(NaturalNews) Can Alzheimer`s disease be prevented, or is there anything which can be done to delay its inevitable progression? That was the question posed in a mock court run by the National Institutes of Health which reviewed a variety of factors including diet, exercise, mental health, social engagement, supplements and drugs, and they arrived at the depressing conclusion that there was no course of action which could prevent this disease. Alternative health advocates understand that these results were preconceived by pharmaceutical and governmental influence, as extensive research confirms that following a natural lifestyle strategy dramatically lowers the risk of Alzheimer`s disease.

Alzheimer`s Disease Results From Metabolic Dysfunction
Alzheimer`s disease is a condition caused by decades of dietary abuse, wild blood sugar spikes, insulin resistance and repeated exposure to environmental and household toxins. Our food supply is impregnated with food additives and flavor enhancing chemicals, many of which are known to be unsafe.

Medical researchers are now calling this affliction Type III diabetes as high blood glucose levels are believed to precipitate the brain protein tangles which are a hallmark sign of the disease. One key to Alzheimer`s disease prevention is to control blood sugar swings through strict adherence to a natural diet which eliminates all sugar, processed carbohydrates and foods containing high fructose corn syrup.

Controlling Alzheimer`s Disease Risk with Natural Diet and Exercise
The food we eat has a powerful impact on our genes, positively or negatively switching our genetic structure based on the micronutrient composition of our diet. Excess calories from a high carbohydrate and sugar diet increase triglycerides which are deposited in fat cells as we approach middle age. This results in the epidemic explosion of overweight and obese individuals and greatly increases the risk of developing Alzheimer`s disease.

The results of a study released by the Journal of the American Medical Association found that Mediterranean style diets as well as regular exercise were both independent factors which reduced the risk for Alzheimer`s disease. This type of diet stresses plenty of fresh vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, fish, nuts, seeds and monounsaturated olive oil, naturally lowering levels of inflammation in the body and providing essential nutrients required for brain health.

Making the Correct Lifestyle Changes to Prevent Alzheimer`s Disease
In addition to diet, our environment and lifestyle are much different than even a generation past, providing the genetic blueprint for Alzheimer`s disease. The vast majority of people get little or no regular physical activity and are severely overweight, both leading to high blood pressure and poor vascular health. Hypertension damages blood vessels which supply needed oxygen and nutrients to the brain, resulting in vascular dementia, stroke and Alzheimer`s disease.

Make a conscious effort to learn something new every day. Mental stimulation is just as important for your brain as physical exercise is for your muscles. Learning stimulates the connections between neurons, and helps build neuronal links which store and retrieve memories. Challenge your mind with a crossword puzzle, learn a new language or engage in any mental activity which is new to you every day.

Alzheimer`s disease is among the most feared illnesses, which afflict our modern society, as the condition remains a mystery to medical science. Natural health practitioners understand that the disease is largely precipitated by the dietary, environmental and lifestyle abuse we subject ourselves to over the course of a lifetime. Alzheimer`s disease is not inevitable, and can be prevented by eliminating processed foods, limiting exposure to environmental and household toxins and following a natural Mediterranean style diet.
