As we grow older and experience the stresses of life, at about age 40 many of us begin to have trouble remembering things, concentrating, and generally staying mentally sharp. This book contains a four-part program including nutritional, stress-relieving, pharmacological, and mind-body exercise therapies to help people overcome the undesirable effects of normal brain "aging". By controlling cortisol, a hormone that is toxic to the brain and present in excessive levels as we age, Dr. Khalsa's plan can help improve memory and emotional zest.
-- This is the first book to:
-- describe a program that may diminish age-associated memory impairment
-- feature a clinical method that can promote memory functioning impaired by Alzheimer's disease
-- detail the physical damage done to the brain by stress, how it adversely affects memory and our other mental abilities, and what can be done about it.
