Use Your Brain To Change Your Age: Secrets to Look, Feel and Think Younger Every Day by Dr. Daniel G. Amen teaches patients the relationship between the standard blood chemistry and diseases of the body. There is a particular emphasis on the brain and diseases like Alzheimer’s and premature strokes. The book provides a website to utilize as a patient memory screen. 

Dr. Amen has collected up-to-date research from over seventy thousand brain scans to develop an innovative program which consists of ten simple anti-aging steps to decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s significantly. Other benefits of Dr. Amen’s research include methods to boost memory, mood, attention and energy. The author’s research also helps to heal brain damage due to toxic exposure, injury and strokes.

Dr. Amen advises patients to monitor out-of-range statistics in the blood panel; such as, the metabolics, HgA1C, Vitamin D levels, C-reactive protein, Testosterone, lipids, B12 and Folic Acid levels. The author suggests lowering the HgA1C level by losing weight, eliminating refined sugar and exercise. Fish oil, alpha lipoic acid and Vitamin D, curcumin, CO Q10, and ginkgo biloba are all good supplements to promote brain health.

Dr. Amen lists a whole host of powerful anti-oxidants in foods. The anti-oxidant properties of food can help to ward off a whole host of diseases. Examples are prunes, raisins, blueberries, cran, strawberries, spinach, brussel sprouts, broccoli, beets, avocado, red grapes and kiwis.

The protocols are simple to utilize and understand. There is a huge amount of scientific data which support Dr. Amen’s book. The Amen Clinics are another very good source of information.
