In Episode 78 I sit down with Neurologists, Drs Dean & Ayesha Sherzai for a second episode on brain health (previously guests for Episode 64). I cannot even begin to describe how brilliant these guys are.

In this information packed 2 hour episode we talk about:

• Creating an environment to help kids flourish
• The importance of sleep for brain health
• Tips for optimising sleep
• Why it's important to be able to hyper focus
• How to improve focus
• Removing inhibitions and the practice of 'fearless' living
• What we should be eating
• and much more.

What makes these two qualified to speak about brain health?

Dean Sherzai, MD, PhD, is co-director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University. Dean trained in Neurology at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and completed fellowships in neurodegenerative diseases and dementia at the National Institutes of Health and UC San Diego. He also holds a PhD in Healthcare Leadership with a focus on community health from Andrews University.
