HPN Events (APRIL 2020)

What are the six pillars?

Nutrition

Did you know that what you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood?  Think about it. Your brain is always “on.” It takes care of your thoughts and movements, your breathing and heartbeat, your senses — it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. That “fuel” comes from the foods you eat — and what’s in that fuel makes a huge difference. 

Exercise

Physical exercise is not only important for your body’s health - it also helps your brain stay sharp.  Your brain is no different than the muscles in your body. - You either use it or you lose it. When you stimulate your muscles in the gym you give your brain a boost on multiple levels from the molecular level to behavioral, the information you process during exercise with help improve memory function.

Rejuvenation

Did you know that an average person will sleep for 229,961 hours or about one-third of your time?  Quality sleep – and getting enough of it at the right times - is as essential to survival as food and water. Sleep affects almost every type of tissue and system in the body – from the brain, heart, and lungs to metabolism, immune function, mood, and disease resistance.  Recent findings suggest that sleep plays a housekeeping role that removes toxins in your brain that build up while you are awake.

Medical Mindfulness

Did you know that a variety of medical conditions are strongly linked to the decline of brain function. Keep your blood pressure and weight at a healthy level, take medication as prescribed, cut down on salt and sugar, keep active and stay socially connected and positive. All of this can help you stay sharp, smart, and increase the vitality and quality of life as you enter your golden years.

Mental Fitness

Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, Including mental dexterity exercises into your daily routine can help you reap the benefits of a sharper mind and a healthier body for years to come.  We also know that Meditation, in conjunction with the other 5 elements of brain health is helpful in treating depression. By calming the mind it allows you to problem solve in a more relaxed way helping to reduce stress.

Social Interaction

Did you know that being socially active, especially later in life, brings many mental and physical health benefits? Not least of these is the fact that social interaction in a group can protect against cognitive decline.  A rich social network provides sources of support, reduces stress, combats depression and enhances intellectual stimulation.  Being socially active feeds your brain.

Lifestyle has a profound impact on our overall health. The way you take care of your body now will determine your overall well-being for generations to come. Your actions today will lead to a better tomorrow.

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience (HPN) is collaborating with health and well-being leaders in Hawai’i to extend a rare opportunity for the community to participate in the upcoming brain & health symposium.

Attendees will learn and experience 6 pillars of brain health: physical movement, healthy foods, medical management, sleep/relaxation, mental fitness and social interaction. These 6 proven methods will help you navigate to greater brain and ultimate whole health.

We are pleased to offer the community an interactive event otherwise known as: “Your Brain & Whole Health Symposium”. This event will be held on Friday April 17, 2020. We hope you will join us in experiencing a day of wholeness, including wellness education by national speakers and expert leaders in neuroscience. We will begin our day with light movement, followed by educational talks, interactive learning, a heart – healthy lunch, and access to health vendors.

In celebration and honor of “A Decade of the Brain” HPN is extending a 75% discounted rate of $25 for your participation. Your payment will go toward further research in treating and preventing neurological disorders.

Message

It is my pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the first ever scientific and medical conference on Brain Health and Wellness in Hawaii. 1 in 6 people over 65 will develop neurological condition like Alzheimer’s dementia which is currently without a cure or treatment. Research has shown strong evidence that lifestyle and wellness and how we live are directly linked to our risk of developing neurological disorders like preventing stroke and headaches. We have gathered Hawaii’s leading experts in Brain Health and Wellness to kick off the first ever symposium in Hawaii and I invite you to join us on this journey.

6 Pillars of Mind-Fullness:
Whole Brain Health


I am thrilled to welcome you to the first brain health symposium sponsored by Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience. When it comes to your brain, lifestyle choices really matter. We are what we eat so choose healthy foods and avoid unhealthy choices. Exercise increases blood flow bringing fuel to the brain in the form of oxygen and glucose. Interactions of all types strengthen the brain. A life with purpose impacts wellness in so many ways.

My work specializes in the diagnosis, management and treatment for those living with cognitive disorders and dementia. I provide whole person care with a focus on quality of life. There is always more that can be done to provide comfort, enhance function and encourage support for patients and their caregivers. I believe that balancing physical and psychosocial and spiritual concerns can provide a sense of wellness at any point in life.
