Description
Are you sick?
Are you plagued by chronic health problems with no cure or remedy in sight?
Are you tired of spending thousands on medications that only seem to make you worse?
Think that your drugs are a sham that are just managing symptoms and never dealing with the root cause? You’re not alone!
Millions suffer from similar ailments and health struggles just like you, only to be prescribed more medications that can actually cause harm, and in some cases, even kill you. The medical industry has it all backward!
Chronic health conditions and mental health disorders are increasing at an alarming rate, and yet we are still trying to use the same old ineffective drugs that can have very serious side effects.
We’re the blind leading the blind in the hopes that the next great pill will solve all of our problems. Meanwhile, the health of the majority of Canadians and Americans is deteriorating - fast!
But there is a growing understanding in the community that there’s a bigger beast at the heart of the health epidemic …
It’s called the microbiome. And it’s intimately connected to your brain.
Microbiome health is brain health.
In Biology of the Brain, Kent MacLeod, pharmacist, founder and CEO of NutriChem Compounding Pharmacy and Clinic, breaks down why modern medicine is killing people instead of healing them. Instead of leaving the problem as it stands, he provides you with clear, actionable steps to not only heal your microbiome, but to restore your brain health and get your life back.

Excerpt
I’ll never forget this 63-year-old woman who’d come into my clinic. We’ll call her Susie. Susie had type two diabetes, suffered from obesity, and from severe high blood sugar. She tried diets and to exercise to lose the weight, but nothing worked.
She even resorted to medication to stimulate normal blood sugar levels and weight loss. This only made matters worse for her. By the time she came to me, she was desperate (it’s unfortunate I was seen as the last resort, but I’m glad she came to me).
We evaluated her lifestyle, her food intake, her diet, her regimen, her medications. We went over her prior tests, then did our own full-body analysis to determine the culprit of her health issues and inability to lose weight.
Can you guess what it was?
You’re right. Her gut microbiome was all out of whack and needed a drastic recovery if she had any hope of living an abundant life without worry, stress, and chronic health failure. After I went over the test results with her and explained her situation, she became noticeably distraught.
She had been struggling with her weight for years and she had made it her identity. She was never going to lose weight and would always have diabetes and health problems. There was no hope for her. As she wiped the tears from her eyes and lifted her head to me, I asked her one question, “Susie, do you want to get well?”


My Review
I received this book in return for an honest review.


By Lynda Dickson
In this book, the author explains what the body’s microbiome is and its link to different diseases. He also discusses the connection between the gut and the brain and how the gut microbiome affects mental health. We learn about the importance of a good diet, the ill effects of alcohol and drugs (legal and illegal), and the beneficial effects of probiotics and prebiotics on the microbiome. He concludes by presenting seven case studies and how these patients were treated in his clinic.
The book contains a wealth of information on the gut-brain connection and provides dietary solutions to both physical and mental illnesses. While the author includes details of his clinic’s practices, a lot of the dietary advice can be implemented by readers on their own.
A fascinating look at the importance of diet on both physical and mental health.
