The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, M.D. and Dr. Caroline Leaf

The world today has certainly become much more chaotic than we’d anticipated. As a result, it might be difficult to avoid toxic threatening ideas and downstream manifestations like depression or anxiety. As our guest today makes obvious, we do not have to stay into this mental mess as if it’s just our “new normal.” There’s hope and there’s help open to us, and the direction to healthier ideas and much more happiness may really be shorter than we believe.

Today on the program we’ll spend more time with my close friend Dr. Caroline Leaf, author from the new book Clearing Up Your Mental Mess – Five Simple, Scientifically Proven Steps to Reducing Anxiety, Stress, and Toxic Thinking (
