Product description

Product Description

A hidden epidemic races around the globe -- we can't see it or touch it, which makes it so dangerous.

The invisible epidemic has led to the suffering of millions who spend billions on drugs, only to find they don't work.

This is an epidemic of broken brains.


"Broken brains" go by many names -- depression, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, attention deficit disorder, autism, and dementia, to name a few -- and show up in radically different ways from person to person, making each seem like a separate problem.

But the truth is that these "diagnoses" are all the result of a few basic problems with our biology. Pinpoint these biological problems, fix them, and let your body's natural healing intelligence take over to repair your brain. Now you can experience an UltraMind -- one that is highly focused and able to pay attention at will, with a strong, reliable memory and a mood that is calm, confident, in control, and in good spirits.

We have all heard of the mind-body connection or how our thoughts affect the health of our body. But the reverse is far more powerful: what you do to your body, your basic biology, has a profound effect on your brain.

Have you ever experienced instant clarity after exercise? Alertness after drinking coffee? A mental crash after popping candy? Does your brain inexplicably slow down during stress, while multitasking, or when meeting a deadline? Each is an example of how what we do to our bodies -- whether through nutrition, sleep, exercise, or stress -- has a dramatic effect on our brains.

Conventional treatments don't help, or provide only slight benefit, because they just manage symptoms rather than deal with -- and heal -- the underlying problem. And just as brain problems all stem from the same root causes, they all have the same solution -- The UltraMind Solution.

Our ancient genes interact with our environment to create systemic imbalances that affect our brains. Correct those imbalances -- most caused by nutritional deficiencies, allergens, infections, toxins, and stress -- and you can achieve optimum mental health without drugs or psychotherapy.

The UltraMind Solution is the future of medicine, the culmination of the last twenty years of research on what makes the brain happy, focused, and calm; research that has uncovered a few simple factors that explain why things go wrong and how to fix them.

Don't wait for this revolution in medicine to trickle into your doctor's office: it usually takes research twenty years to move from the lab to the patient. The answers are here, right now, in The UltraMind Solution.

For someone who is actively seeking help to deal with their depression I think I was hoping for more from this book. To be honest I probably would have liked this book a whole lot more hadn't I just finished reading Dr Perlmutter's Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain - for Life. If you are looking for more scientific facts and studies in to the connection between depression and diet then I would recommend that book over this. But in saying that I did enjoy the message that diet and detoxifying can help in healing the brain, it wasn't new information to me but it is an important message and more needs to be said about this. Depression is a horrible illness and for many people I think that the principles brought up in the book would be encouraging but definitely not a cure all for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been having a pretty horrible time the last 5 years which are supposed ... 11 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I have Narcolepsy, cataplexy, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, and a multitude of other health problems. I have been having a pretty horrible time the last 5 years which are supposed to have been my prime but instead I've been living like a disabled elderly person. For the last 2 years I've been doing everything I can to regain my health and this is one of many books I've purchased to try to gain more knowledge. I just started it and I'm so glad I did! I started by skimming through. Then I took the quizzes right away. And finally, I began reading from the very first page. Now I'm into the 2nd or 3rd chapter and I absolutely love it. From the first day I started I've been hooked and excited to renew and reinforce my efforts at eating clean and practicing mindful living. It is hard to do day in and day out and not see results so I often have lapses and get discouraged but the book makes it easy for you to get motivated, stick to it, and do what's most effective for your individual needs. I have read a lot of health and self help books. This is one of the best I've seen. It is easy to read, great visual layout, divided into small chunks, very factual and informative and based on real research. I was blown away when I browsed through the sources cited section and noticed that chapter 6 has 60 + sources!!! Just in the one chapter alone. It is obvious that the information provided has been thoroughly and carefully researched and broken down in colloquial language that the average person can understand and relate to. The best way I can describe it is comfortable and satisfying which is rarely an experience I have when reading non-fiction. It is hopeful, honest, concise and direct. I'm excited to make more headway and complete the program and recommendations. Also, another few features I loved were the resources section in the back where the name and contact information of different sources of therapy, treatment, or healing are listed including amalgam removal! Also, there is an online community where you receive access to a multitude of resources and benefits to help you on your journey. I definitely plan on checking that out. As far as I know, there is no cost to join so that's really excellent. It seems like dr. Hyman genuinely cares about helping his patients and the population in general. I'm really happy I bought this book and am eager to complete it and share it with my family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, and validating, read 25 February 2013
By bkjn06 - Published on Amazon.com

About 14 months ago, my body just decided to shutdown. Hindsight, it had been a long time coming with symptoms ranging from sleep problems, hair loss, GI issues and memory problems. I didn't think twice about any of them until 14 months ago. My weight shot up by 15 pounds in 3 weeks, my vision was blurry, my joints/muscles would not recover, I couldn't sleep, but was exhausted, my brain was functioning poorly, I was irritable, sad, angry, gassy, bloated and about 20 other issues. So I went to my doctor. First "diagnosis" (mind you no labs were done or offered)..it was my age. I was 32. Second diagnosis, I was overeating. WRONG! This all happened when I was in peak condition. I was training for a weightlifting competition and was eating better than ever and stronger than ever (until the crash). Third diagnosis, PCOS (no labs done). Fourth diagnosis, hypothyroidism. And on and on and on. I diagnosed myself with adrenal fatigue and decided to take a big ol' long break from the gym and allow myself to sleep as much as I wanted. That, alone, made me feel loads better. For six months, I allowed myself lto sleep as much as possible. Thank goodness for Google! I was also on a birth control pill, which, in hindsight, only exacerbated everything. Finally saw a naturopath who did a lot of lab work and basically told me to rest, eat well, take supplements and enjoy life. I thought there was some validity, but wasn't seeing fast results. Went to yet another doctor. Back to the stupid PCOS diagnosis and within 10 minutes the doctor was prescribing me 5 medications. I was totally done at this point. I started self-treating with loads of supplements (more than 20 different supplements a day). It is a slow progression, but things are looking better.

I found this book while looking for ways to manage my depression. What a godsend this book has been. Not only has it reiterated everything I thought to be true, but it gives valuable advice and background information. This is definitely a revolutionary way of thinking that may cause some to be uncomfortable as it goes against everything we know to be true (or at least fed to us) and causes us to lose faith in a big portion of our medical community. All I can say is, stop drugging yourself up, read this book and get your body back on track. It is ridiculously slow process and patience is necessary. You have to be very mindful to tiny improvements. For me, I noticed my hair stopped falling out as much, I could fall asleep normally (and stay asleep) and about a week ago, I stopped needing naps! I am now going to include other supplements recommended by Dr. Hyman. I can't recommend this book enough. You are not unfixable and you do not need a label. You need to find the imbalances in your body and balance them. Simple as that.

The work Dr Hyman did to write this book is astounding. He really has a heart for helping people. I had no idea any of the food I was eating was affecting me so greatly before I read The UltraMind Solution. Thank you Dr Hyman ☺

By Eli - Published on Amazon.com

I love the directness and detail in the book. Also the fact that medical language has been presented in a way that can be understood.
I just finished the book, already applied some of the suggestions while I was reading and they give results immediately. The tests are helpful and supportive and make his book not only extremely informative but also very practical.
I would recommend it to my closest people as it gives the life back.
