"BrainPower is a truly remarkable, must needed effort,(this book is) a formidable weapon against cognitive/memory affecting scourges like Alzheimer's Disease or other dementias, as well as disorders resulting in severe learning difficulties in our children." Dr. Ronald F. Levant, EdD, ABPP, MBA
BrainPower is..."An engaging, scientifically based, yet highly practical approach describing what we can do for ourselves and our loved ones, as our Nation's population steadily matures. Oftentimes confusing medical jargon is straightforwardly explained with useful and understandable advice proffered. Suggestions for daily exercises and dietary modifications are especially helpful." Dr. Patrick DeLeon, PhD, JD, MBA
"BrainPower pulls together all the very latest advances in the science of keeping well, integrating knowledge from a huge range of disciplines and resources, the authors provide the best possible basis for improving our sense of well-being at whatever age. In particular, its innovative approach to memory and the mind makes it highly relevant for aging baby boomers looking to keep their cognitive edge." Dr. Margaret Hannah, MB, M-chir, FFPHM
The International Longevity Center states that even without new scientific breakthroughs people in industrialized countries could increase their lifespan ?at least 10-years? by eating less and exercising more: ?Half the [U.S.] population is overweight, 20% are obese, and only 15% of people over the age of 65 regularly exercise. Our diets are overwhelmingly conducive to the development of heart disease, and far too many of us still use tobacco products.? Staying mentally, physically and emotionally fit is the key to having ?BrainPower.?
It is not that research does not exist, or even that techniques, medications, and clinical approaches are missing for Alzheimer?s disease and other dementias or memory problems. What has been missing, however, is a resource where peer-reviewed studies from various professions are summarized in a readable, accessible, understandable, and actionable single source?that is until this book.
Evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence have been brought together in these volumes in such a way as to provide readers with a strong basis for understanding the complex and often confounding world of intellectual decline, confusion, loss of focus, concentration and memory impairments, debilitating problems that are often attached to dreaded diagnoses like Alzheimer?s Disease, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Dyslexia.
