Publisher's Summary

Losing your memory? Can't focus or concentrate? Do you have brain fog or tire easily? Have you lost your zest for life or motivation? Do people tell you this is all a normal part of aging? If so, your brain may be growing old too fast, or degenerating. Modern diets, a stressful lifestyle, and environmental toxins all take their toll on the brain. This doesn't just happen to seniors - brain disorders and degeneration are on the rise for young and old alike. The good news is the brain is extremely adaptable and wants to get well. You simply have to know how to feed and care for your brain. How do you know if your brain isn't working? See if some of these signs and symptoms of brain degeneration apply to you:

memory loss
brain fog
difficulty learning
lack of motivation, drive, or passion
tire easily
poor focus and concentration
fatigue in response to certain chemicals or foods
Brain degeneration affects millions of Americans of all ages. The destruction sets in years or even decades before Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, or other serious neurological diseases can be diagnosed. Learn how to spot brain degeneration and stop it before it's too late. Why Isn't My Brain Working? will teach you strategies to save and improve brain function. You will learn how simple diet and lifestyle changes and nutritional therapy can profoundly impact your brain health and thus the quality of your life. Don't waste another day wondering why your brain is not working. Learn what you can and should do about it. Why Isn't My Brain Working? harnesses cutting-edge scientific research for safe, simple, and truly effective solutions to declining brain function.

A book I wish I could have read earlier

What did you love best about Why Isn't My Brain Working??

It made me understand, concretely, how the brain is in constant interaction with all parts of the body. Tthis interconnection is at the center of most health problems and must be taken into account in the search for well-being, and of course in all our remedial or preventive efforts. A malfunction anywhere often reflects a problem in the brain, and it in turn can cause further damage to the brain. Vaguely knowing that something might be bad for my health was not enough to me to act accordingly, especially in my youth, but knowing concretely how it would damage my brain sure would have been!

What other book might you compare Why Isn't My Brain Working? to and why?

Datis Kharraziac's book on Thyroid, another must. David Perlemutter's Grain Brain. They are all books that probe the deeper workings of the human organism.

Any additional comments?

If I had read this book twenty, ten, or even five years ago, I would be in hugely better shape today. I have read many books on various aspects of health, and I have invested a lot in all sorts of ways to improve my functional health, but without a deep and detailed understanding of the brain, it never came together for me, and my various attempts as well as those of numerous health practitioners, many excellent in their own domain, never coalesced into the good health I sought.

Fine, but very elaborate, content

I like the content of the book, but it's quite long, partially due to the many (!) case stories.

First of all, I dislike case stories presented in anecdotal form. Each time a new anecdote is told, one has put oneself in a state of mind to relate to that story. It gives a haphazard, jumbled-up feeling. you're listening to a list of dopamine's various roles in the brain, then the next moment you're presented with Liz, 27, who visited Dr. XX (one of Dr. Datis many students/franchise partners?) with problems of inattention, blah blah blah..." then before you know it, that story is over and he's moved on to listing the benefits of natural supplements, rinse and repeat.

Those case stories serve as testimonials. They are there, partially (I believe), to give you the feeling that this Dr. Datis fella is THE guy who can you YOU. He listens. He cares. Etc. Just be aware that he is VERY expensive.

It also feels like each and every issue with the brain is causing: inattention, moodiness, aggressive behavior, etc. So each list of "do you suffer from these symptoms" sounds ultra similar. My take on it: don't expect to be able to diagnose yourself from a book like this. You can't.

For the above reasons, I recommend getting the book, not the audiobook. And preferably the Kindle version. That way, you can search for your issues, keywords, etc – find what you need, and not have to bother with the many case anecdotes.

Has changed how I live my life completely

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Book filled with incredible research that is easy to digest. It was read really well for a non-fiction scientific based book. I can't recommend it more for people looking for answers.

Which character – as performed by Adam Verner – was your favourite?

Great reader, engaging and interesting throughout.

omg. bad.

struggling to finish. lost interest even before finishing one third of the book. his explanations are all vague. he claim to have all the protocols to help brain disorders but fail to tell us a more specific content.. all in all. not for me. i would rather read a book by medically trained neuro physicians than listening to this crapt.
