Description : Written to encourage defensive action, Levine's book is meant both as a guide and a reference to understanding and preventing dementia. It is intended for lay people interested in learning about dementia and the measures that can be taken to repel its onslaught, as well as for caregivers and family members of impaired patients. "Defying Dementia" is presented in two sections. First, Levine explains the various types of dementia, its increasing incidence and current treatments, and the treatments being tested and on the horizon. The role of physiology and fresh insights from the field of genetics are included. The second section focuses on methods that can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle to help avoid dementia. How do we motivate individuals to take action or change behavior in response to a possible threat that has not yet materialized? When the threat is dementia, argues longtime neurologist Robert Levine, it is an issue of considerable importance. The earlier the campaign is initiated to defeat this lurking foe, the greater the chances the combatant will emerge victorious. Written to encourage such defensive action, Levine's book is meant both as a guide and a reference to understanding and preventing dementia. It is intended for lay people interested in learning about dementia and the measures that can be taken to repel its onslaught, as well as for caregivers and family members of impaired patients. "Defying Dementia" is presented in two sections. First, Levine explains the various types of dementia, its increasing incidence and current treatments, and the treatments being tested and on the horizon. The role of physiology and fresh insights from the field of genetics are included. The second section focuses on methods that can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle to help avoid dementia. Vignettes illustrate how dementia in its many forms can be recognized as it emerges. With proper actions on our part, we can achieve mastery, Levine writes. The transformation may not be easy, but recognizing the scourge that dementia is, and the way it devours the humanity of its victims, may inspire us to move ahead. Preparation is the key word; building solid defenses over time. And while any moment is worthwhile to begin this task, the earlier the better.

Description : ABCs of Alzheimer's Disease: a Shared Reality by Me and My Shadow is a story of Bruce and Ethel's Alzheimer's disease (AD) journey, along with a history of AD from autopsies to PET scan research, including technology and genetic discoveries. The book is a realistic, short, comprehensive, evidence-based, description of Alzheimer's disease (AD). It describes AD research, including clinical trials, a simplified understanding of the brain, and the experiences of patient/caregiver persistence and journey as well as hope for the future research possibilities through worldwide basic science, biology, genetic, mathematics, and technology evolution and discoveries. In addition, it identifies AD issues, uncertainties, and author's comments, along with "outside the box" ideas for governance to provide leadership for the coming Alzheimer's disease tsunami. With the future facing an AD tsunami and potential shortage of care personnel, the book provides potential for education and/or training for candidate patients, caregivers, primary care doctors, nurses, physician assistants, license nurse practitioners, certified nurse assistant, institutional care personnel, in-home health personnel, hospital personnel, educators, and politicians. In addition, this book could be a supplement document for geriatric schooling as well as an enlightening and educating source for political leaders (all three branches of government) and their staffs. The book describes a stage by stage behavior symptoms tied to cognitive measures and Alzheimer Association warning signs, along with suggestions for caregiver, relative to patient's state of decline. The book addresses why clinical trials have been failing and why hope for delay and prevention may be forthcoming as well as the 2011 paradigm shift and current presymptomatic candidacy. Clinical trials adventures, along with a suggestion to eliminate the placebo cohort group are described. So, what does the future hold for Alzheimer's disease-hope, promises, delay, prevention, or cure? These are all wants. What is reality? Moving research targets are being addressed and pursued with evolving knowledge and tools. This evolution will probably make current targets obsolete in twenty years. For reality, you be the judge after reading this book. "Out the box" ideas are provided that require governance action for confronting the coming AD tsunami and associated diversity care.

Description : Activity Techniques Summary Although Alzheimer's is a progressive and irreversible disease, I've found that through proper application of therapeutic activities the progression of behavioral effects caused by memory decline can be delayed and, in some cases the symptoms can be reduced.Implementing an activities program for residents with Alzheimer's is usually a challenging and difficult task. Often there are barriers of mistrust, fear, anxiety, low self-esteem and self-confidence, resentment and confusion that must be overcome. Even the most caring attempts to be helpful or to communicate are sometimes met with outbursts of anger, resistance, or complete withdrawal. With my approach, I believe that activity therapy can reduce the negative behavioral effects caused by Alzheimer's disease and have a positive effect on memory function.My common-sense approach, using practical and logical therapeutic activities, can easily improve the quality of life for those affected by Alzheimer's disease. Each approach is tailored to individual needs by utilizing mental and physical skills the person still possesses and adjusted to skills as they change.It's not enough to love and care for someone and wants them to get better. It takes learning about Alzheimer's disease and its affects, believing in your ability to make significant improvements, and having enough patience and dedication to achieve positive results.Sometimes the only way to deal with stress is to find humor in one's situation. When it comes to dealing with Alzheimer's disease, a smile often works better than words. Humor and light-heartedness are often the best medicine for the stress the disease brings to you and the person you're caring for.Who Can Benefit? Whether you utilize the services of an Alzheimer therapist or shoulder the burden yourself, this book is essential in providing the most appropriate caregiving plan; including helping you select the most effective caregiver for your loved one. This book provides easy to understand and apply activities utilizing readily available materials. Seventy percent of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease are cared for at home.Caregivers providing care for their loved one at home This book can be used by caregivers who do not have a professional caregiving background. The forms are designed to assist you in collecting useful data about the individual you are caring for and show.Furthermore, when considering residential care, you will know how to assess the treatment program and gain understanding of the basics of a successful activities program. Friends and Family Members The information in this book will help you improve the quality of your visit. Even occasional visitors will understand what to expect and when visiting. This activity program provides guidelines to successful communication skills and techniques that help repair damaged relationships. Professional caregivers As a professional caregiver, you will gain insight by observing actual case studies showing how I work with individuals with dementia. You will learn new methodologies and concepts that have worked with hundreds of persons in all stages of the disease. Understanding the principles behind the design of these activities will complement and enhance your own activities and techniques.

