"Are you struggling with attention problems, mood swings, food obsession, or depression? Whatever the issue, you have far more control over your thoughts, feelings, and behavior than you realize. Although medications may bring some relief, in [this book], Dr. Georgia Ede reveals that the most powerful way to change brain chemistry is with food, because that's where brain chemicals come from in the first place."--Dust jacket flap.
