Heart Coherence Training May Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease
In a recent report by the Alzheimer’s Association, it was revealed that over 6 million people in America are currently living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). This devastating disease slowly erodes the minds of people we love and care for, but a ray of hope has emerged with a groundbreaking study that suggests heart coherence training developed by HeartMath Institute (HMI) may offer help to millions of individuals and potentially reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Heart coherence refers to a specific rhythmic pattern of heart rate variability (HRV), which is the variation in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats – the beat-to-beat changes. To achieve heart rhythm coherence, individuals are guided to consciously slow their breathing while engaging in specific techniques developed by HeartMath. These techniques typically involve slow-paced heart-focused breathing while self-generating positive emotions such as calmness, gratitude, appreciation, or compassion.Continue reading
