The UltraMind Solution Mark Hyman, MD

Could it be that depression, anxiety, insomnia, attention deficit disorder, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, and dementia (not to mention any other of the hundreds of different mental disorders described in the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV” (DSM IV)) may be caused by imbalances in the body and have nothing to do with the meaning, metaphors and myths we associate with them? Can changing diet, nutrient levels or circadian rhythms, sleep patterns or substance use, exercise or play time, managing the stress response, or elimination of toxins from the body, correcting imbalances in the digestive tract, or fixing food sensitivities or allergies can radically transform mood and brain function and deeply influence mood, memory and attention? This lecture reviews the revolutionary new science of systems biology and medicine that shows, at the deepest level, how everything is connected in the body – and how the state of one’s health and well-being is determined by the interplay of your genes, lifestyle, and environment. And that often the best way to change your mind is to change your body.
