A dangerous disease is detected only in the elderly. Scientists have proven that by adjusting the diet, you can effectively prevent the development of many diseases, including senile dementia.
Disease of the elderly
Alzheimer’s disease is a type of senile dementia, manifested by total dementia with progressive memory decay and cortical focal disorders. The disease is named for the German physician Alois Alzheimer, who first described it in 1906.
The early stage of dementia often goes unnoticed as it develops gradually. The patient, as a rule, develops forgetfulness, disorientation in a familiar area, and he ceases to follow the passage of time.
Gradually, the disease progresses and its symptoms become more pronounced. It is already difficult for a person to remember what happened to him recently (a day or two ago), he forgets the names of loved ones, does not understand where he is, etc. streets and do not understand where they are going and where they came from.
In the late stage of dementia, an almost complete dependence and passivity develops. Memory impairment becomes significant and physical signs and symptoms become more evident. Symptoms at this stage include a loss of orientation in time and space, difficulty recognizing family and friends, an increased need for help with self-care, difficulty moving around, and behavioral changes that can be aggravated and include aggressiveness.
How to prevent early development of dementia?
For the prevention of dementia, it is very important for older people to be in society, work as best they can, communicate, attend various circles or a choir. To improve memory, you need good sleep and rest.
Walking, exercising, and other light forms of exercise help older people with memory problems by slowing down further memory deterioration.
Disease prevention is also the use of foods rich in vitamins and minerals. This means that your menu must certainly include:
