    Doctors thought I had depression anxiety, but when I had to change doctors and the new doctor who has a background in neurology, started asking me about the medication the previous doctor had put me on and then asking me specific questions about my life, school, organization struggles, etc He told me I test positive for type 2 A.D.D and not depression Currently working off the depression meds, and starting a new course of action This explains a lot of my frustrations I had in school growing Doctors thought I had depression anxiety, but when I had to change doctors and the new doctor who has a background in neurology, started asking me about the medication the previous doctor had put me on and then asking me specific questions about my life, school, organization struggles, etc He told me I test positive for type 2 A.D.D and not depression Currently working off the depression meds, and starting a new course of action This explains a lot of my frustrations I had in school growing up I was a good student, but I had to work a lot harder and longer for my grades Dr Amen gives some good insight and techniques in his book which seem to be helping me, but I don t agree with some of his theories I also don t like the title of the book I like my brain I like the creativity, intelligence and insights it allows me to have I don t feel like I need to be healed I feel like I just need to find better skills and strategies to work with my brain It is a good brain, just a little distracted and disorganized at times

    Excellent resource for parents who either suspect that their child may have ADD or has been diagnosed with it As I read the core symptoms of ADD, I discovered that I have it myself I ve been able to function better just knowing that I have an ADD brain I m not crazy or lazy, I just have to work with the way my brain acts.

    My son s psychiatrist recommended this book He has a sub type of ADHD which regular stimulant medication was only causing bad behavioral side effects increased obsessive behavior and explosive temper tantrums This book based on research and PET scans of kids brains helped me understand why and deal with the ups and downs as we experimented with medication cocktails which would help him with his impulsiveness under stimulated parts of the brain without over stimulating the parts which were My son s psychiatrist recommended this book He has a sub type of ADHD which regular stimulant medication was only causing bad behavioral side effects increased obsessive behavior and explosive temper tantrums This book based on research and PET scans of kids brains helped me understand why and deal with the ups and downs as we experimented with medication cocktails which would help him with his impulsiveness under stimulated parts of the brain without over stimulating the parts which were causing trouble over stimulated parts of the brain.I m giving this book a hard review of less than 5 stars because there was one thing I really found myself wishing for and hope Dr Amen will add it to the next revision of this book a synopsis at the end of each chapter with a list of symptoms to help you differentiate one of the six types of ADHD from one of the other six types outlined in this book The case studies are excellent, but I was left looking at two types asking which one In the end the mere fact it s a real physiological illness and not because I m a bad parent wants to make me send Dr Amen a dozen roses for writing this excellent book If your kid has ADHD and isn t responding to Ritalin, buy this book

    Overall, I m sort of meh on the book Maybe if I had read it earlier on in our journey through learning about ADHD, I would have beenimpressed, but at this point, I wasn t learning a ton of new things It s really lengthy, but good for skimming It does have some interesting perspectives on the variations of ADD and respective nuances in approach, but at times a little heavy handed on the author doctor s proprietary brain scans and all his anecdotal references It didn t have enough scient Overall, I m sort of meh on the book Maybe if I had read it earlier on in our journey through learning about ADHD, I would have beenimpressed, but at this point, I wasn t learning a ton of new things It s really lengthy, but good for skimming It does have some interesting perspectives on the variations of ADD and respective nuances in approach, but at times a little heavy handed on the author doctor s proprietary brain scans and all his anecdotal references It didn t have enough scientific, research based facts to sway me In general, it feltlike a manual of how to be a patient at his practice rather than how to truly navigate the world of ADHD

    I am surrounded by people who I suddenly understood a lot better from the information in this book It also gave me some tools to put some of them on a path to discover the truth about themselves and how to improve their lives I noticed a lot of duplicate information in this book from one of Dr Amen s other books I read, but if you are not planning to read all of his books you ll be glad it is in there If you at all suspect someone you care about has ADD, this is a great starting point.

    Dissecting the 6 types of ADD and what can be done to deal with the disorder as it is Living apart of a family with different types of ADD is challenging, this book helps as it does not give the simplistic antidotes about ADD forgetfulness, HaHaHa This gives case studies of Dr Amen s patients and the course of action he used to bring about balance using medicine Now this is not a book for someone looking to diagnose themselves with the disorder, rather it gives a glimpse into how ADD manif Dissecting the 6 types of ADD and what can be done to deal with the disorder as it is Living apart of a family with different types of ADD is challenging, this book helps as it does not give the simplistic antidotes about ADD forgetfulness, HaHaHa This gives case studies of Dr Amen s patients and the course of action he used to bring about balance using medicine Now this is not a book for someone looking to diagnose themselves with the disorder, rather it gives a glimpse into how ADD manifests itself, what the families had done in the past what led them to the Amen clinic, and the remedies the clinic has used to assist the patient to overcome ADD.What am I doing right now.Stopped drinking coffee switched to Yerba Mate..Changed the entire family s diet to a Vegan Vegetarian Raw Food diet this is not an ideologist view of food rather food as a cure approach.working with the family doc who was recently certified in stop Autism now approach, who has augmented my severely ADD son s medication regime

