From one of today’s leading experts on the emerging science of the microbiome-brain communication, comes a ground-breaking book that offersevidence that diet- and lifestyle-induced changes in the gut-microbiome play a pivotal role in the health crises of the twenty-first century. In his acclaimed book, The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, offered groundbreaking evidence of the critical role of the microbiome in neurological, emotional and cognitive health, proving once and for all the power and legitimacy of the close interactions of the gut microbiome and the brain. Now, in The Gut-Immune Connection, Dr. Mayer expands on this topic and proposes an even more radical paradigm shift: the gut microbiome is at the center of virtually every major disease that defines our 21st-century public health crisis. Our understanding of the function and impact of the trillions of microorganisms that live in the GI tract continues to advance, and in Dr. Mayer’s own research, he has amassed evidence that the “conversation” that takes place between these microbes and our various organs and bodily systems, is critical to human health. The Gut-Immune Connection offers a comprehensive look at the link between alterations to the gut microbiome and the development of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, brain disorders and cancer, as well as susceptibility to infectious diseases like COVID-19. He reveals the links between the health of the gut microbiome, with the way our food is grown, and ultimately the health of the planet. Dr. Mayer argues that it’s essential we understand the profound effects of gut health on our body and offers strategies to reverse the steady upward rise of these illnesses, including a model for nutrition that puts the health of the microbiome center stage. But time is running out: an irreversible decline of gut microbial diversity and its catastrophic effects on our health is only a few decades away if we don’t make critical changes to both our diet and food supply. To turn the tide, we must radically shift the way we live today. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.Show more
