A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain shows you how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: bestselling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world’s foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.

In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask.
Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to:
-Use your brain instead of letting it use you
-Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain
-Reduce the risks of aging
-Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection
-Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss
-Overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity.
Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today.

Alzheimer’s in America
The Shriver Report
author Maria Shriver_2011
– 

Alzheimer’s in America examines the expected impact of the disease on the nation’s economy and society. As our 78 million baby boomers move into their mid-60s, we must make Alzheimer’s a national issue, a national priority. The report mines conclusions from an enormous and eye-opening national survey, the Alzheimer’s Association Women and Alzheimer’s poll.

Included in the report are searingly honest essays – some by public figures, some by everyday Americans – all sharing personal struggles with the disease as patients, caregivers and family members. We hear from women who actually have early-onset Alzheimer’s, from teen caregivers, and from men performing hands-on care at home for mothers and wives with advanced Alzheimer’s.

Essayists including Barbra Streisand, former First Lady Laura Bush, Patti(Reagan) Davis, football great Terrell Owens, Senator Barbara Mikulski,broadcasters Chris Matthews and Terry Moran and actress Soleil Moon Fryeshare deeply personal experiences with the disease in their families. And former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Dr. Mehmet Oz and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich talk about how the country is dealing with the Alzheimer’s epidemic, the caregiving crisis, and where we go from here.

DVD Review by Margo – 2009 on Amazon.com
My parents are in their 90s and we just assumed when they were in their 80s that senility/dementia was just something that came along with the territory of advanced age. The five years between 85 and 90 were the most painful years of all our lives. We had no information on Alzheimer’s, no specialty doctors (like geriatric medicine), no housing facilities that would take both of them — after 70 years of marriage they refused to be separated. We tried to get caregivers 24/7 but could only get untrained babysitters. And it cost a fortune. Then we viewed this wonderful documentary.We learned a thousand things about the disease that we didn’t know before. We learned what medications there are to slow down the disease. We learned that age is only one marker of the disease, as is heredity. The vignettes of the patients and families and doctors and caregivers are touching. They give the general audience an idea of what these people are going through. More important, though, is what the documentary tells us about our future as we age. Every man, woman, and adolescent ought to see this film to understand 1) what is happening to their dear ones and 2) the likelihood of your getting the disease.
As the documentary states, the brain is a muscle that can put out more neurons if it is oxygenated (exercise, exercise) and if one’s lifestyle is sedentary, the brain atrophies.
Please watch this, and tell everyone you know about it.
