Thousands of people will be able to benefit from the medical advice found in Dr. McDougall's Digestive Tune-Up. This life-changing information shows how to heal intestinal illnesses through a noninvasive approach of diet and lifestyle changes. According to Dr. McDougall, constipation, hemorrhoids, ulcers, IBS, and colitis are a few of the chronic digestive disorders that can be prevented and cured by eating a low-fat, cholesterol-free, plant-based diet. The reasons for this become apparent through a series of "office visits" by two fictitious, middle-aged patients who seek medical intervention in order to regain their health.
Through these "visits" readers learn:
- how their digestive system works
- to identify the root causes of intestinal discomfort
- why "friendly" bacteria are necessary for overall health
- how to take control of the healing process
- how to avoid surgical procedures & expensive medications
This book covers topics that are often taboo in common conversation with a candid, often humorous look. Easy to understand, the information covered will enable everyone to make more informed medical decisions and wiser dietary choices.
