The whole wellness world is going nuts for guts, and with good reason. The discovery that the gut and brain are not distinct and separate entities but closely connected is life–changing for everyone. Now, it is impossible to ignore the importance of gut health to chronic health complaints. As we discover strong links between bloating and brain fog, diarrhoea and depression, and aches and anxiety, it seems clearer than ever that we need to support our guts with the utmost care.
In this vibrant book, naturopath, Garden Apothecary guru and Herb Nerd Reece Carter offers gentle traditional remedies born of the naturopathic tradition that you can make at home, as well as the most effective, easy and delicious 'food as medicine' recipes to help you feel better.
The Happy Gut contains remedies and recipes to:
• Enhance digestion;
• Naturally manage indigestion, IBS and inflammation;
• Nurture happy, healthy gut bacteria; and
• Lift mood.
Reece also discusses how to achieve optimal health the naturopathic way, what you should grow in your garden and he also takes us on a tour of the materia medica: the wonderful world of medicinal herbs. Powered by the latest research into the gut–brain axis, The Happy Gut will show you the pathway to everyday good gut health.
