Brain Wash Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness.
Fight back against a modern culture that is rewiring our brains and damaging our health with this practical, doctor-approved plan for healing that includes a ten-day boot camp and forty delicious recipes.
Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of digital media. We can buy goods and services for rapid delivery with our fingertips or voice commands. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our connections to others, and even to the world at large.
Brain Wash builds from a simple premise: Our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviors that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone, and overweight than ever before.
Based on the latest science, the book identifies the mental hijacking that undermines every one of us and presents the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions, strengthen bonds with others, and develop healthier habits. Featuring a 10-day Bootcamp program, including a meal plan and 40 delicious original recipes, Brain Wash is the key to cultivating a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

- An incredibly informative look at how modern living has impacted our brain, relationships, happiness, and so much more. Few ebooks on this subject matter have tackled this subject from this position of expertise before, and this book has been a long time coming. An important read.
- My wife and I laid eyes on this ebook Brain Wash while walking through a bookstore and I knew we had to read it. We had been discussing changing mindsets and cleaner living and Brain Wash lays out a plan for accomplishing that and reasons why it is important. It is a pretty fast read as a good deal of the ebook Brain Wash are recipes for accomplishing the healthy eating aspect of this ebook. The ebook itself is pretty good and lays out many of the mistakes we as humans are making in our daily habits and ways we can fix it. I particularly liked the various examples and scientific studies that are in the book, but I did find certain parts of the book repetitive. Overall, I think this is an interesting read for science nerds or as a self-help guide for improving your life.
