It’s amazing how quickly your brain can degenerate. Look at the rise in Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s just to name a few. While many in West Des Moines often assume there is a genetic predisposition to these diseases, research over the last decade has revealed how the brain can be kept in a healthy condition late into a person’s life. How? We will explore those options below, but you may want to start NOW!
It’s important to remember that your health in 10, 20, 30 and even 40 years from now is being determined by what you are or are not doing today. This is why at Vero Chiropractic, we preach the importance of living the healthiest life possible.
A healthy lifestyle is associated with lowering the risk of dementia, while there was no significant real between genetic risk and healthy lifestyle.
Here are a few things you should do to help take care of your brain and reduce your risk of brain degeneration as you age:
Eat Healthy Fats:
Your brain LOVES healthy fats. It actually needs these fats to stay functioning at a high level. Healthy fats include: Omega-3, raw nuts, avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, etc.
Exercising can truly make you smarter! Being active increases your heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to the brain. It also aids in the release of hormones, which provide an excellent environment for the growth of brain cells.
Get Optimal Sleep:
Not only does getting the right amount of sleep make you less crabby, it is vital to a number of brain functions, specifically how your nerves communicate to each other. Your brain is actually very active while you are asleep, helping to clean out pathways and toxins.
We are committed to helping you achieve the life you deserve, which incorporates getting the proper nutrition, being physically active and ensuring you are getting the right amount of sleep. By partnering with us on your health journey, you are taking steps to not only be healthier now, but for your entire lifetime!
