Présentation de l'éditeur

According to researchers, the vast majority--a whopping 75-98 percent--of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about truly affects us both physically and emotionally. In fact, fear alone triggers more than 1,400 known physical and chemical responses in our bodies, activating more than thirty different hormones! Today our culture is undergoing an epidemic of toxic thoughts that, left unchecked, create ideal conditions for illnesses.

Supported by current scientific and medical research, Dr. Caroline Leaf gives readers a prescription for better health and wholeness through correct thinking patterns, declaring that we are not victims of our biology. She shares with readers the "switch" in our brains that enables us to live happier, healthier, more enjoyable lives where we achieve our goals, maintain our weight, and even become more intelligent. She shows us how to choose life, get our minds under control, and reap the benefits of a detoxed thought life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Detoxify your mind with Dr. Caroline Leaf 10 octobre 2013
Par The Book Blogger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In "Switch On Your Brain" * Dr. Leaf promises that in 21 days we can detoxify our minds. In the book, she makes a few great points that even while reading, helps begin the healing process before the 21-Day Detox plan. If you can get through the first 130+ pages describing the mind, brain, and quantum theories as it pertains to Scripture, then you will be fine. The 21 Day plan starts in the middle of the book. Just a fair warning.

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.

Not true.

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
-Stop milkshake-multitasking
-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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Detoxify Your Brain in 3 Weeks! 9 avril 2015
Par Xavier Hernandez - Publié sur Amazon.com

When I heard about this book, I thought that it was probably a bunch of bunk. I has been mired in depression for much of my adult life, and I’ve looked for many avenues to free myself from that depression. Nothing I’d found worked for long, but Switch On Your Brain seems to have done the trick. The book is an excellent primer on cognitive development and even quantum science as it relates to the brain. That is to say, there is no fluff in this book. It works off of proven scientific methods for changing your thought processes one step at a time. In the middle of the book, you’ll be asked to start Dr. Caroline Leaf’s 21-day brain detoxification regimen. I did, and I have never felt happier in my life.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Book!!! 8 novembre 2013

I love this book! Usually, I don't read a book all the way through. Books get tedious and too wordy and I lose interest and start "skimming". This is such an easy book to read and understand and has a very good message. I am reading it again, taking notes as I go. One of my all time favorites!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible scientifically proven guidance to change your thinking! 14 janvier 2014
Par David Dachtyl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is, bar none, the most exciting and revolutionary book I've ever read on how to change your thinking. And beyond that, it's not just scientifically accurate, it's Scripturally accurate too. As you read, it all begins to make sense and you wonder how we didn't see this before. Actually, it was all written in the Bible thousands of years ago, but we are just now gaining the technology to prove how it all works together, how God created the mind to be able to be renewed so we are not held captive by our past negative thoughts, emotions and experiences. Amazing read!!!

Dr Leaf (and she is not the only one) has successfully proven scientifically what the Bible has been saying for centuries - that what we ingest via the senses and what we ruminate on mentally is character forming and life altering. The process can bring transformation for better or worse. A "must read" and "must do" for a positive transformation.
