    -- UPDATE (6/6/17)!! After following the "candida gut" diet for three months... guess what? No more pre-diabetes (I've been lighter in weight before, exercised more and my A1C never came down, but this time it did)! My cholesterol also is vastly improved; my inflammatory markers are al...

    When I was a kid my brother talked me into eating dirt one day, said it was good. No, it wasn?t. He was always ?pulling my leg? as he called it, and I would always fall for it. I also remember making a mud cake around that time, and my mother gave me an old box of raisins that I ...

    I Failed the "Leaky Gut Questionnaire" At first, I thought this book was only mildly interesting. Then, I decided to take the "Leaky Gut" test. The author uses this test to check the likelihood that the "good" microbes in your gut have been harmed. To my astonishment, I had many of ...

    Although I agree with his premise that we need to eat more fruits and vegetables and fermented foods, I disagree with his kooky diets. We just need to eat a variety of whole and unprocessed foods. We don't need supplements and to buy things from his website! ...

    Dr. Josh Axe offers an alternative lifestyle to many of us to cure many diseases. It blames leaky gut syndrome for many of our physical ills. The list includes, but is not limited to, Anxiety, Thyroid. Weight gain, Irritable bowl, allergies and all digestion problems. The Gut is pe...

    Excellent examination on the outcome of our modern day convenience-centered eating habits. There is so much I learned from this book, so much I found fascinating, astounding, surprising and infuriating. Some of it I knew, like the incredible health benefits from consuming kefir and ...

    Dr. Josh Axe introduces the concept of Leaky Gut, which is the root cause of a lot of modern diseases and health problems. Dr. Axe stresses that we need to have microbial diversity in our guts to keep our system in balance and maintain a healthy gut protective lining. This prevents pat...

    There are some very good tips here (get exposed to dirt/earth, soak in sea water if you can, that sort of thing), but on the whole, the full concept of what the author wants the reader to follow sounds rather utopian. Not only are all the supplements and probiotics he recommends probab...

    I've been following Dr. Axe for a few years now, I subscribe to his newsletter, and read his blog and have heard him speak for many online "summits". eat dirt is a comprehensive look at how our current lifestyle and diet is killing us. We're over sanitized and undernourished. We ne...

    If YOU don't think you have leaky gut syndrome, think again. Or you may have a friend, a family member, a colleague or a neighbor who is suffering from various ailments, low-energy, gastrointestinal issues, inexplicable fatigue, or their children (or your children) are having behaviora...

    I am going to rant about this one a bit. I don't think Dr. Axe is particularly bad at this so please don't hate him too much. Pretty much everything I am saying applies to people without MDs who insist on calling themselves Doctor (Dre not included). Dr. Axe is better than most of thes...

    As I grow older, among other things, I continue to re-examine my life and the choices that I make in how I treat myself both mentally and physically. This book came recommended to me through one of the teacher - parent book clubs at my daughter's school. The book focuses on the human g...

    If YOU don't think you have leaky gut syndrome, think again. Or you may have a friend, a family member, a colleague or a neighbor who is suffering from various ailments, low-energy, gastrointestinal issues, inexplicable fatigue, or their children (or your children) are having behaviora...

    I am going to rant about this one a bit. I don't think Dr. Axe is particularly bad at this so please don't hate him too much. Pretty much everything I am saying applies to people without MDs who insist on calling themselves Doctor (Dre not included). Dr. Axe is better than most of thes...

    As I grow older, among other things, I continue to re-examine my life and the choices that I make in how I treat myself both mentally and physically. This book came recommended to me through one of the teacher - parent book clubs at my daughter's school. The book focuses on the human g...

    I have been interested in reading about the microbiome and health for a while. This was easy to read and incorporate into my health regimen- especially for my migraines. ...

    Dr. Axe goes in depth into the gut-brain connection and how to heal different kinds of disorders from Candida to Adrenal Fatigue using functional medicine. I think this is a great health book to own! ...

    Kinda zoned out when he started saying that it was important to wash your hands after you use the restroom. But some of the other info was new to me and worth listening to. ...

    4.5 stars. Lots of great info. And in some ways, not enough. Pros: well written, helpful index, good mix of anecdotal to science, lots of ideas for things that could help, many extras online since the book can't get into all the details for various topics. I think Axe knows his stu...

    A lot of product placement. Sort of has a Tim Ferris something about him in the way that his doing this is a blatant way of making money, which I'm ok with. But not everyone is. (He's not sacrificing quality as he does it in the way David Wolfe does.) He's gotta make a living and his i...

    In this book Dr. Josh Axe guides us through the process of healing our leaky guts. He does this by explaining WHAT it is (bad regulation of the tight junctions in the gut, which leaves room for substances to leak into the bloodstream) HOW it is CAUSED (antibiotics, processed foods,...

    I was so excited to win a copy of Eat Dirt, by Dr. Josh Axe through Goodreads, and I am reviewing this book in return. I have been following Dr. Axe via emails and Facebook as I love his approach to health. I often read books about functional and integrative medicine and give them as ...

    This book took a long time for me to finish. Much of it was familiar, but it was good to get some reminders. ...

    i only wish this book had been available 5 years ago. for anyone suffering from leaky gut this is a brilliant read and also a hopeful read. Josh Axe really does make you feel like you can mend and not just mend but be happier and healthier than you ever were before. i particularly appr...

    I am exited about all I have learned from this book. This could be an extremely dull book, but Dr Axe's writing is easy and pleasant to read. Each chapter got me excited about something new, especially the recipes. It's always such a big time waster when you have to search through reci...

