Detox-Style is not your average detoxification book. This book is first written by a trained and licensed naturopathic physician that educates her readers on understanding detoxification from a holistic perspective that includes the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual components of health. Detox-style also identifies various categories of common toxic exposures found in daily encounters with, air, food/beverages, personal care products, household products, chemical substances, and relationships. As readers come to learn more about how toxins can accumulate into disease over time, they are also provided with an in-depth understanding of how the body eliminates toxins through its built-in detoxification pathways. Readers walk away with a greater knowledge on how to naturally support these pathways on a regular basis so that the body can readily eliminate toxins just as often as it is being exposed to them. This type of daily on-going support of the detoxification pathways, hence a “Detox-style” creates a cellular environment conducive towards wellness and not disease. In addition to this wealth of information on why detoxification is important, the author also carefully outlines how to holistically detoxify the body with step-by-step successful strategies for intensified intervals as well as daily lifestyle or should I say “Detox-style” practices. This is a must read for all people interested in improving their health conditions as well as those who desire to continue to live on the side of disease prevention.
