HELP! I'M ONLY 40 YEARS OLD AND I CAN'T REMEMBER A THING!
You took care of your body. You've been taking care of your heart. Now you're a model of health and fitness, but your brain is letting you down. Is there anything you can do to stop the slide into forgetfulness, mental dullness, and mental old age?
Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., says there is a lot you can do, from cutting your body's output of the adrenal hormone cortisol -- a substance proven to be toxic to human brain cells in excessive concentrations -- to making the powerful connection between a happy spirit and a well-functioning mind. In a book full of great news, dramatic scientific evidence of ancient truths, and practical help, you will learn:
-- how brain-specific supplements such as coenzyme Q-10, phosphatidyl serine, and Gingko biloba can increase short-term memory power
-- which nutrients, antioxidants, and supplements help "feed" your neurotransmitters
-- how to increase your body's production of melatonin with mind-body exercises
-- how to improve your sexual life for a healthier and sharper mind
-- which medications work best and which ones to avoid.

Now, those seeking to restore faded powers (listen up, baby boomers) have a trio of brand-new advisers on doing just that. Weil's Eight Weeks to Optimum Health tells how to improve general health, Klatz and Kahn's Grow Young with HGH tells how to delay and reverse the effects of aging, and anesthesiologist-gerontologist Khalsa and journalist Stauth tell how to tone a sagging mind and stave off that curse of long life, Alzheimer's disease. Like fellow physicians Weil and Klatz, Khalsa proffers a program--brain-longevity therapy. Like Klatz, he targets a particular cause of the deterioration that his scheme addresses. But while too little human growth hormone gives rise to the problems Klatz addresses, too much of the hormone cortisol, produced by the body in response to stress and linked to brain damage, causes memory loss and lassitude in particular. Unsurprisingly, stress reduction is one of four basics of Khalsa's program, the others being nutritional therapy, mental and physical exercise, and, when clearly necessary, pharmacology (hormone therapy ala Klatz). Before expounding the program, Khalsa and Stauth explain the development of brain-longevity therapy and how the brain works in health and in sickness, especially Alzheimer's. Fascinating and, Warner hopes (it has scheduled a 100,000-copy first printing), magnetically appealing. Ray Olson
