Description

Want to keep Alzheimer's at bay for years--ideally, forever? Prevention is the way, and this is the guide. Now in paperback and updated throughout, The Alzheimer's Prevention Program is essential for everyone with a family history of Alzheimer's, and for the 80 million baby boomers who worry whenever they forget someone's name. It's 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 Alzheimer's, 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 Alzheimer's 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 Alzheimer's plaques from the brain; and promising new treatments, from drugs to deep brain stimulation. It's the science-based, breakthrough program that will bring mental clarity to every day and help you take control of your brain's health.

display_description"The only "cure" for Alzheimer's is prevention, and The Alzheimer's Prevention Program shows the reader how to take control. The program begins with an assessment test checking everything from recall to physical balance. Then, with a baseline established, it introduces the 7-Day jumpstart program - just seven days to begin to improve everything: memory training 101, including the author's easy-to-use "Look, Snap, Connect" memory technique. Daily mental workouts to sharpen your brain: wordplay, letter scrambles, 3-D drawings, tricky equations, logic challenges, and number sequences. Healthy brain nutrition, filled with antioxidants - berries, avocados, raw vegetables; omega-3 rich, anti-inflammatory food choices, including fish, whole grains, legumes; and the memory-boosting spices most often found in Indian curries. Stress-reduction strategies to fortify neurons. Best aerobic and strength exercises"--Provided by publisher.
