From Publishers Weekly

Commonly used in ancient and traditional societies, herbal cleansing remains central to health care in Asian, Indian and Native American cultures. In her five-part RENEW program, written with physician Smith, nutritional consultant Watson (The Fiber35 Diet) applies her winning style, demonstrated in her PBS specials, to educate readers about pervasive toxins that cause alarming rates of illness and death. With facts, studies and statistics, Watson contends that consumers cannot rely on regulating agencies to protect them (for example, in 1972 the U.S. banned the carcinogen DDT, but it is still produced here, exported to other countries and then imported back in DDT-treated foods grown there). The program, running from six weeks for basic and advanced cleanses to 14 weeks with optional liver and heavy-metal cleanses, shows readers how to reduce exposure; eliminate toxins from their bodies; and support their natural detox capacity with herbal supplements, diet, exercise and such treatments as colonics and therapeutic baths. Watson includes a few recipes, sample menus and a schedule for periodic cleanses. The weight of toxic exposure from unavoidable sources (pesticides, dental work, processed foods, home furnishings, clothing, playground equipment and fluorescent lighting, among many others) can seem overwhelming, but Watson's balanced approach provides readers with effective ways to gradually lessen the load.

Last year I accumulated all of Debra Watson's books, learned about the digestive system and the merits of a clean colon, and divested myself of 20 lbs. of body fat. With this book I aimed to get enough inspiration and information to repeat the feat this year. So far, I've lost 3 lbs. of body fat since I got her newest book, but I also have become more conscious of all the different ways we pollute our bodies, our homes and our world.

What I like about her books is that she makes it easy and guilt free to just change a small thing at at time. The cumulative effect is great and you don't feel like you've had to toss out your pantry, remodeled your home or be conversant about the latest sign of global warming. She just gently nudges you to make the small changes that will make a difference.

By the way, she looks a lot younger and better with her new haircut!

As my readers may know, I work in the spa retreat industry as the resident Pilates Teacher at the Como Shambhala Retreat at Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos. Right now the big spa buzz word is "Detox". People want detoxifying diets, detoxifying spa treatments, detoxifying products, and detoxifying activities such as Pilates and Yoga. Needless to say, I was more than interested to read a Detox book writtenn by well known PBS personality, bestselling author, and naturopathic doctor Brenda Watson, along with the prominent vascular and gastrointestinal surgeon Dr. Leonard Smith.

"This is the most important book I will write in my career. In June 2006 the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that nearly one-quarter of global disease is caused by environmental exposures... [saying] 'Well-targeted interventions can prevent much of this environmental risk,' saving what could amount to millions of lives every year."

We all know that our environment is full of synthetic and toxic chemicals that we must encounter and try to process every day. Watson begins The Detox Strategy by recommending a lab toxicity screen so that he reader can identify exactly what toxins and how much of them s/he is dealing with. These tests are relatively inexpensive (costs range from $79 to $359) and can be done by mail through analysis of feces, hair, liver function, blood, and/or urine. Hair can actually tell the best story, so is often the preferred sample. She also offers a self quiz for those unable to do the laboratory testing.

This book covers every area regarding detoxification. All the way from the air we breath, the thousands of chemicals we put on our skin, in our bodies, vitamins, minerals and products we use, I loved this book. I am going to start making small changes.....for myself and my daughter.

This is a great book to introduce people to the concept of toxicity in the body. I am tired of the comment "Well, there's chemicals everywhere, whatya gonna do!" Well, what you need to do is to educate yourself to the realities of the toxic soup that we live in. Alarming yes, but denial will not make it go away. Knowledge is power and the sooner you get on board and learn what you need to do to cleanse yourself, particularly your digestive tract, the better off you will be. Who wants to enter that medical nightmare ?
Brenda Watson is a voice that is finally being heard and I am very happy that she has done the PBS specials and offered plenty of educational materials. I can't say that I support all of her product offerings, as a Nutritionist I have my own preferences. Nevertheless, her books are all good, especially for the layman who is willing to learn the truth about the environment we live in. Highly recommend !

I purchased this book, because I have been in a 10 month weight loss mode. While I go to a nutritionist, and do some detoxing, this book is full of simple ways to get the toxins out of your system and do this for your life time. I would recomend this book to anybody who wants to cleane your insidebody and keep it that way.

This book is a great read for those who are new to wanting to eliminate as much toxic material as possible from their homes and bodies. It is also great for the old-timers who have been doing so for a while.

Excellent book with great ideas to get well as health authorities tell us 'death begins in the colon' where all problems have their beginning. Clean the colon and health issues will be eliminated if one's lifestyle will improve. Brenda Watson has excellent information on how to regain one's health and a plan to follow. I am still experimenting and knowing I am on the right road as there is so much confusion out there but I tend to believe Watson.
