Dementia
Most of us start worrying about dementia after retirement – and that may be too little, too late. Experts say that if you really want to ward off dementia, you need to start taking care of your brain in your 30s and 40s – or even earlier.

“More and more research is suggesting that lifestyle is very important to your brain’shealth,” says Dr. Paul Nussbaum, a neuro-psychologist and an adjunct  associateprofessor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. “If you want to live along, healthy life, then many of us need to start as early as we can.”


So what can you do to beef up your brain – and possibly ward off dementia?
Nussbaum, who recently gave a speech on the topic for the Winter Park (Fla.)
Health Foundation, offers 20 tips that may help.
 
1. Join clubs or organizations that need volunteers. If you start volunteering
now, you won’t feel lost and unneeded after you retire. 
cid:1.792047068@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoocom 2. 
Develop a hobby or two. Hobbies help you develop a robust brain because
you’re trying something new and complex. 
cid:2.792047068@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoocom

Practise writing with your non-dominant hand several minutes everyday.
This will exercise the opposite side of your brain and fire up those neurons.
cid:3.792047068@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
4. 
Take dance lessons. In a study of nearly 500 people, dancing was the only
regular physical activity associated with a significant decrease in the
incidence of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. The people who
danced three or four times a week showed 76 percent less incidence of
dementia than those who danced only once a week or not at all.cid:4.792047068@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
5. 
Need a hobby? Start gardening. Researchers in New Zealand found that, of
1,000 people, those who gardened regularly were less likely to suffer from
dementia! Not only does gardening reduce stress, but gardeners use their
brains to plan gardens; they use visual and spatial reasoning to lay out a
garden.
cid:5.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoocom 
6.
Walking daily can reduce the risk of dementia because cardiovascular health
is important to maintain blood flow to the brain. Or… buy a pedometer and
walk 10,000 steps a day.
cid:6.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com

7. 
Read and write daily. Reading stimulates a wide variety of brain areas that
process and store information. Likewise, writing (not copying) stimulates
many areas of the brain as well. 
cid:7.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoocom 
8. 
Start knitting. Using both hands works both sides of your brain. And it’s
a stress reducer.
cid:8.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
9. 
Learn a new language. Whether it’s a foreign language or sign language,
you are working your brain by making it go back and forth between one
language and the other. A researcher in England found that being bilingual
seemed to delay symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease for four years. And
some research suggests that the earlier a child learns sign language, the
higher his IQ – and people with high IQs are less likely to have dementia.
So start them early.
cid:9.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1yahoo.com 
10. 
Play board games such as Scrabble and Monopoly. Not only are you taxing
your brain, you’re socializing too. Playing solo games, such as solitaire or
online computer brain games can be helpful, but Nussbaum prefers games
that encourage you to socialize too. 
cid:10.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com 
11. 
Take classes throughout your lifetime. Learning produces structural and
chemical changes in the brain, and education appears to help people live
longer. Brain researchers have found that people with advanced degrees
live longer – and if they do have Alzheimer’s, it often becomes apparent
only in the very later stages of the disease.
cid:11.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.comcid:12.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
12. 
Listen to classical music. A growing volume of research suggests that
music may hard wire the brain, building links between the two
hemispheres. Any kind of music may work, but there’s some research
that shows positive effects for classical music, though researchers
don’t understand why.
cid:13.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
13. 
Learn a musical instrument. It may be harder than it was when you
were a kid, but you’ll be developing a dormant part of your brain.
cid:14.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com 
14. 
Travel. When you travel (whether it’s to a distant vacation spot or on
a different route across town), you’re forcing your brain to navigate
a new and complex environment. A study of London taxi drivers found
experienced drivers had larger brains because they have to store lots
of information about locations and how to navigate there.
cid:15.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com 
15. 
Pray. Daily prayer appears to help your immune system. And people
who attend a formal worship service regularly live longer and report
happier, healthier lives.
16. 
Learn to meditate. It’s important for your brain that you learn to shut
out the stresses of everyday life. 
cid:17.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com 
17. 
Get enough sleep. Studies have shown a link between interrupted sleep
and dementia.

18. Eat more foods containing Omega-3 fatty acids: Salmon, sardines,
tuna, ocean trout, mackerel or herring, plus walnuts (which are higher
in omega 3s than salmon) and flaxseed. Flaxseed oil, cod liver oil and
walnut oil are good sources too.
cid:18.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com 
19. 
Eat more fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants in fruits and vegetables
mop up some of the damage caused by free radicals, one of the leading
killers of brain cells.
cid:19.792047069@web77915.mail.sg1.yahoo.com
20. 
Eat at least one meal a day with family and friends. You’ll slow down,
socialize, and research shows you’ll eat healthier food than if you ate
alone or on the go.

