In recognition of International Brain Awareness Week, March 16th through March 22nd, the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation would like to share that they have been working toward the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease since 1993 using an integrative medical approach using diet, supplements, stress management, exercise, various types of mind/body exercise as well as medication to show that it takes a total program, not just a one drug approach to boost brain power now and to prevent memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease later.
Similar programs have been adapted by the Mayo Clinic, the University of Arizona, the Alzheimer’s Association Maintain Your Brain and other institutions over the year, but the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation was the first organization to offer the 4 Pillars of Prevention. Currently the Foundation is sponsoring research at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine’s Center for Spirituality and the Mind headed by Dr. Andrew Newberg on the effects of mind/body medicine on the brain with promising results. A paper will be published shortly with these results.
