This book combines principles from the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, GAPS, Autoimmune Paleo, Low-FODMAP and SIBO/Candida diets into a plan that covers pretty much every base for your digestive health. It recommends healthy fats, probiotics and fermented foods, and a plan for reintroducing fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds to find the best diet for you. It is pretty restrictive for the first 3-4 weeks, so I can't see the average Joe picking up this book and diving in. Even for the average IBS patient...more
I read the companion cookbook before this book. Unsure whether overlap exists, a couple recipes caught my attention here: Muffins of carrot and muffins of salmon.

The chapter titles are: Introduction -- My story -- The basics of digestion -- When digestion goes wrong -- Diet to the rescue! -- Nourishing foods -- Design your own diet -- Supplements -- The mind-body connection -- Living life-- eating out and traveling! -- Troubleshooting -- Recipes -- Meal plans.

As a bonus, the reference are divide...more

The most comprehensive book I've seen on digestive health. I'd love to see doctors read this and become more educated for their patients, but the truth is, we have to take our health into our own hands. It's why our family has been using Young Living essential oils. Aglaee's recipes are simple (expected on an elimination diet). Her Carrot Treat is like dessert! I'm looking forward to trying the Lemon Butter Sauce, Coconut Oatmeal, and Avocado Mouse.
Favorite nutrition book yet re gut health....even trumped Practical Paleo for me, which is saying a lot!
Lots of information, but the size o fthe book had me thinking cookbook, not research paper.
From making your own coconut milk to preserving herbs this book is packed with great information and attractive pictures.

As always, I stress a visit to your local GP before adopting any diet or a change in diet just in case.

Medication, IBS, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, all affect your digestive system and require special diets. There are a few meat dishes but overall just a flip through this book made me hungry.
It boasts 100+ recipes all grain, gluten and allergen free.

Easy to find local ing...more
Anyone looking to eat healthier, or who has digestive problems....READ THIS BOOK!!! This is THE most comprehensive informative book I have ever read. So many things I didn't know I didn't know! It's a lot of information (and you might not agree with all of it), but SOO informative. I don't know what else to say!

It was pretty factual and had some good ideas. I like the start from scratch method when it comes to your diet, so that you can know what your body will tolerate but I do not really buy the Paleo diet. I think that there is nothing wrong with eating grains.

She then decided to open her mind to other schools of thought and initiated an...more
