The Breakthrough Program that Allows You to See and Heal the 7 Types of ADD/ADHD.
The must-read summary of “Healing ADD: The Breakthrough Program that Allows You to See and Heal the 7 Types of ADD,” by Daniel G. Amen, MD.
Attention deficit disorder (ADD), also known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is the most common learning and behavior problem in children. Children with ADD/ADHD may be hyperactive, unable to control their impulses and have trouble paying attention. These behaviors interfere with school and home life. ADD/ADHD is also one of the most common problems in adults and has been associated with job failures, relationship breakups, loneliness, low self-esteem, drug abuse, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
The good news is that brain imaging research has uncovered the connections between the brain and behavior. Brain SPECT imaging allows doctors to see the areas of vulnerability in the ADD/ADHD brain and why it has such a negative impact on learning, behavior, and emotion. Research shows that there are 7 types of ADD/ADHD affecting different areas of the brain. Targeted treatment of these brain areas can improve brain function and give sufferers more access to their own abilities.
This book gives you a new perspective on ADD/ADHD and gives you the tools to effectively manage and even thrive with ADD/ADHD.

Attention deficit disorder (ADD), also known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is the most common learning and behavior problem in children. It is also a common problem in adults and is associated with job failures, relationship breakups, loneliness, low self-esteem, drug abuse, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Children with ADD/ADHD may be hyperactive and unable to control their impulses, or they may have trouble paying attention. These behaviors interfere with school and home life.
ADD/ADHD is more common in boys than in girls. It’s usually discovered during the early school years when a child has problems paying attention.
It is important to identify and treat ADD/ADHD in children as soon as possible for two reasons. First, treating helps the child now. If the child learns more easily at school, it helps him avoid the anxiety and depression associated with academic difficulties. Second, untreated ADD/ADHD increases the risk of depression, drug abuse, obesity, smoking, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Most psychiatrists make diagnoses on ADD/ADHD and decide on treatment based on symptom clusters found in the American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). However, these symptom-based treatments—behavioral therapy (BT) and medical management (MM)—do not provide sustained benefit for most ADHD children. BT does not provide any significant reduction in core ADHD symptoms. While MM provides strong support for the immediate reduction of symptoms, recent brain imaging research suggests that using stimulants alone may make the situation worse for many.
