We went on a diet that focused on restoring intestinal balance, replenishing probiotics and reducing allergic reactions. Dr. Shahani was the man who first identified acidophilus and other probiotics and did a lot of research on intestinal health and this book is fantastic. I am a lay person, not a health practitioner, but I found this book easy to understand and comprehensive. It gave me a really solid understanding of the previously mysterious functioning of the intestines and their importance to overall health.
It also has really made me make sure that our diets always have live enzymes and beneficial bacteria and to recognize when we need to supplement our diets with probiotic capsules. My daughter's skin sometimes still breaks out, and we immediately start taking the probiotics, checking stress levels, checking her diet and making sure she has been getting enough sleep.
There is a fascinating section in the book on the effects of sleep on the positive functioning of the GI system.
Read this book. You'll never look at your stomach, your food, or prescription medications the same way!
