This video is a great synopsis of the best selling book, the Grain Brain, by renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD. In this book, Dr. Perlmutter blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. Not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
Not only that, he reveals why we, particularly our brains, NEED cholesterol, and that it’s not LDL that is bad but what happens to it on sugar, and how its the constant levels of sugar in our blood from our typical diets that causes this cholesterol to be damaging to our hearts and brains.
In the video 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.
As he answers Dr Mercola’s questions, 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.
GRAIN BRAIN is a #1 New York Times bestseller and a finalist for a 2013 Books for a Better Life award. The book has a lot more to do with ALL the ways we can prevent deterioration of not only the brain (leading to Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s), but much of the ‘age related’ deterioration of the rest of our body.
Though he covers Celiac and gluten sensitivities he also emphasizes how it is the carbs that are killing us, and how our health depends on getting enough calories from the good fats instead.
After you watch this video, you’ll understand how you can reduce your chances of getting Alzheimer’s, and gain brain mass as well as prevent other aging diseases while you look and feel better.
