Ancient & New Medical Wisdom, Digestion & Gas

Authored by Joseph Weiss, MD

AirVeda: Ancient & New Medical Wisdom, Digestion & Gas covers the remarkable advances in the understanding of digestive health and wellness. New information about the critical role of genomics, epigenetics, the gut microbiome, and the gut-brain-microbiome-diet axis are opening new avenues to optimal whole body health and wellness. An appreciation of the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and other disciplines reveals an advanced insight into the nature of the human body and a holistic approach. Although intestinal gas, basic bodily functions, and feces have been topics culturally suppressed, knowledge and understanding are needed to achieve and maintain optimal health. The volume is authored by a physician and educator who is a specialist in gastroenterology. Written for the intelligent lay public, the medical and scientific terminology is translated into plain English. Extensive knowledge about the physiology and science of digestive issues, including the fart, burp, and bloat often associated with the digestive process, is clearly explained. It covers everything you ever wanted to know about farts and digestion, but were either too afraid or too embarrassed to ask. This volume, and others in the series, provide an informative and entertaining in depth look at the amazing world of human health and digestion.

"In Dr. Joseph Weiss' book, AirVeda, he provides an informative and entertaining approach to sharing insights about our digestive system and wellbeing by applying the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to everyday life." Deepak Chopra, MD
