Overview

Are you a Lover, constantly surrounding yourself with people? Or a Guardian, always worried about those close to you? How about a Stoic? A Dreamer, Warrior, or Star?

These are the different brain chemistry types identified by pioneering nutritional psychiatrist Michael Lesser, M.D. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Lesser shows how identifying your brain chemistry type can help you conquer depression, reduce stress, and maximize your mind-without prescription drugs. Instead, The Brain Chemistry Diet plan relies on a natural, safe, and effective nutritional approach to regulating mood and boosting brainpower. Tailored to each of the six brain chemistry types, this diet, vitamin, and supplement approach helps readers embrace their strengths, minimize their weaknesses, and nurture the needs of their particular brain type.

Dr. Lesser, along with Linus Pauling, is one of the founders of the orthomolecular psychiatry movement, which focuses on nutritional and vitamin therapy to regulate moods. The Brain Chemistry Diet is his powerful new approach to regulating the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the human brain through proper nourishment and nutrition.

Author Biography: Michael Lesser, M.D., has published more than fifty peer-reviewed journal articles on the subject of orthomolecular psychiatry, including the premier academic review in the field. He is also the founder of the Orthomolecular Medical Society and Nutritional Medicine, a communications company that sponsors major world conferences on nutrition and vitamin therapy. He has been in private practice for the past twenty years and has testified before the U.S. Senate on nutrition andmental health.

Colleen Kapklein is a writer and former book editor.
