Publisher's Summary

Doctor of natural medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome.

Do you have a leaky gut? For 80 percent of the population, the answer is yes - and most people don't even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis.

To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest, and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome.

In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern "improvements" to our food supply - including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains - have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it's essential to get a little "dirty" in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil.

Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main "gut types" and offers customizable plans - including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations - to dramatically improve gut health in just 30 days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help listeners restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.

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

    "Mispronounced words."

    Many words were mispronounced. Other than that, it seems to be really good information. I am being much less fanatical about clean!

    "You are now entering the Eat Dirt Zone"

    I listen to a lot of Dr. Axe's talks online. I've learned a lot from him. But in this book I feel things were repetitive. I kept looking at my phone thinking maybe I had accidentally gone back to a different chapter. The narrator has a wonderful voice for twilight zone narration but it seemed overly sinister for nutrition book. Every time he said dirt his voice would go really low and I felt like there should be shrill Organ cord or a "duh duh duh...". His mispronunciation of so many words like ashwaganda, candida (not Canada) showed a lack of of preparation on his part. Also a lack of oversight on Dr. Axe's part. I wonder how many times they said eat dirt in this book. I got a little old even though I felt like a permission overall was good.

    "Give you doctor this book...."
    Where does Eat Dirt rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an important book that will help people dial in the root issue with what ails them


    What did you like best about this story?

    The clarity


    What about Eric Martin’s performance did you like?

    The fact that his delivery does not detract from the imformation and he is easy on the ears


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really one moment, the whole book is must have information to fuction in today's world.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book to give to your doctor. More than anyone they need to know! Maybe they will begin to guide their patients to strategies to heal themselves.

    "High recommend to all especially above 40"

    I implemented some of it and started seeing positive results, I highly recommend to all. It will change your view about fast food and other processed foods.

    "New Voiceover Artist Needed"

    This voiceover artist struggles to correctly pronounce some of the medical and biological terms. A simple googling of the terms could have helped him to learn. It's too bad.

    Story
    "Rod Serling talks about dirt"
    Would you listen to Eat Dirt again? Why?

    I was taken aback when Dr. Axe brought his religion into the book and recommended people pray. I would think something like a book on one's intestinal flora could escape the throes of religion but no, he had to drop a bomb in there. Other than that the book was somewhat good, a little unbelievable and not enough grounding in science.


    What three words best describe Eric Martin’s voice?

    Way too intense. Like I said in the title he made everything sound like we were about to go into another dimension of time and space. His voice was good, just don't think it's a good fit for this topic.
