For the past few years, I've shared my Dad's ongoing
struggle with dementia with you for one reason and one
reason only...

I hope that by showing you how my dad copes - how we
all cope in fact - it will help others who find
themselves in the same position.

Especially if I discover any treatments or techniques
that I believe could REALLY make a difference.

Because let's face it... keeping our minds clear and
strong is something we ALL want...
We want our minds to stay sharp for our whole lives. We
want to be able to remember the joyous events we've
experienced (except for certain rugby matches). 
We all want to remember names and faces, keep our
humour, wisdom and compassion...  and feel 100%
ourselves 'til the day we die.
It doesn't sound like too much to ask, does it?
But sadly, it's something we can't take for granted...
Why a million of us face the agony of dementia

As you age, your brain tissue comes under constant
attack. Cells die. The old connections falter and
flicker. And you face the increased threat of dementia
and Alzheimer's.
And this IS a growing problem. According to a 2007 study
in The Alzheimer's Society:

- There are currently 700,000 people with dementia in
  the UK

- There are currently 15,000 younger people with
  dementia in the UK.

- There will be over 1 million people with dementia by

If you're worried about dementia and want to know how to
help protect yourself as much as you can then please
read on.

Because this is something I think you should really try...
The key to protecting your mind

Trial after trial, study after study... they all point
to one thing...
The more you keep your brain stimulated, the better you
can protect yourself from age-related memory loss,
dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Dr Valentina Garibotta from San Raffaele University in
Milan has found that tissue damage leads more quickly to
memory loss in the 'less intellectually stimulated.' 
To put it another way, the less mentally simulated you
are, the less your brain can deal with tissue damage as
you get older....
....and the more devastating the effect of this tissue
damage will be.
How to create a buffer against Alzheimer's, dementia,
and age related memory loss
His team believe that by undergoing continually
mentally demanding activity, you can form a buffer
against the effects of Alzheimer's. It's as if you have
a 'reserve' of brainpower to dip into when times get
If old age is life's 'credit crunch'... then your memory
power is your secret stash of savings.
So how can you start building your protective buffer
against dementia, Alzheimer's and the like?
Well, just like body builders go to the gym, you can
also exercise your brain. 

Researchers believe that performing regular, targeted
brain training can also boost your brain's cognitive

And there's no better way to do this than to try this:

    brain fight the causes of Alzheimer's are pomegranates, 
    wild blueberries, broccoli and spinach, and apples. 
  • Eat plenty of fish and seeds that include omega-3 oils. 
    But make sure it's good quality and free from any 
    taints of mercury.  
  • Eat foods packed with anti-oxidants and you'll protect 
    your brain from cell damage.  These foods include green 
    tea, red wine, berries, tomatoes, garlic, red grapes,
