Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dave and Dr. Wentz have conspired to create an innovative and imaginative approach to living simply. As a physician, I would offer one bit of advice: heed the constructs, sentiments, and words written in this book. We cannot wait for the scientific method to verify the claims made. As individuals we must act now! We should follow our intuition and adhere to The Healthy Home.”
—Peter W. Rugg, M.D., FACEP

The Healthy Home is an amazing revelation of the ‘truths’ on everyday products that parents use for their children. This book will empower parents to take measures to protect their children from toxins that may threaten the health of our future generations.”
—Christine Wood, M.D., pediatrician and author of How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It

“I have met few individuals more generous, more approachable, and more caring than Dr. Wentz. He believes in true health and is seeking to discover its secrets with a passion that is as spiritual as it is scientific. In this brilliant collaboration with his son, Dave, we are able to witness the passage and expansion of simple truths from generation to generation.”
—Denis Waitley, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Psychology of Winning

The Healthy Home is simply brilliant! This will totally alter the way you look at the home you live in. If you want to protect the health of your family, you simply must read this book.”
—Robert G. Allen, New York Times bestselling author

The Healthy Home is full of practical and accessible health advice that will help you get a good night’s sleep, choose the right household cleaners, and figure out what products to avoid.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D.,  New York Times bestselling author

About the Author

After earning a PhD in microbiology with a specialty in immunology from the University of Utah, Dr. Myron Wentz founded Gull Laboratories, where he developed the first commercially available diagnostic test kit for the Epstein-Barr virus. Dr. Wentz then launched USANA Health Sciences in 1992. Dr. Wentz's greatest efforts are now spent on personal research and humanitarian work. In June 2007, he was honored with the Albert Einstein Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Life Sciences from Global Capital Associates.

As the son of a renowned health scientist, Dave Wentz learned early on about the impacts of nutrition, lifestyle choices, and the environment on human health. After graduating with a degree in bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego, he joined his father, Dr. Myron Wentz, to establish USANA Health Sciences, a state-of-the art manufacturer of health products. Dave and Myron live in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Format: Hardcover
This is an easy to read book that provides excellent advice on a key aspect of preventing illness and premature death. I'm qualified to say that, because despite having an immune deficiency I have not been sick since 1971. Dr. Wentz, Dave Wentz, and Donna K. Wallace are right on target, throughout this book.

This book shows you how to reduce the toxicity of your home to tolerable levels, greatly reducing a long list of risk factors for debilitating and costly illnesses. It touches, also on that tripod of diet, rest, and exercise. The advice it offers is excellent for several reasons:

1. It's accurate. Anyone reading my reviews knows I am brutal toward authors who present fiction as fact, and I often state such dereliction of editorial integrity is the norm. I found no factual errors in this book.

2. It's understandable. Rather than try to impress us with jargon, the authors made their points in plain English.

3. It's interesting. The book presents the information in the context of Ms. Wallace's witnessing Dr. Wentz's inspection of Dave Wentz's home. That real-life approach makes you want to keep reading, because the reader can relate to what's going on.

4. It's practical. Anyone can follow the advice in this book. In some cases, the authors say what's ideal but provide you with less than ideal alternatives for improving your home environment. It's directed at ordinary people who have ordinary incomes and ordinary levels of discipline. You do not have to become a monk to reap the benefits.

5. It's timely.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Myron Wentz and his son, Dave Wentz (CEO of Usana Health Sciences, Inc.) have collaborated on a great guide to educate families on the hidden dangers inside the home. Dave's life changed with the birth of his first child in 2009, as all of us change when we become parents. That enlightenment confirmed for him the need to look at changing things...not the world, but where we spend the most time...the home.

This book provides facts and studies on the areas where we spend the most time; the bedroom, the bathroom, the office, the kitchen...our homes. The authors reveal small changes every family can make to reduce exposure to toxins and chemicals, and by doing so, to increase their chances of a longer, healthier lifestyle. The information is presented in an easy-to-read, humorous (where appropriate) fashion.

Format: Hardcover
As an eco-friendly interior designer, I constantly keep an eye out for new books in my field. When I saw The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers, I picked it up (at B+N) and read it on the spot.

This is not the first book on this subject, but it is well researched and I had learned a lot. It is written by three authors--doctor Wentz and his son and Donna Wallace, the "listener". It is the the father who provides the unique perspective because he is a cellular doctor and it is through his understanding that we learn how toxic products actually harm and can destroy cells.

The book explains the hidden dangers in the home. The authors believe that indoor air pollution will one day be considered the asbestos of yesteryear.

Beginning in the bedroom, they discuss the common hidden toxins that can harm our health--from pesticides in mattresses, to chemicals in our pajamas to electricity. They also offer simple ans safe solutions.

I love the fact that they tell us to use our noses to help determine what is unhealthy--that a healthy and clean home is one that basically has no smell. They illustrate the dangers of perfume in an experiment with crickets dying from the chemicals that are perfume. And, they compare the dangers to perfume to that of second hand smoke! (As someone who is chemically sensitive, I say, amen! I am just waiting for the fine day that perfume is banned from all public spaces!)

I recommend HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT as a companion to this book, as I use it as a reference for my work. I also like books by Michael Pollan on how and what to eat.

This book is clear and easy to read and understand. Recommend.

This book is full of great info! I have read a few different books on similar subjects and this is by far my favorite. Not only is the info good, but there are simple solutions to implement. Easy to read yet not watered down. I am recommending this to everyone!

Dr. Myron Wentz and Dave Wentz have produced a valuable resource that should be in every home in America. This book is one of those that you will devour and then go back and use as a reference over and over. It is the best, no-nonsense approach to cleaning up YOUR environment (your home) that I have read. It is filled with practical steps that you can take now to protect yourselves and your loved ones from the hidden dangers in your home.

Give a copy to everyone you care about!

Blessings,
