The Brain Trust Program was written by Dr. Larry McCleary, an expert in the field of brain health, to describe his “metabolic” approach to the brain. The book enables us to understand both the “thinking” and the “flesh and blood” aspects of mental function and how the two are related. Based on this unique perspective, Dr. Larry McCleary describes how simple lifestyle alterations and novel nutritional approaches can be utilized to improve common problems ranging from migraine headaches to menopausal symptoms and “brain fog.”
He also makes commonsense recommendations for keeping our gray matter safe and resistant to the dents and dings associated with the relentless progression of time. The adverse impact of sleep deprivation, stress, certain over-the-counter medications, illicit drugs, smoking and alcohol are discussed.
Suggested meal plans for a brain-healthy diet are also provided. The role dietary fat plays in many essential brain pathways is emphasized, and types of healthy fats that can improve focus and concentration are detailed. Dr. Larry McCleary even tells us what we need to know about the best nutritional supplements for sharp mental activity. And an entire section of the book is devoted to brain calisthenics.
Christiane Northrup, M. D., author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom: The Wisdom of Menopause says that “The Brain Trust Program provides everything you need to know to ensure optimal brain functioning for a lifetime!”
