Short Description:

In CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY, award winning psychiatrist and bestselling author Dr. Daniel Amen gives you 10 very simple steps that will help you: live longer, look younger, be thinner, and decrease your risk for Alzheimer’s disease, depression, heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

If you want a better body the first place to start is by having a better brain. The first secret is that most weight problems occur between your ears.

The second secret is that there is not one brain pattern associated with being overweight:  There are at least five different patterns.  And knowing about your own specific brain will make losing weight and keeping it off a whole lot easier.

In this 4-part 80 minute program, Dr. Amen gives viewers 10 steps to have a better brain and a better body.

CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY is the highly anticipated program that will inspire audiences to explore the many ways they, their family and friends, can boost their brains to improve their health.

This pledge event was produced by KQED, with Dr Amen and pledge host Camille Dixon.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
