Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise – from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome – the vast population of organisms that live in your body and out -number your own cells ten to one. What’s taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions.

Fresh off his huge public television pledge blockbuster, BrainChange, first released in December 2013, Dr. Perlmutter explains in Brain Maker the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of five steps to improving gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

The pledge events for this program were produced at KQED with Jessica Hanson York as the pledge host with Dr. Perlmutter in the studio.

Premiums include the companion book, program DVD, a 5-DVD set of additional information on the microbiome, a 2 CD audio set, a book with additional healthy recipes, as well as supporting print pieces such as a guide to probiotics and a guide to supplements.

The program is produced by Ellyne Lonergan of GlassOnion Productions (Road To Perfect Health, The Ultramind Solution with Dr Mark Hyman, Drop 7 Foods with JJ Virgin, and others).

Hardcover Book:

New York Times bestseller Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life. Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise–from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome – the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells ten to one. What’s taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions.

In Brain Maker, Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, BRAIN MAKER opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

 

Audio CD Set (2 CDs):

The Microbiome – Guardian of Your Health. In these two audio CDs Dr. Perlmutter eloquently explains the fundamental role of the gut bacteria in regulating critical functions in human physiology, including immunity, inflammation, and the important role of these processes in brain health. Dr. Perlmutter explores how lifestyle choices, including food and medications, affect the health of gut bacteria and how this translates into health or disease, as well as how the microbiome–the name given to the 100 trillion bacteria living within each of us–can be rehabilitated through appropriate  and empowering dietary choices.

 

Dr. Perlmutter Recommends Card (2-sided):

Side 1 – Top Probiotic Foods. Dr. Perlmutter lists his top choices for probiotic-rich foods. As described in the program, these widely available, fermented foods help supply abundant beneficial bacteria to rebuild gut health and integrity, fundamental goals for a healthy brain.

Side 2 – Top Prebiotic Foods. Prebiotic Foods are rich in prebiotic fiber, a unique dietary fiber that enhances the growth and metabolism of the healthy bacteria that colonize the intestines. The list includes dandelion greens, jicama, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke and several other easy-to-find vegetables.

 

5-DVD Set:

Understanding The Microbiome. This 5 DVD set provides the viewer with an extensive understanding the role of the microbiome, the collection of more than 100 trillion bacteria living within the gut, in brain health and disease. While it is a review of the most leading edge, well-respected science in this area, Dr. Perlmutter makes this information wonderfully and easily approachable for the general audience. The set includes:

Disc 1 – A New Perspective. This DVD explores the basics of the new science demonstrating the powerful and previously unrecognized role of the microbiome in regulating some of our most basic physiological functions including immunity, inflammation, and metabolism.

Disc 2 – The Microbiome and the Brain. Continues the explanation of the microbiome in terms of its role in health and disease and specifically relates these functions to issues related to brain function and brain disease.

Disc 3 – Diet and the Microbiome. Reveals the powerful role of dietary choices in shaping the microbiome, for better or worse.

Disc 4 – Gut Health, Immunity and Inflammation. This compelling DVD connects the role of the microbiome in regulating immunity and inflammation directly to the health and functionality of the brain. Dr. Perlmutter’s presentation in this DVD brings the viewer to the most advanced science in this area in a way that is completely understandable by a general viewing audience.

Disc 5 – Powerful Therapy for the Microbiome. In this final DVD, Dr. empowers the viewer with the user-friendly tools to rebuild a healthy microbiome and thus pave the way for unprecedented brain health.

 

Recipe Booklet:

The Brain Maker Delicious Dozen – Twelve Bonus Recipes to Nurture Your Microbiome. This recipe booklet begins with an introduction providing the reader with an extensive understanding of the role of the gut bacteria in brain health. It then explores the powerful role of food choices in nurturing the gut bacteria as a means of paving the way to optimize brain functionality and health. Twelve unique recipes, including both probiotic fermented foods (rich in healthy probiotic bacteria) as well as prebiotic dishes (loaded with prebiotic fiber to enhance the growth and vitality of our resident healthy gut bacteria) are provided.

Memory Rescue with Daniel Amen, MD

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
