Format: Paperback
I've been reading the newly released Digestive Health with Real Food by registered dietitian Aglaée Jacob, a copy which was sent to me for an honest review. Here's my take on it:

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.

I can remember hitting a wall with my own digestive health after multiple tests, appointments, suggestions, and supplements from my MD as well as naturopath. I found myself one night sitting down and googling my alphabet soup of suggestions i'd received "SCD, GAPS, FODMAPS, nightshades, Paleo-AIP" and hit enter...and the first site to pop up was Aglaee's Paleo Dietician site. Right there, in this one website were charts describing ALL those diets and morphing them into one real foods approach to gut health. I was mystified! How could this one person seem to "get" all my questions circulating in my head so easily? I knew she MUST have been down a similar digestive path if she knew that a person would so easily be comparing/contemplating all these diet avenues and feeling lost...and might be wanting a way to combine it all for an optimal shot at gut recovery. I found myself clicking around her site more and learning more and more and feeling more at ease. So i took a leap of faith and sent a message to this random dietician in Canada...only to wake up that next morning and have a message back! I quickly decided i'd like to work with her so joined one of her REAL Food monthly groups. Then, as i was gleaning SO much information from her each day within that group, she decided to start a Digestive Health with REAL Food online group and i knew that was the next logical step for me, I already knew real food/paleo quite well, but still needed more held fine tuning my gut recovery from SIBO. Month by month i learned more and more and took far greater strides in my health than i ever have before.

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...

Great Book! I've have had IBS-C for almost 20 years. I have been to 4 GI doctors, tried every natural alternative I could think of and have had little relief. This is the first book along with Dr. Pimentel's Book, "A New IBS Solution" I bought (and I've bought many) that really made sense to me.

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.

I am so glad I came across this book, my sister is a nurse and we were both diagnosed with Crohns two years ago. She put herself on an elimination diet and with working at an allergy clinic, knows what to avoid and what to limit. She helped me with my diet as well and while doing some searching on FODMAPS, I came across this book and immediately ordered it. To break down so many food groups, digestion, different types of digestive disorders and supplements, I know I can be in control of my health and life! I love to cook and I don't see myself limiting what I eat, I see myself opening a door to a whole new lifestyle of amazing, REAL food. Since starting the elimination diet a month ago and slowly introducing foods again, I feel a huge difference in my energy levels, mental clarity, and overall digestion. Thank you for writing this, I've told so many people about it!
