Tame Your Hidden Dragon with Dr. Daniel Amen

Today, I am blessed to have Dr. Amen join the show. Dr. Amen has helped millions of people change their brains and lives through his health clinics, best-selling books, products, and public television programs.Dr. Amen is one of America’s leading psychiatrists and brain health experts. He has authored or coauthored 70 professional articles and more than 30 books, includingNew York Timesmega-bestsellerChange Your Brain, Change Your Life. He has appeared on numerous television shows, includingDr. Phil, Larry King, Dr. Oz, The Doctors,andThe View.In this episode, Dr. Amen opens the show speaking about his work with SPECT brain imaging. He explains what sorts of things can affect our brain negatively, especially when it comes to smoking marijuana. On Dr. Amen’s journey, he’s gotten a lot of negativity directed at him from his peers. Luckily, he has learned to push through the negativity using his 18/40/60 principle. Tune in as we talk about how being a celebrity can affect the brain, and we discover whatdragonsare making you sad, mad, nervous, or out of control. Don’t forget to get Dr. Amen’s latest book,Your Brain Is Always Listening.[06:40] About Dr. Amen’s Work With SPECT ImagingIn the 1990s, Dr. Amen started using a study called SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography). SPECT is a nuclear medicine study that looks at blood flow and activity to identify underlying brain issues that can contribute to symptoms accurately.It basically shows us three things:Good activityToo little activityToo much activitySPECT completely revolutionized how Dr. Amen treated his patients and how he treated himself.Dr. Amen came to realize that mental health was actually brain health – this realization changed everything!After working on people with substance abuse issues, Dr. Amen noticed that their scans just look terrible.So, Dr. Amen wanted to know what different drugs did to the brain. He took a healthy group and compared them to a marijuana group. In the marijuana group - every area of their brains was lower, particularly the hippocampus, which is the brain's major memory structure.What are the factors that accelerate aging in the brain? First, schizophrenia. Second, marijuana!If you smoke pot as a teenager, you have a higher incidence of anxiety, depression, and suicide in your 20s.[16:55] Pushing Through Negativity On Your JourneyDr. Amen has been able to push forward through all of the negativity in life. Sadly, so many people in his space talk down on him.It was quite the wild ride until he stopped paying attention to it.Early on, Dr. Amen realized there's not one kind of depression; there are seven kinds of depression. Based on imaging, there are seven types of ADD. Plus, there are six different types of addicts. These ideas are pushing against the status quo.Plus, some of the medications Dr. Amen was taught to prescribe were toxic for brain function!Sadly, people think Dr. Amen is crazy because he says you should not make diagnoses based on symptom clusters with no biological data.Dr. Amen says he doesn’t care if you like him or not anymore. Basically, if you’re a doctor and don't look at your patients' brains, then shame on you!“When I stopped paying attention to what people said about me, I just got so much happier.” -Dr. Amen[24:00] About The 18/40/60 PrincipleWhen you're18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you; when you're40, you don't give a darn what anybody thinks of you; when you're60, you realize nobody’s been thinking about you at all.People spend their days worrying and thinking about themselves, not you.If someone criticizes you, they're only thinking about it for a short period of time.Also, if someone is criticizing you, then they actually don't know you at all.[26:00] Brain Challenges For CelebritiesCelebrities suffer from high stress, especially when becoming famous at a young age like, Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus. Their pleasure centers get worn out. Your pleasure centers deepen the brain to an area in the basal ganglia called the nucleus accumbens; it responds to dopamine.When you're a worldwide star, you are getting a lot of dopamine production from people recognizing you and you signing big contracts. With child stars, this is before their brains are actually finished developing.The more dopamine that hits those pleasure centers, the more it deadens them.[29:00] The Importance of Delayed GratificationWalter Mitchell is a professor at Stanford. He did this experiment with four-year-olds. Basically, the kids could agree to get a marshmallow now. However, if they can wait a little bit, then they would get two marshmallows.The kids that opted to wait to get more marshmallows were significantly more successful in virtually every area of their lives because they had impulse control.[33:40] The Detriments On The Frontal LobePorn is wearing out your pleasure centers – it will deaden those centers.You have to be very thoughtful when it comes to the brain.The real weapons of mass destruction are highly processed pesticide spray, high-glycemic, low-fiber food substances.Sadly, 72% of us overweight, and 42% of us obese. It's the biggest brain drain in the history of the United States.[36:15] About Dr. Amen’s Daily RoutinesAs soon as Dr. Amen’s feet hit the floor in the morning, he says to himself, “today is going to be a great day.”He starts the day by lifting weights. Then, he puts amazing foods into his body.Dr. Amen only loves foods that love him back.[42:00] Relationship AdviceYou only want to be in a relationship where the person loves you back.If a relationship isn’t working, you have to be honest.Are you unhappy? Then, it’s time to be honest with your partner and with yourself.In a relationship, you need to know what you want. Then, ask yourself: does your behavior get you what you want?Basically, make sure that your actions align with your aspirations.[47:40] About Dr. Amen’s Relationship With His FatherDr. Amen had a complex relationship with his dad. His dad’s favorite word was no. His second favorite word was bullshit.As a child, Dr. Amen was angry at his dad.Eventually, Dr. Amen healed the relationship with his father.It was a complicated relationship, and when he died, Dr. Amen was really sad.[54:15] Know Your DragonsEveryone has a dragon. The most common one is the anxious dragon.The second most common one, which was a surprise, is the responsible dragon. That's where you feel like you have to take care of other people. You can actually breed codependency if you're not careful with that dragon.Also, the wounded dragon is really common.AND MUCH MORE!Resources from this episode:As always, if you got value from today's conversation, please let us know by subscribing and sharing the show.

