All disease begins in the gut.

The gut is not like Las Vegas. What happens in the gut does not stay in the gut.

I’m an Ohio State and Vanderbilt — trained MD gastroenterologist with more than four decades of experience practicing and educating health care professionals, my patients, and the public. I began practicing gastroenterology in the summer of 1977 in Columbus, Ohio, where I grew up. I have a passion and skill for bridging the divide between traditional and natural healing disciplines. I provide the best of mainline gastroenterology with integrative, functional, naturopathic, and complementary/alternative medicine. Learn more on my website:
Research confirms three important concepts directly relevant to your life:
• Problems with gut-brain interaction have a lot to do with causation of chronic GI disorders.
• The resident microbes (gut microbiome) are very important for both gut and whole health.
• We’re all in an epidemic of chronic gut and bodily symptoms, syndromes, illness, and disease with a root cause linking them.
Addressing young doctors, Albert Schweitzer, MD, Nobel Prize winning physician said,
The witch doctor succeeds for the same reason all the rest of us succeed. Each patient carries his or her own doctor inside of him or her. They come to us not knowing that truth.
We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.
READ MY BOOK AND DISCOVER THE DOCTOR IN YOU!

And it’s probably honest, in a way, to give the overview and be clear in multiple ways that things are complex — that the solution is not just a pill away and that you (whether you like it or not) are going to have to be in the driver’s seat for your health care — or at least share the front seat with your physicians. That’s one of the hardest things, I expect, for patients to accept — that they cannot surrender themselves to a physician and not work on assisting in diagnosis and treatment.

I was thinking about how the patient has to take an active lead in the treatment and work in partnership with the doctor, and where it should go in your new book, and it occurred to me that perhaps it should be a foreword that is read before the patient ever even ventures into the meat of the subject. That way the reader knows from the get go that the ball is in his or her court, which is a different way of thinking than most traditionally approach their doctor-patient relationship.

For me, what finally brought about my long term relief and lasting healing was working with Dr. Salt to heal my intestinal permeability, also known as “leaky gut.” I have been fortunate enough to experience firsthand why Dr. Salt shines as an integrative physician; he’s a healthy balance between conventional and functional medicine.
The regard with which you engage me and listen to me as a collaborative partner in my health care have made me not just a better, healthier patient, but a more knowledgeable and confident resource for lots of patients you’ve never met. I expect this wonderful book will grow those numbers of patients helped by William Salt II, MD even more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
