Publisher's Summary

In The Microbiome Solution, Dr. Robynne Chutkan, a preeminent gastroenterologist, explains how the standard Western diet and our super-sanitized lifestyles are starving our microbiomes, depleting the "good bugs" that are crucial for keeping us healthy, and encouraging overgrowth of exactly the wrong types of bacteria, which can leave us vulnerable to a host of autoimmune and chronic health conditions. Here, she shares her powerful program of simple yet effective lifestyle and diet changes to help you recover and reverse the damage, along with practical advice throughout, including:

An overview of the "modern microbial disrupters" that are stripping our bodies of their natural protective systems
Delicious, nourishing recipes that actually encourage the growth of good bacteria
A list of important questions to ask your doctor if you have been prescribed an antibiotic
A guide to choosing the right probiotics and supplements
Critical information on how to prevent and recover from health conditions like eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's disease, colitis, IBS, and more


What the Critics Say

"[A] thoughtful approach to health and wellness that's well worth the time of readers able and willing to research and evaluate Chutkan's many claims for themselves." (Publishers Weekly)

This is comprehensive, cutting edge, easily digestible (pun intended), even humorous at times. I finished the book in one sitting because I just couldn't put it down. If you have health issues; especially many of those for which there is little help or hope available, you owe it to yourself to get this book. If you don't have health issues you need this information to ensure that you remain healthy.