Optimize Your Health and Happiness with Adam Kramer

Today, I am blessed to have here with me, Adam Kramer. Adam Kramer helps businesses create connections that make them money. He is a senior-level business development executive with a keen entrepreneurial instinct and over twenty years of experience selling and building a service brand in the healthcare sector.In this episode, we jump right into the most significant ways in which Adam has been challenging himself recently. Adam reveals the crucial lessons that he has learned on his journey and some things you can implement into your own life. Later, we talk about Adam's work in the healthcare industry, including their up-and-coming innovative genetics test for Covid. Tune in as we speak about healthy living for cancer prevention, the healing power of nature, and the importance of staying present.[05:15] Adam’s Most Significant ChallengesThe biggest way that Adam has been challenging himself is by being strict with his routine.The other way that Adam has been challenging himself is by breaking things down into tiny habits. He likes to start small to make a big difference.For instance, Adam began small by doing ten pushups before his shower. Now, he is doing two-hundred pushups.[09:40] Important Lessons For Enjoying Your JourneyYou need to be grateful for your challenges and be thankful for everything that's happened in the past because it's brought you to where you are today.A key to enjoying your journey is to serve and help others.Another critical lesson to remember on your journey is that you should never harbor hard feelings for anyone. Overall, it doesn't serve you, and it doesn't serve them either. In fact, it will only set you back.Also, you can't hold everybody to the standard that you hold for yourself.Lastly, stop watching the news! Four years ago, Adam stopped watching the news. It has been a tremendous help for enjoying his journey. At the same time, Adam stopped talking negatively about other people - total life-changing habits![19:35] What Adam Is Currently Working OnAdam has been in the healthcare space for over twenty years. He says it’s incredible to see the impact that he has made on people's lives.Adam has always been super passionate about innovative healthcare. The stuff that he works with is on the cutting edge.After moving to Australia, Adam landed at a really innovative genetics company. Their company helps people get insight into their risk of developing certain diseases. That way, people can take action today to prevent them from ever coming up to the surface.[43:10] The Key To Surviving CancerEarly detection is the key to surviving cancer.For almost any cancer, when you catch it early, we have a medicine that can save your life.Cancer prevention goes back to perspective and consistency when it comes to our lifestyle habits.What you put in your mouth is in your microbiome. There is a direct correlation between diet and all these chronic diseases. Cancer eats sugar; that's the bottom line. If you cut off the source, then cancer will die.Eating right and having a healthy lifestyle is the biggest game-changer as far as cancer prevention goes.[52:20] Future Covid TestingAdam and his team are working on a Covid test that will tell you how bad you will be if you get Covid. The test will also predict if you'll end up in the hospital or not.In Melbourne, everyone is locked up. However, only 5% of people really need to be locked up.Lock up has devasting health impacts and economic impacts. We need to get back to work! Hopefully, this test will be a solution.When we know who is at high risk, we can prioritize the vaccine.[55:20] Educating Children About Healthy EatingYou don’t need to force your children to eat healthy foods. Instead, you should be a role model and eat healthily.When we set an example, we don’t need all these different laws in place. For instance, sodas in schools. Yes, our children shouldn’t be drinking soda. However, are the adults in their life drinking soda? Children need healthy role models!Leading by example is the key to a healthier planet.[66:40] Ways of Living an Authentic LifeFace your fears and stop caring about what other people think!This is who you are, and it’s not going to change.Use your knowledge and help other people.There is goodness in everyone, and it's just about unlocking it.We have so much potential that people don't even realize.There are tools that help you realize your full potential and your max potential – use them!We have one life to live; we should live it to the max.[72:20] Nature Is The Best MedicineNature is the best medicine; that is where all healing comes from. Sadly, we haven't even discovered all of it.We don't know what's in the ocean!Every day we're discovering new species and new things that we had no clue about.Everything is really in nature; we just don't know about it yet.Motion changes your emotions – get out in nature.[77:30] Maintaining A Healthy RelationshipAdam says that you've got to go all in.Communication is absolutely critical for success in relationships.Life is not scripted; life is meant to be lived and experienced. So, make sure that you are living in the present moment.When we focus on the now, and the present moment, that will help ground you. That way, we always have the best possible reaction.[82:50] All About Fear-SettingFeeling fearful? Ask yourself: what’s the worst thing that can happen? What's the best that can happen?The ultimate thing is to take action!Worst case scenario, you will learn something.Make a mindset shift to help overcome fears.AND MUCH MORE!Resources from this episode:As always, if you got value from today's conversation, please let us know by subscribing and sharing the show.
