Millions of people suffer from chronic cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and gas. If you or someone you love is plagued by chronic digestive distress, you know what it's like to be held captive by your gut or spend thousands on drugs and treatments that bring only temporary relief. In TRUST YOUR GUT, Dr. Gregory Plotnikoff and Dr. Mark Weisberg show how to listen to your gut to interpret symptoms as important messages that can help correct imbalances. Rather than using drugs to mask the symptoms and underlying problems, Plotnikoff and Weisberg offer a programme to assess how diet, sleep and stress are affecting your life and health. Readers learn how to: Identify their specific form of gastrointestinal distress and understand the meaning behind it Restore good communication between brain and gut Use Neurohormonal Retraining to lessen or prevent hypersensitivity in the gut. Use Ecological Rebalancing to reduce pain and promote healthy digestion. Plotnikoff and Weisberg offer a self-help programme that provides anyone with chronic gut distress the tools to break the vicious cycle of symptoms, fear and pain.
