In The Detox Solution, Fitzgerald fully explains detoxificationan
approach to clearing the body of toxins and supporting health that
so far has been widely misunderstood. One major misconception is
that detoxification can be a "quick fix." New patients
often tell Fitzgerald that they have tried to detoxify, but used
a 3-day water fast, the 1-week rice regimen, etc. "While someone
might feel a bit better after a short-term detox, theyre not
going to be able to clear out toxins built up in the body over a
lifetime," Fitzgerald notes. "Due to all the toxins we
can encounter today, its important to support our bodys
ongoing detoxification processes on a daily basis."
To clear up the confusion, Fitzgerald was determined to make The
Detox Solution a complete, but easy-to-read and practical guide.
She succeeds, dividing her coverage into three sections. In Part
I, readers become aware of the range of toxins, and then are given
ideas to replace or avoid them. In Part II, they learn how the body
naturally detoxifies, and the ways these processes are compromised
by toxicity. Part III moves on to methods of supporting our detox
processes and of building a high state of well-being. Unique in
this last portion are rich chapters on emotional and spiritual detox,
and here the author also intelligently addresses nutrition, cleansing
regimens, working with health practitioners, and more.
