Doctor Rogers is exactly on the mark! I am a trained epidemiologist. I have always been concerned about the illness patterns that seem to be increasing in our culture. Diseases that historically were rare are almost commonplace today. Doctor Rogers has homed in on a root cause that finally describes the root cause.

In science the simplest answer that accounts for all the observations is the correct answer. Doctor Rogers has done just that in this book. She has taken all of the observations she has made clinically and the epidemiologic data and has defined the root cause that easily accounts for all the observations.

On a personal note, I only wish I had read this book years ago. I was sure that both my parents had some toxic problem. I knew it was from my experience. They both ended up being medicated for their various conditions, eventually they developed Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and rapidly deteriorated until they both died. I was looking for the answer as long as 20 years ago and I finally found it in this book.
The solutions in this book range from the simple and not expensive like the "Detox cocktail" up to the FIR Sauna that can truly improve your health but at a more costly level. She offers ways to cope with toxins from heavy metals to endocrine mimics to "mega chemicals" like PCB and halogenated hydrocarbons.
I cannot recommend this book enough. I have read outrageous claims in the past that were not well documented and very hard to believe because they offered no scientific support for their findings. Dr. Rogers uses the very best medical references to support her position and clearly knows what she is talking about.
If you or someone you love have any sudden onset disease or chronic condition or have been told by a physician that your condition "must be nerves" or "you're just getting old," read this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as well as Pain Free in 6 Weeks. I was reading a copy in my chiropractor's office and really got hooked. I wanted my own copy so I could refer back to recipes, sources, and background reasoning.

Dr. Rogers starts out by assuming she has to really (and I mean extensively) convince you and I that we are full of toxins. The air we breath, the food we eat it laced with them and our bodies defenses are tested every second of the day to rid them. Now, what happens when the body is fighting off not only toxins but internal biological threats (disease)?

Her plan involves boosting your immune and detox systems (50% of which is in your gut), changing your oil (say no to trans fats), and detoxing (cocktail, enema, and FIR sauna). I had already made the change to a healthier diet (lots of organic fruits and veggies, less processed grains and foods, whole grains, less frozen) and exercise regimen, but there is one catch. Toxins bioaccumulate. If our body has no way to deal with trans fats, mercury, etc... it stores it in the fatty tissue. Those McD's fries I ate as a kid and teenager, that margarine that they said was better than butter, all those artificial sweeteners, years of air pollution ... you get the idea. Once you reach a threshold for these toxins they start to imitate symptoms of chronic diseases.

It was fascinating to really understand cancer, remission, the immune system, and the digestive systems.

Bottom line: there are real cures out there for chronic illnesses. Drugs focus on controlling the symptoms, Dr Rogers focuses on the root cause. I feel she is very genuine in wanting to spread the truth. I found the book very informative (if a bit verbose and repetitious) and would recommend it to anyone that wants to understand what else they can do now to prevent issues in the future an enjoy a pain-free life in their golden years.

Format: Paperback
Is there anyone in your family or among your friends who is constantly sick from "mystery" symptoms that have the physicians baffled? The problem may be a lifetime's worth of toxins built up in the fat layer of that person's body from pesticides, plastics, mercury, cadmium and other harmful substances. Sherry Rogers, M.D., is a leading expert on how the environment affects our health. In this outstanding book she tells you all you need to know to diagnose and rid yourself of those toxic residues. It can be a sweaty process though . . . because safe saunas are one of the best ways to eliminate the most dangerous toxins.

If you are prepared to educate your physician in environmental medicine (with a lengthy, annotated letter in the book from Dr. Rogers to help you), this book can extend your life. You will probably have to eat better, add some nutritional supplements and aid the detoxification process with various healthy activities. Although health treatments from whatever source come with no guarantees, you certainly improve the likelihood that you will have a healthier life with fewer unpleasant symptoms.

Lest you think that only "sick" people need this book, Dr. Rogers points out that younger people are often piling up toxins faster than their elders . . . because the environment is less healthy now than it was when elders were younger. As the book points out, even Eskimo mothers find their own milk filled with toxins. So even babies cannot avoid contamination. Detoxification is the key. With this book, you'll know what to do.
