From the Back Cover

The New York Times bestselling author of Clean offers a groundbreaking program to eliminate minor and major health problems—from extra weight, chronic pain, and allergies to heart disease, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and depression.

All of today's most diagnosed ailments can be traced back to an injured and irritated gut. The gut is an intricate and powerful system naturally designed to protect and heal the body every moment of every day. And yet for far too many of us this remarkable system is in disrepair, which leads to all kinds of health problems. We are sick and getting sicker. Chronic diseases are on the rise, and everyone we know seems to be suffering from something, getting tests done and taking over-the-counter or prescription medications. But we no longer have to be sick to get healthy. Dr. Alejandro Junger explains how instead of treating the symptoms as they arise, we can preemptively attack disease before it takes root in the gut.

No matter your current state of health, you will benefit from this program. We are all walking around with damaged guts, to different degrees suffering the consequences in our day-to-day and long-term health. The Clean Gut program will put an end to these everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and help you achieve true, long-lasting health.

CLEAN floored me and as soon as I finished the book a few years ago, I went on Dr Jungers cleanse. I was impressed by the breadth of clear explanation and understandable, logical science. Plus it worked. Even moi, the partial skeptic (after 40 years of carrot juice and raw beets), I felt like an improved me. The things he said about glowy skin and sparkly eyes were- surprisingly-true.
I kept looking in the mirror.
I was hooked and followed Dr Junger and his CLEAN TEAM online. I continued the cleanse a few times a year; and always with great support.
I didn't think it could get any better but then...Voila... CLEAN GUT upped the game.

I found it revalatory and read it cover to cover.

How wise and clever of Dr Junger to pinpoint the gut as the point of no return for wellness and illness. How clearly-elegantly even- he states his agrument.
It was intriguing to learn how our gut effects every cell in our bodies; either directly or indirectly. How it even has a mind of its own and is continually relaying electromagnetic signals all around the body. Amazing! And of course CLEAN GUT will an eye opener for so many readers as they discover that a diet of pills for a variety of symtoms, might not do the trick. That, for example, a skin rash, might be pointing to a gut disfunction, inflamation, and serious cellular imbalance. And that to achieve good health-one must take health by the scruf of the neck -in this case the gut- and give it a good shake out. Literally a clean up from the inside out.

He outlines the 4 parts of the gut and cogently describes the functionality of each.

Have been into health and wellness study since age 30 (I'm now 49), mostly due to depression, managed with Prozac and contrary to my healthy weight and cholesterol levels, I was vulnerable to viruses, had shingles, food poisoning, etc. with no good reason. I had lifelong symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome but just chalked it up to being a woman. Dr. after Dr. shrugged and said blood work revealed nothing. I always looked young for my age and every time I complained of extreme exhaustion, another round of tests revealed "nothing". I think doctors just saw the depression history and decided I was neurotic! I saw Dr. Junger on Dr. Oz and everything he said made scientific sense. I read the book and to sound like a ridiculous cliche, it changed my life. I am slender and it never once made me feel light-headed or dizzy like other "detoxes". I have felt so incredible that I am already on a lower dose of Prozac with the goal of getting off of it. My psychiatrist is blown away. My energy level is through the roof. My perimenopausal hormones caused recent anxiety and even panic attacks. All gone. I am still on the Clean Gut program and keeping a journal to learn which foods I am sensitive to and if they must be eliminated or eaten rarely. I am actually highly skeptical because there is so much bad science out there in the Integrative Medicine world, but Dr. Junger is my hero.

I've read a lot of nutrition books, been on many diets... all in an effort to fix my nagging health issues: migraines, arthritis, heart palpitations, nerve pain, constipation, anxiety, bloating, on and off again mild depression, psoriasis... you name it. I've also been about 5-10 lbs. overweight for several years and I just wasn't able to control my eating (I am a pastry chef). I just got so fed up with our medical system... giving me antidepressants for my constant headaches (15 days out of the month on average) that may have worked short term, but then stopped leaving me with unwanted weight gain and severe withdrawal symptoms. Doctors were just always trying to put a bandaid on things with prescription drugs. Never did I really stop and think, "why"? or "could it be something I'm doing"? If I did, I just couldn't figure it out on my own. I blamed some of it on the Lyme disease for which I was treated for three years (thanks to my doctor refusing to test me saying "you don't have Lyme Disease"! and treating me like a hysterical woman. Then I saw Dr. Junger on Dr. Oz. I have really strong intuition and I heard myself saying "this is the answer!" It was truly an "aha" moment.

I read Clean (Clean Gut wasn't out yet) and immediately followed Dr. Junger's plan to detox and find out what foods were causing my symptoms. It became so clear what my triggers were because I felt so much better while I was on the plan. I found that after I went off of it in Orlando (impossible to eat healthy at Universal!) that my hands were hurting (I had not noticed my arthritis went away too on the program!), I had migraines, felt bloated, tired and just plain awful again. I had none of these nagging issues while I was on Clean!

An invaluable, life-changing resource. Gut dysfunction, AKA "Dirty Gut," is responsible for most of today's most pressing health problems, from depression and chronic fatigue to heart disease and autoimmune disorders. If our gut isn't clean, we have no chance of ever being fully healthy. Attacking these ailments at their source, before they pop up somewhere else, makes so much sense! Dr. Junger's Clean Gut program is an easy way to detoxify the body of all the processed foods and chemicals that lead to gut dysfunction AND, through the program's Reintroduction Phase, to figure out which foods do you the most harm. Repair and Reintroduce, two steps, one month. That's it. Brilliant. In Dr. Junger's words, "a clean gut equals a clean bill of health."
