Whole Mind Success seminars have helped many companies increase their employees Creative and Innovative skills.

The methods taught at our interactive, hands-on workshops result in physiological changes - improvements in our Neural networks.

An added benefit is that, in the elderly, Whole Mind techniques help to delay, and possibly prevent, the onset of Dementia.
Whole Mind Success keeps the mind alert and active, enhancing creativity and Memory.

Whole Mind Success at Sunrise Assisted Living

Sixty professional caregivers for the elderly were excited by the proven benefits of Whole Mind Success methods in reversing mental aging.

Last Thursday, at Sunrise Assisted Living, Bala Kanayson of Whole Mind Success spoke to a group of medical and professional caregivers.

The program was a great success, with the enthusiastic participants asking Bala to continue past the allotted time.
Many stayed back to discuss the program and its benefits to the elderly.
Most of them requested Whole Mind Success seminars for themselves, and a fair number are working with us to schedule seminars for their companies and clients.

The Brain and Aging

Just like the rest of our body, as each of us ages, our brains change.
Brain cells die, and studies show that brain structures such as the hippocampus become smaller. Although these changes may not always affect memory, their effects vary widely with each individual.

Our working memory is a temporary storage for information and also the analysis of information, decision-making and information selection.
Our working memory’s primary location is in the hippocampus and in the frontal cortex.
Long term memory, however, is stored in various locations in the brain.

Our brain cells are dying daily, but current research shows that the process does not accelerate with age. Furthermore, the areas of the brain that lose cells are not clearly related to memory.

As we age, the way that the brain processes information slows down, reducing the storage rate of new information into our permanent memory.

What can we do to reduce and even stop this mental deterioration?We can begin using the proven methods of keeping our brains alert and helping to build new neuronal circuits – methods taught in every Whole Mind Success seminar.

What did you do last Tuesday at 10.15 am? Can you remember?

Do you have difficulty remembering what you read or studied recently?
Can you rattle off some atomic weights from the Periodic Table or valencies of various elements from your last Chemistry class?

Memory is no longer the mystery it was just a few decades ago. Neuroscience shows us that memory is a unique capacity that is separate from other cognitive functions. The main region of our brain associated with memory is the hippocampus. Various biological pathways in the brain are involved in the process of retaining information in our 'memory banks'.

Studies have shown that memory is aided by the release of the chemical acetylcholine.
In fact, in Alzheimer's disease, one treatment for memory impairment is the use of cholinesterase inhibitors - which help normalize the acetylcholine levels in the brain.
Besides a better memory, this treatment helps improve thinking and functionality in some Alzheimer's patients.

Don't Eat your Batteries Pt. 2

Posted: Friday, May 11, 2007
At : 10:22 AM

Last week we addressed lithium's healing properties.

How does lithium work? Although the mechanisms are still under study, several observations have been made.

Lithium (Li) quickly changes the concentration of neurotransmitters in the brain, thus correcting the chemical imbalance responsible for the disorder.

At the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), researchers discovered that Li increases the volume of grey Matter in the brain, thus increasing the number of neurons. In particular, neuronal levels in the hippocampus (involved in memory) increased by 25%. (H. Manji, NIMH).

Other potential benefits of Lithium salts include the treatment of Schizophrenia and preventing the death of brain cells due to strokes or the radiation therapy in cancer treatment.

The question is: why have we not seen more research and news about this?

The answer is: there is NO MONEY to be made - lithium is an element, so drug companies cannot patent it and MAKE PROFITS from its use. Therefore they won't spend their money to prove its efficacy in the treatment of major neurological diseases affecting thousands of people throughout the world.

Don't Eat Your Batteries

If you have Lithium batteries and have wondered how to dispose of them, do NOT eat them – even if you’ve heard of lithium's healing properties.

Yes, we have known for many years that lithium has been used for its healing properties, particularly in Bipolar Disorder.

In bipolar disorder, patients have extreme mood swings ranging from feelings of ecstasy and high energy, to periods of extreme depression where they can barely function. The brains of these victims have a chemical imbalance affecting neurotransmitter levels, and also a reduced amount of grey matter (neuron cell bodies).

Lithium salts were first used in the treatment of bipolar disorder in the 1950s, helping thousands of sufferers cope with their ailment.

Recent neurological studies have shown that lithium salts can potentially help those suffering from strokes, Huntington's or Alzheimer's diseases.
