Join us for an evening with author Marilyn Walls and her new book, Mother's Secret: A Nutritionist's View of Family and Alzheimer's Disease on Thursday, June 14th at 7pm.

The sooner food and lifestyle choices are made to protect brain health, the better; especially considering degeneration can begin years, even decades, before symptoms. It is complicated to care for an elder and requires emotional and nutritional support for both the patient and the caregivers.This book focuses on this complexity, offering healthful advice as well as a compelling story. In telling my family story about Alzheimer's disease, I also discovered my mother's rich narrative. Her spoiled childhood in rural Mississippi during the Depression, the effects of World War II on her and her family, and her love for my father became larger as her short-term memory failed.

This hybrid book offers a confluence of personal events and relevant information about my Mother's descent into dementia. Think of the chapters as a rhythm, alternating science and memoir. Perhaps our experiences juxtoposed beside scientific knowledge will lend needed support to anyone facing these dilemmas.

Marilyn Walls has a masters in Nutrition from Bastyr University, the premiere alternative medical school in the U.S., where she was an adjunct professor. She has taught hundreds of other classes throughout the region, enlightening and entertaining the participants to make healthier food and lifestyle choices. Her articles can be found in several local publications.
