Your Guide to Complete Digestive Health
A healthy digestive system is essential for total wellness, and digestive issues that cause discomfort and pain can seriously hamper our enjoyment of life.

In The Healthy Gut Workbook, you'll find a complete plan for restoring your body's delicate balance through gut-friendly meals, simple lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, and, if needed, medications and medical procedures. You'll learn which foods to add and remove from your diet to dramatically reduce your symptoms right away, and also discover a variety of strategies for maintaining gut health. No matter what digestive problems you suffer with, the healing solutions in this workbook will help you find relief.

•Gastritis and ulcers

"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!"
