Your Brain

“Your brain is the hardware of your soul. It is the hardware of your very essence as a human being. You cannot be who you really want to be unless your brain works right. How your brain works determines how happy you are, how effective you feel, and how well you interact with others. Your brain patterns help you (or hurt you) with your marriage, parenting skills, work, and religious beliefs, along with your experiences of pleasure and pain.”

“If you are anxious, depressed, obsessive-compulsive, prone to anger, or easily distracted, you probably believe these problems are ‘all in your head.’ In other words, you believe your problem is purely psychological. However, research that I and others have done shows that the problem is related to the physiology of the brain—and the good news is that we have proof that you can change that physiology. You can fix what’s wrong with many problems.”

“…I’ll offer targeted behavioral, cognitive, and nutritional prescriptions to optimize its function. These prescriptions are practical, simple, and effective. They are based on my experience with more than 60,000 patient visits to my clinic over the past 10 years, as well as the experiences and research of my colleagues.”

“…problems…such as moodiness, anxiety, irritability, inflexibility, and worrying are faced by large numbers of people. Most do not require professional help, but rather effective, brain-based prescriptions to optimize the brain’s effectiveness.”

“Since the brain controls our behavior, optimizing its function can help nearly anyone’s ability to be more effective in life.”
