Lopski, many memes were gratuitously thrown in without basis. I do dibestive it since there are not enough better alternative books.
Just double-check everything you decide to use. Mar 28, Jillita rated it it was amazing. No wonder my immune system is so messed up and I’m burdened with chronic fatigue.
I was recently diagnosed with leaky gut, candida, overabundance of other bad gut bacteria, and food allergies and consequently put on a strict diet and probiotic regime to fix this, which is going quite well.
In the meantime this book does a stellar job explaining what probably led to this state and what I can do to have a happy gut and healthy life again. A not overly-scientific read so it’s great fo My poor body! A not overly-scientific digrstive so it’s great for the layperson to digestuve how their digestive system operates and lipsmi why your body requires a healthy, nutrient-dense diet to function properly and prevent disease.
Wellnesd author also goes into great detail about the importance of lipsmi in your gut, which is so overlooked in basic health practices. However, I neglected to really be careful about the types lips,i food I ate and a few years ago, my diagnosis progressed into something slightly worse.
After the horrible experience I went through to discover that, it seemed to be the kick I needed to make my health a priority. As a result, I enjoy researching what I can do to maintain a healthy digestive and immune system and this book is where I should have started a long time ago this is the 4th edition, earlier editions have been published.
I recommend this book for anyone struggling with digestive disorders or immune system disorders. Written by Elizabeth Lipski, who holds a doctorate in Clinical Nutrition with a specialization in Functional Medicine, the book is written with a holistic viewpoint in mind.
While I have no formal education in nutrition or medicine, through the research I’ve done with books such as this, I have found the holistic viewpoint aka functional medicine to be most logical. Holistic medicine looks at the body as a whole, not separate systems set apart from each other. One imbalance in one area of the body sets off imbalances in every other system in the body. That being said, Lipski focuses on the body as a whole, and shows how food and digestion sets the track for overall health and wellness.
In addition, a large portion of the book focuses on natural therapies for common digestive problems so you can target your exact issue clearly. Mark Hyman wrote the foreword- I’ll read anything with his name on it! Jan 10, Trisha rated it it was amazing.

Lipski provides a broad view of various therapies for treating digestive issues. For each ailment, she offers many suggestions for treatment that are mostly based on nutritional supplements, using food as medicine, or herbal treatments.

She doesn’t prescribe any specific one diet or solution. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of examin This is an excellent and unbiased primer on digestive health and also a terrific reference book on various ailments that have digestive roots or connections.
Instead, she emphasizes the importance of examining the individual experience of each person even within a common disease or ailment. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn about why digestive wellness is so important for overall health and how it connects to so many diseases. For anyone interested in better health, this is a terrific book to keep on your shelf for reference and review along with in my opinion “Nutritional Healing” by Balch and Balch, “Food and Healing” by Annemarie Colbin, and “Healing with Whole Foods” by Paul Pritchford.
Mar 09, Jodi rated it liked it Shelves: This book contains good solid information and could absolutely really help improve the health of a lot of people. This book was good, but not as good as the book on this topic by Dr Sherry Rogers which I found far more thorough. That book was excellent and so I would recommend it over this one. If all your library has is this book however, it is well worth a read and makes many important points.
Also worth reading are books on the SCD eating plan and the GAPS diet, if you have serious gut issues a This book contains good solid information and could absolutely really help improve the health of a lot of people. Also worth reading are books on the SCD eating plan and the GAPS diet, if you have serious gut issues and dysbiosis and need to heal your gut.
These books take a very different and diet-based approach, that may be even more beneficial for some people. Really a mini-encyclopedia of how you can improve your digestive wellness and, in the process, a lot of problems and serious illnesses that ail you. It is honestly the first place where I’ve seen someone connect the dots with things like digestive health and rosacea but on reading it all, it makes perfect sense. I wish I could get some people I know to change their diets and see if some of their health problems would go away.
If you’re interested in autism, ADD, and ADHD, you should buy “Digesti Really a mini-encyclopedia of how you can improve your digestive wellness and, in the process, a lot of problems and serious illnesses that ail you. If you’re interested in autism, ADD, and ADHD, you should buy “Digestive Wellness for Children” as they are covered there specifically and not in this book although I’m sure this book would have a lot of interesting information for you.
This is a pretty good resource, especially for people struggling with an autoimmune disorder and seeking help through functional medicine.
There are a few inconsistencies, and occasionally the advice isn’t backed up by solid evidence–which she points out herself, so it’s not like she’s trying to sell snake oil. One of the biggest risks is that you might read this and think you’ve got even more disorders than you thought you had to begin with. For that reason, I recommend using this book in conj This is a pretty good resource, especially for people struggling with an autoimmune disorder and seeking help through functional medicine.
For that reason, I recommend using this book in conjunction with seeing a functional medicine practitioner, and not trying to diagnose and treat yourself with the advice in the book alone. I am not disappointed! I’m using this digewtive as a reference to holistic and herbal remedies and other methods of developing an individual program of digestive well-being. Lipski’s explanations of digestive diseases and self-care practices are worth downloading the book!
I have a remarkable duo, here. Sep 06, Sam rated it it was ok. I felt instructions were slightly useless.

Review from a nutrition student: This book is great! It offers a plethora of information and detail, which I love and really look for in this genre of books.
Causes, symptoms, and lupski, and the mechanisms of each are all included. It is such a great source for all digestion-related health and disease information, which is of course related to so many other health problems. Essentially a textbook, but so much better because it has room for all the things a textbook may not, and the author’s Review from a nutrition student: Essentially a textbook, but so much better because it has room for all the things a textbook may not, and the author’s excitement bounces off the page and makes the information that much more interesting.
Jun 21, Astrid rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: A well-written, enjoyable, at times humourous book about digestivve digestive system and how to keep it healthy. Introduces basic concepts about food and anatomy first, then delves into specific health concerns and how to care for them using nutrition and supplements.
