The Alzheimer's Diet

The new book, The Alzheimer's Diet by Harvard-trained Neurologist Dr. Richard Isaacson and Nutrition-expert Dr. Christopher Ochner (Columbia University), expands on the 9-Week Diet Plan detailed in "Alzheimer's Treatment Alzheimer's Prevention: A Patient and Family Guide, 2012". This easy-to-follow book details specific dietary changes that may help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease (AD)

The new book reviews what to eat, what not to eat, and highlights a step-by-step approach of scientifically-studied ways to improve memory and protect the brain. The diet aims to reduce Alzheimer's risk, enhance memory, and improve overall brain and body health. The book features examples of what Dr. Isaacson recommends to his AD patients for treatment, as well as to family members for possible prevention. The authors have recommended their approach to countless patients, caregivers and even their own family members.

Until a cure is found, the best we can do is to try to prevent and fight AD by using as many effective tools as possible. Although none of these tools will by itself prevent or cure AD, science now shows that diet is one of these essential strategies. Read our blog for more info, including a story on how and why diet works for AD.

The AD-NTS™ has been formatted to follow the 9-Week Diet Plan outlined in The Alzheimer's Diet book by Drs. Isaacson and Ochner, and also includes week-by-week specific tracking metrics such as recording of favorite brain unhealthy snacks and meals, as well as Challenges and Potential Solutions. Customized reports can be printed, which help track progress as well as make it easy to communicate information at doctor's visits and nutrition consultations.
