About this item

A Comprehensive Metabolic & Lifestyle Approach A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in 2016 is startlingly similar to a half-century ago. Despite decades of research and millions of dollars invested in uncovering the causes and developing treatments for this devastating illness, progress has been slow, with each new "blockbuster" drug proving to be as big a disappointment as the ones that went before it. Today, an Alzheimer's diagnosis is a death sentence. However, there may be ways to prevent, delay, and possibly even reverse the course of this crippling neurodegenerative disease. In The Alzheimer's Antidote, Certified Nutrition Specialist Amy Berger presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention to combat Alzheimer's disease at its roots.

About the Author

Amy Berger

Amy Berger, MS, CNS, NTP, has a master's degree in human nutrition and is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. A proud U.S. Air Force veteran, Amy spent years doing what nutrition and health experts claimed were "all the right things" to lose weight and maintain optimal health, but failed to experience the expected results. Wanting to understand why the conventional advice about low-calorie, low-fat dieting and lots of exercise did not lead to the promised outcomes, she began researching physiology and biochemistry and came to learn that much of what we currently believe about "healthy diets" is misguided, and, in many cases, downright incorrect.

Having learned these lessons the hard way, she has dedicated her career to showing others that vibrant health does not require starvation, deprivation, or living at the gym. Men and women cannot live by lettuce alone. Real people need real food! Amy loves teaching people that they can lose weight, feel great, and *be healthy* while eating commonly "forbidden" - but delicious - foods, such as butter, red meat, bacon, and cheese. (Vegetables are great, too, but they're not the only game in town! And hey, a little red wine and dark chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!)

You can read her blog at www.tuitnutrition.com, where readers value her clever and humorous writing style, and her ability to translate scientific research jargon and gobbledygook into plain English. She writes on a broad range of topics, including insulin resistance, cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, and the madness that is the modern food supply. Low-carb? Paleo? Vegetarian? Pescetarian? Whichever strategy you choose, stick to the science! Amy is happy to remain true to her motto: "A source of sanity in the sea of nutritional madness."
