Title: The Happy Gut Book Review
Post by: Barbara from New Jersey on January 30, 2016, 03:49:18 AM
I've just finished reading The Happy Gut: The Cleansing Program to help you Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Eliminate Pain, written by Dr. Vincent Pedre, MD.  This man practices as a Functional Medicine Doctor in NYC and suffered from IBS.  It is written in an easy to read manner with excellent explanations of how to improve your gut function.  The straight forward Gut C.A.R.E. (Cleanse, Activate, Restore, Enhance) is quite doable for people who embrace our way of eating.  His thrust is defining and eliminating food triggers, clearing the gut of unfriendly pathogens and then replacing them with healthy probiotics and nutrients (mainly food!) that help repair and heal the gut.  Even some simple yoga postures to aid digestion and normalize peristalsis are provided with instructions and pictures.  Recipes, recommendations for supplements by specific brand or type and many helpful hints of when and how to take them are provided. 

This book is highly recommended just for the general information, but also to give you the framework to resolve any gut issues you or your loved ones might have.  Between Dr. Pedre's own gut issues and those of his patients, you really benefit from his cutting edge tips of how to make your gut work better.
