Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Healthy Gut Workbook is extremely informative and easy to follow. It's a must-read for everyone who wants to improve not only their gut health, but their overall health as well."
—Adam Perlman, MD, MPH, FACP, UMDNJ Endowed Professor of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey



"From one of America’s master teachers and an authority on integrative health, Victor Sierpina, The Healthy Gut Workbook is one of the most accurate and concise guidebooks on gastrointestinal health to appear in years. Filled with good science and good sense, this book takes the mystery out of functional integrative medicine, one of the most important approaches to health of the past decade. Let Dr. Sierpina be your guide to superb gastrointestinal health!"
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions



"Dr. Sierpina, one of the nation’s most respected integrative medicine experts, has done all patients with bowel problems a huge favor by writing this clear, simple, and accessible manual outlining the most important elements they need to know to take charge of their health. His extensive clinical experience and very user-friendly writing style make this self-assessment tool a pleasure to use. An important contribution to patient literature on bowel dysfunction."
—Woodson Merrell, MD, assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Columbia Medical School and author of Power Up

After suffering for years with repeated episodes of diverticulitis, complete with E.R. visits, high fever and excruciating pain, my doctor advised surgery. I became aware of Dr. Sierpina's holistic approach to healing digestive ailments. After following the advice he gives in this book for diverticulitis, I avoided a repeat occurrence for a year, until travel interrupted the high fiber and supplement regime. By immediately resuming high fiber and his other supplement recommendations, the inflammation quickly resolved and I was able to avoid the antibiotics and pain meds. It is wonderful to know that choices I make can keep me pain-free and healthy!

Dr. Sierpina's holistic, integrative, practical, self-help advice will bring great relief to readers suffering from gut issues ranging from heartburn and reflux to constipation to IBS and Crohn's disease and hemorrhoids, and more besides. I'm giving copies to family members who suffer from digestive health issues, and to our Internist who encourages his patients to practice good self-care.

I have finished reading Dr. Sierpina's The Healthy Gut Workbook and four words come to mind: enjoyable, practical, empowering and comprehensive. First, it is enjoyable in that with discussion of a medical issue, especially one involving the gut, the materials can be as dreary as the condition. With this work you have section headers such as "Ode to the Gut," "up the down escalator" and many others Sierpina-isms that keep the read pleasant and positive.

Practical and empowering are also key themes emphasized throughout the book. In sections like "Your gut: an owners manual," "How to take a probiotic," "Getting stress under control," and patient cases, Dr. Sierpina makes it clear that everyone has the ability to better understand and heal their gut.

Lastly, many gut/GI articles and books looking for the one mechanism or treatment. This book takes a refreshingly integrative and functional approach to the topic. It is comprehensive in that it takes a balanced approach to conventional and complementary treatments (such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and dietary supplements). I also love the comprehensive discussion of issues often ignored in gut disorders including: stress and how to manage it with mindfulness and other techniques; the importance of exercise and total gut health including controlling inflammation.

I would recommend to anyone who is looking for better understanding and self-management strategies for gut issues in an easy to read format. I would ALSO recommend to my medical colleagues looking for a handy reference to help them weave through the maze of gut disorders while providing support materials to their patients. It is a rare book that can do both but this book has done it.

Dr. Vic's Sierpina's The Healthy Gut Workbook describes excellent information on cycles of digestion and elimination and the impact and influence of both internal and external events such as stress levels, exercise, sleep, and nutrition on the gut. It is one of the best books addressing gut conditions such as heartburn, ulcers, IBS, constipation and more. In this informative and well-organized book you will find everything you need to create step-by-step lifestyle actions for a healthy gut including preventive and integrative medicine that lead to greater health and wellbeing.

I have read Dr. Sierpina's latest book and would highly recommend this workbook to anyone interested in preventing or treating gastrointestinal problems. Dr. Sierpina has collected many helpful treatment options for various gastrointestinal issues and made them approachable and spread his brand of humor throughout this workbook.
He has included conventional as well as integrative ways of addressing various complaints.
The tables that follow each chapter are concise and most helpful.

In my clinical practice, "gut" conditions are commonplace and rarely do I find a source, like The Healthy Gut Workbook, that is helpful in clinic as well as an excellent resource for patients. It nicely brings together all aspects of healthy eating, including wisdom from integrative and functional medicine, and up-to-date research and gastrointestinal references, and it provides interactive activities to help us learn about our GI tract and relevant habits. I'm sold; this is "the" resource book for patients' common GI conditions.

I thought this workbook was comprehensive, enjoyable (even entertaining!) to read, and helpful for troubleshooting common GI problems. I followed Dr. Sierpina's suggested Elimination Diet and discovered a pesky gluten sensitivity that I may not have found otherwise. Overall I'm very thankful for this workbook and will certainly reference it many more times in the future! Very helpful for grocery list-writing!