    I love how at the beginning of the book he says that if you have ADD you probably won t finish reading this book Ha Well that made me determined to finish it It took me a while but I did it I liked this book and the concept of how our brains work differently The only thing that bothered me is that many times I would finish a chapter and think Gosh, I feel like everyone has ADD Hahaha I wish that I had access to an Amen Clinic to get my son and I tested I have never been diagnosed with I love how at the beginning of the book he says that if you have ADD you probably won t finish reading this book Ha Well that made me determined to finish it It took me a while but I did it I liked this book and the concept of how our brains work differently The only thing that bothered me is that many times I would finish a chapter and think Gosh, I feel like everyone has ADD Hahaha I wish that I had access to an Amen Clinic to get my son and I tested I have never been diagnosed with ADD, but have always suspected I had it Dr Amen believe it is hereditary I worry now a days that so much of just the nature of boyhood is being labeled as ADD So it would be nice to take a peek into my sons brain and even mine to see if he really truly has ADD I did like that he validated the use of medication So I think this was helpfulnow I just need help remembering everything I read Hahaha

    This is a great resource that sums up Dr Amen s work on ADD in the last decade I have seen him speak a handful of times and having recently discovered I have a version of ADD, quickly searched out Amen resources for his wise insights and fearless non traditional approaches.Amen is controversial in the psychiatry world for his use of SPECT imaging, SPECT, as I understand it, provides a geographic map of the brain and detects the levels of activity in different regions of the brain From this in This is a great resource that sums up Dr Amen s work on ADD in the last decade I have seen him speak a handful of times and having recently discovered I have a version of ADD, quickly searched out Amen resources for his wise insights and fearless non traditional approaches.Amen is controversial in the psychiatry world for his use of SPECT imaging, SPECT, as I understand it, provides a geographic map of the brain and detects the levels of activity in different regions of the brain From this information, Amen can deduce if adverse behaviors are due to brain development issues and address those areas specifically, before engaging in the typical therapy and medications There are many wonder stories Amen has of patients who came to him after finding no relief with traditional psychiatrist, he then runs a scan and treats a specific part of the brain for example an underactive frontal lobe leading to improvement, and sometimes strengthening the deficient area, a cure.The wonderful insight of this book are the seven divisions of ADD that Dr Amen has identified and distinguished, revealing the nuance in an over prescribed and often claimed as fake condition There are great explanations for the typical medical treatments, such as stimulants and anti depressants, and when they are necessary, as well as specific suggested remedies unique to each of the seven ADD categories Being that the brain is part of a system, Amen also details a proper nutrition plan as well as many other personal development items, such as journaling and getting rid of automatic negative thoughts I feel that even if someone already has an understanding of ADD, they will benefit from this book due to Amen s unique spin.To offer my own story, I came to discover I had ADD within the last several months I have always had an ardent thirst for knowledge personally and academically but have felt like a martyr through the mental flogging required satisfying this desire My own ADD type appears to be largely limbic ADD , something Amen describes as being due to an overactive limbic system which regulates emotion Due to this, limbic ADD is commonly associated with depression and negative thoughts I have experienced depression most of my life, largely in relation to feeling like a failure hello ADD and being unable to divorce myself from studies to areas I may beincline towards Anti depressants never worked for me, as it turns out I don t have typical depression and it s actually a symptom of Limbic ADD, and a mild stimulant made the world of difference A small dose of Adderall along with personal development practices has the despair receding and me feeling normal again rediscovering a side of myself I forgot about for nearly 4 years.As a point of comparison, I also purchased Dr Amen s 30 Days to ADD Healing course for 150 and I have to say I feel this book is much better The course may be great for people who need to be held accountable to something, but I found it muchfrustrating to navigate the information and felt it offered nothing new beyond providing worksheets for Amen s suggested personal development exercises In this book, everything is concise and it s cheap To the reviewers who mention this book leaves you hanging, well yes, it s just a book, you must pursue the change If the book isn t sufficient enough, then the call to action is to visit Amen s SPECT center to truly figure out with going on in your head, or join his online course With all the being said, this book is a gem and worth muchthan its price tag.Through reading Amen as a whole, I have come to develop a sort of Physicalism It appears that many people with adverse behaviors do not simply lack willpower, virtue, or a good environment, but rather the issues are linked to one s brain ADD people don t choose not to study, rather due to the less developed part of the brain in some ADD types , their regulatory systems for making prudent choices are impaired Although this is not a scientific textbook, I can imagine some of the material being supplemental to a study of neuroscience or determinism.Reviewers may be right that the book is repetitive, but don t let that stop you be an active reader and find what s important to you I probably only read 30 pages in total myself, moving between area relevant to my question and skipping Amen s anecdotes as I have heard them before.Amen s book serves as an excellent primer to anyone new to the concept or someone trying to become actively involved in their own treatment It s an easy read even if you just do section skimming, where I highly recommend it After reading his book, I realize my psychiatrist has loosely used several concepts of his, but this book has offered excellent depth that I don t think I would otherwise have come to discover and I m not sure if my psych understands the fullness of Amen s principles either In essence, this book makes ADD much less of a mystery anda hopeful prospect of overcoming Amen points out, and as an experience of ADD will know, people with ADD are no weak, but are especially strong when they are resourceful enough to get by or cope without knowledge that their struggles aren t the norm Solutions for ADD are less about fixing someone, andabout helping you reach your full potential.Thank you Dr Amen for not being afraid to be controversial in your method and helping me to better understand myself.Note Amen has a newer edition of this book which details a 7th category of ADD and has a muchaesthetically pleasing cover
