A Breakthrough Program to Treat the Root Cause of Chronic Illness and Optimize Your Health

by Dr Ben Lynch

“Dirty Genes powerfully challenges the notion that genes are the final arbiters of health and disease. Dr. Ben Lynch skillfully reveals how leveraging specific lifestyle choices can help re-write our health destiny.”
—David Perlmutter MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan

 "Dr. Lynch's book is a must-have companion for anyone struggling to sort out the confusing world of genetic science for the consumer. Have you thought that your genes were your destiny? This book will give you the ability to actually reprogram your genes to have a long and healthy life."
--Alan Christianson, NMD NY Times Bestselling author of The Adrenal Reset Diet. 

 "We are in a time between stories and we need help understanding how to bring the latest biological science into our day to day lives. Dr. Ben Lynch has dedicated himself to just this mission. Myth busting the assumption that genes lead to disease, he provides a do-it-yourself guide to personalizing your health through the lens of susceptibilities...none of which signify your destiny. Dirty Genes teaches the power that we have to heal, against all odds."
--Kelly Brogan M.D, New York Times Bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own

"Dr. Ben Lynch nails it with Dirty Genes. It is a pleasure reading as his indomitable 'rower' personality truly comes through, i.e., warm, funny, friendly, simplifying without oversimplifying, and highly organized in his thought process. If you care about the future of medicine and the central importance of the gene/environment interaction, read this book." 
--Sara Gottfried MD, New York Times bestselling author of Younger, The Hormone Reset Diet, and The Hormone Cure

A leading expert in epigenetics—how genes switch on and off—provides a revolutionary, holistic, and personalized approach to better health by improving how your genes behave to prevent and reverse common ailments, chronic illnesses, and life-threatening diseases, including cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, obesity, cancer, diabetes, and more.

Your genes have a tremendous impact on your health. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Ben Lynch reveals that while you can’t change the genes you were born with, you can change how they affect you and optimize them to work to your advantage.

When your genes are working properly, you feel energized and healthy. But when your genes are “dirty,” or not functioning optimally, your health suffers and you get sick. Some genes are “born dirty"—they have certain variations that can cause you problems. Other genes merely “act dirty” in response to your environment, diet, or lifestyle. You can improve both types of these dirty genes through healthy eating, good sleep, stress relief, environmental detox, and other holistic and nourishing lifestyle habits.

As a leader in the emerging science of genetic abnormalities Dr. Lynch has successfully treated thousands of clients. Dirty Genes offers a never-before-published questionnaire to identify which of the top seven dirty genes could be messing up your health. Then using the results, he offers targeted plans—including foods and recipes, sleep, supplements, environmental detox and other natural and holistic lifestyle changes—to help you clean up your dirty genes, eliminating symptoms, and enhancing your overall physical and mental health.

Many of us have been taught that our genes doom us because we are predisposed to the disorders and diseases that run in our families. But as Dr. Lynch shows you can rewrite, your genetic destiny—once you know how.  It can be rewritten and changed, moment by moment, throughout your life. Dirty Genes provides a practical, personalized protocol to make the most out of your genetic inheritance, now and for the rest of your life.

The Microbiome Solution to Heal Depression, Anxiety
and Mental Fog Without Prescription Drugs
by Raphael Kellman, M.D.

“After decades of treating patients for depression, gastrointestinal problems, low thyroid, and a multitude of other ‘mysterious’ ailments, pioneer in holistic and functional medicine Dr. Raphael Kellman has connected the dots between the brain, the gut, the microbiome, and the thyroid. The Whole Brain offers his groundbreaking plan to diminish anxiety and depression—and increase your brain function.”
—Izabella Wentz, PharmD, FASCP, #1 NYT Bestselling Author of Hashimoto’s Protocol  

“With depression affecting more than 300 million people worldwide, a path to healing that takes into account multiple factors is long overdue. In The Whole Brain, Dr. Raphael Kellman shares his groundbreaking research, showing the intimate connections between the gut, microbriome, thyroid, and brain, and then offers a proven, holistic plan that doesn’t rely on prescription medication.”
—Mark Hyman, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine, the Founder of The UltraWellness Center, ten-time #1 New York Times Bestselling author

“Dr. Kellman has long been on the cutting-edge of health and science. Now, he introduces his groundbreaking concept of The Whole Brain: If you want to improve brain function—if you want your mind to be focused, your memory to be sharp, and your mood to be hopeful—start with a healthier microbiome, heal your gut, and balance your thyroid. This book will show you how.”
---Dr Terry Wahls, author of The Wahls Protocol A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions 

Following the success of THE MICROBIOME DIET, Dr. Raphael Kellman now offers a completely new approach to curing depression and other mental ailments. A pioneer in functional and integrative medicine, Dr. Kellman now identifies the revolutionary concept of "the whole brain", a biological system made up of the microbiome, the gut, and the thyroid and how this system of organs works in tandem to heal depression, anxiety and that “blah” feeling without toxic drugs. His program for the Whole Brain provides a 30 day regimen of food, supplements, probiotics and meditations that heal the underlying causes of these conditions on a deeper more profound level.

Dr Kellman’s innovative work on thyroid, gut health and the microbiome, puts him squarely in the forefront of this headline-grabbing topic. Scientific research now demonstrates that the microbiome effects brain health, but until now, no one has identified the interconnected system of the "whole brain" and formulated a practical plan for feeling happier and healthier without the damaging side effects of prescription medication.

Dr. Kellman has long understood the vast ecosystem of bacteria and other microorganisms inside us, and how it profoundly effects how our bodies and brains function. Dr. Kellman is widely recognized as a pioneer in microbiome medicine and its healthy applications.  He was recently invited by the American College for the Advancement of Medicine to teach their first Microbiome Medicine lecture for physicians and in 2016 he founded the Microbiome Medicine Summit, hosting such renowned experts as Dr. Joseph Mercola, Amy Myers M.D, David Perlmutter M.D, Mark Hyman M.D. and others

His media work includes appearances on the national television program “The Better Show,” which broadcasts to more than a million viewers, and on “One World Presents,” hosted by Deepak Chopra, with an international viewership that reaches more than 195 countries.  He has also appeared on programs hosted by Christiane Northrup, M.D, Ronald Hoffman LM.D and on CBS NY. His wide-ranging blogs and articles appear frequently on Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Organic Spa Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and elsewhere.

He is the founder of the Kellman Center for Integrative and Functional Medicine in New York City, where he maintains an active practice.
