A preeminent expert in the study of the brain and behavior offers a revolutionary approach to understanding and treating anxiety and depressive disorders. Daniel G. Amen, M.D., has pioneered the clinical use of brain Spect imaging (one of medicine's most sophisticated functional brain-imaging studies) in psychiatry. The Amen Clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Additionally, they have determined that not only do anxiety and depression often occur together, there are seven distinct types of the disorders. Healing Anxiety and Depression reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain; offers guidelines and diagnostic tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression; and provides a comprehensive program for treating each type. The treatment includes medication, diet, supplements, exercise, and social and therapeutic support. Based on new brain science, Healing Anxiety and Depression is a groundbreaking, practical guide to conquering these potentially devastating disorders. Bibliography, Resources. Index.
