Using the Power of the Microbiome
Balance. From menstruation and fertility to menopause and mood, we’re quick to think “female issues” simply stem from hormone imbalances. But, as it turns out, there’s more to the story – and more that can be done to help – than many women think. Offering hope and healing to women everywhere, Raphael Kellman, MD, explains the role of the microbiome in your physical, emotional, and mental health – and what can be done to help bring balance back. The founder of “Microbiome Medicine,” Dr. Raphael Kellman is also medical director of the Kellman Center in New York City and the bestselling author of The Microbiome Breakthrough and The Microbiome Diet. Specializing in thyroid disorders, gastro concerns, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autism, anxiety, Lyme disease, cancer treatments, infertility, weight management, and unexplained malaise, Dr. Kellman has treated tens of thousands of patients using his microbiome-centered approach to medicine. And he hopes to help you too. In Book Two of The Microbiome Health Series, Hormone Balance & Thyroid Disease, Dr. Kellman explores the complex relationship between the microbiome, the thyroid, and hormones and The Four R’s of his “Microbiome Protocol” (Remove, Replace, Reinoculate, and Repair) to address issues including weight gain, irregular periods, insomnia, fatigue, menopause, infertility, skin issues, anxiety, and brain fog. A quick, to-the-point read that you can reference again and again, Hormone Balance & Thyroid Disease will teach you what foods disrupt your whole ecology, the digestive enzymes you need for optimal digestion, the prebiotics and targeted probiotics that replenish your microbiome, and what you need to add to your daily regimen in order to restore the balance you’ve been looking for.
