<b>The instant <i>New York Times</i>聽and <i>Wall Street Journal</i> bestseller<br /><br />A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer鈥檚 Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline.</b><br /> 聽<br /> Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's Disease.聽 <br /> 聽<br /> In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline.聽 Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, <i>The End of Alzheimer鈥檚</i> outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene. <br /> 聽<br /> The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, <i>The End of Alzheimer鈥檚</i> brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

<p>The thyroid is the new hot topic in health. Across age groups, from baby boomers and their parents to millennials and even children, more and more people 鈥攚omen especially 鈥攁re hearing that their thyroids are to blame for their fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs, and more. Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.</p><p>As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven鈥檛 gone away 鈥攑eople aren鈥檛 healing.

It鈥檚 something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that鈥檚 responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.</p><p>In <i>Medical Medium Thyroid Healing</i>, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what鈥檚 going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality. It鈥檚 an approach unlike any other, and as his millions of fans and followers will tell you, it鈥檚 the approach that gets results.</p>
