Publisher's Summary

New hope for those suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, addictions, PTSD, ADHD, and more. 

Though incidence of these conditions is skyrocketing, for the past four decades standard treatment hasn’t much changed, and success rates in treating them have barely improved, either. Meanwhile, the stigma of the “mental illness” label - damaging and devastating on its own - can often prevent sufferers from getting the help they need. 

Brain specialist and best-selling author Dr. Daniel Amen is on the forefront of a new movement within medicine and related disciplines that aims to change all that. In The End of Mental Illness, Dr. Amen draws on the latest findings of neuroscience to challenge an outdated psychiatric paradigm and help listeners take control and improve the health of their own brain, minimizing or reversing conditions that may be preventing them from living a full and emotionally healthy life. 

The End of Mental Illness will help you discover:

  • Why labeling someone as having a “mental illness” is not only inaccurate but harmful
  • Why standard treatment may not have helped you or a loved one - and why diagnosing and treating you based on your symptoms alone so often misses the true cause of those symptoms and results in poor outcomes
  • At least 100 simple things you can do yourself to heal your brain and prevent or reverse the problems that are making you feel sad, mad, or bad
  • How to identify your “brain type” and what you can do to optimize your particular type
  • Where to find the kind of health provider who understands and uses the new paradigm of brain health

Dont drink, do drugs or work in a toxic environmen

There is very little science in this book, and a whole heap of pseudo science (Aluminium pans cause Alzheimers etc). The book basically says that if you drink too much do heaps of drugs or work with toxic chemicals without using a mask you can get psychiatric problems. The solution is to stop these activities. There is a scan that can show that your brain is not functioning well, but it doesn't tell you why or how to treat the problem. If you stop doing the things mentioned and do another scan, the scan shows that your brain works better.

A promotional book

It’s lacking in real content. Mostly stories about people getting better. Missing on the how.

Excellent

I would recommend buying the book to reference while reading. There are a lot of facts, lists, ingredients and symptoms listed which are difficult to take in only on audio.
