Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s?

Hello, Hello, my name is Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, and for the past two decades, I have been at the forefront of the fight to prevent brain aging, memory loss, and Alzheimer’s disease. I’d want to share with you that Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss are not inevitable consequences of growing older. As a matter of fact, medical study has discovered that how you live your life now may very well affect how your brainpower and memory function in the future. “Gold Caps are excellent quality. When I take these, I see a noticeable increase in energy.” Lynda D.

Body & Soul with Gail Harris

AgingWell: Memory and Movement Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa DharmaSingh Khalsa, M.D., is the founding director of the Acupuncture, StressMedicine and Chronic Pain Program at the Maricopa Medical Center inPhoenix. He is a conventionally trained American-born physician withan unconventional appearance and way of life. As a practicing Sikh,he wears a white turban and follows a holistic lifestyle that includesmeditation, yoga, and vegetarian living. In his bookBrain Longevity,he details the latest findings on brain research and offers a four-stepplan for combating memory loss.Body Soulcaught up with him in Arizona. “The greatestrisk factor for developing memory loss is age, and there’s nothing thatanybody can do about that. As we age, the risk increases. For those85 and older, there’s a 50 percent chance of developing memory loss.Other risk factors include family history and certain types of genetics.However, there are also risk factors that we can influence, such asstress, poor diet, and lack of exercise.”The firstprinciple of brain longevity is that the brain is flesh and blood likethe rest of the body. In fact, what works for the heart, works for thehead, with some variation. That’s very important. The latest researchshows that people who have a higher-fat diet and consume more caloriesare prone to develop many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer,and now Alzheimer’s disease. Countries with the highest intake of fatand calories have the highest incidence of Alzheimer’s.”Stress isa key risk factor for memory loss. Cortisol is a hormone released inresponse to chronic unbalanced stress that acts like battery acid inthe memory center of the brain, destroying brain cells over time. Whenwe lay down initial, or short-term memory, this involves the hippocampusor the memory center, which is very sensitive to cortisol. But it’sbeen shown that even the most simple, basic relaxation or meditationtechnique will lower cortisol and improve many areas of mental functioning.”In addition to theall-important stress management component of Dr. Khalsa’s brain longevityprogram, there is also nutritional therapy that includes dietary change,the use of natural medicinal tonics, and nutrient supplements. Exerciseis another key aspect of the plan, and along with a cardiovascular regimen,Khalsa also includes mental and mind/body exercises. The final partof his program is pharmaceutical medications, though for many people,especially those who have only mild age-associated memory loss or peoplewho are seeking only to improve their cognitive function, pharmaceuticaldrugs may not be required.”Every patientthat I’ve ever seen with memory loss has a low level of the hormoneDHEA. It’s a very mild male hormone, and as it goes down from its peakat age 30 to around age 80, what happens is degenerative diseases goup, whether it’s heart disease, arthritis, cancer, or memory loss. Soit’s believed by anti-aging physicians that if we replace DHEA levelsto a point where it is at age 30, we can in fact reverse some of thesefindings,” says Dr. Khalsa.But he cautionsagainst the unsupervised use of some newly available substances. “Whatreally bothers me the most is that anybody can go into a health foodstore and start taking DHEA. With DHEA there’s a very real concern becauseit affects a man’s prostate gland. It’s extremely important to monitorthe patient’s blood levels and the function of the prostrate.””People getexcited when I talk about drugs and hormones. I tell them, ‘This isnot a magic bullet.make up only 10 percent of the program. Iwant you to exercise first, I want you to improve your diet, take thesupplements and learn to do the meditation techniques in the mind/bodyexercises. Then only in certain advanced conditions, will we talk aboutthe drugs and hormones.'”BodySoulis currently airing Monday-Friday at 7:00pm and 8:30pm onPBS YOU.ProgramDescription Andrew Weil, M.D. Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D.Timeless Tai Chi Tell Me More home|programlist|tell me more|links|reading lis t|who we are|howit began|talk to us|companion book|program videos copyright � 1998-1999, Beacon Productions, Inc.

Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa: Keys To Longevity

Pioneering Integrative Approachesto Alzheimer’s Care Dharma Singh Khalsa, MD, is not shy about saying, “Itold you so.” As founding president/medical directorof the Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation Internationalin Tucson, AZ, and author of the books Brain Longevity, ThePain Cure, Meditation as Medicine, and Food as Medicine, Khalsasays, “I’ve always been ahead of the curve.” Consideringhow much nay-saying and even outright attacks his ideas abouthealth have generated over the years, it is hard to begrudgehim a little bragging, now that mainstream medicine has embracedmany of his theories.It has been a long road to recognition for Khalsa, whose integrativemedical approach to the brain and longevity incorporates meditation,stress reduction, diet modification, and the use of supplements.Not long after he established his foundation in 1993, a televisioncrew in search of a medical expose met him at his front door. “Isit true you’re trying to steal old people’s moneyby telling them you can help them stave off Alzheimer’sdisease?” the television anchorperson demanded to know. A lot has changed in the past 10 years. In May 2003, Khalsawas asked to testify before Congress about his integrative approachto preventing and treating Alzheimer’s disease. He alsomet with US Surgeon General Richard Carmona, MD. “He turnedto me and said, ‘Your work should now be considered mainstream,’” Khalsasays. “It was as if all my hard work of the past decadehad finally received the recognition it deserved.” Khalsa says he realized he wanted to treat patients—or “healingpartners,” as he calls them—with an integrativeapproach that utilized a range of healing modalities. Born inCleveland and raised in Florida, Khalsa graduated from CreightonUniversity School of Medicine in Omaha, NE, and trained in anesthesiologyat the University of California in San Francisco, where he heldthe prestigious post of chief resident and was on track to becominga professor of obstetrics.

Medicine and meditation are two different things. A tremendous desire and longing to relocate to New Mexico overcame Khalsa one day, he claims. He eventually settled in Albuquerque to work as a clinical anesthesiologist at Lovelace Medical Center. Khalsa had previously performed “basicstretchy” yoga in medical school, as well as transcendental meditation “for stress reduction and vitality” during his residency in San Francisco, when he discovered a Kundalini yoga studio and joined a class. He was immediately hooked.

“After about 10 minutes, I thought to myself, ‘Wow, that’s something I can use.’ I continued to attend the sessions, not realizing that they would have such a profound impact on my life.” He had grown increasingly interested in Kundalini yoga and the Sikh faith, which is practiced by many Kundalini practitioners, and he had accepted the Sikh religion himself.

  1. In meeting YogiBhajan, I had a profound spiritual awakening.” Others have had past-life or near-death experiences; but, this was an encounter that took place in the future, according to me.
  2. In his former position as chief resident in anesthesiology, Khalsa attended “the world’s most prestigious medical conferences,” he recalls.
  3. During his studies with Yogi Bhajan, he learned about alternative medicine, longevity, nutrition, vitamins, meditation, and yoga, among other things.
  4. Herbert Benson, whose best-selling book The Relaxation Response popularized the medical advantages of meditation among a broad audience.
  5. Khalsa also studied with renowned holistic nutritionist Bernard Jensen at his Hidden Valley Health Ranch, as well as with Paavo Airola, whose book How to Get Well pioneered the concept of food as medicine.
  6. In 1987, with the support of his developing expertise of integrative medicine, Khalsa assisted in the development of the Southwest’s first holistic pain program at Lovelace Hospital.
  7. According to Khalsa, as he began reading the literature on stress medicine, he came upon something that was both earth shattering and life changing.

As Khalsa explains, “I came to the idea that Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, whether age-related memory loss or what is today known as moderate cognitive impairment, are both diseases that are mostly caused by a person’s lifestyle choices.” In my opinion, it is unfortunate that the pharmaceutical industry is pouring billions of dollars into the development of a single magic bullet drug when 90% of the things that can be done to help prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s are things we can do for ourselves: eat right, take supplements, manage stress, and exercise.

