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. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis. Dr. Josh 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. He 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 probotic-rich soil. Dr. Axe 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.

I found the book after watching the YouTube videos:

If you want an easy to follow companion for the videos, this book is great. Helped me a lot with my digestive and metabolic issues.

Hippocrates stated that all health begins in the gut, but the modern world seems to have forgotten the benefits of eating dirt...

A naturopath. Tries to scare you. Science is shaky in several areas. Read with caution. Seriously: 80% of population with the same health issue? Unlikely.
