Our bodies are assaulted by pollutants of every kind every day, whether they are waste products from traffic exhaust or created by a build-up of toxins due to stress, poor diet and lack of exercise. So although we are equipped to deal with these impurities, we sometimes need to give our bodies a little extra help. The Total Detox Plan is a handy, accessible guide that supplies all the necessary information and tips on how to go about cleansing your system safely.
This unique book - one in a series of natural health guides from doctor and internationally bestselling author Sarah Brewer - provides a highly authoritative yet easy-to follow program of complementary medicine and self-care treatments, specially designed to support the conventional treatment for arthritis. If you're suffering from this debilitating condition, and are looking for an expert to guide you through all the positive steps you can take to alleviate your symptoms and improve your day-to-day well-being, this is the book for you. Part One provides a detailed introduction to help you understand your condition, to recognise its key causes, symptoms and early-warning signs and offer insight into the methods of diagnosis and types of treatment that are available. Part Two covers the many complementary and nutritional approaches to treatment, from osteopathy, yoga, hydrotherapy, copper therapy and meditation to eating more antioxidants, eliminating trigger foods and taking regular gentle exercise (which many people with arthritis avoid because they fear it will make their joints worse - in fact, it's quite the opposite). Finally, in Part Three of this groundbreaking book, Dr Sarah Brewer offers a pioneering approach of tailor-made programs, based on the premise that we're all unique, and have different requirements depending on our age, gender, lifestyle and genetic background. Choose from The Gentle Program, The Moderate Program and The Full-strength Program - each guides you through daily nutritional plans, as well as exercise routines, therapeutic techniques and lifestyle changes, all of which empower you to take control and make real changes to your health and your life.
