Dr. Lamm, known to millions as the “house doctor” on ABC’s The View, describes how important it is to understand the vital role the gut plays in health, which goes far beyond digestion. As an internist and a long-time advocate preventive medicine, Lamm offers a three-step plan in his new book, No Guts, No Glory, that supports total body health, including the immune system, heart and brain.
Step One: The “Gut-Smart Eating Plan” focuses on NATURAL FOODS, such as raw vegetables and whole grains, which contain live digestive enzymes that maximize absorption of nutrients and aid regularity.
Step Two: DETOXIFICATION, which is required to cleanse the damaging effects of living in a highly polluted environment. Dr. Lamm shows readers how to purge the gut of toxins by drinking more water, cutting stress, exercising more, sleeping better, taking targeted supplements, and eliminating addictive substances.
Step Three: RESTORING the gut to full function by repopulating it with enzymes for extracting essential nutrients from the foods we eat; and with probiotics and prebiotics that supply friendly bacteria for proper digestion. A gut-check questionnaire helps to identify problem areas so readers can customize each step of the plan to their specific needs.
According to Dr. Lamm, whenever you implement healthful pro-gut changes in your routine, you’ll immediately start reaping benefits for overall health. “If you start caring for your gut right now,” he explains, “you’ll not only avoid or reverse many debilitating and life-threatening conditions, but you’ll also achieve your full vitality and vibrancy. In other words, you’ll enjoy true wellness. Guaranteed.”
