Change Your Brain, Change Your Body: Use Your Brain to Get and Keep the Body You Have Always Wanted Reviews
I liked this better when I read the library book. After owning it it seems like one more fanatic pushing an agenda of supplements and psychobabble. I am not convinced all the supplements recommended are safe or beneficial and they can be very expensive. I kept wondering if he did not have ownership in the companies whose products he was promoting.
My wife and I watched his pbs special and quickly wanted to follow it up with a joint reading of his book. We expected to get more detailed information about what to eat early on with some recipes thrown in to give us a real world idea. The information provided is interesting, and as some reviews mention it does kinda repeat. But when it comes down to actually putting this into practice, i hoped for some more help from the book. At the end of the nutriotion section there is a link for a shopping list and recipes ,"perfect", i thought, just what i hoped for. But no, the link is dead. I googled it and found nothing. In his appendix he says to visit the "CHange your brain, change your body" site for more info but its only a video and a tour calendar. THERE IS ZERO HELP WITHOUT PAYING FOR MORE. i've looked for pdfs on his site, checked his blog, looked at a site map, nothing, nada, zip, zilch. This ultimately feels like a giant informercial giving you just enough to get started but not enough to succeed.
This is a book I have recommended to several people. Why? Well, I can't really break it all down here, but basically if you want an easy to understand readable book that offers a quiz to help you figure out which behaviors you see in yourself or another - this is it - and it then points you to what you can do via supplements and diet to modify and change your behavior by literally changing you brain's behavior. See? That sounds way, way more complicated than this book really is, so all I can tell you is read it.
This book is totally about making our brains better and it clearly reads like it is on the mark to help us all be better physically and in our job performance. Nutrition is everything! Everything Dr. Amen says appears to be supported by recent science. Before reading this book I had heard about concussions, but I had no idea how a whack in the head 40 or 50 years ago, which at that time was just taken in stride la-ti-dah, could have caused someone to later be so screwed up- whether by temper tantrums, lack of focus, addiction, or depression. So many people have ended up with better lives because of this book- they identified their personal deficiencies and then changed their eating and other behavior by following his vitamin and nutrition plans which are set out to deal with specific behaviors. As a result of my reading this, I am following this program gung ho and , now that they have opened clincs in Atlanta and NYC, I will definitely try to get there to have a pet scan of my brain and be analyzed. ( I have whacked it more than a few times- Once at the end of a softball practice I even got hit with a bat at full speed!) Previously thelocations of the clincis were major hauls,( California and DC) These new locations will make it easier. I wish they would open one in New England. Maybe at Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, where gambling addictions are ramapant, or, BETTER YET, at UMass Lowell at the new Health Sciences training facilities it is presently constructing. You have nothing to lose by buying this book, and every thing to gain.
Awwww, Dr. Amen is AWESOME!! He has dedicated his life's work to help us take care of our Brains!! If you break your leg they are going to x-ray it. They do CAT scans and MRIs and look at everything that may be wrong with us. And now Dr. Daniel Amen does brain scans (he has been doing this for some time now) and do they tell a story or what??!!! It's kind of like when they showed people a black lung from smoking. Everything we do and especially everything we EAT affects our BRAIN. If you care about maintaining your brain and taking care of your body you will buy this book and anything else this great doctor is trying to teach us.
This book really opened my mind up to changing some habits of my own to help better grow and support my brain. It is full of great knowledge that really helped me better understand why we do the things we do and how it affects our mind for our overall health.
I saw Dr. Amen on a PBS fundraiser and thought what he was saying made a lot of sense, so I purchased this book. There is a lot of info on how the brain works and why, with solid scientific work to back all Dr. Amen's thoughts and theories up. The book is pretty good with listing supplements to help many aliments, but really hammers home the need for exercise and good sleep as keys to better overall health. This is a good read for people with different types of anxiety disorders as it explains things clearly for those who are not or have not looked into possible reasons for varying predicaments. I recommend this book so you can realize a true life changing decision that does not seem like no fun and all work. I definitely see mind and body health in a clearer and more positive way now. Thanks Dr. Amen !