Subject: About Dementia – Prevention and Management.
“Dementia” in the age groups of 60’s and 70’s are rarely due to Alzheimer’s, though often gets mislabeled and it is rare in India and among Indians. So, let us analyze the cause of Dementia. Please note various causes that need to be investigated and see if there is a definitive cure and improvement of the condition instead of just management by looking for rehabilitations only. Daily management of a person with dementia is very difficult for family members that will drain all the time and energy of everyone. Neurological and vascular problems that occur due to aging process, metabolic syndromes like diabetes, hypertension and lipid disorders and many genetic defects can be corrected and reversed well with proper nutritional supplements and antioxidants.
Let us first analyze the causes of Dementia and loss of memory in older age groups. When we forget where we parked our car in a parking garage, when we came in our car that is just memory loss due to our age. But if you are searching for your car when came and was dropped by a taxi or bus [and we don’t drive anymore], then that is dementia. Our brain is made up of lots of Fat and Cholesterol, needs constant blood circulation to every area, with constant supply of Oxygen and Glucose. With low oxygen, when I lived in Ladakh at altitudes above 15,000 feet, I noted that my comprehension and memory were poor and get tired on reading any technical book or science fictions as much as we get after strenuous exercise. This will give you an idea of what I am talking about.
1. If you have diabetes, taking Insulin or Sulfanylurea medicines, you need to watch out for the early morning Hypoglycemia that can lead to brain damage and dementia. Many are suggested to take a very-long acting Insulin Glargine etc. at bed time. If, instead, NPH Insulin [cheaper] at bed time is given, it peaks in action at 3 AM and you will end up in early morning hypoglycemia, followed by reactive hyperglycemia at 7 AM. Based on this, you will increase the dose of NPH Insulin and you will then get more Hypoglycemia. NPH is the wrong Insulin to take at bedtime. This is a common mistake. Instead of this, Insulin 70/30 as split dose 2/3 before breakfast and 1/3 before supper is a sensible dosing schedule. Every Diabetic must eat a small snack before going to bed.   
2. Second reason, most common is drug induced. Lack of good sleep is a common problem and people take strong sleeping pills like Tranquilizers and psych meds. This is like hitting a fly with a gun. A simple cup of Milk at bed time, Melatonin 3 mgm and occasional dose of Benadryl 25 mgm or Chlorpheniramine 2 mgm can help. [These two also may affect the heart in the elderly]. Just go to bed and keep lying down, do meditation and read a book. If you feel sleepy during the day, just go to sleep whenever you get sleep. No fixed schedule is needed for this. But, good sleep is important.
3. Next is dehydration, which can cause memory problems, that needs to be corrected. As we age, we do not drink enough water leading to the kidney malfunction. Water is not balanced well, as we pass lots of urine at night. To compensate, we need to drink ½ to 1 cup of water every time we get up at night. Also, we must drink one full cup [8 oz or 250 ml] of water at night before going to bed and also 1 cup of water, as first thing in the morning, before our morning cup of coffee or Tea. Similarly, we must drink water during day also, as juices or watery buttermilk with sugar and salt. Water intake may be restricted due to Cardiac failure and Chronic Renal failure by your physician.
4. The fourth is the most important. This is the circulatory problems, as part of the metabolic syndrome, consisting of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, high Cholesterol, leading to heart disease, blood vessel and nerve problems. We all know and recognize Heart attack, Stroke and poor circulation in the legs. But, more common is the “Little Strokes” – with small thrombus or micro-emboli from the Carotids to the frontal cortex leading to Multi-Infarct Dementia. We will need to get Carotid artery Doppler test, just like doing an EKG, to see the situation even when feeling normal. One Aspirin-a-day may not help much, as this can increase bleeding also.
5. Nutritional problems are the next most important things to attend to.  As we age. Our appetite gets less and we tend to eat lest calories and less varieties. Our food will be just starch and fat. Fewer proteins, fewer fresh vegetables and fruits lead to malnutrition and lack of proteins and vitamins.  These need to be corrected with proper nutritional low calorie diet plans. Vitamin deficiency can lead to muscle weakness, nerve problems and general tiredness. Vitamin C, Folic Acid and B-Complex are needed as also adequate protein intake, unless restricted due to renal problems. A good multi-vitamin supplement and also several antioxidants are very useful.
