Digestive Health with Real Food by Aglaee Jacob is an excellent reference book.
It’s big, clear, full of info, and can be a good guide for your detective work on digestion, elimination (poop), and how to get well. Constipation, diarrhea, reflux and much more are in our Interview.
Agalee, like most of us who have come forward to teach or write about natural health, has been through her own digestive struggles, and has put together a juicy resource book on eating, pooping, IBS, bacteria, fructose problems, probiotics and more. She offers guidelines on food challenges, supplements, choosing probiotics, and fermented foods.
If you want info on the color and consistency of your stool, listen to us talk about green, gold, pale, floating, foamy and lots of other “poop” descriptors. Now how much fun can you have in a 45 minute show?
Oh, and there’s gluten free and paleo recipes too. Bone broth, gelatin, meat cupcakes, macaroons, apple pudding and other simple foods for healing tummies old and new. I asked Aglaee for her recommended gelatin source and she suggests Great Lakes brand. Nice to have an alternative to commercial stock that may not be good for us.
You can buy her book on Amazon or her website.
