Dr. Sanjay Gupta was recently talking to Deepak Chopra about how to turn your brain into a super brain.
There are ways for the brain to heal and change itself.
He was talking about neuroplasticity and how it can lead a person to regain control of one side of their body that was originally paralyzed in a stroke.
The brain is able to build new neural pathways to allow us to function normally, even after serious trauma.
Through lifestyle changes, we can even begin to turn certain genes on and off!
You could disable genes that lead to cancer while enabling genes that rev up your metabolism!
Check out the video (above) to hear some very smart guys talk about how to get a super brain!

Honey tastes great on chicken nuggets, is the perfect sweetener for tea, and can help soothe your throat, but apparently it can also do wonders for our skin.
Although it has been used for centuries for its antibacterial properties, scientists have just recently discovered it may be better than antibiotics to treat skin infections after an injury or surgery.
In particular, Manuka honey has been found to stop one type of bacteria called Streptococcus pyogenes, which is known to "initiate infection, destroy skin grafts and persist as a biofilm."
In fact, it didn't take too much of the sweet goo to kill off the majority of S. pyogenes bacterial cells from wounds, which could be very useful in hospitals where infections run rampant.

It's been a rough road for Zsa Zsa Gabor.
On Friday, her right leg was partially amputated to remove a life-threatening infection. Thankfully, her doctors at UCLA Medical Center said it was a successful surgery.
The doctors added that there were no unexpected difficulties and she's expected to heal, however they will be monitoring her closely because of her age.
We're just glad they were able to stop the infection from spreading.
Zsa Zsa is in our thoughts and prayers and we hope for a speedy recovery.
