Common Condition SKYROCKETS Your Dementia Risk

It starts out with misplacing your keys.

Forgetting where you put your wallet. Then you begin having trouble finding the right words.

Eventually you’re extremely confused in even the simplest of conversations. You can’t remember what you had for breakfast. Or worse, you can’t remember your grandchild’s name.

Dementia is a devastating, heart-wrenching disease. And there’s no cure for it.

And if you suffer from a certain common condition, it could be a clear sign that you’re on the fast track to dementia.

Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re frequently struck with head-splitting pains that have you down for hours, you’ll want to keep reading…

A University of Waterloo study tracked 700 people over the age of 65 for five years…

Incredibly, they found that folks with a history of migraines were THREE TIMES more likely to develop dementia.

And over FOUR TIMES more likely to get its close relative, Alzheimer’s…

Researchers believe that these EXTREME headaches cause inflammation in the brain. This inflammation could lead to neurological damage… and then memory loss.

If you’re one who struggles with this common condition you already know just how debilitating it can be.

And with evidence showing that these brain-busters land you in a nursing home unable to remember your own children’s names … it’s time to put a stop to them for good.

Here are three ways to get rid of your migraines today and SLASH your chance of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s: 

1. Magnesium

If you’re low in magnesium you could be at greater risk to experience a migraine. Research has found that magnesium supplements can help reduce migraines and how often you have them.

2. Ginger

A study looked at the effectiveness of ginger powder against Imitrex — a common migraine drug — in 100 participants. They found that ginger was just as, and in some cases, MORE effective than the drug!  Even better? Using ginger has zero side effects.

3. Acupressure

Applying pressure to specific parts of the body releases muscle tension and pain. A 2012 study looked at 40 migraine-sufferers. When pressure was applied to the PC6 acupoint (located three fingers up from the base of the wrist on the inside of the arm) they found that it was effective in relieving migraine symptoms when applied pressure.

It’s time to lose the migraines and not your memory. Try one of the above end put an end to this head-splitting condition.
