Day 41: Alzheimer's prevention

Most of you know this topic is dear to my heart as my mother was diagnosed over a decade ago. Marie's mother had severe dementia and died very early. Her mother's sister also had severe cognitive issues.

Contemplating this line on my mother's side woke me up. I haven't taken the Apoe4 test yet, but am considering it to remind myself to make an extra effort to eat well / sleep / reduce stress – which can be preventative for so many diseases, but especially for neurodegenerative diseases.

Watching my mom do well with intermittent fasting and a huge decrease in sugar / carbs has given me hope. The books and scientists can tell me that THIS WORKS, but I have seen it with my own eyes...

I encourage everyone to think about your future and be empowered to take the reins.
