Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary, proven program to prevent Alzheimer's disease and reverse the symptoms of cognitive decline, from two award-winning neurologists - the codirectors of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

Alzheimer's disease is devastating and increasingly widespread. More than 47 million people are living with Alzheimer's worldwide. Ten percent of adults over the age of 65 will develop some form of dementia, and doctors predict more than half of adults will be diagnosed with the disease by age 85. Despite the terrifying statistics, the truth is 90 percent of Alzheimer's cases are preventable through lifestyle factors.

Through rigorous clinical studies and research helping thousands of patients, Dean and Ayesha Sherzai - neurologists, researchers, and codirectors of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles - have uncovered the key lifestyle components contributing to this worldwide epidemic. They've also developed a solution - The Alzheimer's Prevention Program - to help you and your loved ones avoid developing this terrible disease and even reverse cognitive decline.

The human brain is a living universe that responds to what you feed it, how you treat it, when you challenge it, and the ways in which you allow it to rest. This much-needed, revolutionary audiobook shows you how to live in a way that promotes the health of your brain and your body and adds vibrant years to your life. With The Alzheimer's Solution, the future of your cognitive health is now within your control.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The second book you should read...

I read (listened to) the book, The End of Alzheimer's: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline first. Doing so added some science that was missing from this book. This book tends to focus more on ways to prevent Alzheimer's.Putting the two books together and listened to in my suggested order was very helpful for me and put the information into what felt like a very logical order. I do suggest reading both books.

My interest comes from a mother and brother that both suffer from the disease. Mom passed away last year. My brother likely does not have much time left. After spending the last 13 years as a part-time caregiver to the two of them, I felt the need to educate myself and do what I could to prevent the same thing from happening to me.

There is a lot that goes into supporting people with this disease. Having resources like the two books mentioned add considerable information and the ability to do something productive toward preventing some current and much future suffering.

My thanks to the authors!!

Only half the PDF included

The book is well read, very informative with real advice to change lifestyles. Biggest disappointment is it constantly refers to the included PDF BUT there is only half of the PDF included!! I have emailed audible who have made an effort to get it corrected, however the book provider refuses to correct this! Not acceptable when that is supposed to come with the book in all forms.

A wealth of information

So happy to have found this book. My mother has Alzheimer’s and I found that I have the APO e4 gene. Add that I’m a woman and I am looking for anything I can do to change my chances of getting Alzheimer’s. I’m very thankful to have this information and will try to implement as many of these ideas as I can. I’ve asked mom if she would change her diet which is full of sugar but she said if I took it from her she would just hide it. I bought her a recumbent bike but she won’t use it. So I don’t believe I can change her life’s course. But I will try to change mine

Some good / some weak

I would definitely rate this below ‘The End of Alzheimer’s’. The Sherzai’s provide some general best practices, but they also over-step what is known for sure. For example, they exude an odd level of antagonism towards the Paleo/ancestral/Primal lifestyle philosophy. While going vegan or vegetarian ‘might’ someday prove to be optimal in some ways, the authors should not take their eye off of the real enemy: excessive carbohydrates and simple sugars. I could not believe their continued embrace of grains. Again, I suspect this is a reflection of their vegan philosophy. They quoted studies that indicated that a purely plant based diet proved better by certain makers compared to a meat based diet, but they did not indicate if this study was comparing a meat diet that included our ‘standard American diet’. I was not convinced that the comparison was not just our SAD vs a vegan diet. The Paleo/ancestral/primal approach seems to eliminate the root cause of chronic illness, while at the same time being more acceptable/supportable to a larger portion of the population. This book seemed simplistic and rushed to the market when compared to fuller explanation, research, and discoveries shared by Dr Bredesen in his End of Alzheimer book. Both reinforce certain valid points and the Sherzai’s do provide a some helpful suggestions in a couple of areas, so you could make it a second book in your Alzheimer study. I personally recommend skipping it and moving on to the study of functional medicine, chronic disease, and your microbiome. These subjects are interwoven with the prevention of Alzheimer’s.
