It's never too early to reduce your risk of developing Alzheimers by 70% with this science-proven and achievable plan.We've all made little jokes about incipient Alzheimer's when we do something silly or forgetful, but at heart we are terrified of ending our days in a state of mental oblivion, our personalities eradicated by this horrible disease. Advances in medical science mean that we can look forward to a long life, but what kind of life is it if the last eight years are spent joyless, helpless and blank in a nursing home? There is no cure in sight for Alzheimer's and our best hopes are captured by prevention through smart diet and lifestyle changes. These changes are the foundation of this galvanising call to action by distinguished neurologist Vincent Fortanasce. Doctors now know that the damage associated with Alzheimer's begins decades before any symptoms appear. That is why it is never too early to start applying Dr Fortanasce's straightforward and sensible lifestyle prescription. This involves first of all identifying your specific risk profile and then following his 4-step program to improve brain health. These steps are: 1.The Anti-Alzheimer's anti-inflammatory diet 2. Brain Boosters (smart exercise for brain health) 3. Brain Boosters (mental challenges to build cognitive reserves) 4. Rest and Recovery (finding your circle of quiet) There are also chapters on making a medical diagnosis and the latest medical treatments available. The Anti-Alzheimer's Prescription is medically comprehensive and fascinating to read. It is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to protect their brain to live to an active, engaged old age.
