Are you fearful of developing Alzheimer's? If you are trying to figure out what you can do to prevent dementia. Another study reinforces the need to get moving. If you need help, hypnosis can be a valuable tool.
You may not have had genetic testing. But genes are one of the many risk factors for dementia. A gene called APOE epsilon4 allele (e4 gene) which is present in approximately ten to fifteen percent of people can influence your risk for late-onset Alzheimer's. Stephen Rao, Phd, professor and director of Schey Center for Cognitive Neuromanaging at the Cleveland Clinic was leader of a study of 97 people with the e4 gene which was published in FRONTIERS IN AGING NEUROSCIENCE.
The 18 month study found that the brain scans of people with the e4 gene who exercised moderately a few times a week had far less shrinkage in the hippocampus, an indicator of Alzheimers, than those the gene who were not physically active.
So once again, we find it's time to get up and move. If you need help to start moving and protect your brain from shrinking, hypnosis can help.
