Book Review: This Is Your Brain In Love by Dr. Earl Henslin

May 30, 2010 at 8:20 am | Posted in Books | 1 Comment

I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Earl Henslin, on our radio show “Kingdom Highlights”, for his new book, “This Is Your Brain In Love” the sequel to his groundbreaking book, “This Is Your Brain On Joy” published by Thomas Nelson.

For those of you who do not know Dr. Henslin is a licensed marriage and family therapist who has been integrating brain imaging into the treatment of psychological, physical and spiritual problems in his counseling practice.  If you have a problem with your brain it will manifest itself in various forms, one of which is the love life.  As the book tells us the brain is the biggest sexual organ in the body.  Dr. Henslin tells us that the hormones created while we are in first love are equal to someone being on cocaine-without the disastrous side effects.  Then when that “high” wears off the couple feel that they have fallen out of love while this is not so.  The body simply cannot maintain that euphoria for a long time nor would we want it to.

Dr. Henslin goes into detailed methods to improve the five imbalances common in marriages.  With him we learn how to “focus the scattered lover”, “relax the over-focused lover”, “cheer the blue mood lover”, “calm the agitated lover”, and “soothe the anxious lover”.  If you feel you might fall into one of those categories then all is well there is a way these can be corrected and not always with drugs or surgery but with food changes and vitamins.

If you are married, have been married, have problems in your marriage, want to be married then this book if for you.  If you have friends that fall into any of those categories then this book is for them and you should give it as a gift, they will thank you for it forever.  It is time we learned how we operate and Dr. Henslin give us the right tools to help us.  This book is a keeper!
