Although our digestive systems evolved over tens of millions of years, in the last hundred years our food choices have changed drastically. Something's wrong with that picture, and our intestines are making us pay the price, with gas, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, and worse. This book, written by a respected gastroenterologist, presents sample dietary programs for the aforementioned problems and many more. It's all very straightforward and easy to follow and is based on the latest nutritional research. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Everywhere you look you will find books on the effect of diet on health, yet until now, none has detailed the role of diet in maintaining or achieving a healthy digestive tract. In another essential book for consumer-health collections, Janowitz (Your Gut Feelings, LJ 9/1/87) outlines a reasonable low-fat, high-fiber diet and describes its role in maintaining digestive health. He also explains the mechanisms of digestion and the effect of diet on specific digestive disorders. Janowitz uses easy-to-understand language to sort through the hype and hoopla of the popular press to make explicit recommendations based on the latest medical research. Recommended for all consumer health collections.?KellyJo Houtz Griffin, Auburn, Wash.
