    This book combines principles from the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, GAPS, Autoimmune Paleo, Low-FODMAP and SIBO/Candida diets into a plan that covers pretty much every base for your digestive health. It recommends healthy fats, probiotics and fermented foods, and a plan for reintroducing fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds to find the best diet for you. It is pretty restrictive for the first 3-4 weeks, so I can't see the average Joe picking up this book and diving in.

It is pretty restrictive for the first 3-4 weeks, so I can't see the average Joe picking up this book and diving in. Even for the average IBS patient it might seem like too much - but if you're really fed up with your digestive symptoms (like I am) you'll probably be willing to give it a try. Even though she says not to, I did decide to make some minor tweeks to the first 3 weeks of the program, and we'll see how I do. Whether you decide to follow the full elimination and reintroduction plan outlined in the book or not, I do think this book would be useful for IBS, SIBO, Celiac, Crohn's and UC patients to at least read through. I can't speak to my results yet, since I only just started, but I'll update this review in a few months and let you know.

In our case, my husband has IBS, and this book goes against everything we have learned. Medical experts (his dietician) prescribed the FODMAPS elimination diet, which has worked miraculously for him, and the recipes so healthy and delicious, I cook them for the whole family. I thought this book, which had IBS in the title, would have some great new recipes for me to follow. Uh, no. After reading several chapters in disbelief, from saying giving birth by c-section or bottle feeding your baby will send you to bad-gut hell, I skipped to the recipes, and they were looking great, until Palio #101 recipes for mushrooms and cauliflower rice, etc: high FODMAP vegetables that make my husbands sensitivities flare. Mind you, we do live in Australia, and he did say gut health research is more advanced in Australia than North America. Ah-ha, I'd say so, if this is the offered fare... The first thing he did to get my warning bells going was his complete departure from evidence based practices, even going so far as to insult the medical profession. Dissing FODMAPS for IBS sufferers was second (read on for more). If you have IBS, and your medical experts have introduced you to FODMAPS, I highly recommend books by Sue Shepherd, Phd. The 2-Step Low FODMAP eating plan has a lot of useful information about foods that will irritate you and foods that won't, and why, and there are a lot of delicious easy to follow recipes that my whole family enjoys. These books have become our lifestyle, they work. Plus, you can google High FODMAP foods to avoid, and Low FODMAP foods that are fine, and there are hundreds of options, unlike the 5 foods this author says he encountered during his FODMAP journey. The way this author disregarded FODMAPS was what immediately put my back up with his alternative health advice. Stay away. FODMAPS diet is actually very similar to Palio (Palio having endorced this "cookbook"), however FODMAPS looks a little bit further in how IBS sufferers intestines process certain fructose based foods. We did follow Palio for a time, before learning that certain staples like cauliflower, garlic and onion, mushrooms, etc, were a no-go. On the positive side, Palio recipes are a great way to supplement your FODMAP recipes, because they are generally gluten and dairy free. Providing you understand first what foods you still need to avoid, understanding how certain foods react in a sufferers intestines, and its really just a matter of substituting ingredients to make it safe (and pain free). IBS is incurable, but the right diet can make it manageable. Follow medically approved, evidence based practices, is what I'm recommending, from proven experience.

    I liked this book as a quick intro to a world I didn't know, but I agree with the reviews saying they go against some medical advices with not a lot of evidence, based only in the principle that it doesn't need to apply to everyone. Also the context, recipees and opinions are addressed to people eating lots of packed food. It doesn't really helps if you are used to mediterranean food or if you already cook your food, recipees are too basic, only a few, and I am not sure all of them are ok for th I liked this book as a quick intro to a world I didn't know, but I agree with the reviews saying they go against some medical advices with not a lot of evidence, based only in the principle that it doesn't need to apply to everyone.

It doesn't really helps if you are used to mediterranean food or if you already cook your food, recipees are too basic, only a few, and I am not sure all of them are ok for the purpose they are intended. Nevertheless it helped me a lot to get a view on what happens to me as it describes many symptoms to help identify what happens into your body.

