Slowing Alzheimer’s Down, Elder Law Attorney, Woodstock, GA


While scientists have not yet been able to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, they have learned enough about it to suggest some ways that the disease can be prevented or slowed down.

Millions of Americans suffer from the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Despite efforts to find a cure to end patients’ suffering, medical scientists have not yet been able to find one. There is still much about the disease that is not understood.

However, scientists have learned enough about how the human body and brain work, that they now understand some ways the disease’s progress can be slowed and perhaps even prevented in the first place.

Recently, a neuroscientist offered some helpful tips in Market Watch in “These simple lifestyle changes can prevent or slow Alzheimer’s,” including:

  • Get Regular Exercise – It is believed that regular moderate exercise can help slow the progress of Alzheimer’s. A mere 2.5 hours of weekly exercise as simple as taking regular 15 minute walks can be helpful.
  • Move Frequently – Long periods of time sitting down will cause the body to go into a metabolic rest state that can ultimately be harmful. It is suggested that whether you are at home or the office, you should get up and move around every half hour or so during the day.
  • Mediterranean Diet – Dietary changes can also be helpful. You should consider eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and legumes. Replacing butter with olive oil is also a good idea. Finally, it is a good idea to use poultry and fish as your main protein sources more often than beef and pork.

Josh Nelson, and his staff, have been amazingly helpful to our family. The ins and outs of nursing homes, the rules and regulations that govern Medicare and Medicaid are daunting and the folks at Nelson Elder Care Law have been informative, responsive, and above all, empathetic. I cannot emphasize enough how their service has taken a weight off of our shoulders especially during a world pandemic that has targeted nursing homes across our country. I highly recommend retaining Josh and his firm!
