A recent study of over 7000 adults (average age 58 years), discovered those with high blood pressure had significantly lower memory and recognition test scores than the people with normal blood pressure.
Several other studies found almost all risk factors for heart attacks are also risk factors for dementia.
Since dementia and heart attacks share almost all of the same risk factors, it is no surprise they are both largely caused by an inflammatory lifestyle.
Lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure and decrease your risk of dementia include:
1. lose weight if overweight
2. eat lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and beans
3. avoid sugared drinks (including fruit juices) and sugar-added foods, red meat, processed meats and fried foods
4. get daily exercise
5. regular chiropractic care
Improve your overall health with a nutritious diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, a positive attitude, and regular chiropractic care.
Remember your best source for everything health is your chiropractor.
Visit your chiropractor regularly and make sure your nervous system is functioning 100%.
