How doctor H started their book cover journey
Healthy Gut, Healthy You: The Personalized Plan to Transform Your Health from the Inside Out
Dr. Michael Ruscio
Dr. Michael Ruscio is a doctor seeing patients in his clinical practice in Norther California. In addition he is a clinical researcher and international lecturer. Many years ago he overcame numerous health ailments by improving the health of his gut and now is leading a movement to make integrative medicine more efficient and cost effective so that healthcare consumers can utilize natural health solutions without having to spend large amounts of money or resort to elaborate health interventions.
Over 2,000 years ago Hippocrates said all disease begins in the gut and this is even more true today. With the wide-spread use of antibiotics and changes in our environment, the healthy bacteria in our guts that are needed for well-being are dwindling. This is the root cause of many health ailments but this fact eludes most people and most doctors. This causes people to treat symptoms rather than root cause. The good news is that if you can improve the health of your gut and all the bacteria it contains you can experience improvements in almost any health condition, this holds true even if you don’t have digestive symptoms. If you’re suffering with depression, fatigue, weight gain, insomnia or hypothyroid – there is a good chance the root cause of the issue is a problem in the gut. This book will provide you with one of the most innovative self-help plans available to date. By following this plan you can achieve notable health improvements without needing to become a health nut, follow crazy diets or spend a fortune. If you are confused about things like gluten free, probiotics, low carb, the paleo diet, leaky gut, and detoxification this book will provide you a personalized plan to navigate these options efficiently and effectively.
A range of readers. Lay people interested in improving their health up through healthcare providers looking to learn more about this area.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
This book has been written to be the authoritative work on the subject, while also holding true on the promise of 'get to the point and tell me how to get well'. It is important it appear credible and official but also appealing to the lay reader. A clean, crisp professional look should be able to achieve this.
