About the Book

How improving gut health can optimize brain health and help prevent cognitive decline.

Book Synopsis

The brain and the gut are neurologically and biochemically connected via millions of nerves and the trillions of microbes that populate the intestines. Known as the gut-brain axis, this communication network between the two systems is vast and complex. Although scientists have known about this axis for some time, the assumption was that the gut needed the brain in order to function. Only recently has science given the gut its due credit in this relationship. Researchers are learning that the gut microbiome can influence certain physiological processes in the brain. Our microbiome can affect how we think and function--cognition, memory, motor control--for better or worse.
More and more, poor gut health is being linked to a decline in brain health, opening up possibilities for exciting new and effective treatments to prevent and even help to heal disease states associated with poor brain health. Much of the research is focused on three leading causes of neurodegeneration that doctors have been struggling to treat effectively: stroke, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's. Much of the recent research highlights the connection between well-known risk factors for these disorders--including genetics, environmental toxins, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease--and poor gut health, reinforcing that the connection between gut and brain health we're seeing isn't coincidental.
As a gastroenterologist with a personal and professional interest in understanding the role the gut plays in brain health and in employing targeted treatments that can prevent cognitive decline, Dr. Nandi is poised to deliver this information to consumers. Heal Your Gut, Save Your Brain explains the emerging science, including the pathophysiology between the gut and these disorders, in lay terms. It also shows readers how simple changes to improve gut health--most of which are not currently part of a neurologist's standard treatment protocol--can help them to
▪ achieve excellent brain health;
▪ preserve brain health to help prevent neurological disease; and
▪ dramatically improve recovery from devastating neurological disorders such as: stroke, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's
Dr. Nandi's accessible and simple program is based on five pillars, which include nutrition, movement, purpose, spirituality, and community, and offers an holistic approach to helping prevent and mitigate cognitive decline.

Review Quotes

"You are what you eat" is something we have all heard. But the more we learn about the connections between our diet and our health and more recently, between our gut and our brain, the more this adage is known to be true. In Heal Your Gut, Save Your Brain, Dr. Partha Nandi provides a deeply personal and highly engaging "how to" book on living healthfully and the rapidly evolving science of brain health. Dr. Nandi tackles the complexity of the intersection of our mind, spirit, and body with a formula and recipes that bring his expertly informed philosophy to your daily life and straight to your dining table. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in doing more than just learning about the biological gut-brain axis, but who wants to translate the science into meaningful change in their life and for their future. - David T. Rubin, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Chief, Section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at University of Chicago

Dr. Partha Nandi's 'Heal Your Gut, Save Your Brain' articulates a notion that is becoming increasingly clear - the gut is the center of the human universe. Both disease and health emanate from our GI tract! In this book, Dr. Nandi has created a field guide for anyone interested in the bidirectional relationship between the gut and the brain in health and disease. - William D. Chey, M.D., F.A.C.G., A.G.A.F., F.A.C.P., R.F.F., H. Marvin Pollard Professor of Gastroenterology, Professor of Nutrition Sciences, Chief, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology at Michigan Medicine
