The Microbiome Solution
A Radical New Way to Heal your Body From the Inside OuteBook - 2015
"The author of Gutbliss presents a practical program for boosting overall health. The microbiome -- those trillions of bacteria that live in our gut -- is a hot news topic. Synthesizing the latest findings, gastroenterologist Robynne Chutkan explains how the standard Western diet and lifestyle are starving our microbiome, depleting the "good bugs" that keep us healthy and encouraging overgrowth of exactly the wrong type of bacteria. The resulting imbalance makes us more prone to disease and obesity and negatively affects our metabolism, our hormones, our cravings, our immunity, and even our genes. Dr. Chutkan presents a three-level program for optimizing your gut bacteria for good health. Why hand-sanitizing gels are stripping our bodies of their natural protective systems. Essential prebiotics and probiotics. Recipes with ingredients that replenish the microbiome. The connection between the microbiome and the brain. She discusses stool transplants, the superfix for a severely troubled microbiome. A practical, effective plan for replenishing our microbiomes. Grow a good "gut garden" and enjoy a healthier, happier life. Robynne Chutkan is a gastrointestinal doctor, faculty member at Georgetown University, and frequent "Dr. Oz Show" guest expert"-- Provided by publisher.
