From the Back Cover:

"If you seek to be more proactive and involved in your health care decisions, this well-written, understandable book is an important place to begin the process."
--Doug Wilmore, M.D., and Judith Shabert, M.D., R.D., M.P.H.

Not only is faulty digestion directly responsible for a large number of gastrointestinal disorders, it can be indirectly responsible for a vast array of seemingly unrelated illnesses including arthritis, migraines, and auto-immune diseases.

In Digestive Wellness, clinical nutritionist Elizabeth Lipski explains how your digestive system works and what can happen when it experiences complications. She covers all the common gastrointestinal disorders and offers her expert guidance on the newest advances in testing and diagnosis, nutrition, and natural therapies, including detoxification and self-care options for more than thirty common conditions.

Identify and treat digestive complications such as:

IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) · GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) · indigestion · gas bloating · constipation · celiac disease · hepatitis · inflammatory bowel diseases · and more

Digestive Wellness offers practical information that will guide you toward better health. This new edition is extensively updated to include:

  • New sections on hepatitis, cirrhosis, Barrett's esophagus, and Behcet's disease
  • The latest information on food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, probiotics, prebiotics, and the use of supplements and herbs
