In Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt) they wrote extensively on the four brains and how they coordinated functions. The reptilian brain, the Mammalian brain and the PFC.
It was most interesting to hear how dr Amen and the modern SPECT scans are confirming some of the most important brain functions especially the PFC.
I also learned a great deal about how modern Psychology should and can cork in a more holistic Manor. I think the physical function of everyone's brain should be looked at. Not as often as blood work is ordered but as part of a GP's SOP FOR BASELINE psychological understanding of a patients body and mind picture.
Yes because it is packaged with information to help people with mental health issues.
Excellent book to listen/read to increase your knowledge on how the brain/mind works and solve issues faced with mental health.
Kudos to Dr. Amen for writing such a useful book for the common man.
what Dr amen claims is very controversial and is more broscience designed to scam money from people than some revolutionary method. his method doesn't have much diagnostic specifity and most neuroscientists would laugh it off. also in the end those with mental illness have to take the same pills no matter what patterns show up.
he really strikes me as a Dr Oz character who is more about making money and having mass appeal than being dedicated to science.
I love it. I learned a lot and actually have the hard copy book as well because I suffer from multiple brain issues but I am functional with a successful career. This was very helpful for me and I actually listen to it over and over again because one of those brain issues is memory dysfunction in which I am unable to retain information. It was literally going in one ear and out the other as I was listening so I have to go back and repeat everything frequently however all in all it's great and it's highly recommended.
WOW Amazing. Dr. Amen discovered how to diagnose a “mental illness” and “Zoloft deficiency” just by looking at the brain scans. Just WOW!!!. I bet Dr Amen is a kind of doctor that will tell you how amazing is electric shock therapy is if PG&E gave him some money. I think this Doc just discovered the next best thing. I am pretty sure that he can tell you if someone has a Zoloft or a Prozac deficiency just by looking at their picture.
I have no problem with doctors that push prescription drugs that live somewhere in boondocks and have few patients that they can torture with their “medicine”. The problem is when they publish this nonsense to general public. The catchy title did get me. Then I waste 15 minutes of my time listening to this nonsense and waste another 30 seconds requesting a refund.
As a doctor I would assume that it would be my responsibility to educate myself by other ways than reading medical journals that are sponsored by pharmaceutical industry.
This explains so much. Loved it! I hope he writes a second one.
All of the stories about how people have been helped.
this medical doctor only talks about prescription drugs.
he's probably being paid by the big pharma.
let's all get addicted.
why you think only drugs can heal?
