Trying to decide what to get your loved-ones for Christmas? How about a chance at life?
That’s sounds trifling.
It’s not. You really could help save the life of a family member (in the near future or years later) with a simple Christmas gift that will educate them on the prevention and/or treatment of a disease they face or could face in the future.
These gifts (most under $50) could help save the life of someone you love very much if they’re suffering from diabetes, clinical depression, Alzheimer’s disease, or cancer.
Note: All of these gifts are something a member of my family has at least some personal experience with although I have not personally reviewed them all.

Depression: The Way Out by Neil Nedley, M.D.
Yes, depression kills. Sometimes quickly, as in the case of suicide, sometimes slowly, eating away at a person’s health day by day.
This book is overwhelming to someone suffering deep depression but perfect for family and friends who want to truly understand what’s going on. It’s a well-researched textbook from a Christian perspective.
“Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer’s Disease. In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive decline. “
Alzheimer’s isn’t quite as scary as it used to be. If you want to help a family member actually conquer cognitive decline (in the early stages) this is one place to start. Dr. Bredesen is on the cutting edge of research into actual reversal of symptoms. You can find out more here.
Here’s a news clip about Dr. Bredesen and his new book:
The Truth About Cancer
Cancer is scary. But what if there is more to the story than we ever knew?
Apparently, there is.
Go here to watch the trailer for The Truth About Cancer’s 9-part documentary (and get more info about the documentary itself).
