'Stomach aches, pain, gas, bloating, discomfort, or worse? Is there a way to settle things down and avoid the problems associated with the digestive system?
With more than 25 years’ experience as a Board Certified Gastroenterologist, Dr. Shekhar Challa has written a new book, Probiotics for Dummies, which takes the mystery out of the way bacteria behaves in the body and describes exactly what you need to do to exert a positive control over your digestive system and everything else that depends on it.