    The most comprehensive book I've seen on digestive health. I'd love to see doctors read this and become more educated for their patients, but the truth is, we have to take our health into our own hands. It's why our family has been using Young Living essential oils. Aglaee's recipes are simple (expected on an elimination diet). Her Carrot Treat is like dessert! I'm looking forward to trying the Lemon Butter Sauce, Coconut Oatmeal, and Avocado Mouse. The most comprehensive book I've seen on digestive health.

    Written by Rachel M. on Jan 29, 2021 I checked out this book for recipes for someone suffering from Ulcerative Colitis. The table of contents lists 3 pages on UC. Two of those pages are exactly the same: "Testing Options for Various GI Conditions" and on each of those two pages, the UC info is one word "colonoscopy" Many of the recipes include foods that the doctor and several reliable sources advise to avoid. I advise to avoid this book if you have UC. Written by Rachel M. on Jan 29, 2021 I checked out this book for recipes for someone suffering from Ulcerative Colitis.

    Excellent textbook for all things "gut". The most intense but most effective protocol I have ever used with patients for gut healing. Very thorough resource. Lots of recipes too which is a nice bonus. I have made her gelatin gummies many times. (I just wish the book was a bit more colorful and interactive. It is very textbook-y.)

    With this book as a guide, I was able to turn my (digestive) life around. By following the elimination diet, I discovered which foods I was having trouble with and started to feel better than I had in years.

    I read the companion cookbook before this book. Unsure whether overlap exists, a couple recipes caught my attention here: Muffins of carrot and muffins of salmon. The chapter titles are: Introduction -- My story -- The basics of digestion -- When digestion goes wrong -- Diet to the rescue! -- Nourishing foods -- Design your own diet -- Supplements -- The mind-body connection -- Living life-- eating out and traveling! -- Troubleshooting -- Recipes -- Meal plans.

As a bonus, the reference are divided by chapter and further divided by subject. This makes it very easy to find deeper sources. My take-away points come from the supplements chapter: Fermented cod liver oil (vit-A + vit-D + omega-3 PUFA), pastured chicken eggs (vit-D + more), and B12 are probably a good idea for me. I would have liked some more detail (but I can see how easy this could stretch one book into several volumes). I feel the vit-D section (of personal interest for living too far from the equator for year-round sunshine) was great in showing different sources and excellent for giving exposure durations according to amount of skin exposed and latitude.

    From making your own coconut milk to preserving herbs this book is packed with great information and attractive pictures. As always, I stress a visit to your local GP before adopting any diet or a change in diet just in case. Medication, IBS, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, all affect your digestive system and require special diets. There are a few meat dishes but overall just a flip through this book made me hungry. It boasts 100+ recipes all grain, gluten and allergen free.

    This book was amazing. It helped me to understand how all the different foods in my diet may be affecting my digestive health and autoimmune symptoms. I've decided to implement the elimination diet she describes in the book, and almost a month in, it's wonderful to feel like I'm regaining my health. I am actually rereading the book right now, taking detailed notes, so that I can make sure I'm proceeding with my diet in health in the smartest way possible. Five stars, highly recommended to anyone This book was amazing. It helped me to understand how all the different foods in my diet may be affecting my digestive health and autoimmune symptoms.

    Didn't actually finish this yet - I'm not able to follow the instructions because of the severity of my digestive issues, but hope to pick it back up again sometime down the road... It's a very informative book with a lot of detail, but like many other paleo books it's been impossible for me to actually follow the prescribed diet because of the specific issues and restrictions I'm dealing with (specifically severe intolerance of fiber and complex carbs).

    An excellent, broad introduction to elimination diets. Also very glad the author doesn't try to foist 10,000 supplements on the reader; instead, real food is emphasized. Worth reading alongside your other illness-specific books. An excellent, broad introduction to elimination diets.

    It was pretty factual and had some good ideas. I like the start from scratch method when it comes to your diet, so that you can know what your body will tolerate but I do not really buy the Paleo diet. I think that there is nothing wrong with eating grains.

    This book was right in line with what I was hearing from my doctor, and my gut. But, it allowed me to keep referring back to the things where I had questions about supplements, diet, conditions, etc. Great information and easy to understand.
