Dean and Ayesha Sherzai

A unique husband and wife team on the cutting edge of brain science, Dr. Dean and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai are dedicated to educating people on the simple steps to long-term health and wellness through their work as Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, with patients, as well as through online writing, videos, and books.

There is a tsunami of diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s, stroke and Parkinson’s disease permeating our culture. In our own communities and families, we all have known at least one person suffering from these illnesses and in many cases seen the fallout first-hand. There is no treatment for these diseases, and the emotional, financial and social burden is immense. These diseases are thieves, stealing time, money and ravaging the minds of our loved ones. The Sherzais see scientists and physicians working furiously to find a cure or these diseases, and in this frantic race against time somehow, the big picture is usually lost among the molecules and chemicals related to the diseases.

As Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, the Sherzais, through research and their extensive collective medical backgrounds, work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Cognitive decline is something we all have to face as we age. The symptoms will be familiar to many of us. Our ability to carry out cognitive tasks as well as physical responses slows down. Our memories and our abstract reasoning decline. In addition to how we interact with the world while awake, our sleep patterns also change as we get older. It...

Five Gifts of Life For Your Loved One This Father’s Day

With Father’s Day here, we felt it essential that we touch on a poignant topic: the silent and rising epidemic of male suicide. Generation by generation, ideals and preconceptions are passed down, regarding the expected roles of men and women. Men are taught to put on a brave face, to provide without complaint and endure without seeking help. The...

Don’t Make New Year’s Resolutions, make a NEURO Resolution!

It's that time of the year again - time to take stock of what's not working in your life and make a solemn (and sometimes inebriated) commitment to change your behavior. The tradition apparently goes back at least as far as the Babylonians who at the beginning of the year vowed to the gods to return borrowed objects and pay their debts. Let's...
