- Learn about the epidemiology and pathophysiology of each gastro-intestinal health problem.
- Includes critiques of available research, where possible using a GRADE framework.
- Comprehensive focus: various foods, food groups, dietary models and nutraceuticals, as well as lifestyle habits.
- Microbiome interactions, where evidence is available and consistent.
- Emphasises evidence-based practice, not mechanism-focused practice.
- Addresses common myths, controversies and contradictory claims.
