Book Review: The Indoctrinated Brain

Author Michael Nehls, review by James Odell, OMD, ND LAc

Book cover of: The Indoctrinated Brain

Throughout the world, mental capacity is declining, especially among young people, while depression rates are rising dramatically. Meanwhile, one in forty men and women suffers from Alzheimer's, and the age of onset is falling rapidly. But the causes are not being eliminated, quite the opposite. Can this just be a coincidence? 

The Indoctrinated Brain introduces a largely unknown, powerful neurobiological mechanism whose externally induced dysfunction underlies these catastrophic developments. 

Michael Nehls, a medical doctor, and an internationally renowned molecular geneticist, lays out a shattering chain of circumstantial evidence indicating that behind these numerous negative influences lies a targeted, masterfully executed attack on our individuality. He points out how the raging wars against viruses, climate change, or over national borders are—more likely intended than not—fundamentally providing the platform for such an offensive against the human brain that is steadily changing our being and is aimed at depriving us of our ability to think for ourselves. But it is not too late. By exposing these brain-damaging processes and describing countermeasures that anyone can take, Nehls brings light and hope to this fateful chapter in human history. Nothing less will be decided than the question of whether our species can retain its humanity and its creative power or whether it will lose them irretrievably. If you want to truly know your enemy, this masterful unmasking of indoctrination is a must-read.

For his groundbreaking findings on the development, prevention, and therapy of Alzheimer's disease, PD. Dr. med. Michael Nehls was awarded the Hanse-Award for Molecular Psychiatry 2015 by the Clinic and Polyclinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the University Medical Center Rostock.​

In the same year, the discovery of a gene regulator essential for the development of the adaptive immune system, made during his post-doctoral work as a molecular geneticist, was honored as a "pillar of immunological research" by the renowned US Professional Association for Immunology.

About the Author

Michael Nehls is a physician and molecular geneticist specializing in immunology. As a basic researcher, he deciphered the genetic causes of dozens of hereditary diseases at German and international research institutions. Two of his discoveries were published in collaboration with two Nobel Prize winners. Another discovery of a key gene in immunity development was honored by the renowned American Association of Immunologists as a "Pillar of Immunology." For his pioneering findings on Alzheimer's disease development, prevention, and therapy, he was awarded the Hanse Prize for Molecular Psychiatry by the Rostock University Hospital.

Dr. Nehls was vice president of genome research at a US company for three years and chief scientific officer and CEO of a Munich-based biotechnology company for eight years. A scientific author talented in making complex topics understandable to a wide audience, he has written several bestsellers that have been translated into many languages. As a private lecturer, he delivers lectures at congresses and universities, attracting a wide audience.
