Read this important book and discover the small changes that can make a huge impact.”

This book is empowering, and indispensable for anyone trying to get or stay well.”
–Terry Wahls, M.D., author of The Wahls Protocol

Her mantra ‘Live dirty, eat clean!’  is a scientifically-sound solution. Try her simple program – and get ready to feel the changes immediately.  It’s the proven way to build up our ‘good bugs’ and keep your body strong and vibrant, ready to fight illness and disease.  It’s something we can all do, each and every day.  You will truly transform your health!”

“We live in symbiosis with trillions of bacteria that play a crucial role in determining our health and vitality. The Microbiome Solution is an eye-opening account of how supersanitation, antibiotic overuse and the Western diet collaborate to promote chronic disease by disrupting the gut microbiome’s ecological harmony and balance.  Dr. Chutkan, a leading integrative gastroenterologist, presents a trailblazing program to heal your body from the inside-out by getting dirty and eating clean.  Read this marvelous book and transform your gut microbe at a time.”
