From the Back Cover:

HEALTH / DIET

More than ninety million Americans suffer from digestive disorders, according to the National Institutes of Health, yet very few of us know where to turn for help and information.

Optimal Digestive Health presents the most comprehensive, up-to-date information and treatments available from both mainstream and alternative medicine for more than thirty digestive disorders--from seriously debilitating and chronic conditions to the occasional imbalances that can temporarily stop any of us in our tracks, including:

Reflux and heartburn · Ulcers · Candida · Fibromyalgia · Food allergies Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) · Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease Parasitic infection · Gallstones · Chronic constipation and diarrhea Diverticulosis · Colon and pancreatic cancer

Drawing on the advice and research of twenty-five top physicians and practitioners in the field of Integrative Medicine, the book begins with an overall evaluation of your current health and then explores the symptoms, possible causes, medical testing, and most effective treatments available.

The book helps you create an individual health program using diet, nutrients, medications, exercise, rest, and stress reduction. Optimal Digestive Health demystifies the use of herbal therapies, homeopathy, acupuncture, biofeedback, and Ayurveda in the treatment of digestive disorders. This approach pairs the best of mainstream medicine and complementary therapies with intelligent self-care for an integrated patient-centered approach to healing.
