Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients' ailments with drugs or surgical procedures - until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.

Have heard Dr Wahls' TED talk and found her new book enlightening. Certainly something to consider for those with MS or others with chronic disease.

Genetics and lifestyle are thought to be the two most important determinants of good health. But that is not the whole story. We have a second genome, our gut bacteria, that sets the dial on our bodies. Unlike our DNA, we can influence the gut bacteria, or microbiota, to optimize all aspects of our health.

I have heard and read about the importance of the bacteria in our gut and this pulls it all together very nicely. My Grandmother always said we needed to eat a bushel of dirt before we were 5. Not actually eat it, but be outside and play in it We are too obsessed with being clean and it isn't good for us. The book has a nice balance of scientific information and practical advice.
