A lot of interesting things were discussed with Daniel Amen, MD on the webinar last night. Including the differences between the male and female brain, how balancing your hormones can strengthen your nervous system, and why some anxiety may actually be good for your brain.
There were 8,774 viewers and it was exciting to see how much of the globe tuned in. Many countries were involved, including:

The comment board is buzzing with 116 (at the time of this writing) insightful takes on my webinar with Daniel, and I just wanted to highlight a few that stuck out to me.
“Glad to hear some confirmation that thyroid functions, Vitamin D, and hormones all play such a vital role in our mental health. For me the concept of the ‘Dinosaur Brain’ made a lot of sense. First thing this morning, I decided to cut down my sugar consumption radically. Refreshing to hear, unashamedly, the spiritual aspect brought into this academic discussion. Daniel, keep up the Good work!”
– Gene Kol, Psychotherapist & Lifestyle Consultant, UK
“I found the information from Dr. Amen to be fascinating! How the brain responds to our diets, hormone levels, and stress was very good information. While we often hear about the negative effects of sugar I’m not sure that most of us are aware of the prevalence. I also thought the information on consuming ‘healthy fats.’ while not new, directed us to cause and effect insights. Thank you for this great series. I look forward to the next presentations.”
– Donna Holz, Social Work, Pewaukee, WI
“I was most impressed with today’s presentation and consider it a gold mine to have access to the quality of presenters. So much valuable information. I particularly liked the debrief at the end with Ronald Seigel and Kelly McGonigal. Some very different perspectives. Ruth you also did an excellent job. I look forward to next week. Thank you”
– Melinda, Spry Transitions Coach
“As a psychotherapist, I think this information will help depersonalize highly charged couples in my office.”
– Stacy Korfist, Branches Center for Counseling, Redondo Beach & Temecula, California
“Thank you for this presentation. It was very interesting to hear how hormonal changes may affect the brain as well as male/female differences. I think that it was important that Ron and Kelly tempered the ultimate course as how to manage hormonal brain changes.”
– Robert Haile, MD, Costa Rica
