I consider myself a healthy, active and generally a clean eating person. But lets face it. No one's perfect. So once a year I do an Ayurvedic cleansing fast. This spring I picked up The Detox Strategy by Brenda Watson and came away with a lot more ideas on how to make positive lifestyle changes that I can continue practicing throughout the year.

In my previous cleanses, I altered my diet for two to three weeks eliminating dairy, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods. The Detox Strategy focuses n...more
I hoped being on PBS would set this book apart from the wack-o informercials, but Watson consistantly lays down two truths and tries to make connections that aren't there. For example, early on she had a diagram of a pastoral setting , cows grazing, a city can be seen over the hill smoke belching and the diagram shows the rain washing all the smoke, cow waste, pesticides, etc into the water....true.

Just making some of the changes she suggests helps a lot. It is a great reference source. Not a book you can just sit through and read cover to cover for hours - there's a lot of information to digest. I'm definitely keeping it for references of items I don't want in my food, cosmetics, cleaners, etc.
I got hooked on Brenda Watson several years ago on PBS. I have to say, her books are very well researched and I find the information she provides to be extremely comprehensive in that she doesn't just tell you what you should be doing, but why and what the impact to your body will be.
A detailed description of our toxic world and how to minimize the harmful effects on our bodies. There could be some who would become overwhelmed by the information and thus cast the whole resource out. There were great tips on how to economically and logically change our health.
This book was interesting and informative. I found many of the tips to be daunting however. It was good to be thinking about all the many chemicals in our lives, even small changes and awareness are a start.

Good information about toxins and bio-accumulation, then how to get rid of the toxins. Paints a picture that her products are the best way, but overall useful information.

Many practical tips -- more like a reference book, rather than a sequential novel
Pretty fascinating. I think my bowels will really benefit from my reading of this book.

Working on upgrading my diet and the kids. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
