Revue de presse

"Dr. Hyman's brilliant new book shows us that the emotional resilience and mental clarity we all seek is within our grasp. You too can unleash the body's hidden ability to dramatically improve mood, memory, and thinking speed." -- Mehmet C. Oz, M.D., author of YOU: The Owner's Manual

"The UltraMind Solution is an amazing book that will help you today. It is packed with practical information to help you heal your body and enhance your brain." -- Daniel G. Amen, M.D., author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

"For the past thirty years, I've studied how comprehensive lifestyle change can prevent and reverse many chronic illnesses. Now, Dr. Hyman shows how to prevent and often reverse mood and brain disorders by addressing their underlying causes. Highly recommended." -- Dean Ornish, M.D., clinical professor of medicine, University of California, San Francisco, and author of Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and The Spectrum

"If you suffer from anxiety, depression, memory loss, or attention problems, the help you need is right here -- in UltraMind. Mark Hyman's approach is right on the mark." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of The Wisdom of Menopause

Présentation de l'éditeur

A hidden epidemic races around the globe -- we can't see it or touch it, which makes it so dangerous.

The invisible epidemic has led to the suffering of millions who spend billions on drugs, only to find they don't work.

This is an epidemic of broken brains.

"Broken brains" go by many names -- depression, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, attention deficit disorder, autism, and dementia, to name a few -- and show up in radically different ways from person to person, making each seem like a separate problem.

But the truth is that these "diagnoses" are all the result of a few basic problems with our biology. Pinpoint these biological problems, fix them, and let your body's natural healing intelligence take over to repair your brain. Now you can experience an UltraMind -- one that is highly focused and able to pay attention at will, with a strong, reliable memory and a mood that is calm, confident, in control, and in good spirits.

We have all heard of the mind-body connection or how our thoughts affect the health of our body. But the reverse is far more powerful: what you do to your body, your basic biology, has a profound effect on your brain.

Have you ever experienced instant clarity after exercise? Alertness after drinking coffee? A mental crash after popping candy? Does your brain inexplicably slow down during stress, while multitasking, or when meeting a deadline? Each is an example of how what we do to our bodies -- whether through nutrition, sleep, exercise, or stress -- has a dramatic effect on our brains.

Conventional treatments don't help, or provide only slight benefit, because they just manage symptoms rather than deal with -- and heal -- the underlying problem. And just as brain problems all stem from the same root causes, they all have the same solution -- The UltraMind Solution.

Our ancient genes interact with our environment to create systemic imbalances that affect our brains. Correct those imbalances -- most caused by nutritional deficiencies, allergens, infections, toxins, and stress -- and you can achieve optimum mental health without drugs or psychotherapy.

The UltraMind Solution is the future of medicine, the culmination of the last twenty years of research on what makes the brain happy, focused, and calm; research that has uncovered a few simple factors that explain why things go wrong and how to fix them.

Don't wait for this revolution in medicine to trickle into your doctor's office: it usually takes research twenty years to move from the lab to the patient. The answers are here, right now, in The UltraMind Solution.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intéressant mais compliqué à mettre en oeuvre ! 10 janvier 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
L'ouvrage démontre combien ce que nous mangeons a un impact sur le fonctionnement de notre cerveau. Nous absorbons trop d'éléments nocifs, de polluants et pas assez de minéraux et vitamines. L'auteur recommande de prendre des compléments alimentaires à assez fortes doses et de façon continue. Les recommandations sont difficiles à suivre en France où l'on trouve difficile ce type de suppléments très courants aux Etats-Unis. Les exemples de liens entre alimentation et dépression, troubles du comportement sont réellement troublants, difficile de ne pas regarder son assiette d'un autre oeil !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What Most Doctors (including ME) Were Never Taught 10 mars 2009
Par James John Hollandsworth, M.D. - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
One of my guiding principles has always been: Never read a book that has the word "ultra" in the title.

However, interesting perspectives on diet & health intrigue me, & when I saw endorsements from such respected doctors as Dean Ornish, Christiane Northrup & Mehmet Oz, I decided to break my rule and plunge into The UltraMind Solution.

I'm glad I did, for this book is an engaging read that's full of cutting edge science & practical advice. Dr. Mark Hyman has been on a mission to do medicine & health differently since conventional medical thinking failed him in his own debilitating illness twelve years ago. He convincingly argues that maintaining the body's health is essential for the brain's well-being, and that many mental & psychological disorders can be rooted in physical, biochemical derangements in the body's health & metabolism.

In part one of the book he details the background: his personal story which led to his changed philosophy & practice of medicine. He is an advocate of what is termed functional medicine, a relatively new discipline which focuses on not the established "label the disease, give it a drug" approach but "find what's functionally wrong behind the patient's symptoms, then correct the body's metabolism back to optimum function."

The second part of the book contain the outline of his "Seven Keys to UltraWellness" (argh! there's that word again!). He covers optimizing nutrition, balancing hormones, reducing inflammation throughout the body, fixing digestive tract problems, enhancing the body's detoxification, boosting energy metabolism, & calming the mind itself. The third part of the book covers a six week plan to initiate many of these changes, while the fourth part goes into specifics for each of his seven key areas.

