From the Back Cover

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 weight, chronic pain, and allergies to heart disease, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and depression.

In Clean Gut, Dr. Alejandro Junger explains how instead of treating symptoms as they arise, we can preemptively attack disease before it takes root in the gut. No matter your current state of wellness, the Clean Gut program will put an end to everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and help you achieve true, long-lasting health.

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.

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.

I guess it depends on where you are coming from and the level of understanding you already have about gut function and its role in health as to how useful you will find this book. If you are at the start of your gut healing journey, this has some good and clear explanations of where gut health fits in functional medicine and nutrition. I must be honest, I felt he waffled on too much about his own experience, driving things home a little too hard for my liking. I thought one example of each point would have been sufficient. I guess the problem is that some of what he was saying was relying on his on anecdotal evidence rather than scientific research so there is a need to offer plenty of background instead. Where there is not enough explanation is actually in the diet itself. He doesn't spend enough time explaining why some foods are in and some are out, the effects of sugars, what changes to expect physically and emotionally and how to tackle those with tweaks to the program etc all needed a bit more detail, in my opinion.
My view is that a more rounded introduction to this subject comes from Dr Susan Blum in her book The Immune System Recovery Plan. Both books are actually pretty complementary and if you don't feel the need to do anything really full-on like GAPS or body Ecology, Clean Gut will be a great way of setting you on a path to better health.

My son has an auto immune disease and as a nurse and nutritionist I have tried various natural ways to improve his health but this approach is a total breakthrough. It isn't until you can heal the gut, remove the triggers of inflammation and find the optimal nutrition to help you maintain gut health that you can make continuous progress. Thanks for a brilliant book and The Clean Eats book to make the transition easier.

This is a well written boook. The author seems to know what he is talking about. I will follow some of the principles that he explains, however some of it is very hard core and I would find it a prohibitive diet to follow.
