Optimize My Brain
There doesn’t necessarily have to be something “wrong” with you in order for you to benefit from better brain health. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of a clearer, sharper mind and the effects it has on the rest of the body.
How Amen Clinics Can Help
There’s no such thing as “normal.” As the saying goes, “everyone is normal…until you get to know them.” Chances are, you or someone you love will suffer from an imbalanced brain at some point in your life. This may be due to a specific issue, like ADD or anxiety, which may or may not have been diagnosed. Or, it could be the result of years of brain mistreatment that adds up to mental fogginess—something most doctors can’t diagnose and can’t tell you how to fix. Dr. Amen’s years of experience can help you learn more about your brain, choose the most appropriate treatment program for your brain, and help you comply with the program using the unique tools at his disposal.
SPECT imaging (which stands for single-photon emission computerized tomography) is a special kind of photograph we take of the brain to help us better understand how it works and what is going on inside of it. SPECT can specifically help people age better by:
- Helping identify areas of low activity and blood flow in the brain
- Helping determine if there could be co-occurring conditions that need treatment
- Helping determine if treatment is working correctly
- Increasing treatment compliance by showing pictures of results
- Helping people gain a better understanding of their brain through visuals
