CHANGE YOUR BRAIN,
CHANGE YOUR BODY
Use Your Brain to Get and Keep the Body You Have Always Wanted
By Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
Dr. Daniel G. Amen is a nationally recognized expert on the brain. A clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and brain imaging expert, he heads the world-renowned Amen Clinics, which maintains the world’s largest database of brain images related to behavior, now greater than 55,000 scans. The New York Times bestselling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life and Magnificent Mind at Any Age, Dr. Amen returns with a new book detailing his latest pioneering studies that connect brain health to the physical body—CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY: Use Your Brain to Get and Keep the Body You Have Always Wanted (Harmony Books; February 16, 2010).
CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY is Dr. Amen’s breakthrough approach to harnessing the brain’s power to improve the body’s overall appearance and function. As his studies show, a healthy brain is the key to a better body and a better self. The command and control center, what happens in our brain is directly related to how our bodies look and act. Tell Dr. Amen you want to lose the love handles, he’ll tell you to get better frontal lobes. You want to say good-bye to all those headaches? You have to calm your brain. Turn back the clock and get rid of those wrinkles? You have to start by rejuvenating your brain.
When our brains aren’t functioning properly, that dysfunction manifests itself in our physical bodies. Because we can’t see our brains, however, we don’t do anything to fix the problem at its source, leading us to adopt quick fixes and temporary solutions that ultimately fail. In CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY, however, Dr. Amen takes us inside the brain to show us the ways in which we can harness its power to create the body we’ve always wanted. Whether you want to tighten your tummy, have younger-looking skin, boost your energy level, stop getting so many colds, or lower your blood pressure without having to take medicine, Dr. Amen’s fifteen easy-to-follow solutions will have you well on your way to success. Sample chapters include:
• The Craving Solution: Use Your Brain to Increase Your Willpower and Calm the Urges That Prevent You From Achieving Your Goals
• The Nutrition Solution: Feed Your Brain to Look and Feel Younger
• The Heart Solution: Use Your Brain to Strengthen and Soothe Your Heart
• The Focus and Energy Solution: Boost Your Energy to Stay on Track Toward Your Goals
• The Stress Solution: Relax Your Brain to Reduce Your Wrinkles and Improve Your Immune System
One size does not fit all, however, and CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, CHANGE YOUR BODY helps each individual reader navigate their brain to identify areas in need of improvement. Dr. Amen provides a customized, tailored approach to making positive changes, through treatments such as vitamin therapy, relaxation exercises, and physical activities, that will improve the way we look and feel. The brain controls everything we do: how we think, how we feel, how we act, and how we look. In order to realize our goals in any area of life, our brain must work right, and Dr. Amen shows us how to improve our brain’s health so that change can transcend into every facet of our lives.
