<p><strong>A revolutionary, proven program for reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline from award winning neurologists and codirectors of the Brain Health and Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center</strong></p><p>Over 47 million people are currently living with Alzheimer鈥檚 disease worldwide. While all other major diseases are in decline, deaths from Alzheimer鈥檚 have increased radically. What you or your loved ones don鈥檛 yet know is that 90 percent of Alzheimer鈥檚 cases can be prevented.</p><p>Based on the largest clinical and observational study to date, neurologists and codirectors of the Brain Health and Alzheimer鈥檚 Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, offer in <em>The Alzheimer鈥檚 Solution </em>the first comprehensive program for preventing Alzheimer鈥檚 disease and improving cognitive function. Alzheimer鈥檚 disease isn鈥檛 a genetic inevitability, and a diagnosis does not need to come with a death sentence. Ninety percent of grandparents, parents, husbands, and wives can be spared. Ninety percent of us can avoid ever getting Alzheimer鈥檚, and for the 10 percent with strong genetic risk for cognitive decline, the disease can be delayed by ten to fifteen years. This isn鈥檛 an estimate or wishful thinking; it鈥檚 a percentage based on rigorous science and the remarkable results the Sherzais have seen firsthand in their clinic.</p><p>This much-needed revolutionary book reveals how the brain is a living universe, directly influenced by nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and engagement. In other words: what you feed it, how you treat it, when you challenge it, and the ways in which you allow it to rest. These factors are the pillars of the groundbreaking program you鈥檒l find in these pages, which features a personalized assessment for evaluating risk, a five-part program for prevention and symptom-reversal, and day-by-day guides for optimizing cognitive function. You can prevent Alzheimer鈥檚 disease from affecting you, your family, friends, and loved ones. Even with a diagnosis, you can reverse cognitive decline and add vibrant years to your life. The future of your brain is finally within your control.</p><p>聽</p>

<b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b> <br /> Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. <br /> Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.
