Reclaim your brain : how to calm your thoughts, heal your mind, and bring your life back under control

Summary: Is your brain on fire? A buzzing beehive of random thoughts? In chaos and out of control? Do you need to reclaim your brain? As chief psychiatrist at one of Daniel Amen's world-renowned clinics, Joseph A. Annibali, M.D., has encountered thousands of patients complaining of a brain that is "too busy" or feels like it's "on fire." A too-busy brain can interfere with attention, concentration, mood, and even the ability to make decisions and solve problems. Although today we are likely to hear that a busy brain results from our 24/7 device-driven culture, Dr. Annibali shows us that the causes are far more compelling. Bringing more than 30 years of experience to bear, Dr. Annibali now offers us this guide to restoring cognitive calm. Known as "the brain whisperer," Dr. Annibali provides practical strategies, understandable explanations, and prescriptive mind-management techniques to help regulate brain function. He introduces us to the many contributors to the busy brain, some as seemingly harmless as negativity, others as serious as physical brain trauma, and still other conditions, including (but not limited to) normal everyday stress, ADD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, autism, Lyme disease, and substance abuse. Throughout, he includes patient stories, novel approaches, effective exercises, and useful suggestions to help you understand your own brain function and find the best way to come and balance your brain--because no one solution is right for everyone.--Adapted from book jacket.
