To lose yourself or a loved one to Alzheimer’s or Cancer is heartbreaking, but with the right knowledge and action, we can empower healing and some prevention.
A HIGHLY CANDID AND INTIMATE MEMOIR OF INVESTIGATION INTO DEVASTATING DISEASES LIKE CANCER AND ALZHEIMER’S.
Cancer such a common word and disease these days and Alzheimer’s there is not much known about it, so how do you prepare and what tools do you need to take action in healing and empowering your health? Your health is your responsibility and the more you know and do, the longer you live and healthier you will be.
There are two different paths of aging–and you can choose which one you take. Accountability or Neglect of Your Health?
A dynamic fusion of story and science, “Not Going Gently” offers a fresh look at Alzheimer’s and dementia from both personal and professional vantage points–and provides a plan for prevention. In this poignant mother-daughter memoir, Constance L. Vincent, tablets you, shares her mother’s experience and feelings living with Alzheimer’s as well as her own perspective both as a psychologist and a potential victim of the disease.
Most books about Alzheimer’s focus on only one aspect of the disease from either a scientific or personal perspective. Not Going Gently expertly melds the two into an all-inclusive portrait of the disease. Dr. Vincent describes her own age-related memory changes and compares them to Alzheimer’s–the warning signs, myths, risks, diagnosis, and stages of the disease. While she honestly addresses this devastating illness that affects millions of people and their loved ones, she also offers hope through groundbreaking discoveries in science. Dr. Vincent includes specific advice on the newest ideas in nutrition, lifestyle, and building a cognitive reserve that she is following to prevent Alzheimer’s and gives suggestions for more enlightened treatment.
Constance L. Vincent earned a Ph.D. at UC Irvine and taught classes in developmental psychology, especially psychology of aging, at two different universities. In addition to her book Not Going Gently about Alzheimer’s disease, she has edited the long-awaited Dr. Tom Wu’s Different Approach in Natural Healing: Conquer Cancer and Other Diseases with Simple Foods. Her husband got his life back because of Dr. Wu’s approach to food and lifestyle.
As the daughter of a father who suffered from dementia before he died and a mother who has Alzheimer’s disease, I likely have a genetic risk for these diseases. Although my role as a long-distance caregiver for my mother was limited, I devoured the research about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in order to learn the best diet, the best supplements, and the best activities that would help my mother, who was already showing signs of mild cognitive impairment. I wanted to fight back to save her from slipping into Alzheimer’s.
TUNE IN HERE FOR INSTANT LISTENING OF SHOW NOW
Unfortunately, I learned that the time to prevent dementia is now, while our brains are healthy and early prevention is still effective. Clearly, we have no time to waste. If I was too late to save my mother from Alzheimer’s, I still had time to use what I learned for myself. I’ll share the steps I’m taking now to fight against Alzheimer’s disease. I hope you’ll join me. Like my mother, I am “not going gently.”
Learn the steps you can do to prevent and or deal with cancer and Alzheimer’s, and what tools the family needs in dealing with a loved one who has it.
Constance and her husband Ed live in Menlo Park, CA. They have a blended family of a son, four daughters, and twelve grandchildren. The Vincents have always travelled extensively, but now their travels are mainly to visit their widespread family! They enjoy their book clubs, operas, symphonies, and movies.
Cancer is curable and preventable but we must be willing to make the changes necessary to heal ourselves and embrace wellness.
