When it comes to making you feel good inside, the person to get information from is Victoria Bowmann, Ph.D
, author of You Gotta Have GUTS!: The Natural Way to Enhance G.I. Health
. With conflicting information all over the place about food safety, diet, nutrition and natural supplements to help us along the path to good health, Bowmann, whose book includes Chapters like Toxic Pollution-Cleansing Solution
, What's Really Eating at You?
and the Menagerie of Bacteria
, begins by informing readers that she "didn't chose her profession, it chose her due to childhood allergies that came back with a vengeance in her mid-twenties."
Now with a mission to help as many people as possible with her knowledge and devotion, Victoria Bowmann runs a private practice assisting people back to health and spreading the word in print, on the radio and through the miracle of the Internet. First a bit of frightening news: Colon cancer is the 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world. Constipation is common: The incidence of constipation varies from 2% to 30% of the general population. Due to unsatisfactory results from medical treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, 50% of people turn to complementary alternative medicine. Clostridium difficil sickens about a half million Americans every year, and every year the epidemic gets about 10% bigger, according to a CDC medical epidemiologist. The death rate is soaring by 35% a year.
"Most people don't fully understand the importance of digestive health," explains Bowmann, "In fact, many people still feel slightly embarrassed or uncomfortable seeking information on the topic because it's perceived as 'distasteful or gross.' With colon cancer on the rise,40% of the public struggling with gas, bloat, diarrhea, constipation or some other digestive complaint, it's time to alter this sentiment. The purpose of my book is to educate and encourage everyone to take a proactive approach. Quite simply, gastro-intestinal health is fundamental to overall health and longevity."
With this in mind, Bowmann's book, with the catchy title of You Gotta Have GUTS!,
is described by her as "owner's manual for the health-conscious individual." It details the composition of the intestinal tract and how to effectively, and holistically, maintain digestive health. A pioneer in pro-biotic research, the book offers a clear cut and detailed explanation of the inner workings of the human digestive system and its important role in overall wellbeing. Some of the topics covered are: physical characteristics, functions and possible complications in the digestive system, proper nutrition and exercises to enhance GI function, bacteria, parasites and environmental toxins, dealing with chronic illness and finding help, home remedies that are easy and beneficial, as well as documentation and research for physicians.
With a topic like this, one which many of us don't want to discuss let alone know in detail, Bowmann made an effort to bring a light-heated and entertaining approach for even the most apprehensive readers, this while educating them about the generally unpleasant topic of the human digestive system, its constituents, and functionality. Interlaced with her avant-garde research on the method of "Reflorastation," the process of reintroducing healthy bacteria into the colon, is vital information on overall gastro-intestinal health.
It is also human nature that many people only look for help when things go drastically wrong. However, it's nice to know that this information is actually of interest to younger people too, here is testimony to that effect in a letter from a young woman:
"I am a 17 year old high school student at Chaparral High School in Paradise Valley, Arizona. My mom got a book from Victoria Bowmann called "You Gotta Have Guts" and she thought it was totally brilliant. I was curious about what the big deal was, so I decided to give the book a look. Before I knew it, I was really into it. It was so clear and easy to understand. It taught me so much but it was totally understandable. I really wish that we had a book like this in our science program that is so educational but never boring. It would be so awesome to have a book like hers so that we could understand how to take care of our digestive system BEFORE we develop crazy problems, while we're still young and haven't totally messed up our bodies yet. I just felt very strongly about this and thought how great it would be to have this in our schools and do something proactive for us kids. Thank you. Becky"
