Okay, folks, how are ya? Are you tired of the cold yet? I am. Well, I’m tired of being cold, but not tired of holing up with a good book under tons of blankets. All of this reading I’ve been doing has its benefits for you too, because I came across a book that I want to share with you. It is not a new book, but the information in it is extremely current and helpful, especially if you are dealing with the toxic burden of a mold exposure, like me. The book I’m speaking of is Tox-Sick: From Toxic to Not Sick by Suzanne Somers.
Please don’t stop reading this post. I realize that there are many people who only associate Suzanne Somers with infomercials and the Thigh Master, but her knowledge and depth of research on holistic health practices may surprise you. She began chronicling her health battles beginning in 2001, when she revealed that she had breast cancer and decided to chart to her own path with holistic treatments and recovery protocols. From that rather extreme health scare of her own, and adherence to natural medicine to cure her cancer, she has grown into an extremely knowledgeable, informed, and well-respected natural health guru. I am admittedly a big fan of Suzanne Somers. Her philosophy of achieving optimal health and vitality by unloading the chemical burden on your body both inside and out, is one that I try to live by and to impart to others as well. She has devoted her time, money and life to learning as much as possible about how to get ideal energy, vitality and health out of her body.
In Tox-Sick, Suzanne explores her point of view of toxicity from every angle—environmental (mold, radiation, electromagnetic fields, pesticides, pollution), genetic (DNA predisposition for disease, reaction and absorption of toxins), nutritional (genetically modified foods, food allergies, hormones in foods, chemicals in foods), pharmaceutical (the body’s reaction to medicines, the repercussion of drugs to remove disease symptoms, rather than eliminating or curing the disease, and the long-term side effects of pharmaceuticals), and much, much more.
