How to Spot the Signs of Dementia Early and Alzheimer’s Disease

Aside from cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are probably the most feared diseases of older Americans. These impairments of brain functions, including language, memory, perception, personality and cognitive skills, are things that most people want to know how to recognize early, the U.K.’s Mirror reports.

The news agency offered some typical warning signs that your brain isn’t working normally, such as confusion, disorientation in time and place, significant changes in behavior and personality, as well as changes in speech or writing. But did you know that Alzheimer’s most certainly is preventable, with evidence pointing to lifestyle factors, primarily diet, as the driving forces of dementia?

There are many connections between Alzheimer's and dietary-related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, with previous research suggesting diabetics have a doubled risk of developing Alzheimer's disease — tentatively dubbed "type 3 diabetes" in 2005.

That Alzheimer’s is directly related to elevated blood sugar levels is reason enough to try to reset this downhill button with a simple dietary plan called intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting can improve brain function by boosting production of the protein BDNF, which activates brain stem cells to convert into new neurons and triggers other chemicals that promote neural health.

This protein also protects your brain cells from changes associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and helps protect your neuro-muscular system from degradation. Fasting can also boost your level of human growth hormone (aka the “fitness hormone”) production by as much as 1,200 percent for women and 2,000 percent for men.