Dr.Khalsa teaches a meditation class at theOmega Institute.
After reaching these conclusions, Khalsa and his wife Kirtimade it their mission to help people prevent and reverse memoryloss using a holistic or integrative medical program. In 1993,they formed the Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation International,a not-for-profit integrative medicine program devoted to preventingand reversing Alzheimer’s. Khalsa also became a foundingmember of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Four Keys to Greater Brain LongevityKhalsa’s methodsfor helping people achieve brain health and overall longevityrevolve around the idea that the brain is “flesh and bloodlike the rest of the body,” so “whatworks for the heart works for the head.” Topping Khalsa’slist of health recommendations is proper nutrition. He recommendseating copious amounts of fruits and vegetables while limitingfat to 15-20% of the diet. Those fats should be primarily unsaturated “goodfats,” particularly omega-3 fatty acids.Khalsa says supplementation is an important component of anydiet. Everyone, he says, should take a high-potency multivitaminand mineral supplement. In addition, he puts a scoop of theLife Extension Mix in his fruit smoothie every morning, alongwith his own Longevity Green Drink, which he says is similarto the green powders sold by Life Extension. “I drinkthat and I don’t think about food or energy until about12 o’clock,” says Khalsa.In addition to supplements such as vinpocetine, HuperzineA, and galantamine that Khalsa recommends for people who alreadyhave symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, he recommends severalbrain-specific and general anti-aging nutrients for people whowant to prevent the disease. Khalsa says vitamin E has beenshown to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. CoenzymeQ10 tops his list for heart and brain health. “One ofthe leading researchers on coenzyme Q10 told me they shouldput it in drinking water because it’s so powerful,” saysKhalsa. “It’s an indispensable brain-specific andantiaging nutrient.” He suggests alpha lipoic acid foroverall health and life extension.Khalsa also believes that there is strong evidence that ginkgois as effective as conventional medicine in helping to improvethe symptoms of dementia. “Contrary to what some of thelarge companies’ disinformation campaigns would have youbelieve, I think ginkgo does help people who already are ‘normal’ improvetheir cognitive function.” Another brain-longevity supplementthat Khalsa thinks has been overlooked by mainstream medicineis phosphatidylserine. “It fights cortisol and stress,and improves mood, neurotransmital function, and nutrients gettingto the brain cells,” says Khalsa. “It has been shownto slow memory loss. I think it is a tragedy that because thedrug companies can’t patent it, they don’t promoteit to the doctors.”The last supplement Khalsa recommends for everyone is DHAor other omega-3 fatty acids. “It is crucial to supplementyour diet with an omega-3,” Khalsa advises. “Itinsulates the nerve fibers, improves attention, concentration,and focus, and is very good for the heart, overall longevity,and anti-aging.”The second step in Khalsa’s program is stress reduction. “Thisis critically important because the chronic stress we’reunder releases cortisol from our adrenal glands, which in smallamounts we need to get out of bed in the morning but in largeamounts has been proven to turn your brain into a toxic dump,” saysKhalsa. “It’s like battery acid on the hippocampus,or memory center, of the brain. Chronic stress makes you fat,makes you have high blood pressure, and ruins your heart, immunesystem, and brain.” Of the many methods of stress reductionavailable, Khalsa first recommends meditation. “The onlything that has ever been shown to reduce cortisol is regularelicitation of the ‘relaxation response,’ or meditation,” hesays. “Meditation is the most natural form of anti-aginglongevity medicine. The body has an incredible ability to bringitself back into balance if we give it a chance, and meditationis the most powerful way to bring the body back into balance.”Third on Khalsa’s list is exercise, for both body andbrain. “It doesn’t have to be anything like runninga triathlon,” he says. “You can just walk brisklythree or four times a week for 30 minutes.” Khalsa sayscognitive exercises also are very important. He suggests discussingthe news, a book, or movie, doing puzzles, or reading a bookor magazine to stimulate the brain. He also recommends advancedmeditation involving breathing exercises, fingertip positions,and sounds, and says his preliminary research shows that thissort of mind-body exercise has a therapeutic effect on the brain.The last element in Khalsa’s brain-longevity regimenis drugs and hormones. Although he says many medications areoverused, he does not advise patients to get off drugs theyalready are taking. Khalsa believes hormone replacement is veryimportant and recommends replacing DHEA, pregnenolone, and testosterone.He also challenges recent studies questioning the safety ofestrogen replacement therapy. “I think if the studieswere done with a natural form of estrogen, you would not findthe negative consequences,” says Khalsa. “That’sjust my hunch.”In addition to his books, Khalsa publishes a monthly newsletter,The Healing Zone, which can be accessed at his website,.Information on the Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation Internationalcan be found by clicking on the organization’s website,.Khalsa will host a three-day brain longevity program in Tucsonin March 2004.Through his work, Khalsa hopes to prevent an “expensive,draining, horrible” future in which the number of peoplewith Alzheimer’s disease is expected to quadruple in thenext generation. “By following the program I put forth,we go in a different direction. We develop wisdom, spirituality,love, and the ability to give back to society and hopefullysomeday make this world a better place. That is one of the long-termeffects of following an anti-aging program.”

Medicine and meditation are two aspects of the same concept. A tremendous desire and longing to move to New Mexico overcame Khalsa one day, he claims. He eventually settled in Albuquerque and started working as a clinical anesthesiologist at Lovelace Medical Center. In medical school, Khalsa performed what he terms “basicstretchy” yoga, as well as transcendental meditation “for stress reduction and vitality” during his residency in San Francisco. While there, he came upon a Kundalini yoga studio and attended a session.

He had grown increasingly interested in Kundalini yoga and the Sikh faith, which is practiced by many Kundalini practitioners, and he eventually decided to accept it.

“I had a profound awakening when I met YogiBhajan.

