Like all of Dr. Hyman's work, this latest installment in the Ultra series teaches listeners how to use the body as well as how to heal the body, this time making lifestyle changes that will foster brain function, including memory, mood, and attention span as well as battle everything from brain fatigue to depression.
Like all of Dr. Hyman's titles, The Ultra Mind Solution includes the Seven Keys to Brain Health and a simples six week program that will cleanse, heal and strengthen the brain. Each section has a quiz for the listener to access the affect of each particular key on their brain function, provides a list of diagnostic tests for clinical treatments as well as a how to implement healing solutions from changes in nutrition to supplements, hormones, detoxification, and fighting brain "allergies."

This book will enrich you with some interesting information about the nature of depression and other mental diseases and how some simple life changes can make a difference in your mood. If you want to learn some biology and how the human mind works, this book will also give you some technical explanations that might help you know yourself better. The author did an excellent job in this audiobook - you will listen to it as you are in one of his lectures. There are some "truths" here that you won't see published by the food or pharmaceutical industries... You will be surprised by some of the stories that the author brings in this book. I am now doing the author's "Six Weeks Program" and I am very satisfied with the results.
I'm not usually into Naturopathic ideas, but I really enjoyed this book. The author does a great job explaining how what we put in our bodies affects us. I bought the book after listening to the free sample. I was impressed and the book did not disappoint.
This book is a must read. It provides a natural way to move toward good health. The insight it gives helps to bring clarity to past experiences. It should be a requirement for doctors and the infomation made widespread for all. Earlier knowledge could have made a positive difference in so many lives. Read now, live longer and healthier.
Did not have print version, but the audio edition was EXCELLENT: clear voice, engaging inflections, understandable presentation of complex ideas!
"The Blue Zones" by Dan Buettner gets at the same ideas from a social/cultural perspective. The UltraMind gets to point of how the human biological system works.
Clear voice and instructions to do "self-report" examinations that give you insight into your own unique physiology.
The UltraSuccess Solution: how to be the best that we can be.
If you are interested in the concept of food as preventative medicine, then this book is well worth your time. I am not sure the book's title really does it justice, and actually think many people would by this book if it were marketed under a slightly different title. Dr. Hyman does an excellent job of making a lot of potentially technical information easy to understand. However, on the performance side of things, he does have a quirky little laugh at times (while reading the text) that really does not seem appropriate. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book! The information within this text should be required of all health care practitioners!
Lots of good information in here, but little in the way of fixes for the problems. This author is obviously trying to hype his own web site, i.e. his own sales. Would have been a lot better with more information on the best way to accomplish change. A better read is Ultrametabolism.
This book has some sound advice, that many of us know already, but a HUGE amount of the book is based on jumping conclusions without any sound evidence for doing so. He frequently takes lack of data as a reason for assuming something is bad for us, or assuming we need something. He overstates the importance of certain variables as well.Eat right, exercise, avoid toxic chemicals, sleep well, etc..all great advice but he sounds like an infomercial for a significant portion of the book (and if you're listening to it as opposed to reading it he fake laughs for every third or fourth sentence, very irritating).
"Too many epidemics in one book"
Probably not, The sensational tabloid way he delivers his knowledge and experience of medical health is disturbing.
Yes, the Author seems to know enough to bring some lightbulb moments but moments later you can be assured the words 'an epidemic sweeping the country' will follow.
I found Vinnie Tortorich's book, which is not medically driven but is health focused to be far more real. This book here is called the ultra mind solution but it's not about thinking, it's about health through environment and nutrician. Vinnie does this without scare tactics.
