Easy-to-understand science-based strategies to maximize your brain’s potential. Concerns about memory and other thinking skills are common, particularly in middle age and beyond. Due to worries about declining brain health, some seek out dubious products or supplements purportedly designed to improve memory and other cognitive abilities. Fortunately, scientific research has uncovered a clear- cut set of evidence- based activities and lifestyle choices that are inexpensive or free and known to promote brain and cognitive functioning. John Randolph translates this science in an engaging and accessible way, including the brain- boosting effects of exercise, social activity, mental stimulation, task management strategies, nutrition, and positive self-care. Interwoven with lessons from neuroscience, positive psychology, social and clinical psychology, and habit formation research are powerful self- coaching exercises designed to help the reader incorporate lifestyle changes that promote brain health.

While growing older is inevitable, many of the troubles we associate with aging--including dementia, disability, and an increased dependence on others--are not. The choices we make now can help us to maintain our vitality, a sharp mind, and our independence as we age. Filled with simple, everyday actions we can take to avoid disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late onset Alzheimer's, The Aging Brain is an easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout our lives. Based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, the interventions explained in this book not only prevent progression toward dementia even in those who have already shown mild cognitive impairment, they also reduce disability and depression and keep people living independently longer than those who do not practice these methods. For anyone hoping to slow the aging process, as well as anyone who acts as a caregiver to someone at risk of or already beginning to suffer from dementia and other age-related diseases, this book offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.

Now out in tradepaper is The Sugar Brain Fix (a revised and updated edition of Diet Rehab), in which best-selling author and brain-health expert, Dr. Mike Dow, shows how sugar affects brain chemistry and provides new research on dieting and hypnosis. What makes a healthy brain? The answer is simpler than you think. In Diet Rehab, Dr. Mike Dow shared a simple, yet powerful plan to help readers kick their food addictions. Since then, Dr. Dow has gone on to become a New York Times best-selling author and has continued to research and publish books extensively on improving brain health. Over the past five years, he's gathered even more data that shows how our standard American diet is harming our brains and our bodies--and what we can do about it. In 2015, the first human study linking the blood-sugar spiking Western diet and a smaller hippocampus was published. There is now scientific proof that sugar is shrinking the brain! With The Sugar Brain Fix, Dr. Dow takes a closer look at how sugar affects brain chemistry, and the ways we can fix it. The book features cutting-edge research and Dr. Dow's modified Mediterranean diet--the best diet for brain health and wellness. The Sugar Brain Fix will also incorporate research about hypnosis, and other activities to naturally boost brain health. At its core, The Sugar Brain Fix is a cognitive behavioral guide for boosting serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain with a new-and-improved diet and natural mind-set shifts, while improving overall health. The diet has a clinically proven, 3-prong approach: 1) eliminate sugar, 2) boost Mediterranean-diet-friendly fats, 3) increase probiotics.

Our biology is no longer destiny. Our genes respond to everything we do, according to the revolutionary new science of epigenetics. In other words, our inherited DNA doesn’t rigidly determine our health and disease prospects as the previous generation of geneticists believed. Especially in the last ten years, scientists have confirmed that the vast majority of our genes are actually fluid and dynamic. An endless supply of new studies prove that our health is an expression of how we live our lives—that what we eat and think and how we handle daily stress, plus the toxicity of our immediate environment—creates an internal biochemistry that can actually turn genes on or off. Managing these biochemical effects on our genome is the new key to radiant wellness and healthy longevity. Now gaining broad credibility among scientists, the study of epigenetics is at the forefront of modern medicine. According to the author, the real upshot of the epigenetic revolution is that it opens the door to what futurists call personalized medicine. For the first time in a trade book, Dr. Pelletier explains in layperson’s language the genetic biomarkers that will become the standard reference for measuring which specific lifestyle changes are required to optimize a given individual’s health. In the very near future, each person’s state-of-the-art genetic and epigenetic profile—matched with other precise indicators such as assays of the gut microbiome—will guide their daily health practices. This short but profound book by a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine introduces readers to this exciting new field, and reveals the steps that each of us can take today to change our genetic expression and thereby optimize our health for a lifetime.
