I also recently added a new guide to my list of important books. Simple Natural Cures: Cheap & Effective Remedies for Everyday Common Ailments is one of the most valuable books on my Kindle. Many of the natural cures featured in the book are in line with the Detox Prescription. They also treat a wide array of ailments including fevers, coughs, colds, headaches, stress, and even eczema. Some of the cures rely on foods or herbs and others rely on "mind-body medication" and moisturizers. I know that during and after the cleanses on the Detox Prescription, I have used many of these cures with only positive effects to speak of. The best part, of course, is that all the cures are 100% natural. You don't have to worry about messing up your cleanse by adding potentially toxic pharmaceutical drugs.
If you're looking for a way to revitalize your life, boost your energy, and jump start your weight loss, then the Detox Prescription may be just what the doctor ordered. It is one of the most comprehensive and scientifically sound cleanses I have ever come across. I feel healthier, happier, and more active and I have both the Detox Prescription and Simple Natural Cures to thank for that. I can only hope that more people follow my example if they want to feel good.
1. The book needs better organization. It is currently written as if it were a novel. However on this detox you a always looking back at other previous list, recipes, tips, etc. In it's current form it is very hard to find things you have previously read as they are woven into the text. (Nut milk recipes, list of suggested snacks, the rainbow of foods list, meal plans, etc...) If the book had perhaps, some color coding or different organization (recipe section) it would be easier to look back and find these items. Currently I have added tabs, because I got so annoyed skimming pages to find stuff. Perhaps people that buy the book can sign up their email, and get a electronic list of recipes sent to them. Something. Especially if customers ever plan to use some of these recipes later.
2. The menu caters more to people that eat sweets. If I was a person that thought a bowl of cereal was my favorite breakfast, then these recipes would work perfectly for me. I am a egg and hot sauce in the morning, prefer-savory-foods-type of person. I have had to find other vegan recipes to substitute. Even the soups are pretty sweet. The book offer tips/ideas for people that miss their sweets, but doesn't offer ideas for people that prefer salty-savory foods. Especially having come from the 3 day juice detox part. There was only one smoothie the whole 3 days that was more savory. On day 4, I could not imagine having a sweet breakfast of banana, almond butter and a corn tortilla. I made substitutions based of the suggested lists of veggies that matched my palette better.
