About the Book

A revised edition of the New York Times bestseller that will help you conquer ADD.

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a national health crisis that continues to grow—yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Neuropsychiatrist Daniel G. Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment. Now, in this all-new, revised edition, Dr. Amen again employs the latest medical advances in the field, including the largest brain imaging study ever completed on patients with ADD, to identify, examine, and demystify the 7 distinct types of ADD and their specific treatments.

With updated recommendations for nutraceuticals and/or medications targeted to brain type, diet, exercise, lifestyle interventions, cognitive reprogramming, parenting and educational strategies, neurofeedback, and more, Dr. Amen’s revolutionary approach provides a treatment program that can lead sufferers of ADD to a normal, peaceful, and fully functional life.

Sufferers from ADD often say, “The harder I try, the worse it gets.” Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD.

About the Reviews

A fascinating eye opener. Every parent who thinks their child may be ADD should read it.

Very helpful is the fact that the author summarizes a lot of important info, such as the 7 different types of ADD, right in the beginning,

so you can scan through the beginning and see right away if it pertains to you. Well organized book.

Also VERY helpful as far as tips it gives you to naturally and safely help with ADD symptoms.

(The author prefers to use these methods first, only resorting to drugs when absolutely necessary.)

I love how he educates the reader on how the brain functions, and exactly how

your diet affects the brain. I feel like things like this should be required reading in high school/ college. Ignorance does

not lead to bliss; it leads to dysfunction in many cases. I loved this book.

*********************************

I have a daughter with ADHD. Before reading this book, I had a lot of skepticism with the condition and method of treatment. I'll be honest, I felt as if it was a joke to make the pharma companies money.

After seeing the brain scans and have Dr Amen explain the different types, I suddenly felt like I understood a lot more about her condition and was more comfortable with the diagnosis. My wife and I plan on either finding an Amen clinic or a similar one to have our daughter tested. I would love to get her off medication - but based on the diagnosis, I'd be ok with the prescription as long as it fit her needs.

I wish I would have read this book a few years ago. If you have someone in your life with it (or might have it), read the book.

*********************************

BUY this! Seriously! This book was a game changer for my family. No two brains are alike and this book goes in depth and explains the 7 distinct types of ADHD (which I never even knew existed until now). We have struggled for years with my son's behavior as a result of ADHD and have tried numerous medications, countless therapist and diets all with no success. As a parent, it's absolutely devastating seeing your child struggle through life and you can feel almost hopeless when nothing seems to work. After reading this, I believe our son has the "ring of fire" adhd. We have since changed up medications and he seems to be doing much better. We are scheduled to get the SPECT scan on his brain next month. Wish us luck!
