Is it Alzheimer's? : 101 answers to your most pressing questions about memory loss and dementia

Peter V. Rabins

Health

It is normal to sometimes forget a name or a fact, or to wonder why we entered a room. It is also normal to begin having concerns about whether such lapses might be signs that something isn't quite right. In a structured Q&A format, Rabins (Johns Hopkins Univ. Sch. of Medicine) sets out to provide assistance. He offers answers to topics divided into seven broad areas: "Should I worry about my memory?"; "What is dementia?"; "Causes"; "Steps to try lowering the risk"; "Treatments"; "Suggestions for caregivers;" and "Difficult decisions for caregivers." Combining evidence from medical research, along with solutions developed from patient care experience, and technical information in straightforward language, the author points out where the research struggles and when seeking a support group might be the best option.

Health, Self Help

More than twenty years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn showed us the value of cultivating greater awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. Now, in The Healing Power of Mindfulness, he shares a cornucopia of specific examples as to how the cultivation of mindfulness can reshape your relationship with your own body and mind--explaining what we're learning about neuroplasticity and the brain, how meditation can affect our biology and our health, and what mindfulness can teach us about coming to terms with all sorts of life challenges, including our own mortality, so we can make the most of the moments that we have. Originally published in 2005 as part of a larger book titled Coming to Our Senses, The Healing Power of Mindfulness features a new foreword by the author and timely updates throughout the text. If you are interested in learning more about how mindfulness as a way of being can help us to heal, physically and emotionally, look no further than this deeply personal and also "deeply optimistic book, grounded in good science and filled with practical recommendations for moving in the right direction" (Andrew Weil, MD), from one of the pioneers of the worldwide mindfulness movement.
