A radically new approach to treating the single most common learning and behavioral problem in America. Commonly perceived as a flavor-of-the-month diagnosis, ADD is, in fact, an enormous health problem that will only continue to grow. It affects fully 6 percent of the population, yet less than one-third of them are taking medication. Why? According to Dr. Daniel Amen, Attention Deficit Disorder is underdiagnosed, incorrectly treated, and poorly understood. Dr. Amen, board-certified in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry and nuclear medicine, has discovered that there are six types of ADD-not just the commonly known two. Moreover, the most frequently prescribed treatment-Ritalin-makes four of these types worse. Dr. Amen's discovery results from an intensive, years-long study of brain imaging that identified the distinctive brain dysfunctions characterizing each ADD type. Giving guidelines and diagnostic tools for determining which type of ADD an adult or child has, Healing ADD from the Inside Out provides readers with a comprehensive and proven program for enhancing the brain function for each of the six types of Attention Deficit Disorder. Encompassing medications, diet, supplements, exercise, and social support, this is the state of the art in ADD treatment. ADD sufferers often say, "The harder I try, the worse it gets." Dr. Amen tells them how to-for the first time-get well.To listen to an interview with Dr. Daniel Amen, check out www.TalktoTara.com

Really kept my interest, helped me undertand the diagnosis better, and helped me to understand the different ways ADD affects me personally and how it can even affect me differently than others with ADD.
