Anacortes, WA (PressExposure) November 25, 2011 -- As baby boomers age, one out of eight will develop Alzheimer's, the only one of the top 10 causes of death in America with no cure. Because Alzheimer's can go on for several years after diagnosis, it extracts a high emotional and financial toll on both individuals with the disease and caregivers. In addition, Alzheimer's will place a huge strain on the health care system and Medicare.
Because there is no cure for Alzheimer's, leading researchers are now saying the best way to beat the disease is to prevent it in the first place. There is broad agreement that poor lifestyle choices, such as a poor diet and lack of physical or mental exercise, can make the difference between developing Alzheimer's or avoiding it.
Craig Wallin's new book, Keys to Alzheimer's Prevention, provides a simple and easy-to-follow plan to help anyone who wants to dodge Alzheimer's. The book contains five "keys" that make up the plan, ranging from exercise and diet to specific nutritional supplements that research has shown are effective in helping our brains stay young and flexible into our 70s, 80s and beyond.
Alzheimer's is often misdiagnosed if a person has vitamin deficiencies or is taking a prescription medication that produces side effects that can mimic dementia. The book covers these and 14 other common risk factors for Alzheimer's so readers can assess their degree of risk and take early preventive action.
Over 20 scientifically tested herbs, vitamins and nutraceuticals are covered, with information about what each does to help prevent Alzheimer's and revitalize the brain. In addition, new scientific research is covered, including natural substances which may slow or delay the progress of Alzheimer's. The book also includes 7 free Alzheimer's tests which can be taken at home or online.
Today, scientists are proving that memory loss, cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's are not inevitable. You can prevent them, slow or stop them, even reverse them with the five keys found in this book, including the best and safest natural ways to keep the brain fit for life.
