Cutting-edge guide shows how to sharpen your mind, overcome anxiety, and defeat depression
by Craig Weatherby


Why have brain problems ranging from depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and autism to dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's reached epidemic proportions?

Are we all simply destined to lose our focus, concentration, and memory while becoming depressed, anxious, and tired?

The answer is no, according to the compelling new book from Mark Hyman, MD, the three-time
NY Times bestselling author in the cutting-edge field of functional medicine.

Anti-aging expert Mehmet Oz, M.D. – a frequent guest on Oprah Winfrey’s TV show –endorsed the book by saying that Dr. Hyman’s simple seven-step solution can “…unleash your body's hidden ability to dramatically improve mood, memory and thinking speed.”

We were impressed by the extensive research and systematic approach that distinguishes
The UltraMind Solution.

Top Doctors Agree
Dr. Hyman's book drew fulsome praise from some of America's leading wellness-oriented doctors:

“Dr. Hyman's brilliant new book shows us that the emotional resilience and mental clarity we all seek is within our grasp.”
Mehmet C. Oz, M.D., author of YOU: The Owner's Manual
“If you suffer from anxiety, depression, memory loss, or attention problems, the help you need is right here — Mark Hyman's approach is right on the mark.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of The Wisdom of Menopause
“Dr. Hyman shows how to prevent and often reverse mood and brain disorders by addressing their underlying causes. Highly recommended.”
Dean Ornish, M.D., clinical professor of medicine, University of California, San Francisco

The book’s subtitle is
The Simple Plan to Defeat Depression, Overcome Anxiety and Sharpen Your Mind. And as that line suggests, Dr. Hyman’s valuable new book is a practical guide to enhancing brain health.

Broken brain syndrome
Dr. Hyman says that seemingly separate brain/mind problems – poor memory, lack of focus, anxiety, depression, autism, Alzheimer's, dementia, ADD/ADHD and more – all stem from a common syndrome he calls “broken brain”.

Hyman says that the solution to broken brain syndrome lies in the underlying biology that runs cells, organs, and interlocked immune/hormone/nerve systems.

By fixing your body first, you will awaken your body's natural intelligence, allowing it to heal your brain automatically...all by fixing the imbalances in the seven core biological systems at the root of health and most diseases.

Dr. Hyman's findings and approach offer hope for people of every age and circumstance:

§Children with ADD, autism and Asperger's.

§Aging people at risk of slipping into dementia, Alzheimer's, or Parkinson's.

§Those who suffer from depression, anxiety, brain fog, stress, and mood swings.

His proposals are well-supported by research (he cites more than 400 scientific references) and dozens of case studies summarized on the 
UltraMind Web site.

Dr. Hyman tested and refined his approach while he was co-medical director at Canyon Ranch for 10 years, and later in his own private medical practice in Lenox, Massachusetts.

You may have seen Mark Hyman on
The Today Show, Good Morning America or on public television discussing this groundbreaking solution… the same one that he used to help cure himself of chronic fatigue syndrome over a decade ago.

In essence, he was his own guinea pig... because, he told us, the failure of conventional medicine to address brain degeneration left him with no other choice.

We quickly discovered valuable pointers in the book that anyone can put to immediate use.

We hope that you get as much out of this engaging new book as we have and find your own path to optimal brain health -- one that's calm, confident, and happy and lets you fully enjoy all life has to offer.

You can see Dr. Hyman describe some of these powerful case studies in clips from his PBS special on
The UltraMind Solution, which you will find at the UltraMind Web site.

A clear, four-part guide and practical plan
The UltraMind Solution is divided into four sections that lead you from a description of the problem through a step-by-step plan to implement synergistic brain-enhancing tactics in your daily life.

Here’s how the book is organized:

Part I: The UltraMind Solution: Epidemic of Broken Brains

In Part I, you will learn about America’s epidemic of “broken brains” – both the scope and the cause of the problem – and you why the solutions available today are nearly ignored.

Inside these first 12 chapters Dr. Hyman shows why fixing your body is the best way to boost your brain health and why modern psychiatry and neurology remain mired in myths and overlook critical lifestyle factors.

Then you will learn why most of us suffer silent, unnecessary brain damage – all the myriad causes of injury to the fragile, three-pound wonders inside our craniums.

Part II: The seven Keys to an UltraMind

In Part II, Dr. Hyman describes how imbalances in the seven core systems of the body – nutrition, hormones, immune function, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism and mind-body – explain all the symptoms and diseases we think are “brain” problems.

You will also work through a proprietary set of quizzes to help you identify which of the seven keys are out of balance. Once you are done with each quiz, you will receive a score that puts you in one of the three UltraMind Solution care groups.

Each score has a specific set of recommendations for improving the key and optimizing your brain.

Part III: Take the 6-Week Plan: Develop an UltraMind

Part III is a practical, how-to, step-by-step program to fix your broken brain using
The UltraMind Solution.

The heart of the plan is a comprehensive diet and lifestyle change that consists of four basic components that last for six weeks:
  • A healthy eating plan.
  • A basic brain-supplements regimen.
  • Lifestyle changes including exercise, relaxation, sleep, and mental exercises.
  • A clean and green lifestyle to reduce exposure to environmental toxins and support a sustainable future for us all.
Dr. Hyman tells us that most people who follow this approach see significant changes within two weeks.

Part IV: Personalize the seven Keys Based on Your Quiz Scores

In Part IV, you will learn how to correct the unique imbalances you discovered by taking the quizzes in Part III.

Each of us is unique, with areas of weakness and strength. Finding those and adapting your health practices and treatment to that uniqueness is essential to achieve full health and vitality.

The UltraMind Solution offers specific instructions on how to integrate each of these changes into your life so you can optimize the seven keys to UltraWellness and achieve peak brain performance.
