Prevention of Dementia with a Treadmill!

 

This is one of my favorite shots of Japanese Cranes. This was taken in Kushiro, one of the trips during my courtship with Setsuko. Fond memories!

 PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING INCLUDES RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE GENERAL POPULATION. PLEASE START SLOWLY AND SEE A DOCTOR OR SPECIALIST BEFORE INCREASING THE DURATION AND/OR INTENSITY OF YOUR WORKOUTS!

We need to keep moving! So says David Brown, the author of a fascinating book titled "Beating the Dementia Monster." David came down with early onset Dementia, but was able to stop and even reverse the symptoms.

"I now believe that my life absolutely depends on the treadmill. I believe that daily aerobic exercise, more than any other factor, has turned my condition around, at least for the foreseeable future."

In his book, David says that he works out on a treadmill 50 minutes per day, six days per week. He recommends a 10 minute warmup and then a workout at 65% of a person's maximum heart rate.
