His latest work, Drop Acid (2022), explores how elevated uric acid powerfully threatens metabolic health, and how it can be brought under control.

Philosophy of The LUV DietTM

Elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection.

Consumption of fructose and purines often exceed the body’s ability to process them, and as a result, too much uric acid builds up in the bloodstream.

A diet low in fructose and purines and rich in anti-oxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols can bring uric acid levels under control and restore optimal metabolism in the body, preventing often life-threatening chronic disease.

Brain Wash
Brain Wash

Fight back against a modern culture that is rewiring our brains and damaging our health with this practical, doctor-approved plan for healing that includes a ten-day boot camp and forty delicious recipes.

Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of digital media. We can buy goods and services for rapid delivery with our fingertips or voice commands. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our connections to others, and even to the world at large.

Brain Wash builds from a simple premise: Our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviors that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone, and overweight than ever before.

The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise–from children being diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway. Astonishing research reveals that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome–the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells ten to one. What’s taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions.


In Brain Maker, Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. With dietary recommendations and a program of six steps to improve gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

Robb Wolf

“Dr. David Perlmutter is one of the first people to not only suggest that modern degenerative diseases are likely caused by poor diet and alterations in gut health, but he has produced clinical research indicating these conditions may be avoided or reversed by altering one's diet and lifestyle. The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan is the culmination of more than 35 years of clinical practice and research that will help you look, feel and perform your best."
