  1. What exactly is Rotogenflux Methods? How does this thing really work? I notice lots of people keep on talking about this iq course.

  2. Brain illness is nothing more than DISTORTED THINKING. THINKING ABOUT PERSONAL EVENTS that NEED TO BE PROCESSED: HEARD & honored & shown DIGNITY to know i am: this person is significant for a moderate time. We all LIKE ATTENTION. SOCIAL Connection is important. 😃🌹😃👀 Correct? We think it is. Depression is distorted THINKING. Events & CONCERNS not Addressed. Not being heard. Not ENOUGH ATTENTION. CONFIDENCE. IN the KNOW. POOR PLANNING & ORGANIZATION. POOR FOCUS. DISTORTED THINKING. COMPLEX Steps Thinking is COOKING a MEAL. Organizing COMPLEX daily STEPS & forgetting to take showers. Red Flags: distorted thinking. Red flags. Correct. Causes. Distorted THINKING. TALK Therapy to FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED to them or to someone they were attached to. We NEED TALK ATTENTION. WE R HUMAN. 😃👍🌹👀 & LISTEN.

  3. Not too informative. Very basic stuff I think most everyone already knows. I was hoping for more specifics like what NOT to eat. There's a lot of brain and organ damaging food out there which I am aware of that I was hoping he would cover. It's nice to have a professional reinforce and expound on what I already know.

  4. I can save you all an hour of your lives by summing this up. Do regular moderate to intense exercise often. It improves bloodflow to the brain. Do puzzles and keep learning things such as languages and skills and new information and keep your brain active to keep it young. Engage in active socialization with others regularly. Stimulating conversation helps. Eat omega-3 fatty acids, a mediterranean diet & fruits and berries. Try to keep drug-free. The end.

  5. You skiped importance of mindfulness meditation and fasting in prevention of memory related problems.Also the lecture was too lengthy.But overall you have done a great job.

  6. how could any one give this a thumbs down ,this is a very articulate awsome lecture ,he put my mind to rest . so to speak !!!

  7. Good info the greatest info that I have ever had was by using the Magic Focus Plan (i found it on google) – definately the no.1 info i've tried.

  8. I think it was rather reassuring that there are normal changes we should not get upset over and there are changes we should watch out for, in ourselves and others.

  9. Surprisingly, I was very disappointed with with the lecture. The content of his lecture and lack of directly quoting the studies he refers to lost my interest very quickly. I've watched dozens of UCSF mini medical lecture here on YouTube and while many are excellent and a few are average; this is the first one I can honestly say I found to provide negligible useful information at best.

  10. Dr. Motarjemi finally stated what I have known for over a decade: Statins can cause cognitive problems. Cholesterol is critical in the repair of the brain and nervous system. If the body is producing it (dietary changes prove this), the body is trying to repair SOMETHING. The problems arise when Silica is present in the blood, from mined table salt or other sources. This is glass, a crystal that does not dissolve in the human body. It, in fact, punctures small holes in the arteries which are then patched with cholesterol. These plaques then cause the narrowing of the arteries that is blamed on cholesterol. That is like blaming the Band-Aid for the wound.  Another serious problem with Statins is chronic pain. If it does not occur in the first week, or is less than life threatening, then statins are not considered as a cause. Without a trauma it is likely to be considered a psychiatric condition. The patient is likely already having difficulty thinking and if they do not happen to see a Lipitor commercial they will stay in pain. Then the patient is left without pain support and continues to degenerate. Silica is a major player is high blood pressure as well. It is logical once the arteries are coated with lipids. The brain is at least 60% cholesterol. If you deprive an aging brain of the building blocks to repair itself then it is a medically induced injury to that person. The problem is not cholesterol, it is lack of activity and nutrient rich food. The medications that are given require eliminating grapefruit which would help clean out cholesterol.  The lecture seems to approach the subject as if the listener knows nothing. You do need to fill in all of the blanks with the average T.V. watching third grade mind. I would  like to hear more of what he knows but not what is available in a pamphlet.   This is not medical advise, it is just my opinion, talk to your doctor before trying anything you find on the internet.

  11. Ignore first 20 minutes unless you need a minute explanation of the difference between forgetfulness and dementia.

  12. 9 hour long intro. Guess what, I'm fine, I don't care about the video, here, have a dislike.
    I'm going to read a fucking paper, on the same thing, instead of being bored to tears.

  13. interesting information ! I think that , we can keep our memory by the loving kindness , the pity , the compassion , the sympathy , the equanimity ; when we hate somethings , or we try to forget all the bad things , bad actions that we have done , or we have received from the others , our memory can change as we like and dislike ;

  14. Very pleasant and smooth talk with the speaker never claiming to know all but is very well informed….
