Brain Maker

by David Perlmutter, MD

Rates of neurological disorders are skyrocketing – from ADHD and debilitating anxiety to depression and even dementia. But a medical revolution is under way that will forever change how we understand and treat not only behavioral and mood disorders but also chronic headaches, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, autism, Alzheimer’s, and many more conditions. Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome – the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your cells ten to one.
In Brain Maker, Dr. Perlmutter shows you how to take advantage of this cutting-edge knowledge, explaining how your microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on life-style choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health with a few easy strategies can dramatically alter your brain’s destiny for the better, boosting your mental clarity and adding years to your life.
