Overview


Millions of Americans deal with daily digestive malfunction and attribute it to genetics or faulty wiring. Jennifer Browne reveals the common denominator present in almost all chronic digestive angst: food. What we choose to fuel ourselves with has a direct impact on every part of our bodies, starting with the digestive system. Browne urges us to own responsibility for our own health and make conscientious decisions regarding the cause and effect foods have on our digestive tracts. Written in frank, humorous laymen’s terms and sharing her own personal success story along with others’, Browne passionately educates her readers on why a plant-based diet is the only prescription necessary for a happy, healthy tummy. Discover the direct correlation between digestive trauma and factory farming; the incredible benefits of juicing, fermenting, and sprouting food; the reason why GMOs lead to IBS; and what ingredients really just translate to “sugar” or “lab-created chemical.” Heal Your Gut is an easy read that is truly important and highly informative for anyone who has ever dreamed of a perfectly functioning digestive system.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/16/2013
First-time author Browne, an advocate for nutrition education and digestive disorder cessation, recounts her personal odyssey: a 10-year voyage through stomach pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Like other epics, the journey is fraught with personal pain, perceived danger (pharmaceutical companies, milk products, meat and eggs, additives, chemicals, food irradiation), and fear of death, in this case colon cancer. Like most sagas, the story is told through the eyes of the teller, and some of the “data” is opinion. However, readers can be assured that Browne did reach her “Land of Great Digestive Ease” and is eager to share the map that led her there. Indeed, almost half the book comprises a relatively sound dietary strategy that led the author out of pain. For anyone—not just those facing food allergy, irritable bowel, or colitis issues—the book offers reasonable measures to consider and steps to take when better digestion is the goal. Agent: Robert Mackwood, 7th Avenue Literary. (Jan.)
From the Publisher
“Jennifer Browne tells a much needed personal story about health.
Few disease clusters are so confusing fas are the gastrointestinal
diseases—often vague diagnoses and lots of misery. A good personal
story along with some respectable science is very much in order.
Here’s a start well worth reading.”
—T. Colin Campbell, PhD
Professor Emeritus of Nutrition Biochemistry, Cornell University
Co-Author of the best selling The China Study

“Happy Healthy Gut is a necessary read for all. Jennifer Browne not
only provides effective solutions for those suffering from digestive
disorders, but provides the link between gut health and optimal
health, encouraging everyone to feel their absolute best! Browne
filters through all the crap (pun intended) and provides insight and
education in a way that’s approachable, direct and fun to read!”
—Peggy Kotsopoulos, Registered Holistic Nutritionist
and author of Must Have Been Something I Ate

“Digestive disease is the source of suffering and debilitation for
millions and millions of people, leaving so many feeling hopeless,
afraid, and alone. Happy Healthy Gut provides a healthy, easy
solution along with humor, comfort, and a ton of practical tips.
Jennifer Browne reaches out to the reader as an empathetic friend,
empowering and charming us, and infusing inspiration and hope. As
a fellow IBS sufferer who has vastly improved from the whole food,
plant-based diet described in this book, I highly recommend it!”
—Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, author of The Complete Idiot’s
Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition and host of Veria Living’s wellness
talk show, What Would Julieanna Do?

“Inspiring and informative; Jennifer takes you through her digestive
journey, while educating her readers about the digestive system and
the impact a plant-based diet can have on it. I love finding a book
such as this one, that brings a true recovery story into the spotlight.
The masses need to know that we can become responsible for our
health, natural remedies do work, and reversing dis-ease is possible!
Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, Jen!”

“If you are one of the tens of millions of people who suffer
from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, then here is hope! A life of pain,
frustration, and limitation is not a foregone conclusion. Jennifer
Browne has compiled a wealth of information to assist you in using
a plant-strong diet to achieve a vibrantly healthy digestive system.
Happy Healthy Gut is informative, inspirational, and immensely
practical. Read it, apply it, and thrive!”
