I read an excellent book recently that I want to share with you. Gutbliss by Robynne Chutkan, M.D. is an excellent review of digestive conditions and how to treat them naturally, along with many success stories from her patients who have followed the Gutbliss plan.

A conventionally trained gastroenterologist turned integrative, Chutkan embodies what I wish more docs would—she recognizes that when patients take their health into their own hands, they find the healing they were searching for. She experienced this firsthand with her daughter, and now works to empower her patients and readers to heal themselves with the Gutbliss lifestyle.

The book covers a range of digestive conditions and gives helpful solutions for each one. I was particularly impressed by her coverage of parasites and Candida, topics that are skirted far too often by mainstream medicine. She also covers leaky gut syndrome, another topic I hear about too infrequently from medical doctors.

Dr. Chutkan explains the root causes of bloating and gas, offers steps to alleviate symptoms, and outlines a nutrition and exercise plan for optimizing gastrointestinal health. Research-based and gimmick-free, Gutbliss will provide a fascinating trip down your gastrointestinal superhighway.

If you are suffering from bloating, indigestion, constipation and other gastrointestinal ailments, you will find the book to be a valuable read. Her diet recommendations differ somewhat from my own, but they are still sure to help many people seeking better digestion through better eating habits.
