Willeumier, a neuroscientist specializing in brain function, injury, and disorders, details her research at the Amen Clinics with NFL players and other patients experiencing brain health impairments. Within this text, she provides pervasive explanations of how nutrition, exercise, hydration, the power of positive thought, and cognitive training can improve brain functions. She emphasizes that the recommendations detailed throughout her book are beneficial to adults at any age and has written the book to be accessible to all. Diagnoses addressed include the most invasive neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to everyday memory, concentration, and learning deficits. Each chapter is highlighted with real-life experiences of her patients and herself, the positive results of their therapy, and easily implemented dietary and activity changes to promote a brain-healthy lifestyle. She concludes with a motivating four-step starter process. A good complement to John Randolph’s The Brain Health Book and Sabina Brennan’s 100 Days to a Younger Brain.
VERDICT A beneficial overview of the brain, what we know about it, and what we’re still discovering.
