Never heard a guy speak SO much sence before !
Psychiatry nearly destroyed my life, as it has done so with many others. I'm not religious but 10 years ago I found meditation and it changed my life
Aaron Lim
Amazing speech by this doctor, I was captivated from start to finish. Content-wise, the most interesting and important Tedx Talk I have had the good fortune of watching. I hope the world pays attention to this and implements the necessary changes eloquently and passionately put forth by this doctor in the fields of medical science.

It is important to remember that this gentleman did not use a single bit of empirical evidence to support his claims. There are many other mechanisms at play in nuro functioning, many of which do not show up in scans of any kind.
Ted Bundy had a small benign brain tumor.
Doan Trinh
One of the best Ted / Tedx talks.
Carol White
Wow! just wow! Very cool!
Scott Beil

Andrew Johnson

William Miller
As a baby, fell out of a 2 story window. Then, when 8 years old, mentally handicapped cousin split my head open with a rake accidentally. I was then diagnosed with ADHD and depression but never seemed to get the 'right treatment'. Had many problems in school, wound up going to jail as a teenager. So I truly believe this, wish I'd had someone like this to help me :-)

this change the paradigm of mental illness
Don't fall into this trap! I really liked this story, but his "research" is not validated in credible scientific journals, I found out.
Look him up on Wikipedia and see for yourself!
Many of those people described would never be able to afford such scans thats the real issue
Diana Boughner
Excellent topic, explanation, and medical incentives to get out of the rut of dogmatic thinking about mental/emotional/psychological difficulties in humans. Thank you so much for your courage and determination to finally figure this trauma based physical cause for adverse behaviours out and stand your ground when pressure was put on to step back from your discoveries, methods, and understandings 👍👍💖

They don’t want people to know this information...because then they won’t make huge profits off of the medications.

How do you rehab a brain?

I See Dead People: Dreams and Visions The most important lesson from 1 day ago   17:26

Dr. Christopher Kerr speaks at a 2015 TEDx event Buffalo, New York.

Dr. Christopher W. Kerr is the Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, where he has worked since 1999. His background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’ dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically ignored, these near universal experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led and the death anticipated.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
