Gut Book Description :

Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain and yet we know very little about how it works. Gut: The Inside Story is an entertaining, informative tour of the digestive system from the moment we raise a tasty morsel to our lips until the moment our body surrenders the remnants to the toilet bowl. No topic is too lowly for the author’s wonder and admiration, from the careful choreography of breaking wind to the precise internal communication required for a cleansing vomit. Along the way, the author provides practical advice such as the best ways to sit on the toilet to have a comfortable bowel movement, how clean your kitchen should be for optimum gut health, and how different laxatives work. She tells stories of gut bacteria that can lead to obesity, autoimmune diseases, or even suicide, and she discusses the benefits of dietary supplements such as probiotics. This book is a fascinating primer for anyone interested in how our ideas about the gut are changing in the light of cutting-edge scientific research. In the words of the author, “We live in an era in which we are just beginning to understand just how complex the connections are between us, our food, our pets and the microscopic world in, on, and around us. We are gradually decoding processes that we used to believe were part of our inescapable destiny.”

You don’t have to be in pain! You don’t have to pop antacids after every meal, or rely on prescription drugs to coax your gastrointestinal system to do what it’s supposed to. Whether you suffer from chronic indigestion or from a more serious condition such as Crohn’s disease, it is possible to find relief and return to a comfortable, healthy way of eating and living. In Gut Reactions, Dr. Raphael Kellman, a pioneer in the practice of complementary medicine, draws upon the best conventional Western treatments and holistic therapies to offer a breakthrough, all-natural program for treating a variety of stomach complaints with safe, lasting results. Building on the revolutionary idea of the mind-gut connection, Kellman’s four-step program guides you in understanding your symptoms and obtaining an accurate diagnosis, and then helps you tailor a healing regimen to your specific condition. His unique bio-ecological diet (complete with four weeks of menus and recipes) works with nutritional supplements, herbal therapies, and mind-body exercises to manage symptoms and in many cases restore normal gut function. Enlightened and comprehensive, Gut Reactions provides specific treatment plans for: Antacid “addiction” Inflammatory bowel disease Crohn’s disease Acid reflux (esophageal reflux disease) Constipation Ulcers Low gastric acitvity Dysbiosis “Leaky gut” syndrome Heartburn Gluten sensitivity Gastritis Irritable bowel syndrome Parasitic disease

Methods in Gut Microbial Ecology for Ruminants Book Description :

Asaresultofvarioushumanactivities,suchasincreaseinhumanpopulation,decrease in arable land due to soil degradation, urbanization, industrialization and associated increase in the demand for livestock products, dramatic changes are occurring in the global ruminant livestock sector. These changes includeshift inthesize of regional livestock populations and in the types of management and feeding systems under which ruminant livestock are held, and increased demand of a wider range of quality attributes from animal agriculture, not just of the products themselves but also of the methods used in their production. The livestock sector will need to respond to newchallengesofincreasinglivestockproductivitywhileprotectingenvironmentand human health and conservingbiodiversity and natural resources. The micro-organisms in the digestive tracts of ruminant livestock have a profound in?uence on the conversion offeedinto end products, which can impact on the- imal and theenvironment. As the livestock sector grows particularly in developing countries, there will be an increasing need to understand these processes for b- ter management and use ofbothfeed and other natural resources that underpinthe development of sustainable feeding systems.

The Gut as a Model in Cell and Molecular Biology Book Description :

There are many separate groups working in gut biology, and they feel that the gut is an excellent model for investigating general problems in differentiation, growth control, stem cell biology, and regeneration and adaptive responses. There is a pressing need to define the objectives of the next 5 to 10 years, and the meeting, Part III of the Gastroenterology Symposia Freiburg 1996 (Falk Symposium No. 94), held in Freiburg, Germany, October 25-26, brought together some of these groups with a view to identifying areas which are not being utilized and need to be exploited, such as transgenic and knockout approaches, retrovirus delivery systems, and model cell/tissue systems. The main themes of the book are gastrointestinal development and differentiation, gut stem cell biology, and the control of gut growth in normal and abnormal situations. Basic research findings are related to clinical situations, and the book will appeal not only to gut cell and molecular biologists, but also to gastroenterologists interested in the potential applications of these subject areas.
