With more than two hundred straightforward, nutrient-dense, and appealing recipes, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook was created by GAPS Diet experts Hilary Boynton and Mary G. Brackett to help heal your gut and to manage the illnesses that stem from it.

Developed by pioneering British MD Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who provides the book’s Foreword, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders, including ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. GAPS also refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn’s disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the GAPS Diet will appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health, as well as anyone interested in the health benefits of fermentation or the Weston A. Price approach to nutrition.

In The Heal Your Gut Cookbook, readers will learn about the key cooking techniques and ingredients that form the backbone of the GAPS Diet: working with stocks and broths, soaking nuts and seeds, using coconut, and culturing raw dairy. The authors offer encouraging, real-life perspectives on the life-changing improvements to the health of their families by following this challenging, but powerful, diet.

The GAPS Diet is designed to restore the balance between beneficial and pathogenic intestinal bacteria and seal the gut through the elimination of grains, processed foods, and refined sugars and the carefully sequenced reintroduction of nutrient-dense foods, including bone broths, raw cultured dairy, certain fermented vegetables, organic pastured eggs, organ meats, and more.

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a must-have if you are following the GAPS Diet, considering the GAPS Diet, or simply looking to improve your digestive health and—by extension—your physical and mental well-being.

REVIEWS AND PRAISE

“More than half of American children are currently diagnosed with a chronic illness, and much of that statistic can be attributed to a long list of damaging exposures (from antibiotics to GMOs) that have destroyed the health of the American gut. For all the damage we have done to our gut and immune health, there is hope. Healing the gut through nutrient-dense, restorative diets like the GAPS Diet is absolutely foundational to recovery. Recovery is within reach and The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a terrific companion for that journey.”--Beth Lambert, author, A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in America’s Children, executive director, Epidemic Answers, and executive producer, The Canary Kids Project

“The GAPS diet can change your life; the challenge is how to apply it. Hilary Boynton to the rescue! She is a busy mother of five and lives by the guiding principle of “let your food be your medicine.” Along with photographer Mary Brackett, she has created this beautifully illustrated manual for creating delicious and nutritious GAPS meals. This book provides easy, mouthwatering recipes. It offers practical ways to restore your gut to optimum function, and help you and your family take control of your gut health.”--Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder, Mercola.com

Library Journal-

"Mind the GAPS! GAPS stands for either 'Gut and Psychology Syndrome’ or 'Gut and Physiology Syndrome.’ In either case, the GAPS diet is meant to address mental health and physical issues that arise from “leaky gut” and abnormal stomach bacteria. This combination cookbook and guide provides a road map and tools for those attempting to improve their intestinal biome. Beginning with a strict introductory program that also serves as an allergen screening tool, readers who choose to follow certified holistic health counselor Boynton and Brackett’s program start with a severely limited diet and then add specific food categories every few days for about a month. After this initial period, the authors recommend a less restrictive (but still fairly limiting) diet to be followed for at least two years. Meat, eggs, and coconut products are heavily featured, so cholesterol may be an issue for some. ­VERDICT Not for the fainthearted, this serious dietary regime will nonetheless be embraced by those who feel they have not been helped by other medical solutions. Purchase where there is interest.”

“The GAPS protocol is a particularly effective antidote to the standard American diet. But GAPS involves a big lifestyle change and a serious commitment to cooking from scratch. This change can be intimidating, even to experienced home cooks. Hilary Boynton's and Mary Brackett's new book makes GAPS accessible to a wide audience, both through its no-nonsense narrative and through its wealth of straightforward, delicious, and healthy recipes. It's as if she is saying, ‘You are not alone . . . and here's what we're having for dinner.’ Anyone following GAPS, or even just thinking about it, will appreciate the recipes and ideas in this book.”--Alex Lewin, author, Real Food Fermentation

“I couldn't stop reading Hilary Boynton’s and Mary Brackett's book on the GAPS diet, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook. I found myself famished for the amazing information and guidance they offer on how to improve gut health and ultimately restore optimum immune function. Hilary and Mary do a wonderful job of weaving their own personal and family stories of health redemption together with fantastic, mouth-watering recipes that build on their food philosophy. Moreover, the recipes are easy to follow. I plan to make this book available to my friends and family, so they can all benefit from the important information here.”--David Gumpert, author, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights and The Raw Milk Revolution

“Hilary is an excellent cook and has mastered the GAPS diet for her family. If you want to try the GAPS diet, this book is a must have. Her recipes are simple, nourishing, and delicious.”--Diana Rodgers, author, Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go

“Hilary Boynton is a wife, mother of five, artist, amazing cook, health coach, and cooking teacher. She, along with Mary Brackett, has created a delectable cookbook, full of recipes that are very flavorful and yummy. The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is sure to be coveted by people on the GAPS diet, as well as people looking for nutrient-dense, healthy, and delicious meals.”--Kristin Canty, director, Farmageddon: The Unseen War on American Family Farms

“Hilary Boynton, busy and dedicated mother of five, has teamed with photographer extraordinaire Mary Brackett to create a beautiful book that accurately and elegantly lays out delicious, delightful, and fun recipes for the GAPS diet. No one will be bored again while cooking to heal. The highest kudos to Hilary and Mary: The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a true gift to all of us!”--Monica Corrado, MA, CNC, traditional food chef, GAPS cooking teacher and certified nutrition consultant

“As a homeopath, this is now my recommended go-to guide for my clients and students. Instead of explaining what they ought not to eat, I now direct them to this little masterpiece. It offers freedom from worry and is loaded with satisfying meals. A must-own!”--Joette Calabrese, homeopathic consultant, author, How to Raise a Drug Free Family System

“If you feel enslaved to standard food and pharmaceutical remedies, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook provides a comprehensive can-do liberation plan. These pages scream 'freedom to be healthy!' As a farmer servicing wellness-lovers, I yearn for the kind of understanding and participation a recipe roadmap like this can offer. Wellness eaters create wellness landscapes.”--Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm

“Over my many years of healing through diet, especially healing the gut through diet, the problem has always been how to make the information and the food readily available to those in need. In the beginning the food was not to be had and the diet plans, recipes, and explanations were not to be found. Over the years this has begun to change. There are ever-expanding farmers markets, small businesses, and cooperative ventures that are filling the food-availability gap.  Hilary's and Mary's book is a valuable addition to the question of what to do with the food and why. This book is another small step in my eventual fading away, as I can finally say ‘it’s all out there now. Just follow the advice and wonderful recipes; my work is done.’”--Thomas Cowan, MD, author, The Fourfold Path to Healing, and co-author, The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care

“If you think ‘healing diet’ means renunciation of delicious foods, you are in for a surprise. The Heal Your Gut Cookbook shows that you can enjoy every morsel while your body recovers from a lifetime of nutrient deficiencies and processed food. The recipes are delicious and the book beautifully illustrated. It is a wonderful contribution to the literature on the topic.”--Sally Fallon Morell, president, The Weston A. Price Foundation

Genetic Roulette

Genetic Roulette

By Jeffrey M. Smith

Eating genetically modified food is gambling with every bite.

The biotech industry's claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this groundbreaking book. Sixty-five health risks of the foods that Americans eat every day are presented in easy-to-read two-page spreads. The left page is designed for the quick scanning reader; it includes bullets, illustrations, and quotes. The right side offers fully referenced text, describing both research studies and theoretical risks. The second half of Genetic Roulette shows how safety assessments on GM crops are not competent to identify the health problems presented in the first half. It also exposes how industry research is rigged to avoid finding problems.

This book, prepared in with input by more than 30 scientists, is for anyone wanting to understand GM technology, to learn how to protect themselves, or to share their concerns with others. It is presented in the clear, accessible style that made Jeffrey Smith's Seeds of Deception the world's best-selling book on genetically engineered foods. As the world's most complete reference on the health risks of GM foods, Genetic Roulette is also ideal for schools and libraries.

Devil in the Milk

Devil in the Milk

By Keith Woodford

This groundbreaking work is the first internationally published book to examine the link between a protein in the milk we drink and a range of serious illnesses, including heart disease, Type 1 diabetes, autism, and schizophrenia.

These health problems are linked to a tiny protein fragment that is formed when we digest A1 beta-casein, a milk protein produced by many cows in the United States and northern European countries. Milk that contains A1 beta-casein is commonly known as A1 milk; milk that does not is called A2. All milk was once A2, until a genetic mutation occurred some thousands of years ago in some European cattle. A2 milk remains high in herds in much of Asia, Africa, and parts of Southern Europe. A1 milk is common in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe.

In Devil in the Milk, Keith Woodford brings together the evidence published in more than 100 scientific papers. He examines the population studies that look at the link between consumption of A1 milk and the incidence of heart disease and Type 1 diabetes; he explains the science that underpins the A1/A2 hypothesis; and he examines the research undertaken with animals and humans. The evidence is compelling: We should be switching to A2 milk.

A2 milk from selected cows is now marketed in parts of the U.S., and it is possible to convert a herd of cows producing A1 milk to cows producing A2 milk.

This is an amazing story, one that is not just about the health issues surrounding A1 milk, but also about how scientific evidence can be molded and withheld by vested interests, and how consumer choices are influenced by the interests of corporate business.
