Are you eating a reasonable diet, getting enough exercise and still experiencing indigestion, bloat, or other "gut distress"? Do you experience frequent knots, butterflies, tension, or more severe symptoms in your gut?

That's because diet and exercise are only part of the equation-scientists are now proving what body/mind theorists have been saying all along: that the gut and brain are inextricably connected. Positive thoughts of joy, peace, and love contribute to a healthy gut. Negative thoughts of rage, resentment, and anxiety are like toxins in the gut.

Gut Wisdom will help you learn how to listen to your gut to achieve total body health. Unlike other books on digestion, it is a friendly, readable, easy-to-understand guide that gives you specific procedures you can use to alleviate indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, and many other common ailments.

"A positive mental attitude is everything, and this inspirational as well as informative guide to good tummy health is fairly brimming with it. Sorokie, who owns her own holistic health center in Chicago and teaches "gut wisdom" workshops, offers a complete instructional rundown, from diseases to diets, in her effort to make all people realize "your gut 'knows' what you need." She explains why not to ignore the signs and signals your gut is giving you about your digestive health and how not to ignore its messages--meaning, what to do about the information you are receiving, in terms of what to put into your mouth and what not to. Her user-friendly format permits easy consultation about a specific problem, and her warm tone encourages reading the book straight through, as a "journey," as the author calls it." --Brad Hooper, Booklist
