The early chapters of the book present the biology of the disease, including a discussion of how the brain is affected, and what type of external influences can prevent the damage. The good news and surprising, to me is that there is a LOT that we can do. I suspected they were not true medical doctors.

I stand corrected. How did they see things that other doctors did not? The answer is, the authors were in a special place. They were doctors at Loma Linda University, where they were able to study two radically different groups. Nutrition: A whole-food, plant-based diet low in sugar, salt, and processed foods. Exercise: An active lifestyle that incorporates movement every hour. Unwind: Stress management in the form of meditation, yoga, mindful breathing exercises. Restore: Seven to eight hours of regular, detoxifying sleep. I was most interested in the Nutrition chapter. I had always thought that doing puzzles was one of the best mind exercises; however, the doctors have some better suggestions.

Normalize Your Sleep Schedule: 2. Avoid Eating Late at Night: 3. I was already familiar with some of the studies on diet and exercise, but I had no idea that lifestyle could so dramatically reduce the odds of getting this wretched disease. Just because 2 things are correlated, that does not prove that one causes the other.

Nevertheless, the authors make a convincing case for the suggested lifestyle changes. I am implementing many of the lifestyle changes listed in this book, and am also encouraging my spouse to do the same. Advance Review Copy courtesy of the publisher. Oct 27, Esmael rated it it was amazing. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai propose an ambitious plan with a promising positive influence not only over your memory performance and prevention of dementia, but your overall health.

The bullet points of their plan are already mentioned in some previous reviews, but what stood out for me, as a psychotherapist with background in medicine, are the following: 1. They objectively highlight the problem of having a myopic approach to medical challenges, which is unfortunately rampant in the medical field, and which is often dismissive of prevention and behavioral change.

Alas majority of the information offered for readers sandwiched as self-help is purely subjective and lacking sufficient, objective material. This is because a significant number of self-help books follow a familiar narrative style of focusing on few cases of individuals who have overcome a life challenge, achieved success in another domain of their lives, etc. Such experiences are, to the most part, not replicable. Not only theoretical, but also practical The authors, who have done extensive research in addition to comprehensive meta-analysis of hundreds of studies on dementia, not only explain the theoretical and scientific mechanisms behind dementia as much jargon-free as possible!

The bullet points of the plan is already mentioned in other reviews, but it was a breath of fresh air to read the rationale behind their holistic plan, and much to the satisfaction of a scientific, objective mind, every step is supported by scientific data. And this simply means the authors got it right! Dec 30, Linda rated it it was amazing. If you read this book, you will become a Vegan! Sugar, meat, fish, dairy all are bad for your brain! Dec 15, Ola rated it it was amazing.

This book is scary. It makes it clear that unless you take responsibility for your lifestyle, not only your so-called physical health will be affected, but your cognitive capacity too. Jan 21, Marie rated it really liked it Shelves: mental-health. Exercise programs need to be easy and convenient. Multitasking takes an esp "Protective factors for prevention of Alzheimer's are a plant based diet, daylight exposure, regular exercise, 7 to 8 hours of sleep, meditation, continual learning, purpose driven activities and social engagement. Multitasking takes an especially big toll on working memory in older adults.

It relaxes the body by slowing both breathing and heart rate and has also been proven to reduce stress.

Nov 14, Carolyn Frith rated it really liked it. I think everyone who is aging or has aging loved ones that means everyone should read this book. It is a totally different take on dementia than the one expressed by the medical community. If we take action to live healthier lifestyles, we can significantly reduce the chance and severity of dementia in our lives. Dec 01, Fern rated it it was amazing. This is my first book review on Goodreads; the book arrived as a giveaway and I was very pleasantly surprised to receive it.

I am a new retiree, having worked several diverse careers. The authors do a great job of providing hope for a very debilitating condition. Their research and breakdown of life components such as cognitive exercises, nutrition, stress control, physical exercise, and how to optimize the various factors that help preserve mental capacity as we age are all very well explained.

This book motivated me to go for a walk every day at quick pace and to alter my routes. It also motivated me to pull out the old guitar, buy new strings, and start playing and singing again. It seems that all the things we did as children that helped develop our brains get lost as we age. Activities like outdoor playtime, with friends, singing, dancing and learning new things.

A New Treatment for Alzheimer's? It Starts With Lifestyle

The book has a lot of examples on how to reverse the early signs of cognitive decline. And how to prevent further deterioration. I usually pass along great books; this one I am keeping for awhile.

There's a heavy emphasis on vegetarianism in this book which I don't find is supported by studies on Alzheimer's. Overall, it's an easy to read book with a plan of action for those who are looking for step by step guidance. Get it from a library so you don't have to spend money. There's really nothing revolutionary here for anyone who takes a moderate interest in personal health.

Get enough sleep, find ways to reduce stress, have a good social network, eat a variety of vegetables and fruits preferably low-glycemic, keep your weight within normal limits, be physically active, keep your mind active and to me controversially, reduce meat intake even chicken consumption.

This book is actually very practical and contains information everyone SHOULD know-take good care of your body, including nutrition, exercise and reducing stress, and you will live longer.

Taking care of your body means taking care of your brain and the authors lay out the research for this. Apr 30, Kim Veach rated it it was amazing Shelves: health , cookbook , nutrition , plant-based-whole-food. This is such a good and practical book. The first part has a lot of science in it that can be difficult to get through, but once you do and if you like science it's really interesting the rest of the book is easy to understand.

I hate the the title since 'solution' feels like an overstatement for a disease that is still not understood but I still recommend it. Dec 04, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone. Shelves: owned-books. I won this book though goodreads first reads for an honest review.

I love this book. It is so informative and has information that made me questioned what i thought i knew.

I recommend this book to any and all individuals who have a love one or who just want more knowledge on a illness that is still a mystery to most.

Feb 04, Maura rated it it was amazing Shelves: health. Wow, did not realize that early symptoms of cognitive decline could be reversed. My new learnings: how important it is to eat a plant-based diet, and undergo short bursts of exercise throughout the day. The eating guidelines parallel those of many other longevity-focused books: vegan whole plant foods with some algae and other oils.

I'd recommend this book to anyone, even those who don't have a family history of the disease. Sep 14, Sandi Hemming rated it it was amazing. Highly recommend this book if you have a family history of cognitive decline, if you are an aging human, or if you just want to milk everything you can from the years you have!

May 23, Emma Steinmetz rated it it was amazing. Of course I would have loved more detail on the studies and science involved. In alone, caregivers provided an estimated eighteen billion hours of unpaid care. The demands of this disease could crash not only our health-care system, but our entire financial system. One could assume that the earlier you begin changing your diet, your lifestyle, the lower your chances of being affected by this disease are. In , a Loma Linda University study of over 3, subjects found that the risk of developing dementia for those who eat meat was twice that of vegetarians.

Loved the recipes in the end.
