Just as good for adult tummies as is for children's! Lot's of good basic information on how the gi tract works and how this can cause/affect other health conditions. It's funny because we spend alot of time on researching what kind of carseat to get or what type of educational activities are best for our child, yet we seem to not think twice about their gi tracts until it becomes a major issue. My child is recovering from autism thanks to lots of dietary research and the Specific Carb Diet(and help from all his therapists and teachers). This book seems to have a good overview of everything I've read. I'm recommending it to anyone I know who has gi trouble or autoimmune issues. Like any holistic type book it recommends all kinds of supplements, but I found that does not seem to take away from the book at all.

I am a nutritionist and I purchased this book with a home study test for professional continuing education credits from Helm Publishing. I have read 100's of books on nutrition and I would not have read this if I didn't get credit for it as it didn't strike me as anything new or innovative but I actually really enjoy it. I am a mom and I have a son who has issues with Thrush (he is two and I am still breastfeeding). The book did give some good tips on overcoming it. It was not a all inclusive list by any means and the author left out a possible cause of yeast (the reason my son has it) and that is metal toxicity. I know she can't cover everything but it is actually a really common reason for yeast and I was surprised it wasn't addressed.

Also in the book, she states, that until age 7 months, infants can't break down any sugar besides breast milk. At 7 months, they should be able to break down lactose but until age three no other sugars are digestible. She never expanded on what she meant by that. Does she mean kids can't break down fructose or sucrose, thus they should avoid them, or should they have enzymes to help. It was a really odd misplaced fact and I just wish she explained it better.

The other thing that I would have liked explained what she recommended to eat steamed green (daikon radish) daily. I guess I don't know why they have to be steamed. I know some caretenoids are better absorbed warm but I didn't know what this was all about.

I bought this book for my Grandchildren. I'm hoping their allergies will be under control. Dr. Lipski is well known for her reasonable cutting edge medicine.
