A New Study Suggest That Meditation Can Help You Reduce Your Risk Of Alzheimers.
A study out of Canada found that Stress in middle age patients can cause dementia by damaging your brain. There is evidence that certain areas of the brain are affected by chronic anxiety, fear and stress.
When subjected to chronic stress, patients experienced similar patterns of abnormal brain activity, specifically to areas of the brain associated with emotional responses and the regulation of emotions.
Researchers found that stress induced damage can be combated or even reversed with anti-depressants and physical activity. It also suggests that CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) and mindfulness training could be the best ways to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.
