The definitive guide to healthy digestion
Digestive Wellness explains how your digestive system works and what to do when it doesn't. You'll find practical solutions to all the common gastrointestinal disorders (and many other conditions) and expert guidance on the newest advances in testing and diagnosis, nutrition, and natural therapies. Plus, you'll learn how faulty digestion can affect the human body systemically, from migraines and skin issues to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Dr. Lipski offers a practical toolkit to support each of us--clinicians and patients--to return to wellness by bringing our gastrointestinal system back into balance and harmony. I believe that you will deeply benefit from joining Dr. Lipski on this journey toward digestive wellness.
