From a Harvard- and Yale-trained neuropsychologist, a science-backed five-step program to boost memory and dramatically decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s.
American adults fear Alzheimer’s more than any other disease—including cancer—and because many don’t realize there is no genetic cause for 99 percent of Alzheimer’s cases, they don’t take the necessary steps to change lifestyle factors shown to significantly protect against the disease.
In this book, board-certified neuropsychologist Dr. Michelle Braun inspires you to make lasting improvements by explaining the truth about brain health and providing expert guidance through the maze of conflicting media advice on supplements, brain games, nutrition, and exercise. Braun interviews eight leading brain health experts, combining their insights with cutting-edge research to offer proven strategies to implement the five steps of the High-Octane Brain. Interactive exercises help you develop a personalized program for optimal brain health. Dr. Braun also provides a tracking system with a visual depiction of progress, and shows the High-Octane Brain plan in action through the lives of clients.
Packed with valuable tips you can implement immediately to minimize common “brain blips,” exercises to boost your memory within minutes, and inspiring insights from nine High-Octane Brain role models ages 44 to 103, this groundbreaking book helps put the future of your brain in your control.
