The Stress-Alzheimer’s Connection

My mother was a beautiful soul, kind, caring, loving, smart, hard working and a whip smart small business woman who was also highly innovative.

She lived a good happy life, married for over 50 years and passed on peacefully at 89 with her family around her.

However, in her early 80’s dementia set in and the last 5 years of her life she couldn’t speak and was cared for by ‘Angel’ carers in a very special Alzheimer’s Centre.

Growing up, I remember my mother was very prone to being stressed. Her favourite often used phrase was… “I’m up to a thousand!!”

Healing Meditation – Plug-in Tool – Dr Judy Hinwood

Dr. David Perlmutter, a neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, recently released the 5th edition of his incredibly successful book, “Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar — Your Brain’s Silent Killers

There’s still no conventional treatment for Alzheimer’s however, research shows this devastating degenerative neurological disease can be effectively prevented by…

  • lowering sugar exposure
  • increasing exercise
  • improving the quality of your sleep

When we look at simple key ways to manage our stress levels, the above three things we need to do for preventing Alzheimer’s are the same.

Back to my mother… from the time of my first memories of her she loved sweet sugar loaded goodies, rarely exercised and was a poor sleeper.

Scientists tell us there’s a direct relationship between elevations of blood sugar and risk for developing dementia.

Another fascinating study published December 2017 in the journal Neurology:

The American Academy of Neurology develops practice guidelines for neurologists. … The question that was raised, “What should a neurologist do when managing a patient who has mild cognitive impairment which is the first step toward developing Alzheimer’s disease?”

It went through a list of 14 different drugs … What drug should we use? The conclusion from the panel, in their practice guidelines, was…“the only thing we should recommend to patients is a drug called physical exercise.”
