Product Description:

According to the National Institute on Aging, there are currently four million sufferers of Alzheimer’s disease in the United States. This number is expected to increase to 15 million by the year 2050. Despite these startling figures, very few resources are available for patients and their loved ones. The Everything® Alzheimer’s Book provides authoritative information on the disease, its symptoms, current treatments, and effective management. This comprehensive book includes a primer on basic brain function and thorough descriptions of the symptoms of the disease, which can include memory loss, disorientation, and delusions.

About the author:

Dr. Carolyn Dean is one of the few pioneers who bridges the gap between allopathic and alternative medicine by training as a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor. She attended Dalhousie Medical School in Nova Scotia and graduated in 1978. She is also a graduate of Ontario Naturopathic College and presently on the board of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. Dr. Dean began practicing integrative medicine long before the term was invented. Diet and lifestyle counseling have always formed the foundation of her practice. Since 1993 she has been researching a medical modality which includes diet, herbs and homeopathy to treat the layers of toxins and infection in the body
