I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Mind Matters

Alzheimer’s disease prevention strategies.

Maybe a relative or neighbor has had Alzheimer's and you've witnessed firsthand the devastating effects the disease is capable of: personality changes, confusion, hallucinations, and memory loss to name a few.

Looking to the future, you may feel like dementia and Alzheimer’s are inevitable, but do they have to be? It's true that your risk of developing Alzheimer's increases as you age and there is a genetic component, but there are lifestyle changes you can make to delay or possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease altogether.

While research is ongoing and science continues to reveal the mysteries behind this dreaded disease, there seems to be a connection between a lowered risk of age-related cognitive decline and keeping your body in shape, your diet healthy, and your mind engaged.

Exercise Prevention

It makes sense that physical activity is good for brain health. When you exercise, blood flow to the brain increases, supplying the nutrients and oxygen necessary for optimal functioning and maintaining brain connections. Exercise also reduces blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes, three top risk factors for cardiovascular disease, a disease associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer’s. In fact, 8 out of 10 people with Alzheimer's have cardiovascular disease. So one of the best ways to keep your brain in shape is by keeping your body in shape.

Prevention Diet

Like exercise, it's no surprise diet plays an important role in the health of your mind. What you put in your body either promotes health or detracts from it. A balanced diet that's high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein and low in added sugars, chemicals, and unhealthy fats will reduce your risk of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease and therefore lower your chances of developing Alzheimer’s as well.

Certain foods in particular are known to benefit your brain. Leafy greens (kale, spinach, lettuce, and collards), cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage), foods high in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, flaxseed, sardines, chia seeds, and mackerel), and antioxidants such as resveratrol found in red grapes and red wine all seem to have a protective effect on the health of the brain.

On the other hand, foods that consist of refined carbohydrates (white sugars and flours) and saturated fats may have the opposite effect.

Social and Intellectual Engagement = Brain Prevention

Staying mentally active at every stage in life is another possible way to stave off Alzheimer’s disease. Two ways to do this are through social interactions and mental stimulation, both of which strengthen nerve connections in the brain.

Healthy relationships are not only good for your emotional well-being, but they're also good for your mind. Spend regular quality time interacting face to face with people and you'll help protect yourself from cognitive decline.

Second, engage your mind by reading, doing crossword puzzles, going back to school, playing games, visiting museums, or listening to the radio. In fact, the more you learn and use your mind, the less likely you are to develop Alzheimer’s. Studies show the fewer years of education you have the greater your risk of dementia, but you can overcome this difference by constantly keeping your mind active as you age.

The Future of Prevention

Scientists are continually studying new approaches to Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment. Could the answer lie in hormone treatment or some sort of vaccine? The future looks promising, but in the meantime it's difficult to wait for answers. Do what you can today and look forward to a bright future in which Alzheimer’s is a thing of the past!
