How to Detox Your Brain for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships, and Lasting Happiness

With Dr. Austin Perlmutter
& Dr. David Perlmutter

Our modern day 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.

Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, I’m joined by my good friends Drs. David and Austin Perlmutter to talk about how our health, our relationships, and even our thinking has been damaged by our modern culture. We discuss how the modern world creates structural and functional alterations to our brains, and how this increases our poor choices. We also talk about how exercise rewires and restructures the brain for better functioning, the health benefits of nature, and how to start to incorporate more nature into our lives.
