If you’ve ever wondered why you keep recreating the same problems over and over again in your life, you will find the answer in “The Evolutionary Glitch.” The author, Albert Garoli, MD, has an interesting and varied background in specialties that include Internal Medicine, Ayurvedic traditional medicine, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Acupuncture, Electro-acupuncture, Phytopharmacology and Homotoxicology. Through his studies he developed a theory that humans have developed a “glitch” in our neural network. He states that this “glitch,” “…is at the root of human physical and mental suffering.”
Negative conditioning has caused many of us to develop a persona that leads us into creating negative patterns by which we live our lives. These personas are separated into six categories: The Sanguine Persona; the Lymphatic Persona; the Nervous Persona, the Melancholic Persona; the Bilious Persona and the Phlegmatic Persona. By exploring our conditioned neural networks, we can identify which persona we have embedded in ourselves, and use the techniques offered to overcome the glitches. In doing so, we will be able to live the life that we were meant to live, not the faulty one which find ourselves stuck in.
I found “The Evolutionary Glitch” to be absolutely fascinating. It is written in a manner that combines science with philosophy. Rather than calling it a “self-help” type of book, Dr. Garoli refers to it as “self-challenging.” The process of identifying our personas so that we can overcome our glitches is going to be challenging, because our personas do not necessarily want to change. Even identifying which persona we have takes some in-depth thought and discovery. However, the idea that I can get past those, “Why do I keep doing this, or thinking this way,” thoughts is incredibly appealing and makes me realize that it will be well worth the effort required so that I can live the life that I was meant to live, instead of the one that I find myself stuck in.

|“The Evoluntary Glitch: Rise Above the Root of Your Problems” by Dr. Albert Garoli is a self-help book to help you learn how to stop the negative patterns and how to find the real you. Dr. Garoli has an extensive background including practicing and teaching of Traditional Chinese and Oriental Medicines, Ayurvedic medicine, Acupuncture, Biophysics and more. From his extensive research in biological learning models, Dr. Garoli believes that many of our behavioral issues can be traced back to an evolutionary glitch that allows traumas in our lives to manifest in a Persona that actually is harmful. According to Dr. Garoli, “rejection causes compromise, which leads to the development of a Persona.” His book, “The Evolutionary Glitch,” helps the reader to identify their particular Persona and gives them exercises that will help purge the Persona and allow the person to live a fuller and happier life.
Through Dr. Garoli’s writings, it is clear that he definitely knows what he is talking about. Some of the areas he covers are:
It All Stems from Your Attitude
How We Become What We Are Not
The Brain Trap
This is not a book that is meant to be read front to back in one sitting. I tried that when I first started reading and it soon became overwhelming. Taking it a chapter at a time really helped. I definitely found Dr. Garoli’s research interesting and I liked how he presented his information, starting with the first chapter where he describes your “stance,” which is basically figuring out where you are in life regarding your where you live, what activities you participate in, your family and friend relationships, your employment, and your home and community. I don’t know if this book was what I was hoping it would be. It did seem overwhelming at times and does require a leap of faith. I have no doubt that those who follow this will end up feeling different about themselves, most likely feeling better. Perhaps I will go back to it in the future and give it another go.
