Save Your Mind

Publisher: Barlow Publishing

This practical and informative book says that you can avoid dementia and the loss of control that accompanies this brain disease by following the author’s seven specific rules to exercise the brain and body. From the winner of Canada’s most prestigious science award, The Canada Gairdner Awards this book also offers an authoritative and easy-to-understand explanation of how the brain works and what happens when dementia afflicts it. Author Dr. Antoine Hakim tells about some of the mind-blowing research that shows how elderly nuns maintained their cognitive abilities even though their brains displayed the physical signs of Alzheimer’s. He argues that you can build up a defensive system, a cognitive reserve, to protect your mind if you have a stroke. It’s even possible to reverse the early signs of dementia. Save Your Mind is an essential book for anyone who wants to take proactive steps to prevent dementia and the loss of mental control.
