The Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation was founded in 1993 by Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D. The ARPF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and early intervention of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease through an integrative medical program. We do this by conducting clinical research and providing educational outreach.

We are committed to empowering brain longevity, which will ensure an enhanced quality of life for present and future generations.

This group has devised a meditation practice that takes only 12 minutes to complete. It is evidence backed for helping build up memory and cognative centers that are affected by Alzheimer's. This is an amazing gift, not only for people in early stages of cognitive decline, but for so many caretakers who do not have the time for more lengthy mediation practices. The combination of visuals, sounds, and finger movements is unusual. It makes it easier for people to keep focused during the important work of mediating.
This group grows out of a space of love and compassion which is itself healing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Using their CD to help people with early stages of cognitive decline learn how to meditate. As with all forms of meditation, it takes dedication, but for those who stick with it, this is a powerful technique that makes people feel better and seems to improve their quality of life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Offer the CDs at a reduced rate for those who are spreading the SAA-TAA-NAA-MAA word.

The newsletters and papers are very informative about a very scary disease. It is good to know how to recognize it and how to deal with it, not just in yourself but also in others. I was also able to forward the email to a friend who is concerned about Alzheimer's because it runs in his family and he feels helpless about it. Information is the best thing for anxiety and helplessness, I feel, and this organization gives good and up-to-the-minute information.

Alzheimers is to me one of the scariest diseases we currently fight, because it takes away who a person is. My family has a history of Alzheimers. The Alzheimers Research and Prevention Foundation has given me info on prevention and on dealing with Alzheimers should it strike. This has been very helpful and reassuring.

Help it to provide more funding for research.
