Dr Oz: Deepak Chopra Brain Myths
Myth: Dr. Oz says that even doctors believe the myth you lose millions of brain cells daily that are never replaced.
Truth: You can increase brain cells as you age.
How it is possible: Deepak Chopra says that while we do lose cells every day, we can still replace and grow more brain cells, which is how you can beat Alzheimer’s.
Dr Oz: Deepak Chopra Rewire Your Brain
Myth: The brain’s hardwiring cannot be changed.
Truth: A person can rewire their brain.
How it is possible: Deepak Chopra says you can rewire brain by simply getting rid of old habits or starting new ones. For example, if you use your right hand to button your shirt, try doing it with your left hand instead or if you draw with your left hand, use your right hand instead.
Even wearing your watch on the opposite hand can help to rewire your brain, according to Deepak. Deepak Chopra says that anyone can rewire their brain and prevent Alzheimer’s. He says the only exception to this is the small 1-2% of the population who has a mutation on the brain making them predisposed to the disease, but as long you are in your 30’s,40’s, or 50’s, it is definitely possible to make the changes to your brain.
Dr Oz: Irreversible Memory Loss?
Myth: Memory loss with age is irreversible.
Truth: You can reverse and prevent memory loss.
How it is possible: Deepak Chopra explains that “felt” memories, or those that caused an emotion, are more powerful than “fact” memories, so “felt” memories are the key to reversing and preventing memory loss. Dr. Oz explains that when we are younger our memories are very organized in our brains and we can access them very easily, but as we age our brain becomes more disorganized causing us to forget things, but this is because are not associating an emotion with what we are doing, according to Deepak Chopra.
He explains that you need to feel an emotion with actions in your life so that you can remember them, like something as simple as parking your car. How many times have you forgotten where you parked your car? Deepak says it is because you are not paying attention, so he says in that moment you have consciously think “ahh, I found a parking space” and you will never forget where you parked your vehicle.
