BRAIN PRESCRIPTIONS THAT REALLY WORK

In this breakthrough bestseller, you'll see scientific evidence that your anxiety, depression, anger, obsessiveness, or impulsiveness could be related to how specific structures in your brain work. You're not stuck with the brain you're born with. Here are just a few of neuropsychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen's surprising — and effective — "brain prescriptions" that can help heal your brain and change your life:

To Quell Anxiety and Panic:

  • Use simple breathing techniques to immediately calm inner turmoil

To Fight Depression:

  • Learn how to kill ANTs (automatic negative thoughts)

To Curb Anger:

  • Follow the Amen anti-anger diet and learn the nutrients that calm rage

To Conquer Impulsiveness and Learn to Focus:

  • Develop total focus with the "One-Page Miracle"

To Stop Obsessive Worrying:

  • Follow the "get unstuck" writing exercise and learn other problem-solving exercises

Review:

"Opens the door to assessment and interventions that can change your life." Robert D. Hunt, M.D., associate clinical professor of psychiatry, Vanderbilt School of Medicine

Review:

"Revolutionary. Dr. Amen shows how your brain can become your worst enemy, and how with the proper treatment, your best friend." Martin Stein, M.D., associate clinical professor of psychiatry, George Washington University

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 315-319) and index.

This is a wonderful book. After watching Dr. Amen on PBS television, I decided to get a copy. The book is a must read for any one who wants to have mental wholeness in this our crazy world. I highly recommend it to students, intellectuals and the general public.
