Overview

Approximately 75 percent of your total immune cells are found in your gut.
 
Most chronic diseases actually begin in the gut.  Did you know that there's also a powerful gut brain connection and whatever inflames your gut will eventually inflame your brain, causing memory loss, brain fog, fatigue, and invite all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases into your brain, but when you heal your gut, it helps to protect your brain.
 
Join Dr. Colbert, New York Times best-selling author, as he helps you "unlearn" everything medical experts have been teaching about healthy eating for the last three decades and reveals the true path to digestive health through proper diet supported by nutritional supplements. What you choose to eat and not to eat is the greatest way to protect your health, and Dr. Colbert makes it easier than ever. More and more, science is proving that a healthy digestive system is the key to a healthy brain and body—and the power to keep your gut healthy lies directly with you! 

This book is going to help you understand the connection between your gut and your health.  You will learn that whatever inflames your gut will eventually inflame your brain and the rest of your body.  Making the right food choices will become the medicine in which you will walk and live in divine health.
