Dementia and other forms of neurodegeneration are not a part of the normal aging process. You should not expect to develop dementia as you grow older. The brain is fully capable of functioning normally for a lifetime, regardless of how long a person lives. While aging is a risk factor for neurodegeneration, it is not the cause! Dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are disease processes that can be prevented and successfully treated. This book outlines a program that is backed by decades of medical and clinical research that has proven successful in restoring mental function and improving both brain and overall health. You will learn how to prevent and even reverse symptoms associated with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Huntington's disease, epilepsy, diabetes, stroke, and various forms of dementia. The information in this book is useful not only for those who are suffering from neurodegenerative disease, but for anyone who wants to be spared from encountering these devastating afflictions. These diseases don't just happen overnight. They take years, often decades, to develop. In the case of Alzheimer's disease, approximately 70 percent the brain cells responsible for memory are destroyed before symptoms become noticeable. Once symptoms surface, the brain is already in an advanced stage of degeneration. You do not want to wait until most of your brain has died before you start to do something about it. You can stop Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases before they take over your life, but you must start now. "This is an important book which describes fundamental biochemical and physiologic processes that occur within us in a very readable fashion. As such, it demythologizes much current belief about causality of most degenerative diseases. Of particular importance is the discussion of fats, a much maligned source of sustenance, as well as correctly challenging the notion that the cause of many conditions is the lack of a pharmaceutical agent."--Jean R. Eckerly, MD "The book Stop Alzheimer's Now! by Dr. Bruce Fife is a must read for everyone concerned with Alzheimer's disease. After a comprehensive review of the factors contributing to the actual Alzheimer's epidemic, the author explains how diet modifications and the addition of coconut oil can drastically change the course of the disease." --Edmond Devroey, MD "Stop Alzheimer's Now! represents a major step forward in Alzheimer's disease, exposing the reality that Alzheimer's and other brain diseases are inflammation-related disorders and therefore can be effectively treated and potentially completely prevented by reversing inflammation through better nutrition and healthy lifestyles. Thank you Dr. Fife for writing a book that can inspire people to take a second look at what they eat."--Catherine Shanahan, MD "Dr. Fife has written a superlative treatise on the subject of medium chain triglycerides and the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases including: Alzheimer's disease (dementia), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Parkinson's disease. This seminal work is a 'must read' for any and all health care professionals, as well as any family members or friends of those stricken by these maladies. The meticulous research contained in Dr. Fife's manuscript is nothing short of 'miraculous.'"-- Jeffrey Grill, MD "This book describes, clearly and in a plain language, the mechanisms by which nutritional deficiencies damage the body. It also helps to understand the links between hypoxia, imbalances of carbohydrate turnover, environmental toxicity, and neurodegeneration. The author's dietary recommendations are a valuable aid to nutritional therapy of chronic neurodegenerative diseases. I recommend this enlightening book to both physicians and those who simply want to better understand how our brain functions."--Igor Bondarenko, MD, PhD
