Turning Point Excerpt :

I have Alzheimer's disease and have improved to an amazing level. I cannot use the word cured, YET! This is my story. Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other memory loss issues this book could possibly help over 5 million other suffers of Alzheimer's. Every 66 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. By the year 2030, twenty percent of all people aged 65 and over will be diagnosed with the disease, a disease that produces pain not only for patients but also for their loved ones. Those who die from the disease often face a long journey before passing as there are seven main stages to Alzheimer's before death. In the final stage, individuals lose the ability to respond to their environment, carry on a conversation and, eventually, control movement. #Every66seconds #ENDALZ

Preventing Alzheimer s Disease Excerpt :

This booklet summarizes what scientists have learned so far and where research is headed. There is no definitive evidence yet about what can prevent Alzheimer's or age-related cognitive decline. What we do know is that a healthy lifestyle-one that includes a healthy diet, physical activity, appropriate weight, and no smoking-can maintain and improve overall health and well-being. Making healthy choices can also lower the risk of certain chronic diseases, like heart disease and diabetes, and scientists are very interested in the possibility that a healthy lifestyle might have a beneficial effect on Alzheimer's as well. In the meantime, as research continues to pinpoint what works to prevent Alzheimer's, people of all ages can benefit from taking positive steps to get and stay healthy.

The Problem of Alzheimer s Excerpt :

A definitive and compelling book on one of today's most prevalent illnesses. In 2020, an estimated 5.8 million Americans had Alzheimer’s, and more than half a million died because of the disease and its devastating complications. 16 million caregivers are responsible for paying as much as half of the $226 billion annual costs of their care. As more people live beyond their seventies and eighties, the number of patients will rise to an estimated 13.8 million by 2050. Part case studies, part meditation on the past, present and future of the disease, The Problem of Alzheimer's traces Alzheimer’s from its beginnings to its recognition as a crisis. While it is an unambiguous account of decades of missed opportunities and our health care systems’ failures to take action, it tells the story of the biomedical breakthroughs that may allow Alzheimer’s to finally be prevented and treated by medicine and also presents an argument for how we can live with dementia: the ways patients can reclaim their autonomy and redefine their sense of self, how families can support their loved ones, and the innovative reforms we can make as a society that would give caregivers and patients better quality of life. Rich in science, history, and characters, The Problem of Alzheimer's takes us inside laboratories, patients' homes, caregivers’ support groups, progressive care communities, and Jason Karlawish's own practice at the Penn Memory Center.

The End of Alzheimer s Excerpt :

The instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline. Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's Disease. In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline. Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, The End of Alzheimer’s outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene. The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer’s brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

Turning Point Excerpt :

The thirteen million women now between the ages of forty-five and fifty-four have focused attention on menopause as a major health issue and greatly increased the demand for information on this once taboo topic. In Turning Point, biologist and author, Sue Furman puts menopause into perspective as one of many hormone-driven events in the continuum of a women's physical and emotional growth. Furman takes a close look at the powerful influence hormones have on a woman's life, from bone growth and memory functions, to sometimes even swaying a woman's choice of Mr. Right. She then looks at the myriad symptoms that may arise around the time of menopause, including hot flashes, mood swings, migraine headaches, and palpitations, and explains exactly what is happening when these symptoms occur and how to alleviate or cope with them. Finally, Furman discusses the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and how simple life-style choices like good-nutrition and moderate exercise can have a significant impact on the menopause transition. Debunking the many myths and fears surrounding menopause by providing women with easy-to-grasp, reliable information, Turning Point helps women retain the peace of mind--and sense of humor--that can make menopause a healthy experience and allow women to move confidently into the second half of life.

