Tongue exercise to prevent or tackle the onset of Alzheimer's disease


According to experts, Alzheimer's disease is a progressive form of presenile dementia that is similar to senile dementia except that it usually starts in the 40s or 50s; first symptoms are impaired memory which is followed by impaired thought and speech and finally, complete helplessness.

Meanwhile scientists and researchers of the U.S. Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation say having workouts on a regular basis is capable of minimising your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by up to 50 percent. Also, they say workout is sure to slow down the rate of degeneration in individuals who are already beginning to experience cognitive problems. However, modern research has come up with various ways with which to ameliorate and even check the onset of the disease.

The Brain link
Here is a very important message especially for the senior citizens: Alzheimer's is an illness in which there is a progressive loss of memory. If adequate care is not taken the victim may completely lose his/ her memories. Studies have showed that after the age of 50 one may likely begin to go through some kinds of illnesses, and so many people today are beginning to be concerned about Alzheimer's disease which sometimes could be one of the health issues. Some of the fears include the inability of the individuals to properly take care of themselves apart from the fact that they might also become a source of burden or bother for members of the immediate family.

In a recent study, scientists have discovered how a big nerve connection exists with the brain, which is why researchers and medical doctors, seeking ways to stimulate the brain are looking to the tongue for neural retraining as well as rehabilitation especially after traumatic injuries or diseases have occurred. Based on this, a team of scientists at Helius Medical Technologies in the U.S. feel strongly that combining physical therapy with stimulation of the tongue is likely to ameliorate impairment of brain function and symptoms of injury that are linked with it.

The tongue has a strong link with the brain

In the words of the CMO at Helius, Dr. Jonathan Sackier, he said, “We have already seen that stimulation of various nerves can improve symptoms of a range of neurological diseases. However, we believe the tongue is a much more elegant and direct pathway for stimulating brain structures and inducing neuroplasticity. We are focused on investigating the tongue as a gateway to the brain to hopefully ease the disease of brain injury.”

The Tongue exercise
Experts and those who have put it to practice say this form of exercise has proved to be successful in an attempt to trim down the commencement of Alzheimer's disease. As a result it has been established that the tongue exercise overtime, is also able to deal positively with the following health issues:

Body weight
Hypertension
Blood-Clot in Brain
Asthma
Longsightedness
Ear buzzing
Throat infection
Shoulder/ Neck infection
Insomnia
Digestion problems
General debility

The tongue exercise is very easy to do: Every morning, having washed your face, stand in front of a mirror and carry out the following procedures:

Stick out your tongue as much as you can and - move it to the right and then to the left for 10 times. It is as simple as that; the tongue exercise has been known to aid the control and prevention of Alzheimer's disease, reason being that the tongue is connected to a part of the brain referred to as the ‘big brain’. Studies show that when our body becomes old and frail, one of the first noticeable signs is the stiffening of the tongue; and we are inclined to biting ourselves – mistakenly of course.

And so, exercising your tongue on a regular basis will go to stimulate the brain. Experts say this will in turn combat or decrease the shrinking of our thoughts, which will consequently lend to a more wholesome mind and body.
