“If you’re struggling with a chronic illness like digestive problems, autoimmune disease or adrenal and thyroid conditions, this book can change your life.

“There is a beautiful course correction afoot… In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe deconstructs the myth behind our war against germs, sheds light on why and how we are sick, and honors the ancient wisdom of healing that starts with the gut.” (Kelly Brogan, MD ABIHM, author of A Mind of Your Own)

Product Description

Doctor of Natural Medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome.

Do you have a leaky gut? For 80% of the population the answer is “yes”—and most people don’t even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis.

To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome.

In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern “improvements” to our food supply—including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains—have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it’s essential to get a little “dirty” in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil.

Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main “gut types” and offers customizable plans—including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations—to dramatically improve gut health in just thirty days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help readers restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.

This book is well worth the price. It takes me a long time to read books as I find myself wandering from chapter to chapter. Listening to this book, I could not pull myself away. I have a metabolic disorder and this book explains things a layman can understand. This helps me in understanding why my body is doing what it is. If you can go the price for the audio book, I would highly recommend it. If not pick up the printed or kindle version.

You will not be disappointed. It is time to get back to a simpler way of looking at lifestyle. Drugs are NOT the answer in many cases.

I picked up the book for my wife who has been suffering from stomach problems for months. After trying a variety of suggestions that didn't help she finally came across some literature on the Internet by Josh Axe. The problem seems to be that she was suffering from Candida, a condition caused by too much sugar and starch in the diet. His advice seemed to help and this prompted my purchase of the book for her. She is now feeling much better and plans to continue with the diet recommendations.

As usual Dr. Axe is bang on about nutrition and what Leaky Gut is and how it can be the root cause of many diseases out there. I myself have suffered with my health and an auto-immune disease so for me this has been a god-send. I have implemented most of his program and in just two months I've lost 20 lbs and been able to finally exercise the way I used to. I have more energy, sleep better, my moods are more uplifted and my brain a lot less foggy. If you are tired of being sick and tired or are looking to prevent disease then grab a copy of this book and give it a go. Check Dr. Axe out online as well. I purchased his leaky gut program and am so happy I did. I have access to all his videos and recipes etc.. and a private Facebook online community which helps so much.

On the downside, for people like myself who are already lean/underweight/athletic/etc the diet recommendations in Dr Axe's book are impossible. I gave it a good shot, spent much more on groceries, and still wasted away alarmingly in just a few weeks. I don't know how the sample meal plans are possible for anyone; they are basically herbal teas and brothy soups. I had hoped that Dr Axe, as a young and athletic man, might have more options for young and athletic men trying to heal leaky gut.

On the other hand, the information he has collected on gut health, the "eat dirt" philosophy, and all the related food science is excellent, cutting-edge material that is essential learning for those trying to improve their health and their understanding.

Very interesting book about a topic that is still often overlooked in mainstream nutrition. A lot of interesting insight. That being said, the book as a lot of claims which contradict many accepted facts in modern sciences. I would have no problem with that if the autour would support his statements with credible research (which he does a lot in the first few chapters but then not so much). He also stretches the conclusion of some research to match his own. In the end the book is good for the general idea but lacks scientific rigor.
