Dr. Oz gave some great advice for early detection of Alzheimer’s and new ways to treat Alzheimer’s.
Is it hard for you to find words when you are trying to express yourself? Do you misplace things often? If so, these may be early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease. Here is a quick memory test. Look at this list of words briefly, step away for a few moments, and try to recall the list of words:
– Teddy Bear
– Palm Tree
If you were able to remember and recall 6-8 of the words then you are a memory master (Excellent!). If you could only remember 4-6 of the words, then your memory needs some work. If you can only recall 1-4 of the words, then your memory is a big concern.
Here are Dr. Oz’s tips to help fight off Alzheimer’s Disease and to slow it down:
1. Exercise every day, especially aerobics is helpful. Dr. Oz loves dancing!
2. Work out your mind – jigsaw puzzles and crossword puzzles are great.
3. Eat a green, healthy diet (similar to a heart healthy diet).
Dr. Oz even gave a list of foods that may help people with Alzheimer’s Disease or those who have a high risk of developing it: olive oil, vitamin b12, and folic acid all make the list, and the top food to limit Alzheimer’s Disease is curry! This is why it is far less common in India. In fact, studies have even shown that people who eat 2 servings of curry a week perform better on memory tests.
