The national bestseller, now in paperback! The breakthrough program for reversing and preventing aging, written by a leading medical specialist and media expert, is now available at a popular price.

This could be as close to a fountain of youth as mankind will ever come, the truly scientific answer to how to reverse or prevent the debilitating effects of aging, including memory loss, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and Alzheimer's.
Dr. Eric Braverman, a leading figure in the practice of brain-body health care, reveals the dramatic impact that proper brain nourishment can have on the quality of our lives. His key to longevity and well-being is balancing the brain's four important neurotransmitters. A simple test determines which of the four is dominant in you, and what you can do to maintain the right balance, by modifying your diet with both foods and natural supplements. Proven effective for thousands of patients in Dr. Braverman's practice, this groundbreaking approach will help anyone make the most of his or her life, free of the major illnesses (such as cancer and heart disease) and minor ailments as well.

The information in this book is invaluable. It is all there - everything you need to get yourself on track for a healthier and definitely happier life. The supplements have done wonders for calming me and helping me sleep. This is not a "once and done" endeavor. Continuous reading and referencing are important. It is an excellent source/manual to have on hand to allow you to educate yourself to attain optimal health. Not only do I have more energy but I am more motivated to do things I only thought about before. Read this book and change you life.

Eric Braverman MD in this just released book ¿The Edge Effect¿ (Sterling) believes that ¿singing or playing an instrument yourself is an active way in which you can increase GABA.¿
Dr. Braverman, also the force behind creating The Place for Achieving Total Health (PATH Medical in NYC and Penndel, PA) describes the biochemical GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) as having ¿a calming stabilizing effect on the brain¿ that ¿prevents us from being to `juiced¿, too quick, and therefore ineffective.¿ Other ¿natures¿ as he calls them, are ¿Powerful Dopamine¿, ¿Creative Acetylcholine¿ and ¿Playful Serotonin¿.
Listening to Eric Braverman¿s explain his ¿Head-First Medicine¿ approach sounds like the revolution medicine needs is here as does his extending the concept of menopause to the entire body by naming how the brain ages as ¿pauses¿: ¿Electropause (slowing of brainwave activity), Biopause, Pituitarypause, Sensorypause¿ or ¿Psychopause (changes in mood) and how the body ages as: ¿Thyropause, Thymopause, Cardiopause, Vasculopause, Pulmonopause, Adrenipause, Somatopause, Osteopause¿ and ¿Dermopause¿.
The complete program that explains how the brain controls the body¿s functions and how you can adjust and even augment its capabilities he's titled the ¿Edge Effect¿. First identify your own brain-dominant nature with the Braverman Nature Assessment (pages of multiple choice True or False questions), address your differences, focus on making the most of your primary nature then use the ¿Edge Effect¿ to experience higher performance - all in 270 pages!
Actor Ben Vereen is quoted on the back cover suggesting, ¿Everyone with a brain must buy this book,¿
