A great read for those that wish to rid themselves of toxins and avoid them in the future. I garnered a lot of tips and tricks and took copious notes for future reference. Good to know the "Dirty Dozen" and the "Clean 15" and how certain foods can help your kidneys to perform better. You only get one body in this life, so you may as well try to take good care of it!

Overall, I think this is a very well written book in regards to research in the toxicity of our environment and how it impacts our health. I think the plan he created is too complicated to follow and very heavy in supplements for the average reader. It was a worthwhile read and I did follow his plan but it took me a lot of time to prepare, organize supplements, and follow the plan and I'm a naturopathic doctor! If you are wanting more information on how toxins are impacting your health I think ...more

Excellent book on toxins

I am a health and wellness expert who runs one of the largest detox groups on Facebook called smart detox. This book has been helpful to me and many people in my Facebook group.

Shelves: junk
A peddler of superstition selling his wares. Nothing special. What is immoral is his use of fear to make his victims buy his junk.

This book is scary.

Not the horror movie kind of scary, but the "we are killing ourselves with our modern lifestyle" kind of scary.

Dr. Pizzorno presents evidence of how our western lifestyle, which relies heavily on chemicals, plastics, pesticides, and heavy metals is slowly but surely making our society sicker and sicker. And although modern medicine can help alleviate the symptoms, it cannot fix our health issues because we keep poisoning ourselves with what we put in and on our bodies.

Really interesting read. The plan was no joke though and something I will not be attempting. Two things bothered me about this book. It came with really detailed meal plans, two or three weeks of breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks with NO recipes. I looked online as well and there was nothing there either. Also this is extremely supplement heavy. Each week comes with a new list of supplements for the specific area you are detoxing. (like three different types of herbs you take days 7-16 and ...more

Lots of great info about how to avoid toxins. It's main purpose is to do a 9 week detox, it has menus and all the info you need. There are also shorter 2 week detox diets that are detailed as well. I am not doing the diets but learned a lot about toxins in every day life and how to avoid them. He also gives a great app to check on the toxin levels in products that you may use. I've used that while shopping to make better choices and use less toxins. Very informative!

You have to take a bit of the information with a grain of salt (but cut out all added salt according to the book). I can make any information match what I want the results to say by creating my own graphs. Like we seen an increase in obesity which corresponds with the increase in avocados. Some good tips and pointers, but not the only authority to trust on detox.

Dr Pizzorno is a terrific speaker and just as good a writer. I also happen to agree with his premise that most cases of chronic disease I see go back to toxicity. This book has lots of very practical advice on how to support the body's detoxification mechanisms, and some patient cases that help to drive his messages home.

ANOTHER book with a detox diet. pizzorno is really really worried about
every chemical possible, a very thorough list, and very scary to think about.
most of the info seemed accurate, although i did look up info on arsenic+cadmium poisoning in portland and that was old news...
too many limited detox diets for my taste.

Pizzorno has a clear sequence for healing the body from toxins. It is admirable that he focuses on using foods but some of these foods can also cause harm to your body. Most of his examples of treating and healing are anecdotal. Where's the research documentation?

Great advice on how to detoxify the body and then lead a toxin-free lifestyle as much as possible. I plan the follow the program he outlined myself. Great, detailed appendices.

Everyone should read this book! It’s very eye opening how much toxins are in our air, water, food and products. It’s a program to detox your toxin load!

Wow... what an amazing book! It definitely changed my perspective towards our environment and lifestyle.

Too technical in some places and basic in others. Heavy on science, but light on practical explanations of protocol steps. If you don't have a working knowledge of this information it might be hard to undertake on your own.
