Lots of naturopaths and alternative docs like to push these mucilaginous herbs - slippery elm, marshmallow, kudzu, arrowroot, etc., on the theory that they "coat the intestine." Well, they're also loaded with starch. Might make you feel better temporarily, but in the long run they are nothing more than food for pathogens. Very bad idea.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
