Sedona AZ (March 18, 2021) – The Sedona Women (“TSW”) continue their 20-year pledge of “Making a Difference” in our community with an uplifting and informative webinar focused on Alzheimer’s prevention and overall brain health on Wednesday, March 24 at 10:30 a.m. via Zoom.
TSW is proud to welcome to this important discussion Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, authors of The Alzheimer’s Solution and The 30 Day Alzheimer’s Solution, and co-directors of the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center. They will be on hand to discuss their research on maintaining brain health while preventing dementia and other neurodegenerative disease through their innovative customizable brain health program, The Neuro Plan, for both individuals and organizations.
Backed by years of research, the Sherzais seek to illuminate the steps to long-term brain health through The Neuro Plan. The Drs. will explain how Nutrition, Exercise, Restorative Sleep, Unwinding, and Optimization (or N.E.U.R.O.) are five pivotal factors that can drastically affect your mind’s health. With the help of technology and neurological research, users are empowered to improve their brain health by making better lifestyle choices and enhancing their cognitive capacity. Their ongoing research looks at the effectiveness of lifestyle behaviors in preventing dementia when supported through participation in small groups with coaching. Starting this month, Drs. Sherzai are working collaboratively with the local non-profit Healthy World Sedona to enroll Arizona residents age 55 and older in a research study on maintaining cognitive health through lifestyle. More information about the study is available at hwvitality.com.
