Each of these books offers insight into how effectively changing up your diet can lead to better health. 

Endoscopies are often performed to rule out anything serious or potentially life threatening that might be contributing to stomach and/or digestive pain. This was me after mine, before the drugs had worn off. And don't worry, everything came back normal.
