FROM INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED NEUROLOGIST AND #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR,
DAVID PERLMUTTER, M.D. author on Brain Maker
There have been strides in treating many life-threatening illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer. The same, however, cannot be said for brain-related disorders. We don’t have meaningful treatments, let alone cures, for our most challenging but all too common neurological ailments. The good news is that the latest, cutting-edge science now links brain health and brain dysfunction to what goes on in the gut. #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain, Dr. David Perlmutter, shares this extraordinary new science, in lay terms, as well as practical advice on how to protect your brain in BRAIN MAKER: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain—for Life. Dr. Perlmutter offers recommendations designed to treat and prevent brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s and dementia; alleviate moodiness and depression; bolster our immune system and reduce autoimmunity; and improve metabolic disorders, including diabetes and obesity, which do factor into long-term brain health.
In BRAIN MAKER, Dr. Permlutter outlines what to eat and the simple dietary changes we need to make for better brain health including the role of prebiotics, the nutrient sources of fuel for the bacteria living within our guts; how probiotics, living microorganisms that encourage beneficial bacteria already living in the body, play a role in brain health; how fermented foods, such as yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi, open the door to healthy brain function; and how exercise, sleep, and stress management influence our brain health.
