In Clean Gut, Alejandro Junger, M.D, New York Times bestselling author of Clean and creator of the world-famous Clean Program, delivers a complete toolkit for reversing disease and sustaining life-long health.

All of today’s most-diagnosed ailments can be traced back to an injured and irritated gut. The gut is an intricate and powerful system, naturally designed to protect and heal the body every moment of every day  And yet for far too many of us, this remarkable system is in disrepair, which leads to all kinds of health problems—from extra pounds, aches and pains, allergies, mood swings, and lack of libido, to heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, and depression.

But we no longer have to be sick to get healthy. In this groundbreaking program, Alejandro Junger, M.D. explains how instead of treating the symptoms as they arise, we can preemptively attack disease before it takes root in the gut.

No matter your current state of health, you will benefit from this program: Clean Gut will help you put an end to everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and achieve true, long-lasting health.

I have been on this diet for two weeks and I feel amazing. I am sensitive to gluten and somewhat lactose intolerant and had gained 10 pounds over the last few months. I've always needed a lot of sleep and I'm known for taking naps. In the last two weeks I have lost almost all ten pounds and I have tons of energy. I used to get really low blood sugar between meals, but I find I'm not as hungry anymore. I thought I would just do this for a month and lose some weight, but I feel so good, I think I'm going to keep it up on a regular basis as much as possible. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone.
