A Thought Provoking Hypothesis

A few days ago I watched a very informative and thought provoking presentation by Dr David Perlmutter. He is the editor of The Microbiome and the Brain authored by top experts in the field. Dr. Perlmutter is also the recipient of numerous awards, including: the Linus Pauling Award for his innovative approaches to neurological disorders; the National Nutritional Foods Association Clinician of the Year Award, the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the American College of Nutrition, and most recently the 2019 Global Leadership Award from the Integrative Healthcare Symposium.

With these credentials I found it hard to ignore what he had to say about the gut microbiome and immunity and his suggestion that the poor state of the ‘western’ diet could contribute to gut dysbiosis leading to susceptibility to pathogens.
