"BRAINCHANGE" reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, M.D., blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

“If you could make just three simple changes in your life to prevent, or even reverse, memory loss and other brain disorders, wouldn’t you?”Dr. David Perlmutter

His New York Times #1 best-selling book, "Grain Brain," is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions.

The vast majority of us don’t realize that our seemingly “healthy” daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. "BRAINCHANGE" shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It’s in the food you eat.

Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today—in multi-grain breads, whole fruits, nutritional supplements, and even brand name pharmaceuticals. In "BRAINCHANGE," he shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices.

Dr. Perlmutter is the only doctor in the country who is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, making him uniquely suited to write this book and make this public television program.

An in-demand expert for nationally syndicated radio and television programs, he has appeared on 20/20, CNN, DR. OZ, FOX NEWS, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, THE TODAY SHOW, and OPRAH, among many outlets. Dr. Perlmutter also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.
