This revolutionary (and fascinating) book explains how we can postpone the aging of our brains and instead develop extraordinary brain longevity, with memory, concentration, energy, and learning ability even better than what we enjoy in our youth. The BRAIN LONGEVITY program is a four-step plan using modern complementary medicine, from Eastern and Western traditions, and including nutritional therapy, stress management, exercise therapy, and pharmacology, all designed to overcome "normal" brain....
Now, those seeking to restore faded powers (listen up, baby boomers) have a trio of brand-new advisers on doing just that. ...and journalist Stauth tell how to tone a sagging mind and stave off that curse of long life, Alzheimer's disease. Like fellow physicians Weil and Klatz, Khalsa proffers a program--brain-longevity therapy. Like Klatz, he targets a particular cause of the deterioration that his scheme addresses. But while too little human growth hormone gives rise to the problems Klatz addresses, too much of the hormone cortisol, produced by the body in response to stress and linked to brain damage, causes memory loss and lassitude in particular.
