Let me share with you the 2 healthiest tips you ever heard to avoid Alzheimer's disease. No matter if you're on your 30's, 40's, 50's or 60's. You can start today.
I'm not going to define what is Alzheimer, but it briefly consists in a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. However this is not the worst part of it: it is irreversible. No medicine can't cure it (Chinese Medicine neither) but it might be delayed: better to get Alzheimer at the age of 80s than 60s, right?
Maybe you're thinking this disease only affects the elderly. Well, I'm sorry to tell you that Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Younger people start having symptoms.
Anyway.. what you can do?
Remember... this is just an opinion.
We lose our natural curiosity and passion for learning and exploring the world as we grow older. It usually starts once you graduate college, then you might pass your postgraduates and whatever you do next, it will be somehow related to what you studied initially (e.g If you study law, it is unlikely you will start studying medicine afterwards).
Some people decide not to keep studying anymore: no interest to learn a new language,to start a new part-time degree, nothing.
Basically their curiosity for learning start dying at the time we decide not to learn anymore. As we grow older, it is harder to start over again even if you've a high motivation. Remember that your brain is also a muscle. If you stop training it, then it gets "atrophied" (not literally ;-)).
We know today that walking contributes to avoid or delay the appearance of Alzheimer.
Learning and doing exercise increase the blood flow to the brain. This blood brings nutrients to nourish our neurons. Doing exercise is not enough. Neither playing chess or doing crosswords work separately. Both actions need to be COMBINED.
