Sharpen Your Mind, Defeat Depression

I just finished reading a new book that I thought I would tell you all about. It is called The UltraMind Solution by Mark Hyman, MD. The book is about the connection of the body's health to the mind. We are seeing more and more attention and behavior problems such as ADHD and autism as well as more dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease. Are we doomed to lose our focus, concentration, and memory while at the same time becoming depressed, anxious, and tired all the time? Dr. Hyman thinks he has found a solution.

He says that the seemingly separate problems you may have with your brain (focus, memory, anxiety, etc) and even these chronic problems of ADHD and dementia are all the same problem coming from a broken brain. He says the solution is not in your brain, but rather in your body. You can fix your body by fixing the imbalances in the 7 core biological systems at the root of health and most diseases.

The UltraMind Solution is full of fascinating case studies of children with autism and adults with dementia who have seen their problems improve greatly or disappear with his treatment.

His treatment plan is based on toxins and chemicals that we put into our bodies mainly through different foods. He offers a 6 week brain-boosting program to cleanse, heal and strengthen your brain, leading to what he calls an UltraMind.

Check out The UltraMind Solution and let me know what you think!
