You've just gotten an ileostomy. Now what?

Living with an ileostomy seems daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. In My Other Bag’s a Prada: Quick and Dirty Tips for Surviving an Ileostomy, author and ileostomy veteran AW Cross gives you a first-hand, non-medical perspective of what to expect from your ileostomy and how to cope successfully day-to-day.

Through a straightforward blend of practicality and humor, you’ll learn how to:

•Survive the physical consequences and emotional impact of having an ostomy
•Choose your appliance, your accessories, and change your bag
•Cope with odor, leaks, obstructions, and skin damage
•Pack a survival kit and navigate the outside world
•Dress, eat, and have sex
•Deal with healthcare professionals and enjoy your stays in the hospital
•Manage the ignorant public and use social media to your advantage

Whether you’ve just gotten your ileostomy, or you’ve had it for years, if you’re determined to own it like a boss, this book is for you.

If you’d rather suffer blow-outs and bagtastrophies, have no sense of humor about your stoma, and hate puppies and sunshine, DON’T BUY THIS BOOK!

About the author

 AW Cross is a former scientist and agriculturalist-turned-author and blogger. She was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2009, and since then has run the gamut of IBD from ileostomy to j-pouch before being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2016. Intended to be humorous-but-pragmatic guides, her Quick and Dirty Tips for Surviving series was written as a response to her personal experience with her condition and what she felt was a lack of positive and practical day-to-day advice for patients.

"Love your LIVER and LIVE longer"

Doctor of Natural Medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome.

Do you have a leaky gut? For 80% of the population the answer is “yes”—and most people don’t even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis.

To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome.

In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern “improvements” to our food supply—including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains—have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it’s essential to get a little “dirty” in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil.

Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main “gut types” and offers customizable plans—including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations—to dramatically improve gut health in just thirty days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help readers restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.
