The first point I learned is that the brain is different from the mind. I knew this from previous philosophy classes, but Dr. Leaf assures us that there is a critical difference. Before, many doctors and scientists taught that the brain is physical and pre-programmed and therefore a person is stuck in the depression or illness and need meds all the time.
With detoxing, you can get your healthy brain cells back and what is really cool is each chapter has Scripture for thought pertaining to the mind and encourages you on your "detoxing" journey.
Second, our brain is neuroplastic-"meaning it can change and grow"(14). If our brains can change and grow, then we have be mindful of our thoughts. What are we allowing in?
We can not control outside circumstances, but we can control our reaction to it. Toxic thoughts like: doubt, unbelief, fear, anger- changes our brain and it causes us to become something that will require an act of God for healing. That is where detoxing comes in.
Another powerful point, Dr. Leaf makes is your parents or your past does not make you who you are. This is predisposition, not destiny. Do not make genetics your god. You can live a long healthy life full of joy. And her book is here to help.
There are so many important facts listed in this book and what becomes repetitive is actually what you'll need to remember as you go through the detox plan:
-Mind controls matter
-Choice and your multiple-perspective advantage
-Your choices change your brain
-Catch those thoughts
-Entering into directed rest
-Thinking, God, and the quantum physics brain
-The science of thought
The very first half of the book was powerful to read and coupled with sound biblical wisdom, you can get your life back just from the beginning of the book. After scanning through the 21 Day Detox plan, I know that I would buy this book for myself.

I’ve also used 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy in tandem with Switch On Your Brain. Written by Alvin Huang and Chris D’Cruz, 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy is a treatise on all the negative thoughts and behaviors that you just need to get rid of. Many of our negative self-thoughts come from wanting to please others, but it’s important to realize that you have to give that stuff up. You have to give up wanting everyone to like you. In my case, I was always obsessed with gaining the approval of everyone. I thought if everyone liked me, then maybe I’d be happy. Of course, we know that there is no such thing a universal approval from everyone.
If you’re looking for a neuroscience-based program to really detoxify your brain, then you can’t beat Switch On Your Brain. It’s the best way to flush out all those negative thoughts and hindrances from your psyche. 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy is also a great book for learning how to excise negative self-thoughts from your life. I would say that both of these books have helped me dig my way out of my depression. It wasn’t easy, but it has been well worth it. I’m glad I was able to change my brain and let go of all the hindrances to my progress.
