Pastor Rick asks Dr. Daniel Amen, a leading expert on brain health, about how the brain impacts physical, emotional, and cognitive health. Dr. Amen says factors like mental stress, lack of sleep, vitamin D deficiencies and timing of food intake all play a role. But he also emphasizes that the key to health is motivation, and Pastor Rick shares his primary motive for making health a priority in the Decade of Destiny campaign.

Much thanks. I believe the information Dr. Amen shares is going to be vital for every person that partakes of these interviews. His knowledge of and careing for his fellowman can only be a true gift from our Creator. His God given purpose is being fulfilled everyday as he ministers to those that seek his help. Your choice of having Dr. Amen's wisdom as a part of your "Daniel Plan" is one of the smartest things ever. I pray many listen and learn. May our Heavenly Father greatly Bless those that partake. Blessing to All who are working to bring this project to everyone...

Dr. Amen is great! My favorite phrase from Dr. Amen is that Rick is a national treasure. I knew then Dr. Amen was highly intelligent!J

I was not familiar with Dr. Amen, so I really enjoyed this interview. What he is saying makes so much sense -- it is just hard to put it into action. But, God willing, I am ready to start!

At last some honesty about not only the causes of obesity but some simple life style corrective measures that can help us. A new way of thinking, that will hopefully change and lengthen many lives.

I found the interview both informative and interesting. I was really inspired by Pastor Rick's committment when he said "I want to do this not only for my own health but also for the health of the church"; indeed Pastor Rick is not only a national treasure, but is also a living testimony of what God desires from us ..."know we not that our body is the temple of the Holy spirt. I wish you well Dr. Rick.
