Almost all of us have had that “huh?” moment when you step on the scale to discover you’re three pounds heavier than you were the night before, or you struggle to button jeans that fit fine a week ago. Chances are, you’re bloated, constipated, retaining water, or some combination of all three. The Internet is full of extreme “cures”—juice cleanses, laxatives, supplements, diets, and herbal remedies—but most are ineffective and based on junk science. Frustrated by doctors who have little advice to offer, many women try to self-diagnose, and worry they might be suffering from a serious condition, like celiac disease, parasites, or even ovarian cancer.

In Gutbliss, Dr. Robynne Chutkan, one of the leading gastroenterologists in the country, offers a groundbreaking, one-stop guide to digestive wellness, and a program to finally give women the tools they need for true and lasting relief. Dr. Chutkan explains the root causes of bloating and gas, offers steps to alleviate symptoms, and outlines a nutrition and exercise plan for optimizing gastrointestinal health. Research-based and gimmick-free, Gutbliss will show you how to ditch your digestive baggage once and for all by providing:

  • A fascinating trip down your gastrointestinal superhighway, with a primer on why GI problems are worse for women
  • A startling list of the most common ways in which Western women inadvertently mess with their GI health
  • Expert analysis of symptoms that could indicate a serious underlying condition
  • A complete, simple, and easy-to-follow 10-day tune-up plan for cleaning out the pipes, boosting healthy bacteria, and restoring the GI system to good working order.

Based on her work with thousands of patients, Dr. Chutkan’s program will help you liberate yourself and your digestive tract from the oppression of the daily bloat, ineffective quick fixes, and unnecessary procedures and prescriptions. Get ready to find your gutbliss for good.
