The Heal Your Gut Cookbook

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook

By Hilary Boynton and Mary Brackett

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.

Your Baby's Microbiome

Your Baby's Microbiome

By Toni Harman and Alex Wakeford

From the Directors of the Award-Winning Documentary Microbirth

At least two amazing events happen during childbirth.

There’s the obvious main event, which is the emergence of a new human into the world. But there’s another event taking place simultaneously, a crucial event that is not visible to the naked eye, an event that could determine the lifelong health of the baby. This is the seeding of the baby’s microbiome, the community of “good” bacteria that we carry with us throughout our lives.

The seeding of the microbiome, along with breastfeeding and skin-to-skin contact, kick-starts the baby’s immune system and helps protect the infant from disease across a lifetime. Researchers are discovering, however, that interventions such as the use of synthetic oxytocin, antibiotics, C-sections, and formula feeding interfere with, or bypass completely, the microbial transfer from mother to baby. These bacteria are vital for human health, and science has linked an imbalance in the human microbiome with multiple chronic diseases.

Drawing on the extensive research they carried out for their documentary film Microbirth, authors Toni Harman and Alex Wakeford reveal a fascinating new view of birth and how microscopic happenings can have lifelong consequences, for ourselves, our children—and our species as a whole.

Talking About Single Payer

Talking About Single Payer

By James F. Burdick

By controlling expenses that do not help patients, a single payer system will simplify our health care system, improve the quality of care, and provide savings that far exceed the cost of extending coverage to every American.

Johns Hopkins transplant surgeon Dr. James Burdick outlines a viable approach to improving health care delivery to cover every American. Quality will be improved while costs will be lowered, ending the misery and grievances plaguing U.S. health care today.

The essence of the plan is to empower a transparent, apolitical national public-private Doctors Board to independently oversee care using a new approach to monitor quality.  Joined with a convenient national electronic medical record system, this unique single payer system will free doctors to deal with each patient individually.  With these innovations, Dr. Burdick’s plan also limits market influences and politics in medical decisions so that each patient can receive care appropriate to their personal medical needs.

Thirty interviews with a broad range of authorities provide startling new insights about the adoption of a single payer structure for American health care. These expert opinions complement Dr. Burdick's own clinical and Federal experience as a leader in overseeing the country's organ transplantation program.

Through these unique initiatives, Dr. Burdick provides commonsense solutions to the political and social challenges currently anchoring American health care to costly and medically inferior practices.  Such progress, Dr. Burdick predicts, is more possible now than ever before. The time is right for single payer!
