Excellent point! I've spent all of 2012 doing prayers and meditation 3-4 x day, and it definitely changes my perspective, renews my spirit, and restores my compassion. And it does not matter what name I give my creator that day, but it does matter that I do it in a spirit of 1) Love; 2) Gratitude; 3) Kindness.

It is unfortunate that such interesting talks, and of so much content, innovative, cannot be heard or translated into Spanish, for those of us who do not have knowledge of that language. Dr. Daniel Amen is an eminence in the new brain imaging psychiatry. It is very enriching, knowing about their experience. It is a pity that FED does not have a translation into Spanish.

This is one of my favourite talks. Because the informations are so helpful and practicable at a daily basis. Prioritise to take care of yourself, which means your mental and physical self. In a praticable way on a daily basis means: take sleeping seriously. Which means, sleep enough. Pay attention to what you eat. Which means eat fresh fruit. Go out into fresh air. Do sports. Look around you. Are the people around you, making you feel happy, feel appreciated? You are able to live the life you want :)

I am convinced that up to the moment I tuned in to this lecture, I had not heard a more comprehensive (within the given time limits) guide of how to have a happy life. Because a healthy body and mind (and this means healthy habits also within the branch of one's psyche = e.g. avoid ANTs) are the basis which allows to stay stable even during hard times. And to all of you, who depreciate this man for the reason he hold to a certain faith: did he mention anything about it during the core segment of the lecture? It seems to me, that there was not a mention of it until he went on to show how one can change the lives of a community. So please be more rational and do not over-react. Thank you Sir for such an inspirational and wise word!

The fact that he does have a faith in Love and good is why he does his good work and wants to help humanity. That's his motivation. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. People commenting on here have no idea what God is so they speak out of pure ignorance. Dr Amen speaks from what he KNOWS to be true. :-)

So, what I take away from this is that in order to have a chance at getting rid of my chronic depression, I just need to follow the health advice I've heard a million times before and am unable to follow because of my chronic depression. Great. But I do appreciate knowing that Amen's advice has helped, is helping and will help lots of people out there who just needed a little extra motivation and inspiration to make some beneficial changes.

I love this talk, and I agree with the major points regarding how a persons environment/choices influence their brain health. However, anyone can see holes in a brains neural activity. I always ask; when did they occur, and how? I am very curious to see the particular stats regarding these before/after brain scans. Age, health, head trauma, drug abuse, etc. I am very concerned about the lack of specifics regarding the transitions between these graphics over time.

One of the best statements he made involved the fact that physicians use X-rays and other tests to analyze injury, however, how many psychiatrists or psychologist use PET scans to analyze a patients/client's brain for their mental health treatment ?!? I would totally agree with this ! The treatment should consist of a PET scan, analyzing behavior, diet, lifestyle, and counseling to get to the core of the issues ! 👍👍
