Our gut microbes perform many different essential functions that help us to stay healthy. These include digestion, vitamin production, detoxification, control of gut barrier integrity, regulation of cholesterol metabolism, providing resistance to pathogens, immune regulation, neurotransmitter regulation, regulation of gene expression, and more! In fact, every human cell is impacted by the activities of our gut microbes. A healthy gut microbial community is essential for our health.
In fact, about 90% of all disease can be traced back to the health of the gut and our gut microbiomes. To date, an aberrant gut microbiome has been linked to conditions as wide-ranging as cancer, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, depression, neurodegenerative diseases, autism, autoimmune disease, ulcers, IBD, liver disease, gout, PCOS, osteoporosis, systemic infections, allergies, asthma, and more!
The good news is that our gut bacteria composition is very sensitive to both our short-term choices and long-term habits, particularly when it comes to diet and lifestyle—meaning there’s a metric ton we can do starting today to support a healthy gut microbiome (and therefore a healthy us).
With an unprecedented dive into the scientific literature, The Gut Health Guidebook is the culmination of 6 years of research, unveiling 20 essential keys to gut health, the majority of which have yet to permeate any health-conscious community. In this 300+ page e-book, Dr. Sarah builds a new diet for general health, from the ground up, based on the gut microbiome, that merges everything the science currently tells us is healthful into one comprehensive approach.
The unprecedented deep dive into gut health, examines:
- The features of a healthy gut microbiome
- How a healthy gut microbiome benefits our overall health
- How proteins, fats, and carbohydrates impact the gut microbiome
- How vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals impact the gut microbiome
- How sleep, circadian rhythms, fasting, stress, and activity impact the gut microbiome
- Essential gut health superfoods
- Optimal diet and lifestyle for the gut microbiome
- The 20 keys to gut health
- and so much more!
AND, Get the lowest price when you combine your purchase of The Gut Health Guidebook with your pre-order of The Gut Health Cookbook, coming later this summer!
This companion to The Gut Health Guidebook puts theory into practice with 150+ recipes that each center on at least one of 60 gut health superfood ingredients. The Gut Health Cookbook is organized by gut health superfood, including a summary of each superfood’s benefits to overall health and the gut microbiome, followed by 2 to 4 recipes that highlight that ingredient and pair it with other superfoods. From reimagined decadent desserts to wholesome breakfasts to one-pot meals, this e-book is designed to show you just how easy and delicious eating for your gut microbiome can be!
Note, this is not a Paleo or AIP e-book. During Dr. Sarah’s 6 years of researching for The Gut Health e-books, she made a rule for herself: no preconceived notions on whether a food or lifestyle biohack is good or bad allowed. Instead, Dr. Sarah took the opportunity to build a new optimal diet and lifestyle focused on supporting a healthy and diverse gut microbiome from the ground up. While some of the featured gut microbiome superfoods are not traditionally considered Paleo (like lentils and rice), all of the recipes are gluten-free, approximately 90% are Paleo and more than half are AIP compatible. And, for those of you who have all of Dr. Sarah’s e-books and cookbooks, about half of the recipes in The Gut Health Cookbook are completely new!
The Gut Health Cookbook will be released in late summer 2020! Pre-order and bundle with The Gut Health Guidebook to get first access to the e-cookbook and the lowest price!
