Your best bet for avoiding Alzheimer’s (and other diseases) is to take the following steps:

  • Avoid sugar and refined fructose: Keep your sugar and fructose below 25 grams each day. If you have insulin-resistance or any other related health problems, keep it below 15 grams.
  • Avoid gluten and casein: This means avoiding or limiting consumption of wheat and pasteurized dairy, but not fat made from dairy such as yogurt and butter. Research shows that gluten can pass through the blood-brain barrier, which sensitizes the immune system and promotes inflammation, playing a role in Alzheimer’s.
  • Eat a diet rich in folate: Vegetables are the best source of folates. Avoid supplements, which are inferior synthetic versions of folates.
  • Increase healthy fat consumption: The brain-healthy fats you should be eating more of are organic butter, olives, coconut oil, organic virgin olive oil, free range eggs, avocados, pecans, macadamia nuts, and wild-caught salmon.
  • Eat plenty of animal-based omega-3 fats: This include wild-caught fish, krill oil, and fish oil supplements.
  • Eat blueberries: Although all berries are healthy, blueberries have high antioxidant and anthocyanin content, which are known to help guard against neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
  • Avoid flu vaccinations: These contain mercury and aluminum, both of which are known neuro-toxins.
  • Remove amalgam fillings: If you still have those silver fillings in your teeth, have them removed. These are typically 50 percent mercury by weight and release micro-particles of mercury into your mouth each time you chew.
  • Get your vitamin D on: There have been studies showing a strong link between low levels of vitamin D and Alzheimer’s patients. Vitamin D has both immune-boosting properties and is naturally anti-inflammatory. Get safe sun exposure each day or take a good quality vitamin D supplement if you live in an area with little sunlight.
  • Get Regular Exercise: Studies have suggested that exercise triggers a change in the way that amyloid protein is metabolized, slowing the onset as well as the progression of Alzheimer’s. Be sure to get 30 minutes of moderate exercise at least five days each week.

Don’t forget to challenge your mind daily. Mental stimulation, whether it is learning a new game, a new language, or learning a new musical instrument, can help to build the brain, making it less susceptible to the lesions that are characteristic of Alzheimer’s.
