Grain Brain (Hardcover)
GRAIN BRAIN: THE SURPRISING TRUTH ABOUT WHEAT, CARBS, AND SUGAR--YOUR BRAIN'S SILENT KILLERS (Hardcover)
By David Perlmutter
Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, M.D., blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: Carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression and much more. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our "smart genes" through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs. With a revolutionary 4-week plan, "Grain Brain" teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.
"Dr. Perlmutter takes us on a detailed tour of the destructive effects that 'healthy whole grains' have on our brains. Modern wheat, in particular, is responsible for destroying more brains in this country than all the strokes, car accidents, and head trauma combined. Dr. Perlmutter makes a persuasive case for this wheat-free approach to preserve brain health and functioning, or to begin the process of reversal." – William Davis, M.D., author of "Wheat Belly"
"Dementia and many other brain diseases are not inevitable, nor are they genetic. They are directly and powerfully linked to a diet high in sugar and grains. Grain Brain not only proves this, it also gives you everything you need to know to protect your brain – or a loved one's – now." – Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom"
"Dr. Perlmutter's work has helped me better understand ways to maintain and improve brain function and to prevent and treat diseases of the nervous system that are not managed well by conventional medicine." – Andrew Weil, M.D., author of "Spontaneous Happiness" and "True Food"
"Dr. Perlmutter is the leading integrative medicine neurologist in North America today. His ability to fully integrate conventional medicine diagnosis and treatment with the latest innovations in nutritional and environmental medicine is phenomenal. As a teacher and clinician, he has fundamentally changed how physicians and patients think about neurological degeneration and, happily, regeneration." – Joseph Pizzorno, M.D., co-author of "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine"
