9 Steps to a Modern Brain


Deep within the bioenergetic blueprint of your brain lives a vast reservoir of infinite potential. When your mind is clear and focused it becomes a major source of joy, love, abundance, passion, presence and power. One of the biggest obstacles keeping us from this potential is the stress of living in a modern, industrialized world. By understanding the 9 Steps to a Perfect Brain you will discover the keys to unlocking your brain’s infinite potential, how to take control of your own health and wellbeing, and learn how to move through the world with grace, power and ease.



Stress-related illness is the number one killer in today’s world. And I’m not just talking about the diseases that most people think of when the topic of brain health comes up such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, ADHD, Parkinson’s, anxiety and depression. I’m also speaking to the more common things that many of us experience on a daily basis:


  • Brain fog

  • Low energy

  • Poor focus

  • Memory slips

  • Irritability

  • Chronic pain

  • Lack of motivation

  • Restlessness

  • The list goes on

  • And on!


All of these symptoms can be traced to an underlying imbalance and deficit in the life force energy that powers your brain. What causes this energy to be depleted? Well, many things do. But the biggest of them all boils down to one word: STRESS. And I don’t just mean mental or emotional stress because stress actually comes in many different forms as a byproduct of the modern, industrialized world we live in: 


  • Highly processed foods

  • Toxins in our air and water supply

  • Fast-paced, sedentary lifestyles

  • Medications

  • Unsatisfying relationships

  • Overly demanding schedules and jobs

  • Poor sleep, not enough rest


Regardless of how stress shows up in our lives the end result is the same – a break in the flow of the life force energy that powers your brain. But it’s not stress that actually kills us. It’s our brain’s overreaction to stress. When we’re faced with a stressor – whether it be bad news, a sugar-laden cupcake or not enough sleep – our adrenal glands kick in and flood our brains and bodies with cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that’s needed for survival but when found in excess exerts a profoundly destructive force on our brains, immune cells and endocrine systems. The hope then lies in the fact that how we perceive the world completely changes how we respond to stress and that we have the power to transform our state of mind through our awareness, intention, thoughts, feelings and actions. We have the ability to strengthen our resiliency against stress and to lessen the life-zapping pull of cortisol on our brains and bodies.


After many years of study and thousands of hours of research exploring the best of what Eastern and Western medicine have to offer us I’ve put together a step-by-step, science-based heart-felt approach to help you unleash the infinite potential hidden within the genetic blueprint of your brain. I’ve used this approach on myself as well as with thousands of patients and clients throughout the years with great success. These are the 9 Steps to a Perfect Brain. By understanding these steps, you will harness the power of neuroplasticity – your brain’s ability to learn and grow through your choices and life experiences – and bolster your brains resiliency against stress so you can move through the modern world with grace, power and ease. Now without further ado, here are the 9 Steps to a Perfect Brain:
