Why we chose this book

This book was recommended by multiple dietitians who said they used it in practice and they wanted a course. The author is a physician and parent of a child who had a severe learning disability, which has now fully resolved. She studied nutrition, gut health , and how they relate and affect health. Very interesting approach!
