Annotation

A groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed (but little understood) health conditions: leaky gut syndrome.

Publisher Description

Affecting 80% of the population, 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.

In Eat Dirt, Dr Axe identifies the five main types of leaky gut syndrome and offers customisable 30-day plans for diagnosing and treating each 'gut type' with diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. He 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, and offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitisers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil.

The premise is simple: identify your gut type, learn which foods to eat and to avoid, incorporate your daily dose of 'dirt', and make simple lifestyle changes.

'Our understanding of what really threatens human health is undergoing a revolution, and Eat Dirt magnificently describes this paradigm shift . . . Read this book and open the door to lifelong health' David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain 'A simple-to-follow guide on the five steps to repair a damaged gut and overcome a range of issues, from autoimmune disease to chronic inflammation. If you're ready to learn some cutting-edge concepts and take back your health, this book is for you' Mark Hyman, MD, author of The Blood Sugar Solution Dirt Is Not the Enemy. In recent decades, modern 'improvements' to our lifestyle and food supply have come with a cost: our health. From an overreliance on antibiotics to a preoccupation with sanitizing everything in sight, our desire to be clean is actually putting us at risk for a host of chronic illnesses. Starved of actual nutrition, fed toxic levels of processed foods, and overtaxed by chemicals and stress, we've developed microscopic tears in our intestinal walls, leading to the widespread inflammation and weakened immunity that characterize a condition known as 'leaky gut syndrome'. 70 per cent of our immune system is located in the gut - when it's under attack, our health suffers. In Eat Dirt , Dr. Josh Axe explains the hidden causes and widespread effects of this little-understood syndrome, which is thought to cause of a litany of ailments including allergies, asthma, food sensitivities, diabetes and even frustratingly difficult-to-treat conditions such as chronic fatigue and autism. Dr. Axe reveals that the solution, while counterintuitive, is almost effortless: we just need to welcome a little more 'dirt' back into our lives. From ditching hand sanitizers, using essential oils for personal products, reducing antibiotic use, and consuming local honey to spending more time outside, eating seasonally, managing stress, and incorporating probiotic-rich foods into our diets, Dr. Axe provides specific guidance to help everyone get a little 'dirty'.
