"My friend, CherylMeyer has written a book that I recently finished called "It feels good to feel good". It has a lot of common sense solutions (many that you would never think of) to healthy, toxin free living designed around thereduction of inflammation through what you put in and on your body. Most of this is from her personal experience. I know Cheryl to be one of the finest people you'll ever know. Cheryl's also a big proponent of "functional medicine". If you are unfamiliar with this form of medical practice, you need to read her book. It will change the way you think". Frank Jones
I LOVE your book; I hope people will embrace it. Why worry somuch about health care if we keep killing ourselves with poison. We can all start with eliminating the toxins out of our lives. Val Peterson
It Feels Good to Feel Good by Cheryl Meyer is packed with information about toxins in our food and cosmetics. Beyond that, it gives us information on avoiding these toxins and chemicals and where to find affordable alternatives. Also, every chapter includes lists of things you can do to improve in different areas. For example, you can eat only organically grown meat and eggs and vegetables, or you can eat more seeds and less animal products in general. There is mention of the current bee crisis which involves collapsing hives due to an unknown factor. Nobody likes bees, but do you like honey, do you like that plants are pollinated so that we can get food, do you like that trees are pollinated so that we can get oxygen? It would be a very far-reaching problem if the bees were to disappear.
Meyer goes into great detail on the fine points of various food choices that we make every day. For instance do you eat full-fat or low-fat dairy? Farm-raised or wild-caught fish? Shrimp from Asia or Mexico? Knowing the answers will make a huge difference in your health. When you eat according to the rules stated by this author, it is said that you will detox, lose weight, clear your skin, get regular, and many other benefits. Cosmetics are a very high source of toxicity in your body. Think about it. You either apply products to your skin, spray them on, or put them on your lips which you will end up ingesting. When applying products around your eyes, they can get immediately into your bloodstream from the capillaries that are close to the surface. From there it is just a short distance to the brain. Cleaning supplies are another hotbed of chemicals. Check out the resources listed to find out what is in your products and follow the rest of the suggestions in this book. It's very comprehensive and will help your health dramatically. Reviewed by Mary C. Blowers for Readers' Favorite
