I was skeptical at first but once I got going it changed my life. Lactose intolerance and reflux are a thing of the past and it helped immensely with my IBS.

I have been to several doctors in the past and all they say is to take fiber but they don’t tell you how. This book outlines it all for you. All I can say is Dr. Jones’ book worked for me.

I bought this for my husband who’s been suffereing with chronic constipation for about 15 years. Following the fiber program outlined in this book made him feel better within a week. I know this sounds too good to be true and I’m usually skeptical of online reviews, but you have to TRY the advice outlined in this book if you’re suffereing from any painful GI problems. Experiment and see the results for yourself.

This Works!

If you have constipation and you think you know all about fiber, read this book. As a health-conscious woman who has suffered from constipation since childhood, I could not figure out why all the usual constipation advice – fiber supplements, whole grains, bran, fruits and vegetables, water, exercise – never seemed to work for very long. In very accessible language, the author explains why, and he sketches out a regimen that progressively gets you to where you are making two regular, effortless, productive bathroom trips a day. I’ve been on the program for four months now and I am astonished at the results, and I started getting those results within the first week.

The author is a doctor specializing in gastroenterology who developed and fine-tuned the program over many years of working with patients with severe constipation and other GI problems. He’s not selling anything, everything you need you can get at the supermarket, he presents lots of fiber options with their pros and cons and shows sample combinations, and he gives very specific instructions on how to progress. It’s not difficult or impractical or time-consuming, and it really works.

I have always worked out to keep in shape, but by early afternoon my belly was always bloated. I couldn’t eat foods like beans or broccoli. All of that has changed; my belly stays flat all day, and I can eat what I like without gas pain or bloating. The constipation is gone; no more straining to crank out mere pellets. I had no idea how effortless it’s supposed to be. I highly recommend this book and this program.

While most readers of this book may purchase and read it to resolve a personal health problem, I think another very real value is that it provides a very good description of optimal GI health and functionality. We spend a lot of time reading, learning and practicing habits and ways of living that we are told are beneficial for us. However, we often neglect the overall function of the GI tract.

Optimal health is much more than simply absence of disease. We should heed Dr. Jones’ advice for achieving and maintaining GI health as an integral part of our overall healthy lifestyle.

Constipation is one of life’s most pressing problems
In 50 years of medical practice I have never really been able to give my patients advice which in every case would manage their constipation.

Dr. Jones’ detailed fiber management program,simply and succinctly described in this book, now provides a management protocol which works. In straight forward language Dr Jones describes how fiber control of constipation will relieve irritable bowel, diarrhea, gas and abdominal pain. The resulting gastrointestinal health will go a long way in ameliorating a whole host of general medical, neurological and behavioral problems.

My wife and I have instituted Dr. Jones’ fiber program in our own lives and have cured constipation.
