Book Description

Health begins in the gut. In addition to digestive disorders, many other health problems can stem from damage to your intestines, including migraines, skin problems, autoimmune conditions, and weight abnormalities, so tackling your digestion first is smart if you want to maximize your chances of obtaining optimal health. Beyond simply managing your symptoms, Digestive Health with REAL Food will teach you how to address the root causes of your digestive troubles to achieve optimal digestive and overall health.

The information in Digestive Health with REAL Food will help you build your own optimal diet by identifying the best foods for your digestive system: ones that are easy to digest, anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense, healing and low in irritants and allergens. The nutritional protocol in this book, developed by registered dietitian Aglaée Jacob, addresses numerous digestive problems, including:

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) | Crohn’s disease | Ulcerative colitis
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) |Fructose malabsorption
FODMAP intolerance | Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Gallbladder issues | Abnormal intestinal permeability (leaky gut)
Gut dysbiosis (gut flora imbalance) | Celiac disease | Non-celiac gluten
sensitivity | Multiple food sensitivities | And many more…

In addition to guiding you on how to successfully follow an elimination diet, Aglaée will teach you everything you need to know about dietary supplements, stress management, eating out, and travel strategies, as well as how to troubleshoot various digestive problems. The book includes over 40 recipes and meal/snack ideas plus helpful charts, food lists, and weekly meal plans to get started on the path to better digestion.

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to digestive problems, but the evidence-based, customized and holistic nutritional approach in Digestive Health with REAL Food will give you the tools to tackle your digestive issues and optimize your health.

5.0 out of 5 stars a dream come true! 19 July 2013
By A
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been suffering from IBS since the age of 15 and i'm 21 now. I feel like the most valuable years have been robbed from me. I've tried many different diets, different supplements but nothing seems to help. Doctors haven't taken me seriosly either, my doctor told me it's all in my head. At some point I wanted to die because no one understood what torture I was going through. Aglaeé Jacob gave new hope for me and this book really is a dream come true! Finally there is a book that MAKES SENSE and finally there is a certified dietitian who acctually knows what IBS/SIBO really means and knows how to treat it. Seriously, Aglaeé deserves a Noble price for this book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nutrition DREAM BOOK 12 July 2013
After waiting several months for this book to come out, I ordered it through Amazon and it arrived in less than 2 days. It is exactly what I had been looking for- A NUTRITION DREAM BOOK. Truly it is one of the best books I have read on nutrition (I am a dietitian).

It is written by a very well-researched and experienced Registered Dietitian who clearly knows her stuff, and shares it. This book not only goes back to the basics using sound evidence, it lays out simple explanations and dozens of bottom line tables and diagrams that are highly useful (especially for on-the-go mamas/professionals like myself who consider reading a sweet luxury). The tone of the book is informative, gentle, helpful, positive, and inspires hope. It is a great resource for clients, students, health and fitness enthusiasts, patients, healthcare providers, etc.

I have a solid Real Foods lifestyle foundation, and am making a few significant changes per the book's recommendations. Above all, I am further increasing healthy fats, avoiding the problematic carbohydrate foods, and am trying out the suggested timing of digestive supplements.

In 4 weeks of these changes, I have noticed a significant improvement in my digestion. About 85% of the uncomfortable "bum belly" symptoms are gone, a welcome sign that my digestion is beginning to normalize. Other areas of my health are improving as well (ie, dry feet 70% better- an unexpected improvement). I imagine that several more months of walking this path will lock-in the improvements and help recreate a healthy gut. I want to thank author Aglaee Jacob for her wonderful contribution to people's health!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an absolute must have for anyone suffering from mild to extreme digestive issues. All of the information you could possibly need is in here, you really don't need to look any further. The book is beautifully presented and it is now my digestive bible. I can't wait until the accompanying cookbook is released! Buy it, you wont'regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best real food healing book out there! 7 Nov. 2013
This book out of all of the ones I have read on digestive issues (Which I have), is the best I have ever read and I am currently planning my elimination diet to start soon which will heal my gut. I can't wait to get started, I also can't wait to purchase the follow up real food cook book which is soon to be released.
