      This is an age-old philosophical pickle. I felt disappointed the questioning of our concepts (illness-personality-mind-body etc.) is totally ignored in this talk. It seems who we are to Amen is what our brain looks like. That is quite the claim and it raises a lot of questions, unanswered in this TedTalk

      I agree. I understand more of what I have learning on my own and changing myself thru vitamin therapy and dietary changes. No doctor has said anything to me about what I have found out on my own. I still have some anxiety and some sleep issues but no major mental issues exists. They had me on medicines I had to wean myself off of because I was addicted to them. I dont have an addictive personality so it was to accomplish. Blessings

      Unfortunately, The answer will be different for every person, as every brain and every individuals circumstances will be different. There are loads of modalities that one can find listed online. Supplements sure, But more importantly Getting the nutrition you need, so intaking food that allows you to get the nutrients you need without supplements. Neurofeedback can be helpful. Exercise. The list goes on.

      We brought our 9-year-old daughter to the Amen Clinic 22 years ago, and they were able to help her a great deal. Fast-forward to today; she repeated the SPECT scan, but this time the results have not been very impressive. Maybe it's just the counselor (or whatever they call them) who is handling her case, but it's not working. The problem is that correlation is not causation. The human brain is far more complex than that.

      Dr. Amen is a compelling speaker, and there are many aspects of his approach that make a lot of sense to me. That's why we brought our daughter there. But it's not a panacea, and while our experience with him is better than that of traditional psychiatry, the recent results have been disappointing thus far. But perhaps it will take time.

      I can tell you this much: we're seeing better results with cognitive behavior therapy (the "Albert Ellis school" approach), which in my own experience is the most effective approach to psychology.

      Unfortunately as you look into it, its supplements, medication and other non-proven methods. He is referred to as a "celebrity doctor," something that always raises red flags. I am glad he has been able to help some people, if he has, but if this were truly revolutionary it would not be so niche still, and would be covered by insurance. They would much rather pay for short-term treatment than lifelong regimens of therapy, medications, and hospitalizations. The Dr speaks ill of behavior therapy but does not mention that behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, changes in learning patterns and reinforcement, actually cause structural changes to the brain, in effect "healing" perhaps what he himself is scanning. I was hopeful this was a a new, more measurable and prescriptive way that behavior therapy could be used to help people but a visit to his Wiki page and own website shows its just gimmicky snake oil with some high profile successes.

    This is really fascinating for me, I had a tumour removed from my frontal left lobe in 1991, not only did I have to relearn lots of things I also started swearing something I had never done. For years this was always a struggle to not swear. Last year I fell off a ladder and hit the back of my head requiring five stitches. Within five minutes of speaking to my husband to go to the hospital I realized that I no longer swore, and still don't. Whatever that fall did, it changed damage from the tumour removal.

    This is such an important talk. I worked in mental health most of my nursing career.

And actually being able to change someone's brain-- that's huge!!

      @DianaLynn1961 So here's the deal (and I'M not say he's a huckster) what huckster do is provide a little truth, partial science then says their (and only their) treatment fixes this. Instead when true scientist research and discover something they publish it so that other scientist can replicate the study and see if they get similar results. Two problems currently exist:1) many of the "great studies" have not been replicated, at all. 2) corporations fund a lot of research and won't let studies that do not support their product or desired outcome be published. There is little "pure" research being done and even less money for replication.

      🤔He just pointed out that1) the disease starts in the brain much before its manifestation in the body.
      He depicts the problem only on a brain level.But brain can not be changed through imaging it (or by medication it could get suppressed for a short period of time.then it keeps haunting as in trauma or depression patients.)
      According to Yoga,brain can be changed through pranayam,meditation accompanied by doing good Karmas and channelizing emotions towards Universal love.

    • Tamarahope77
      Tamarahope77 3 months ago +1

      @Ben Cabrera Exactly! The meds are in fact not as effective a solution as they make them out to be. SSRIs (antidepressants) are generally effective for 50% remission rate in one out of every 6 or 7 people they are given to. Just under half of those taking SSRIs will be in remission after 6 months. Psychotherapy is on the whole effective for one out of three and has better relapse prevention, but some therapies are even more effective than that (e.g. EMDR for trauma).

      What about other conditions? Psychotherapy for panic disorder is shown across studies to be more effective than antidepressants or benzodiazepines. Yet if you go to a psychiatrist or an emergency department complaining of panic, you'll be offered medication as the first option.

    • Ben Cabrera

      @Tamarahope77 you sound like you know more about this than I do. I just always thought that it's weird that you don't physically look at an organ and just start prescribing meds for a solution, meds that I've seen personally can have very dangerous side effects. It made sense to me when he mentioned that.

    • Tamarahope77
      Tamarahope77 3 months ago +6

      Poor psychiatrists are in such a pickle - they are trained doctors but their area of specialty are "mental illnesses" that are not organic problems like other medical problems. Looking at a brain will not tell you if a person has a major depressive disorder because major depression is not caused by a brain dysfunction. A tumour in the brain, which can be seen in a SPECT scan, can be the cause of personality changes and behavioral difficulties, but they account for a very small percentage of people with mental illnesses. If every person who turns up in a mental health unit gets scanned, it would be a waste of funds as most mental disorder presentations are not caused by brain tumours.

