"Amy Berger elegantly explains how Alzheimer's, a devastating disease that has touched virtually every American family (or soon will), is much more than just a normal manifestation of growing old, and its management must include much more than just cholinesterase inhibiting drugs. She delves deep into Alzheimer's as a complex metabolic disease, one that can be greatly reduced, and likely avoided completely, with the right combination of lifestyle modifications within our control. Berger offers comprehensive treatment approaches that go way beyond what most patients are told by their physicians. This book is long overdue and a must-read for health care providers and laypeople alike."--David M. Brady, ND, CCN, DACBN, author of the Amazon bestseller The Fibro Fix; vice president for health sciences and director of the Nutrition Institute, University of Bridgeport
"A growing body of research suggests brain insulin resistance is strongly linked to Alzheimer's disease (AD). In The Alzheimer's Antidote, Amy Berger provides a clear understanding of the pathology of AD and explains how a low-carb, high-fat lifestyle can improve cognitive function and increase quality of life by providing an alternate fuel source for the Alzheimer's brain to use: ketone bodies. This exceptionally well-written, well-researched book is a must-read for family members and caregivers of people with AD."--Franziska Spritzler, RD, CDE
"Amy Berger brings a fresh, new perspective to the rising problem of Alzheimer's disease. She proposes a natural treatment that has, in my opinion, a far greater chance of clinical success than standard medications. The Alzheimer's Antidote is a terrific book."--Jason Fung, MD, author of The Obesity Code
"Magnificent. . . . The Alzheimer's Antidote harvests our most highly regarded, scientific research to create an empowering, user-friendly game plan that rewrites our health destiny. . . . This is a program for everyone, whether already diagnosed, at high risk, or even if there is no family history of this disease."--David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain, #1 New York Times Bestseller (from the Foreword)
"There are few things people fear more than cancer, with the possible exception of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. Not only does AD ultimately cut lives short, it effectively steals who the person 'is' long before they die. Traditional treatment methods have been lackluster at best, but there is hope. The Alzheimer's Antidote is a scientifically sound method of nutrition and lifestyle which combats AD at a molecular level. If you or someone you know suffers from AD, I highly recommend this book."--Robb Wolf, New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat
