"I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life" by Ed Yong, 2016.
https://www.amazon.com/Contain-Multitud ... 062368605/

In addition to discussing the human microbiome, the book can be better described as discussing aspects of the planet's microbiome including ...

The Wahls Protocol is more than just a nutrient-dense diet, as shown in these excerpts from the Vitamin D pages:

David Milarch has a mission, to clone the oldest trees and preserve their genetics and use those trees to help rebuild the forests to the benefit of all living things on the planet. His story is discussed in Jim Robbins' 2012 book "The Man Who Planted Trees." It's a book worth reading.

Do You Believe In Magic?

Currently reading this. It's pretty good and cuts through a lot of "woo" in CAM. I think it is worth reading for anyone with a chronic illness since there is so much snake oil out there.
