In his latest book, “Use Your Brain to Change Your Age,” he explains that we all have the power to slow or even reverse the aging process.
Dr. Amen says the fountain of youth is right between our ears. Your brain makes the good decisions to keep you healthy and alive for a long time or it makes the bad decisions to die early. Dr. Amen says the power rests with you as to which decisions your brain will make.
He explains how he developed “brain envy” 20 years when he first saw a scan of his own brain and how it started him on the path to make his brain healthy.
