Could Stress Lead to Dementia?
Do you know about the relationship between stress and dementia?
Recent research has created a new category of dementia called LATE (Limbic-predominant Age-related TDP-43 Encephalopathy.) It may be even more common than Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s and LATE can even occur together, which accelerates the rate of cognitive decline. Science is discovering different pathways and layers to this horrible disease, and the more we know, the better chance we have of discovering treatments.
Unfortunately, modern medicine fails to look at the underlying causes of disease and how we can begin to prevent it in the first place. Without addressing diet, lifestyle, inflammation, and stress, we’ll never discover the underlying trigger that begins the process of brain deterioration.
It’s known that excessive levels of cortisol due to chronic stress, inflames the hippocampus and sets up your brain for destruction. The first pathological expression of LATE was profound neuron loss in the hippocampus. It’s this destruction of the brain's memory center that may prove to be at the root of a large portion of cognitive health issues.
The Power of Adaptogens
There are many preventive benefits of adaptogens, which can help protect you from stress, excessive cortisol, and inflammation. You need to take your health into your own hands by creating a program to support healthy brain function.
Eating well, exercising, and using herbal supplements can upgrade your health dramatically and begin the process of saving your brain.
Formulas such as Inner Peace with stress reducing adaptogens and TianChi with brain boosting nutraceuticals can help to balance your brain, reduce cortisol, and lay the groundwork before it’s too late.
Being proactive about your brain health is the first step in preventing memory and cognitive issues further down the road.
