Irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, colitis, hepatitis, heartburn--these are only a few of the gastrointestinal disorders that affect tens of millions of Americans. Despite their prevalence, these conditions have proven difficult to treat with standard medical approaches. In this updated guide, Andrew Gaeddert offers a wealth of natural remedies and lifestyle changes that have helped thousands to alleviate symptoms and heal their bodies, one step at a time. Drawing on his extensive clinical experience, Gaeddert covers such topics as herbs and vitamins, Chinese medicine, meditation, and environmental triggers that affect digestion, helping the reader make sense of the daunting array of natural healing techniques.
