1. Can Diet Prevent Alzheimer’s?
When you consider a lifetime of eating, humans tend to eat a lot of unhealthy compounds produced by a high heat cooking style. Think of your love affair with milk, cheese and backyard barbecues.

2. How a Biceps Curl Helped an Alzheimer’s Patient
In the hope of preventing or at least postponing Alzheimer’s people are urged to exercise. Yet it is worthwhile to consider the brain quality for those currently afflicted with Alzheimer’s who exercise. A trainer shares her experiences with an 88-year old patient.

3. How to Calm Alzheimer’s Agitation
Agitation, a nervous kind of restlessness, afflicts many Alzheimer’s patients – this means their caregivers and family members absorb as well as deal with the fall out. A new study claims Celexa can help. I also present some non-drug alternatives.

4. Cope with Alzheimer’s and Holiday Stress Combined
The holidays are stressful for people who are in peak performance. For people afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers the holiday season might seem overwhelmingly difficult to navigate. Here’s how to cope:

5. Subjective Cognitive Decline
An emerging field of research in Alzheimer’s is centered on the personal reporting of the patient regarding his own cognitive impairment known as “subjective cognitive decline.”

6. Feed Your Brain
A new study published in the Journal Neurology links Trans Fats to brain shrinkage. The study also emphasized that people whose diets are rich in vitamins C, E, B and D, have larger brains than people with diets low in these nutrients.

7. Don’t Stress About Mid-Life Stress
A Swedish study which has followed 800 women since 1968 has found a link between mid-life stress in women and the increased risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease. Stressors like divorce, death of a loved one and caregiving tend to overwhelm women in midlife. The same probably holds true for men.

8. Living in the Moment with Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s is a disease about letting go of resentment and anger. You get a fresh start every moment. We can all learn to live in the moment.

9. Vitamin D3 and Curcumin Clear Amyloid-Beta
UCLA academic researchers are closer to explaining how vitamin D3 may help the body rid the brain of amyloid beta which is found in the plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease.

10. How to Cope with the Boredom of Alzheimer’s
When Alzheimer’s patients are bored, they will engage in behavior patterns that are described by geriatric psychiatrists as problematic. We need to be prepared with daily positive and motivating activities. Here are some suggestions to restore dignity and good humor for both caregiver and patient.
