In a nutshell: This is a very well-thought-out book. We've been eating processed foods for so long, it is nice to know there is something we can do to help reverse some of the damage they are doing! There is a very strong message throughout the book, encouraging the reader to eat better by including more vegetables and fiber, and reducing red meat, sugar and highly processed foods. The authors have addressed all the main toxic areas in the body, providing helpful information on detoxing and fasting in order to heal and cleanse the body to become healthier. Each chapter includes facts pertinent to the subject, as well as supportive instructions. For cleanses, they include a sample menu with references to recipes within the book. Overall, it is easy to find information using the Index or chapter headings if you don't want to read the whole book.
I was amazed to find a lot of information on Candida, a yeast-like health issue that one of my close relatives has suffered with for years. I immediately called my relative and read some of the book over the phone. She was so excited to hear what the book said, and can't wait to follow the cleansing suggestions to relieve the symptoms she has had for years! I can see how this book can be life-altering in a great and natural way!
Content: The content supports the book very nicely. It starts by talking about health, then explains the how's and why's of juicing, fasting and detoxing. The book then goes into the specifics of cleansing your colon, liver, gallbladder and kidney. It then progresses into more detox programs and cleansing yourself mentally and emotionally.Read more ›
This book includes quite a few detox programmes like the Colon Cleansing, Liver, Gallbladder and Kidney cleansing and even a Mental and emotional cleansing. As far as the juice and soup recipes go I will try a few but I have to say that my husband and I find it very difficult to take the green juices. And some of the soups include milk, something I dislike profoundly. No matter how much healthier green juices may be we will stick to the recipes of The Juice fasting Bible which include some fruit and taste a lot nicer. What is the point of doing something extremely healthy which you hate and will eventually give up? Celery juice we find rather hard to drink, no matter how many other ingredients you mix with it, the taste and smell always seems to be very present.
If you are looking for a detoxing book I can really recommend this one, if juice fasting is your priority....Read more ›
I bought the Kindle version of this book and found it difficult to swiftly cross-reference the info I needed. That's part kindle issue and part organizational issue with the book. The kindle issue - or ebook in general - is that you need to be able to bookmark a few separate pages and flip back and forth between them to get the most out of the book quickly; it's impossible to do that with an ebook.
For example, There's a chapter on Detoxing the Colon; the chapter gives a pretty good overview of why, how, etc., and then in the daily schedule, it gives you a variety of recipes to choose from in Chapter 10. In order to figure out which recipe you want to insert in a given time period you go to Chapter 10 and select a recipe.
If you want to know what nutrients are in the foods you're juicing or eating, you have to go the nutrients list and search each vitamin and nutrient because there's no mention in the recipes of which ingredients have which nutrients.
Chapter 9 is the A-Z Guide on Vitamins and Nutrients and while it's a good reference for the way the author advises you use it, it's disconnected from the rest of the book as described here in my review.
While you're in Chapter 10 choosing a recipe, you'll see other recipes that look good but there's no way to tell what they're good for unless you read all of the other chapters on Fasting, Juicing, Detoxing the Liver, Gall Bladder, etc.Read more ›
