Digestive problems assume many forms, and the first step toward restored digestive health is identifying the specific problem. Methods for maintaining digestive health include exercise, a properly balanced diet, and identifying food intolerances, which vary widely from one person to another. Diets are recommended for special digestive needs, and therapies range from herbal and homeopathic remedies to surgery. "Options for Health" titles present health advice and information gathered from a wide range of conventional and alternative sources. Each book speaks to health and fitness problems by covering virtually all possible remedies from simple quick-fix solutions to options for professional help from therapists and medical doctors. Tips, answers to problems, and fitness suggestions in these books have been drawn from sources as diverse as latest nutritional science findings, ancient herbal remedies, modern medicine, and long-established, widely accepted therapies. Each book's text is supplemented with approximately 40 full-color photos and illustrations.
