Book Review: Tox-Sick by Suzanne Somersault
68.8 % of adults are considered overweight or obese
ADHD diagnosis has increased an average of 5 % per year from 2003 to 2011
Food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011
95 % of cancers are caused by diet and environment
These are some big statistics quoted in Tox-Sick. by Suzanne Somers. Suzanne Somers has personally felt some of these statistics as she and her family members have dealt with ADHD, cancer, Lyme Disease, mold toxicity and more. These challenges in her own family led her to work with doctors to find best how to help overcome these illnesses. Tox-Sick shares her and her familly's journey to feeling good once again and also interviews with 6 prominent physicians to best learn the effects of toxins on our brain, our gut, our hormones, our heart and how to make our environment cleaner. Somers also shares information from the doctors on how to help yourself heal and feel better from the effects of our environment.
This book is packed full of good information on how to help yourself heal and to feel good, to get rid of brain fog and belly bloat. If you truly want to help yourself and your family members, this is a good reference book to start with. She also lists other books you may want to read by the doctors that she interviews. It is not a quick read if you are really interested in learning what to do, but it is interesting and very helpful. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone with these struggles or anyone with family members facing health challenges to read it. She does have a website with supplements and healthy products that she sells that she mentions but she doesn't push it that much. She also lists other websites that sell quality supplements. I felt it was well balanced and also encouraging in that she offers so many helpful things to do to help yourself feel better.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
