Summary

A neuroscientist’s groundbreaking, science-driven plan for revitalizing, nourishing and rejuvenating your most essential asset - your brain.

Your brain is the most essential organ in your body. The brain and spinal cord are intimately connected to every bodily system and organ, so when it is balanced everything in your body and mind will function more efficiently. It’s vitally important to take proactive steps now, or you risk losing everything, including your ability to think clearly, be creative, remember details, solve problems and retain your memory.

In Biohack Your Brain, leading neuroscientist Dr. Kristen Willeumier reveals how you can change your brain by making simple and easy modifications to your lifestyle. Combining clinical experience with revolutionary science, she details how biohacking your brain can boost your cognitive performance and so much more.

Dr. Willeumier’s essential guidebook shows you the most effective techniques to prevent memory loss and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease - and even how to overcome negative thoughts and stress. Through research and case studies, you’ll learn how to upgrade your nutritional choices along with the effective use of supplements, brain games, and physical activity to overcome cognitive damage, whether it’s from previous injuries, such as a concussion or a bad fall or from the effects of living in modern day times.

Dr. Willeumier shares her own story alongside those from the NFL players and other clients she has worked with to help you leverage the latest research to find personal solutions. Biohack Your Brain teaches you how to take better care of your brain, and also how to release excess weight, enhance your memory, increase your energy and vitality in order to create the best health and life possible.    

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Misleading Title - in one reader's opinion

So while biohacking might be a bit of a vague term, it likely doesn't bring to mind the type of advice you'll get from this book.

The author spends a bit of time establishing their credentials at the beginning then essentially just tells you to improve your brain by drinking water, getting enough sleep, eating green stuff, super positive.

Dr Willeumier may be a brilliant neuroscientist, but they certainly didn't need to be to write this pamphlet of basic health advice.

This book might be worth reading if you're looking for slightly more neurological context on why the basic health advice you'd get from any doctor is worth following.

I recommend to pass on this one.

I didn't really care for the narrator and I struggled to complete this audible book. I also found the information to be contradicting, such as praising a client that would sit for 8 hours doing puzzles but then also state that being sedentary is not good for your brain. In one section of the book she recommended massage therapy and referred to massage therapists as a "masseuse" A masseuse is not a positive or respectful term for the professionals that are licensed in massage therapy. Also if you are getting a $25 massage session as she states she does, more than likely they are not licensed as they should be. I did find some helpful information along the way such as the supplement information and the personal stories were inspiring.

Brain hacked!

This book has been so helpful in helping me rewire my thoughts and behaviors. My anxiety has drastically lowered and hoping to share many of these great tips with my father.

Spot On! A must have for every bookshelf.

I listened to this book and I also bought the hard copy of the book. Dr. Kristen is a wealth of information and if you want to reclaim your brain, and take control of your health, I would buy both the hard copy and the audio version. Listen in the car or while you exercise. Go back and use the hard copy to make sure you have easy access to her recommendations. As a nutritionist, I can tell you that she does not miss a beat. Most important is that Dr. Kristen has real world experience and she makes health very easy to understand.
