Synopses & Reviews
Millions of Americans deal with daily digestive malfunction and attribute it to genetics or faulty wiring. Jennifer Browne reveals the common denominator present in almost all chronic digestive angst: food. What we choose to fuel ourselves with has a direct impact on every part of our bodies, starting with the digestive system. Browne urges us to own responsibility for our own health and make conscientious decisions regarding the cause and effect foods have on our digestive tracts. Written in frank, humorous laymens terms and sharing her own personal success story along with others, Browne passionately educates her readers on why a plant-based diet is the only prescription necessary for a happy, healthy tummy. Discover the direct correlation between digestive trauma and factory farming; the incredible benefits of juicing, fermenting, and sprouting food; the reason why GMOs lead to IBS; and what ingredients really just translate to “sugar” or “lab-created chemical.” Heal Your Gut is an easy read that is truly important and highly informative for anyone who has ever dreamed of a perfectly functioning digestive system.
"First-time author Browne, an advocate for nutrition education and digestive disorder cessation, recounts her personal odyssey: a 10-year voyage through stomach pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Like other epics, the journey is fraught with personal pain, perceived danger (pharmaceutical companies, milk products, meat and eggs, additives, chemicals, food irradiation), and fear of death, in this case colon cancer. Like most sagas, the story is told through the eyes of the teller, and some of the 'data' is opinion. However, readers can be assured that Browne did reach her 'Land of Great Digestive Ease' and is eager to share the map that led her there. Indeed, almost half the book comprises a relatively sound dietary strategy that led the author out of pain. For anyone not just those facing food allergy, irritable bowel, or colitis issues the book offers reasonable measures to consider and steps to take when better digestion is the goal.

Jennifer Browne tells a much needed personal story about health.
Few disease clusters are so confusing fas are the gastrointestinal
diseasesoften vague diagnoses and lots of misery. A good personal
story along with some respectable science is very much in order.
Heres a start well worth reading.”
