countryhousewife5 Stars Out Of 5Hope for Alzheimer'sMay 24, 2018countryhousewifeQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Defeating Dementia by Richard Furman, MD, is an insightful look into the connection between Alzheimer's and artery health. The book explains dementia and the stages of Alzheimer's. It focuses on five risk factors, and changes that can be made now. The book is a mix of medical information and the journey of an Alzheimer's patient. While there is no cure for Alzheimer's, Defeating Dementia does offer hope. This book offers encouragement to families dealing with the disease or hoping to prevent it. The ending of the book brought back memories of my own grandmother and had me in tears. It did make me optimistic for the future.

KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Informative, powerful yet easy to readMay 24, 2018KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! What an informative yet easy to read book! The author intersperses medical information with stories and observations made of his own mother-in-law as she progressed through the stages of Alzheimers over the course of 15 years. The book is easy to read and understand much harder to actually practice in real life! But read it does give hope on how to ward off dementia.
As I read the book there were several things that struck me like What is good for the heart is good for the brain. And a high LDL cholesterol (the bad one) and being overweight would increase the chances for getting Alzheimers. Run from (red meat, cheese, butter, cream and fried foods) like your mental performance depends on it, because it does. So many people attribute everything to their genes. But even if you inherit some bad genes, you can still decrease your odds of developing Alzheimers.
Powerful, helpful words! This book is just a wealth of knowledge and I so highly recommend it! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review - all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Britney Adams4 Stars Out Of 5Defeating DementiaMay 15, 2018Britney AdamsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Informative and encouraging, Defeating Dementia is a helpful resource for those who want to know more about dementia and its many forms. Dispersing medical research and scientific findings with personal experiences, Dr. Furman helps readers gain a greater understanding of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Pointing out the correlation between our lifestyle choices and the likelihood of various forms of dementia, Dr. Furman offers measures that can be taken to prevent dementia, as well as slow the process if it has already begun. "Every one of us is affected today in some way by Alzheimer's dementia, though clearly some much more directly than others. Current trends suggest those connections will grow closer and more painfully personal with the passing of each year." Having read this book, I am more equipped and committed to preventing this dreaded diagnosis.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Very InformativeMay 11, 2018Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was an interesting and eye opening book. I thought that the author did a very good job of showing the connection between artery health and future issues with forms of dementia and Altzheimer's. The author highlights important reasons to be eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly to decrease the likelihood of dementia.
This subject matter is pretty heavy and I did have to take breaks between reading through sections of it because, let's face it, it is hard to think of this happening to yourself or a loved one someday.
I appreciated the numerous studies included and explained in this book, as well as the segments of the author's own personal experience with Altzheimer's through the decline of his mother-in-law's health years earlier. This added a personal touch to the book.
