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.

Wake up someone's brain with every turn of the page in this delightfully engaging resource. Featuring evocative images of children, this picture book for adults is to be shared between a family (or professional) caregiver and a person with memory loss to encourage meaningful emotional connections and conversations through therapeutic brain stimulation. Research demonstrates that sensory integration in the brain reinforces and excites neural connections. Using the principles of sensory integration, occupational therapist Rae-Lynn Ziegler presents photographs that trigger multiple and varied sensory reactions: visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, gustatory, and vestibular and proprioceptive (motion and movement). Tested with people with middle to late Alzheimer's disease, Ziegler's work demonstrates that spending time with an interactive picture book can help keep people with memory loss connected and engaged.