    When I was a kid my brother talked me into eating dirt one day, said it was good. No, it wasn?t. He was always ?pulling my leg? as he called it, and I would always fall for it. I also remember making a mud cake around that time, and my mother gave me an old box of raisins that I ...

    I Failed the "Leaky Gut Questionnaire" At first, I thought this book was only mildly interesting. Then, I decided to take the "Leaky Gut" test. The author uses this test to check the likelihood that the "good" microbes in your gut have been harmed. To my astonishment, I had many of ...

    A lot of product placement. Sort of has a Tim Ferris something about him in the way that his doing this is a blatant way of making money, which I'm ok with. But not everyone is. (He's not sacrificing quality as he does it in the way David Wolfe does.) He's gotta make a living and his i...

    I was so excited to win a copy of Eat Dirt, by Dr. Josh Axe through Goodreads, and I am reviewing this book in return. I have been following Dr. Axe via emails and Facebook as I love his approach to health. I often read books about functional and integrative medicine and give them as ...

    This book took a long time for me to finish. Much of it was familiar, but it was good to get some reminders. ...

    i only wish this book had been available 5 years ago. for anyone suffering from leaky gut this is a brilliant read and also a hopeful read. Josh Axe really does make you feel like you can mend and not just mend but be happier and healthier than you ever were before. i particularly appr...

    I am exited about all I have learned from this book. This could be an extremely dull book, but Dr Axe's writing is easy and pleasant to read. Each chapter got me excited about something new, especially the recipes. It's always such a big time waster when you have to search through reci...

    This book is mostly the principles I *try* to follow in my eating habits. We all get off track and that's why I decided to read it. There is some great information in here about certain gut microbes for specific things. If you feel your gut is not functioning well (bloat, low energy, c...

    I am going to rant about this one a bit. I don't think Dr. Axe is particularly bad at this so please don't hate him too much. Pretty much everything I am saying applies to people without MDs who insist on calling themselves Doctor (Dre not included). Dr. Axe is better than most of thes...

    As I grow older, among other things, I continue to re-examine my life and the choices that I make in how I treat myself both mentally and physically. This book came recommended to me through one of the teacher - parent book clubs at my daughter's school. The book focuses on the human g...

    -- UPDATE (6/6/17)!! After following the "candida gut" diet for three months... guess what? No more pre-diabetes (I've been lighter in weight before, exercised more and my A1C never came down, but this time it did)! My cholesterol also is vastly improved; my inflammatory markers are al...

    When I was a kid my brother talked me into eating dirt one day, said it was good. No, it wasn?t. He was always ?pulling my leg? as he called it, and I would always fall for it. I also remember making a mud cake around that time, and my mother gave me an old box of raisins that I ...

    I Failed the "Leaky Gut Questionnaire" At first, I thought this book was only mildly interesting. Then, I decided to take the "Leaky Gut" test. The author uses this test to check the likelihood that the "good" microbes in your gut have been harmed. To my astonishment, I had many of ...

    Although I agree with his premise that we need to eat more fruits and vegetables and fermented foods, I disagree with his kooky diets. We just need to eat a variety of whole and unprocessed foods. We don't need supplements and to buy things from his website! ...

    Dr. Josh Axe offers an alternative lifestyle to many of us to cure many diseases. It blames leaky gut syndrome for many of our physical ills. The list includes, but is not limited to, Anxiety, Thyroid. Weight gain, Irritable bowl, allergies and all digestion problems. The Gut is pe...

    Some interesting ideas but mostly filler. Skim it or borrow it. ...

    Excellent examination on the outcome of our modern day convenience-centered eating habits. There is so much I learned from this book, so much I found fascinating, astounding, surprising and infuriating. Some of it I knew, like the incredible health benefits from consuming kefir and ...

    Dr. Josh Axe introduces the concept of Leaky Gut, which is the root cause of a lot of modern diseases and health problems. Dr. Axe stresses that we need to have microbial diversity in our guts to keep our system in balance and maintain a healthy gut protective lining. This prevents pat...

    There are some very good tips here (get exposed to dirt/earth, soak in sea water if you can, that sort of thing), but on the whole, the full concept of what the author wants the reader to follow sounds rather utopian. Not only are all the supplements and probiotics he recommends probab...

    I've been following Dr. Axe for a few years now, I subscribe to his newsletter, and read his blog and have heard him speak for many online "summits". eat dirt is a comprehensive look at how our current lifestyle and diet is killing us. We're over sanitized and undernourished. We ne...

    4.5 stars. Lots of great info. And in some ways, not enough. Pros: well written, helpful index, good mix of anecdotal to science, lots of ideas for things that could help, many extras online since the book can't get into all the details for various topics. I think Axe knows his stu...

    A lot of product placement. Sort of has a Tim Ferris something about him in the way that his doing this is a blatant way of making money, which I'm ok with. But not everyone is. (He's not sacrificing quality as he does it in the way David Wolfe does.) He's gotta make a living and his i...

    In this book Dr. Josh Axe guides us through the process of healing our leaky guts. He does this by explaining WHAT it is (bad regulation of the tight junctions in the gut, which leaves room for substances to leak into the bloodstream) HOW it is CAUSED (antibiotics, processed foods,...

    I was so excited to win a copy of Eat Dirt, by Dr. Josh Axe through Goodreads, and I am reviewing this book in return. I have been following Dr. Axe via emails and Facebook as I love his approach to health. I often read books about functional and integrative medicine and give them as ...

    This book took a long time for me to finish. Much of it was familiar, but it was good to get some reminders. ...

    i only wish this book had been available 5 years ago. for anyone suffering from leaky gut this is a brilliant read and also a hopeful read. Josh Axe really does make you feel like you can mend and not just mend but be happier and healthier than you ever were before. i particularly appr...
