From Dr. Vincent Pedre, a specialist in IBS and other gut-related disorders, comes an easy-to-follow, actionable guide to help the millions of people who suffer from chronic stomach pain heal their irritated intestines and eliminate symptoms for good.
'It's all in your head,' 'Eat more fibre,' or 'Take this medication and you'll be fine.' For the millions of people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other gastrointestinal diseases, these are just a few of the common refrains they hear from doctors when they try to seek help. One in five Americans suffers from chronic stomach pain, but many of them suffer in silence or have given up trying to find a cure after being told by doctors that there's really nothing they can do.
Dr. Vincent Pedre knows all too well the struggles these patients endure: he had IBS growing up, throughout medical school, and even for years afterwards. It wasn't until he learned about functional medicine that he finally started to heal his body from the inside. Today, his private practice combines integrative and functional medicine that draws from the strengths of both Western and Eastern methodologies, and he has an astonishing 90% success rate helping his patients conquer their unhappy guts. Now for the first time, Dr. Pedre shares his method, the Gut C.A.R.E. Program, with readers everywhere in HAPPY GUT, HAPPY LIFE.
Dr. Pedre's book will take readers step-by-step through the Gut C.A.R.E. program to address and solve their stomach woes. CARE stands for Clean, Activate, Restore, and Enhance, and the program uses a combination of eliminating food triggers and then replacing them with healthy tummy-friendly probiotics to heal and repair the gut. Rather than just covering up the symptoms with over-prescribed medications, the book will teach readers how to address the problem at its core to restore their stomach and intestines to their proper functioning state.
Complete with recipes and meal plans including gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian options as well as testimonials from many of the patients Dr. Pedre's program has helped, HAPPY GUT, HAPPY LIFE is the first step towards curing those upset stomach problems that plague so many Americans and ultimately eliminating their symptoms for life.
