The bestselling author of Grain Brain uncovers the powerful role of gut bacteria in determining your brain's destiny. 

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise-from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. A medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: New research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome - the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells ten to one. What's taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for a number of brain-related conditions.

During this interview  and in his new book Brain Maker -  Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become "sick," and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain's destiny for the better.

Dr. Perlmutter is known and an “empowering” neurologist.  He is a New York Times best selling author and has been interviewed on a number of TV shows such as 20/20, Oprah, and The Dr. Oz show to a name a few.
