Do ancient practices hold the key to a modern epidemic?
An estimated 5.4 million people in the U.S. are afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease, devastating not only those individuals but also their families. The scientific community is yet to understand Alzheimer’s elusive and complex causes and treatments. Despite relentless drug trials and research, Alzheimer’s continues at a furious pace. It is a gigantic specter that looms before all of us as we age, and it is advancing unimpeded.
In his book, Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s, Dr. Sen examines the importance of meditation, yoga, and other holistic medicines in the prevention of and care for Alzheimer’s and dementia. Based on the latest scientific research, Dr. Sen’s work offers hope and optimism at a time when nothing else thwarts the unharnessed march of this disease.