    Impecable!! Emocionante!! Tambien la facultad de psicología debería IMPLEMENTAR materias especializadas en Spect Cerebral, aunque el psicólogo no suministre recetas farmacológicas también DEBERÍA (desde mi punto de vista es IMPRESCINDIBLE) conocer de que se trata mas profundamente la funcionalidad y actividad especifica cerebral. Lamentablemente en Argentina continuamos demasiado enamorados del psicoanálisis como para ampliar horizontes, y esta simple postura retrasa horrores tanto en el diagnostico como en el tratamiento. Y si esto se divulgase, también haría que el ciudadano común (me refiero al no profesional de la salud mental) fuese mas comprensivo frente al sufrimiento de su semejante ¡GRACIAS DOCTOR DANIEL AMEN!

      The CHANGE Providers 2 years ago

      TBH I love Dr Amen’s philosophy and the personalized treatment approach does make sense. I’m just not so sure the SPECT imaging gives as much reliable information as he portrays. They have even called to question the information from fMRIs which was a bigger hit because more doctors supported that modality. I still use the premises in conversation because it can be helpful when talking about brain development. The thing is when I first listened to Dr Amen his philosophy and manner of speak resonated with my own. I was turned off when he talked about SPECT imaging because he used it to make the situation “real” for his patients. The true benefit to appropriate therapy is in making the situation real for patients and those around them and rebuilding a lot of the psychosocial building blocks that have fallen out of place or were never built up. I am against a med only approach as I’m sure Dr Amen is as well. With my approach I make the situation real for the majority of my patients with talking so much cheaper approach. There are always a small percentage of people whom are in toxic denial of their issues, maybe they could be turned to belief with an imaging study. Bottom line is very few people (especially general practitioners whom are the frontline as I am) see mental health in the way that I do and manage and speak to patients in the way that I do. We did a survey amongst 78 of my colleagues about communication and connecting with patients. I was only 1 of 3 whom scored above 90%. 40 scored less than 20%. If you can’t even connect with your patient you cannot help them even with the right approach. That survey alone was telling and we again are generalists whom main job is coordinating care and communication. I’m sure these statistics hold close if you assess the broader body of physicians. We all overestimate our own abilities and underestimate those of others but the people’s whom opinions truly matter are our patients.

      ​@Arthur Ashy Honestly, I'm not convinced psychiatry is a scam or that the only people who benefit from it are the 1% or that it's been "abused," though of course that's subjective. I guess maybe I just need to be more educated about the subject, but that's why I defended legitimate medicine.

      I also don't know why "looking at the brain" could be useful. I mean, if you have a brain tumor or a blood clot or something, then go see a physician, that's not a psychiatrist's job.

      ​@Mike Detrick In countries that have normal health care, such as my country Croatia, you go to your doctor and ask for a scan referral and get it. The doctor himself directed you to additional tests to cover everything, you have been waiting for some tests for a couple of months. You don’t have to take out a bank loan or go bankrupt to do checkups and get treated.

      That’s the problem w/ modern medicine. I read a book called Cultural Diversity in Health & Illness for college & one of the chapters covered the “white coat culture” that we know so well in the States. Hospital systems are confusing, the bills are overwhelming, modern equipment is so pricey your jaw would drop if you knew how much it cost, etc. In actuality, you’d probably be better off seeing a witch doctor than an actual one especially if you aren’t loaded w/ cash. Our system is flawed & sometimes they still fail to diagnose the problem correctly as is the case w/ my mother. They think her affliction is rare & possibly unheard of but after countless tests & what not & a mountain of hospital bills later, they chalked it up to asthma because her specialists couldn’t agree w/ each other & kept arguing back & forth. It’s not like the show House was- it’s a lot more complicated & bureaucratic than that

    Interesting and troubling at the same time. The Andrew story made the perfect link between scan imaging and treating the condition of the patients. But in the other cases, there was no such obvious connection. That TED talk should have been about those intriguing "brain rehabilitation programs" that he's referring to but never describes. They seem to be the key to curing the patients, much more than Spect imaging.

My family took me to doctors who diagnosed me with twenty different different things over the yeas and they gave me twenty different medications. I have been home eight years, never in trouble again, still suffer bad depression and anxiety.

I always wanted someone to look at my brain because in truth, I love people, always take care of everyone, but......just different to explain

    I am a retired MRI tdchnologist…..and, usually, if a person was having mental issues, their physician would order an MRI of the brain to look for any physical signs, pathology, that might cause their mental problems…..such as the cyst that this Doc says Andrew had. An MRI scan of the brain should always be part of a psychiatric workup when trying to diagnose mental illness. As should a nutrtional workup and questioning of the patient’s physical environment to see if any che,ical toxins present that may have caused the mental problem (if it is a fairly sudden onset)
