#239: Avoid These Things If You Want a Healthier Brain with Dr. Daniel Amen

Dhru Purohit Podcast

Avoid These Things If You Want a Healthier Brain | This episode is brought to you by BLUblox and Cozy Earth.The brain is capable of some incredible and life-altering changes. The hippocampus actually creates 700 new stem cells every single day, meaning the brain can regenerate, improve, and heal from traumatic injuries and other significant insults to function better than ever. We’re more successful at this when we know what the underlying causes of dysfunction are. The brain is one organ that is often treated without ever being seen. Imaging provides us with an amazing look at what areas of the brain are suffering. We can also look at our habits, genetic predispositions, emotional and physical health history, environment, and many other factors to understand the root of brain imbalances. Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to our good friend and colleague, Dr. Daniel Amen, about all this and more. Dr. Amen is a physician, double board-certified psychiatrist, twelve-time New York Times bestselling author, and founder of Amen Clinics, with 10 clinics across the United States. Amen Clinics has the world’s largest database of brain SPECT scans related to behavior, totaling nearly 200,000 scans on patients from 150 countries.  Dr. Amen’s research team has published more than 80 scientific articles on his work, and Discover Magazine named his research using SPECT to distinguish posttraumatic stress disorder from traumatic brain injury as one of the top 100 stories in science for 2015. Dr. Amen is the author of many books including the mega-bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, as well as The End of Mental Illness, Memory Rescue, Healing ADD, and The Daniel Plan, written with Dr. Mark Hyman and Pastor Rick Warren. In March 2021, he released Your Brain Is Always Listening: Tame the Hidden Dragons That Control Your Happiness, Habits and Hang Ups.  In this episode, we dive into: -How improving your brain health improves every aspect of your life (7:35) -Why Dr. Amen hates the term mental illness (12:50) -What you do to your brain you do to your body (14:24) -The hidden forces that are having a dramatic impact on our brain and bodies (17:32) -What Dr. Amen did to take control of his brain health (24:04)-How to have mastery over the health of your brain and body (28:52) -How influences from your past steal your happiness (33:52) -How mold can wreak havoc on the brain (48:34) -How to get control over the inflammation in your body and brain (55:21) -Common reasons why people get derailed from following through on a plan (1:01:33) Also mentioned in this episode:-The UltraMind Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman - https://amzn.to/3Czdjyg -Amen Clinics - http://amenclinics.com -Know Your Dragon’s Quiz - https://knowyourdragons.com/ -The Brain Warrior’s Way Podcast - https://brainwarriorswaypodcast.com/ -Brain Thrive by 25 Course - https://www.amenuniversity.com/brain-thrive-by-25-basic-Change Your Brain, Change Your Life Foundation - https://changeyourbrain.org/ -I Told You So!

I started learning about blue light and how it disrupts the body’s natural melatonin production, so I decided to try blue-light blocking glasses throughout the day to see if they helped—and they totally did. I love the blue-light blocking glasses made by BLUblox. BLUblox glasses reduced my digital eye strain and dramatically improved my sleep, and I have more energy throughout the day.

For one, these sheets help regulate temperature. One of the biggest tips all of the top sleep experts will give you is to make sure your sleep environment is cool. Studies actually show that sleeping in cooler temperatures leads to deeper and more restorative sleep. They are also the most comfortable sheets I’ve ever used.

From the time you open your eyes, your brain is kicking in and most likely living in overdrive. The unfortunate truth is most likely you’re not even aware of all the ways your brain is under attack. Social media is being consumed at an unhealthy rate in both your personal and business life. Even if you have a generally healthy diet, processed foods and chemicals that damage the brain are still sneaking into your body’s system. Is there any wonder why anxiety, stress, and depression, trauma and PTSD are now considered to be the norm? Dr. Daniel Amen is a psychiatrist, brain scan expert and third time guest. In this episode, he’s unleashing the truth about the emotional dragons you are likely dealing with. He gets into some of the most common dragons attacking your emotional brain today, anxious, wounded and inferior to name a few. If you’re low-key feeling attacked on a daily basis, breathe deep and listen in on ways you can start changing your brain and changing your life for the better.

306. 8 Natural Remedies for Depression with Psychiatrist and Leading Brain Health Expert Dr. Daniel Amen

Better Together with Maria Menounos

Originally Aired: August 24, 2020 Covid got you down? Most Americans are lonelier and more depressed than they've EVER been. You may be one of them, but you don't have to be, we have some solutions for you. In his return to our show, Dr. Daniel Amen, whom the Washington Post called "the most popular psychiatrist in America," acknowledges a surge in his suicidal clientele, but he is not giving up hope. By offering simple, everyday strategies like Havening or, even habitually saying to ourselves, "today is going to be a great day," we can create noticeable shifts in our everyday life. Dr. Amen discusses the "dragons" that breathe fire into our past traumas, and how we can fight those dragons to find peace, even though we're facing the most challenging chapter of our current century. Dr. Amen also gives a list of amazing natural remedies for depression like Omega-3, saffron, and lavender, which studies have proven can act as natural anti-depressants. Trust me, we understand how hard it is right now, but there is hope! RESOURCES: Dr Amen's Website: www.amenclinics.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/better-together-w-maria/support
