Product Description

We have the eBook version available at this link. Click here!

In the late 1980s, Jini Patel Thompson’s doctors told her that she would never be able to work, have children, or live a normal life. Tortured by widespread inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s), she was skeletally thin, weak, malnourished, suffering severe intestinal bleeding, and in almost constant pain. Despite their best efforts, the medical profession was unable to help her. Jini literally decided to heal herself, or to die trying. Refusing surgery, she began a seven-year mission researching and experimenting with home remedies and natural treatments for her illness.

Now 100% drug and surgery-free for over 20 years, Jini has become an internationally recognized expert on natural treatments for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other gastrointestinal disorders. Jini discovered eight key steps that nearly everyone with a colon or bowel disease needs to take in order to heal their gastrointestinal disorder.


1. ProvidE bowel rest using a liquid diet

2. Eliminate the disease-causing bad bacteria and fungus in the gut

3. Re-populate the gastrointestinal tract with good bacteria

4. Heal intestinal inflammation and ulceration

5. Resolve nutritional deficiencies

6. Detox your living environment

7. Address the emotional factors underlying your disease

8. Balance your hormones

In 2000, Jini made her natural healing program available to help others in her first book, Listen To Your Gut. This revised and expanded ebook version of expert Jini Patel Thompson's complete natural healing program for irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease includes a 480-page ebook and accompanying helpful assessment and tracking tools, including a 45-page Healing Journey Workbook, tests, charts, treatment plans and summaries, quick reference guides and a food diary.

Listen To Your Gut gives you the complete natural healing tools you need to heal your gastrointestinal disorder without drugs or surgery, including targeted healing diets, treatments for children with a colon or bowel disorder, and valuable information on traditional treatments such as drugs and surgery. If you implement each of Jini’s eight steps – thoroughly, preferably simultaneously, and without skipping over any of them - you will join the tens of thousands who have benefited from the fastest, most complete natural treatment plan for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, or IBS available.

Listen To Your Gut is now in its second updated and expanded print edition, and is sold in over 40 countries. Even if you have tried every bowel and colon disease treatment available without success, don’t give up hope – Jini’s natural remedies have helped tens of thousands of people worldwide. Other natural healing books from Jini Patel Thompson include Listen to Your ColonListen to Your IBS, and The IBD Remission Diet.

"The Listen to Your Gut program is a tour-de-force in better understanding our body's second brain. From the specificities of a wide variety of physical treatments, to probing the inner workings of our psyches and how they relate to our gut, it has something to offer almost anyone who has an intestinal tract. In fact, I have already recommended it to two friends with intestinal/rectal problems and begun using a few of the recommended supplements myself."

  1. Speechless 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2018

    I started the protocol sometimes in April, with just the oregano oil , and I felt better after only 2 days, then I added the probiotics , I was still taking "Prednisone" . Of course you are familiar with the "fecal calprotectin" test for the inflammation levels, even with the steroid , it was stable at 2500 ! I felt better but the levels are still that high but I didn't loose hope, my doctor stoped the Prednisone and went back to Mesalazine in Mid September, you really need to be patient !! well , last "fecal calprotectin" was in July 30 and it was still 2500, November 11 its 1000 ! when steroids failed to lower the inflammation and you know what supplements you are taking ! you must know what is healing you ! and remember , patience ! I will continue the protocol for the next few years ! thank you Jini !

  2. Jini Patel is a lifesaver and genius! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2018

    My son was diagnosed w Crohns 11 years ago. After being tortured by the medical profession for a year we pulled away and started looking for answers. Two years ago we became vegetarians and he was “better” for 2 yrs. (w the help of David Klein’s book). We felt like something was missing and that candida was playing a big part. We found your website a couple weeks ago and knew this was it! Started the liquid food regimen even before your book came and my son, Seth, is getting better and , of course, feeling bad from all the toxins exiting in his bloodstream. We’ve added all the supplements but are cutting back on oregano oil for a week or 2 and just ordered the Natren probiotics yesterday. My son is 26 and very much looking forward to getting his life back! Thank you just isn’t enough! Also, Seth found Dane Johnson’s website the same day I found yours and I am so glad that he is doing your program bc my son related to Danes story. Thank you both for saving another life. We will take it from here and spread the word! God bless you, thanking you with all my heart, Lisa Rembold

  3. Needs updating with an enclosed addenda 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2016

    Feel a bit cheated. Published in 2006 with a cover notation that it was updated. Ten years later, Thorne sells to the public. You no longer do direct consulting. There must be other things that have changed, as well. Without question, I appreciate your knowledge and your ability to impart that knowledge in an easily understand presentation whether in the book on your talks online. I have recommended the book to others, but clearly, it feels dated with the first notices about the consultation and Thorne. Makes me question the rest. Is there anything new I could learn that is missing from the current publication.


    Hello Madeleine,

    Thank you very much for your feedback. A LOT happens and is discovered between book publications. Now, obviously with a printed book, Jini can’t be updating it and making changes every six months. But she write articles in her blog, record a podcast, and videos with the new, vital information. Also please note that we offer a 365 Day, No-questions-asked Money Back Guarantee for this book.

    Regarding consultation, Unfortunately, Jini cannot legally give private health consultations to her readers. BUT we can refer you to some doctors and practitioners who are familiar with Jini's protocols. Please check Private Health Consults section at ListentoyourGut shoppe.

  4. Some protocols are useful, some are not 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2016

    I'm an ulcerative colitis patient, and bought this book and read it thoroughly and started implementing many of the mentioned protocols *religiously*.

    I realized the element diet was not effective for me, nor was the natren probiotics. Both of them caused me abdominal pains which I didn't have before starting them.

    I did find use of Udo's oil and L-glutamine effective, and agree on the emotional healing and environmental change concepts in her book. I did those and they helped in overall mental peace in me.

    In short note, not all of Jini's protocols are effective. Listen to your gut when following any protocol in her books. If you are like me with ulcerative colitis, be extremely careful as her methods as more geared towards Crohn's disease healing.


    Hi Kaushal,

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience! We have a large number of people with Ulcerative Colitis who have shared success stories with us but we're sorry to hear that the probiotics and elemental diet did not work out for you.

    All the best,
    Customer Care

    Must read for better health

  6. product review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

    Very thorough, amazing book.I was a bit overwhelmed at first between the book, blogs and interviews. However, I am very encouraged by this protocol. I was dismayed by the amount of packaging and will be buying Natren on a more local level.

  7. More info on Diverticulitis would be helpful 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2015

    I am only rating this a 3 star because there is not much in the book regarding diverticulitis.

  10. Read, Read, Read, to Heal 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2014

    I wish you could make this available for Kindle and Kobo and available on CD so listening would be an option. Maybe it is in those formats somewhere and I missed it. There is so much to read and to learn here. I will definitely keep your book close at hand for future reference, but there is so much here, to read and to learn fast, when you are in trouble. It is an overwhelming amount of useful information.
    I found the CD in the back useful, immediately.
