Say something about yourself!
Where was this information 15 years ago? Even 5...how different my life could have been.
I've struggled my whole life with a myriad of health issues, unexplainable weight gains, constipation, brain fog, depression. Thyroid tests come back normal, blood work always fine.
Then, in my mid 30's I began travelling to other countries for 3 - 9 months a year and Every time I came back to North America, gained 15 - 30 lbs within two MONTHs.
No one could explain this to me, and I felt helpless and alone. I felt upset and tired.
Was this because I left my beloved travels behind? I was not over eating, what was going on? I did not know.
What I did know is within 2 days of getting back I had pain in my stomach and constipation that would not let up no matter what I did. I knew that our "perfect" tap water made me feel like throwing up. I knew that I did Not eat more - but I gained 20 lbs seemly overnight. My moods fell to say the least. This happened Five Times.
I now know where ALL of this stems from. Starting with the C-section that brought me into this world, the frequent antibiotics I've been on, and a grain rich North American diet. Recipe for disaster.
Understanding your gut, how to keep it balanced and healthy, the importance of what to eliminate and what to bring in - is Imperative for all of us.
Well filtered water, glutamine, good quality probiotics, fermented foods, proper vitamin supplementation....all this knowledge is here for us all and you deserve to be informed.
Now living back in Canada once again, and less than 2 months into the changes suggested by this and other similar "gut" books, I am dropping weight, sleeping better, feeling happier and more alert.
Get this book and listen to every word. If you hate it, return it.
But I really think it can help many of us, regardless of the health issue that has driven you to look at the reviews. Cutting the grains and sugars, and re-balancing your gut health will change your life.
On a final note - science is now proving that our gut cells fire more neurones as a form of communication, than our brains. Gut feelings? They are real. Keeping this part of us healthy really matters on so many levels.
Good luck all :)
A personal trainer referred me to Dr. Mercola's website a few years back and I have been hooked since. The info he provides is solid, its Not based on what's popular and "facts" are not based on the opinion of what some corporation paid for the "studies" to show.
Anyway - Mercola's stuff is in my opinion the most accurate and pertinent out there. He addresses many areas of importance with good information.
Worth a listen for sure, and all very important to know now.
