Throughout the book, Dr. Axe provides a vast array of advice, tools and techniques that helps readers acknowledge the vital importance of eating healthy, teaching the reader how to welcome a little more dirt back into their lives and how it plays an essential role in people’s mental and physical health.  One important factor I acquired from reading this amazing book on leaky gut was that it's crucial for individuals to maintain a healthy diet and incorporate a little dirt into their daily regimen.  The teaching in this book, helps the reader understand that by creating a healthy diet, spending more time outside, eating seasonally, managing stress, and incorporating probiotic-rich foods into our diet lifestyle, can help improve overall health.

In the middle of the book on page 69, Dr. Axe discusses food and inflammation; he reports that a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming hydrogenated oils greatly increases inflammation throughout the entire body.  One fact that really grasped my attention when reading the book was the research he provided by a study in Nutrition and Cancer demonstrated that people who consume processed meats have a greater risk of cancer and in 2015, the Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorized processed meat as equivalent to cigarettes and asbestos in terms of cancer risk.  Dr. Axe devotes a whole chapter in chapter 5, which provides excellent information, which entails the worst food for your gut.  I found the information in this chapter extremely valuable and effective.

Eating well is not only necessary for well-being, but it is vital for each individual to eat well and live a healthy lifestyle so they can function well. Sadly, most people do not eat well because of the various responsibilities that they have to do. With looming deadlines and hard tasks that need to be accomplished immediately, people tend to always be on the go or their just too tired to prepare a healthy meal and put their health on the line as they increase their risk of developing illnesses, diseases and even the possibility of death.  The trick is how do we get change our lifestyle?

In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you can transform your health. A life filled with good health, energy and strong mental health.
