Book Description

Aug. 12 2003

It's been said that health begins in the stomach. When digestion is not working properly, the whole body suffers. Skin rash, bad breath, headache, fatigue, overweight, and premature aging can all result from poor digestion-not to mention gastric disorders like heartburn, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome. But nearly half of digestive disorders can be averted with proper eating, exercise, stress management, and related lifestyle modifications.

In Natural Stomach Care, gastroenterologist Anil Minocha, M.D., combines the wisdom of traditional Eastern healing with the advancements of conventional Western medicine to offer a wide range of easy-to-use, affordable, and effective at-home natural therapies that can strengthen digestion, keep the colon clean and the bowels moving, and improve overall health. In addition to recommendations for overall digestive health, Dr. Minocha provides remedies for a host of digestive complaints. Treatments include healing Chinese herbs, Ayurvedic medicine, yoga, tai chi, probiotics, vitamin and mineral supplements, colon-cleansing techniques, and lifestyle changes, making Natural Stomach Care an innovative, integrative approach to digestive health.

4.0 out of 5 stars Natural Stomach Care - Book Review Feb. 11 2004
Digestive ailments, especially chronic conditions, are troublesome to millions of Americans. Without proper care and treatment, such ailments often reoccur and may persist for years. Dependence on prescription drugs for long periods of time can be difficult for many patients. An alternative to prescribed drugs for treating ailments of the stomach has been the application of "natural remedies." The "natural" alternative to traditional medicine has for centuries proven to be an effective cure for many stomach and digestive ailments. The use of "natural remedies" often eliminates for the user the need for drugs and possibly surgery. Dr. Anil Minocha, in his book, Natural Stomach Care introduces to the reader a wide range of easy-to-follow and effective therapies. Both the medical doctor and the layman will find useful the health information discussed in Natural Stomach Care.
It is surprising to learn just how many folk remedies are available to the interested person. Most of these remedies have been utilized around the world for hundreds if not thousands of years. All the material in this comprehensive discussion of the subject has been presented in a well organized and easy to follow format. The author first wants us to have an understanding as to how the body functions including the digestive process of food, the importance of restful sleep, proper daily nutrition, the reduction of stress in our lives as well as other factors which, when taken together, all contribute to a health life style. The author uses his many years of practice and research as a gastroenterologist to highlight the many factors that contribute to the wellness of the human body. Dr. Minocha corrects misconceptions that many people have held for years about the proper care and feeding of the stomach.

By A Customer
This superb guide proves that all sickness and health begins in the stomach and provides helpful and practical information with focus not just on healing but also prevention of sickness with the goal of positive health! it is easy to read and the text is just not for those with digestive disorders but also those with sensitive and nervous stomach. With over a hundred citations in the book, the information is timely and scientifically sound. While every chapter is loaded with useful info, I found chapters on "Power Nutrition" and "Age-defying gut" most helpful. The natural strategies including the use of "Power foods" and 'probiotics" are already working for me.
The book helps you find the right combination of nutritional and modern approaches that best work for you to relieve your digestive problems. It covers cutting edge research as well as breakthrough, natural approaches and secrets that only a gastroenterologist who has treated thousands of patients would know.
The book is certainly worth a lot more than the money spent on it, IT'S THE BEST-I feel like a new person.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and Informative Sept. 5 2003
This is indeed an outstanding contribution. Diseases of the stomch and intestines are widely prevalent and some say increasing. Dr Minocha covers this topic in an absolutely fascinating and informative way. Traditional western medicine has gaping holes in its preventative and therapeutuc armamentarium. This book addresses this issue in an holistic and easily understood way. The book is superbly written and edited. Our Walla Walla book group has voted this the best addition in 2003 addressing healthcare needs for the public. Read it and benefit
Best regards

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray! I think this is the best book of 2003 Sept. 8 2003
Yes, it worked for me..Covered all my questions with answers that were succinct , to the point and with great explanations. I especially liked the eastern approach. As a naturopathic physician I will be recommending this book to my clients with GI problems. Lots of practical tips on how to proceed in the most effective and least costly ways. I believe this contribution ranks among the best of 2003.
Just Great !...We need more similar books on other common topics such as arthritis and diabetes etc maybe the authors could help us out...Please

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent research, crystal-clear writing March 10 2004
I'm a full-time health writer, and after 15 years in the business I've rarely come across a book that so perfectly combines medical findings with practical, easy-to-follow advice. Dr. Minocha is clearly an advocate of alternative styles of medicine, yet he approaches his topic with the eye of a scientist. When I want to know what something does, how it works, how to use it myself--the answers are here. This book rarely leaves my desk, and I expect I'll keep using it as a reference for years to come.
