In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
This videos total focus is this doctor's self promotion. You obviously have some skill in helping people fix their brain issues, but you failed to give the faintest advice to your viewers on what people should do for their brain healing/health. For all those rich people that can afford to seek your services - they may unravel your medical skills/secrets. But for the rest of us ... this video is of no use.
The SMART program that Daniel Amen references sounds fantastic. He even has proof of it through brain scans. Although I am so curious as to what this program really is. If it is accomplishing such great rehabilitation I do not see why he would not talk about it more rather than rant on about his discoveries that basically everything in everyday life can damage your brain. Could anyone explain to me what this program does to treat damaged brains?
Charles Whitman was found to have a tumor in his brain after his shooting spree at the University of Texas, Austin.
We all understand that Drain Bramage causes bad things to happen!
It's how to stop Alzheimer's, or correct ADHD!
Drugs are not, nor have they ever been the answer!
Whitman, FYI, is the reason that SWAT teams exist today. What a pioneer! Ay?
I feel deep respect for the way you see and look at people. Full of kindness, love and understanding. THAT is civilisation! And you are so right by saying that behaviour is not the problem. But most of the time that's the only thing people see and react on.
As a follower of Christ, I know that the Bible cures brain damage. Why? Jesus is the Healer of our souls. His Word convinces our spirit to submit and fear the Lord our Maker. Knowing that psychiatry presents man as a mechanical device to be manipulated and controlled by the Devils system of control, one may consider that God loves us all and the wisdom of men is foolishness to God. The beginning of knowledge is the fear of the Lord. Jesus is the Lord. He is coming soon .
Preventing troubled brain later is possible with mindfulness, Social-emotional learning in elementary schools. Playing football can cause brain damage must be informed. Good news Brain rehab is possible!
Misleading articles have been published denying the ability to increase percentages of brain use. Of course 90% of the brain doesn't stay unused. Conscious brain use is traced by an MRI by showing volumes of light in the active parts of the brain. It was even suggested to be used as a lie detector. It was written that when the truth is told there would be only one region of light. When a lie is told there would be two regions of light. It was spread that by memorizing tables of analogous correspondences there would be multiple areas of light, truth or lie. That put an end to that form of lie detector.
With normal people, the total volume of these volumes of light is not over 10% brain use at any one instant. LSD blocks seratonin the neurotransmitter of the inhibitory neurons of the brain which keep brain use down to 10% brain use. By LSD blocking seratonin the brain wakes up to more than 10% brain use, depending upon the amount of LSD ingested.
Parasympathetic nervous system stimulation also wakes up the brain, to more than 10% brain use, by over riding the inhibitory neurons. The largest nerves of the parasympathetic nervous system are the vagus nerves, which emerge from the brain by the vagus trunk through the nasopharynx, which branches down as right and left vagus nerves down into the body, not through the spine, so that they are easily stimulated. Vagal stimulation is as effective as LSD.
The psychiatric profession secretly calls more than 10% brain use "psychosis". Why secretly? This secret, today easily expressed medically, "Vagal stimulation is as effective as LSD", has been the most suppressed knowledge in history. But, it too is being spread, just like the knowledge of the futility of the MRI lie detector.
Fabulous talk. Amazing our understanding and progress in brain research at the same time unacceptable how long it really has taken us and how far we still have to go. Unfortunately our barbaric medical treatments are still being used because they continue to make money for the rich. What if we all were motivated by the rewards of healing people and making the lives worth living what kind of world would we have?
Shame i live in a country where when u get your kidney stones removed or u need any other mild operation u can actually die or get a fork forgotten in your belly. In a country where is one MRI scan which is not even working. In a country where medicine is 80 years behind. In a country where people with cancer have to wait 3 months for mild checkup. Because I have all the simptoms Dr. Amen described.
Great work, informative, my brother died brain tumor but no one said why? Giolblastoma etc yet a young friend who also received growth hormone treatment for his tumor doctors told him it was because of an intial fall ?? Also what is the difference between cat scan and mri. Do MRI show up growth and tumors more clearly God forbid Ive had cat scan but it didn't show anything but I don't feel right , after violence and nearly being garroted with an industrial ladder?
I think its VERY important for ANYONE struggling with mental Illness to learn to pay close attention to how your outside environment may be having a direct effect upon your hormone balances. For example during past scientific studies fluorescent lighting proved to significantly increase a persons levels of Cortisol and ACTH (stress hormones associated with flight fright response). And, in a process very similar to how an adrenaline junky becomes addicted to this hormonal imbalance, during cellular mitosis (division) these hormonal imbalances easily become conditioned to your daily routines. I believe people who spend a lot of time under heavy duty lighting (ie stage, filming, studio, etc) or work/ stay up all night are under even more risk of having extreme stress imbalances, which may be contributing to increased rates of Suicide in the entertainment/ news industry.
When I was being challenged the most by mercury poisoning (many symptoms very similar to Aspergers), if I went into a large store - like Walmart - between the stress of all the fluorescent lights above me, all the strong odors, and if someone was rude or unreasonable with me I would begin swearing at them and calling them horrible names, as if I had Tourette syndrome. I used words that under normal circumstances disgusted me and were not part of my vocabulary. I simply had no ability to be either reasonable, respectful, or even compassionate to others.
