Publisher's Summary

For the 38 million Americans who suffer from anxiety and/or depression (and for those who treat them), Dr. Daniel G. Amen has liberating news. Using a sophisticated brain-imaging technology called SPECT (single photon emissions computed tomography), Amen and his colleagues have discovered that these all-too-common disorders are, in large part, the result of measurable brain dysfunction, of physical neurological conditions that clinicians can actually see. And what they can see, they can treat more effectively than ever before.This groundbreaking work describes the seven distinct types of anxiety and depression revealed by The Amen Clinics' signature brain-imaging studies; offers diagnotic tools and guidelines to determine the specific type affecting each individual (even where SPECT imaging technology is not available); and provides a comprehensive program for treating each type. Treatment includes medication, diet, supplements, exercise, and social and therapeutic support.
Based on powerful new science derived from more than 17,000 SPECT scans, Healing Anxiety and Depression is a lucid and pratical guide to conquering these potentially devastating disorders.

A commercial for SPECT

After reading several positive reviews about this book, I was very disappointed when I actually listened to it myself.. The book was written by scientists/doctors for fellow scientists/doctors, and explores each type of disorder in intricate detail with primary focus on the author?s work with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) brain scans.

The book does not provide you with any practical non drug related self help tools but rather refers the listener to the need for undertaking a SPECT scan then take drugs to remedy the situation.

I felt frustrated listening to it because I have not had a SPECT brain scan, and I felt I needed to rush out and hand over my money to have one done, so in that sense how the book was relevant to me. In that sense the book felt like a ongoing mononitious commercial for SPECT.

Disappointing

I should have read the reader's reviews before purchasing this book. It contains tons of technical information which doesn't do much good for someone who actually suffers from depression. It is more like a text book rather than a "self-help" guide.
