A healthy brain is the key to staying vibrant and alive for a long time, and in Use Your Brain to Change Your Age, bestselling author and brain expert Dr. Daniel G. Amen shares ten simple steps to boost your brain to help you live longer, look younger, and dramatically decrease your risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

Over the last twenty years at Amen Clinics, Dr. Amen has performed more than 70,000 brain scans on patients from ninety different countries. His brain imaging work has taught him that our brains typically become less active with age and we become more vulnerable to memory problems and depression. Yet, one of the most exciting lessons he has learned is that with a little forethought and a brain-smart plan, you can slow, or even reverse, the aging process in the brain.

Based on the approach that has helped thousands of people at Amen Clinics along with the most cutting-edge research, Dr. Amen’s breakthrough, easy-to-follow antiaging program shows you how to:

• Boost your memory, mood, attention, and energy
• Decrease your risk for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia
• Eat to live longer
• Reduce the outward signs of aging and make your skin more beautiful
• Promote the healing of brain damage due to injury, strokes, substance abuse, and toxic exposure
• Dramatically increase your chances of living longer and looking younger
• And much more.

By adopting the brain healthy strategies detailed in Use Your Brain to Change Your Age, you can outsmart your genes, put the brakes on aging, and even reverse the aging process. If you change your brain, you can change your life—and your age.

A comprehensive easy to understand and follow program to improve brain health while combating in brain aging.

I love the fact, that finally there are Drs, like Daniel Amen who wants to actively look at the brain and see what is broken and not in a hurry to pull out the prescription paid for a drug that I'll harm and not cure. No drug ever is beneficial that out weighs the risks and harm. And only considers a drug when all other options have been tried. Finally, someone who actually took his hypocritical oath serious to do no harm. For anyone who is serious to have a better brain and better body, this book is a very good jumping off point on the road to wellness. Comprehensive and easy to comprehend.

No matter what age, everyone who reads this book will feel identified and without doubt will find valuable insight to keep growing healthy in the body and soul. I definitely recommend everybody to buy this fantastic book.
