Review: Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life

Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for life: Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing Diets  Revised and Updated
by Cherie Calbom MS, CN with John Calbom, MA
Hachette Book Group, Inc.

Some books give readers hope; some books go further and save lives or purport to do so. Every page of this book breathes passion. The introduction is a memoir of healing and the crisis that created the need for healing. That healing turned into a mission in which the Calboms attempt to bring healing to the lives of others.

The chapters are Introduction, The Secrets of Vibrant Health, Juicing for Life, Juice Fasting for Life, Detoxing for Life, Intestinal Cleansing for Vibrant Health, Liver, Gallbladder, and Kidney Cleansing, More Detox Programs, Mental and Emotional Cleansing, The A-Z Guide to the Nutrient Content of Foods, Recipes for Fasting and Detoxing, Resources Guide, References, Acknowledgments, Index.

Interestingly, considering its title, this book contains more information than juicing information, although juicing is its primary focus. The title and the table of contents do not convey the wealth of information about general detoxing. This book has chapters dealing with such issues as parasites, GMO-foods, massages, toxic emotions, vitamins, and heavy metals. But it is primarily a book on the power of juices, especially raw juices. It’s as if everything that has ever been written on healthful living has been collected into one handy, non-judgmental, and passionately hopeful book.

The writing is clear and conversational. There are charts galore and scattered notes on all aspects of wholesome eating and foods.

Heartily recommend this book. If one wants one book on healthful eating, this is the one book to buy.
