In our milestone Episode 100, we have the pleasure to meet up again with Dr. David Perlmutter to talk with him about his recent book, Brain Wash. Dr. Perlmutter co-authored the book with his son and fellow physician, Dr. Austin Perlmutter. We discuss the impact of today’s cultural and technological norms and how they can negatively impact our brain and our habits. While people often refer to detoxifying their bodies through nutritional interventions, what Dr. Perlmutter is proposing is detoxifying our brains by making better choices around technology, social interaction, physical fitness, sleep and nutrition. By essentially undertaking a ‘Brain Wash’, we can address multiple issues around both physical and mental health. The book outlines a 10-day plan that includes meal plans and recipes to assist in the cultivation of a healthy, vibrant and meaningful life.
