內容簡介

內容簡介 There is a looming threat, hovering like the Sword of Damocles. For whom the freaking bell tolls? We are all increasingly at grave risk for neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's, dementia, and Parkinson's - diseases that inflict a staggering toll on the afflicted and their loved ones. Most troubling, current pharmacological interventions are not cures and do not often provide needed relief. This book will inform and empower you to develop a plan of action to help you or your loved one fight against Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurological disorders. Informed by relevant research, this book shows that movement or exercise, particularly when combined with music, can have a powerful impact on brain health. The scientific research is also illuminated and amplified by the lived experiences of people whose stories reveal how movement, exercise, and dance therapy are helping them in the struggle against neurological disorders. Movement + Music = Medicine will increase your knowledge about the medicinal impact of rhythmic movement and give you greater confidence to make decisions that may improve your brain health. While movement, exercise, and dance are by no means cures for these cruel neurologic conditions, they may provide sorely needed relief and give you a fighting chance at a better quality of life.PRAISE FOR MOVEMENT + MUSIC = MEDICINE: FIGHT ALZHEIMER'S, DEMENTIA & PARKINSON'S*******************************************************************************************************************************************"This well-researched book with intriguing and insightful anecdotes makes a substantial contribution towards understanding how movement, particularly dance, may help slow the course of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. The book is especially relevant and timely, given the alarming increase in the two diseases - medical conditions often associated with aging but highly variable between patients. Movement + Music = Medicine is highly recommended for a general audience seeking to learn more about neurological disorders and how lifestyle changes, particularly movement, exercise, and dance, may make a difference."

SVC Emeritus, Health Sciences, Dean Emeritus, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh.*****"****************************************************************************************************************************************""Dr. Spectar has created a masterpiece combining the history of dance across culture and time and the evidence to support brain health and combatting neurodegenerative disease.... I am convinced, I will now be prescribing dance to my patients, for lasting limberness of the brain and the body."Mylynda B.
