  •     I purchased this yesterday at my local Barnes & Noble, not Amazon, because my hopes were high and I wanted to read it as soon as I could.
  •     After the loss of a child I suffered with situational depression. I made the difficult decision to go on antidepressants for a time. This book was invaluable in helping my doctor and I discover which antidepressant would work with my brain chemistry. Not all of them are meant for everyone, and it's often hit and miss, trial and error in deciding which one to take. After most of them made me feel worse, I took the test in this book and discovered I was GABA deficient. That helped my doctor give me the right prescription. I no longer need the antidepressant, but this book also helps you discover dietary changes that can help your deficiencies. I highly recommend this book. More doctors and psychiatrists should have this in their libraries.
  •     This was the text for a recent class I took. Very interesting, and hopefully correct information. Easy to follow, understand, and implement.
  •     Dr. Braverman gives scientific answers to his readers to questions about reversing the aging process and preventing cognitive decline.
  •     Excellent read...I am learning so much about Brain Health...
  •     This is a top notch book that Is a must read for people who have depression or insomnia, mood swings, food craving, sugar cravings.
  •     This is vital information that everyone needs to know, so I recommend sharing it with your friends, because the pharmaceutical industry's text books are making sure your doctors...
  •     Not what I expected, but a good book. Thanks
  •     This, Mood Cure and Balance Your Brain, Balance Your Life, all came out around the same time. They repeated and upleveled the amino acid discussion from the mega-vitamins days of the 1980s.Arnold Fox's books DLPA, from the 1980s should also part of this group of books. DLPA > endorphins > pain relief This is the only stand-alone book on DLPA and goes into it far more than any of the above books. DLPA for arthritis and CFS, FM, etc.Braverman's book, this one, has possibly the most usable chart: the deficiency characteristics chart. This still looks like the best place to start. ALL three books are helpful once you know what your deficiency pattern is. All of them can help you grok which aminos to take as raw materials building blocks. NONE of the books have the other half of the problems here to; which is, UNwillingness to make neurotransmitters (NTs) and endorphins out of amino acids while you sleep. This topic is so new there is no book yet. Solutions depend on some grasp of the fractal nature of our psyche. Initial articles are up at Healing Toolbox org.
  •     Awsome book...a must have for your library if you are interested in health and staying healthy
  •     The book contains a good explanation of neurotransmitters and their dynamics, I would urge caution though as some of the medications advocated can significantly worsen your...
  •     Wondering why your irritable, can't sleep or have diffused body pain? Being deficient in any one of our naturally occuring Neuro transmitters and not know it.
  •     It made me want to learn everything about this topic, which is saying a lot because neurotransmitters are a mysterious and vast topic to take on.It was decently written, perhaps a few typos, no biggie.I did the assessment but was unable to apply the protocols because I couldn't make sense of them. I keep getting stumped on two points and I wonder if anybody has figured them out. (Probably some gaba-deficient-error on my part.)I understand there is a Dominant Nature. In my case, clearly acetylcholinergic. This fit perfectly with my Meyers-Briggs Personality type, as it turned out. This was one of the aspects of the book that most fascinated me: that our personalities may be a result of our neurotransmitter profile and our hormone levels, what we eat and don't eat. Our PERSONALITIES! This notion has had me deeply pondering since I read it and I love to deeply ponder.There may be a Dominant Nature Deficiency. In my case, it's Dopa that is more that 15 points below the Acetylcholine-Dominant Nature.This is where confusion sets in.The Dopa, in my case,or whichever in other cases, being more than 15 points lower than the Dominant Nature means that the Dopa is deficient or that, in my case, the Acetylcholine is deficient? When we say Dominant Nature Deficiency, to what are we actually referring? I'm lost on this.Then there is the Deficient Score, in my case, Gaba. That part is clear. Well, except that the Gaba section consisted of more questions that the other sections, so won't most people come out low in gaba because there's a higher chance of getting a higher score?! Although Gaba deficiency makes sense to me about me. But still, why more questions for this one section? That does not make sense to me.What's not clear is how to correct either Deficient Score because all the treatment protocols in the book are organized according to Dominant Nature.I recall that he gave instructions on prioritizing the treatment of one deficiency over the other to start but I never could understand how to translate the Dominant Nature protocols in the chapters to address deficiencies; whether one is to eat according to one's Dominant Nature or one's deficiencies.I could not find anywhere in the book where the protocols were given for deficiencies, only for Dominant Nature.If these points were clear to you, would you be kind enough to explain it to me.The last chapter about the machine thingy seemed to be slapped on as an afterthought, just like this sentence.Thanks thanks!I feel like a dodo :o)
  •     My neurologist suggested that I read this book to better understand my brain injury and the effects. It reads easy and explains the brain and how it works in a very simplistic fashion that will educate you on how the neurons in your brain fire and the different types of brains we have. I will never look at people and their personalities the same way again after reading this book and now understand why I am the way that I am.
