The Sanctuary at Sedona today announced the publication of Brain Cell Growth: 4 Ways to Neurogenesis. The Sanctuary at Sedona is a non 12 step holistic addiction treatment center that uses a combination of ancient healing modules and cutting edge scientific methods to heal the body, mind, soul and spirit. Its website features a Learning Center that offers a comprehensive resource for topics such as nutrition, codependency and addiction recovery.
Brain Cell Growth: 4 Ways to Neurogenesis is one of the Learning Center’s newest articles, and it discusses methods of growing brain cells and its benefits. According to Harvard Health Letter Executive Editor Heidi Godman, neurogenesis is linked to improving the brains memory and analysis functions.
“Exercise changes the brain in ways that protect our memory and thinking skills … [This combats] the brain fog that comes with age,” said Godman.
The Sanctuary’s article focuses on 4 specific methods of inducing brain cell growth. The first way is by stimulating one’s brain because research has shown that providing the brain with an enriching and stimulating environment by engaging in activities such as studying a new language or learning a new instrument promotes the growth of neurogenesis.
Another effective way to generate new brain cells is by engaging in cardiovascular exercise, such as jogging or swimming. It stimulates the release of growth elements in the human brain.
Eating sufficient omega 3 fatty acids is also important for neurogenesis because they contain the necessary nutrients for building cell membranes in the brain.
Daily mindful meditation has also been linked to the promotion of new brain cell growth. This practice has also been linked to epigenetics and is a great way to relieve stress.
You can learn more about neurogenesis by checking out the Sanctuary’s Learning Center. This resource also provides information on new genetic research, epigenetic modification, and holistic health.
