Can Adventure Prevent Dementia? A guide to outwitting Alzheimer’s
A meticulous doctor’s all-consuming search for the cure to her father’s Alzheimer’s leads to a discovery she did not expect.
Dementia need not be a disaster or a dread; instead, it can be a doorway to creating a smarter brain, stronger body and more fulfilling life.
Moment by moment, our brain is changing in response to everything we do, think, feel and experience. This is known as neuroplasticity. We are not passive victims of our genes, our past or our environment. We play an active role in how our brain develops throughout our life, and it’s never too late — or too early — to boost our brain, avert Alzheimer’s and defy dementia.
Dr Helena is one of the world’s leading experts on improving brain function and she draws on three decades of personal and professional experience to offer a new paradigm for enhancing our brain to enrich our life at every age.
Filled with groundbreaking scientific insights and laugh-out-loud stories of Dad and daughter’s adventure with dementia, Dr Helena reveals that education is more powerful than medication and we can all grow bolder rather than older.
This autobiographical page-turner reads like a neuro-thriller and shows how we can age better than we ever imagined.
Ageing is inevitable. Mental decline is not.