When I realized this, I realized that I no longer needed to use powerful anesthetic drugs to put these people to sleep, but that I could use the new things I was learning—such as nutrition and supplements, stress management techniques, exercise, and the like—to help people wake up and heal their bodies, minds, and spirits.” “I realized I no longer needed to use powerful anesthetic drugs to put these people to sleep, but that I could use these new things I was learning—such as nutrition and supplements, stress management techniques He continued working as an anesthesiologist while concurrently pursuing a degree in integrative medicine, which he earned in 2012.

  1. I attended the highest-level medical conferences while I was a chief resident in anesthesiology,” adds Khalsa.
  2. During his studies with Yogi Bhajan, he learned about alternative medicine, longevity, nutrition, vitamins, meditation, and yoga, among other topics.
  3. Herbert Benson, whose best-selling book The Relaxation Response popularized the medical advantages of meditation among a broad public.
  4. In addition to continuing his medical education, Khalsa studied with renowned holistic nutritionist Bernard Jensen at his Hidden Valley Health Ranch, as well as with Paavo Airola, whose book How to Get Well pioneered the concept of food as medicine.
  5. The University of Arizona College of Medicine campus at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, where he served as founding director of the Acupuncture/Stress Medicine and Chronic Pain Program, was established in 1990.
  6. That discovery—that persistent stress induces the release of cortisol into the circulation, and that cortisol causes the death of cells in the brain’s memory center—has lately gained a great deal of attention in the mainstream medical community.

In my opinion, it is unfortunate that the pharmaceutical industry is pouring billions of dollars into the development of a single magic bullet drug when 90% of the things that can be done to help prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s are things we can do for ourselves: eat well, take supplements, manage stress, and exercise.

On May 2, 2021, a review will be conducted in the United States. Purchase that has been verified Since the publication of this book, I have given at least 20 copies as gifts to friends and family members. It is, without a doubt, the greatest book on the subject currently available! Despite the fact that I have never met Dr. Singh, his work with Alzheimer’s disease is well-known across the world, since he is the world’s foremost expert on the prevention and reversal of Alzheimer’s symptoms. Because he was the first member of the medical community to create the Alzheimer Prevention Foundation International, which is based in Tucson, I became aware of his work.

  • Singh is so well-liked and regarded in the medical world that he was invited to testify before Congress on the topic of an integrated medical approach to Alzheimer’s disease prevention.
  • This book is a must-read if you are concerned about your elderly parent’s memory; if you know someone who has Alzheimer’s and believe that there is nothing that can be done to help them; or if you are suffering your own bouts of infrequent memory loss.
  • If you or a member of your family has Alzheimer’s disease, your own chances of having the condition are increased as well.
  • When I was younger, I had no idea that memory loss may occur as we age or when we are under constant, excessive stress.
  • The medical research, on the other hand, is totally convincing in proving that the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other kinds of memory loss may be reduced and even reversed by rebuilding and expanding the connections between brain cells.
  • Singh’s previous writings have had a profound impact on my life, and I highly recommend them.
  • I strongly encourage you to look into this exciting new research and see whether it can benefit you or someone you care about.

In the United States, on August 22, 2016, a verified purchase was reviewed.

After taking a number of vitamins that were given to me, I see that my brain is repairing.

The writing is humorous, and the novel grows better with each page.

I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr.

Anyone experiencing signs of mental degeneration should read this book.

On August 18, 2015, it was reviewed in the United States and verified as a purchase.

Doctor Singh, who is always cordial and compassionate, prescribes precise formulations to help patients restore their mental health.

Furthermore, it emphasizes the fact that a healthy brain leads to a healthy heart and vice versa.

Personally, I like the book so much that I Xeroxed a whole copy for myself when it was originally released, which was some years ago.

My own perspective comes from 17 years of experience working in a library, and I believe it is neutral and objective.

Some books are truly priceless, and I would consider this to be one of them.

The photographs in this review On June 19, 2015, it was reviewed in the United States and verified as a purchase.

The activities in this book were the major reason for re-purchasing it in the first place.

Despite the fact that it was written in the late 1990s, the book remains one of my personal favorites.

It is not attempting to recreate the wheel or to sell you a boat when all you require is a paddling stroke.

And, while the phrase “Limitless” may seem fantastic (and it does), there will never be a health panacea other than food, exercise, and supplements in order to maintain good health.

(It does not exist in the real world.) As for the book’s quality, I purchased it used in good condition from one of Amazon’s verified sellers (with a good rating of 4.5 stars or above), and the description supplied accurately described the condition of the book when I received it.

There are no highlighted or damaged pages in this book; it is simply a fine, robust hardback. So, have pleasure in reading this amazing book. I hope you find this review useful.
