Browse health magazines, ezine articles and newspapers. Observe how many
articles trumpet the advantages of physical activity. There are exercise suggestions on weight loss, diabetes control, lowering
high blood pressure, improving cardiac function, withstanding depression and osteoporosis, lowering bad cholesterol, aiding
you to quit smoking and more. Unfortunately, you can't find articles in health magazines that debate the benefits of
being physically active for men and women with Alzheimer's Disease.
The advantages of exercising for men and women with Alzheimer are chronicled on only 2 professional magazines as of Feb.,
2001. The authors of Alzheimer's Disease Rehab by Students program (Arkin, 1999) reported dramatic growth in physical fitness
and frame of mind, maintenance of function in numerous language models, and a slower than typical worsening of mental quality
after just one year of exercise.
Overwhelming growth on four cognitive models after three months of aerobic exercising
was showed by the former investigation run in Italy in 1996. A gain in communication and sociable cooperation and a
decrease in the prevalence of undesirable behaviors such as tugging their clothing, speaking profanely, wandering and aggressive
acts was reported by another 1996 investigation on patients with more severe dementia.
In a research organized
at the University of Washington School of Medicine and Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, non-cardiovascular
individuals diagnosed with benign cognitive impairment, showed continuing deterioration on trials in thinking speed, articulation
and multitasking capabilities. Nonetheless, those who engaged in half a year of cardiovascular training demonstrated
astonishing achievements in mental clarity.
Researchers still haven't fully understood how Alzheimer's disease
jumbles the ability for someone to think, erode personality and erase memory. Protein fragments, called amyloid plaques, seem
to commence the evolution of nerve cell damage. The brain dwindles and the disease hastens as larger, knotted strings of another
protein surfaces inside brain cells. In most cases, increasing knots and plaques bring about more nasty manifestations of
It is still obscure whether exercise can prevent Alzheimer. However, many investigators firmly
believe that it is more apt to help than current pharmaceuticals or supplements, which have neglected to exhibit preventive
effects in medical experiments.
Some researchers suspect that physical fitness training, mental excitement and
general health supports the brain to bear more corruption and still operate normally.
Some scientists are convinced
that cardiovascular physical activity improves cardiac and artery resilience, which builds blood flow to the brain. Exercise
prevents and reverses diabetes, keeps energy metabolism stable and relieves stress thereby preventing deleterious chain-reactions
discharged by the accumulation of stress hormones.
Dr. Michael Mega, a neuroscientist with the Providence Brain
Institute in Portland affirms the emerging point of view that coronary health and brain health are closely associated. Studies
have confirmed that the situations that effect one's heart to stop working perfectly such as a desk-bound style of living,
uncontrolled cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking are the same risk elements that add to the risks for Alzheimer's disease.
What this means is that someone with Alzheimer's disease draw out the same advantages from a regular physical activity
plan as their peers who do not have the disease because men and women with Alzheimer's disease obtain the same health obstacles
and emotional demands as others. Not only that, they now obtain the power to gain experience and show achievement in fitness
at a time when they are wasting away skills in every other arena of life. These bring about a source of self-esteem to the
his or her caretaker and the patient.
With all the benefits of exercise, why are there no persons with Alzheimer's
flocking to our gyms and health spas? Many persons have difficulty introducing and maintaining a new behavior or pattern
on their own even at the very early stage of Alzheimer's Disease. A lof of patients no longer drive on their own. Many
patients do not have the budget to buy fitness equipment for home. And even if they do, these are more than likely used
as a clothes rack and by younger members of the household.
Therefore, somebody needs to encourage people with Alzheimer
into an exercise program and encourage them to adhere to it. If you are a person caring for someone with Alzheimer and
are unsound or in no condition yourself, you are more than likely not the right candidate for encouraging and persevering
your partner into an exercise routine. However, such fitness plans could serve you as much as your loved one.
You can assist a parent who has dementia by making a fitness program as part their life. You can take several trips to a
fitness center instead of going out to eat or to the movie theater. You can all profit from the increased activity by
If you really are engaged with other activities to undertake a huge responsibility, advertise
on Craigslist or local college newspaper and take on an undergrad to do it. Compensate them the same or slightly more than
minimum wage and they will be glad to tackle on an assignment that will be attractive on a resume.

Hi, I’m Grace Soong, owner of Xtreme Fitness. Above are two pictures of me.
The first was taken in 1996 and as you can see, I wasn’t just overweight, I was obese. At my heaviest I weighed 250

pounds in 13 months and have kept the weight off for over 10 years! Now I have the life and body I’ve always wanted.
