A breakthrough program for conquering anxiety, depression, obsessiveness, anger and impulsiveness
Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
If you’ve been struggling unsuccessfully to overcome a problem, this book is for you! Your inability to change probably isn’t for lack of trying, thinking, or motivation. You’ve most likely never had the right answers or the right tools . . .
Research shows that these problems are related to the physiology of the brain. And the good news is there’s compelling proof that you can fix what’s wrong for many problems!
This book can teach all about the brain systems and what mental disorder correlate with each different part of your brain, for a more individualized treatment plan. Follow Dr. Amen as he takes you through each case study and shows you how each disorder can affect each person differently.
Do you feel like you suffer from any of these symptoms?
- Plagued by anxiety? The problem may lie in your basal ganglia...
- Trouble focusing? It could be that your prefrontal cortex needs attention...
- Difficulty connecting with others? Perhaps it’s a deep limbic problem...
- Temper out of control? You temporal lobes may be to blame...
At last, here are the answers you’ve been looking for. You can optimize your brain to achieve your fullest potential today. If you’ve been thinking your problems are “all in your head” . . . and purely psychological, this book will be a breath of fresh air!

Change your brain change your life
Change your brain change your life
I learned that even minor bumps to the head can change people's personalities and ability to learn. Dr. Amen shows pictures of brains with little or no activity in areas that have been injured, mirroring the patients' emotional or intellectual difficulties.
Amen is very clear that he always uses talk therapy and teaching communication skills before he contemplates having a SPECT series done. His point is that many people can benefit from learning new skills and ways of looking at life, but some are truly stuck because their brain activity keeps them looping on negative thoughts, reacting with extreme anger, obsessing about limited situations, or shutting down when they try to concentrate. When medication is used these patients can finally put the communication and coping skills they have learned to good use.
This book helped me understand people in my life who have seemed hopeless, shallow and even vicious. It showed me that there is hope for everyone who is willing to open their mind, get proper treatment, and challenge how they have viewed the world up until now. The exercises he gives the reader are very specific and helpful. If another reviewer thinks that there is nothing concrete in the book, then they aren't willing to look at their diet, their habitual way of thinking, and herbal and medical treatments. The prescriptions are plentiful and very specific.
It is an easy read, very accessible, with fascinating stories that pull you in. It is not academic or inaccessible. Quite the opposite. It's a great book for anyone who wants to know more about themselves and how their body works.
The encouragement I needed
In 2007, I received a TBI while riding in a rented bus vehicle. Of the 23 people on board, two were ejected through shattered windows and died on the expressway. Of those still on board, I was the most seriously injured. I was told later that my coma scale rating was only 4 and no one even the neurosurgeon was hopeful for me. The Lord did everything, of course, and I survived after a 3 month plus coma while being treated at Grady Hospital. (Skipping ahead) After 3 different hospital stays, about a year and a half, I transferred to brain rehab land carrying a copy of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. I had great therapy, but my hope and encouragement came from the mind of dear Dr. Amen. I am so very grateful for Dr. Amen and his hopeful written words. I won't go on. Just know that I am a lifelong fan and a treatment wanna-be. My best to you and your team, Jackie Benson
