Interesting read. I like to ferment my own food and this book helps you to understand how good bacteria works in your body.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  You had me at Kefir, March 18, 2014
By Lirpa (Myrtle)
The simple mention of Kefir in this book was enough to win me over. It's ability to re-balance a gut, reducing all sorts of health issues, is more than I can say for most other cultured products. When our gut is in balance, so is our immune system, our brain function, energy levels, and attitude! This book is a winner and I recommend it to anyone browsing for help on the subject!

2.0 out of 5 stars.  I wish I spent the time elsewhere, August 14, 2013
By John Buckley (Pleasanton, Ca)
The author knows her subject but I was reading to get some suggestions for adding probiotics to my morning routine. The book ended where I hoped it would begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Interesting stuff, June 22, 2013
By Ken
And very well presented.

The science, while not fully resolved is clearly explained. Both what is known and what isn't (yet)

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A very well researched and written book., May 09, 2013
By Steve
Maybe a bit ponderous and boring, as I find all fact-based scientific books to be, but still chock full of very usefull facts.
I got this book via Kindle, and have made almost a hundred bookmarks and highlights.
There are also several very useful tidbits, one of which I've verified by further research: probiotics from lab produced products (i.e. yogurt, pills, etc.) do NOT last in the gut very long; to get truly lasting results, the stuff MUST come from biological sources (i.e. grow it internally yourself, or get it from another gut).
In my opinion, buy this book, keep it, and refer to it often. Use it as a benchmark for other, more commercially oriented books.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  An essential book for all parents with kids with allergies, April 23, 2013
By Cricket (Bainbridge Island, WA)
My son was tested and diagnosed with food allergies for Wheat, Corn, Soy, Rice, Yeast, Eggs, potatoes, and tomatoes after several months of going to doctors and Seattle Children's Hospital for help. We went to an environmental doctor who gave us an "antigen" for daily use and we were instructed to avoid all food allergens. Given this incredible list, it was difficult to feed my 11 yr old son. He tested positive for the celiac gene and we were told he had celiac by a naturopathic doctor. It was a very difficult time and when he had reaction, it was 5 days on the couch with tears and no relief. The amount of pain my son experienced was incredible.

I became better at cooking and avoiding the allergens. I found this book on Amazon and read it while I was thinking about fecal transplants for my son. I put him on a 6 week heavy program of pro-biotics and pre-biotics while making raw yogurt and cultured vegetables. After 3 weeks, he told me that he was no longer had food allergies. I cannot believe the dramatic turn around for my son. After reading this book, I am angry at Seattle Children's Hospital Pediatric Gastroenterologists for not staring out with a 6-week probiotic program before prescribing tons of toxic medicine.

Probiotics for Breakfast also gives you a true sense of the complexity and how the immune system really works on a cellular communication level. I am fascinated by science and enjoyed the research that supports every point the author makes. I have now read several other books on the subject of probiotics and none compares with the clear message and research to this book.

I highly recommend you read it for yourself and develop your own probiotic guidelines.
