Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Is this sentence corrrect:
"A measure frequently APPOINTED to prevent Alzeihmers is EXERCIZING your brain."

This is ambiguous and appointed is the wrong choice of word. Adopted or recommended would be better. Using the participle (exercising) is awkward in this location since that may suggest the measure is taxing your brain.
A measure frequently recommended to prevent Alzheimer's Disease is to exercise the brain.
You could simplify:
Exercising the brain is often recommended to prevent Alzheimer's Disease

you could easily say it in a less formal way, like saying something like "a step against (or to prevent) Alzheimer's is to excercise (or train) your memory". Greetings from Wyoming, USA.
