Publisher's Summary

Let your body do the work

Do you have to tell your leg to heal from a scrape? Your lungs to take in air? Your body that it's hungry? No. Your body does these things automatically, effortlessly. Vibrant health is your birthright and within your grasp; you just have to step out of the way. In Effortless Healing, online health pioneer, natural medicine advocate, and best-selling author Dr. Joseph Mercola reveals the nine simple secrets to a healthier, thinner you. The results are amazing, and the steps can be as easy to implement as:

  • Throwing ice cubes in your water to make it more structured
  • Skipping breakfast, as it could be making you fat
  • Eating up to 75 percent of your calories each day in fat for optimal health, reduction of heart disease, and cancer prevention
  • Avoiding certain meat and fish but enjoying butter
  • Eating sauerkraut (and other fermented foods) to improve your immune system and your mood
  • Walking barefoot outside to decrease system-wide inflammation (and because it just feels great)
  • Enjoying a laugh: it's as good for your blood vessels as 15 minutes of exercise

Effortless Healing is the distillation of decades of Dr. Mercola's experience and cutting-edge medical knowledge. With his wisdom and that of your body, you can optimize your health, your weight, and your life...effortlessly.

    "Buyer Beware"

    In my opinion, this book is so filled with pseudoscience and quackery that I felt it necessary to post a warning review here. One does not need to have a degree in chemistry or medicine to spot many glaring errors in thinking, science and reality. A simple high school chemistry class is enough to cast doubt on some of the ideas presented. For example, concepts of "structure-altered water" or "vortex water" are better suited to a sci-fi/fantasy book than a book presenting itself as a medical/health advice text.

    Further, I am shocked by Perlmutter's forward to this book. I am rethinking my positive review of his book Brain Maker posted here on audible. Is there no limit to the willingness some medical authors have in stretching science to suit their particular theory of the moment?

    Much of Mercola's advice will not harm listeners--but to me, it is not grounded in solid science and serious medicine. Snake oil anyone?

    "Boring and a disappointment"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you are not familiar with the Dr. Mercola daily newsletter and associated web site, you may find this audio book mildly interesting.


    Would you recommend Effortless Healing to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I would recommend the Dr. Mercola free newsletter instead.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dan Woren?

    Probably not


    Could you see Effortless Healing being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Definitely not


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Dr. Mercola fan but did not learn anything new from this very boring book.

    "Love this book!"

    I enjoyed listening to this, and the information is spectacular! Dr. Mercola gives great advice and it truly is as close to "effortless" as it gets.

    "Structured Water. Oh, please."

    Just got to the tip that says one of the best things you can do for your health is to drink structured water. Returning this nonsense now.

    "One of the best books on the subject!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Effortless Healing?

    This book is laid out in a very organized manner. I was not reading it for weight loss - but the portion on healing makes total sense.

    I love self-help books that deal with mind and body in a more holistic way. Also theology, history, literature~ among others.

    "an excellent read that I highly recommend!"

    I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot about health and nutrition. I only wish that I can find raw milk where I live but it's not easy. Dr. Mercola has given me a lot to think about. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    "Practical steps for the Healthy to stay healthy"

    This is an ideal book for regular healthy individuals to help them on adopting practical and easy steps to maintain their youthfullness and general health with reasonable scientific basis. Though, it was not as comprehensive as I expected, I have no hesitations to still recommend it for al with no exception even those familiar with the subject
