“Come on, people, the health of our society is going the wrong way! We can do so much better. Dr. Amen’s groundbreaking work gives us a blueprint for a better brain and a better body. I highly recommend it.”
“Daniel Amen continually demonstrates why he is truly one of the most original thinkers in medicine today. As he correctly points out in his newest book, Change Your Brain, Change Your Body, the brain is the integration center that ultimately controls not only the way we think and feel but also the way we look. More important, he provides the dietary advice that has been clinically demonstrated to improve brain function. If you want to optimize your life, this book is a must-read.”
—BARRY SEARS, Ph.D., author of The Zone
“Buy Change Your Brain, Change Your Body for yourself, the people you love, and your physi­cian. . . . This book can save your life, improve the quality of your life, and motivate you in helping those people that you love!”
—EARL R. HENSLIN, Psy.D., author of This Is Your Brain on Joy
Change Your Brain, Change Your Body is a marvelous book. . . . Highly readable and hard to put down, it is packed with insight, information, and practical tools for the care of both adults and children.”
—MICHAEL GURIAN, author of The Wonder of Girls and The Wonder of Boys
“Dr. Amen has been my source for a better brain for a long time. I have been a student and a fan, but this is new. If a ‘brain boost’ can give me a better body, I say bring it on!”
“In this entertaining and user-friendly book, Dr. Amen gives you a scientifically based, indi­vidualized plan for your own brain and body chemistry, helping you optimize every aspect of your health and well-being. No side effects—only side benefits!”
—HYLA CASS, M.D., coauthor of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health
Change Your Brain, Change Your Body is an essential book for anyone trying to improve their body and their health. By blending cutting-edge research with his wealth of clinical experience, Dr. Amen has presented this material in a way that fully integrates what we know about the connection between the brain and body. Dr. Amen’s unique perspective is a tremendous gift for so many seeking out how to achieve a better state of mind and health.”
—ANDREW NEWBERG, M.D., noted brain imaging researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and coauthor of How God Changes Your Brain

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." -- Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV)

Many of us can imagine that our bodies aren't much affected by our brains, and the reverse. Dr. Amen explains bodily processes that link the brain to the body and demonstrates with SPECT (single proton emission computerized tomography) images and individual case histories how replacing unhealthy with healthier influences on the brain also create improved body health. Here's an example: If enough blood doesn't get to the brain, you can't think as well as you otherwise might because you lack oxygen and nourishment. That same problem can mean you have circulatory problems that will undermine your health. Improve blood flow to the brain and a lot of valuable body processes will operate better that will improve your circulation and so on.

The book mostly focuses on weight control, appearance, health, stress reduction, sleep disorders, and depression.

Dr. Amen goes on to describe how his clinics operate and to characterize patterns of symptoms that can be related to malnourishment or bad habits. The book also offers a self-diagnostic test (and a longer online version) that can suggest whether you have opportunities to improve. In my case, I thought the diagnosis was pretty accurate . . . but I already knew what to do before reading the book. My problem is that I need to change my habits. While I feel more motivated to change after reading this book, only time will tell if I will make the simple changes that are recommended. How the book helped was giving me medical reasons why shifting would help.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good info with unimportant info 21. März 2010
Von leafreader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The book is not bad. There are very interesting information on brain types.

The big problem with the book is frankly a lack of focus. You may very well come away with an OMG-now-what feeling. That's because the author attempt to cover many possibilities that contribute to the same problem. Let's say you suffer from anxiety, by the end of the book, you will have been given 50 different things that could have contributed to you experiencing anxiety - and when you try to summarize all those "solutions" it tends to lead you to basic good commons sense: eat well, exercise, don't stress. Great! Now I know how to live.

That is not to say that book doesn't give good advice or that it doesn't have added information. But for 80% of the book, you would have already known the common sense information if you paid any remote attention to the usual batch of health and fitness related articles and magazines.

The big draw for me to purchase this book is to learn about the different types of brains that Dr. Amen has identified. And how each can be best managed via supplements? I focused in on supplements because I already have fairly good regime when it comes to food and exercise. He does provide the info I seek, but I had to shuffle through different parts of the book to piece the information together. The author did not make that easy. At the end of it, I came up with a one-page of summary from all those scattered writings. I'm OK with it but it is clearly not the best. It also indicate the value of your money, assuming you had some common sense about diets already.

The point is, if you don't know a lot of basic information to begin with regarding good eating and brain habits, then this book will be very valuable. If you know the basics already, you will find information that you've not seen before but it takes some work to extract out the info and it puts to question the real value you are getting.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Just an infomercial! 6. April 2010
Von Raskolnikov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If you are looking for something new or scientific, skip this one. The book is short on actual science, uses simplistic anecdotes, but more importantly is nothing more than a written infomercial for Dr. Amens to try to sell you his vitamins and supplements. Once you identify the "type" of overeater you are, the book recommends supplements to help you "change your brain" all of which are available on the Amens web site for outrageous prices. The book is one long, giant infomercial. You can get all of the same informaiton for free on the website, and get instantaneous "personalized" results from the "test" there, along with recommendations of which overpriced supplements you should buy from the web site. Nothing new in this book, so save your money. Just go get the pitch from the free web site, and decide whether to fork out hundreds of dollars for supplements there. You won't need this book to make that decision. Just Google "Amen clinics".

