Here are the top ten articles for the Alzheimers Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. New Super Foods for Alzheimer's Prevention
A couple of new foods are being studied for their potent possibilities in dementia prevention and you might want to add one of them to your diet.

2. 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.

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. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.”

7. 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:

8. Don’t White Wash Alzheimer’s!
Recently, I received a heartfelt email from a caregiver who felt that I had sometimes white-washed Alzheimer’s disease in my advice to caregivers, making this terminal illness sound spiritual. Here is my response.

9. Alzheimer’s - The Therapeutic Benefits of Writing Memoirs
If Alzheimer’s erases memory, then the patient must compensate for this memory loss. Writing things down relieves the burden of recall! Look at all the positive goals memoir writing will accomplish.

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.