6. Vitamin B12 is the most important nutrition that we, as Indians, need to consider. As vegetarians, we do not get any Vitamin B12 from any Vegetable product. We get it only from the small amount of Milk and butter we eat as also the meat-eaters from the animal products. As age advances we try to avoid milk, may be from lactose intolerance or fear of fat intake, and meat-eaters also reduce meat and eggs due to Cholesterol, leading to Vitamin B12 deficiency from food intake changes. Besides, problems in stomach and terminal ileum cause problems in absorption of Vitamin B12 which is a complicated process. This B12 deficiency may not show up as anemia as we get enough Folic acid from vegetable sources. But, we may develop B12 deficiency Neuropathies and also dementia like neurological problems. One must get their Serum B12 levels checked and also repeat the same after a course of oral Vitamin B12 supplement. If there is an absorption problem, Injection Vitamin B12 1000 Mcgm once a month will help.
7. Normal aging process is often blamed for several of the health problems we face as we reach our age, including memory-loss. Normal cells deteriorate with aging and get replaced with fibrous scar tissues. However, some of these changes can be slowed or reversed by controlling Diabetes, Hypertension and Lipid problems as also taking good care of our heart and brain with proper nutrition and physical exercise including Yoga and meditation, including change of our eating habits with lots of fresh vegetables and fruits and taking some nutritional supplements, vitamins and anti-oxidants.
How do we prevent or reverse the problems of Dementia and others
How do we prevent these or reverse these conditions is similar to management of heart attack. Proper control and correction of Hypertension, Diabetes, Nutritional Deficiency and Dehydration will help. Once people show early signs of loss of memory, reading lots of books, writing, – like exercise for brain is very important. Good daily physical exercise, Mental Exercise, Yoga, Meditation and such activities will definitely help.
Of all the nutritional supplements and antioxidants, I would like to mention of some very important ones. Everyone is familiar with the advantages of Green Tea, Grape-seed extracts, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Vitamin-E, other Vitamins, Fish oil, Resveratrol, Omega-3 and co-enzyme Q10, but not well documented.
I want to make a special mention here of some I found extremely useful and successful in several individuals. This is Acetyl-L-Carnitine [ALCar] which is a modified Amino acid [Protein] and Alpha-Lipoic Acid [ALA] which is a modified Fatty Acid as nutritional supplement.  I have used ALCar 500 mgm + ALA 300 mgm once daily in several situations. Few incidents, after 3 to 6 months use, where a person had multiple Coronary lesions with chest pain remarkably improved; few cases where repeat nuclear stress test revealed less blockages. The LDL molecules become larger [safer] and cause less coronary obstruction. In patients with Diabetes, the sugar control becomes easy and lowering of A1C levels to near normal with less Diabetic medicines; Hypertension becomes well controlled with less fluctuation and require less medicines.
Since this is nutritional supplement and anti-Oxidant, there should be no problem. It can cause some gas in stomach. So, it needs to be taken in the morning, in empty stomach or after a light breakfast only. In addition, it improves neurological damages in Diabetic Neuropathy as also other similar conditions. Alzheimer’s, Dementia due to other causes and other neuropathies also show improvement. It is said that family members can take this to prevent or postpone such conditions.
Some other good effects of ALCar and ALA:
I tried this on a young patient with Down’s syndrome with remarkable success in that, the person was able to attend regular school and after 6 years, the facial features are slowly changing to normal, except for the mouth and teeth. Two persons with Autism [very important to note] took this regularly and after one year, slowly were showing normal behavior patterns, socializing with friends and classmates and studying well in school. These are not controlled studies but worth trying on others to see if someone can benefit from this. Please read about Acetyl L Carnitine in the internet / Google search sites. If you have friends with family members having Down’s syndrome or Autism, you can recommend these nutritional supplement therapy for a trial; let them first try it for one year, and continue the same for a longer time for full benefits.
So, I strongly believe that in Dementia, giving ALCar 500 mgm + ALA 200 or 300 mgm once daily regularly for few years, taken in the morning, will definitely show improvement and prevent further deterioration of the condition. This is available in India – check with Spencer’s or such big drug stores, but is expensive. In USA and Canada, it is available in all drug stores in different combination or individually. It is also available in GNC stores, Vitamin Shops and through the internet. Several of my relatives and friends are taking them for several years now for Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Coronary heart disease and find them useful. In addition, you can get Vitamin-E, Calcium with Vitamin D3, Coenzyme Q10 and Resveratrol 250 mgm which are useful for muscle and nerves and also for blood vessels. These also are needed to be taken in the morning only.
