The most common mental problem affecting senior citizens today is Alzheimers disease. It’s a condition that gradually erodes memory, impairs speech and makes it nearly impossible to be self sufficient. It can turn people who once had strong, vibrant and out-going personalities into entirely different people.
Currently, it’s estimated that nearly 4.5 million people in the United States suffer from Alzheimer’s. That number is projected to jump to as much as 16 million people over the next thirty years.
It’s very important to stay physically and mentally active before and during the senior stage of your life. Research shows healthy lifestyles that include regular physical exercise; mental stimulation; social involvement and consumption of brain-friendly foods all play major roles in preventing or diminishing the loss of memory and brain function as we age.
At Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, we may be able to help you avoid the onset of Alzheimer and Dementia through our unique care and a program that follows principles of a lifestyle of optimal health. It’s a lifestyle of health and wellness like no other you will find.

No single cause can be attributed to Alzheimer’s. Health research indicates that many factors affect the brain over time including lifestyle, environmental conditions and genetics.
Although a specific cause cannot be determined, the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on the brain is obvious. The disease damages and kills brain cells. When a healthy human brain is compared to one that has been damaged by Alzheimer’s, it clearly shows a reduction in both the number of brain cells as well as the connections between the remaining cells.
