New evidence this month links the Mediterranean diet to a “healthier and younger” brain, which keeps more volume as its age. This is not the first study to back this easy-to-follow diet, which is recommended by the American Alzheimer Association, for its help in maintaining memory and cognitive function as our brains age. The diet has also been linked to reducing your risk of Parkinson’s disease, cancer, type-2 diabetes, and a healthy weight. The Mediterranean diet includes incorporating whole, unprocessed foods into your diet and limiting most dairy and red meat.
The Mediterranean diet is easier to follow than you think! Foods on this diet include:

The evidence is mounting: You may be able to reduce your risk of cognitive decline by making key lifestyle changes. That is the conclusion of a new research summary published online in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association on June 16:
“The research on cognitive decline is still evolving,” said Sue Friedman, president and CEO of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter. “But there are actions people can take. Certain health behaviors known to combat cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes may also reduce the risk of cognitive decline. These include staying mentally and physically active, and eating a heart-healthy diet that benefits your body and your brain. There is also some evidence people may benefit from staying socially engaged with friends, family and the community.”

While America has a highly advanced healthcare system it often finds itself treating injury or disease symptoms rather than curing the underlying injury or disease process. Many times people are given a synthetic medicine to treat symptoms of an injury or disease process rather than being given a Mind, Body and Spiritual alternative to help the healing and maintenance process of an injury, disease or diagnosed illness. NRS believes that all forms of treatments including Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), Nutrition, Spiritual and Holistic modalities should be used in the rehabilitation process along with standard medicine.
