You see, you can feel better within the next 24 hours - just by altering the food you eat.

The Chinese are notorious for using food as prevention for health ailments. And it works. For example, the percentage of Americans with arthritis is four times higher than the percentage of those with the ailment in China.

Strange narrator

Found this really difficult to listen to. The narrators pitch, pauses and tone I found highly frustrating as I couldn't determine what some sentences actually meant. The audio wasn't always crisp and clear either. Not sure why it has such high reviews to be honest.

Need to be medically trained

This book is written all in medical jargon. It is like trying to decode the results of testing on a document straight from a scientist’s lab. She even reads it like a robot. If you have medical training and understand all of that lingo, then maybe the book will be informative for you. But then again, maybe not. Sometimes when people only acknowledge what they see in a lab with mice, they don’t see some of the things that actually work in real life.

Not as good as Brain Maker but good.

I listen to this book back to back with the brain maker. Overall this book unlocked a lot of information but I would definitely suggest the brain maker over this book. He's far off on his information about saturated fats animal fats, gluten and some other foods. To understand more on those foods read wheat belly, why we get fat, the Bulletproof diet among others in that line of thinking. But over all I would deathly suggest adding up your arsenal.

I am in love with this book!

Everything about this book is amazing. Their theories are all in line with my own that I formulated over the years. I am an aesthetician but I also have a huge interest in nutrition and I see the direct correlation of gut health and skin health. I would recommend this book to anyone cares about their health or their beauty.

Grateful for this book

The authors have presented a scholarly yet practical book that has changed my awareness and impacted my eating choices. Even listening on audible, I was able to follow the book quite well. The book answered a number of questions that I had and presented new information. The authors seemed to make every effort to stick with scientific analysis and testing results rather than bare opinion. At the same time, the book was engaging.

very disapointed in this book!

Pros
the reader was well qualified, easy to understand.
Cons
this book is a scattered overview.
it was too general .
I was expecting better.
there was nothing in this book to help patients learn how to repair and return their "gut" to a
healthy environment.

Very good info for living

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.

Inconsistent: Can the microbiome change or not?

This is a generally okay intro to the microbiome. However, I had a hard time getting past the internally inconsistent messaging throughout the book: on the one hand, the authors talk about the amazing plasticity of the microbiome and how it can change in just a day - you can feed it well or you can feed it poorly, and your health can change as a result. But then they spend a LOT of time on the early development of the microbiome, with a general message that if your kid is born by C-section, isn't breast fed, and/or takes antibiotics as a neonate, then their microbiome is essentially doomed, never to recover. This is an exaggeration on my part but also on theirs. The long term impact on the microbiome of any of these early childhood events just hasn't been studied, and it's a disservice to the public and to science to overstate what we know. I expect this makes for good book sales so perhaps that's what's driving the content here.

Would like more science behind how things work

I wouldn’t mind the science behind it. It’s got good information on the microbiota, but the information tends to be surface level. A good listen, but could be better.