Description : Invited to appear as an expert on the topic of Alzheimer's and dementia on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW, Dr. Jay Sordean, LAc, OMD expands upon his segments seen on TV stations all around the country in this concise and purposeful book. Do you believe that your brain is reading this description? If you said "Yes!" to yourself, that shows you the power that your brain possesses. So would you agree that your brain is your greatest asset and should be treated as such? That is the foundation belief of this book. So how do you go about taking care of your brain as if it is worth more than its weight in diamonds? What are you feeding your body? We have these amazing bodies, and these amazing systems called the brain and nervous system. So if you had a high end car (maybe you do), would you put low grade fuel in it or even would you put dirt and sand in it? Well, of course you wouldn't. So why would you put a steady diet of chips and fast food in your body? It, and your brain, is worth WAY MORE than the most expensive automobile. Interestingly, in the horse racing world, some people feed their horses more expensive food than they feed their children!! That makes no sense at all. Don't you think that your children are worth more than an animal? Of course, a particular food being expensive does not mean that it is necessarily really high quality, but you get what we are talking about. Are you spending lots of time reading about how you take care of your garden and car but are neglecting knowing about your brain and how to cultivate your children's brains? Your brain is your most important asset. Assessing the status of your brain early and often is the best way to spot early degeneration. Prevention of degeneration, dementia, and Alzheimer's risk is possible with 7 key memory care actions -- including combating obesity, blood sugar metabolism imbalance, inflammation, addressing multiple head injuries, proper nutrition, avoiding sugar, remembering names, improving blood circulation with NRCT and acupuncture, removing toxins from the body, preventing toxins from getting in the body, and preserving and honing sexual activity. NRCT is neurologic relief center technique and focuses on meningeal compression. Learn more about meningeal compression, NRCT, neurologic relief technique and the other methods necessary for everyone to improve their brain and increase their chances to avoid Alzheimer's and dementia, based on the latest of scientific studies. Obesity is epidemic. Physical toxicity is epidemic. ADHD is epidemic. Autism is epidemic. Diabetes is epidemic. Why so many epidemics? Could they all be related? Scientific studies and literature clearly show the connections between obesity, toxicity, immune dysfunction, sugar imbalances and degeneration of the brain. The degeneration of the brain, and the imbalanced development of the various parts of the brain are underlying factors related to autism, ADHD, diabetes, Alzheimer's and dementia. While the Alzheimer's Association states that there are many factors related to Alzheimer's, this book focuses on the key and primary factors that everyone has the ability to do something about to blunt the super-epidemics that are the results of modern lifestyles. Purchase this book and the companion book, "Super Brain: Maximize Your Brain Health for a Better Life" and you qualify for a discount on the comprehensive brain function consultation and evaluation by the author, Dr. Jay Sordean, LAc, OMD, QME.

Description : Invited to appear as an expert on the topic of Alzheimer's and dementia on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW, Dr. Jay Sordean, LAc, OMD explains how your brain works and how you can train it to work even better. Do you believe that your brain is reading this description? If you said "Yes!" to yourself, that shows you the power that your brain possesses. So would you agree that your brain is your greatest asset and should be treated as such? The premise of this book is that your brain is your most important asset. Both your IQ and EQ are the result of the functioning of your brain. Every aspect of your life and who you are is mediated by your central nervous system - the brain and spinal cord. Like the CPU of a computer, if your body's CPU goes wonky, functioning will suffer as a result. Alzheimer's and dementia, as well as other degenerative brain diseases and conditions are directly related to how well you take care of your brain. How well your brain operates, the levels you can achieve in communication with loved ones, at work, and at play all can be devasted, or enhanced, by how you take care of or neglect your brain. Alzheimer's and dementia, as well as Parkinson's, diabetic coma, and alcoholic dementia are in your control perhaps more than you realize. This book helps you take control. Assessing the status of your brain early and often is the best way to spot early degeneration. Enhancing your brain power is an on-going process that starts pre-birth and continues for the rest of your life. But your typical doctor does not do this for you -- that is why you need to read this book and find doctors who can be your personal brain coach. If you have a life coach, a personal trainer, or a therapist, you need to add a brain coach and expert . In the first chapters of "Super Brain: Maximize Your Brain Health for a Better Life," Dr. Jay explores with you the basic principles of how your brain develops, with suggestions then on how to enhance your brain functioning -- this can help avoid dementia and Alzheimer's, AND also to improve productivity, creativity and your relationships. Prevention of degeneration, dementia, and Alzheimer's risk is possible -- while not guaranteed. Tried and true as well as new discoveries in the world of brain study and behavioral studies show that many factors are involved, including combating obesity, blood sugar metabolism imbalance, inflammation, addressing multiple head injuries, proper nutrition, avoiding sugar, remembering names, improving blood circulation with NRCT (Neurologic Relief Center Technique) and acupuncture, removing toxins from the body, preventing toxins from getting in the body, and preserving and honing sexual activity. NRCT is neurologic relief center technique and focuses on meningeal compression. Learn more about meningeal compression, NRCT, neurologic relief technique and the other methods necessary for everyone to improve their brain and increase their chances to avoid Alzheimer's and dementia, based on the latest of scientific studies. Learn about supplements that can combat the ravages of modern life and can help you clear toxins from your body. Reliable sources for safe and scientifically researched supplements are offered.
