You Are Not Your Brain: Book Review

Book Review: You Are Not Your Brain, The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life by Jeffrey Schwartz, M. D. and Rebecca Gladding, M. D.

You Are Not Your Brain is a brilliant guide to understanding and transforming what the authors call “deceptive brain messages” – our well worn repetitive stories that lead to fear, worry, bad habits, low-self esteem, unhealthy behaviors, stuck patterns, and other dysfunctional impulses, feelings, and actions.

While it’s not groundbreaking news that it’s possible to change unhealthy beliefs and dysfunctional habits, most people still find it extremely difficult to do so.

What makes this book stand out is the way the authors – two neuroscience experts – describe in clear, lay person terms the precise brain biology that creates these faulty messages and how the very way the brain functions makes it extremely difficult though not impossible to change them.

Having this knowledge in hand coupled with their well explained set of research-proven techniques, empowers you to conquer these unhelpful messages and harmful behaviors once and for all.

Retraining the brain for CFS, FMS, MCS, PTSD, GWS

The brain is not a static, fixed structure, but is highly dynamic and changeable.  Scientists have coined the term “brain plasticity” to describe this lifelong capacity for the brain “to reorganize neural pathways based on new experiences”  and “the changing of neurons, the organization of their networks, and their functions via new experiences.”  This has far-reaching implications, making this area of research a new frontier in science and medicine.

Ashok Gupta is an innovative researcher and therapist, who is applying the principle of brain plasticity to help people recover from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromylagia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Gulf War Syndrome.  His method, prompted by his own encounter with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and followed by ten years of research and study, is called Gupta Amygdala Retraining.
