Publisher's Summary

The author of Gutbliss and one of today's preeminent gastroenterologists distils the latest research on the microbiome into a practical program for boosting overall health.

The microbiome - the collective name for the trillions of bacteria that live in our gut - is today's hottest medical topic. Synthesising the latest findings, Dr. 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 cravings, our immunity, and even our genes.

But beyond the science, what sets The Microbiome Solution apart is Dr. Chutkan's powerful plan for optimising your well-being. Discover how our hyperhygienic lifestyle, enforced with hand-sanitising gels and antibiotics, is stripping our bodies of their natural protective systems; learn about essential prebiotics and probiotics; read a private introduction to the stool transplant, the radical superfix for a severe microbial imbalance; and cook for thousands of billions with recipes that replenish your microbiome.

This book will bring welcome relief to the many millions worldwide who need to grow a good 'gut garden' - and enjoy healthier, happier lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The guts of it

The content matter is something that has far ranging consequences for the health of humanity.
I found the lists were very hard to digest pardon the pun in an audible version of this book. As the names and instructions or medical terms were quite hard to comprehend this is when I was wishing I had bought the hard copy not the audio version.
Still good content but difficult to enjoy.

Life changing book of healing.

I already knew that we have good and bad gut bugs but this book takes you on journey and really exposes you to the connection between food and health. I have had to read several times as the information is so profound and I can't remember it all. I have recommended this book to all of my clients, friends and family as a must have. Robyn describes how and why many of us are suffering from constant ill health and succumbing to serious disease and its because of what we are putting into and on our bodies. So much now makes sense.

Flew through, did not want to stop listening.

For expecting mothers this can be a very useful asset. Opens your eyes to the multiple methods not explored in modern medicine.

Makes sense

All made sense to me and supported my established understanding of good diet. The pdf will be handy for recipes.

It is really well vulgarized for general audience to understand and apply the eat clean live dirty plan.

Intriguing detail and excellent take home tips

Robynne details the subject of gut health in an engaging way rather than being too heavy with scientific detail.

The take home advice is easily laid out and made easy to adapt into lifestyle choices.

Had potential, but author follows the formula.

Would you try another book written by Robynne Chutkan or narrated by Jennifer Vuletic?

The narrator was fine, I would not read another book by this author.

What about Jennifer Vuletic’s performance did you like?

Loud and clear.

Did The Microbiome Solution inspire you to do anything?

Nothing that I wasn't inspired before I listened to the book to do.

Any additional comments?

I think if the author hadn't been so mindful of writing a commercially successful book, and respected the intelligence of her audience perhaps a little more, the quality of information the book contained would have benefited and resulted in a stronger book.

Fantastic resource, enjoyable read, RECOMMENDED!!!

Really enjoyed it, did it all in a day, what a day it's been. in the space of 6/7 hours I've became an expert on the FLORA/MICRO-BIOME inside of our gut and just how vital it is for health.

I've just purchased the pro biotics you recommend too!! Thank you so much.

The multitude within us demystified

fascinating exploration of the microcosm that resides within each of us and the reasons why ignorance of its existence can result in so many modern illnesses. Most importantly practical solutions to optimise health.

An engaging and educational listen

I enjoyed the narrating which was soothing to my ears. The information was sold and aligned with my beliefs and understanding, I learned a lot more, adding to my knowledge and the flow of the story was great, there wasn't much repetition or an overload of facts and figures... Just enough with examples. It's been my favorite health topic book to listen to so far! Thank you
