Fighting Alzheimer’s and Dementia with Diet

22 Aug

As many of you know, my 89-year old mother suffers from dementia and has for the past several years. I’ve watched her and the residents in the memory care facility she lives in suffer through these tragic diseases. Esposita has long been researching the effect diet has on preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. There is lots of evidence to the fact that diet plays a huge role. In fact, as we study more, I can look at my mother’s eating habits during the past 20 years and I am convinced this was a factor.

I subscribe to a cool newsletter on aging that I started getting when my mother started showing signs of dementia. It’s called Silver Planet. Today, I received a newsletter with this excellent article on diet and preventing these two dreaded disease. It matches up perfectly to what Esposita and I have read. I want to share it with you. The author’s name is Laura MacDougall and she is a chef and owner of Home Plate Advantage.
