Dr. Daniel Amen is a 12x NY Times Bestselling Author, Psychiatrist, & Founder of Amen Clinics. Too often mental healthcare attempts to medicate as a solution to a problem they don’t seem to understand. Dr. Amen seeks to adjust that style of thinking by analyzing the brain the way we would approach any other physical ailment. Taking a biological approach to psychiatry, the doctor attempts to remove the stigma of “mental illness” and replace it with “brain health” in a way he believes can be treated, in many situations, without pharmaceutical interference. With a focus not only on the trauma and complications of adulthood but also on those from childhood that may even lend to patients’ current struggles, this episode delivers a dose of education and scientific study to the everyday brain health issues that plague so many of us. Whether you’re caught up inside depressed through quarantine, or forced to work in the middle of a pandemic spiking your anxiety, maybe you’ll find some relief in what the doctor has to say.
