Firstly, it's a beautifully designed book, chock full of charts by the author detailing several digestive issues such as IBS, Crohn's disease, Celiac disease, GERD and more. Author Jacob explains the basics of digestion in the most complete manner I've ever read. Quotes such as this one by Hippocrates ("All diseases start in the gut") and this one by Heather Morgan, M.S., N.L.C. ("Every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it.") explain the purpose of the book. Jacobs, who has dealt with digestive issues speaks from personal experience and strives to show the basics of digestion--what goes on in the gut--and what happens when digestion goes wrong. Charts showing food allergies and intolerances, a description of short-chain fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPS)--what they are and why to avoid, along with descriptions of small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and the foods that can cause a reaction are all shown in comprehensive yet simple-to-understand text and charts. Almost every digestive issue can be found with details of the why it occurs and how to minimize the problem through diet and restriction is given.
Chapter 4 is devoted to nourishing foods with tables to measure and monitor your own health. Here, Jacob explains the micro-nutrient balance between fats, carbohydrates and protein and gives a list of safe vegetables and which to buy organic. You will learn about probiotics, safe natural seasonings, and which fluids to enjoy and which ones to avoid.Read more ›
Then Aglaee announced her upcoming book release and i will be honest, I thought for a moment, "What more could I learn in a written book? I've already learned SO much from her/the group...Read more ›
This book explains why fiber actually makes things worse for me.
I tried it and started feeling so much better. I never did buy in that IBS was caused only by stress. I'm sure it makes it worse but it does not CAUSE it.
I wished I could find a doctor in my city that was a little more open minded about this so I don't have to be all the time...It's all in your head".
I hope this book helps you as much as it has helped me.
