Thank-You Mark Hyman, M.D.!!!!!! This is a fantastic book! I was able to stop taking my Protonix medicine and no more heartburn, after altering my eating habits. I did something very similar to his recommendation and lost 50lbs years ago. No more sinus drainage, night time coughing has stopped, and lost 5 lbs the first week. JS from Maryland!

One of my guiding prin...
One of my guiding principles has always been: Never read a book that has the word "ultra" in the title. However, interesting perspectives on diet & health intrigue me, & when I saw endorsements from such respected doctors as Dean Ornish, Christiane Northrup & Mehmet Oz, I decided to break my rule and plunge into The UltraMind Solution. I'm glad I did, for this book is an engaging read that's full of cutting edge science & practical advice. Dr. Mark Hyman has been on a mission to do medicine & health differently since conventional medical thinking failed him in his own debilitating illness twelve years ago. He convincingly argues that maintaining the body's health is essential for the brain's well-being, and that many mental & psychological disorders can be rooted in physical, biochemical derangements in the body's health & metabolism. In part one of the book he details the background: his personal story which led to his changed philosophy & practice of medicine. He is an advocate of what is termed functional medicine, a relatively new discipline which focuses on not the established "label the disease, give it a drug" approach but "find what's functionally wrong behind the patient's symptoms, then correct the body's metabolism back to optimum function." The second part of the book contain the outline of his "Seven Keys to UltraWellness" (argh! there's that word again!). He covers optimizing nutrition, balancing hormones, reducing inflammation throughout the body, fixing digestive tract problems, enhancing the body's detoxification, boosting energy metabolism, & calming the mind itself. The third part of the book covers a six week plan to initiate many of these changes, while the fourth part goes into specifics for each of his seven key areas. Ok, so what's the bottom line? There's a lot of intriguing information and sound advice in the 400+ pages, & I saw nothing that I absolutely disagreed with. Like any diet or health book, he has his own viewpoint & focus, & some of his strategies & recommendations will work better for some than others. This book was a major swing factor in my own decision to try a vegan gluten free caffeine free water only lifestyle, which was difficult but very beneficial for me in multiple areas. I can see this book being useful for two groups of people: First, people who are suffering from problems such as anxiety, depression, "brain fog", adhd, migraines or other brain related problems might find something helpful or even life-changing in his plan. Other people, like myself, who are interested in new approaches & optimum health will certainly find new concepts & tools that they can implement in their own healthy lifestyle. Either way, an excellent book to read.

This was a book suggested to me by a doctor, in hopes that I may find some answers to my questions about my mental health. I admit, I have not yet attempted a six week plan to cut all pre-processed foods, gluten and dairy out of my diet, but I have added some supplements suggested. This book is one that makes sense to me, but in the world we live today, I have a hard time even beginning to fathom how I could go about making these changes. It seems as though following this diet may cause more stressers than I think it could ever hope to alleviate. That said, I may work toward it, if I can find some decaf coffee that will fulfill my morning ritual need.