Ok, so what's the bottom line? There's a lot of intriguing information and sound advice in the 400+ pages, & I saw nothing that I absolutely disagreed with. Like any diet or health book, he has his own viewpoint & focus, & some of his strategies & recommendations will work better for some than others. This book was a major swing factor in my own decision to try a vegan gluten free caffeine free water only lifestyle, which was difficult but very beneficial for me in multiple areas. I can see this book being useful for two groups of people: First, people who are suffering from problems such as anxiety, depression, "brain fog", adhd, migraines or other brain related problems might find something helpful or even life-changing in his plan. Other people, like myself, who are interested in new approaches & optimum health will certainly find new concepts & tools that they can implement in their own healthy lifestyle. Either way, an excellent book to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Restore your energy naturally 18 décembre 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
I was privileged to be one of the participants who was chosen to undergo the Ultramind solution for six weeks prior to publication. Although it has only been 18 days since I started, the change in my energy level and my ability to concentrate is remarkable.
I have been suffering from intense fatigue and trouble concentrating for the last two years, and my physicians have been unable to find a medical diagnosis for my symptoms. Being a 46-year-old graduate student, wife, mother and employee, I have to be able to concentrate for long periods of time, especially in the evenings after work. Before the Ultramind solution, I could not concentrate or stay focused past the early morning. Without knowing exactly when it occurred, I now find that my energy has been restored enough so that I can work twelve hour shifts at the hospital without fatigue and still go home and study, while retaining what I read. As a side effect, I have lost close to ten pounds without ever going hungry.
Although it may sound totally impossible to remove all processed foods, sugar, dairy, trans fat, wheat and flour products as Dr. Hyman required from my diet, I have discovered that all of my prior sugar cravings have disappeared completely, even now during the hoiday season when cookies and candy abound. I snack on nuts and fruit and make sure I eat good proteins and plenty of fresh vegetables and I drink plenty of water.
In the beginning I thought I would never be able to make it six weeks, but three weeks have breezed by. I am definitely going to make the Ultramind Solution a way of life from now on. Dr. Hyman's principles are simple yet effective.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How I got my focus back 6 janvier 2009
Par Stephanie Fleck - Publié sur
A little over a year ago I had my second child. I worked hard at eating healthy while I was at home for the first three months, and I was quite successful, but when I returned to work full time I felt to busy to continue my healthy lifestyle. For lunch I would eat packaged, frozen entrees or even worse go to our hospital cafeteria and have grilled cheese sandwich with french fries and a soda, this was happening three to four times a week. On my way home, I would stop by the store and pick up dinner that was already prepared or food that was pre-packaged so all I had to do was heat it up. This was no way to teach my kids healthy eating. I have a petite frame and was not overweight by any means but I could tell I was slowly getting thicker around the middle, in addition, I constantly felt tired, unfocused, and distracted. Every time I ate I felt sick, almost like a feeling of being hung-over but without drinking. I decided it was time to change how I, and my family, ate. I have heard of the healing power of food and I decided it was time to try the benefits of whole, unprocessed foods.

Upon starting this program, I decided I had to commit myself wholly. I began by doing all my grocery shopping in Sundays as well as cutting up all my fruits and vegetable so they were easily accessible. I also planned out my breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus in writing for the entire week and stuck to them. I will admit the first week was hard; giving up sugar and my biggest food obsession - soda. After the first week it became easier and easier. As the program continued, my mind felt clearer; I felt sharper at work. The fog that inhabited my brain was lifting and I started to realize that I had been going through daily motions without motivation or care for what I was doing; now I take on challenges because I enjoy thinking through the problems. I also began to feel more energized, more so than I had in a long time, I could finally make it through the entire day without complaining I was tired; I wake up at 4:30 in the morning to exercise before getting ready for work and I don't get to bed until my kids are finally asleep around 9:30 pm. I have the liveliness now to work, be a wife, and play with my kids every day.

There were definitely added benefits to following Dr. Hyman's six-week program. By eating food that was promoted in book and avoiding the foods that contribute to brain fog, inflammation, and, for me, the overall feeling of frustration, I lost body fat, my clothes fit much better, and I am down to my goal weight/size that I have been trying to achieve for years. When you eat whole, unprocessed foods, your weight is naturally controlled; no need to count calories. Additionally, within the first few weeks my skin looked brighter, I now feel comfortable leaving the house without make-up and my skin is much healthier. I feel Dr. Hyman's programs and books are well worth the time and commitment, I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to bring focus and clarity back into their life. You feel so good about yourself that I think it will be difficult to go back to old eating habits. I look forward to my future of a healthy body and brain, both inside and out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Change Your Life in 6 Weeks!!! 7 janvier 2009
Par S. Stinson - Publié sur
I was one of the privileged few selected to undergo the initial trial of the UltraMind Solution, and the changes I have seen in my body and mind after 5 weeks on the program have been amazing! I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels they are living in a "brain fog".

