Healing Anxiety and Depressionby Daniel G Amen
Synopses & Reviews
All-New Revised Edition
Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a national health crisis that continues to grow—yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Neuropsychiatrist Daniel G. Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment. Now, in this all-new, revised edition, Dr. Amen again employs the latest medical advances in the field, including the largest brain imaging study ever completed on patients with ADD, to identify, examine, and demystify the 7 distinct types of ADD and their specific treatments.
With updated recommendations for nutraceuticals and/or medications targeted to brain type, diet, exercise, lifestyle interventions, cognitive reprogramming, parenting and educational strategies, neurofeedback, and more, Dr. Amens revolutionary approach provides a treatment program that can lead sufferers of ADD to a normal, peaceful, and fully functional life.
Sufferers from ADD often say, The harder I try, the worse it gets.” Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD.

Daniel G. Amen, M.D., has pioneered the clinical use of brain SPECT imaging (one of medicine's most sophisticated functional brain-imaging studies) in psychiatry. The Amen Clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Additionally, they have determined that not only do anxiety and depression often occur together, here are seven distinct types of the disorders.
Healing Anxiety and Depression reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain; offers guidelines and diagnostic tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression; and provides a comprehensive program for treating each type. The treatment includes medication, diet, supplements, exercise, and social and therapeutic support.
Based on new brain science, Healing Anxiety and Depression is a groundbreaking, practical guide to conquering these potentially devastating disorders.
