Internationally renowned family doctor William Sears and noted neurologist Vincent M. Fortanasce present an accessible, all-ages guide to optimum brain health, from treating depression, anxiety, and ADHD to preventing Alzheimer’s and dementia, with or without medication.

The brain is a complex organ, responsible for our thoughts, our feelings, our hopes and dreams. It’s also vulnerable to a host of ailments that negatively impact quality of life, from disorders such as depression, anxiety, and ADHD that can strike at any time to illnesses of aging like Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The good news is, this diverse set of mental and emotional challenges all stem from the same cause: imbalance in the brain. And getting your brain back in balance—without medication, or in partnership with it—is easier than you think.

Whether you’re experiencing “normal” mental and emotional burnout or wrestling with diagnosed illness, The Healthy Brain Book can help you thrive. It explains:

How what we think can change how well we thinkThe role of inflammation in the brain, and how food and activity can reverse itWhat drugs enhance and suppress the brain’s ability to heal itselfActionable advice to improve your memory, promote learning, and prevent common brain ailmentsHow to personalize the book’s tools for your unique brain
