This is a poignant collection of personal experiences, moving from confusion, loneliness, and fear to understanding and peace. Knowledge of resources and connecting with others who are, or have been, faced with this consuming task help you find your way through the maze of many unanticipated challenges. Finding the support of others is critical to achieving acceptance of this life-changing event. With a sprinkling of humor, this becomes a story of the power of love, allowing you to survive it. “The Other Side of Alzheimer’s is written with honesty, sensitivity, and love. Every experience describes the physical, mental, and emotional challenges, while alluding to humor and hope. There are few published resources that deal with feelings of a spouse faced with a partner’s Alzheimer’s disease, and none I have read as good as this one. I found it to be a beautiful love story that any reader can appreciate.” —Carol Long, RN-BC Board Certified Gerontological Nurse Sozo Senior Wellness, Raleigh, North Carolina “Ms. Ellis has written a beautiful, insightful account of the journey through Alzheimer’s. It reveals how love, understanding and the acceptance of change can overcome any adversity. It applies to us all as we navigate through the ebb and flow of a significant relationship.” —Karen Brisendine Retired Electronics Industry Business Manager Caregiver “Martha-Lee Ellis has written a touching memoir that approaches Alzheimer’s from a wife’s perspective of a scary and unpredictable course. The Other Side of Alzheimer’s offers a lifeline to others going through this experience, enabling them to see that they are not alone. This story has something to benefit anyone facing this disease with their spouse.” —Michelle S. Brovitz, MS PA American Society of Clinical Pathologists Former Pathologist’s Assistant for hospitals nationwide

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Beating Alzheimer’s is considered by many to be impossible. But incredible as it may seem, the man who wrote this book was given the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, a diagnosis as dreaded as cancer to most people, and reversed his devastating symptoms. Traditional medicine, with all of its modern technology and thousands of “wonder” drugs, has failed to solve the most tragic illness, one which causes you to be sentenced for the rest of your life to a world of increasing forgetfulness, and to become a burden to those around you, unable to dress or feed yourself, not recognizing your children or your spouse when they walk into the room. How is it, then, that Tom Warren was able to recover from such an incurable disease and now lives a meaningful, useful life? Tom had to take responsibility for his health into his own hands and, through extensive reading, was able to find the crucial steps that led to his recovery. Now his step-by-step plan is available for everyone.

This book was released on 2016-02-04 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Alzheimer’s Catastrophe portrays the attempts and failures of the medical and research establishment to find an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and exposes the significant deficiencies of long term care. More than five million Americans currently have Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to triple by 2050. The first case of Alzheimer’s was described more than one hundred years ago yet there is still no clear understanding of what causes this devastating disease. With no effective medical treatments, patients and their families may turn to long term care facilities which often fall short in providing quality care. The Alzheimer’s Catastrophe chronicles past and current areas of research but also reveals some less publicized issues such as the use of chemical restraints in nursing homes, instances of profit driven maneuvers of pharmaceutical companies, and the controversies related to screening tests.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first proven plan to reverse Alzheimer’s Disease. In The End of Alzheimer’s Dr Dale Bredesen offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s Disease and the cognitive decline of dementia. Revealing that AD is not one condition but in fact three, he outlines 36 metabolic factors, including micronutrients, hormone levels and sleep, which together can trigger downsizing in the brain. Dr Bredesen then outlines a proven, step-by-step protocol to rebalance these factors, which patients can follow with the help of a healthcare professional (note: blood tests are required in order to tailor individual plans). There are also general lifestyle and dietary changes all readers can adopt to improve cognitive health. - Rewrites the science of Alzheimer’s Disease - Proven step-by-step advice to follow with your doctor - Offers real hope to patients, carers and health professionals - The first major breakthrough to stop Alzheimer’s in its tracks Survival rates in many life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, have been steadily improving for years. But until now nobody had ever survived Alzheimer's Disease. The results, however, of Dr Bredesen’s protocol are impressive: of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement within three to six months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Dr Bredesen is also focusing on training UK healthcare professionals in his protocol with a further 200 professionals set to receive training this coming spring.

This book was released on 2013-03-09 with total page 386 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alzheimer's disease afflicts up to 1 in 5 people over the age of 65 years and causes untold suffering of the patient and their family. The cause of this disease is unknown; indeed, evidence increasingly suggests that there may be multiple Alzheimer-type syndromes with different etiologies, analogous to different types of psychosis. Currently there are no means to prevent the disease, slow its progress or reverse its neurodegenerative consequences. With few exceptions, clinical trials of a variety of compounds have resulted in patient responses that are disappointing with respect to both the proportion of responders and the magnitude of the responses. Novel approaches to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease are clearly warranted. For this reason, we organized the First Suncoast Workshop on the Neurobiology of Aging in St. Petersburg, Florida, which took place from February 26-March 1, 1989. This workshop focused on novel treatments and models for Alzheimer's disease and represented a cooperative venture among academia, government and industry, both in its participants and sponsorship. The Center for the Neurobiology of Aging at the University of Florida, the National Institute on Aging and Taiho Pharmaceutical Corporation in Japan sponsored the workshop in which scientists from the North America, Europe, Japan and other parts of Asia participated.

This book was released on 2021-09-28 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With the heartfelt prose of a loving daughter, Patti Davis provides a life raft for the caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients. “For the decade of my father’s illness, I felt as if I was floating in the deep end, tossed by waves, carried by currents, but not drowning,” writes Patti Davis in this searingly honest and deeply moving account of the challenges involved in taking care of someone stricken with Alzheimer’s. When her father, the fortieth president of the United States, announced his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in an address to the American public in 1994, the world had not yet begun speaking about this cruel, mysterious disease. Yet overnight, Ronald Reagan and his immediate family became the face of Alzheimer’s, and Davis, once content to keep her family at arm’s length, quickly moved across the country to be present during “the journey that would take [him] into the sunset of [his] life.” Empowered by all she learned from caring for her father—about the nature of the illness, but also about the loss of a parent—Davis founded a support group for the family members and friends of Alzheimer’s patients. Along with a medically trained cofacilitator, she met with hundreds of exhausted and devastated attendees to talk through their pain and confusion. While Davis was aware that her own circumstances were uniquely fortunate, she knew there were universal truths about dementia, and even surprising gifts to be found in a long goodbye. With Floating in the Deep End, Davis draws on a welter of experiences to provide a singular account of battling Alzheimer’s. Eloquently woven with personal anecdotes and helpful advice tailored specifically for the overlooked caregiver, this essential guide covers every potential stage of the disease from the initial diagnosis through the ultimate passing and beyond. Including such tips as how to keep a loved one hygienic, and careful responses for when they drift to a time gone by, Davis always stresses the emotional milestones that come with slow-burning grief. Along the way, Davis shares how her own fractured family came together. With unflinching candor, she recalls when her mother, Nancy, who for decades could not show her children compassion or vulnerability, suddenly broke down in her arms. Davis also offers tender moments in which her father, a fabled movie star whom she always longed to know better, revealed his true self—always kind, even when he couldn’t recognize his own daughter. An inherently wise work that promises to become a classic, Floating in the Deep End ultimately provides hope to struggling families while elegantly illuminating the fragile human condition.
