The Edge Effect: Achieve Total Health and Longevity with the Balanced Brain Advantage could be as close to a fountain of youth as mankind will ever come, the truly scientific answer to how to reverse or prevent the debilitating effects of aging, including memory loss, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Eric Braverman, a leading figure in the practice of brain-body health care, reveals the dramatic impact that proper brain nourishment can have on the quality of our lives. His key to longevity and well-being is balancing the brain’s four important neurotransmitters.
A simple test determines which of the four is dominant in you, and what you can do to maintain the right balance, by modifying your diet with both foods and natural supplements. Proven effective for thousands of patients in Dr. Braverman’s practice, this groundbreaking approach will help anyone make the most of his or her life, free of the major illnesses (such as cancer and heart disease) and minor ailments as well.
This book is about achieving total health by balancing your brain chemistry, based on a quiz you take (in the book) to determine your dominant neurotransmitters. Once you take the quiz and find out which of the four major neurotransmitters is dominant, you can take supplements and eat foods that supposedly restore your brain’s normal biochemistry (normal meaning how it was before you started having symptoms of disease).
The author says everyone is born with a dominant neurotransmitter that determines their health and their personality, and when this gets out of balance, signs of illness begin. He lists the supplements you should take and the foods you should eat to get back in balance again, and also recommends some exercises, both physical and mental. At the end there is a section of exercises you can do to improve your memory.
Braverman is the Director of the Place for Achieving Total Health (PATH) in New York and Philadelphia, and the former Chief Clinical Researcher at the Princeton Brain Bio Center. He has appeared on numerous national radio and television programs, from “Larry King Live” to “The David Letterman Show.” He hosts “Total Health,” a live call-in radio program broadcast in New York and New Jersey. Dr. Braverman lives in Princeton, NJ.
