The holiday season is here! And along with the holidays comes the inevitable stress of WHAT THE HECK AM I GETTING EVERYONE? If you’re typically a Christmas eve shopper and want to get ahead of the crowds this year, check out this list we pulled together of 6 holiday gifts for the gut health guru in your life!
This is the perfect gift for that new mom in your life you have who’s always looking to learn more about science-based best health practices. The publisher’s summary says: This engaging and important book explains how the millions of microbes that live in our bodies influence childhood development; why an imbalance in those microbes can lead to obesity, diabetes, asthma, autism, and reactions to vaccines, among other chronic conditions; and how – from conception on – parents can positively impact their own behaviors and those of their children. It describes how natural childbirth, breastfeeding, and solid foods influence children’s microbiota and offers practical advice on whether to sterilize food implements for babies, the use of antibiotics, and why having pets is a good idea.
If that book worm in your life has already read Let them Eat Dirt, you can always give them Dr. Brett Finlay and Dr. Jessica Finlay’s newest book, The Whole Body Microbiome. This books summary describes it as an ‘eye-opening new take on the significance of the microbiome, the Finlays offer empowering knowledge, surprising myth-busters, and simple yet effective daily tips that prove “dirty” is the new clean. Whether it’s by changing your diet, enjoying a glass of wine, getting more exercise, trading your antibacterial gel for good old soap and water, or spending more time outdoors, you can change your life today; so that you and your microbes live long—and prosper.’
