Your Brain is Better on Music

 

Have you ever listened to music to relax, study or exercise? If so, you’ve likely experienced the therapeutic benefits of music. In my first TEDx talk I share how scientifically designed music and neurotechnology can facilitate positive changes in brain chemistry, function and structure through the simple practice of listening. But there is more to it than meets the ear.

Watch, listen and discover why children and adults with autism, sleep, depression, learning, emotional, and stress related difficulties are being helped by the power of music to reveal and access their true potential.

This talk features the neuroscience-based music programs we have created at Advanced Brain Technologies, Vital Neuro, and Sleep Genius.

Friday, March 23rd at 1:00 PM EDT, my good friend and science journalist Max Lugavere will join me for a FREE LIVE WEBINAR about Genius Foods which is out everywhere today!

After his mother was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia, Max put his career on hold to learn everything he could about brain health. Desperate for answers, he dedicated himself to uncovering the most up-to-date scientific research, talking to dozens of leading scientists and clinicians around the world, and visiting the country’s best neurology departments—all in the hopes of understanding his mother’s condition.

In Genius Foods, Lugavere now presents a comprehensive guide to brain optimization. In it, he uncovers the link between our dietary and lifestyle choices and our brain function, revealing how the foods you eat directly affect your ability to focus, learn, remember, create, analyze new ideas, and maintain a balanced mood.

Weaving together pioneering research on dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and nutritional psychiatry, Lugavere distills groundbreaking science into actionable lifestyle changes. It’s a two-week plan and lifestyle guide that will shrink your belly and grow your brain. In this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • the nutrients that can boost your memory and improve mental clarity (and where to find them);
  • the foods and tactics that can energize and rejuvenate your brain, no matter your age;
  • how to kick-start a brain-boosting fat-loss method so powerful it has been called “biochemical liposuction”;
  • a technique to improve your fitness (and brain health) in one fifth the gym time; and
  • the foods that can improve your happiness, both now and for the long term.

With Genius Foods, Lugavere offers a cutting-edge yet practical road map to eliminating brain fog and optimizing the brain’s health and performance today—and decades into the future.

Better Sleep: Practical Tips for You and Your Child on the Autism Spectrum

Alex_Doman

A staggering 1 in 68 children is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many of these children suffer severe and debilitating symptoms and are not able to function normally without a lot of specialized help. If you are a parent perhaps your child is one of them. If not, you likely know a family touched by this often-debilitating disorder.

In my 20 + years researching and developing programs to help kids and adults achieve their extraordinary potential I’ve seen countless kids with autism achieve great things in life.  THERE IS HOPE!

That is the message my dear friend Kristin Selby Gonzalez and the team at the Autism Hope Alliance (AHA) have been working hard to bring you and other families affected by autism. This is one of the many reasons I serve on AHA’s Board of Directors.

AHA is putting on the 2nd Annual Autism Hope Summit May 15-20.  In this free, online event, you’ll discover the latest cutting edge brain and gut science, nutritional therapies, and self-care tools that are so powerful they can curb many of the debilitating symptoms of autism, allowing these kids to overcome obstacles and live happy, healthy, and productive lives.

It’s starting soon, and trust me – you do not want to miss this event! I’ll be speaking Monday, May 15, with host Tom Bohager. The topic will be “Better Sleep: Practical Tips for You and Your Child on the Autism Spectrum”. I’m sure sleep is something you never complain about having too much of, and the solutions you’ll learn in this informative talk may help improve bedtime in your own home. You might want to also check out Sleep Genius, our highly-rated iPhone and Android app that was developed following our team’s research helping NASA astronauts sleep better in space.

Mark your calendar: Monday, May 15th through Saturday, May 20th

Hope IS possible. And it’s now more possible, more real, than it’s ever been before.

During the event, you will discover the tools and therapies to help you cultivate a deep, meaningful relationship with your child or loved one, as well as assist them in moving off the autism spectrum.
