In this new edition of Diet Rehab, best-selling author and brain-health expert, Dr. Mike Dow, shows how sugar effects brain chemistry, and provides new research on dieting and hypnosis.
What makes a healthy brain? The answer is simpler than you think.
In Diet Rehab, Dr. Mike Dow shared a simple, yet powerful plan to help readers kick their food addictions. Since then, Dr. Dow has gone on to become a New York Times best-selling author, and has continued to research and publish books extensively on improving brain health. Over the past five years, he’s gathered even more data that shows how our standard American diet is harming our brains and our bodies–and what we can do about it. In 2015, the first human study linking the blood-sugar spiking Western diet and a smaller hippocampus was published. There is now scientific proof that sugar is shrinking the brain!
With The Sugar Brain Fix, Dr. Dow takes a closer look at how sugar effects brain chemistry, and the ways we can fix it. The book features cutting-edge research and Dr. Dow’s modified Mediterranean diet–the best diet for brain health and wellness.
The Sugar Brain Fix will also incorporate research about hypnosis, and other activities to naturally boost brain health.
At its core, The Sugar Brain Fix is a cognitive behavioral guide for boosting serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain with a new-and-improved diet and natural mind-set shifts, while improving overall health. The diet has a clinically proven, 3-prong approach: 1) eliminate sugar, 2) boost Mediterranean-diet-friendly fats, 3) increase probiotics.
