Living with Alzheimers

Lifestyle Recommendations with Alzheimer’s Disease:

•   Reduce lifestyle stressors and establish boundaries for mental well-being

•   Do brain stimulating exercises like crossword puzzles, Sudoku and language learning, as well as physical exercises like ping pong, tennis and dancing that strengthen connections between new brain cells

•   Get enough sleep and incorporate regular times for relaxation; take power naps, if possible

•   Prioritize a good night’s sleep; 8 hours nightly with no electronic distractions starting 1-2 hours prior to bedtime

•   Stay socially active and engaged

•   Stop smoking and avoiding second-hand smoke as much as possible

•   Do at least 30 minutes a day of walking or enjoyable exercise to assist with learning and memory consolidation and consider weight-resistance training to increase BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor)

Dietary Tips and Caveats for Alzheimers:

•   Eat to improve and optimize gut health because the health of the digestive system is intimately connected to brain health

•   Limit or avoid stimulants and potentially neurotoxic compounds like caffeine, alcohol, aspartame and MSG

•   Consume foods that are rich in healthy, anti-inflammatory fats and antioxidants such as avocados, blueberries, coconut oil, walnuts, pastured egg yolks, green leafy vegetables, salmon, and more. Supplement with PaleoReds™ to increase beneficial intake of berries, which have been shown to support brain health

•   Add herbs and spices to your diet such as rosemary, turmeric, holy basil, ginger, and cinnamon

•   Support blood sugar balance by avoiding foods that spike blood sugar such as high-sugar snacks and beverages (includes sodas and fruit juices), refined carbohydrates,  and high fructose corn syrup; avoid excess sugar to prevent accumulation of the toxic by-product, acetaldehyde

•   Aim for 9 servings per day of skin-on fruits and vegetables rich in polyphenols that reduce inflammation.  Eat organic as much as possible to avoid pesticides which have been linked to Alzheimer’s.
