For those who want to learn about how diet and one's digestive tract can impact one's overall health then this book is an absolute must. 'Digestive Wellness' does an excellent job explaining all the intricacies of the digestive tract in a very understandable way. We learn about how certain areas can go wrong and lead to a cascade of problems, even chronic illness. The author then recommends a course of action for those suffering from these illnesses. Although the author strongly promotes natural treatments she is not against conventional medications at all. She thinks the two can work together. This book enables one to speak intelligently with one's doctor about potential natural treatments, either on their own or complementary to conventional treatments.

Bottom line: I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is well worth paying full price for it.

I am a nurse practitioner and I found this book extremely helpful. I tried the suggested peppermint oil, and enzymes and my digestive disturbances have completely resolved already. It is user-friendly, informative and comprehensive. I will use this book a lot in my practice.

I think this book is an excellent overview of the latest information relating to digestive health. I give it a big bonus for covering things that most doctors don't even know yet or give you an attitude about if YOU know it and they don't - for instance fibromyalgia's link to gut issues and autoimmune diseases. Most doctors my friends, family and myself have encountered are woefully and pathetically behind the times when it comes to digestive health, even saying that digestive health has nothing to do with the rest of your body. Those doctors are a danger to your health and well-being.
Notwithstanding the book's excellent information, I continually experience frustration with the index. Case in point- I want to look up 'enema' so I go to the index and it is not there. However in reading the book enema is mentioned at least once, on age 305, where it discusses 'butyrate enemas.' It would have been a lot easier for me if this was included in the index instead of having to thumb through the entire book scouring for a certain word.
However I still recommend this book. It puts together tons of useful information that took me hours or even weeks of scouring the internet to find. It is very current and up to date.

I want to add that my review covers the LATEST edition at the time of this review- 4th edition, copyright 2012. Many of these reviews on here are for previous editions.

This easy to read guidebook is a wonderful resource that provides everything you need to know to "heal the gut.". Dr. Lipski's advice works, as it's based on scientific research as well as wellness teachings that have been around for hundreds of years. As a functional medicine practitioner, I keep a copy of this book in my office and recommend it to all my patients who suffer not only from digestive disturbances, but from inflammation, chronic pain or emotional issues.

It is so informative and so true. I am a nurse and I studied from a book almost like this one. Very detailed and explains everything. Having had trouble with my liver and digestive system, someone suggested I get this book and read, follow the instructions and I could see results real soon. It has been very helpful

I really like this author. I bought the 3rd edition in book form years ago and even gave it as a gift. This 4th edition on Kindle is different, updated and equally readable. Great info. I've read dozens of nutrition books and this is in the top 2.
