Book Description

Sept. 16 2008
Dr. Daniel Amen's breakthrough brain-healing program has helped hundreds of thousands to overcome depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and attention deficit disorder. The maverick author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life and Healing ADD now presents his proven program for repairing and strengthening our relationships, child-rearing practices, work and study routines, and, ultimately, our soulful connections, in the deepest ways possible. Guided by this book, each of us can learn to balance and optimize the parts of the brain responsible for inner growth, intimacy, and spiritual health.
Drawing upon his experience with over fourteen thousand brain-imaging studies of patients from all walks of life, Dr. Amen has developed an essential tool called the Amen Brain System Checklist, a 101-question self-test used to evaluate the five brain systems that are key to achieving and maintaining a healthy brain-soul connection. The questionnaire identifies the problem brain areas readers may need to work on, offers insight into the degree to which these imbalances affect their lives, and provides targeted strategies for each area of the brain involved with spiritual issues.
These are just a few of the many "brain prescriptions" to be found in Healing the Hardware of the Soul:
  • Develop focus and improve decision-making with the One-Page Miracle for the Soul
  • Use prayer, meditation, and diaphragmatic breathing exercises for superior emotional and spiritual flexibility
  • Heal painful deep soul memories through thought and behavior exercises
  • Learn how forming strong, positive new bonds actually controls impulsive behavior and stabilizes mood swings

Dr. Amen's recommendations include cutting-edge advice on diet, nutritional supplements, and the judicious use of medication when needed. He also explains which medications can unbalance the brain when used improperly. Dramatic before-and-after pictures of the brain demonstrate the medical effectiveness of these clinically based healing techniques.
Whether we learn the self-help strategies of cognitive reprogramming, self-hypnosis, or nutraceutical therapy, seek out psychotherapy, or rely on prescription antidepressants and antianxiety medications, Dr. Amen's sage advice and comprehensive treatment programs give us all the tools we need to optimize our work, relationships, and spiritual connections to become the people we want to be.

Product Description


Barry Sears, M.D. author of The Zone Amen continues to be one of the most innovative researchers of the mind. He is one of the few scientists willing to cross the frontier between neurology and religion to describe the soul in terms of cutting-edge science. I strongly recommend this book to anyone searching to build a better life.

Thomas M. Brod, M.D. Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology; Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA Dr. Amen links his new observations of brain effects to real problems many people suffer, and then offers solid practical advice about what to do about them. Applying his discoveries, many of my patients have experienced "miracles" of sustained relief from misery they thought would be theirs for life.

Emmett Miller, M.D. author of Deep Healing and the web site www.DrMiller.com Healing the Hardware of the Soul takes science a brave and much-needed step forward, bringing mind, body, and soul together in a most fascinating way. It will prove as enlightening for health professionals and religious/spiritual teachers as for anyone who desires deep self-knowledge.

Timmen Cermak, M.D. author of A Time to Heal: The Road to Recovery for Adult Children of Alcoholics Dr. Amen takes another bold step toward a unified understanding of the human brain and all of our human experience. Since all consciousness funnels through the brain, we must accept that the health of our personality can never outstrip the health of our brain. Consequently, our spiritual maturity also rests upon optimal functioning of the brain.

Diane E. Hough, M.S. Counseling Professionals Northwest, Mercer Island, Washington Dr. Amen's work brings science to character traits once considered to be moral or psychological flaws and opens up a door of opportunity to optimize the strength of the human spirit. His book allows people to create behavior changes worthy of trust, leading to healthier relationships by integrating physiology, psychology, and spirituality.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book Nov. 13 2008
By Cheryl D. - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book after reading Dr. Amen's "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life." This was the perfect follow-up.

A lot of the information is the same as "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life" but it is expanded to include spirituality.

Dr. Amen explains his theory on the brain, how it works, and how it can often mis-fire, causing a physical imbalance that is shown on his SPECT scans. He gives great examples of case studies he's done to help the reader relate to an in depth topic.

I greatly enjoyed the authors take on religious and political leaders in regards to brain function.

I found this book very helpful and very insightful. I have gained empathy and respect for myself and everyone close to me. After reading this, you will understand yourself and the people around you so much better.

I heard Dr.Amen speak one Sunday afternoon on PBS and was taken by his philosophy about brain health so I ordered this book and another about ADD. I want to pass them on to everyone I know because they are so informative.

Every person should read this book! Dr. Amen explains the brain and its function in an easy-to-understand manner, then offers both pharmaceutical and natural supplementation solutions. I liked this book so much that I purchased one for each of my loved ones!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good background info - lacks in practical applications. Oct. 8 2013
By Ilana Moss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for research purposes - looking for scientific info to support my own products and services. It does this very well. However, the section on actions to take to heal and improve the brain did not impress me. Other than drugs, diet, and supplements not much was offered. We have access to many products and services today that can help heal the mind and body (some of my favorites are the Immrama Institute, the Foundation for Creating a Mind With Heart, and Institute of Heartmath). I will use Amen's book as a reference in my own writing, but do not recommend it as a resource for self healing.
