"Dr. Berkson's SEXY BRAIN is a breakthrough book informing the public about a new threat from our toxic environment: environmental castration. Just as we are seeing diseases like type-2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and obesity in our younger adults, conditions that historically were seen only in seniors, we have to now add hormonal imbalance and sexual dysfunction to this list. This book takes our awareness of the effects of our toxic planet to a new level."
--Mark Hyman, MD, Author of best-selling book, Eat Fat, Get Thin
“This important book is based on Dr. Devaki Lindsey Berkson’s in-depth study of the science behind sexuality, gender expression, and brain power. It’s an engaging read and is sure to be controversial.”
--Patricia Johnson & Mark Michaels, Co-authors: Partners in Passion, Great Sex Made Simple: Tantric Tips to Deepen Intimacy & Heighten Pleasure, and The Essence of Tantric Sexuality

“I couldn’t put this book down. SEXY BRAIN is a must read for anyone searching for a healthier lifestyle. Dr. Berkson writes in a simple yet elegant style. It is impossible for anyone to reach their optimal health or achieve rewarding sex without hormonal balance. Dr. Berkson’s book provides all the information needed to understand why hormonal balancing and an active sex life are so important.”
--David Brownstein, M.D., Author of 12 books, including The Miracle of Natural Hormones and Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health Newsletter
“Dr. Berkson’s latest book SEXY BRAIN is her newest masterpiece to add to her impressive list of books. As always, Dr. Berkson picks a topic of current interest, researches it to the finest detail and then compiles her findings in a logical, scientific, poetic, and easy-to-read format. Compared to other books on the topic, which seem to be little more than R-rated fiction, SEXY BRAIN takes the reader through a scientifically-backed journey into the human brain’s role in physical attraction, emotional involvement, and the pleasures of intimacy. And the benefits. Even as a gynecologist, I had no idea that intimacy and lovemaking were so brain protective! This is a must read for any professional who counsels patients or anyone who simply wants to get more out of intimacy and the physical pleasures that life has to offer.”
--Jack Monaco, M.D., Nashville, TN, Gynecologist and Professor of Functional Medicine

--Bee Zollo, Hospice RN, Santa Fe, NM
“This work is BRILLIANT. Berkson talking about the gut as it relates to love and sex is really something! I did not know about the connection between testosterone and lungs. You make leaps and jumps that are really fresh, new, and exciting. It is all done with a lot of love—and to help people love each other. Your work is really inspired. I don’t want to take hormone replacement myself, but it doesn’t matter. There is so much else to grab onto.”
--Judith Fein, author of Life is a Trip, The Spoon from Minkowitz, Huffington Post and Psychology Today Blogger, & Ted Talk presenter

All men and women wanting successful relationships and vibrant brain health should read this book.”
--Brenda Johnson, Grateful Homemaker, Tulsa, OK

--Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS, Award Winning New York Times bestselling author of The New Fat Flush Plan

Sexy Brain is amazing! Lots of valuable information for non-medical folks like me and also, details down the the molecular level for medical professionals. I look forward to using this book to enhance my life today and improve my life in the future. The table of contents and index are very useful. I highly recommend this book to my friends and family.
Imagine getting scientific evidence that we need frequent and fabulous sex!
Or, how to truly please our partner when we are wired so differently.
Learn about Oxytocin, an important hormone that most people haven’t even heard about, one that has many functions. Studies show that participants given Oxytocin have a better experience of sex and orgasm.
The sad truth is most doctors (and patients) aren’t comfortable talking about sex. (When was the last time your doctor asked if you’re doing OK in bed?) Even if you work up the nerve to bring up the subject, they are likely to simply write you a prescription (mentioning the side effects to watch out for) and send you on your way… without really exploring your options (some of which are much better for your overall health and vitality).
And what if you want to ward off problems as you age? It’s never too soon for prevention.
“Sexy Brain” has the answers. This book opened my eyes to the larger picture of sex - why intimacy is truly good for our health, practical tips in making love, and how to keep healthy (or restore) our sex hormone receptors. Have you ever found a sex book like this?
