Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eastern medical traditions place great emphasis on the importance of healthy digestion to overall health and well being. In the modern world, it seems more people than ever are suffering from allergies or intolerance to more and more foods. While there are aisles and piles of digestive aids we can turn to for symptom management, they generally do not address root causes of digestive disorders. Nadya Andreeva helps us explore possible root causes and how to improve our health through improving our 'bellies'."  
Dr. Claudia Welch, DOM, author of Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life.

"I could not be more in line with Nadya Andreeva's message in her book, The Happy Belly Guide. Indeed, the state of the gut is the state of the body at large.

From the Inside Flap

Nadya Andreeva a certified wellness coach professional trained in mindful eating and having worked with hundreds of women on improving their health through better digestion, guides you through the process of analyzing the habits behind poor digestion and offers step by step guidelines to create new habits around food, eating, and relating to one's body.
 
Digestion is a cornerstone of health. The state of your digestion determines the health of each cell in your body, including blood cells, muscle and nerve cells, neurons produced and hormones created. Without an efficient digestion we can't hope for a strong immune system, a flat stomach, efficient elimination of toxins, a positive emotional health and vibrant energy. Happy belly guide is about achieving optimal digestive health that creates vibrant energy, clear mind and a healthy weight without calorie-counting, diet foods, or restriction.
 
The goal of the book is simple: To serve as a resource that you'll use again and again, whether you need inspiration, information, or a belly soothing tea recipe.

More About the Author

Nadya Andreeva is a certified wellness coach, author & mindful living specialist. Professionally trained in mindful eating, yoga, and positive psychology, Nadya helps women create a healthy relationship with food that honors their body's unique chemistry and eliminates bloating and irregularity.

She is the host of YouTube show Ayurveda For Life http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnHgtzE6S9s&list=PLohfvtv88crr1j65_v9s8jFgpietDwaGq. She also leads seasonal detox programs for Yoga Journal Russia with over 6,000 participants in each season.

Nadya's book, Happy Belly: A woman's guide to feeling vibrant, light, and balanced is a go-to resource for women to prevent and eliminate bloating and constipation.

Nadya believes that vibrant health, energy, and inspiration are hard to achieve without a healthy clean gut. Our digestion is responsible for the health of each newly built cell, nervous system, hormones, blood. Without properly absorbing nutrients and efficiently eliminating the waste, we are likely to feel drained, have cravings, lack energy, and hormonal imbalances.

A smoothly working GI tract brings lightness, clarity, and a sense of inspiration. I love helping women to shift from feeling heavy, stuck, bloated, and afraid of food to an empowered position where they are able to choose foods that address unique needs of their body, and create a daily routine that leaves them feeling grounded yet light. Happy Belly will give women tools to understand unique needs of their body and help it stay balanced.

Nadya has been featured in various media including Huffington Post Live, Yoga Journal Russia, Glamour Magazine, Veria Living, and Ted Talks.

I have been on a self-discovery and lifestyle improvement journey for the past several years. During this time I have come across different challenges on habits I have and my relationship with food to figure out how I can heal and have a happier lifestyle. I realized there are so many things involved in creating a healthy digestion and it is definitely a journey, filled with many experiments. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Happy Belly Guide because it touches upon all of the necessary components of life that affect our well-being. There are many books out there but reading all of them can be time consuming, while Happy Belly sums up the most important things we need to focus on and the key is to stay mindful throughout the whole process. There are some wonderful ideas I have learned from the book and I have started to incorporate in my own lifestyle.
Here is what I have learned and has helped me the most from reading Happy Belly:

1. Developing food sensitivities have a close relationship with my cravings but my body has the extraordinary power to heal, so I can enjoy them again instead of completely restricting myself from what I love.

2. Gaining a new perspective on nourishing my body and listening to what it needs. The more love, care and appreciation I show for it NOW, the more it supports me and guided my life in manifesting miracles, beyond what my mind can see. This has helped me feel more grounded and emotionally balanced.

3. Happy Belly offers great insights about the quantity of food we eat, and despite what is labeled as'healthy', if consumed in large quantities it can still make us feel sick.

The same stuff that you can find in thousands of similar books and Internet articles. I haven't found one single new creative thing. All over the book how bad American people eat, a lot of references and quotes to confirm the obvious facts. Who doesn't know now about combining, gluten and dairy sensitivity? You don't have to buy a book for this, you can just read an article on Yahoo. I am interested in ayurveda and thought could find something new. It was a brief section on it, just all general words... And the tone is lecturing and advising do this and do that as if written for the kindergarten kids. Very disappointed!

Format: Paperback
Unfortunately, this is not what i expected. In the book intro Nadya should've mentioned that this book is not for people who have some knowledge of digestive health and are looking for additional, new information (no, i am not looking for scientific encyclopedia, but still...).

This book is more like an Idiot's Guide to eating habits, very, very basic...and as several reviewers mentioned it doesn't add any new info to what is already available on the market. I think some tables that are included in the book could be useful, but overall this book looks more like a compilation of her blog entries, which you can read for free.

I got irritated by the word 'bloating', which is mentioned i think at least 100 times in this book, the author is really fixed on bloating, it seems to be her primary focus. This book is about everything and is about nothing, in fact, Nadya admits this in her book intro- it meant to provide a conversation with a girlfriend, and as we all know, not all girlfriends have credentials in nutrition.

Full disclosure, I attended the Happy Belly book launch party and got the book at her event, not from Amazon as I usually would've. I love her book, it is so full of really easy to understand explanations of what might be happening to our bodies, the choices we make and possible reasons why. Why we can "suddenly" feel uncomfortable in our belly and what we can do about that on a daily basis to minimize or avoid those situations completely. I've been trying to get myself on track for a little while now, and her blog has been so helpful and a joy to discover and savor. I especially appreciate her down to earth, gentle and supportive personality infused throughout! I'm really interested by Ayurvedic principles now and am grateful that her blog doesn't " push " vegan or vegetarian lifestyles. I prefer her recommendation of really listening to what "your own body " needs to feel optimally healthy and happy ! Luckily the Happy Belly book teaches us how we can do that! Yaaay!

March 24,
I was wrong, partially, about loving the book.
Let me explain. In my first review, I was on a high, sort of... Excited from the launch party, great food, friends and seeing Nadya ( radiant ! ) in person, I devoured the book immediately, like kids on Christmas Day!
Since then, I have been re-reading " Happy Belly " but this time, mindfully, taking the time to fully " digest" what the author is saying. My advice, if you have a tendency to skim or speed-read, Don't ! not with this book, you may miss the many pearls of wisdom woven throughout and that would be a true loss! If you are ready to make some real changes and willing to let Nadya guide you through the process, you may very well start to fall deeply in love with your new healthy vibrant self! How?
