“The war for your health is won or lost between your ears, in the moment-by-moment decisions your brain makes every day. “
When your brain works right your decisions tend to be effective and add joy and energy to your life. When your brain is troubled, for whatever reason, you are much more likely to make bad decisions that steal your health, lead to your early destruction, and create trouble in future generations.
And make no mistake, you are in a war. Everywhere you go someone is trying to shove bad food down your throat that will kill you early; news corporations repeatedly pour fear and disaster images into your brain to boost their ratings; and tech companies create addictive gadgets that hook your attention and distract you from your loved ones. According to Microsoft, the human attention span is now 8 seconds; where a goldfish is 9. We are clearly going the wrong way with potential devastating consequences: Alzheimer’s disease is expected to quadruple between now and 2050; depression has risen 400% since 1987; half of Americans are pre-diabetic or diabetic; and two-thirds of us are overweight — all conditions that damage our brains.
The answer to these epidemic problems is not to see them as separate disorders, but rather as different expressions of the same unhealthy lifestyle driven by bad decisions that have exactly the same cure. The Brain Warrior’s Way is a scientifically-designed program to help you master your brain and body for the rest of your life. It is not a program to lose 10 pounds, even though you will and much more if needed. Rather it’s a way of life. The Brain Warrior’s Way is based on 7 simple principles, which spell MASTERY:
In a new branch of science, epigenetic studies have shown that your habits turn on or off certain genes that make illness and early death more or less likely in you, but also in your children and grandchildren. The war is not just about you; it is about generations of you. Along the way you will meet dozens of triumphant Brain Warriors who were once prisoners of war in their own bodies. Their stories will inspire and encourage you into a new way of living we call “The Brain Warrior’s Way.”
