9780761172222: The Alzheimer's Prevention Program: Keep Your Brain Healthy for the Rest of Your Life

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.

Preface
 
For decades, researchers have been searching for a way to cure Alzheimer’s disease, by far the most common cause of age-related mental decline. Despite considerable progress, no miracle remedy has yet been discovered.
 
But we don’t need to sit and wait for a remarkable new drug or vaccine to come along before we start protecting our brains from this devastating disease. The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program offers strategies to help delay symptoms from emerging. The scientific evidence points to prevention as today’s most effective way to defend against Alzheimer’s. If we can stave off the onset of dementia long enough for people never to experience symptoms in their lifetime—that in itself could be considered a cure.
 
Genetics accounts for only part of the risk for Alzheimer’s disease, and we now know that lifestyle choices have a tremendous impact. A lifestyle that promotes brain health not only strengthens neurons and postpones mental decline, it also improves memory ability and brain efficiency right away. No matter where you are in your health profile—even if you exercise every day and eat all the right foods to keep your body and brain healthy—this program will still help you feel better and delay Alzheimer’s disease longer. Whether you’re a student, thirty-something, baby boomer, or senior, you will benefit quickly from practicing Alzheimer’s prevention strategies—and you’ll have fun doing it. It’s never too early or too late to start protecting your brain. The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program will show you how to get your brain healthy and do all you can to keep it that way for the rest of your life.
