Healthy Brain For Life$14.99Add to cart
Dementia. It’s one of the most dreaded conditions we face as we age. Many people claim they would rather be diagnosed with cancer than Alzheimer’s. What many don’t realize is that dementia is not a forgone conclusion as we get older. Our own lifestyle choices and habits can have a significant impact–for good or ill–on our chances of developing the disease.
And that means there’s hope.
Drawing from the latest medical research, Dr. Richard Furman helps you understand dementia and Alzheimer’s and shows you how to make three powerful lifestyle changes that can help decrease the probability of developing this disease. He explains how eating the right foods, exercising, and sustaining an ideal weight can dramatically reduce the likelihood of developing dementia in the first place, and how these habits can even slow the progression of the disease in someone who has already received a diagnosis.
If you or your loved ones are concerned about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, let this book be your guide into a healthy future.
Your Cholesterol Matters (Reprinted)$12.99Add to cart
When it comes to our health, what we don’t know can harm us most. Eighty-five percent of people over the age of fifty have significant blockage in the arteries of their hearts without any symptoms. Two-thirds of the time, the initial symptom is a full-blown heart attack. Doctors tell patients to watch their diet, get regular exercise, and lose weight–but they also increasingly prescribe “cholesterol lowering” drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. The problem is that a daily pill only addresses one small part of the cholesterol problem.
Dr. Furman wants readers to understand what their cholesterol numbers mean, how best to change levels of both the “lethal” LDL cholesterol and “hero” HDL cholesterol, and how to adjust their lifestyles in order to stay off of expensive medications that don’t address the whole problem (and often have negative health-impacting side effects). Not only will Dr. Furman’s advice make them healthier in the short term, it will also enable them to have more control over the aging process, allowing them to live longer, better lives.
