Reece also discusses how to achieve optimal health the naturopathic way, what you should grow in your garden and he also takes us on a tour of the materia medica, the wonderful world of medicinal herbs. Powered by the latest research into the gut–brain axis, The Happy Gut will show you the pathway to everyday good gut health.

The whole wellness world is going nuts for guts, and with good reason. The discovery that the gut and brain are not distinct and separate entities but closely connected is life-changing for everyone. Now, it is impossible to ignore the importance of gut health to chronic health complaints. As we discover strong links between bloating and brain fog, diarrhea and depression, and aches and anxiety, it seems clearer than ever that we need to support our guts with the utmost care.
