Americans seem to be suffering an epidemic of chronic fatigue. Some of this can be attributed simply to lack of sleep, particularly in the Eastern time zone, where 11 p.m. is the end of prime-time television. Also highly suspect are the many additives in much of the food we eat and toxins in the air we breathe. Lipman—founder and director of New York's Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, whose patients include Kyra Sedgwick and David Letterman—here presents a six-week program to detoxify, change eating habits, work daily exercise into one's schedule, and support those who are trying to clean up our environments. Similar in scope to Woodson Merrell's The Source (forthcoming in October 2008), Lipman's book includes notes on the studies he cites, which improves his credibility. Rather than a separate cleansing regimen, Lipman incorporates his detoxification into the complete program, recommending a gradual removal of various foods as well as the addition of yoga stretches and movements. Buy either of these two excellent titles.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH

I appreciate the explanations of how the different foods and additives may be affecting me, so I could ease into the program, which was crucial to me being able to fit it into my ridiculously overstuffed schedule. Lipman is right - just making the switch to smoothies with the suggested ingredients in the morning made a huge impact on my energy level and boosted my mood as well. The whole health tips (relaxation and massage) were also easy to inegrate and extremely helpful. This is the first Christmas since my horrible, mentally an emotionally abusive marriage over 10 years ago (and my divorce 5 years later)that I am ENJOYING because I feel so much better!
If your doctor says they can't find anything wrong with you, but you're simply tired all the time, this book might be for you as well.
However, to do ALL of this program would be VERY extreme. It would cost thousands of dollars in equipment, food, supplements, etc... It is very low pressure and he even says if it does not sound like you, then don't do it. I would recommend getting the book and gleaning what works for you and ignoring the rest. Almost anyone can get something very useful out of this book, even if you don't do all of it or you implement it slowly.
Good luck in feeling better! I have been there where you are. I hope this book helps you like it helped me.
