Dear Friend:

An important new health resource is now available from Johns Hopkins, and because you’re a valued friend of Johns Hopkins, you’re among the first invited to benefit from it:

Introducing The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin:

A quarterly in-depth report on the latest scientific breakthroughs, research findings, and medical discoveries for safeguarding your brain against aging and memory loss.

The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin is the latest in a series of Johns Hopkins publications focused on providing in-depth, up-to-the-minute coverage of important health issues for those whose family histories or personal health objectives may require an extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and scientifically accurate presentation of current information related to a specific medical topic.

As Medical Editor of The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin, it’s my privilege to invite you to accept a risk-FREE subscription to this groundbreaking publication. Frankly, much of the information presented in the Bulletin has been the exclusive province of medical professionals — until now.

Who will benefit from a subscription to the
The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin?

If you’re approaching your forties or older… if you have any history of Alzheimer’s disease or related illnesses in your family… if a loved one or family member is presently facing or undergoing treatment for dementia… if you’re concerned because you’ve experienced recurring “senior moments”… or if you’re simply determined to maintain top mental acuity well into your later years, you’ll find the The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin an indispensable adjunct to your health care regimen.

To provide you with more in-depth coverage of new discoveries and treatment options, I’ve also taken the liberty of reserving a complimentary introductory portfolio of Special Reports for you:

Four FREE Johns Hopkins Memory Special Reports
included with your first issue.

Accept our invitation to become a subscriber today and your subscription will include four Memory Special Reports, shipped with your first issue, each devoted to a vital aspect of memory preservation and brain health:

FREE Special Report #1: Nutrition and Brain Power. New medical evidence suggests important dietary links that may impact mental functioning. Find out what the latest research says about foods and nutrients to consider adding to your diet — or eliminating from it.

FREE Special Report #2: Medications and the Brain. With so many new prescription drugs on the market, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to have the latest information on medicines that may impair memory and brain function. Your complimentary Medications and the Brain Special Report reports on the latest findings concerning drug interactions and side effects, as well as emerging “wonder” drugs — and a few unexpected herbal supplements — that may act as “brain superchargers,” enhancing memory and mental sharpness.

FREE Special Report #3: "The 36-Hour Day". Excerpted from my Johns Hopkins University Press book by the same name, The 36-Hour Day offers practical advice and recommendations for more effective caregiving for loved ones suffering from early or late-stage Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

FREE Special Report #4: Memory Boosters. Discover the latest preventive measures and self-tests that can help keep your mind sharper, stronger, and healthier.

A resource like no other — packed with late-breaking information, leading-edge research, news of promising new therapies, findings from the world’s foremost medical journals and conferences — and much more.

As medical editor of the The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin, working with renowned specialists in the field at one of the world’s most respected medical research centers, I enjoy a privileged perspective on effective new therapies, emerging breakthroughs, and newly-discovered preventive measures for those at risk for brain-related health challenges, or undergoing treatment for them. Unfortunately, this vital information is simply not readily available to the average medical consumer. Even many physicians may not have ready access to up-to-the-minute research in this highly specialized field.

The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin will alert you to new therapeutic options before they’re announced to the general public… upcoming clinical trials in which you or a loved one may be able to participate… revealing research on nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle influences, and diagnostic tools — plus the latest news from medical conferences around the world. In addition, our distinguished panel of experts will provide detailed answers to subscribers’ most pressing questions and concerns. Each and every issue will present in-depth reports with a single-minded focus on the preservation of your health and quality of life — yet free of esoteric medical jargon, so you can clearly understand the practical implications for you and your family.

As a subscriber to The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin, you’ll enjoy access to a wealth of life-changing information. For instance, you’ll find out about:

  • Recent studies of an ordinary kitchen spice that indicated a surprising reduction in the levels of Alzheimer’s-like plaque in the brains of mice — even with very low doses. New tests suggest this same spice may also stifle cancer.

  • Why you shouldn’t waste your money on expensive Alzheimer’s screening tests — especially the ones promoted on the Internet.

  • The good news about drinking. Studies show that moderate drinking has a protective effect against dementia. Get complete details in The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin.

  • Top-rated support resources for caregivers. If you’re caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, you already know how important a support network can be. Our experts recommend the best current options, along with phone numbers and Web addresses.

  • Why certain ethnic groups have a higher propensity for dementia — and important lifestyle changes that can lower the risk.

  • The importance of BDNF (brain-derived neuropathic factor) in reducing your risk of dementia — and how to increase your levels of this memory-boosting protein simply and easily.

  • The astonishing link between education level and your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Vitally important reading.

  • Memory enhancing exercises that work at any age. You can teach an old dog new tricks — and The Memory Disorders Bulletin shows you exactly how.

  • Prescription therapies for circulatory disorders recently revealed to cut your risk of developing memory loss significantly.

  • Is it Alzheimer’s disease? Ten warning signs to watch out for. If you observe them in yourself or a loved one, seek medical help immediately. The Memory Disorders Bulletin spells each of them out in detail.

  • New findings about health risks facing caregivers. People who care for a spouse suffering from dementia may develop impaired immune systems. Find out what to look out for — and what to do about it — in The Memory Disorders Bulletin.

  • How your daily activities, hobbies, and interests are an excellent predictor of your likelihood to develop dementia within the next five years.

  • The best ways to build up a “brain reserve” to help increase your resistance to neuro-degenerative diseases of the brain.

  • A $100 investment that could be your best protection against Alzheimer’s. An item easily found in sporting goods stores might be the smartest health investment you ever made.

  • Why your walking speed may be one of the best indicators of your risk for memory loss. Find out how to test yourself — and lower your risk for dementia.

  • The disturbing relationship between high blood pressure in mid-life and Alzheimer’s disease — and what you can do about it.

  • Three unexpected factors that can dramatically decrease your risk for dementia according to a Swedish study. People who had only one or none of these combined factors had a 60% greater risk for developing dementia than people who had two or three working in their favor.

  • How testosterone therapy improves memory in older men according to a recent study — suggesting a possible link between declining hormone levels and memory loss in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Simple strategies for choosing the right nursing home — including four key questions you absolutely need to ask.

And that barely scratches the surface. Each quarterly issue of The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin will be packed from cover to cover with practical, up-to-the-minute, life-changing information that can help you protect your brain from age-related decline — and better preserve the health of loved ones who may suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

An unprecedented panel of specialists brings you scientifically-validated health information fresh from the leading medical journals and conferences — written in plain English and mailed to your door four times a year!

Your subscription to The Johns Hopkins Memory Disorders Bulletin will provide you with a level of privileged health information previously unavailable in a single reliable source. Here’s what your subscription will include:

A unique forum in which Memory Disorders Bulletin readers pose questions about important health care decisions — and receive detailed, authoritative answers from top Johns Hopkins specialists. While we can’t guarantee that every single question will be answered, typical issues include as many as ten pages worth of readers’ questions and expert medical responses.