3.0 von 5 Sternen Specious SPECT 14. Mai 2010
Von D. P. Birkett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Dr Amen is a board certified psychiatrist and is well-informed. He knows what he is talking about. He has read the journals and mastered the textbooks. He has published work in peer-reviewed journals cited in PubMed. The treatments he suggests in this book are only mildly unorthodox and some of them, such as hypnosis, meditation, relaxation and eye movement desensitization have been shown to be effective and are overly neglected by mainstream medicine. Some of them, such as samE, St John's wort, glycine and omega-3 fatty acids are on the cusp of scientific respectability. "Dr.Amen's Brain and Memory Recovery Solution" and "Dr. Amen's Craving Solution" are perhaps less likely to receive FDA approval, but maybe his application is pending.
His diet suggestions are for complex carbohydrates and frequent meals. He is against the Atkins diet. He recommends exercise but avoidance of cycling and skate boarding (because you might bang your head).
I think his appeal is not so much because of the treatments he offers but because of the explanations he offers. It can be frustrating for sufferers from severe anxiety or depression to learn that all their blood chemistry and X-rays are perfectly normal. Amen gives the public an organic reason for why they feel mentally bad. Not all of his reasons are totally spurious. Variations in cortisol really can affect feelings of well being. Epinephrine really can produce feelings of anxiety. Thyroid abnormalities really can cause mental symptoms.
There is more of a problem with his use of SPECT, which involves injecting a radioactive substance. The SPECT scan has a scientific basis and some valid medical uses. The two major imaging methods for looking at the brain in clinical use are the CAT scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. These can show tumors, or bleeding, or parts of the brain that have become softened or liquefied.
Positron emitting tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (f MRI), regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), and the kind of rCBF called single photon emitting computerized tomography (SPECT) can show up localizations of disordered brain function that were not apparent from CAT or MRI. For example, decreased metabolism has been found in frontal areas with schizophrenia, and in parietal brain areas with dementia. Dr. Abel claims to be able to use SPECT scan to diagnose a variety of emotional conditions. However the Brain Imaging Council of the Society of Nuclear Medicine has offered Dr. Amen an opportunity to test some of his claims and he has refused, according to a report in the American Journal of Psychiatry (May, 2010, volume 167, page 598).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing Book! 19. Februar 2010
Von Christine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dr. Amen's new book, "Change Your Brain Change Your Body", is a great book to have as a reference on hand to anyone who has struggled to lose weight in the past. It presents scientific reasoning behind why individuals have such a difficult time when trying the latest and most popular diets but it is written so that you do not have to be a medical doctor to understand it! Once you read this book, you will be able to understand how your particular brain functioning will help you to lose the weight and gain a more healthy lifestyle.

As a Neuropsychologist, I have found it very valuable to help many of my patients deal not only with weight issues, but also hormonal imbalances, anxiety and depression. Understanding your brain type and how is can affect so many different aspects of your life is critical to the first steps in recovery. The chapters on the skin, hormone and skin solution are fabulous! A lot of my patients suffer with sleep issues, are stressed out and think in a very negative way. This book is fabulous in that it explains why these issues are key factors not only in the way you feel emotionally and cognitively but why they affect your weight as well!

I would definitely recommend that every therapist have this book in their bookcase and every patient have one at home!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Do not recommend this book 17. März 2010
Von An Unfashionable Woman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
(See my other review under CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR LIFE). I wanted to believe in Dr. Amen. He was smart, he was funny, and everything he said seemed to make sense. Moreover, his lecture was being broadcast on PBS, so he had to be legitimate, right? I was disillusioned when I went to his website and took a "free" online test that diagnosed me with every mental problem but bipolar syndrome, and proceeded to recommend products that would have cost me more than $200 a month, all this without knowing anything more about me than what I put on the questionnaire. Some of the information was contradictory, because it said that I should not take products with fish oil or gingko, but many of the recommended products included one or the other.

I'm no medical expert, but I cannot find any information other than that given by Dr. Amen or his supporters that SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) is a legitimate diagnostic tool the way he claims it is. Even Wikipedia says the evidence is "anecdotal" and an article on SALON points out the problems in more learned language. As far as the "prescriptions", they all come with a disclaimer that they are not FDA approved.

I have also written to PBS asking them to vet their programming more carefully. I recommend getting this book out of the library and talking with your physician before rushing to try any of his products.
