"Dr. Amen's Brain Health Trainer program has been an invaluable and essential addition to my curriculum as both an elementary school teacher and facilitator of parenting workshops.

David J. Verified Buyer


Amen University Brain Health Licensed Trainer Course

"I have always been interested in overall health and wellness, yet until I found Dr Amen’s work and his programs like the Brain Warrior’s Way, Brain Fit for Work and Life and others, I was left adrift in a sea of hard to navigate nutritional information. With Dr Amen’s approach to the 4 Pillars of the Biological, Psychological, Social and Spiritual as the keys to living a fulfilled life, I now have a powerful rudder with which to navigate my way to making well informed life affirming choices every day. I now have a vehicle to effectively deliver this life changing knowledge to my family, my community and the clients that I serve."


Stanley D. Verified Buyer


Amen University Brain Health Licensed Trainer Course

"The work and resources that Dr. Amen has provided, has reiterated the foundation of the way we interact in everything we do. It all comes down to the function and health of the brain. What we put in our bodies matters to how we function, and more importantly, how our brains function. One of the simple yet highly effective tools is removing the ANT’s from our mind, this has been revolutionary with my clients, because they have discovered how many of these ants ruin their perfect settings and take over, they now have a practical tool to use. Also the creating of “Anchoring Images” has been a visual reminder of the “why” making brain envy the basis of creating the life we were created for."
