The burden of mental disorders continues to grow with significant impacts on health and major social, human rights and economic consequences in all countries of the world. The global pandemic has resulted in more mental casualties than physical casualties: A study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, analysed the electronic health records of 69.8 million patients in the United States, which included 62,354 patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Within three months of testing positive, almost 20% of people diagnosed with COVID-19 were then diagnosed with psychiatric disorders, including anxiety, depression or insomnia. One in four of those people had not received a psychiatric diagnosis before. The researchers warned that the results are likely to be underestimates of the actual number of cases and a reflection of a worldwide reality. in addition, worldwide, approximately 50 million people have dementia. Dementia is usually of a chronic or progressive nature in which there is deterioration in cognitive function (i.e., the ability to process thought) beyond what might be expected from normal ageing. With isolation of our aging population “in order to protect them”, the numbers here to have increased dramatically not only for the elderly but for younger and younger people.
Join Dr Rene and Dr Maria as we explore the science behind brain health both on a physical and on a mental/emotional point of view. Learn how we can heal the physical brain, prevent further injury, heal the mind and as a consequence, create a new state of being. Most of us begin to misplace our keys, forget people’s names, or solve math problems less readily as we approach middle age. Brain fog seems to become a new state of existence. This is often referred to as age-related cognitive decline. Years ago, scientists believed that this decline was inevitable, but research over the past two decades has proven that the adult brain changes with experience and training throughout the lifespan—a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity requires active effort. Epidemiological research finds that how a brain ages depends on a several factors including diet, physical exercise, sleep quality, hormones, lifestyle choices, supplementation and often neglected: state of mind. The healthier and more active one’s lifestyle, the more positive and mindful one’s headspace, the more likely he or she will maintain cognitive performance and overall good health over time.
Together we will delve into the latest research on mind health, learn how to incorporate this practically and simply into our daily lives and how to remould your brain with new thought patterns, creating healthier habits that are long-lasting and impactful, and how to manifest the health and life we want into our reality.
