alzheimers disease

We have learned in our earlier posts about Brain Health, Dementia, and Parkinson’s disease that our health should not be taken for granted. We can take care of our physical body giving it the things for Great Health but if we slack on the Brain Healthalzheimers part it could be the killer. This is why livegreaterhealth.com  stresses so much on keeping our whole body healthy from head to toe.

We have posts from our head all the way to our toes and everything in between if you have got a need then we hope to be able to deliver on it. As we are talking about our bodies electronic box or our head the control system of the body and the many diseases that may affect it as we live.

What is Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of Dementia which works on our brain waves and interrupts them. Though aging places the biggest threat of getting Alzheimer’s and that’s something that we can’t stop.

A chronic neurodegenerative disease what that means is it starts slow and continues to get worse over time affecting memory at first. Studies have shown that 60 to 70 percent of Dementia cases are caused by Alzheimers Disease.

Alzheimer’s affects our brain cells and prevents them from doing their job. Like many things in our body that depend on each other to function properly our brain cells depend on one another.

As the cells lose there ability do their jobs they will die to cause irreversible damage to our brain.

What causes Alzheimer’s?

There are many factors in determining what causes Alzheimer’s Disease and people differ in many ways. But what we have found is that increasing age is one of the main factors in Alzheimer’s. As we age past the age of 65 to 70 our chances double.

Other factors that could be the reasons why you might get Alzheimer’s is Genetically through your genes.

Head trauma injuries to the brain tissues can help lead to Alzheimer’s.

Not only head injury but any poor decision you make with your body like…

Eating wrong

Poor sleep habits

Bad heart health

Smoking

Alcohol

most of these factors happen over long periods of time and make it easier to get Alzheimer’s later in life.

  1. Great article, alzheimers has affected so many people that I know and is becoming an issues more and more these days. I think the best advice is eat healthy, live healthy and enjoy the life you have.
    thanks for sharing

    • Thank you for the comment, Linsey. Living healthy is the key to all good health and we can extend our lives by doing the right things. I would love to share this with everybody.

  2. Very informative article. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimers but I hope and pray that researchers will soon find a way to reverse this because this has affected the lives of many people. But just like what you wrote, there is still hope. Thanks again for sharing this.

    • Thanks for the comment, Nathan, researchers at this time looking to reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s. They are making some good progress and have come up with some things that might work. We don’t know if it will but we have hope.

  3. I put Alzheimers disease right up there with cancer. Both of them are scary to me! Can it also be hereditary? No one in my family with it, so was hoping that helps as well.

    • Thank you for commenting on this Leahrae. As far as I have studied there is no connection between Alzheimers and heredity. Now the scientist is still studying this and there are a few exceptions to this.

  4. Hi Fred, really interesting article and it is great you are bringing awareness to this subject as it really is a big killer of our times.

    It’s just astounding that our risks double between the ages of 65 and 70, and as people are living longer these days they have more and more chance of getting it.
    A healthy diet and exercise will always go a long way towards protection of many aging diseases and I think you can still make some difference no matter how late you start.

    I have heard many times that turmeric supplements are great for lowering the risk so many things including Alzheimer’s and there is a lot of research still going on and discoveries being made about it. We know that it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory, which is one of the reasons behind Alzheimer’s and many other diseases, so it makes sense.

    I have both my parents on homemade turmeric paste and they love it and feel great, so I’m hoping this will help protect them.

    Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks, Stefanie, for the comment and yes turmeric just fine to help with this disease. There are many supplements and vitamins our body needs ad all help with it healthy. But I think we need to focus more on brain health to give it an extra boost.
