They Told Jordan Rubin There Was No Cure. He Proved Them Wrong.

Not long ago, Crohn's disease nearly ended Jordan Rubin's life. A once healthy teenager, Jordan began experiencing the debilitating effects of the painful and potentially fatal wasting intestinal illness, with his ravaged body eventually falling prey to some eighteen other serious ailments. In desperation, he consulted more than seventy medical experts in seven countries, and tried hundreds of nutritional supplements, with no results. Finally, without hope or recourse, Jordan took his health into his own hands, researching and refining a revolutionary wellness program based on a more historically and biologically correct diet, including the use of fermented foods and homeostatic soil organisms (HSOs), an often-overlooked but critical component of our ancestors' primitive diet.

Within months of beginning the program, Jordan Rubin's health improved to a remarkable degree, and today he is in peak physical condition, completely free of disease or medications of any kind. He calls his regimen the Guts and Glory Program, but if you suffer from Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), acid reflux, chronic candida, food allergies, or any of a host of other digestive or systemic disorders, you'll call it amazing. Simple, natural, and true to our bodies' unique biology, the immensely healthful Guts and Glory dietary program can make a tremendous difference in your life.

The Guts and Glory Program helps heal:

    Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Gluten or lactose intolerance

  • Candida (yeast) infections

  • Food allergies

  • Recurring or persistent nausea

  • Chronic constipation

  • Urinary tract infections

  • And many more serious aliments

Jordan Rubin has traveled a long and painful journey, and now he wants to help you onto the road to better health! In this important book, you'll learn:

  • Why fermented foods and HSOs are vital to good health—and why they're missing from today's diets

  • How a “primitive” lifestyle offers very modern health benefits

  • How to find and prepare delicious meals the primitive way

  • What dietary supplements can help—and which to avoid!
