The Anti-Alzheimer's Prescription is an interesting look at one of the most dreaded diseases, Alzheimer's. The book presents a fact-filled guide to better health and what lifestyle changes you can make to help prevent the onset of the disease.
Broken down in three parts, Dr. Fortanasce first explains in layman's terms what is known about Alzheimer's and how to evaluate your personal risk factors. The second part of the book is a four-step plan to help prevent the disease by targeting specific health needs of your body and brain. Part Three is the diagnosis, treatment, and future of Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Fortanasce believes that even with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's that there are steps that can be taken to prevent or delay the disease. His experience as a neurologist, and even more personally with his own father, gives the doctor an insight into what lifestyle changes can be made to improve the odds of developing the disease. Using a science-based method with a holistic approach, the doctor gives health suggestions, exercises for both the body and the brain, relaxation techniques, and even menu plans with recipes. Especially interesting is the information on how important sleep is to our health and the importance of the treatment of sleep apnea.
To say this is an important book is an understatement. Alzheimer's is such a devastating disease. If we can make smart choices in our life now, think of the impact we will make on our future.

Dr. Fortanasce describes everything related to Alzheimer's disease (precursors, symptoms, signs, how it affects your body, how your body affects Alzheimer's, how to change your diet and lifestyle to decrease your changes of getting this disease) all in easy-to-understand terminology and examples. The lifestyle and diet changes (for me) were easy to adapt to. I highly recommend buying this book, reading it over & over and keeping it close for reference.
