YAPClassic: Daniel Amen on Healing Past Traumas and Building Brain-Healthy Habits
When Dr. Daniel Amen was a young child, his father killed a goat Daniel dearly loved, and served it to him for dinner two days later. Years later, when Daniel was walking through a street market in Mexico, he smelled goat meat, and he was immediately catapulted back to this terrible memory. Why did this happen? In this episode of YAPClassic, Daniel breaks down how trauma imprints itself on the brain and how to heal it. He also talks about his perspective on marijuana and alcohol and gives actionable advice on improving your brain’s health.
