Memory Maintenance – On Zoom
Dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease are on the rise. More than 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. That is 1 in 8 people! By the time you begin to show symptoms of cognitive impairment, you’ve actually been living with the disease 20 years!
There is good news! No matter your age, early intervention is key!
New breakthroughs in understanding brain function, neurogenesis, neuroplasticity and advances in functional and energy medicine are showing promising results. As well, lifestyle practices including yoga and meditation are key to brain health, improving memory, cognitive function and preventing Alzheimer’s and dementia.
