Dear Amen Clinics Patient,
As we navigate the uncertainty created by COVID-19, we continue to be focused on the well-being of our employees and patients while also doing our part in contributing to the well-being of our wider community. Please see the following update on our plans for operations of our Amen Clinics across the country.

Currently, we are open. We plan to continue to be available for our patients. If we are mandated by governmental action to close our facility, we have a plan in place to still be available to you via phone and video. We are here for you. That said, with consideration of the guidance given by governmental authorities as well as health professionals, Amen Clinics is reducing our on-site personnel beginning on Monday, March 16th. We are moving as many patients as possible to telephone or video appointments, leaving our clinics open for our scanning appointments and in-person doctor appointments as needed. Our goal is to limit the traffic in the Clinics, keeping our staff and patients as safe as possible.

We are continuing our screening and safety practices in the Clinics. If you come for an appointment, we will ask you to wash your hands before and after every encounter, and we will support social distancing of at least 6 feet for all interactions except the scan. We will also be taking temperatures of all guests and asking anyone with a fever to leave immediately. We will be asking about recent travel and symptoms and may ask you to wear a mask based on your answers.

We understand this is a stressful and anxious time for everyone, and we want to be here for you now more than ever.

Getting through difficult times reminds us of our collective strength, and to be thankful for what truly matters. We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy.



How to Help Prevent Contracting the coronavirus – it’s a good idea to know the basics of preventive measures you can take. Here are 3 strategies that can shore up your immune system to help you fight off the virus in case you are exposed to it.

1. Lower your stress.

Freaking out about a potential pandemic raises stress levels, which actually hurts your immune system and makes you more vulnerable to infections. Techniques to soothe stress include laughter, diaphragmatic breathing, prayer or meditation, listening to calming music, warming your hands with your mind, hypnosis and guided imagery, and flooding your 5 senses with positivity.

2. Eat foods that boost the immune system.

Foods that are natural immunity boosters include onions, mushrooms (shiitake, white button, portabella), garlic, vitamin C-rich foods (oranges, berries, peppers, dark leafy green vegetables), vitamin D-rich foods (fatty fish, eggs, tuna), zinc-rich foods (oysters, beef, lamb, spinach, asparagus, sesame and pumpkin seeds), and selenium-rich foods (Brazil nuts, seeds, grass-fed meats).

3. Take nutraceuticals that boost immunity and stave off infections.

In general, everyone should start taking a multivitamin, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D whether you are healthy or not. Only about 25% of the U.S. population has healthy levels of vitamin D. Get yours checked and optimize your levels if necessary.

DR. AMEN’S 7 TYPES OF ADHD

December 9, 2016

BY EVE KESSLER, ESQ.

ADD, like many other conditions, is not just a single and simple disorder; therefore, treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution.

AT A GLANCE
Research by Dr. Daniel Amen shows that ADHD is not a single or simple condition • There are seven distinct types of ADHD, each one requiring a particular treatment • Amen’s studies show that when the type of ADHD is treated properly, the results are effective.

ADHD is not a one-size-fits-all diagnosis, and no one knows that better than Dr. Daniel G. Amen. Amen, a psychiatrist and brain imaging specialist, has been studying ADHD for more than two decades, and what he’s learned is challenging conventional wisdom about the condition that affects 5 to10% of the population. Some describe his findings as ground-breaking, while others are more skeptical. Either way, Amen has captured the attention of experts and parents alike.
