Take Control Of Your Brain

Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of digital media. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality comes at a steep cost: left unchecked, it poses serious risks to our physical and mental health, relationships, and even the ability to control our thoughts.

Based on the latest science, the book reveals the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us, and presents the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions, strengthen bonds with others, and develop healthier habits. With an empowering 10-day program, including a meal plan and 40 delicious recipes, Brain Wash is the key to cultivating a healthy, vibrant, meaningful life.

Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness is co-authored by best-selling author David Perlmutter, MD and Austin Perlmutter, MD.
