The Gastroparesis  Healing Diet is a new and only patient centered  book on this debilitating  problem.  Written by holistic  nutritionist Tammy Chang, it is  enriched by  tips  from people living with gastroparesis.  Ms Chang breaks down complex physiologic issues into a clear and usuable guide.She begins with a review of the causes and symptoms of the problem and details how it is diagnosed. She goes goes beyond limited traditional gastroparesis advice to discuss the impact of stress, FODMOP foods, and the probems of putting together a helpful health care team.
