    - Betty Passet, York, PA

    “Caretaking for my 81 year-old mother with Alzheimer’s, I watched her functioning decline until we both started The Alzheimer’s Diet several months ago. Since then, I have seen her go from needing help with almost all daily activities to being able to dress and feed herself. Thank you!”

Great book! Highly recommend!!

My husband and I are creeping up on our 60's and growing concerned as there is a family history of this terrible disease on both sides. We both just finished our first read-through and are now reading it again as we both start the diet. Really great book overall; my husband and I are both floored by how much we have learned from reading it. We really appreciated that the authors are up front about the fact that this is not a miracle cure and that any diet takes effort- indicates that they're not just peddling something to make a buck. Also loved the fact that the things they recommend are based on science as opposed to somebody's opinion (there's so much garbage out there!). As a result, my husband and I are both super excited to begin our new brain-healthy lifestyle! Thanks!!

Since my aunt was diagnosed two years ago (first with "MCI" and now "early" Alzheimer's) my family has tried a variety of treatments. Searching on facebook, I found out about this book. As a nutrition student, this new approach to the treatment of disease is uplifting to myself and my family.

This book paints a very complete and easy to understand picture of all of the recent research. It's also interesting to note that many of the dietary recommendations are relevant to all of us, with or without AD. The last section of the book is specifically geared for treatment but much of the book is also geared for reducing Alzheimer's risk.

It is my observation that the authors of this book deeply understand the importance of a well-rounded and comprehensive approach to Alzheimer's care, and have made a complicated topic quite easy to understand and apply. Please do yourself a favor and buy this book!

I am a registered dietician and certified nutritionist working on an assisted-living facility with many Alzheimer's patients. With over 10 years experience with the population. I honestly didn't expect to learn a lot from this book but wow was I wrong. Not only did I learn a ton but I lent my copy to our lead physician who said he's even learning a lot! I'm really impressed and highly recommend this book to anyone caring for individuals with Alzheimer's.
