The Holistic Gut Prescription is designed to be a simple guide to healing the gut, based on the following premise: if people give the body what it needs to heal itself and remove the obstacles to its cure, then within reason, healing will follow.
Nature Cure is not easy to employ, but it is usually easy to understand. There are only so many building blocks, and there are only so many possible obstacles to cure. The physician’s job is not to “make someone well,” but rather to facilitate the process of healing.
In this guide, Dr. Lauren helps readers recognize which obstacles to a healthy gut they face, how to remove them, and how to supply the specific building blocks they lack so that they can create their own personal path to optimal digestive wellness.
“The Holistic Gut Prescription is the most thorough guide to intestinal wellness I’ve seen to date. Readers can learn detailed programs to reverse leaky gut, chronic infections, candida and chronic inflammation. The book also gives deep perspective on how multifaceted the connections between gut health, lifestyle, and mindset are. Highly recommended.” —Alan Christianson, NMD, New York Times bestselling author of The Adrenal Reset Diet

5 Out of 5 Stars
I normally avoid books like this however I enjoyed reading this one. I found this book helpful and informative. I loved the fact that I was able to go through a list of questions and then I was able to read simply those things that were applicable to me. Usually, if you read a book this encompassing you find your self slogging through loads of irrelevant content. However, with this book you read only that information that is applicable to you personally... This alone was reason to give it 5 stars. but the fact that is is well written and easy to understand, with case studies of real people is the other reason it gets 5 stars. If you are interested in Holistic Health or even simply interested in it this is a wonderful book to have in hand.
This is the beauty of the naturopathic philosophy: our bodies are designed to heal themselves. If you give your body what it needs to heal and remove the obstacles to cure, health will generally follow. How simple or how complicated the interpretation of this principle becomes in a given case depends on a couple of main variables:
1) How many obstacles to cure are present,
2) How many building blocks are missing,
3) How long you’ve been in the present condition, and/or
4) How willing you are to make the necessary changes.
