Publisher's Summary

Is your gut impacting your health? Find out if your gut is responsible for inflammation and a host of medical issues, from anxiety to autoimmune disorders. If you have an unhealthy gut, chances are you frequently suffer from heartburn, constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. These symptoms occur frequently in people who have gut issues. But the good news is they can all be treated. Many people tend to treat the symptoms of an unhealthy gut, rather than trying to boost the health of the gut in the first place. While there is nothing wrong with this, if you don't treat the root cause of the issue, it's likely that you will be experiencing those symptoms again and again. Medication that can help to treat the symptoms of a leaky gut may actually be making your gut even more unhealthy. In this audiobook, you will find out how to improve the health of your gut. Specifically, we will look at:

What is Leaky Gut?

How your gut can impact your entire health, including triggering inflammation throughout your body that may cause autoimmune disorders, mood disorders, heart attacks, and cancer.

How food intolerances and allergies play a role, including gluten, and lectins.

How stress and medications impact your gut

How fiber can repair your gut

Pre and Probiotics

How what you eat can heal your gut .This essential handbook will give you a beginning guide on how you can make significant changes to your gut health, and improve your overall well-being. Please note: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material, including food charts, will be available in your My Library section, along with the audio.

What an eye opener..

I never would have associated my migraine headaches with my gut health. This book is very interesting to say the least. The author gives a list of ailments that stem from a leaky gut. She even gives dietary suggestions for correcting problems. Everyone with health issues from Crohn's disease to Eczema should listen to this book. The narration was also done very well. I requested this book and have decided to voluntarily leave my honest review.

Great read

The Essential Handbook to a Healthy Gut: How a Leaky Gut Impacts Your Entire Body and How to Make it Healthy Once Again by Evelyn Carmichael was a good read. This was a great guide for things to do to increase the health of your gut.

Avoid this book

This book starts with true generalities and sounds competent. However, it degenerates IMMEDIATELY. The amount of non-science and wrong science being passed off here as truth is breath-taking, bold, and entirely irresponsible. Surrounding a falsehood with scientific words and trivia does not make it true. The generalities here are nice enough, but many of the specifics are destructively and objectively incorrect. Don't take my word for it (and certainly don't take this book's word for it) -- if you have questions about these topics, please find a book written by someone reputable or talk to your doctor or to a registered dietitian.

After a little research I was initially impressed by this author's 20-ish diet books. Until I noticed that it's just a glut of books mostly released in 1 year to no reviews at all or often negative reviews. I've also found all of this author's diet related books are just rehashes of the controversial Steven R. Gundry and his highly criticized book The Plant Paradox. Again: don't take my word for it, check him out yourself.

Also, charts are referred to but none of them are included in the pdf. The pdf is a dime-store summary of a lot of herbs and supplements which are, by the document's own admission, unproven.

The good parts:

1) If you strip out the specific scientific claims, there's good advice about health beginning in the gut and the fact that what you eat can affect you in enormous ways. This is the kind of insight I hoped to gain when I first read the book's summary.

2) The narration was very good. This is a dry topic but this narrator was easy to listen to and she kept me engaged.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Wish I had the charts

The PDF included with this audiobook did not contain all the charts mentioned but not spelled out, so it was a little frustrating not being able to see the items listed on the charts.

Good starter info, great narration

This is a good book for some quick information, it gives you just the minimum basics for each topic. I would've appreciated if all the lists referred to in the text were included in the PDF. The narration is great....especially for the subject matter. Kimberly S. Hobscheid does an excellent job narrating this rather boring topic, reading in such a way that keeps you listening and believing maybe it isn't so boring after all! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

I Gained A Lot of Insight From This Audiobook

Healthy Gut was a great listen for me. I'm glad I was able to listen to it. This is something I'd heard of before but not enough info. Now I know much more. Interestingly, since I had my gall bladder removed I've had nothing but issues with my tummy. As a matter of fact, I've been misdiagnosed with numerous things that were later found to be incorrect. I think there really is something to the leaky gut thing. If it hadn't been for this book, I may not have been clued in.

Kimberly S. Hobscheid's narration was terrific. She had a nice, soothing voice yet was able to pass along the information in a professional manner. Great combination of author/reader.

Actionable information on gut health

I have read health audiobooks close to 20 hours long which were less helpful than this short listen. The author condensed the issues and information down to the most part dentils elements and just delivers the goods. Many could learn from her efficient economy.

If you are looking for someone to tell you that there is a medication to take and that you needn’t change any of your eating habits, you will inevitably be disappointed with this audiobook. The poor reviews that I read made me think we were listening the two different books.

This is succinct, well organized and presented, actionable information about your gut health. Give this advice a month. Your toilet will thank you.

Helpful!

This was an informative and helpful book for anyone looking to start living a healthier life. It is amazing how much your gut actually can affect your overall health. Narration was really well done. I enjoyed this audio and took away some information that will help my desire to live healthy.

Great Book

This is a great book for those who want to start living a healthy lifestyle. I get migraine headaches at times and I never would have thought that my gut would have had anything to do with them. The narrator did a great job. I highly recommend this book.
