En este libro revolucionario, que conquistó rápidamente el primer puesto de todas las listas de los más vendidos en Estados Unidos, el renombrado neurólogo David Perlmutter destapa un tema que ha estado enterrado en la literatura médica por demasiado tiempo: los carbohidratos están destruyendo nuestro cerebro. Y no sólo los carbohidratos malos: también los carbohidratos saludables, como los granos enteros, pueden causar demencia, ansiedad, dolores de cabeza crónicos, depresión y mucho más. El doctor Perlmutter explica qué pasa cuando el cerebro encuentra ingredientes comunes tanto en el pan de cada día como en el plato de frutas, por qué el cerebro se alimenta de la grasa y del colesterol, y cómo podemos estimular el crecimiento de nuevas neuronas a cualquier edad. También nos ofrece una Mirada profunda sobre cómo podemos modificar nuestros genes por medio de elecciones precisas a la hora de comer y de cambios específicos en nuestro estilo de vida, mostrándonos así como sanar de aquellos padecimientos a los que más tememos sin necesidad de medicamentos. Con un revolucionario plan de 30 días, Cerebro de pan nos ensena como reprogramar nuestro destino genético para gozar de una vida plena. "El doctor Perlmutter nos lleva de la mano por un tour detallado sobre los efectos destructivos que los 'carbohidratos complejos y saludables' tienen en nuestro cerebro. El trigo en la actualidad, en especial, es responsable de la destrucción de mas cerebros en el mundo que todos los derrames cerebrales, los accidentes automovilísticos y los traumas neurológicos combinados. El doctor Perlmutter aboga convincentemente por una vida libre de trigo para preservar la salud cerebro y revertir el daño".William Davis, autor de Wheat Belly

Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten: Raise IQ Points by Up to 30 Points and Turn on Your Child's Smart Genes Pointsby Carol Colman David Perlmutter
Between birth and age five, your child has up to thirty IQ points at stake. Scientists now know that the human brain is undergoing a constant and dramatic transformation in the first years of life. During this peak time of development, every activity and experience leaves an indelible mark on your baby's brain, for better or worse. The right kind of stimulation and nutrition will create connections in the brain that promote intelligence and raise IQ. The wrong kinds of activities and foods can stifle intellectual development, destroy brain cells, and leave your child more vulnerable to learning or behavior problems down the road. So, what can you do during the first five years to ensure that your child is primed to excel? The good news is that raising a smarter child is easier than you think. It doesn't require making an investment in expensive equipment or high priced tutors. It's as simple as playing the right games, serving the right foods, and maintaining a brain-enhancing environment in your home by eliminating common household toxins. In Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten by Dr. David Perlmutter, you'll learn easy and highly effective strategies that can vastly improve your child's brain power and reduce his or her chances of developing ADD and ADHD. For example, you can: *Stimulate Memory:Changing a component on the over-the-crib mobile every week makes the baby compare what was there before to what's there now, reinforcing memory pathways in the brain that are critical for learning. *Spread out those shots: Schedule more frequent trips to the pediatrician for vaccinations, so that fewer shots are administered at once. Flooding the immune system with a cocktail of different vaccines can damage the nervous system. *Get rid of toxins:Protecting a child from neurotoxins found in foods, toys and even baby bottles can help preserve precious IQ points. Dr. Perlmutter provides a scientifically backed food and supplement plan for children and nursing mothers and details the many brain-building activities that you can do with your child. In addition, he reveals the numerous toys and household products that contain harmful, brain-damaging toxins and shows how to identify and combat common childhood problems like ADD and food allergies that may affect your child's development. Your job over the first five years is to help your child build the best brain possible. With Dr. Perlmutter's help, you can mine the countless opportunities you have each day to make your child smarter, happier and better prepared to excel.
