Alzheimer's Disease: Prevention, Intervention,
and Treatment

Elwood Cohen

Synopsis

Alzheimer's Disease: Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment demystifies the stories and hype surrounding this illness and shows how new research and technological advances have transformed Alzheimer's into a preventable condition. Along with our improved ability to diagnose the disease long before symptoms become obvious, this book offers strategies by which physician and family, working together, can better treat and eventually prevent the disease. Included are clinical hallmarks of the early, intermediate, and advanced stages of Alzheimer's; practical strategies that anyone can use to detect and manage the disease; diagnostic break-throughs--the newest tests, current drugs and those in development, advanced understanding of brain chemistry and physiology related to Alzheimer's, and physical and genetic markers of the disease; advice on how to be an advocate for your loved one throughout the medical management of the disease; and suggestions for taking care of your own needs and feelings when caring for someone with Alzheimer's. Combining the best of standard medical knowledge with cutting-edge homeopathic approaches, this essential resource, both pragmatic and hopeful, will maximize the quality of life for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.
