Celebrity Suzanne Somers is more than just a pretty face with an acting resume. She’s using her fame to serve as a health and wellness advocate and with this platform, she’s spreading the word about some health issues that aren’t well known among the public. Her new book, Tox-Sick From Toxic to Not Sick, introduces us to her own quest to stay well (Somers is a cancer survivor) and her search for answers as to why her loved ones have suffered various ailments.
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s important to eat organic food, why so many people are suffering from allergies, or why so many children are being treated for conditions that were unheard of 20 years ago, Somers has potential answers that make a great deal of sense. While critics may dismiss her efforts as just another celebrity jumping on a fitness bandwagon, Tox-Sick is full of terminology that shows that serious research has been done. The only drawback to the book is that in her recommendations for becoming “not sick”, she may recommend a clinic that the reader may not have access to, or a treatment regimen that might seem strange, or a special product purchased at Somers’ own website. In other words, the book comes across as promoting Somers’ products at times (although her intentions do seem good).
If you’re concerned about your health or your family’s health, or if you’d like to avoid encountering a future medical condition, I recommend that you read Tox-Sick. The information here could potentially save you time, frustration, money, and discomfort by explaining what causes – and can reverse – poor health.
