What you eat helps you avoid it or live well with it!
In Ngaire’s trademark engaging and easy-reading style in this book she unravels the complex science of nutrition and brain health.
Eat To Cheat Dementia expands on the healthy brain chapter in the first book, summarising the latest research on what we can do to reduce our chance of cognitive decline and dementia, but also provides an invaluable resource for those living with a dementia diagnosis and the people who care about them. It provides practical strategies and advice to keep people enjoying independent lives as long as possible.
This is a book for anyone wanting to know where the science of maximising brain health is at and what can be done to head off future cognitive decline.
It is well known that currently there is no guaranteed way to avoid dementia nor is there yet a cure. But there is an immense amount that can be done. Eat To Cheat Dementia provides an understanding of the factors at play and how you can choose food to greatly benefit the health of your brain as well as your body to help keep it at bay.
But as well this is a book for those who are living with a dementia diagnosis, those they care about and who care about them. It provides a wealth of information, advice and strategies to help those living with dementia continue to enjoy maximum independence and quality in life and when they require additional assistance to be able to eat and enjoy food that is enticing as well as nourishing.
“I commonly see frail elderly people with multiple co-morbidities including dementia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, heart disease, gait and balance disorders who have associated severe malnutrition. Ngaire’s book is a very practical approach [with] easy steps to eliminate those risks and improve nutrition and health.”
“We are very lucky. This book is important for every older person, but also for each and every one of us as we relentlessly progress toward old age. We are what we eat. If we are to age well, we need to set down the framework now. Diet is simply critical to being healthy, to functioning well, and to dealing with the physical and mental stresses of our lives. For those in old age already and for those caring for them, there will be many new insights, and the reintroduction of some concepts we have forgotten or neglected. This book should be part of the library of every health professional, every person caring for an older friend or relative, and for every older person. We should read it, share it and put it into practice. I congratulate Ngaire on an important achievement.“
“Food was, and is my inspiration … Sharing meals is one of life’s great pleasures – I want people to live long and healthy lives being able to do that.”