My doctor simply said' you must be under a lot of stress and recommended mental health counseling - a whole nother story there- it took me several years before I learned about the studies that had been conducted (I believe in Germany) with fluorescent lights in the 1980's. When I mentioned this possibility to my family physician of 9 years he laughed at me and scolded me for believing everything I read online. By then, from my research, I was already aware that there are Doctors out there who are well aware of the potential problem that lighting can have with hypersensitive people... yes the mercury had caused my body to become overly sensitive to my environment, which led to my always being on the edge of entering into a flight or fight response (AKA PTSD); a state of being that greatly compromises a persons brain functions (mental energy is instead sent to rest of body for physical response).
I consider myself blessed to have been able to learn, on my own, what i needed to in order for me to gain control of my central nervous system - and life. I also know in my heart, from these experiences, that drugs nor counseling will make these unknown hormonal imbalances go away- we instead must know and respect the environments we create and put ourselves into on a daily basis, and how these influences are effecting the body's overall balances.
My psychiatrist won’t even consider the science of neuropharmacodynamics because “it’s too complicated.” Doesn’t this sound like glorified “blood letting” by pills?
Also, I’m homeless/penniless/jobless(unable to _hold_ a job)/friendless/loveless with recently diagnosed ADD-I in addition to depression, Asperger’s, stuttering, social anxiety, generalized anxiety. I also have cognitive decline over the past 2 years, but doctors say ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ “it’s normal.” I was hit in the head with the exterior outer door of a gym at 13, hit in the head with a mini-sledge at 11, fell/hit my head on kitchen counter, furniture and walls.. so I likely have some PFC brain inactivity. Even if it’s untreatable, knowing what’s generally wrong would bring reassurance/closure.
Big picture: I desperately need a lifestyle change because my life isn’t humane to continue needless suffering. I wish I remotely had a clinician such as in this video, but it’s understandable why not, because society has spoken: I’m not worth the money.
Oh and the Republicans are taking away half of the money (all of my SNAP for food) I need to survive September 1, 2018. I’m going to have to embark on a hunger strike because there’s nothing else I can do, as I offer less than zero net value to society... I should probably just be killed anyhow to save the money. I can’t see how I can work yet have been told suddenly I’m ABAWD... I should just “snap out of it” and become productive when I can’t even sleep the same schedule two nights in a row, can’t see because my nystagmus goes nuts, can’t feel hot or cold in my hands, can’t do physical activities due to no muscles and easily injured due an undiagnosed connective tissue disorder that should be obvious, autoimmune, metabolic and/or cardiovascular defect, my back always hurts sitting and my extremities twitch nonstop from myoclonus. I wonder if I am a lazy person just making excuses and playing victim/looking for sympathy pity-party when I really just want to hang myself and get it over with.
What a hack. Saw in another comment that the 'secret formula' he suggests in his paid content like his books and programs is exercise, vitamins, and brain games. How mind-blowing. You can exercise all you want and swallow 5 Centrums every morning, but if you don't have good relationships and a fulfilling occupation it is tough to be mentally healthy. He misses the non-physical part of mental health.
Interesting and a great start but still lacks details on how they change the persons brain...this is still a form of withholding information so more people can have access to healing themselves...still profit based. I'm going to look further for the actual solution.
This Ted Talk is making me rethink about getting back into Psychology. Studied it in depth at UCSB, was going to go to Stanford of Berkeley for grad school, but chose to go a different path. I was petrified of the idea of unintentionally affecting people in a negative way based on what I perceived to be a soft science. This brain-scan methodology literally rewrites how psychology can be interpreted. Amazing topic and very inspiring!
I don't think it's either or-- either medical testing or relying on symptoms, I think it has to be a combination. The same reason why thyroid disorders are so commonly mistreated because doctors don't even ask about symptoms, only ask for blood tests and see if the levels are in the reference range. But symptoms matter too, they both matter and each individual is a little different. We need comprehensive, integrative approaches.
But you cant compare the number of prisoners in european countries with the ones from usa, because the US ist at least 4 times bigger in population than all european countries, even consider the population-boom starting after ww2
What a story--Andrew! Our first born son was born with autism in 1980. There wasn't so much knowledge at the time. Would a brain scan be useful for Michael? Since I am also the middle of seven children--one maverick to another--I appreciate your work!
He said the reason to not do drugs was because they kill your brain cells. This simply isn't true. Tylenol is a drug. Caffeine is a drug. Antibiotics are a drug. It's such hypocrisy to say that only drugs that effect consciousness are bad. Sure, there are drugs that are toxic to the brain and thus do kill brain cells. Instead of listing such substances he just classifies 'Drugs' as killing brain cells period. Factually and morally wrong. Some drugs have actual proven the ability to generate brain cells. Others have zero toxicity, and have shown capable of making connections between areas of the brain that normally would never talk. These connections can cure things like PTSD and OCD which he ironically showed scans for moments later\earlier
QXCI/SCIO's. One of the best diagnostic machines around, and entirely non-invasive. I can call up some friends of mine, and for $180.00, get a 2 hour analysis, including live blood analysis, and iridological assessment. I don't even have to go in for follow-ups.
