    I 100% agree with the notion that modern medicine needs to wake up and pay more attention to gut health and what we eat. I don't know that we all need to go on 10-day juice cleanses to get back on track to better health, but Dr. Junger might disagree -- no wonder he and Gwyneth Paltrow...

    3.5 stars. I think other books have explained some of the "whys" better of why you should do an elimination diet (as well as why you're eliminating what you're eliminating, besides "these are inflammatory--avoid"), but I thought it was fairly straightforward. It might have been a littl...

    There's very little research cited in this book and I felt like he was just going off anecdote much of the time. The information was poorly organized and repetitive and at least 1/4 of the book was really just personal memoir (how he came to understand why proper gut function is essent...

    Update: I read this book a few years ago --(my review is 'dated') --- but this book is helpful --useful --to those who want to read (ha) about colon health. -- I've listen to Junger speak several times --read 'all' his books. Truth is there is a wide variety of diseases related to the ...

    I have his other book, Clean, and we've followed his cleanse once a year for the past few years. This is a newer cleanse he came up with so we tried it this fall. I actually like this one better because you can eat a salad for dinner instead of just a juice. There are also some great r...

    The gut is our body's second brain and an unhealthy gut is the root cause of so many chronic diseases, inflammation, allergies and emotional depression. This book gives guidance on how to eat to regain a healthy gut; essentially using food as medicine. There are two parts to his ap...

    Dr. Junger claims that most diagnosed ailments from chronic pain, heart disease, digestion issues, depression, extra weight, allergies, inflammation, etc. can be traced back to an injured and irritated gut. He does a good job of explaining how the gut works and how it gets ill or compr...

    I believe in the idea that disease comes from within but not mentally at a place to cut out so much. Easy to read and thankfully not to technical. Wanted more recipes and suggestions on smaller ways to incorporate this process. ...

    Same claims as paleo, but less scientifically explained (if you really dig into paleo stuff) and even more restrictive. I agree with his main premise; toxic diet, root of all health evils, inflammation bad, etc. I just can't do the diet. ...

    That most if not all ailments start in the gut makes a lot of sense. I plan to do the cleanse and change some nasty habits I have, but I wonder who has time to make shakes every morning for 21 days unless they do not work or have a personal chef! I know I am always rushing out the door...

    I have a problem with my body dumping oxalates when I eat foods that are really good for me, like spinach and chard. When this happens I feel absolutely terrible for days - short-of-breath, irritible, panicky. Most people can process oxalates out of their gut, but others absorb oxalate...

    Mielenkiintoinen kirja vatsaongelmista kärsiville. Vaikea sanoa kuinka hyvin tämän tyypin mainostama ruokaremontti voisi toimia, mutta ei kai olisi haittaa kokeillakaan. Kirjailija on lääkäri joka on myös perehtynyt ns. vaihtoehtomenetelmiin, joskin hän itse kutsuu sitä kokona...

    Logical, informative approach and a good overall guide to health/clean eating. I enjoyed this because, unlike many other resources, it gave reasons, suggestions and options, and tips on how to actually carry things out. ...

    I disagree completely with the spiritual beliefs in this book. That being said his premise on our gut being our second brain made a lot of sense. He points out that 90 percent of seratonin is made in the gut. Inflammation all over the body (systemic) leads to disease. I will not do the...

    Alejandro Junger does it again! Packed with a wealth of information on how to eliminate the root cause of illness, but done in terms that are easy for anyone to understand. Junger's passion for health and helping others is evident throughout the book. His positive attitude shine throug...

    Dr. Junger's book, "Clean Gut," makes a lot of sense. His study of the gut has shown that most ailments and diseases originate there and cause problems in various parts of the body, such as asthma, allergies, and heart disease. I have found that to be true in my own life. I started exp...

    I really liked the science in this book. The details about what is going on with neurotransmitters in our digestive tract I thought were very interesting and made perfect sense. The problem I have with this book is that he tells us the way to fix this is to eat a difficult to master di...

    I'm not a doctor or a scientist. I picked up this book because it intrigued me. I've been reading about probiotics and thought this would have some useful info. Well - it did some good explaining of the digestive system. Now, whether all our illnesses are caused by an unbalanced gut...

    I read the book and started the diet. Doing this for medical reasons because I have stomach issues, not to lose a couple pounds (but I won't be sad if that happens!) I do have issues with the diet, especially if people decide to do this indefinitely because unless you're allergic or se...

    I like his story, how he came to practice functional medicine. I haven't heard of functional medicine before. The concept makes sense. I hate doctors who give you a bag of antibiotics to deal with a dysfunction. There are so many things that go into why we get sick in the first place. ...

    Before I read this book I already knew the root of all disease begins in the gut. I did not know this includes depression. Serotonin is partly produced in the digestive tract. I appreciate the analogy between a person's "gut" and gardening. A good gardener doesn't tend only to the ...

    No need to read cover to cover if you understand the digestive system. I fully believe the root of most if not all our problems is harbored in our gut bacteria, just not sure this is the best diet/detox to follow. ...

    Clean Gut is an interesting read for many reasons. For me, it was almost like four books in one. It starts out like a memoir about the author's medical career, influences, and health struggles. Then the book transitions to a lesson on "the gut" and how our overall health is influenced ...

    I hate diet books. Not because they're all useless or necessarily unhelpful, but because most of them are an over-hyped, prententious and scientifically shaky sales pitch. Someone is always selling you something and making money in the process from their breakthrough never-before-disco...

    I found this book a little bit difficult to use in a pragmatic way. The science described might be very true, but it is impossible to live in a world where we would not be exposed to dirt. I think that it is a little edgy to state that if you go to the pool for a while, then your gu...
