The Treatment of Alzheimer’s Is Dancing

New findings have been published regarding the fact that dance is the most powerful activity to prevent Alzheimer’s development announced Prof. Dr. Okan Bölükbaşı Head of Department of Neurology at Okan University Hospital.

“Contrary to previously thought, puzzle solving and similar activities have low effectiveness in preventing Alzheimer’s development. It was reported that the important finding is the highest activity in the prevention is to dance. The work has been going on for 21 years. The results were published in the world famous medical journal NEJM. According to Albert Einstein Medical College’s work, the recommended activities to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s development and the risk reduction rates are as follows; reading (35%), cycling and swimming (0%), puzzling at least 4 times a week (47%), playing golf (0%), frequent dancing (76%). As you can see from this result, it is the effort to reduce the risk to the highest level, to dance in a music accord. There is no evidence yet of which dance type is more effective, but different brain units that work separately from each other must be engaged in order to dance. These mechanisms need coordination of kinesthetic, rational, musical and emotional functions at the same time. It is thought that this coordinated brain work is the cause of stopping Alzheimer’s development at this rate.”
