The most complete and up-to-date resource on the powerful benefits of nutritional supplements for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease • Provides an easy-to-follow program of supplements to optimize the benefits of Alzheimer’s treatment and maximize the impact of prevention strategies • Shows how standard treatments do not counteract the oxidative stress and chronic inflammation at the source of Alzheimer’s • Also addresses related complications and symptoms such as altered sleep patterns, memory impairment, and behavior changes like depression and anger In this practical scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and diabetes prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease. He details how the proper combinations of vitamin and antioxidant supplements can greatly increase the effectiveness of standard medical treatments for Alzheimer’s as well as delay or even prevent onset despite a family history of the disease. Prasad shows how oxidative stress and chronic inflammation play a significant role in the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. He provides an easy-to-follow daily supplement regime for multiple age groups to target free radical damage and inflammation and stop the progression of Alzheimer’s and related complications such as altered sleep patterns, memory impairment, and behavior changes like depression and anger. Reviewing the scientific research on supplements and Alzheimer’s, he debunks the flawed conclusions of the neurological community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective, revealing how their studies focused on specific micronutrients used alone rather than synergistic combinations. Offering the missing complement to the standard care of medications promoted by mainstream medicine, this guide provides a truly holistic approach to Alzheimer’s prevention, treatment, and care.

The most up-to-date resource on nutritional supplements for the prevention and improved management of concussive injury, TBI, and PTSD • Provides an easy-to-follow program of supplements to optimize the benefits of treatment programs and offer a method of prevention beyond the use of helmets • Shows how standard treatments do not address the oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, and high glutamate levels that promote brain injury progression • Explains how single micronutrients do not provide the same preventive benefits as the synergistic combinations explored in the book The human brain is highly complex. When brain injury strikes, whether from a blow to the head or the shock of physical or emotional trauma, successful treatment requires a multilevel approach, taking into account the health of the brain prior to injury. Multilevel, complementary treatment approaches can also be applied to strengthen the uninjured brain and help prevent neurological injury for those at high risk of concussion, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury. In this practical scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants and micronutrients to manage and prevent concussive injury, TBI, and PTSD. He explains that increased oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, and glutamate release are common underlying factors in these conditions and should be addressed for improved management. He debunks the flawed conclusions of the neurological community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective for these conditions, revealing how their studies focused on specific micronutrients rather than synergistic combinations. The author details his easy-to-follow supplement program to treat and prevent these injuries, outlining the correct daily amounts and proper combinations of vitamins, antioxidants, micronutrients, and polyphenolic compounds such as curcumin and resveratrol. Offering the missing complement to standard medical care of brain injury as well as a form of prevention beyond the use of helmets, this guide provides a truly holistic approach to the prevention and management of concussive injury, TBI, and PTSD.

The most complete and up-to-date resource on the powerful benefits of micronutrients for heart disease prevention and treatment • Provides an easy-to-follow program of nutritional supplements to halt the progression of heart disease and prevent its onset despite family history • Shows how merely changing your diet and activity level cannot fully counteract the chronic inflammation and free radical damage at the source of heart disease • Debunks flawed conclusions of the medical community that show vitamins and antioxidants to be ineffective for treatment of heart disease and high blood pressure In this practical scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and diabetes prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants and micronutrients to treat heart disease. He details how the proper combinations of vitamin and antioxidant supplements can greatly increase the effectiveness of standard medical treatments for heart disease as well as help balance cholesterol levels and blood pressure, minimize plaque and clot formation, reduce angina and atherosclerosis, and prevent onset of heart disease despite family history. Prasad shows how chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, homocysteine levels, and free radical damage are the chief culprits in the progression of heart disease and that merely changing your diet and activity level and regulating cholesterol and blood pressure cannot fully counteract an unhealthy internal state. He provides an easy-to-follow daily supplement regime for multiple age groups to target free radical damage and cell injury and stop the progression of heart disease and its related complications. Sharing the scientific data on familial heart disease and antioxidant use, he debunks the flawed conclusions of the medical community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective for heart disease, revealing how their studies focused on specific micronutrients rather than synergistic combinations. Offering the missing complement to the standard care of medications, diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes promoted by mainstream medicine, this guide provides a powerful approach to heart disease prevention, treatment, and care.

Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's Disease. Dale Bredesen, MD, offers hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline. Arguing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, Bredesen outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. He then shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene.
