Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain.

It's not just unhealthy carbs that are doing the damage: 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 also offers an in-depth look at how you can take control of your 'smart genes' through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy your most feared maladies without drugs.

Including a revolutionary 30-day plan to help you cut grains from your diet, Grain Brain will show you how you can reprogram your genetic destiny for the better.

      I love this book! It will blow your mind!
      Very informative and all backed up with evidence.
      I've already started changing things about my lifestyle and feeling better for it, I can't wait to get started on the 4week program. I'm even thinking of purchasing the cook book.
      I just wish I had this book a few years ago before my mother died of a brain tumour and it may have prolonged her life a bit.

        What I really appreciate about book are the connections made between gluten and hormones. Cortisol, especially. Also, if you're wanting to know more about treating your brain better, this book touches on " Brain Health", extraordinary! Great read. I actually carry this book in my handbag still.

          This was my 2nd copy for a relative as I thoroughly enjoyed it myself. I was astounded, shocked and in some cases horrified at how misled we have been. Common misconceptions about what's considered "bad food", myths of whats good results debunked, this book turned my misconceptions upside down. Full of great statistical data brought out in an entertaining and engaging way, it made it a very inspiring read. A definite call to action to protect our brains, not just our bodies from 1st world induced debilitation and degeneration.

                  This book is a bit of a game changer. Highly recommend. - Lorraine Pascale

                  Dr Perlmutter outlines an innovative approach to our most fragile organ, the brain. He is an absolute leader in the use of alternative and conventional approaches in the treatment of neurologic disorders - Dr Mehmet Oz

                  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 - Dr William Davis, author of Wheat Belly

                  If you want to boost your brain power, keep your memory, and lift your mood and energy, as well as heal from a host of other common complaints, Dr Perlmutter is your guide. This is the definitive instruction book for the care and feeding of your brain! - Dr Mark Hyman, author of The Blood Sugar Solution

                  A provocative, eye-opening scientific account of how diet profoundly influences nerve health and brain function. Dr Perlmutter outlines a blueprint for optimal health and a more resilient brain through proper nutrition and lifestyle. Grain Brain is a must-read! - Dr Gerard E. Mullin, author of The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut
