How Dr. Daniel Amen Repairs the Brain with Healthy Living

In this informative talk about brain health, Dr. Daniel G. Amen makes a powerful case for preventative living through healthy habits. In a time where bodies are expanding and brains are shrinking, he calls this game-changing lifestyle The Brain Warrior’s Way.

The plan focuses on diet and exercise and delivers results in not only physical but also scientific proof. In a series of images, Amen shows several shrunken brains that with a proper lifestyle, expand to a healthier mass in a matter of months.

“You just have to make a series of really smart decisions, and ask yourself every day, ‘Is what I’m doing today good for my brain, or bad for it?’ ” –Dr. Daniel Amen

    Oh, my goodness. I’m going to change my life! Moreover, I’m getting that spect scan! God is using all this very important information to help us be the best we can be! That’s a God thing! To God be the glory!

  2. D M on December 6, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    This is hilarious! Any one who dates for 4 month or longer gets scanned. Lol. Very smart though! This is a great talk/presentation.

  3. Jim Alexander on December 6, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    Am I wrong for eating a bowl of chips and salsa while watching his presentation?

  4. Vanda Guzman All Things Spirit on December 6, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    You are so right about them pushing horrible food at church.
    The problem is the bottom line…really quality food is expensive.
    Pork hot dogs,
    We all can be cheap.
    Except Seventh Day Adventists…they have been on the right track for many years.

  6. Claudio Marcelino on December 6, 2020 at 9:14 pm

    This is so beautiful and life-transforming. Thank you Dr. Amen!

  7. SistaSunshine Smith on December 6, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Curious…is there a way to publicly show how those at Saddleback that are part of this program are combating the coronavirus? God’s liberty healing and blessings for us all! Mercy Grace & Peace! Heart issue = Health crisis

  8. Mania Bagheri Detering on December 6, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    I am a fan of his books, but I think the most beautiful pieces of art came outta faulty brains. He would be surprised if he could scan the brains of famous artists in the history. Think of Beethoven and the many musicians, actors, painters, poets, philosophers and even scientists with mental health issues.

  9. VIckey Steffin on December 6, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Was it necessary to call church people bastards ? You lost me after that.

  10. Doc !!! on December 6, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    How do I get a brain scan????? A GP won’t prescribe one if I have no symptoms.

  11. Hidaya Azad on December 6, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Can we talk about how this PROFESSOR thinks unhealthy food in America is equivalent in evil to Americans terrorizing Iraqis ??? He did NOT really just compare isis to hotdogs

  12. Hope Hendrick on December 6, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    He must go to my church, Mariner’s. I noticed they changed the menu at least in the cafe.

  13. Qonspiracy Theory on December 6, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    This man is a quack and a charlatan. Good actor, though. Completely non-specific and non-scientific brain scans or indication of clinical effectiveness. Yet he charges thousands of dollars for his little experiments.

  14. Hasher Peekpower on December 6, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Cholesterol has to be linked to Alzheimer’s.

  15. makwan pro on December 6, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Nice Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about – Peyadison Initial Principality (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a good one off guide for discovering how to get rid of depression minus the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work colleague finally got excellent results with it.

  16. Kenneth Garcia on December 6, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Dr. Amen is a fraud, con man, and charlatan! He is the equivalent of the Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes! He makes a fortune doing expensive and unnecessary testing which has no evidence of providing more valuable information than a competent interview and then he sells dietary supplements of no proven value to treat the conditions that he claims they are effective for treating! These frauds are exploiting the desperate and unsophisticated suffers for their own fiscal enrichment! He should be stripped of his medical license for practicing outside the established boundaries of science like some tea leaf reading psychic. He is the Donald Trump of Psychiatry… fake news!

  17. Pregnant Nuns on December 6, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Has anyone tried any great results?

  18. The Light Of The Body Is Pineal on December 6, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Truth! Donuts during digestion becomes a mild anesthetic! I Love this Doctor!

  19. lyncap99 on December 6, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    What about MRIs? Are they a suitable way to assess the brain health?

  20. Eliot Wolski on December 6, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Hey, just here to say that this guy is a literal joke in the psychology community

    Also, ISIS is friends of the US goverment and Israel. Widely document. Look up Israeli Colonel Caught With IS Pants Down (2015), for Example.
    Also US imperialism is more dangerous than coronavirus.

    So, exactly How do you repair the brain? I thought the answer was in this video…

  25. Liz Hammer on December 6, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    This is the man who helped Justin Bieber on his healing journey. His words have motivated me towards my own healing.

  27. Chris Long on December 6, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Anyone else think this guy looks a lot like the leader of that doomsday cult in San Diego who killed themselves to go catch a ride with aliens in that comet?

  28. Marco Jouve on December 6, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Amazing talk! Living on a remote island in the South Pacific, generational epidemic of poor nutrition from Western influences has significantly plagued our simple whole plant based lifestyle. Although, thee is still hope for my gen to may change minds and create new habits by adopting a better brain & fit body.

  39. shawna mahoney on December 6, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    How does the teachings reach the communities/youth that are suffering and come from generations of sufferings?
    Do low income doctors/health providers educators and clinics have the ability/resources to share the tools and products that may be helpful to there patients quality of life that may changed the direction of human life in 2020?
    environment and food is not a choice that is available for so much or most of the country or our planet. who can help? who are the organizations, institutions, or people who can try and practice make choices that will help?
    There are a lot of great ideas, teachings, information, yet no one to put it into truthful helpful ACTION!!!!!!
    Does low income insurance pay for brain scans?
    I will check today.

    High Glycemic food is not bad for you, it just means that it is the most readily absorbed by your body. For example Lucozade or a boiled potato. Studies have show that between intense exercise ( for example you run 10 miles one day and 10 miles the other ) the best thing for you to eat is high glycemic foods, and lots of them. Of course, too much and you get fat. But to say that food that scores high on the glycemic index is bad, is wrong.

  42. Prince Kaizen Namwali on December 6, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    This video was so amazing, that I simply had to buy the book. The war on health is never ending and fatal

    fantastic! and exactly the work I help my clients with! thank-you for a great talk!

  47. Kenneth Garcia on December 6, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Amen ethics have been continually questioned for his gimmicky scans and nutritional supplements and false claims of everything from keeping people young to preventing alzheimer’s. Taking advantage of desperate, simple minded folk, he scans everyone, charging $4000 per scan (which private insurance will not pay because the scan provides no information you could not get from interviewing the patient. He is a crook and should have his license revoked and be jailed for fraud.

  48. Saina Rouzi on December 6, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Dr. Daniel Amen has a book written called “Healing Anxiety and Depression” where he talks about 7 different types of anxiety and depression and brain scans and treatment. I read this book several years ago.
