    Early precautions/avoidance - prevention

    With a hoped for possiblity of 'putting-off', or PREVENTING the Alzheimer's condition, I have begun exploring any proven eating, lifestyle, medications, etc. You all seem to be in ongoing discussion on the subject - Very Glad That I Am Able To Share Time with You All!!

    Hi Staying_Good_Shape,

    Glad to see you are taking steps for a healthy life and brain. Exercise is by far the best thing you can do - even a 30 minute walk 3-7 times a week is associated with a delay of onset and an increase in brain volume. Apples, grapes, etc. and a Mediterranean diet also may help. And, recent resesarch indicates that the caffeine in 3 cups of coffee a day delays onset and sharpens the brain.

    We'd love to hear about some of the things you are trying out.

    Keep up the good work,

    Hello Dr,
    Thanks for the advice, I have long maintained exercise patterns, AND, recently I began using a product named 'NutriBullet'.

    Received it about month ago, and begun the 'Fruits & Vegetables' meal style.
    Somewhat new to me honestly, but have begun to do meals more & more. Lot-to-learn....
    They mention the Mediter diet in their 'Brain Blast' cook books.
    Learning to recognize 'avocado's & such in the supermarket!

    Thanks again,
    Aubrey Loyd
