A self-help book on detoxification and dietary healing, applicable to all age groups - young and old alike - who wish to either maintain the health they have or reverse chronic illness. The book not only tells you how and why the diet works but also gives the practical know how of how to apply the program for your individual case, gives tips on menu planning and shopping, and comes with over 80 delicious recipes. Most importantly, it is “family friendly” so your whole family can enjoy the benefits of the diet.
Kathryn, an internationally acknowledged expert in the field of detoxification and dietary healing, draws from her 20 years experience in both treating patients and teaching health professionals, in bringing this current work to the public as an easy and informative text. As a Gerson Therapist she has witnessed at first hand the fundamental role of specific dietary protocols in the healing of chronic disease and during her time as a director of the Gerson Institute she developed the training curriculum for the Gerson TherapyTM and produced Nutritional Healing: a Patient Management Handbook, described by Charlotte Gerson as “the ‘bible’ of the nutritional healer of the future.”
When the body heals, it heals everything
Genuine healing programs always involve detoxification. The symptoms of disease invariably arise as an adaptation
to toxic conditions within the body and all too often we end up treating the symptoms of pollution rather than resolving the pollution itself. By restoring the environment and enabling the cells to replenish with nutrients and oxygen we
provide the conditions for healing to occur.
This current edition covers a range of health issues, including fertility and hormonal imbalances, arthritis,
osteoporosis, autoimmune disorders, allergies, chronic fatigue, insulin resistance and diabetes, heart disease,
cancer, depression and ADHD, explains their underlying causes and shows you how you can tailor your own
detoxification program to remove the toxic burden, restore vitality and allow the healing to begin.
- All you need to know to embark on a detox program
- Practical ways to self-manage your healing
- Understand your condition like a professional
- Scientific and evidence-based
- Nutritionally balanced recipes and menu plans
“What I most like about Kathryn’s writing is that it focuses upon communicating the truly thrilling concepts of healing through naturopathic nutrition. These can fire people with an excitement about making oneself and other people well again and can enthuse people with the sheer discovery that one’s body is not just a mechanical material entity, but, rather, is much more. All today’s students of Nutritional Medicine should enjoy that aspect.” Lawrence Plaskett B.A., Ph.D., C. Chem., F.R.S.C.
Readers’ say about Get a Life: the Detoxification Diet Made Easy!, popular forerunner to this current edition:
“The information in your book is about the best that I have seen to date and clears up many things. I will be able to use this in my practice.” BB NSW
“I have enjoyed your book. I particularly value all the scientific explanation of why and how the diet works. This is very unusual in my experience – people tend to just tell you what to do, which does not credit you with any intelligence.
The realistic way you even point out the need to have suitable food in the fridge and the three options is also
very good.” PP SA
