Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A revolutionary new approach to diagnose, treat, and delay the onset of the progression of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.

One out of every two families in the United States has a member with Alzheimer's or a related disease. Using their "Shankle-Amen Dementia Screening Test" in conjunction with medication, supplements, and physical exercise, Dr. Shankle and Dr. Amen have developed a program to prevent, delay, detect, and possibly halt Alzheimer's disease. The plan, combined with Dr. Amen's revolutionary brain-imaging techniques (which allow physicians and patients to monitor the workings of an individual's brain and the effects of treatment), will teach readers to employ early detection screening tools and early intervention strategies to delay the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease as well as other forms of dementia.
