The Probiotics Revolution: The Definitive Guide to Safe, Natural Health Solutions Using Probiotic and Prebiotic Foods and Supplements
by Gary B. Huffnagle and Sarah Wernick (Hardcover - May 29, 2007)

From Publishers Weekly:
Holding antibiotics and poor diet responsible for any number of autoimmune disorders-allergies, asthma, skin problems and chronic inflammation-renowned immunology specialist Huffnagle presents, with infectious enthusiasm, the cure for a trigger-happy immune system: probiotics, the good microbes found in fermented foods like yogurt, aged cheese, kefir and kimchi. Once probiotics are introduced to the system, they begin killing off potentially harmful bugs by competing for resources; the resulting balance, Huffnagle shows, will restore proper immunologic function. Huffnagle covers a wide range of territory-including a thorough breakdown both of the immune system and antibiotics-in plenty of detail, but never crosses into textbook-style droning thanks to freelance writer Wernick, who keeps Huffnagle's research friendly and condescension-free. Quizzes, illustrations and personal testimony break up Huffnagle's assertions and the scientific studies that support it, and numerous charts on sources, supplements and substitutions make the shift to a probiotic-rich diet simple. There's no wonder product touted here, just good honest food, some of which-like yogurt, miso and sauerkraut-have likely been used for thousands of years to maintain proper health. Demystifying the digestive and immune systems, the authors present a convincing health plan that's easy to understand and to follow.
