This Is Your Brain On Joy

This Is Your Brain On Joy
A Revolutionary Program for Balancing Mood,
Restoring Brain Health, and Nurturing Spiritual Growth
By Dr. Earl Henslin
Published By Thomas Nelson
I was not an overly health conscious person. I didn’t really watch my weight or worry about what I eat. I wouldn’t take vitamins. In fact, it would takes a lot for me to take a medication of any kind.
After reading This Is Your Brain On Joy by Dr. Earl Henslin all those statements have changed. I now take four vitamins daily and have modified my diet to eat foods that better equip my body for joy and mental health.
This book is an amazingly readable look into how our brains function and what strategies we can apply in our daily living to help us to reach our maximum potential.
Dr. Earl Henslin is passionate about brain science and the benefits of SPECT imaging. SPECT imaging (Single photon emission computerized tomography) has proved to be effective with his patients to diagnose brain complications like ADD, OCD, and varies forms of depression. SPECT is used by tracking the blood flow in the brain to help recognize areas of decreased function.
Don’t I sound smart?
The truth is, I have never felt so respected by a person with the title Dr. before. He modifies his speech to be reader friendly and makes his descriptions of brain function very basic and easy to grasp without belittling or talking down to the reader. He truly wants the reader to understand and he works very hard to meet that goal.
In This Is Your Brain On Joy you will mark a checklist (like taking a quiz)  of your weaknesses and strengths in the five mood centers of the brain. From that quiz you will discover possible areas of overactive or under active brain functioning. Each chapter then addresses each of these areas of the brain. Vitamin supplements and possible medication solutions are listed as well as nutritional advice, quotes for positive thinking, scriptures to meditate on, music therapy, exercise recommendations, and cinamatherapy.
This Is Your Brain On Joy is packed full of useful information to help you be the best you that you can be. With these tools you can be well on your way to better understanding and empathy for others as well as attaining optimal joy for yourself.
