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.

Free Brain Health Audit

Brain health is your most critical asset. Your brain is the organ of learning, loving and behaving. When your brain works right, you work right. When your brain is troubled, you are much more likely to have trouble in your life. Unfortunately, many people do not think about the health of their brains and subsequently the rest of their lives suffer. See how well you score.

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 brain types. And knowing about your own specific brain will make losing weight and keeping it off a whole lot easier.

In this 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.
