Each day, in every corner of the world, thousands of people are seeing
their brains and their lives destroyed by Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a deadly
epidemic that’s only getting worse
Worldwide, nearly 36 million people are believed to be living with
Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. By 2030, if breakthroughs
are not discovered, we will see an increase to nearly 66 million.
By 2050, rates could exceed 115 million.
Every four seconds, a new case of dementia occurs somewhere in the world.
These numbers are staggering, and they are also climbing steadily.
But do not despair.
In Alzheimer’s: What you must know to protect your brain, which is
based on Dr Cabot’s careful research and her 30 years of experience
as a doctor, you’ll find new hope and many new options in your personal
battle to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Learn about how Alzheimer’s affects the brain and how other medical
problems may mimic its symptoms. Also, hear from an expert, the vital
techniques to improve your memory.
You’ll take a tour of the normal brain and see how billions of neurones
guide your body and your life. Then, learn what happens when Alzheimer’s
strikes. With Alzheimer’s, you forget all too soon the things you thought
you could never forget.
Are you personally at risk for the disease? Take a test and find out—and
then review some of the most common risk factors and learn how many of
these risk factors can be neutralised.
There is no one medical or laboratory test that can pinpoint early
Alzheimer’s with certainty, but Dr Cabot has researched the most
effective tests and is sharing this information in a manner that
is easy to read, and even easier to understand.
Diagnosing early-stage Alzheimer’s is like trekking deep forests with
no map—it’s very easy to get lost. Dr.Cabot can put you on the right
path, as she reveals the 10 common warning signs of Alzheimer’s.
The association between depression and the risk of dementia is
discussed for the first time in a book.
With no current cure available for Alzheimer’s, this is essential
reading for those who don’t want to leave the fate of their brain
and their golden years to chance. For the first time in print,
Dr Cabot explains her 4-Point Program for Stopping Alzheimer’s.
She doesn’t accept the common medical belief that Alzheimer’s
can never be prevented or slowed, and reveals how a few simple
lifestyle changes are the stepping off point to a healthier brain.
Brain Boosting Foods & Recipes
The fattiest organ in the human body…what is it? The liver perhaps,
or a kidney? No, it’s the brain, and this fatty organ is
terribly fragile and vulnerable to damage from free radicals.
What you put in your stomach has a huge effect on the health of
your brain. Dr Cabot pulls no punches in providing a selection
of foods guaranteed to tune-up and protect the vulnerable
structures of the brain against the damage caused by Alzheimer’s
All of the recipes for meals, raw juices and shakes have brain-boosting
and brain-protective potential.
Brain Booster Supplements
First, try powering your car engine with muddy water. Then, switch to a
high-quality petrol. The improvement you’ll see is similar to the
improvement that will take place in your brain when you start eating
brain boosting foods (garlic and turmeric are great for your brain).
There are various vitamins and minerals which are vital to the health
of your brain - they include selenium, fish oil, magnesium, B vitamins,
lecithin, zinc and amino acid supplements.
The final piece of Dr. Cabot’s 4-Point Program is mental stimulation,
a definite Alzheimer’s antidote that can be practised any place,
with anybody, and at any time. Learn simple brain exercises
and games to strengthen you mind.
There are a number of possible advances in prescription drugs
where Alzheimer’s is concerned. You’ll read about these, find
out what medicines are currently being dispensed, which ones
may follow, and how participating in a clinical trial may help
you and let you help others.
Can Alzheimer’s disease be prevented? In many people it can.
Can it's progression be slowed? Yes, again. Can some of the brain
damage inflicted by Alzheimer’s be repaired? Very possibly, as we
now have new research that shows that laboratory animals with
Alzheimer’s dementia actually get better once the abnormal
genes are switched off. We also know that it is possible to
grow new brain cells and new connections between brain cells
no matter how old you are. Dr. Cabot reviews the key points of
her 4-Point Program for protecting the brain and shares her
compassionate and practical tips on caring for loved ones who
have the disease.
