|Last Friday, I showed you a fantastic way to help improve your gait. The Power Plate is a fantastic "exercise" method that just about anyone can use. But if your gait isn't what it used to be, then you need to take notice. It could be a signal that Alzheimer's is setting in.
Researchers have noted that people destined for cognitive decline, including Alzheimer's, may show early warning signs in their walking. They note that walking changes can occur before cognitive decline surfaces and that the evidence is "robust." This is valuable information.
A Mayo Clinic study measured stride, length, cadence (rhythm), and velocity of more than 1,341 participants. They did the measurements using computerized analysis at two or more visits roughly 15 months apart. Those with lower values experienced significantly larger declines in cognitive function. A second study found similar findings.
This makes sense since walking is a complex task. It requires multiple areas of your brain. It requires cognition, sight, motor, sensory, and balance pathways. This is a rather exciting discovery since this evaluation is non-invasive. It could be an early predictor of those at risk, when, perhaps integrative strategies might be most effective.
If you have concerns, you might connect with a neurologist to find out what institutions in your area might have this wonderful emerging technology.

In the meantime, make sure you're eating a brain-healthy diet, such as the Living Foods Diet, and taking nutrients, such as those in Advanced Memory Formula. The Power Plate, which I told you about last Friday and in previous issues of the print newsletter, might help improve your gait and potentially ward off memory decline as well.
