Product description


"An important work on the holistic principles of medical management involving Alzheimer's disease. A comprehensive guide for caregivers and anyone involved with this devastating disease." —Ronald Brenner, MDChief of Behavioral Health Service Line, Catholic Health Services, New York

"Dr. Sen's work is an important, provocative contribution to the field of neurology. I commend his book to any who are interested in Alzheimer's disease." —Benjamin Doolittle, MDDirector, Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program, Yale School of Medicine

"In this thoughtful and far-ranging book, Dr. Sen has raised the intriguing question of whether meditation, yoga, and spirituality could contribute to protecting the brains of our aging population from the ravages of illnesses like Alzheimer's disease. Weaving together history, interviews, the latest scientific literature, and vignettes from his own clinical practice—none more touching than the story of his patient with Alzheimer's disease calmed by his simple act of making her hospital room like home—Dr. Sen suggests that these holistic approaches could help to heal, in the broadest sense, the ills we all may confront. Excellent work!" —John W. Denninger, MD, PhDDirector of Research, Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital/Associate Director of the MGH-McLean Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program/Harvard Medical School

Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer's has been selected as a 2017 Nautilus Silver Award Winner in the category Religion/Spirituality on Eastern Thought. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
