Alzheimers / Dementia

We recommend our Brain Booster set in Yoga House Calls, the Maximize Memory set in Yoga Quick Fixes, as well as the Sa Ta Na Ma meditation at the end of both of those DVDs. We also recommend the last 2 exercises, as well as the meditation, in Yoga Beauty Body.

There are many possible reasons for the early onset of Alzheimers including genetic, environmental pollutants, or mercury fillings. One reason tofu has been linked to Alzheimers, is, we believe, because in Asia formaldehyde and other questionable preservatives has been used in processing. Most of the studies that linked soy to early onset dementia took place in Asia. We believe that the occasional prepackaged, non-gmo, tofu sold in health food stores is probaby pretty safe. Nevertheless, there may be some cause for concern regarding the use of soy based products.

It is possible that soy produces excess estrogen in the body which affects hormonal balance and in turn brain balance. A good Kundalini practice will help the liver to cleanse the body of excess hormones. Toxins dont accumulate in the brain per se, but it is very important for the health of the brain to detox the liver. We recommend our Yoga Cleanse DVD, though any of the DVDs you own will include exercises for the liver.
