The revolutionary approach that fixes your digestion by unleashing nature’s tiny but powerful organism
Your gastrointestinal microbiota is comprised of trillions of organisms that inhabit your intestines. This book shows you how to feed this ecosystem so it can do its job of fighting off disease and maintaining proper digestive function. Author Pamela Ellgen explains in easy-to-understand language how a healthy microbiota facilitates digestion, neutralizes toxins, quells inflammation, supports immunity, and improves metabolism. She also reveals why so many common aliments—including allergies, food sensitivities, weight gain, and autoimmune diseases—can result from a microbiome inbalance. Unleashing the power of prebiotic foods to feed healthy bacteria and introducing live bacterial cultures from fermented foods like homemade yogurt, kombucha, and sauerkraut, The Microbiome Cookbook offers you a proactive food-as-medicine program. Features 150 healthy recipes for nightshade-free, vegan, low FODMAP, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and GAPS diets, this book is the ultimate tool to stop your suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and other inflammatory conditions, including mental health disorders that may be rooted in poor digestive health.
