You Are Not Prisoner of Your DNA

Unfortunately, the belief that we are prisoners to our own DNA is used as a cop out from personal responsibility. It is also the first key thing that Dr. Dharma Sing Khaisa, who is the Founding President and Medical Director of the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation, would like every person to understand about his/her own brain, thinks that is commonly misunderstood. The second key thing is, “You can improve your brain function, regardless of your age and stage in life. He is an MD who has been working in this area for more than 20 years, and he says that he is more excited than ever about the possibilities for enhanced mental performance and brain longevity for everyone.

When he started his research he discovered that chronic stress , via release from the adrenal glands, kills brain cells by the thousands in the hippocampus, which is critical to memory performance. He realized that this could lead to Alzheimer’s Disease and other problems. He also knew from his own research and personal experience that lifestyle modifications, especially including yoga and meditation could remedy that. He is continuing his research looking into the integrative approach to the preventon of Alzheimer’s. He is especially interested in continuing to explore the multiple positive benefits of a simple brain-enhancing yoga meditation exercise called Kirtan Kriya, or KK.

He believes that it is important to champion the belief that lifestyle can influence brain fitness and to encourage people to make their brain health their top priority. Personally, he remembers to put his brain health first. He practices yoga and meditation every day, has a serious work out regimen five times a week, and watches his diet. As for mental exercise, he writes songs and plays music, which is also great fun.

This post reiterates the goals of the healthymemory blog, which is important to do periodically.
