I found The Art of Digestive Wellness to be a comprehensive treatment of the digestive process and its critical role in health. - Ruth DeBusk, PhD, RDN, Geneticist and Clinical Nutritionist
The Art of Digestive Wellness course is a must-have - Dr. Lipski distills complex scientific concepts in an easy-to-understand format. The assessments, action plans, and information sheets alone are worth more than the price of enrollment. - Virginia Darrow-Menegaz, MS, RDN, LDN, CMHIMP
I love this book. As an Integrative MD, the amount of information that I have to sift through to learn what's important for my patients is immense. Lipski presents her data in a way that is easy to read, assimilate and disseminate to my patients. This book has been very helpful for my practice AND I recommend it to my patients who are interested in higher level learning on their conditions. Way to go! - Lynn Wagner, MD Amazon Review in the United States on February 7, 2020
