Dr. Leonid Altshuler is a board-certified psychiatrist with over 20 years’ experience.
This book details his groundbreaking discoveries in brain research, linking two epidemics of the modern world, stress/depression/anxiety and metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance.
In Remake Your Brain Dr. Altshuler explains how insulin resistance in the brain makes people experience constant stress, which eventually causes mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and dementia.
Altshuler gives step by step practical solutions on how to naturally and successfully remake your brain to treat depression and anxiety and improve memory.
Everyone is born with the capacity to be happy and content. Later something happens, and we develop a variety of problems related to our brains. Many people become depressed and anxious.
There is also a genetic predisposition to age-related hormonal changes and how we react to the different types of stresses we experience in our lives. These combined factors play a role in the development of unhappiness. It is up to all of us to do what is in our power to avoid destroying our happiness because of these factors.
One of the related challenges of modern-day medicine is metabolic syndrome, which affects many hundreds of millions of people all around the world. Modern brain research has established a link between metabolic syndrome and the appearance of certain types of mental illness related to our day to day happiness.
The brains of people with metabolic syndrome shut down key processes for the manufacture of neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of well-being and overall happiness.
This book will help you to overcome these problems and remake your brain, to recover how your brain naturally functions, and to become happy again because of this.
