The problem facing may people in the coming decades is that of loss of cognition, and for those already facing this reality it may be of some comfort to know that a lifestyle approach has generated very positive recovery of function using a simple set of interventions. Published in the journal Aging This report describes a novel, comprehensive, and personalised therapeutic program that is based on the underlying pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease, and which involves multiple modalities designed to achieve metabolic enhancement for neurodegeneration (MEND).

The results of the study appeared online October 10 in Neuroscience Letters.
It’s well known that the brains of mediators change, but it’s not entirely clear what those changes mean or how the changes might benefit the mediator. A new pilot study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre suggests that the brain changes associated with meditation and stress reduction may play an important role in slowing the progression of age-related cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia’s.

The potential cognitive gains linked to the role of gastrointestinal bacteria continues to attract international interest. The scientific community are becoming entranced with the notion that our bacterial exposure affects not only the local tissues, but also others including the brain.
Exposure to specific bacteria in the environment, already believed to have antidepressant qualities, could increase learning behaviour. Mice fed live cultures of Mycobacterium vaccae were able to learn and complete a maze twice as fast as control mice were the key comments delivered at the 110th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology last week.
Mycobacterium vaccae is a natural soil bacterium which people likely ingest or breath in when they spend time in nature,” says Dorothy Matthews of The Sage Colleges in Troy, New York, who conducted the research with her colleague Susan Jenks.

This evening seminar will take the gathering understanding of the role of our mitochondria as sentinels of metabolic and immune dysfunction and how lifestyle including food and food concentrates are able to either increase or decrease their viability. As our understanding of the molecular influence of food continues to grow, significant understandings become all the more important in our delivery of advice and recommendations. You may think that this subject is too esoteric or removed from every day clinical life, but never has an area of application been more relevant to almost all the clients or people that you support. Delivered in an easy to appreciate format with clinical applicability, we feel confident that this will enhance your confidence and improve your outcomes. We will be recording the event for people attending and those unable to travel..Click for further information
