Whether you are concerned about dementia for yourself or are a caregiver for someone with dementia, these seminars will have information to help you reduce stress and lower your risk of dementia.
Sep. 21: A Natural Method for Brain Longevity The statistics are startling. Every 67 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. As baby boomers age, the numbers in the U.S. are predicted to skyrocket to 16 million by 2050. Women are particularly vulnerable; two-thirds of all Alzheimer’s patients are women. The Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation (ARPF) has conducted Alzheimer’s Prevention research for over 20 years. ARPF believes, based on their research, that Alzheimer’s can be prevented and effectively treated with natural methods. This workshop is designed to give you an overview of the 4 Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention and the research supporting it. In the workshops to follow, we will take a deep dive into each of the 4 Pillars. By the end of the program, you will have simple methods to use in your everyday life to help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s. Please join us for this free workshop!
Oct. 5: Stress ReductionWe all know that chronic stress has harmful consequences such as anxiety, depression and brain inflammation, all risk factors for premature cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s Disease. A growing body of scientific evidence supports the effectiveness of meditation as a stress management tool and, thus, as a pathway to dementia prevention. In this workshop, we will learn about a simple meditation technique called the Kirtan Kriya. It is easy to do and takes only 12 minutes a day. Research shows that this meditation has a positive impact on memory and overall wellness. Learn this simple, natural method to reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Oct. 19: Psycho-Social Well BeingLearn how socialization with like-minded people, patience, compassion, and a sense of purpose play a significant role in prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias. We will talk about the Blue Zones and common lifestyle habits of people from all over the world who live to be over 100 years old. Additionally, we will look at the personal and collective benefit of kindness for health and aging; identify obstacles to joy and explore ways to kindle emotional well-being.
Nov. 2: Physical and Mental ExerciseResearch shows that a combination of aerobic exercise and strength training reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease by a whopping 50%! Mental exercise or “brain aerobics” boost oxygen and blood flow to the brain resulting in bigger and healthier brains. Join us to learn about simple physical and mental exercises that will nourish both mind and body. The Brain Longevity® Yoga Exercises are simple to learn and can be done by anyone. You will discover easy movements, breathing practices and meditation techniques to rejuvenate body and mind and slow the aging process.
Nov. 16: Diet and Nutrition Extended TimeWe will explore The Brain Longevity® Prescription: How Food, Not Drugs, Prevents Alzheimer’s and May Reverse Memory Loss. Learn how diet and supplementation play a key role in brain health and dementia prevention. We will discuss the nutritional components that make up a brain longevity diet and the connection between memory, diet, and genetics. Learn about the dietary habits of people in the Blue Zones where people routinely live to be over 100 years of age. Finally, we will share some fun and healthy recipes and talk about the best ways to make brain enhancing dietary changes easy and appealing.
