The New York Times best-selling author of Clean offers a groundbreaking program to eliminate minor and major health problems - from extra weight, chronic pain, and allergies to heart disease, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and depression.
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. We are sick and getting sicker. Chronic diseases are on the rise, and everyone we know seems to be suffering from something, getting tests done and taking over-the-counter or prescription medications. But we no longer have to be sick to get healthy. Dr. Alejandro Junger 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. We are all walking around with damaged guts, to different degrees suffering the consequences in our day-to-day and long-term health. The Clean Gut program will put an end to these everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and help you achieve true, long-lasting health.

Say something about yourself!
I am very glad I got this book. I think it started a bit slow, and could have skipped the first 1.5 hours which is more about the authors personal story. But some might like the background stuff.
I am fairly self educated on healthy clean eating, and think what I heard here is solid and quality information. I think every-one, in the world, could benefit from the information provided and practicing the cleanse and re-balancing of the digestive system.
I googled the book and see he also has some You Tube videos, check them out first to see if you like his style. He also has a website selling a supplement program, but I was able to get enough info out of the book to design my own, since I dont live in North America I have to make due with what is available to me here.
All in all, a good book and worth a listen if you are looking to improve your health in a very real way.
The reader was difficult to understand. Also, additional scientific background would have been helpful. For example, the author states that eating many different foods in one meal houses fermentation in the gut and then proceeds to advise on which food should be consumed together. Why do certain foods ferment? Why do they move through the gut more slowly?
I've been looking for a book that I can recommend to family and friends so as to introduce them to my plight and hopefully tickle their interest. This book achieves this and will be buying copies for
It's a lot of the authors story . Very little knowledge shared which is a shame since the author sounds knowledgeable. It feels like one of those books that people create to promote their work and make the book because "they need a book " . You're better off reading the book the paleo code or something worth more substance
This book was very interesting. He describes issues I have been having for years and explains in relatively simple terms what is likely causing it. I'm going to try the program and see if it helps.
I enjoyed listening to the narration.
Yes, life changing.
This book is a breakthrough in health! Loved it! It's made me so much healthier and happier!
This book is mostly comprised of stories about the authors friends and patients and how the "clean gut diet" changed their lives. I was hoping for more factual information. I did learn a few things but it wasn't exactly what I was expecting
If you are interested in trying the Clean Gut Diet; you do get the PDF file with this Audible book which includes the list of supplements, foods you can and cannot eat, recipes etc. I plan to try it out next month. I read Gut by Giulia Enders and preferred it. Gut is more matter-of-fact information rather than personal story telling without a lot of scientific explanation
If you plan to read Gut by Giulia Enders, this book might be helpful to read first
Wish every book were written like this one. Easy to "digest", comprehensive, amusing but most importantly, Alejandro reads to all audiences (no need to know about medicine to understand his work)
"Worked for me better than paleo/AIP& GAPS"
Although the guiding principles of this book are similar to the paleo diet, the additional supplements recommended within the book and the vast array recipes (which actually taste good) I think makes this a must for those who are not seeing the results desired on other diets.
I have been paleo for 3 years and within the the 3 weeks of this diet plan I have made more progress than I have the last 3 years. Very happy
I had an interest in how the gut plays such a big part in our overall health and this book goes into exactly the extra level of detail I was looking for.
I'm keen to see how implementing the changes suggested will work for me.
Excellent information but failed to understand the authors pronunciation of words at times. Good though and thought provoking.
"was expecting more. didn't feel like I learn anyth"
fealt very disapointed and was not encouraged and only the two last chapters was ok.
"Simple, thorough and enjoyable"
This is the best book on the subject I have come across so far. I normally listen to audio books while I'm having breakfast or lunch. I found myself listening to this book even whenever I had a little time available. It has also given me a very good understanding of the nature of a condition that has been affecting me for years and has prepared me to make wiser decisions.
