More About the Author

Kathryn Marsden has been called a 'communicator supreme'; an author who is known for her easy, upfront and friendly writing style. She loves nothing more than to spread the word that good food is the root cause of good health and that getting the diet right doesn't have to be hard work. She hates extreme regimes with a passion and believes unwaveringly in balanced healthy eating but is also certain that one of the best sources of nourishment is a sense of humour.

Kathryn makes no bones about her unquenchable interest in all things digestive and bowel, especially if it farts, burps, bloats or belches - which is why she had so much fun writing the incredibly successful Good Gut Healing and its follow-up title Good Gut Bugs. In between getting excited about people's excreta, she's traipsed to many a far distant shore to present nutrition lectures and seminars on health and diet.

When it comes to getting the message home that eating healthily is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of a whole range of diseases, Kathryn is perpetually disappointed that good information is so poorly co-ordinated and given so little priority. "I think it's terribly sad that dietary advice isn't generally available at health centre and GP level," says Kathryn. "A patient might be advised to eat more fibre or eat less fat but that's usually about the limit of help. No-one gets referred to a dietitian until they have a condition which needs treating. People rely more on magazine and newspaper articles for healthy eating info than they do on their doctors. We all know there's a mountain of medical information and support available but the majority has to do with treatment of existing conditions, rather than trying to prevent illness before it begins. It's also the case that hardly anyone realises how powerful nutritional therapy can be in helping the body to cope with existing symptoms. Yet, it's all too easy to be completely confused by the conflicting array of nutritional advice that's out there. I'm so grateful that I was able to train in this field and have always believed wholeheartedly in promoting and sharing information about diet so that other people might benefit.

Since the success of her first series of articles in the late 80s and her first book in 1993, Kathryn has contributed regularly to a wide range of media including national, international and local press, magazines, television and radio. To date, she has written 14 books and is published in fifteen languages including Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Finnish, Spanish, Swedish, Indonesian and Arabic.

Format: Paperback
This health book has it all - It's easy to read, thanks to the author's friendly, humorous down-to-earth tone. It offers practical and achievable advice on how to improve so many aspects of our health. It explains things using really simple easy-to-understand language. All these things I would expect from a Kathryn Marsden book. However, this new book contains some really fascinating information about how probiotics have such a massive impact on our health. They don't just affect our digestion as I'd previously thought. The book reveals some very important new research on probiotics - it's great that the author has shared this information with us.

As a former client of Kathryns, I know just how much of her advice is truely helpful. This book could have been written for me! I love Kathryns books as they are written in a down to earth, matter of fact way, with a touch of humour added so as not to be too scientific. As I read her books I can hear her voice clarifying each point. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to improve their diet or health.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must-have for anyone with digestion problems or bowel conditions.Written in Kathryn's own inimitable, entertaining and quirky style, it is full of facts,anecdotes, information and useful advice on sorting out your gut problems.My partner is already well on the way to recovery after I relayed Kathryn's advice to him (you know men hate reading anything intelligent!)
I think this book should be heading for medical libraries across the UK - and specifically, GP surgeries- come on medics - take advice from books other than the BNF!!Well done Kathryn!!

Format: Paperback
This book is so easy to read. All the jargon is explained and with easy to follow instructions for different types of ailments. My only complain is that I had to go back over some of the stuff so ended up putting in post its to mark the pages of interest.
