An Innovative Program for a Better Memory and Sharper Mind

Publisher: Humanix Books
Category: Health & Fitness
Misplacing your keys, forgetting someone’s name at a party, or coming home from the market without the most important item — these are just some of the many common memory slips we all experience from time to time. But such cognitive lapses don’t just plague middle-agers and seniors; UCLA studies indicate that forgetfulness begins much earlier in life. Scientists can detect subtle changes in the brain that coincide with mental decline by the time we reach age 40, and our findings show that people as young as 20 already have memory problems. Dr. Gary Small and Gigi Vorgan’s 2 Weeks To A Younger Brain translates the latest brain science into practical strategies and exercises that yield quick and long- lasting benefits. It will not only improve your memory, but will also strengthen your physical health by reducing your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The latest research confirms that there is a lot we can do to boost our memory and keep our brains young. After three decades of helping thousands of patients improve their memory and mental acuity, Dr. Small and Gorgan are convinced that our daily lifestyle habits are directly linked to our brain health. This book will show that it only takes two weeks to form new habits that bolster cognitive abilities and help stave off, or even reverse, brain aging. If you commit only 14 days to 2 Weeks To A Younger Brain, you will reap noticeable results. During that brief period, you will have learned the secrets to keeping your brain young for the rest of your life.

Huntington is back again telling the naked truth about direct to brain windows! Have we ever had it so good? If you need to read books then you are being denied direct to brain windows! But people being denied D2BW still have rights. From the same author of "Big Science Secrets, Lies, and Mistakes", the book that shook the foundations of modern science, and "Direct to Brain Windows", the first book to expose the secret of D2BW and the "Neuron segregation", comes another timeless classic. Many will claim, for perhaps centuries, that it is crazy talk, but our own experience and the many hints of history tell the exact opposite story. Every time we hear that familiar jeer in our ear, feel an itch on our nose, our eyelid flicks, or our muscles do something we don't want them too...it could only be D2B! Ted takes us through all the aspects of D2B and remote neuron reading and writing that our parents (or their parents!) never told us. Is someone paying that co-worker to be so rude? Is there a reason you never get the date or the job? Do many people seem to know intimate details about you as if they get video from inside your home directly to their eyes? Yes, because they do and you don't! Huntington is the first person in the history of Earth to tell the secret of remote neuron reading and writing publicly, and in this book he explains many more secret details. One look and you'll get hooked just like a D2B consumer!

Denis Noble Nearly a decade after completion of the first draft of the entire Human Genome sequence we are in a better position to assess the nature and the consequences of that heroic achievement, which can be seen as the culmination of the molecular biological revolution of the second half of the twentieth century. The achievement itself was celebrated at the highest levels (President and Prime Minister) on both sides of the Atlantic, and rightly so. DNA sequencing has become sufficiently c- mon now, even to the extent of being used in law courts, that it is easy to forget how technically difficult it was and how cleverly the sequencing teams solved those problems in the exciting race to finish by the turn of the century [1, 2]. The fanfares were misplaced, however, in an important respect. The metaphors used to describe the project and its biological significance gave the impression to the public at large, and to many scientists themselves, that this sequence would reveal the secrets of life. DNA had already been likened to a computer program . The “genetic program” for life was therefore to be found in those sequences: A kind of map that had simply to be unfolded during development. The even more colo- ful “book of life” metaphor gave the promise that reading that book would lead to a veritable outpouring of new cures for diseases, hundreds of new drug targets, and a brave new world of medicine.
