The 7 Day Plan to Detoxify Your Body with a Low Acid Diet: List of Alkaline Foods and Benefits of Alkaline Water | [Russell Dawson]

The 7 Day Plan to Detoxify Your Body with a Low Acid Diet: List of Alkaline Foods and Benefits of Alkaline Water

For some people, detoxifying is an alarming word. The root word ‘toxin’ which is often taken as an exact synonym for poison, is most probably be the culprit. Poison typically connotes death, such as when an extremely depressed individual drinks poison to end his or her misery. A toxin is by all means something to be scared of, but not detoxification.

Publisher's Summary

For some people, detoxifying is an alarming word. The root word ‘toxin’ which is often taken as an exact synonym for poison, is most probably be the culprit. Poison typically connotes death, such as when an extremely depressed individual drinks poison to end his or her misery. A toxin is by all means something to be scared of, but not detoxification.

As defined in Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, a toxin is “a poisonous substance that is a specific product of the metabolic activities of a living organism …” (Mish, 2004, p. 1323). The fact that people are living organisms which undergo metabolism suggests that people themselves produce the toxic substances inside their bodies, which eventually cause harm in terms of sickness and other negative health conditions. Meanwhile, detoxification is a major “bodily process designed to deal with health threatening toxic condition posed by our environment, our diets, and even our bodies themselves” (Slaga & Keuneke, 2003, p. 6). In a simpler manner, Lieberman and Gormley (2005) describes detoxification refers to the elimination of harmful substances from the human body. Hence, detoxification should always be viewed as a positive process.

    "very interesting..."
    If you could sum up The 7 Day Plan to Detoxify Your Body with a Low Acid Diet in three words, what would they be?

    Lemons, avocados, and lots of water!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 7 Day Plan to Detoxify Your Body with a Low Acid Diet?

    It was fascinating how she explained that sometimes our kidneys need help to maintain our pH. I was fasinated at how simple it actually is. I just need a physical chart to look at!


    Which character – as performed by Jessica Geffen – was your favorite?

    Actually, Ms Geffen gave an easy to follow list of thing to actually eat, as vs just DOS n Donts. I liked that.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Simple and easy ackiline


    Any additional comments?

    She could have slowed down just a little bit. I found myself starting n restarting a lot to catch what I missed cause she talks fast.

    "Short and Sweet."

    This book is a good primer, basically a chapter one for one seeking initial understanding of acid vs alkaline foods.
