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
"[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)

I have recommended this book already to several clients and friends.
The information was easy to absorb, easy to understand, and easy to apply.
It sure helped me change a few things in my diet.
I loved and agree with everything except the part about not using soap on your skin. I work with the skin and there are plenty of very clean, organically produced, chemical free cleansers that will not harm the skins natural protectant layer (the sebum layer produced by the skin). It is essential to remove free radicals and pollutants that settle on the skin every day and can be absorbed into the body (since your skin absorbs 60% of what you put on it). Other than that this book is amazing!
