Improve brain function and wellness

Brain emPower™ supports the hearing impaired community by addressing psychological and behavioral patterns associated with hearing loss, that, without treatment, may lead to dementia. The program includes evidence-based Western neuro-science, best-practices in integrative medical modalities and ancient yogic wisdom.

Brain emPower features fundamentals of dementia prevention, documented by the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation™ (ARPF), that have been proven to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in lieu of current pharmaceutical therapies that have been shown to be ineffective.

Benefits of yoga on brain health

Because the proven ARPF protocols have benefited clinically diagnosed dementia patients, these strategies are now being offered through the Brain emPower program to those who may be at-risk or concerned about their brain health. These modalities, when included in one’s lifestyle, have been shown to help restore and/or prevent cognitive decline while empowering the individual with overall wellness, vitality and stress reduction.

The Brain emPower program content has been cross referenced with scientific documentation from respected leaders in the field of brain health, yogic practices and neuroscience.
