A few things that bothered me about his recommendations:
- Nutritional focus should include organic, grass-fed, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free animal products.
- Grains really aren't very good for you. They're nutrient-poor and converted to sugar in the body. In addition, many people are gluten-intolerant and grain-sensitive. There should be less focus on grains.
- There was no mention of functional medicine.
- Supplement recommendations were based on conditions rather than causes. There can be many causes to any condition.
- There were few possible causes of digestive imbalances mentioned, and there was little information on how to find the causes.
- Recipes comprised a full third of the book. I was looking for information on the digestive tract rather than a cookbook.
I recommend Elizabeth Lipski's "Digestive Wellness" instead.
