By Dr David Perlmutter, FACN & Alberto Villoldo, PhDPower Up Your Brain

This book brings together the work of an eminent neuroscientist and the work of a Shaman, in the common ground of effecting changes within the functions of the brain in order to experience good health, and to move towards the experience of enlightenment.

There is, therefore, a lot of “science” in the book, some of which is very detailed and requires considerable focus from the brain of the reader in order to follow it.  If you can do so, you will learn much about the workings of the brain at a molecular level, including some ground-breaking work in the treatment of various conditions.

The greater part of the book covers David’s work, with occasional comments by Alberto, but later we have a smaller, but very powerful, section written by Alberto, introducing some Shamanic approaches.  This includes some exercises and processes we can practise ourselves.  These can be used for much more than working on the brain, and are well worth exploring.

The final section of the book covers the “Power Up Your Brain” Programme”.  This begins with a five week intensive schedule (details included in the book) which combine diet, supplements and Shamanic exercises to enhance and improve the function of your brain.

Having battled my way through the science, enjoyed the shamanic connection, and been interested by the Power Up Programme; my reward came in a short anecdote related by Alberto at the end of the book.  The situation concerned a medical student friend of his, and made a profound impression on me.  For me, this was the Gift within this book, but with such a wealth of information between its pages, I am sure that there will be many Gifts in it for others.
