5 Steps of Neurocycle Can Clean Up Your Mental Mess – Dr. Caroline Leaf with Dave Asprey : 799

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest, Dr. Caroline Leaf, has been changing lives through her research into the human mind-brain connection for nearly four decades. “We’ve been sold such a lie that your brain controls you,” she says. 

The brain isn’t a generator, it’s a responder, so it has to be stimulated. We have the power to change the environment in which the brain thinks, feels and chooses. Dr. Leaf talks about how we can all use self-awareness to better understand and strengthen our minds. 

Her new book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess: 5 Simple, Scientifically Proven Steps to Reduce Anxiety, Stress and Toxic Thinking, shows you ways to use your mind to biohack your brain.

It may look different for everyone, but she believes wholeheartedly in our abilities to change through understanding our minds and fostering self-awareness. We can build up our brain health, resilience and strength. Dr. Leaf developed a five-stop process called Neurocycle to help us get there. “The five steps teach you how to grow a healthy thought,” she says.

Listen on to learn what these five steps are and how to put them into practice in your own life. 

“I am absolutely 100% convinced that if we focus more on the mind and understand that we have a level of control that we use online to change our mind, we can change our brain and our body function,” Dr. Leaf says.

As a communication pathologist, Dr. Leaf looks at people’s communication tendencies and the roots of those tendencies. She does so by tapping into the depths of the mind, exploring the non-conscious, conscious, and subconscious levels. During her career, she’s conducted research with people who have extreme brain damage, traumatic head injuries and many others, and directed them towards life-altering change.
