Episode #76 – Looking After Your Brain as You Age
Many women are afraid of deteriorating brain health as they age, this is particularly significant for women who have had a parent with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. This week is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness week so I thought I would talk about what you an do to improve your brain health and reduce your risk of neuro-cognitive diseases.
I share with you 10 things that you can do to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia. The earlier that you address these 10 things the more likely you will remain healthy and alert as you grow older. It is believed that there is a window of opportunity between 40 and 50 where women can prevent the progression of neuro-degeneration.
We know that women are more likely to experience neuro-degeneration than men and now there is research being done to see the role that menopause plays as well. This research is showing that there is a hormonal switch that occurs as oestrogen starts to drop that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing that you an do to protect your brain.
Listen to the entire episode to learn the 10 steps that you can take, you will find that they are very similar to the steps that I often talk about when it comes to navigating menopause with ease.
Please share this episode with another women who you think would benefit from learning more about improving her brain health as she ages. Also let me know in the comments what you are going to do to improve your brain health or ask me any questions that you might have.
