If you want a better looking and better functioning body you will be better off spending more time working on improving your brain than you do your body. In his book, Change Your Brain, Change Your Body by Daniel Amen, MD discusses the missing link to a great body and that is a great brain – the brain-body solution.
Dr. Amen is a pyschiatrist and expert in brain imaging science. His practice contains the largest database in the world on functional brain scans. Over the years Dr. Amen has become an expert in applying that knowledge from functional brain imaging to everyday clinical practice. As he discusses in Change Your Brain, Change Your Body nearly everything we do conciously or unconciously begins with our brains – thus great health starts with great brain health – the most wonderful organ of the body and universe.
By studying SPECT scans of the brain which reveal how well the brain is functioning, Dr. Amen and is associates over the years have been able to develop specific programs to treat anxiety and depression. In the process they noticed that patients frequently lost weight and improve their health in a number of other ways that he shares in Change Your Brain, Change Your Brain.
Dr. Amen points out that a one size fits all program for any health problem does not work for all – that there is a need to individualize programs. Knowing how a patient’s brain is functioning allows for customizing a program for the individual.
