Scott Mendelson is a psychiatrist living and working in Roseburg, Oregon  . He is the author of three non-fiction books, Metabolic Syndrome and Psychiatric Illness, Beyond Alzheimer’s: How to Avoid the Modern Epidemic of Dementia, and The Great Singapore Penis Panic and the Future of American Mass Hysteria.

What is the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia? Get an overview of each and learn about early symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment. The terms dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be confusing. Many people believe they are synonymous, but the two words mean different things. Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a specific disease.

This groundbreaking explanation of the causes and treatment of Alzheimer's disease rests on the author's belief that Alzheimer's is merely one of several types of dementia―and that in most cases dementia is avoidable. He further explains that the various forms of dementia may well be different manifestations of the same set of underlying problems. Rather than being the inevitable result of aging, the author asserts dementia is primarily the result of bad diet, stress, lack of mental and physical exercise, and other poor lifestyle choices. Dr. Mendelson begins his book with a straightforward explanation of how the brain ages―physically, structurally, and chemically. He then explains the various methods for diagnosing dementia, as well as how it can often be misdiagnosed if a person has suffered a head injury or stroke, has a hormone or vitamin deficiency, or is taking a medication whose side effects can mimic dementia. The remainder of the book is prescriptive, and offers hope to both Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers by recommending scientifically tested herbs, vitamins and nutraceuticals that can help mitigate or delay the effects of dementia. Finally, the author suggests lifestyle changes that might help a person avoid dementia altogether, commonsense health tips that include steps to prevent heart disease and diabetes, treatment for sleep apnea, maintaining an ideal body weight, and even engaging in a more active social life.

Whether you are a caregiver or simply an individual interested in the various forms of dementia and the methods by which you may help the afflicted or reduce your personal risks of your own aging, this book is for YOU. I recommend you first read Jean Carper's 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's; to provide a solid background to fully respect Dr. Scott D. Mendelson's book and its highly detailed and sourced presentation to avoid dementia and the approaching epidemic in our society. You will learn first hand how the breakdown of 'common sense' diet, nutritional, exercise, and personal hygiene abandons made by our society will develop into the worst malaise imaginable - and perhaps why deep in the design of our National Health Care Program the authors know what's coming and are insulating doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies from societal 'bad habits' that will continue to plaque health care. I will continue to reference this book and its future revisions to stay on track with my own health and that of friends who I don't wish to lose to this mind destructive matter.

I am a Social Worker assisting clients and families affected by dementia. I must say, Beyond Alzheimer's is the best book I have read on this topic. Dr. Mendelson's writing style keeps both the layman and professional in mind. The book provides easy to understand descriptions of the physiology of the brain as we age, causes of dementia, and preventative strategies - including well studied alternative approaches. Beyond Alzheimer's is very well researched, citing the most current data available. It is on the top of my list to recommend to both colleagues and clients.

  • Perius
Like his previous book "Metabolic Syndrome and Psychiatric Illness, Dr. Mendelson's new book BEYOND ALZHEIMERS - how to avoid the modern epidemic of dementia -ventures with great clarity to new conceptualizations of very important health issues. His insights are remarkable and I thoroughly enjoy his writing which I find compelling.
  • Wafi
Highly recommended for anyone interested in A) the definitions for Alzheimer's, Dementia and related issues, B) the causes of Dementia, and C) the many ways to help prevent and treat dementia. Great for both caregivers and those touched by dementia, as well as the layperson simply interested in enlightening him/herself about the realities of this crippling problem that is becoming more and more prevalent across the globe.
  • Mamuro
As a person with early-onset cognitive challenges I so appreciated Dr. Mendelson's approach. He has guided me through a maze of conflicting information. I recommend this book for the most current information on nutraceuticals and vitamins that may be helpful to improve quality of life for those of us with Alzheimer's in our families. I also heard him on Public Radio and I was glad that he values the neuro-protective prescription Selegiline.Beyond Alzheimer's: How to Avoid the Modern Epidemic of Dementia
