Using Nutrition to Combat the Effects of Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer s disease is a type of dementia that can be very hard for both the patient and the carer. While the cause of Alzheimer s disease is still a mystery, new research has increased our knowledge of certain aspects of the disease. Perhaps most significant, studies show that proper diet may make a real difference, not only in slowing the progression of Alzheimers, but, also, in preventing it.

THE ALZHEIMER S PREVENTION & TREATMENT DIET outlines a cutting-edge nutritional programme that will be of interest both to Alzheimer s patients and to anybody who wants to maintain optimal memory and mental agility for years to come. The book begins with an overview of Alzheimer's disease, outlining its symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis and current treatment methods. You'll, also, learn how Alzheimer's disease differs from other forms of memory loss and cognitive impairment. Next, Drs. Isaacson and Ochner take a closer look at the impact of nutrition on your ability to think and remember, examining the effects of carbohydrates, fats and proteins on the brain. Then, they share their innovative programme for Alzheimer's prevention, showing you how to maximise your cognitive health through diet and exercise. Finally, the authors give tips for the carer on adapting and implementing the programme for people who already have Alzheimer's, decreasing the speed with which symptoms worsen.

If Alzheimer's disease is a concern for you or a loved one, THE ALZHEIMER'S PREVENTION & TREATMENT DIET will give you the information you need to fight back. Using Dr. Isaacson and Dr. Ochner s recommendations, you can put into practice what the evidence is showing us that what you eat can make all the difference for your mind.
