Win the Daily Battle for Your Health

Win the Daily Battle for Your Brain Health

The brain-body connection is real and more apparent than you might think. While some disease is hereditary, bad health is often born out of unhealthy choice and behaviors. When your brain suffers, so does your body, but it’s never too late to change your brain, and your life.

Alzheimer’s disease is expected to triple by 2050, and there is no cure on the horizon. Alzheimer’s disease affects 50 percent of people age eighty-five and older. If you are fortunate to live until you are eighty-five or beyond you have a one-in-two chance of losing your mind along the way. To make matters worse, recent brain-imaging research has demonstrated that Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia actually start in the brain decades before you have any symptoms.

Depression is one of the greatest killers of our time. It affects 50 million Americans at some point in their lives and has increased 400 percent since 1987. Depression is associated with suicide, divorce, job failure, heart disease, obesity, and dementia. Depression doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in women and quadruples it in men.

Attention deficit disorder (ADD), also called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is now being diagnosed more frequently than ever. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that nearly one in five high-school-age boys and 11 percent of school-age children overall have received a diagnosis of ADD, including an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of six and seventeen. Many people underestimate the devastating consequences of ADD. Yet, when left untreated, it is associated with school underachievement and failure (35 percent never finish high school), drug and alcohol abuse, job failure, divorce, incarceration, obesity, depression, and dementia.

Obesity is a serious national crisis with two-thirds of Americans over- weight and one-third obese. Obesity increases inflammation, which is a low-level fire in the body that destroys our organs and is a risk factor for more than thirty medical illnesses, including cancer, diabetes, depression, and dementia. There are many published studies, including two by the research team at Amen Clinics, that report as your weight goes up, the size and function of your brain go down.

If you are not a warrior for the health of your brain and the brains of those who depend on you, ADD, depression, dementia, premature aging, diabetes, obesity, and premature death are the consequences for your loved ones and yourself. Do not be a victim; if you are ready to start fighting for yourself and your loved ones we can help you! Call Amen Clinics at 888-288-9834 or visit us at online.

  2. I follow Dr. Amen and his protocols are life changing. Exercise, an unprocessed, mostly plant based diet and supplements such as 5 HTP, circumin, D3, MSM, B6 and 12 Are brain and body healthy. It’s work to care for our God given body and brain.

  4. I enjoy your articles and listen often to your podcasts on iTunes. I’m 57, married and have 5 grown children. I was diagnosed with dyslexia in the early ’70s after being held back in first grade. My diagnosis for ADD happened along side of of my oldest son (now 33). My life has been a series of struggles though I’ve always stayed busy with my family and my husband. Most jobs I’ve had I’ve been fired from, go figure!
    Now, my youngest two (twin daughters) are juniors in college (both are dyslexic and ADD) and I’m going CRAZY! I’ve got no direction, yet so much to do at home (I’m the handy, creative, good cook). No social life. I’ve got friends or at least people that are kind to me though never instigate contact or invitations. Weird friends to have. I find myself so depressed and lonely.
    My husband is 68 and plans on retiring in 2-3 yrs (or when we can afford it). I wish I could contribute financially instead of always costing my husband hundreds each month.
    When I was younger I wished someone would look into my brain and tell me what to do, how to learn, how to be successful with numbers, improve my memory and help to learn padiatry. This way I’ll be able to be able to easily remove my foot from my mouth when necessary, lol.
    My extended family is in turmoil and it gives me such pain and I grieve for my sisters. My parents raised us with vary little money in an affluent town outside NYC in Connecticut. We couldn’t keep up with “the Jones” and they struggled to find the tutors, camps and programs for me. Recently, it was revealed how my siblings felt about all the attention my parents gave me just to keep up in school. I’m sure my sisters don’t rember the anxiety, the bloody rashes on my hands and my legs I had and how I’d cry myself to sleep most nights. While my friends all took the SAT tests I had to come up w/ a story why I wasn’t taking it. It just wasn’t a possibility in 1979.
    I’ve signed up for several online programs including one of yours yet, can’t manage to find the time participate in them.
    HELP! I’m failing at this chapter of my life. We need friends and a social life, we need some purpose. Most of all I need to find something to do where I can help bring in $$, use my creativity, and really give me some sense of pride.
    Ahh, the challenges of being a combo dysfunctional person!
    If your ever in need of testers for your SPECT studies call me, contact me, or send a smoke signal, I’ll be there in a flash.
    Restin Va. is about an hour away and NYC IS 4 hours away. We’re just north of Baltimore Md.
    So now you know my story, I hope you can help me. Look to hearing from you soon.