Applied Data Analytic Techniques For Turning Points Research Excerpt :

This innovative volume demonstrates the use of a range of statistical approaches that examine "turning points" (a change in direction, magnitude, or meaning) in real data. Analytic techniques are illustrated with real longitudinal data from a variety of fields. As such the book will appeal to a variety of researchers including: Developmental researchers interested in identifying factors precipitating turning points at various life stages. Medical or substance abuse researchers looking for turning points in disease or recovery. Social researchers interested in estimating the effects of life experiences on subsequent behavioral changes. Interpersonal behavior researchers looking to identify turning points in relationships. Brain researchers needing to discriminate the onset of an experimentally produced process in a participant. The book opens with the goals and theoretical considerations in defining turning points. An overview of the methods presented in subsequent chapters is then provided. Chapter goals include discriminating "local" from long-term effects, identifying variables altering the connection between trajectories at different life stages, locating non-normative turning points, coping with practical distributional problems in trajectory analyses, and changes in the meaning and connections between variables in the transition to adulthood. From an applied perspective, the book explores such topics as antisocial/aggressive trajectories at different life stages, the impact of imprisonment on criminal behavior, family contact trajectories in the transition to adulthood, sustained effects of substance abuse, alternative models of bereavement, and identifying brain changes associated with the onset of a new brain process. Ideal for advanced students and researchers interested in identifying significant change in data in a variety of fields including psychology, medicine, education, political science, criminology, and sociology.

The End of Alzheimer s Excerpt :

The End of Alzheimer’s: The Brain and Beyond, Second Edition is the first comprehensive overview on the molecular basis of Alzheimer’s outside of the brain, merging the most recent findings within the field into a single book. It aims to educate the reader on the many overlooked aspects of Alzheimer’s disease that occur outside the brain. This book uniquely provides step-by-step, peer-reviewed evidence that the current research model may be misguided and that a new and emerging model is more accurate. It carefully outlines the molecular research in Alzheimer’s outside the brain and argues that a more thorough, whole-body diagnosis will provide better answers about its causes and lead to new treatments. It is beneficial to researchers who need to be apprised of the emerging science on the causes of Alzheimer’s, and will hopefully redirect many into new avenues of cellular research and discovery. Comprehensive literature-based summary of the current state of molecular Alzheimer’s disease research Details the shortcomings of the prevailing model and therapeutics in development Reviews blood-based biomarkers for Alzheimer’s and their link to amyloid- and Tau-independent causes outside the brain Describes the tissues outside the brain impacted by Alzheimer’s and the underlying molecular causes Explains the whole-body risks associated with Alzheimer’s, along with concomitant measures to slow or prevent the disease Provides a protocol to properly research, evaluate, measure, diagnose, and potentially treat Alzheimer’s patients

The Alzheimer Conundrum Excerpt :

Due to rapidly aging populations, the number of people worldwide experiencing dementia is increasing, and the projections are grim. Despite billions of dollars invested in medical research, no effective treatment has been discovered for Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia. The Alzheimer Conundrum exposes the predicaments embedded in current efforts to slow down or halt Alzheimer’s disease through early detection of pre-symptomatic biological changes in healthy individuals. Based on a meticulous account of the history of Alzheimer’s disease and extensive in-depth interviews, Margaret Lock highlights the limitations and the dissent associated with biomarker detection. Lock argues that basic research must continue, but should be complemented by a public health approach to prevention that is economically feasible, more humane, and much more effective globally than one exclusively focused on an increasingly harried search for a cure.

Healthcare at a Turning Point Excerpt :

If the furious debate around the state of healthcare in the US has led to any consensus, it’s that the system should be delivering better quality for less cost than it does. The truth is that our healthcare system is a sprawling mix of competing interests in which those of the patient are valued least. Too much discussion has devolved to simplistic scapegoating, and too few comprehensive, constructive solutions have been offered. It’s time for a fresh vision. In straightforward language, Healthcare at a Turning Point: A Roadmap for Change outlines a new market-based business model that aligns industry financing mechanisms with the goals of prevention, improved quality, and reduced costs. Drawing on more than 25 years of cross-industry consulting experience, the authors: Articulate a market-based vision of the industry Examine past efforts to reduce costs, their failures and their unanticipated consequences Spotlight perverse incentives that distort the way the healthcare system operates and make it less than it could be Present concrete recommendations for change within the healthcare delivery, insurance, pharmaceutical, device and diagnostics sectors Explain the changes that employers, consumers and policy makers can make to create a more customer-responsive system that delivers more value For all the uncertainty in the current environment, there is also a rare opportunity to fundamentally redefine who wins in this market. Healthcare at a Turning Point provides guidance to executives ready for that contest as well as a roadmap for change.
