The Alzheimer's Prevention Program: Keep Your Brain Healthy for the Rest of Your Lifeby Gary Small
Synopses & Reviews
Want to keep Alzheimers at bay for years—ideally, forever? Prevention is the way, and this is the guide. Now in paperback and updated throughout, The Alzheimers Prevention Program is essential for everyone with a family history of Alzheimers, and for the 80 million baby boomers who worry whenever they forget someones name. Its the book that shows how to strengthen memory and avoid everyday lapses. How to incorporate the top ten brain-protecting foods into your diet. How to cross-train your brain, exercising both the right and left hemisphere. And how to reduce stress, a risk factor for developing dementia and Alzheimers, through meditation and 11 other relaxation strategies.
Written by the New York Times bestselling authors of The Memory Bible, this book is an easy-to-follow regimen based on the latest comprehensive research into Alzheimers disease, and especially the critical connection between lifestyle and susceptibility. The paperback edition is updated with a brand-new section that answers the most compelling questions asked of Dr. Small after publication of the first edition, including: the power of exercise to offset a genetic predisposition; antibodies that can clear Alzheimers plaques from the brain; and promising new treatments, from drugs to deep brain stimulation.
Its the science-based, breakthrough program that will bring mental clarity to every day and help you take control of your brains health.
