Feel Better Fast and Make It Last: Unlock Your Brain's Healing Potential to Overcome Negativity, Anxiety, Anger, Stress, and Trauma by Daniel G. Amen

Feel Better Fast and Make It Last: Unlock Your Brain's Healing Potential to Overcome Negativity, Anxiety, Anger, Stress, and Trauma


We've all felt anxious, sad, traumatized, grief-stricken, stressed, angry, or hopeless at some point in life. It's perfectly normal to go through emotional crises or have periods when you feel panicked or out of sorts. It is how you respond to these challenges that will make all the difference in how you feel--not just immediately, but also in the long run. Unfortunately, many people turn to self-medicating behaviors, such as overeating, drugs, alcohol, risky sexual behavior, anger, or wasting time on mindless TV, video games, Internet surfing, or shopping. And even though these behaviors may give temporary relief from feeling bad, they usually only prolong and exacerbate the problems--or cause other, more serious ones.

Is it possible to feel better--and make it last?

Renowned physician, psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, and founder of Amen Clinics Dr. Daniel Amen understands how critical it is for you to know what will help you feel better fast, now and later. In Feel Better Fast and Make It Last, you'll discover new, powerful brain-based strategies to quickly gain control over anxiety, worry, sadness, stress and anger, strengthening your resilience and giving you joy and purpose for a lifetime.

My Thoughts:

Feel Better Fast and Make It Last by M.D., Daniel G. Amen is a stunning work to the neuroscience industry. This book is is a great tool on the brain for any individual. Whether you have a medical degree or are you looking to understand more about the brain, this book is user friendly for anyone. One of the biggest takeaways I got from this book is that we all need to understand our brain and support it. Regardless of our age, not all brains, even healthy are the same. Which is something Daniel had found in his SPECT scans. Each person requires a different type of unique treatment and there isn't a one size fits all method, which is something commonly mis-understood in our culture today. I love learning about how to naturally support your brain with herbs, vitamins, etc. Finally, a doctor telling people how to support their brain with natural supplements, which is awesome!

He explains so many things in the book that I have never understood with the brain, but he spends a lot of time in diet as well. He says that many people often are afraid of fat in our culture, so they do fat free, but did you know that has a higher percent of people facing cognitive impairments and dementia!! Why??? Because they pump everything with Sugar!! Fat isn't the problem, sugar is! Did you also know that corn is sprayed every year with glyphosate pesticide Roundup, which has been associated with cancer, depression and so many other diseases! 

I could go on and on about the things I've learned and have highlighted in this book, but overall this book is amazing! If you love to learn, grab a copy today! I have really enjoyed this book.
