Detoxing with common sense, May 13, 2003 By P. Hickman "Patricia Hickman 'southern novelist" (Southern United States) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) This is a good book to read for following your first detox. But I did find that my body needed some protein on the second day. So I added beans to the evening meal of miso the second night and it worked like a charm. This book contains some New Age mumbo-jumbo, but if you follow the dietary plans, you will see some amazing benefits. As the book recommends, I highly recommend you stick with a strict vegi diet the week before your detox to get the most benefits. I started on a Tuesday. By the following Tuesday I had lost 9 pounds and felt so great I hated going off the detox plan. Once you try a couple of different plans in this book, you figure out what works best for you. I invested in a Green Power juicer ..., the kind that juices wheatgrass, and I'm using it like crazy. You can also pick up a book of juicing recipes that will help you find ways to make the juices more delicious. Enjoy! ... --Amazon.com

Prado "Scrapbooking forever" (Los Angeles, CA) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) This book is very concise and useful but is never overly-wordy and unnessarily complicated. Very well-thought out and great resources cited as well. If you want to re-charge and feel "cleaner" than you may be able to imagine, read this book! --Amazon.com

About the Author
Linda Page, N.D., Ph.D.
Long before natural foods and herbal formulas became a chic, widely accepted method for healing, Dr. Linda Page was sharing her extensive knowledge with those who dared to listen.
During the late seventies, she opened and operated the Rainbow Kitchen, a natural food restaurant, and became a working partner in Sonora, Californias Country Store, a natural foods store.
Through what some would call an accident of fate but she calls a blessing, she was compelled to research alternative avenues of healing. Sequestered in a hospital with a life-threatening illness, watching her 5-foot frame wither to 69 pounds, her hair drop out, and her skin peel off, doctors told her they had no cure. With only a cursory knowledge of herbs, she began a frantic research process of testing herbal formulas and healing food combinations on herself.
She read voraciously about herbal healing. Good friends shopped for herbs and she began to formulate the many compounds which would eventually save her life, revitalize her health and restore beautiful new hair and skin. It was that incident that led her to seek her degrees in Naturopathy and Nutrition.
A prolific author and educator, Dr. Page has sold over a million books including Healthy Healing, Cooking For Healthy Healing, How To Be Your Own Herbal Pharmacist, Detoxification, Party Lights and a popular series of 20 library books which address specific healing therapies for topics like menopause, male and female energy, colds and flu, and cancer. Her book Healthy Healing is a textbook for courses at UCLA, The Institute of Educational Therapy, and Clayton College of Natural Health. Dr. Page also formulates over 250 herbal formulas for Crystal Star Herbal Nutrition of Earth City, Missouri. She received one of the first herbal patents in the United States for her formulas that help balance hormones to ease menopausal symptoms.
Dr. Page is an Adjunct Professor at Clayton College of Natural Health. She is also the executive editor of a monthly national natural health newsletter, Dr. Linda Pages Natural Healing Report, published by Weiss Research of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Dr. Page appears weekly on a CBS television station with a report on natural healing; she is featured with CBS fitness reporter Bonnie Kaye on national CBS television; she is a principle speaker at national health symposiums and conventions; she is featured regularly in national magazines; she appears on hundreds of radio and television programs.
Today, Dr. Page delights in having come full circle. I feel I am living my dream. I am so grateful that knowledge of healing through herbal formulas and good foods is becoming so widespread. I see it as an opportunity for people to seize the power to heal themselves. Knowledge is power. Whether one chooses conventional medicine, alternative healing avenues, or combines them both in a complementary process, the real prescription for healing is knowledge.
