Greetings Robert et al:
This is Linda Ralph writing to you. I have written to you a few times now. You may remember me, I am from Victoria and went on the Alaska Cruise. I have something I would like to share with you.
I am half way through a newly purchased book, “The Ultra Mind Solution by the author: Mark Hyman, MD. I have had one of Mark’s earlier books , “The Ultra Simple Diet” for years now , and was truly very excited to find two new books published by him recently, especially the one having to do with the brain, and healing and fixing the brain, entitled: “The UltraMind Solution“. On the cover of this book it says:
“Fix Your Broken Brain By Healing Your Body First”.
And, I really do believe that to be true. For me, this book reiterates much of what I have learned through your website, Robert. Be it through your blog, your published works or through information that I have heard from radio show guests, or through the personal stories written or told, of many folks who are having successes in coping with PD.
In addition to that, this book is also jam packed with practical information to help one heal and to enhance the brain. It has realms of information , that although pretty detailed at times, does provide the reader with learning that I feel is relevant and vital. And there are also a personal case studies as well, that seem, ‘bring it all home’, so to speak, as well as referencing to PD.
Hyman speaks of
‘treating the body as a whole and not as separate entities’.
Now this is not a new idea. But it merits repetition. He too, states, that
‘your brain may be broken, but it can be fixed’.
This idea certainly rings true of the last few years findings and new discoveries about the brain. Many books and articles have illuded to the fact that you can rewire your brain, you can change it, and maybe you can even fix it. Outlined in this book is a detailed (but not overly complicated ) way as to what one does to go about ‘fixing the brain”, and the methods to follow to have success.
Hyman says that by ‘pinpointing the biological problem one can then fix it, by letting the body’s natural healing intelligence take over to repair your brain’. He then goes on provide a program, a simple way to do this through his : Seven Keys to Ultra Wellness. This is a very well written and helpful book. (Another recent book of his, with over 200 recipes, “The Ultra Metabolism Cookbook“, is also an excellent resource.)
If you haven’t heard of him, ( and you probably have) I do believe that you would find this book of his, to be another delightful addition and resource for your readers. It is a good read.
There may be some merit in your readers knowing about this book and its author. Maybe this author could be a guest on your show??
