A Healthy Lifestyle May Help You Sidestep Alzheimer’s

Of all the chronic diseases associated with aging, Alzheimer’s may be one of the most feared, perhaps more so than cancer. And while modern medicine has few tools to reverse it once it’s taken hold, there are a number of things you can do to try from getting Alzheimer’s, according to Harvard Health. Regular exercise, a Mediterranean diet, adequate sleep, restricted alcohol intake and maintaining social connections and learning new things are all strategies for keeping Alzheimer’s at bay.

As Harvard suggests, you can work on improving your lifestyle a step at a time, beginning with simply replacing one “bad” food with a good one. Since obesity is a major problem today for people of all ages, I recommend beginning with your diet, specifically a ketogenic diet, which can make you feel better almost right away.

Maintaining nutritional ketosis may have health benefits in several diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, autism, migraines, traumatic brain injuries, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, diabetes, cancer and epilepsy. To achieve nutritional ketosis, you need to concentrate on eating a high-quality fat, low-carbohydrate diet.

The key here is HEALTHY fats as the vast majority of fats people eat are unhealthy. Avoid all processed and bottled oil except high-quality olive oils.

Ideally you should have more monounsaturated fats than saturated fats. Limit polyunsaturated to less than 10 percent. Lastly, do not exceed 5 percent of your calories as omega-6 fats. Combined, your omega 6/omega 3 fats should not exceed 10 percent, and the omega 6-to-3 ratio should be below 2.
