Reading Always, 5 tips to prevent and treat symptoms of Alzheimer's. More than five million people have Alzheimer's disease and affects more than 10 million women who work as primary caregivers, advocates and caregivers. Alzheimer's currently seventh leading cause of mortality and mortality will continue to rise. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, in which the symptoms gradually worsen over time and currently there is no cure. Recent studies that show treatment that can temporarily slow worsening of symptoms and improve quality of life for both those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

Unfortunately there is no obvious preventive strategy against Alzheimer's, but recent studies do show a certain food, diet and lifestyle that can be therapeutic to treat Alzheimer's disease and contribute to the prevention of this disease.

Here are 5 tips that you can do to help prevent and even treat Alzheimer's symptoms:

1. Eating a Mediterranean diet
The researchers found that people who regularly eat a Mediterranean diet 38 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. A Mediterranean diet rich in nuts, healthy fats (from salad dressing, avocado), tomatoes, fish, vegetables, and dark leafy vegetables and fruits. Mediterranean diet is also known for his low red meat, organ meats, butter and high fat milk.

2. Quit smoking
A recent study in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that smoking is directly associated with a dramatic increase in dementias later in life. The study found that those who reported smoking two packs of cigarettes a day had 100% greater risk of diagnosis of dementia than non-smokers.

3. Eat celery and green peppers
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign looked at the effects of luteolin on mouse brain, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Luteolin, found in celery and green peppers, was found to reduce inflammation of the brain caused by Alzheimer's and can reduce the symptoms of memory loss.

4. Drinking coffee
European Journal of Neurology found that those with increased caffeine intake had a significantly lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease than those with little or no caffeine. Another study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that caffeine levels were significantly lower the abnormal proteins associated with Alzheimer's disease and 50 percent reduction in the levels of beta amyloid, a sticky substance to form clumps of plaque in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. This means that this study found that caffeine may be important in preventing Alzheimer's, but it actually can be a therapeutic treatment for those already diagnosed with the disease. This is a great development! It is also a great excuse to continue your daily latte habit.

5. Exercise (Sports)
Several studies have demonstrated the benefits of exercise in people with Alzheimer's disease. Journal of the American Medical Associate published a study which found that exercise training for patients with Alzheimer's disease not only improves the physical condition and extend their independent mobility. Independent mobility is important, especially for those with Alzheimer's disease, because one of the symptoms of Alzheimer's are often not addressed is the lack of balance, falling and tripping. This causes the injury and the need for constant monitoring in Alzheimer's patients. By combining 60 minutes of exercise on the days of the week, and regular breaks, one can increase its mobility.

Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's until recently, researchers did not stop working hard to find new ways to prevent, treat and cure this disease. Do you know someone affected by Alzheimer's?
