Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive form of dementia. Dementia is a broader term for conditions caused by brain injuries or diseases that negatively affect memory, thinking, and behaviour. These changes interfere with daily living.

The good news about Alzheimer’s is that whilst there is no real evidence you can bring back brain cells (neurons) there is lots you can do right now to make sure you don’t get the accelerated brain shrinkage that leads gradually from memory decline to Alzheimer’s.

Given that brain shrinkage starts, for many, in their 40’s, these prevention steps should be actioned now, not just later in life. My focus is on what actions you can take now, how to test for memory decline and what foods and supplements will help.
