Hello! And welcome to the first blog post for You Are NOT What You Eat!
It’s an exciting, busy time as I transition from talking to my computer for the last 6 months, to thankfully talking with human beings again. (That’s the joy of finishing the research, writing, editing and publishing of a new book, and moving into the realm of telling others about it.)
Early reviews and feedback have been excellent, which is a wonderful reward after so long working in isolation. So please don’t hesitate to let me know your thoughts and ask any questions you might have.
If you’ve read the book, you know how passionate I am about the subject of digestion and its vital role in every aspect of our health. And you also know that much of my passion was born out of my own chronic digestive problems – problems that are now a distant memory!
The road to digestive health for me was a long arduous journey that literally took me around the world. The solutions I found fit perfectly with the latest medical science. And as a former nurse trained in the Western medical model, that was important to me.
But the solutions have nothing to do with what to eat, and everything to do with how we eat. And it turns out this approach to digestive problems has been used in the ancient medical systems of Asia for thousands of years.
My education in the Western medical model taught me the value of double-blind, peer-reviewed, randomized studies. But my training in Japan and India taught me the value of thousands of years of clinical experience. Somewhere between the two is where I found the road to the vibrant health and energy I enjoy today. And those of you who know the frustration of digestive problems like I do, know what a remarkable feeling it is to be healthy again!
As we begin this journey together, I hope you’ll share your experiences so that others might benefit. And again, please let me know if you have any questions.
With every good wish!
