#BookReview: Defeating Dementia by Dr. Richard Furman

14 May

Informative 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.

 

About the book:

Dementia. It’s one of the most dreaded conditions we face as we age. Many people claim they would rather be diagnosed with cancer than dementia or Alzheimer’s. What many don’t realize is that dementia is not a foregone conclusion as we get older. Our own lifestyle choices and habits can have a significant impact–for good or ill–on our chances of developing the disease. And that means there’s hope.

Drawing from the latest medical research, Dr. Richard Furman helps readers understand dementia and Alzheimer’s and shows them how to make three powerful lifestyle changes that can help decrease the probability of developing this disease. He explains how eating the right foods, exercising, and sustaining an ideal weight can dramatically reduce the likelihood of developing dementia in the first place, and even how it can slow the progression of the disease in someone who has already received a diagnosis.
