Prevention is the Best Cure
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) remains a burgeoning epidemic. The Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation (ARPF) has done extensive research on a simple 12-minute yoga meditation called Kirtan Kriya (KK), which means singing exercise. KK has been revealed to have a positive effect on memory in subjects with subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and stressed dementia caregivers, all risk factors for AD.
We are looking forward to our poster presentation on this Kirtan Kriya method at #AiA16. We are passionate about issues affecting the older adult population, and know that, in terms of Alzheimer’s Disease, prevention is the best cure. We will cover our important research studies on how Yoga Meditation Enhances Cognitive Function. To learn about this ground breaking research, come visit our presenter, Laura Kokoska, RN, on March 22 from 12:00 – 1:30pm in Exhibit Hall A, Board 710.
“The greatest breakthrough for Alzheimer’s disease in the past decade is the realization that – the way we live our life is critical to the quality of life and brain health as we age.”
