Publisher's Summary

As America enters the aging age, The Ultra Mind Solution speaks directly to the massive generation of boomers who, for the first time, are encountering diminishing memory and focus, among other affects of life on earth and the human brain.

Like all of Dr. Hyman's work, this latest installment in the Ultra series teaches listeners how to use the body as well as how to heal the body, this time making lifestyle changes that will foster brain function, including memory, mood, and attention span as well as battle everything from brain fatigue to depression.

Like all of Dr. Hyman's titles, The Ultra Mind Solution includes the Seven Keys to Brain Health and a simples six week program that will cleanse, heal and strengthen the brain. Each section has a quiz for the listener to access the affect of each particular key on their brain function, provides a list of diagnostic tests for clinical treatments as well as a how to implement healing solutions from changes in nutrition to supplements, hormones, detoxification, and fighting brain "allergies."

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Corny Title - Great Book!

I'm not usually into Naturopathic ideas, but I really enjoyed this book. The author does a great job explaining how what we put in our bodies affects us. I bought the book after listening to the free sample. I was impressed and the book did not disappoint.

Very Helpful!

This book will enrich you with some interesting information about the nature of depression and other mental diseases and how some simple life changes can make a difference in your mood. If you want to learn some biology and how the human mind works, this book will also give you some technical explanations that might help you know yourself better. The author did an excellent job in this audiobook - you will listen to it as you are in one of his lectures. There are some "truths" here that you won't see published by the food or pharmaceutical industries... You will be surprised by some of the stories that the author brings in this book. I am now doing the author's "Six Weeks Program" and I am very satisfied with the results.

The UltraMind Solution

This book is a must read. It provides a natural way to move toward good health. The insight it gives helps to bring clarity to past experiences. It should be a requirement for doctors and the infomation made widespread for all. Earlier knowledge could have made a positive difference in so many lives. Read now, live longer and healthier.

Possibly dated, but still relevant

What did you love best about The UltraMind Solution?

Everything. The diet tips, lifestyle hacks, and breakdown of the epidemic of broken brains.

What did you like best about this story?

The ADHD / autism controversy always piques my interest, so I'll go with that.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"The secret life of sardines"

Any additional comments?

This book offers an actual course of action for dealing with anxiety, depression and otherwise. Although the caffeine and nicotine elimination seems like a massive undertaking, I appreciated the advice he provided for coping with the aftermath.

Although this book is complex and covers a heap of territory, it's outshined by his newer books The Blood Sugar Solution and Eat Fat, Get Thin. His diet tips have evolved along with others', and some of the information in The Ultramind Solution could be considered outdated.

Great "How To" and "Here's Why" to improve wellnes

Would you consider the audio edition of The UltraMind Solution to be better than the print version?

Did not have print version, but the audio edition was EXCELLENT: clear voice, engaging inflections, understandable presentation of complex ideas!

What other book might you compare The UltraMind Solution to and why?

"The Blue Zones" by Dan Buettner gets at the same ideas from a social/cultural perspective. The UltraMind gets to point of how the human biological system works.

What about Mark Hyman’s performance did you like?

Clear voice and instructions to do "self-report" examinations that give you insight into your own unique physiology.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The UltraSuccess Solution: how to be the best that we can be.

Do not let the title fool you.

If you are interested in the concept of food as preventative medicine, then this book is well worth your time. I am not sure the book's title really does it justice, and actually think many people would by this book if it were marketed under a slightly different title. Dr. Hyman does an excellent job of making a lot of potentially technical information easy to understand. However, on the performance side of things, he does have a quirky little laugh at times (while reading the text) that really does not seem appropriate. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book! The information within this text should be required of all health care practitioners!

A Sales pitch

Lots of good information in here, but little in the way of fixes for the problems. This author is obviously trying to hype his own web site, i.e. his own sales. Would have been a lot better with more information on the best way to accomplish change. A better read is Ultrametabolism.

Too many epidemics in one book

Would you try another book written by Mark Hyman or narrated by Mark Hyman?

Probably not, The sensational tabloid way he delivers his knowledge and experience of medical health is disturbing.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, the Author seems to know enough to bring some lightbulb moments but moments later you can be assured the words 'an epidemic sweeping the country' will follow.

Any additional comments?

I found Vinnie Tortorich's book, which is not medically driven but is health focused to be far more real. This book here is called the ultra mind solution but it's not about thinking, it's about health through environment and nutrician. Vinnie does this without scare tactics.

future health please!!!

I am excited to be hearing this from a highly trained doctor who genuinely has gone the extra mile to improve and be up to date with current science and nutrition along with an extensive understanding of an holistic approach. The information is in abundance and cannot be ignored this I hope for many of us and many more to come will be the basis as to which we aspire our future health and well being to be anchored in. many thanks for this Mark love and chi Adam
