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.

AWESOME BOOK!

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.

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

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.
