About the Author
The author is a California Naturopath and holds a Ph.D. in Natural Health Sciences. His books are focused upon science-based natural health solutions.
"People look to natural solutions because many of those presented by conventional medicine are not sustainable due to side effects and/or damage to the environment. My objective is to separate hype from reality. To accomplish this, I present the clinical evidence and scientific research on natural healing methods together with their historical use. I seek to empower the reader with the facts, enabling wise health decisions."

This book has come out with great timing because most of the strains he talks about are now availalbe on the market in individualized supplemental form. Meaning, it is possible to get a probiotic with just one beneficial bacteria vs being stuck with probiotic formulas that have several or many beneficial bacteria. As a result it is possible to individually taylor the beneficial bacteria to very specific individual needs vs the "one size fits all" probiotics of the past.
I also have the Oral Probiotics book that he has also written. Although a bit of the information is repetitive, it still has invaluable additional information. It is a great additional complement.
This is a good all-around book on probiotics, with a recent publication (2012), so the information is quite up to date.
Thank you Case Adams for putting this book together!
However, I must say, I feel the writing style and editing were wanting. There were some obvious typos found throughout the book, and the style and flow felt inconsistent. Abbreviations were used at different times; the names of specific species and strains were used differently from one page to the next; some scientific terms were not clarified to the reader; abbreviations for immunoglobulins, interleukins; and other biochemicals were inconsistent; etc. I think a second edition could use a major cleanup, as well an overhaul to the section on clinical studies to read more for the layman. (IL-10, IL-2, IgA, TNF-alpha, goodness me! I get lost fast!)
Basically, the content is great and well researched, but the writing style and editing did not match the quality of information. I was very close to giving this book a 4-star rating, but I feel that the unfounded 1-star rating by another user needs to be canceled out.
I think it is GREAT.
Answer - of course there is and Case Adams shows you how.
