I wish that I would have read this book years ago. Very eye opening to me. I wish that main doctors would practice this type of treatment. The only thing I did want Dr. Amen to discuss more about was how to treat these conditions more without traditional medicine. I believe there are plenty of food, nutrient and holistic alternatives that can help many of these conditions also. Although I did find out that he does recommend more of these alternatives in his other books. I am a Dr. Amen fan for life!
This is an amazing book that will change how you view the world and how you view your own thoughts and behaviors. An amazing book that will give you insight into why some people behave the way they do.
Effective solutions now
I really wish this audio came with what I feel is MISSING a PDF COMPANION of all the QUESTIONNAIRES that help you or a doctor identify where brain imbalances may be present. This is the ONLY reason I did not give this book a FIVE star rating.
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.
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.
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?
