A prescriptive guide to restoring cognitive calm, based on Amen Clinic Chief Psychiatrist Dr. Joseph Annibali's three decades of treating patients who suffer from overloaded, over-stimulated brains.
Dr. Joseph Annibali has treated thousands of people with overloaded, over-stimulated brains. Some people describe their brain as being "in chaos"; others feel that their brain is "on fire". But whether they are ultimately diagnosed with "normal" anxiety, disabling OCD, depression, bipolar disorder, or even substance abuse, the underlying problem is a Too-Busy-Brain, a great irritant that interferes with attention, concentration, focus, mood, and often much more. It may even be a sign of undetected damage to either the brain or the body itself. But through practical strategies, understandable explanations, and prescriptive mind-management techniques, Dr. Annibali will help listeners finally reclaim their brains and get back in control of their lives.

Maybe I was expecting too much, or something different, but this book offered very little new to me. Seems like the same old story: low carbs, more greens and berries, green tea, meditation...
Basically it's a self help book mainly for people with serious and chronic digestive problems. I'm sure it's useful for those people, but I was really hoping to learn more about gut-brain interaction and this did not deliver.
Since I wasn't being helped and the slightly "salesmanish" tone of the writing was painful, I only made it about three quarters of the way before giving up.
We sell Vintage and Retro items on line. We teach children urban gardening and robotics. Traveling around the USA is our favorite hobby.
I love the examples that Dr. Annibali gives to explain reasons the brain loops scenes and thoughts over and over again. I deal with many mental patients in a clinic at my work place. It is interesting to see why and how others are acting out their symptoms.
The research subjects are insightful. It makes sense that Dr. Amen recommends this book. Both of these doctors have made great strides in the Mental Health field.
Great Narration. Nothing wrong at all.
Everyone should read this book. Audio and Kindle versions are excellent manuals.
