Praise for Digestive Health with REAL Food, 2nd Edition
"Knowledge of the importance of gut health has exploded in the past decade, and is arguably the most important element one might consider for health and longevity. But how can one make sense of the vast amounts of information and conflicting clinical recommendations? My go-to is the gut-health bible, which also goes by the title Digestive Health with REAL Food. Whether you are a layperson looking to improve your health or a practicing clinician looking for insights to help your patients, this book is indispensable."

"Poor gut health is at the root of so many health issues, including autoimmune disease. I love how Aglaée helps readers understand in a clear yet easy-to-understand and holistic way how food and other natural strategies have the power to heal the body from the inside out. I highly recommend Digestive Health with REAL Food for those suffering from both gut issues and autoimmunity."
