Overview

From a world-renowned neurologist: the first book to feature a scientifically substantiated program for the only treatment for Alzheimer's: prevention.

Alzheimer's is pandemic among older adults worldwide, and as baby boomers age it promises to be the Great American Epidemic of the twenty-first century. Unlike other books in the category, which focus primarily on caring for an Alzheimer's patient after diagnosis, The Anti-Alzheimer's Prescription presents a program to lower your risk by 70%:

• Assess your risk factors and determine your “Real Brain Age”

• Step One: the Anti-Alzheimer's Diet, including recipes and a twenty-eight-day menu

• Step Two: daily physical exercises for the body and mind

• Step Three: daily “neurobics” to build a big brain reserve

• Step Four: the importance of stress reduction and quality sleep

• Making a diagnosis and the latest medical therapies being developed

For the millions of men and women at risk for developing this debilitating illness, The Anti-Alzheimer's Prescription is a lifesaving breakthrough.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Although Americans are living longer, healthier lives, the number of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease will increase dramatically as the baby boomers continue to age. The incidence of memory disorders in people in their fifties and sixties is already growing at a troubling rate, according to physician Fortanasce (neurology, Univ. of Southern California). Learning how to control the risk factors for dementia is essential to preventing or delaying the onset of memory disorders, he believes. To that end, he prescribes a diet of "brain boosting foods" like good fats, complex carbohydrates, and lean protein; a regimen of aerobic and strength training routines; "neurobics," memory-improving mental workouts; adequate sleep; stress management; and relaxation techniques. Also covered are tips for choosing a physician if a failing memory is cause for concern, available diagnostic techniques, the importance of getting an early diagnosis to slow disease progression, current medical treatments (including holistic remedies), an "Anti-Alzheimer's Diet Plan" accompanied by recipes, and a body mass calculator. Baby boomers with elderly parents or who are approaching later life will find this to be an authoritative guide to memory disorders. Highly recommended for consumer and aging health collections along with P. Murali Doraiswamy and Lisa P. Gwyther's The Alzheimer's Action Plan, Cathryn Jakobson Ramin's Carved in Sand: When Attention Fails and Memory Fades in Midlife, and Gary Small's The Memory Bible.

    Informative and Hopeful

    Many of us worry about whether we will get Alzheimer¿s. This book helps calm that fear because the message is if we start now with diet and lifestyle changes, we can prevent or delay Alzheimer¿s. This book gives my wife and I hope that we can overcome the preventable and horrible Alzheimer¿s disease. Dr. Fortanasce explains in a clear way reasonable changes we can make, without prescription medication to enhance and protect our brain.
