Choice Books: Health


If I took all of the advice in all of the books on health that I've read I'm pretty sure I'd be much healthier than I am. That doesn't stop me however, from reading as much as I can on the subject - and frequently.

David Agus MD was Steve Jobs' personal doctor - and as such he has both traditional views - and some that challenge modern 'Western' medicine. For example, he disagrees with 'detoxing' - and isn't a fan of juicing. And - music to my ears - advises against wearing high heels! *jazz hands*

This is a great, interesting, easy-to-read book and makes you think twice about a few things.

Available from all good book sellers and Amazon.

  3. Sounds interesting. I have a good book called, Feed Your Skin, Starve Your Wrinkles..great for info on nutrition/which foods are good for helping certain things i.e plumping, hydration etc. Firm believer of looking after yourself inside and out!

  4. It's nice to hear of someone not advocating the extreme detox and juicing trends! Might give this a read :-)

  5. Right? Our bodies know how to get rid of the "toxins" and waste we don't need...why do you think we have toilets?

  7. Interesting viewpoint and all opinions are valid :)

    However, I do believe juicing to be beneficial (not month cleanses and extreme fads etc.) but adding 2-3 juices per week on top of your usual diet can be great for your skin and vitamin levels.

    Agree with the detox thing - our bodies can do it themselves!

  8. Wow, I totally agree and actually live by that. I have very very sensitive digestion, so simply have to eat healthy all the time and am not allowed to eat raw vegetables (I know it sounds absurd, but they give me cramps, and I've had this advice from different people over a period of 20 years).
    And I only wear heels in the evening, when I know I'll have to walk for very short distances. You should hear what my pilates teacher has to say about heels... And she too does still love them in her heart ;)
    I'll definitely look into this book!

  9. Are there any kits or individual travel sizes available that you would recommend for someone with normal skin THAT DOESN'T WASH THEIR FACE?! I mean not even a wipe. I recently discovered that my best friend doesn't wash her face at all, so I'm accumulating products for her to try. She's pretty resistant (and lazy), so I don't want to spend a ton in case she doesn't use it. And she travels a lot. Help please.
