Product Description


""Clean Gut" is amazing. This comprehensive programfits perfectly with holistic, empirical and time-tested nutritional andspiritual methods for bringing the micro-biome, our internal micro-community, back onto our side to sustain a blissful life." --Robert Thurman, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Buddhist studies, Columbia University, Co-Founder, Tibet House

Product Description

In Clean Gut, Alejandro Junger, M.D, New York Times bestselling author of Clean and creator of the world-famous Clean Program, delivers a complete toolkit for reversing disease and sustaining life-long health.

All of today’s most-diagnosed ailments can be traced back to an injured and irritated gut. The gut is an intricate and powerful system, naturally designed to protect and heal the body every moment of every day  And yet for far too many of us, this remarkable system is in disrepair, which leads to all kinds of health problems—from extra pounds, aches and pains, allergies, mood swings, and lack of libido, to heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, and depression.

But we no longer have to be sick to get healthy. In this groundbreaking program, Alejandro Junger, M.D. explains how instead of treating the symptoms as they arise, we can preemptively attack disease before it takes root in the gut.

No matter your current state of health, you will benefit from this program: Clean Gut will help you put an end to everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and achieve true, long-lasting health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating information 15 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've read both Clean and Clean Gut and the content is very different. Dr. Junger goes into far more detail about our digestive system, gut dysfunction, autoimmune diseases, infertility and depression in Clean Gut. I was surprised to learn that there are more foods allowed on the Clean Gut version that were not a part of Clean; a few nightshades, (such as tomatoes), lentils, grass fed meat and eggs. Last year I had tried Clean and loved it but eventually fell back into my old ways. Especially with my coffee/tea, dairy and the occasional wheat product. When Clean Gut came out it inspired me to try again. All I can tell you is how fantastic I feel after doing this program. I gave up caffeine, sugar, dairy and grains completely. Once I got past the first week it was like I was a whole new person. Now my skin is clear(eczema gone), my eyes are brighter and I have new energy. Plus I lost ten pounds. Despite the fact that he gives great detail on how to reintroduce the toxic triggers I feel a bit worried about consuming the foods that make me feel terrible. I know for a fact that wheat is the absolute worst offender (I get extremely ill and won't go into gory detail) and sugar makes me cranky, so I plan on going with this plan for as long as possible. There are terrific recipes provided, if a craving strikes the cocoa smoothies satisfy completely.

If you're someone who can't give up rubbish foods this isn't for you, but if you're interested in renewed energy and feeling your best I highly recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that different from Clean 3 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise is great - our health and well being take daily nourishment from our gut ecosystem. When it flounders due to poor diet and toxins in our environment our whole health suffers in time, often inexplicably.

The literary style is adequate for the subject matter, although a lot of the seven introductory chapters seem to ramble on too much with personal woes and the trials and tribulations of the author's life. As an aside, I could find no mention of an editor in the credits. I kept finding myself wondering when the author would stop talking about his life story and start talking clearly about the subject matter - achieving a clean gut. After three chapters, I got so bored I jumped to the programme itself which is a set of shake recipes and meal plans.

I did go back and read the skipped chapters, however although it was useful background information it felt as if the author had missed a trick to motivate the reader with this information.

It's a shame there is little empirical evidence in the book for such an important proposal - to change your diet so dramatically beyond the letters from those who've completed the programme and a handful of case studies.

As with a lot of books with a solid premise and little substantive preface, the seven chapters before the programme is introduced would have been better trimmed to two or three, with more emphasis on how to implement the programme, a basic shopping list and an idea of how much this programme costs to put into practice. Reading about the programme I couldn't help but wonder how a busy doctor, like the author himself in the earlier part of his life, would have managed to shop for these ingredients and put the programme into practise.

3.0 out of 5 stars healthier lifestyle 29 Dec 2013
By pg tips
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book identifies changes to areas of my diet that make sence. There is a lot of reading which I glossed over, but the key information is clear from the text and the recipies. I generally eat organic food when available and avoid processed package food. Since reading the book I have made a number of fundermental changes to my diet as suggested and only time will tell.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little OTT for me 7 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You really have to believe that your Gut is the root cause of disease to get into this book.
While I enjoyed the interesting take on health and the elimination phase, it is quite a strict plan.
I followed it for 2 weeks and felt very well afterwards so in that sense I would recommend reading it - but do not expect an easy ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best health program I have ever come across! 10 Dec 2013
By DvB
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having read Dr Junger's 'Clean' book a few years back, I have found this book immensely helpful at giving me a better understanding of the important role the gut plays in our overall health. Dr Junger makes science understandable and clearly explains how most present day illnesses originate and develop, how our diet and environment affects our health and how a few simple changes in our daily diet can make such a monumental difference in achieving long lasting health. I can not recommend this book enough!
