Publisher’s Description: 

A practical plan for mitigating the effects of viruses like SARS-CoV-2 and resolving long-haul symptomsfrom a renowned gastroenterologist and the author of Gutbliss.

Multiple studies have now confirmed a dramatic link between the health of our microbiomethe trillions of bacteria that live in our digestive tract and help fight invading virusesand our likelihood of getting devastating illnesses like COVID. The balance of these microscopic organisms can also influence the severity of infection, and impact our bodys ability to combat lingering symptoms including inflammation, brain fog, fatigue, depression, and more.

In The Anti-Viral Gut,Dr. Robynne Chutkan explains this groundbreaking research and offers a prescriptive plan for anyone recovering from a viral illness to rehab their gut microbes and restore their health. Low-fiber diets, limited exposure to nature, and overzealous use of pharmaceuticals have messed up our microbiome, making many of us susceptible to the worst long-hauler effects of COVID. But the good news is that unlike our genes, our microbiome can change dramatically in as little as thirty hours after food reaches the gut, offering a pathway back to health for those who are suffering, and proven protection for those who want to stay well.

In this powerful road map to strengthening the gut immune system and feeling like you again after illness, Chutkan gives practical advice for balancing diet, exercise, and time outdoorsvegetables, sweat, and dirtto optimize overall health. The Anti-Viral Gut includes:

a step-by-step nutrition plan, including 25 recipes and an explanation of which foods and preparation methods bring you the fastest results
protocols for replacing immune-suppressive, microbiome-disruptive medications with safer alternatives
guidelines for exercise, sleep hygiene, and intermittent fasting
methods for working mindfulness, breathwork, and meditation into your daily routine
advice on maximizing the potent anti-viral effects of nature

Complete with inspiring stories from Dr. Chutkans own patients who have battled COVID, The Anti-Viral Gut will empower readers to jump-start their journey toward healing.
