This book is different from what I expected when ordering it from the library, in that it does not just deal with general detoxification. There are chapters on sugar, drug, caffeine, alcohol and nicotine detoxification, and a final chapter on fasting.

Included are lists of the nutrients required for the various detox programmes.

If I didn't find much new information, this is because I'd read a lot about the subject beforehand,

This is a sensible and adequate book comprising all the basic and necess

Definitely more helpful than the other book I read! This book is easy to read and good for a beginner like me. The author covers a broad spectrum of information ranging from 'which juices are best for treating which problems', to 'possible side effects of juice fasts', to lifestyle changes and more.

One complaint is that the entire thing seemed a little bit disorganized. I had a hard time understanding whether there were better times to do the detox diet as opposed to the juice fasts, and the dif

I have used a lot of info. from this in my current two week detox cleanse, which will lead to a two day fast and then a colonic irrigation.

There is a lot of helpful info. and I am not necessarily following all its guidelines, but through its info. i have been able to construct my own cleanse and upcoming fast.

YAY for colonic health!

I found this book to have a lot good information on nutrition and healing the body from the in side out bottom to the top. It answered a lot of the questions I was having about cleanses. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to start incorporating seasonal cleanses into their lives.

I picked this up after my doctor recommended that I try removing dairy and eggs. I found it to be full of tailored recommendations for removing various addictive items out of your regimine (caffine, nicotine, suugar, etc) a bit thick of a read tho.

I'm too rebellious to ever be this hard core about food. But it did have some really good points, and I do find myself thinking about what I eat a little differently so- I'd call it a success. I will eventually try one of the detox plans, and I saw some recipes I will definitely use.

This book has some good information, and I fully support the idea of regular detoxification; however, this book is not particularly well written or presented in the best manner. For much more interesting and infoemative read, check out Clean by Alejandro Junger.

I've been utilizing this book for years -- a great method of gentle detoxofication from caffeine, sugar, nictotine and other substances.
Dr. Haas is thorough, respected in his field, and a fabulous resource for alternative healing.

I like Haas. He adds a bit of personality to otherwise dull textbooks. This book goes into a nice depth about the detoxification process and how to design a detox for yourself or another person, safely and effectively.

Well worth reading. I picked it up because it had a section on Nicotine Detoxification, when a friend of mine wanted to stop smoking. I'm using it for me now, that I'm quitting smoking. It's been very helpful.

Good read in general.

Personally, I'm on the fence about fasting. I just haven't seen enough doctors in the medical community on whole to backup the touted benefits of detoxification through liquid fasting.

Quick read while I was standing in the library browsing. I'm not sure if it works or not but it certainly was interesting. Might be kind of hard to only drink juice for several days.

I started following some of the simple detox plans and I can already feel a difference in my energy level, mood, and body. And I'm not even through the 2nd chapter yet!

I wanted to get some of the crap out of my body. I had problems with my bowels and this helped me for the trial period of 2 weeks. I will have to do it again!

Sparse on the details of a detox's effect on the body. I'm not particularly sold by anything in here. How is this in a 3rd edition reprint already?

Did the the diet for a day and felt ill. I'm one for more food. Although, there are some amazing smoothie recipes.

Recommended to Becca by: Lauren let me borrow it.
Good general advice. The only reason I didn't give it 4 or more stars is because I am not that hardcore.

Lots of good info that I can use but I don't think I have it in me to do a 10 day juice fast.
