As well as slowing down our skin ageing (external ageing), we can also take steps to slow down cognitive ageing (brain ageing).
Cognitive decline can eventually lead to Dementia, which is a huge issue facing us and the country!
There are around 800,000 people with dementia in the UK, and the disease costs the economy £23 billion a year. By 2040, the number of people affected is expected to double – and the costs are likely to treble.
Sadly at the moment, the diagnosis rate in England is only 44%.
Let’s prevent us developing Dementia!
As part of the Brain Fitness programme, Dr. Anil will screen for the signs and symptoms of Dementia. The package consists of:
Any blood deficiencies will then be corrected and a bespoke medical nutritional plan will be created for you, consisting of supplements that may slow down the rate of brain decline.
If you are over 40 (or have a history of dementia/cardiovascular problems in your family) you should get your cholesterol levels checked regularly. Managing your cholesterol by eating a balanced diet that avoids saturated fats will also help. Dr. Anil will measure a range of blood tests including cholesterol.
If you are over 40 (or have a history of dementia/cardiovascular problems in your family) you should get regular blood pressure checks to ensure it is at recommended levels. Dr.Anil will conduct physical and mental tests which will include blood pressure checks.
Avoid obesity and weight gain by eating healthily and taking exercise – not only will this help reduce your risk of dementia but also your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Check if you are a healthy weight for your height.
Change your lifestyle to incorporate regular exercise in the long term – try and be physically active for at least 30 minutes, five times a week. Dr. Anil will refer you to one of London’s elite personal trainers trained in a “Bio-signature programme”,which will totally transform your body.
Try and stop smoking – this will be of huge benefit to your health in a number of ways as well as reducing your risk of dementia.
Adopt a balanced diet for life. It’s fine to treat yourself to the occasional slice of cake but try and eat healthily and moderate your fat intake most of the time. A Mediterranean style diet may help reduce risk and is relatively easy to follow. Dr. Anil will prescribe “dementia-reducing” supplements as part of your new diet.
Overall, try and lead an active lifestyle that combines physical, social and mental activity. Not only will it help to reduce your risk of dementia, you’ll hopefully enjoy life more as a result!
