’s prevention and even reversal.

Recent scientific studies show that lifestyle changes have incredible effects on reversing Alzheimer symptoms. Unlike the disappointing results obtained from pharmacological therapy, personalized programs including exercising the body and brain as well as eating wholesome foods resulted in marked improvement. In fact, at the end of the study, almost all the participants following the lifestyle adjustments proposed by MEND therapy (metabolic enhancement for neurodegeneration) were found to be in the normal range on testing for memory and cognition. Functionally, this amounts to a cure. If you would like to learn more, please refer to this article recently published in Blue Zones.
