  • Factors that disrupt the microbiome rhythmicity and increase susceptibility to disease
  • The effect of chronic stress and diet on the gut microbiome and serotonin synthesis
  • A deep dive into the role diet plays on the regulation of the brain-gut-microbiome network
  • The effect of lifestyle factors such as exercise, mindset and sleep on the composition and function of the microbiome and immune system
  • Practical approaches to restore the gut microbiome by prioritizing microbe health
  • An overview of the impact modern agriculture has had on soil-based ecosystems and soil microbiota diversity and its effect on the gut microbiome

"This is a timely book considering the interest in both gut health and immunity, and topics nutrition professionals need to understand and stay up to date on."
Kathie Swift, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND, Saratoga Springs, NY

"This book touches upon so many related topics regarding our gut microbiome, such as current diets, supplements, testing pros and cons, and even agricultural practices. In a way, it connects the dots, providing a reasonable explanation for root causes of our most common chronic health conditions today. It's very comprehensive and the way he explains concepts and breaks down the relevant studies are easy to understand. It's an excellent resource and reference to get up to speed on this topic."
-Renata Mangrum, MPH, RDN, Kensington, MD
