Mind Your Gut

Mind Your Gut

Mind Your Gut is a deep dive into IBS and other gut busting chronic illnesses.

I learned some new facts from this book despite having read quite a few books previously about gut issues. There is some interesting information here. Unfortunately, there are few concrete solutions other than advice to see your doctor for tests and, in some cases, medicine. I don’t blame the book. IBS is a shape-shifting disease that manifests differently in different people making it impossible to generalize advice.

Be aware that 40% of the book is appendices and resources. Within the first appendix, comprising 27% of the book, are recipes. That would be great if the recipes had photos or nutritional information, you know, like a cookbook. The other appendix is how to prep for a colonoscopy. Both seem there more to fit a page count than to be really relevant to the rest of the book.

Overall, I think Mind Your Gut is perfect for someone unfamiliar with gut disease literature. For more informed readers, much of this may seem familiar with a few gems thrown in here and there. 3 stars.

Thanks to Hachette Go and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
