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.

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.

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've suffered from GERD, IBS and FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis - many polyps that have to removed regularly [every 2 years] or will turn cancerous) my entire adult life. Over the years, I've been told to follow a low-fiber diet (during flareups), then a high fiber diet, then a gluten-free diet. I was getting very confused on when to do what. I purchased this book and had just started using the recommendations when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 45 years old. When I started treatment (surgery first), I halted this eating plan and immediately noticed a difference. I'm back now, trying to concentrate on the foods recommended here. The only digestive distress I am encountering is caused by chemotherapy, not the every day distress I had before. THANK YOU! When chemo is over, I hope to have this be my new eating plan to prevent color cancer or recurrence of breast cancer.

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

Listening to your body is important. Mine is telling me that I need help with digestion of animal protein. I'm only about 1/3 of the way through the book and have learned quite a bit already. I'm excited to finish it to see if I can fix all of my digestive issues.

I bought this at the suggestion of my Functional Medicine Doctor. It is full of amazing information, and its really easy to read. This would be good for anyone who has any type of intestinal issues, as the book goes through every step of digestion.

I am new to finding out about digestive imbalance as a cause of so many conditions. The author refers to the the digestive track as the body's second brain. I liked the organization of the book, the questionnaire at the beginning, and the end chapters on specific conditions. I am finding that this is a great reference book for your home library.
