Amazon Link for The Anti-Alzheimer's Prescription
The Anti-Alzheimer’s Prescription is an interesting look at one of the most dreaded diseases. The book presents a fact-filled guide to better health and what lifestyle changes you can make to help prevent the onset of the disease.
Broken down in three parts, Dr. Fortanasce explains first in layman’s terms what is known about Alzheimer’s and how to evaluate your personal risk factors. The second part of the book is a four-step plan to help prevent the disease by targeting specific health needs of your body and brain. Part Three is the diagnosis, treatment, and future of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Fortanasce believes that even with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s there are steps that can be taken to prevent or delay the disease. His experience as a neurologist, and even more personally with his own father, gives the doctor an insight into what lifestyle changes can be made to decrease the likelihood of developing the disease. Using a science-based method with a holistic approach, the doctor gives health suggestions, exercises for both the body and the brain, relaxation techniques, and even menu plans with recipes. Especially interesting is the information on how important sleep is to our health and the importance of the treatment of sleep apnea.
To say this is an important book is an understatement. Alzheimer’s is such a devastating disease. If we can make smart choices in our life now, think of the impact we will make on our future.
