Publisher's Summary

A new epidemic is sweeping the country. Some people call it ADHD, scatter brain, or brain fog. Some simply say they just don't feel like themselves - and haven't for a long time. People are thinking and feeling worse than ever. Why? Because our brains are not getting the support they need to produce the essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, and inspired. In fact if you look at the way most of us live, it's almost as though we've chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry.

Fortunately there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is a three-week program designed to help you naturally restore three of your brain's most crucial chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these three brain chemicals will, in turn, enable the rest of your brain's chemistry to reach optimal levels. You will find yourself thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. You will also find yourself feeling more optimistic, calm, energized, connected, and inspired. The good news is that this is easier than you think. Instead of trying to ambitiously overhaul one aspect of your life entirely with some difficult-to-maintain resolution, begin by making small and achievable changes in many different areas of your life.

"If I've learned one thing from the thousands of people I've treated, it's that you have to take the whole person into account if you want to think and feel better." (Dr. Mike Dow)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Excellent Information

If you plan to follow the advise in this book, you will want a written copy. If you just want the information, this is an excellent source.

Too many inconsistencies...

I love health books like this, and at first, it seemed pretty great. Wonderfully narrated, written with easy-to-understand explanations, and (mostly) scientifically sound. Even though I know most of the content discussed in this book, I enjoy listening to anything that helps motivate me to take better care of my body and my brain. But right from the get-go there were inconsistencies that left me scratching my head. In one sentence, the author tells us that we shouldn't eat albacore tuna because of the high mercury content, and that a good/easy rule of thumb is to stay away from farmed fish and go primarily with wild-caught. But then when he begins listing out the top fish that we should always be incorporating into our diets on a regular basis, that list contains albacore tuna (at the top of the list) and several farmed fish. That left me scratching my head and feeling uncertain about the message of this book. Granted, it's a small piece of it, but when that red flag goes up and flashing lights cause me to pause in confusion, I have a hard time getting back into it. The book is excellent for someone who is unfamiliar with the latest studies about good fats, low glycemic foods and eating healthy for gut and brain health. But if you've already got a fair amount of knowledge under your belt and are looking for some in-depth, solid information based on scientific studies and unquestionable research, this probably isn't the book for you.

Interesting Recipes

Covers the subject of healthy eating and living in a consumable format. Includes interesting recipes.

May seem like a stats book at times i.e. x % of this and y % of that, but overall contains a lot of helpful information for daily changes.

Worth reading / listening.

A wast of time

I couldn’t even finish the third chapter with the author repeating the same four points. There are better books then this.

Boring and annoying

I’m over 90 minutes in. Every example is obvious - “hey, don’t drink 10 diet Cokes and very day! That’s bad for you!”

I have no idea why he needs 15 chapters to explain what the book is about. I live here on earth; I am well aware that sugar is a huge problem. I know. But I eat little sugar. So shut up about it already.

Doesn't work in audio format

This book spends several hours building up to a 3 week, day by day eating plan, which promises to help you clear your brain fog. When it eventually gets there, the chapter is 70+ minutes of repetition, which you're unlikely to remember in one go. To reference the plan you'll either need to save many bookmarks in the chapter, or write/type out the information. Either way it will take you some time. The book comes with a pdf download, in which the plan could have been included. Whatever the reason for not doing this, it was a big oversight.

The information in this book is interesting, although the author cites a lot of studies, again none of which can be referenced in audio format without killing the flow of the book.

This is possibly the only one of my 200 audio books that doesn't work in this format. Save your money and buy the paper or e - version.

Couldnt get over some of the statements

Basically advocating sufficient sleep and low sugar diet. His view on T3DM is not in keeping with diabetes uk, but I concede has been used. Not really a practical plan

Good book as reminder of a lot of things .

I did like this book but will not say it is my favourite. I like it mostly because it did remind me about pieces that are important this days .

What I did not like is last two chapters , they should be added as part of the pdf rather than read .
