With a 10-day program, including a meal plan and 50 delicious recipes, BRAIN WASH is the key to cultivating a healthy, vibrant, meaningful life.

The message of Brain Wash couldn't be more urgent or timely. If everyone followed its advice, the world would be a happier and healthier place.

Quote: Catherine Price, founder of Screen/Life Balance, author

By showing us how to consciously rewire our brains for connection, compassion, and better decisions, Brain Wash provides a framework for reclaiming joy and health in the modern world.

Quote: Deepak Chopra, author of Metahuman

Brain Wash presents a road map for the relationship between how we think, feel, and behave and our lifestyle and environment. It is an artful and compelling manifesto on how to improve our mood, mind, and memory.

Quote: Jeffrey Bland, PhD, founder of the Institute for Functional Medicine

Brain Wash is an important book that tackles a colossal modern challenge: the quest to reclaim our health and happiness from a world that encourages us to overspend, overindulge, and underthink. David and Austin Perlmutter are consummate guides who share a multitude of approachable, concrete, and down-to-earth solutions. Highly recommended.

Quote: Adam Alter, author of Irresistible and Drunk Tank Pink

Brain Wash reveals how our day-to-day decisions are deeply influenced and actively manipulated by the modern world. But more importantly, it is a powerful manual that allows each of us to reclaim control of our choices and make better decisions that will pave the way for health and happiness. While we generally know what's best for ourselves, acting on this knowledge is a constant struggle. Brain Wash allows us to turn this knowledge into action. I highly recommend this innovative book.

Quote: Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics and author of The End ofMental Illness

In a world where most of us are feeling rushed, tired, and burned out, Brain Wash reveals how even small changes in your lifestyle choices can dramatically improve your day, your mood, and even your life.
