Just what color should your poo be, any way? I now know the answer.
The subtitle Everything You Wanted to Know about Burping, Bloating, Candida, Constipation, Food Allergies, Farting, and Poo is an entirely accurate description of this helpful book. Author Joan Sauers combines scientific information with practical descriptions to provide a thorough and entertaining look at our amazing digestive systems.
Get To Know Your Gut begins with a biology 101 overview of the digestive system, explaining how important it is to overall health and why strong emotions are felt in your guts. The section on digestive disorders became a bit tedious because it is a long list, but the information on foods that can help or interfere with keeping things “moving along” is a great resource.
If you have a particular digestive problem, you’ll probably want something more detailed. For the average person who suffers the occasional tummy ache – and who doesn’t? – this is a useful guide.
I appreciated how the author endorsed traditional medicine while also emphasizing a holistic approach to taking care of your body. I have a whole new idea of how what goes into my mouth will at some point have a good or bad effect on how I feel. The book was nicely formatted for Kindle and a few simple diagrams were easy to view.
At $3.02, this book costs about as much as bottle of antacid and will probably help you feel better for a lot longer.
