What does your brain have to do with experiencing joy?

A lot more than most of us realize.

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Earl Henslin reveals how the study of brain imaging turned his practice of psychotherapy upside down—with remarkably  positive results.

He shares answers to puzzling questions, such as
Why isn’t my faith in God enough to erase my blue moods?Why haven’t I been able to conquer my anger? Pray away my fear and worry?Why can’t I find freedom from secret obsessions and addictions?Using the Brain System Checklist, Dr. Henslin explains what happens to the 5 Mood Centers in the brain when any of those areas are out of balance. This is great news, especially for those tortured by the fear that something is fundamentally wrong with them when the problem actually lies between their ears.

Read this practical, easy-to-understand, and often entertaining book, and you’ll know exactly how to nourish your mind, balance your brain, and help  others do the same. After all, the capacity for joy is a terrible thing to waste.
