0 Views
Published
Ayurvedic medical traditions going back over 5000 years have a lot to say about approaches to preventing memory loss that have many fascinating similarities to the latest thinking about Alzheimer’s disease prevention.

Today we are joined by by someone who is not only an expert in the latest neuroscience and biochemistry of Alzheimer’s disease but is also an expert in Ayurveda.

Dr. Rammohan Rao is Principal Research Scientist at Apollo Health. He has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and biochemistry and has worked closely with Dr. Dale Bredesen at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging where he was an Associate Professor of Neuroscience focusing in the areas of chronic stress, neuronal cell death, and mechanisms of age-associated neurodegenerative diseases with special emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Rao has over twenty-five years of research and teaching experience in neuroscience and has published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals and chapters in several textbooks. He is also a National Ayurveda Medical Association (NAMA) board-certified Ayurveda Practitioner and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) from Yoga Alliance USA and teaches Ayurveda and Yoga at the California College of Ayurveda.
