Publisher's Summary

Following the success of the best-selling books Clean Gut and Wheat Belly comes this essential guide to improving digestive health from an expert in functional medicine - who reveals why everything that ails us, from fatigue to weight gain to bloating and bad skin, can be traced back to the gut and shares his cleansing plan to help us reclaim our health.

Dr. Vincent Pedre understands gut problems firsthand. He suffered from IBS for years before becoming an expert in functional medicine and learning how to heal his body from the inside. Dr. Pedre used his own experience to develop The Gut CARE Program - an approach that draws from both Western and Eastern methodologies, combining integrative and functional medicine - which has a proven success record in his private practice in New York. Now, for the first time, Dr. Pedre makes his revolutionary plan for health and wellness available to everyone.

Happy Gut takes listeners step by step through Gut CARE - cleanse, activate, restore, and enhance - which eliminates food triggers, clears the gut of unfriendly pathogens, and replaces them with healthy probiotics and nutrients that repair and heal the gut. Rather than masking symptoms with medication, he shows us how to address the problem at its core to restore the gastrointestinal system to its proper functioning state. By fixing problems in the gut, followers of Dr. Pedre's program have found that their other health woes are also cured, and they have lost weight, gained energy, and improved seemingly unrelated issues, such as seasonal allergies, in addition to eliminating their chronic muscle and abdominal pain.

Complete with recipes and meal plans including gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian options, a two-week full-gut cleanse, yoga postures to help digestion, and testimonials from many of his patients, Happy Gut will help you feel better and eliminate gut issues for life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

just a basic overview

one of those books that sell you on a simple 5 step plan that describes how important each of these are, and why you desperately need this treatment; and then tries to sell you the own products which can be ordered from their website. 28 days of pills and powder for only $500. There are dozens of better gut books out there that don't try to scam you at the end.

Probably better in hard copy...

I got this book after hearing the author Dr. Vincent Pedre on a podcast, and I liked what he had to say. I'm really into the message of this book for the most part, but I think as any sort of plan to execute for 28 days, it's likely better in a hard copy of the book. I wanted to learn more about this program outside of the book, but was a little turned off that it's mostly the Dr. trying to sell his 28-day cleanse program and supplements on social media and his website. It's a fine book, but I am sure there are a ton other books out there for gut health that are just as good or better.

Most irritating Narrator

I bought this book after seeing Dr Pedre interviewed in a Documentary. He is brilliant! I wanted the book so much that I didn't listen to the sample first - big mistake! I am so disappointed he does not narrate his own book. The narrator they chose has the most irritating voice and manner of speaking. The narrator reads in a manner that seems like he has no understanding of the material and its all just words to him. When he tries to inflect some emphasis into particular words it comes across stiff and forced. While I am suffering through it while commuting, it is distracting from the important info and what could have been a great audiobook with a different narrator.

Missing information

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

To be able to listen to the complete book

What could Vincent Pedre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Allow listeners access to the complete book

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Happy Gut?

I wouldn't cut anything out, as mentioned before I would add information

Any additional comments?

Please review the audiobook content and make the complete book available

Good explanation of gut health

Good place to start finding out about health and it’s link to the gut. No recipes explained in the audible, was hoping for some. It mentions they are in the enhancements but not sure what and where that is. To put his ideas into action you do need them....Any ideas audible?

Essential for all to hear

Fundamental information for a healthy body and life, information most people have no idea about.
The question is, do you care about yourself enough to listen?
