David Perlmutter – Brain Maker

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise – from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem. Astonishing new research sheds light on the influence of the human microbiome in every aspect of health, including your nervous system.

In Brain Maker, Dr Perlmutter explains the connection between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on the environment, how it can become ‘sick’, and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better.

With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

This is about a 3.5 – 3.75 star rating. The book was well researched, informative and I enjoyed some of the tidbits I learned about bird behavior. The author must have a ton of patience, as the book has very minute details (i.e., how many times per day a bird fed its young, cleaned up its poop, etc). However, there were some parts where my attention wandered. I also wasn’t comfortable with him touching the young birds in a nest in order to get the parents agitated so he can study their communication. I listened to this on audio, which I am glad I did; I am not sure I would have stayed with it in the printed format. Part of the problem also may be that I am not the type of person to sit in the woods for hours on end and observe the surroundings; perhaps more of a “nature” person would appreciate this more.
