The Bloat Cure
The essential tools you need to banish bloat for good, in this comprehensive A to Z guide that will help you identify and treat the root cause of your bloating.
Dr. Robynne Chutkan, founder of the Digestive Center for Wellness, a faculty member at Georgetown University Medical Center, and author of the acclaimed Gutbliss and The Microbiome Solution, is an expert on bloat. In her practice she has treated thousands of women plagued by excess or uncomfortable gas and a ballooning mid-section. In her third book, The Bloat Cure: 101 Solutions for Real and Lasting Relief, Dr. Chutkan gives readers everywhere the essential tools they need to banish bloat for good.
With The Bloat Cure, women will find lasting relief and an effective and healthy way to get back into their skinny jeans. This must-have book details a comprehensive, A-Z list of triggers that help identify the root cause of bloating, from hidden belly disrupters lurking in our medicine cabinet and environment to bloat-inducing foods we may not realize we’re eating. Whether it’s the artificial sweeteners in your sports drink, an undetected thyroid problem, or one of the other 101 common causes, Dr. Chutkan investigates what could be going wrong and what you can do to fix it.
Some causes of bloat require just a simple fix, like changing your cough medicine to one without codeine; some are more complex, like figuring out how to repair a damaged intestinal lining. The Bloat Cure explains the signs and symptoms of benign causes of bloat as well as more ominous ones that may require immediate medical attention. Once you pinpoint your condition, Dr. Chutkan offers solutions to stop your triggers, rehabilitate your system, and get your GI tract running like a well-oiled machine.
What could be causing your bloat? And how can you fix it?
- You could have Aerophagia (or swallowing air); you should stop chewing gum and limit talking on the phone while eating.
- Or it could be your Birth Control Pills; you should talk to your doctor about possible insulin resistance or the effects of high-estrogen contraceptives.
- Or you may be eating too many Cruciferous Vegetables (that’s right! Your nutritious veggies could be causing your bloat!); you should add lemon juice to these “good gas” veggies to help stimulate digestive enzymes.
Packed with essential advice from a trusted physician, The Bloat Cure is the path to immediate relief readers everywhere have been waiting for.

I have an entire shelf of “gut” books, and this one added a great deal to my collection. It’s an easy read, not creating eye glaze due to too many scientific nuances. Each of the 101 cause/solution entrees is from one to three pages, though a few are longer. I learned a LOT despite my “gut mini-library.
