Gut Crisis: How Diet, Probiotics, and Friendly Bacteria Help You Lose Weight and Heal Your Body and Mind


Professor Keith Wallace


The gut/brain connection was already recognized by Ayurveda thousands of years ago

Keith and Samantha Wallace Publish Book on Gut Health

Professor Keith Wallace and his wife Samantha have written a new book titled Gut Crisis: How Diet, Probiotics, and Friendly Bacteria Help You Lose Weight and Heal Your Body and Mind.

Gut Crisis addresses a widespread health epidemic, which is the result of poor food choices and the overuse of antibiotics. Many people today have digestive problems that are caused by an imbalanced state of gut bacteria.

“Medical science is beginning to understand what the ancients have known for centuries: an imbalanced gut leads to disease,” said Dr. Wallace. “It begins with a break in the gut wall, followed by a local inflammatory response. This leads to a chronic state of inflammation, which is the source of disorders ranging from heart disease to Alzheimer’s.”

The authors present the most recent and effective treatment programs as well as practical advice from the perspective of the ancient natural health system of Ayurveda. The book introduces readers to some basic concepts of Ayurveda and discusses how a healthy diet, customized to one’s “gut/brain nature,” along with a healthy lifestyle can restore balance in the gut and heal the body and the mind. The book also recommends the practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique to reduce stress and improve digestion.

Gut Crisis covers practical issues that affect everyone:

  • the disorders caused by an imbalanced state of gut bacteria
  • how gut bacteria affect cravings and emotions
  • the effects of probiotics
  • one’s personal “gut/brain nature”
  • how to heal the gut.

Keith Wallace is a pioneering researcher on the physiology of consciousness. He established the first Maharishi AyurVeda® clinics in America and helped initiate the first master’s degree program in Maharishi AyurVeda and integrative medicine in the US. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of MUM and professor and chair of the Department of Physiology and Health.

Samantha Wallace had a successful career as a model, appearing on the cover of Vogue and other magazines. She has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique since 1973. She is coauthor of the book Quantum Golf and is currently writing a book on beauty and essential oils.
