The Cleansing Program to Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Eliminate PainBook - 2015 | First edition.
This groundbreaking book by a top Functional Medicine specialist reveals that everything you put into your gut can either create serious digestive issues or fix them. Dr. Vincent Pedre understands gut problems firsthand. He suffered from irritable bowel syndrome for years before becoming an expert in Functional Medicine and learning how to heal his body through food. Dr. Pedre drew from his own experience to develop the Gut C.A.R.E. Program, an approach that draws from both Western and Eastern methodologies, combining integrative and Functional Medicine, and has a proven track record in his private practice. Now Dr. Pedre makes his plan available to everyone. This book takes readers step-by-step through Gut C.A.R.E.--Cleanse, Activate, Restore, and Enhance--which eliminates food triggers, clears the gut of unfriendly pathogens, and replaces them with healthy probiotics and nutrients that repair and heal the gut. Rather than masking symptoms with medication, he shows us how to address problems at their core. By fixing problems in the gut, followers of Dr. Pedre's program have also cured other health woes, and they have dropped excess pounds, gained extra energy, experienced the disappearance of their seasonal allergies, felt their aches and pains vanish, and improved their overall health. Complete with recipes and meal plans including gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian options, a 28-day full gut cleanse, yoga postures to help digestion, and inspiring examples from many of Dr. Pedre's patients.--Adapted from book jacket.
