The Maharishi AyurvedaSM Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease
The Raj Ayurveda Health Spa has developed programs to help prevent the onset of age-related cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's and memory loss, in collaboration with Alarik Arenander, Ph.D, director of the Brain Research Institute.
Early detection provides greater opportunity to delay or reverse the existing symptoms of these age-related cognitive disorders. While currently available drugs are somewhat effective in reducing some aspects of cognitive decline, they do not appear to have an impact on the course of Alzheimer's.
Changes in diet and lifestyle are currently the only proven means of affecting the onset and progression of Alzheimer's. The addition of Maharishi Ayurveda offers a comprehensive system of effective interventions beginning with early detection and preventive treatment program, such as The Raj Anti-Aging Program.
Alzheimer's starts early in life and progresses to noticeable declines in cognitive functions, such as memory gap or memory loss. Early diagnosis provides greater opportunity to delay or reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
The Raj's Ayurveda health team, trained in Maharishi Ayurveda, uses the ancient technique of pulse diagnosis to determine specific imbalances in the physiology, many of which can be asymptomatic. These imbalances could predispose an individual to the onset of Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders. This individual diagnosis is a powerful tool for designing the specific aspects of the treatment program and recommendations
Don't Let Your Brain "Dry Up"
Ayurveda states that with advancing age, the makeup of the brain and body gradually becomes more and more agitated and dry. Alzheimer’s is often associated with marked shrinkage of the brain. This "drying" effect is a powerful tendency that must be remedied by proper diet, digestion, routine, and rejuvenation programs offered at The Raj such as the Anti-Aging Program.
The Raj's Ayurveda Health Consultant also offers individualized recommendations to regain balance in the physiology, nourish the brain in the effort to counteract the natural "drying" influence of the brain, and establish optimum levels of mental and physical functions. The Raj Anti-Aging Program offers treatments of herbalized oils that create a deep nourishing influence to the brain and to the entire physiology.
