The Digestive Health Solution (Empower)

Your Personalized Five-Step Plan for Inside-Out Digestive Wellness


Benjamin I. Brown, ND

The Digestive Health Solution takes you on a journey of scientific discovery towards personalised, effective natural solutions for optimal digestive health. Stomach cramps, pain, bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation — collectively called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) — affect 1 in 4 people. People can suffer tremendously from these symptoms, which often are not simply a digestive issue but also related to severe fatigue, muscle pain, headaches, depression and anxiety. Remarkably, IBS symptoms are still considered an enigma with no known cause; but in fact extensive research has uncovered numerous ways to resolve them and enhance digestive health. This book explores the mind–body connection, food intolerances, gluten sensitivity, dietary changes and key issues in the digestive system and provides practical ways to transform your digestive health. It looks at research on popular natural medicines, sifting fact from fiction and uncovering evidence-based, safe treatments that can enhance your digestion and improve, or even eliminate, symptoms fast. Using a personalised approach you can then follow an easy five-step plan for quick symptom relief, improve your health from the inside out and enjoy better digestive health, for life. This new edition includes updated information on gut bacteria and parasites, the FODMAP diet, additives and preservatives and a diet summary table.
