It is becoming more and more widely recognized that a healthy gut is crucial to all-round good health, a fact demonstrated by the growing interest in this once taboo subject. Many recent books focus on the fascinating workings of the digestive system. Improve Your Digestion is different. Much has changed since the first edition of the book was published and this is reflected in this wider and more in-depth exploration of the subject. In addition to the facts about how the gut works, it outlines how to address digestive problems - both simple and complex - and keep your digestion in tip-top condition.
Comprehensive yet practical and easy to follow, this book can benefit everyone, whether you simply want to keep your system in good shape; have one of the common digestive issues such as heartburn, bloating or constipation; or a complex condition such as IBS, leaky gut or inflammatory bowel disease. It is broken down into five parts: improving digestion, improving absorption (you are what you absorb after all), digestive problems and solutions, how to restore digestive health, and recipes for healthy digestion.
