The Inside Tract

The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut Guide to Great Digestive Health is a labor of love that I co-authored with my colleague, Dr. Gerard Mullin, who I met years ago at a professional training program that I design called “Food As Medicine”.   Dr. Mullin is an integrative gastroenterologist, nutritionist, and compassionate physician who practices at Johns Hopkins Hospital.  We decided to partner on this book since our mutual passion and clinical work has focused on gastrointestinal health and disease.  This book contains our collective wisdom from many years of practice and our scholarly research in gut health.  As you will see from the Table of Contents, we have included evidence-based science and background information to expand our readers understanding of digestive health, practical strategies including a 3 Tract Nutrition plan with menus and recipes to restore digestive function, natural remedies and supplements helpful in healing the gut and mind body practices for long-term health and healing.   We have integrated the best of nutritional medicine in The Inside Tract and we hope that it is a helpful resource to you in your health journey.  Thank-you for sharing our dream to help alleviate suffering.

Nutritional Wisdom

In general, mankind, since the improvement in cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires. Benjamin Franklin


“My many years of suffering from IBS were put to rest after meeting with Kathie. I am so grateful I finally found her and my doctors should be too!”

Stacey K.
Lubbock, TX

"I suffered from an autoimmune condition and was on one too many medications. I knew there was a different way and I found it with Kathie's help. She created a low-allergy eating plan and prescribed some key supplements that lessened the burden on my immune system. And over time, my autoimmune condition improved dramatically and I am now medication and pain free."

Lynn S., Myrtle Beach, SC

“I first met Kathie at a Diabetes workshop at Kripalu My high blood sugars are a thing of the past. But our connection will be ongoing as she coaches me when the going gets rough.”
