The Anti-Alzheimers Prescription by Vincent Fortanasce M.D. is the book that many have been waiting for. It offers a Four Step Alzheimers Prevention program. this book is practical and is based on scientific medicine.
Dr. Fortanasce is a clinical professor of neurology at the University of Southern California. He is board certified in neurology and rehabilitation. He is a psychiatrist and has done work in bio-ethics. Fortanasce is well acquainted with Alzheimers. His father developed it and later, on a trip to Italy, he discovered that there is a long history of this condition in his family. One senses that his research into how to prevent and/or delay Alzheimers is not just a casual thing. He is involved.
Fortanasce has divided his Anti-Alzheimers program into four steps:
Step 1 is based on nutrition. Dr. Fortanasce offers specific advice as well as general guidelines for daily food intake. Many of the ideas have been said before, eg. low glycemic index but here you will find out the reasons why these guidelines are important for brain health and the avoidance building up amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in your brain.
Step 2 -is about exercise, the aerobic kind. You probably heard some of this before. In fact, it is the mainstay of the book, Growing Younger Next Year Here, you find the reasons why aerobic exercise is important if you want to preserve your cognitive skills.
Step 3 - is about Neurobics. Challenging our brains, keeping socially connected etc. Nerobics should be part of every day - every single day.
Step 4 - is about stress reduction and just how much sleep is necessary to insure brain longevity.
This book is important for those in their forties - adults caught up in jobs, family etc. They have enough time to make a change in lifestyle that will keep their brains healthy and memories good until the day they die. Those in their fifties or sixties need to start this four step program immediately.
And if you have begun to notice changes in memory - forgetting where you put things, missing appointments, losing a word or two when you speak - the information in this book is crucial.
And the Anti-Alzheimers Prescription is encouraging. It let's you know that there are somethings we can do - the big A does not need to hang over your head.
You can take steps to prevent this dread condition - even if you have a family history of it. I do recommend this book. It is one of the best published so far.
