Product Description

From Amazon

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.

From Library Journal

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.

Format: Paperback
This new book is long overdue for those of us with digestive problems who never know what to eat and are always trying to maintain good nutrition. The first part the book reviews the elements of a realistic, reasonable diet necessary for overall good health (chapters include "Is There an Ideal Diet?" and "The Do's and Don'ts"). The larger second part of the book, looks at digestive disorders and the role of diet in preventing, causing, or treating them, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and IBD (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis). The central question of the book is how to treat digestive diseases, like IBS or IBD, and still eat healthy foods? The section on food and IBD, includes advice about caffeine and alcohol, lactose and dairy products, fiber (when to take it and when to avoid it), vitaman supplements, food supplements, enteral nutrition, kidney stones in IBD, and more. Dr. Janowitz's dietary recommendations are practical and should help those of us with less than stellar digestive tracts to eat better and find improved health. A superb book and sure to be as popular as his previous books, Indigestion and Your Gut Feelings.

While Janowitz covers many digestive problems in this book, I was specifically interested in Chapter 12: What Should We Feed the Inflamed Intestine? Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease. He spends a great deal of time outlining a "low-residue" diet as well as a low-oxalate diet, both of which are purported to assist persons suffering from IBD. Since both diets are quite nutritionally sound, they are certainly worth trying and his discussion on lactose sensitivity is one of the most balanced I've read. With only one chapter pertaining to IBD, it might be more practical to request this book interlibrary loan rather than purchase it, but if you have other family members with other digestive problems, the other chapters may have increased relevance and applicability!

Format: Paperback
The author discusses the all-important food pyramid consisting
of fats & oils used sparingly, milk, yogurt, cheese (2-3 servings), vegetable soup (2-4 servings) and pastas/breads.
Nuts may be eaten to lower cholesterol. Approximately 70 grams a day of unabsorbed carbohydrates enter the colon absorbed by colonic bacteria. The absorption is into methane, hydrogen and
CO2. Antioxidants fight free radicals. The ideal diet seeks to
have the patient limit coffee and most alcohol drinks except for
an occasional wine.The book has value in the arsenal of weapons
in the health care reference library. I would supplement this work with research applicable to grains for celiacs and persons
who do not process grains efficiently in the body.
