After he was diagnosed with a chronic disease, Matan Hakimi put his successful photojournalism career on hold to learn everything he could about chronic disease and gut health. For the better half of a decade, he consumed the most up-to-date scientific research, talked to dozens of leading scientists and clinicians around the world, and visited the country’s best neurology departments—all in the hopes of understanding his condition. 

Now, in Gut Rules, Hakimi presents a comprehensive guide to gut optimization. He uncovers the stunning link between our dietary and lifestyle choices and chronic disease, revealing how the foods you eat directly affect your overall physical and mental health.
