The war for your health is won or lost between your ears, in the 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 and lead to your early destruction.
And make no mistake, you are in a war. 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 that have exactly the same cure we call The Brain Warrior’s Way.
