or scientific background. It educates you about your digestive system is supposed to work, what can go wrong, what you can do about it, both preventive and if you are already ill. I have followed what I thought was a healthy diet for years, and some advice from this book, and motivation of understanding why, allowed me to fine tune, and start losing weight and feeling healthier already.
She does sell lots of other things, and she is more an marketer than a doctor, but her information is basic enough that her scientific knowledge is more than the average person needs to know. I read another book on the Liver by Melissa Palmer, and it talked down to the average person, and was a bit stiffer of a read. Dr Cabot truly caters to the public, and I highly recommend this book.
I gave the Healthy Liver and Bowel book (and the Liver Cleansing Diet) three stars because the information about the liver was well documented and important to learn. The caveat here regards impaired digestion; as long as our intestines are not functioning properly we cannot absorb the nutrients our liver needs. People with digestive disorders need a dramatically different approach.
I think Cabot is a good doctor and writer, but maybe needs to broaden her horizons. Excellent liver health CAN change our lives, but until my intestines heal, my liver starves.
I also ordered her other book, and keep them both as reference. Every book I've managed to read with the same subject matter and a newer publishing date has the same info in it--I'm glad I got it from the pioneer. I STILL can't find anything new under the sun for liver/gall bladder/kidney care!