Like most of the people who have reviewed this book, I may not have placed reviews in the past, but I am a real person who has actually been through this program! I am a physician practicing in a fast-paced emergency department, and I turned to this program as a last-ditch effort to heal my "broken brain." I excelled early in my career, but over the past 5 years have noted a decline in my mental functioning. I gradually became less motivated to do anything other than get up and go to work--just early enough to shower and change--then come back home, go to sleep, and wake up and do the same thing the next day. I had little motivation to exercise as I had in the past (1 hour cardio daily through my 2nd year of med school) or do any other activities I once enjoyed. I noticed both short- and long-term memory problems. I stuttered when I tried to explain results and plans of care to patients, and they looked at me like I was the one who needed to be in the hospital bed, not them! I felt stressed with every shift, could not finish my notes in a timely manner, could not organize my thoughts, and had difficulty making decisions. At home I was chronically tired, apathetic, bordering clinical depression. I had dry skin and chronic itchy skin after showering. I was not happy; in fact, I was miserable and felt like my life was falling apart around me.

Soon after starting this plan, people around me began to notice changes in my skin. I noticed I was no longer stressed at work, made more rapid decisions, no longer stuttered, and was able to juggle more patients at a time. I became more motivated to do things at home and outside of work, and I became a happier person overall!

I began this program with some skepticism but was soon won over. Although initially difficult to eat all organic food, cut out dairy, wheat, gluten, and sweeteners, I did find plenty of food to eat, and I even learned to enjoy foods I never liked before! With my hectic and ever-changing schedule, I had difficulty sticking w/ the minimal daily exercise (30 minutes of walking) and relaxation exercises, but overall the plan was easy to stick to. I plan to continue this plan indefinitely and hopefully encourage my spouse and family to adopt it as well.

I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those people who feel like they are at the end of their rope as I was. Give it a try and see how you feel. You won't regret it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Alternative Medicine Goes Mainstream 10 mars 2009

Book Review: The UltraMind Solution: Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First (Scribner, Dec 2008) by Mark Hyman, M.D.

Mark Hyman, the author of the bestselling The UltraMind Solution has hit home with readers by explaining to them the correlation between the brain and the body. Bringing the whole body concept (functional medicine) to the forefront of the doctor-patient relationship, Dr. Hyman writes, "I was trained according to the dogma of separate medical specialties--for heart problems you see the cardiologist, . . .The road map I was given in medical school to navigate through the territory of illness was the wrong map. It taught us to diagnose disease and then assign standardized treatments no matter who was suffering. This is the wrong approach." Instead, he asks that functional medicine be used in the diagnosis of a disease.

Dr. Hyman states that there are Myths of Psychiatry and Neurology:

* You know the name of your disease, you know what's wrong with you
* Your brain is protected from your body
* Drugs are the answer to mental illness
* You can talk or meditate away your mood and brain problems
* Once you lose brain cells, they are gone forever.

These myths are examples of common thinking which he seeks to expunge from our culture. Hyman advocates a return to healthier living by:

1. Optimizing nutrition--we are all of us, nutritionally imbalanced
2. Balancing our hormones--they must work in sync with each other
3. Cool off any inflammation--"Inflammation of the brain is a central theme for almost all psychiatric and neurologic conditions, as well as most chronic disease."
4. Fix the digestive system--problems here inevitably lead to sickness
5. Enhance detoxification--the toxic burden during our lifetime is excessive and can lead to disease
6. Boost energy metabolism--"Loss of energy is found is most brain disorders." We use food and oxygen to fuel our cells
7. Calm our minds--we all need meaning, purpose, love, and nourishing relationships

Dr. Hyman believes that our greatest tool in the human arsenal for disease prevention and reversal is the mighty fork. Food itself (buzzword--nutrigenomics) allows for personalization of any "prescription."

Hyman recommends Omega-3 fatty acids which build cell membranes, reduce inflammation, balance sugar, and increase new cell growth in the brain. He also writes that the human diet needs lean protein (eggs, nuts, seeds, chicken, soy); carbs--important for long-term health and brain function (eat plants); and vitamins and minerals--we need supplementation.

"Depression is not a psychiatric illness, but a system disease." Dr. Hyman sees the individuality of each patient, addressing illness differently. In The UltraMind Solution, he addresses Alzheimer's, ADHD, and Autism--problems seen to be of the brain, but which also present physical signs in the body.

Hyman warns against "The four top things purchased in American supermarkets" which are "mood-altering drugs."

* Sugar
* Caffeine--causes anxiety and depression
* Alcohol--more than four glasses a day doubles the risk of dementia, whereas a few glasses a week/not daily could reduce the risk of dementia by 35%
* Nicotine--constricts blood flow to the brain; cigarette smoke contains 4,000 toxins and leads to depression

I must say that some of the ideas encompassed in The UltraMind Solution have been present in the alternative medicine world for a time, but here they are put into perspective with a whole body approach, focusing on the brain, by a doctor who has openly shunned an element of his medical training. It is an excellent book, and no doubt should be read by many, but is a must read for parents.

The cover of The UltraMind Solution is a stalk of broccoli in a prescription bottle, set against a bright fire engine red background. Simple, but effective. Let food be your medicine.
