Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, 6/1/14
“Worthwhile.”

Inside Toronto, 5/24/14
“In her book, British Columbia resident Michelle Schoffro Cook outlines six three-day programs designed to help readers look and feel better. Cook’s plans combine detox recipes and nutritional advice with other healing therapies including mediation, acupressure and yoga.”

Closer Weekly, 12/22/14
“[One of] the nation's top health and nutrition experts."

Library Journal
06/01/2014
Cook, who has written a number of other health and wellness titles, here presents six detoxification programs, each aimed at a particular organ (e.g., kidneys, liver, colon), to rid the body of toxins from unhealthy food and drink. As with so many other contemporary plans, this one emphasizes fresh, unprocessed foods, and also whole grains and excludes anything that has been genetically modified. Each plan contains particular foods, supplements, exercises, and acupressure techniques to facilitate the cleansing process. With the exception of the colon cleanse, none of them seem likely to be uncomfortable, or to keep the user at home for the duration. Overall, the advice is sound, though some of the author's documentation is shaky. In addition to sources such as the National Library of Medicine, she cites articles in popular women's magazines, which may or may not be reliable. The programs are fairly complicated and will not appeal to the average reader of weight-loss titles. VERDICT Worthwhile, but only for a relatively small group of readers. This will appeal to the really dedicated self-help crowd.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH

Just love these kind of books because they are written from the heart, and have been tried and tested. This one is no exception I dont normally detox my body but after reading these, yes, this book is filled with lots of info about the toxins and the body. I learnt so much from this book, all that I can  and how it affects health conditions. As i suffer allergies its made me more aware of what I am eating and drinking. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

WEEKEND WONDER DETOX was the perfect book to reinforce my research of foods, additives, environmental toxins, and a wealth of information for anyone wanting to take control of their health and well-being. (I wish WEEKEND WONDER DETOX had been around when I began my research and journey years ago), as everything you NEED, is included in this incredible and resourceful book. A book you will want to keep on hand for reference for years to come, and give as gifts to your family and friends. A few years ago, I was experiencing allergy reactions to foods and toxins, anaphylaxis‎ attacks, ear and sinus infections, heart palpitations, very fast heart rate- keeping me from much needed sleep and always in high adrenaline mode, with increase in blood pressure, IBS, among other illnesses. No matter how much I exercised, (thought I was eating healthy), the symptoms continued – with an EpiPen in hand at all times. After visiting numerous doctors, an array of tests with specialists, EKGs, stress tests, etc. (all doctors want to do is put you on medicine). I refuse as have allergic reactions, and think they are unnecessary. I began tons of online research—obsessed with everything about foods and toxins, keeping a daily journal of all my food intake, exercises, reading all labels; recording symptoms, blood pressure and pulse rate for a year. After discovering many of the salad dressings, additives (which mirrors heart problems), foods, dairy products, meats, and other toxins in my house like air fresheners, and plugs ins, were causing my problems (have the tests to prove how it affects the heart, after eating certain foods) – I changed my entire life style. For the last two years, I have felt like a new person--no more heart issues, or allergy attacks – taking control over my health. I have been a strict vegan with NO meats or dairy, no processed foods, or foods with additives, no alcohol, and no caffeine. ALL ORGANIC. Fresh vegetables, sprouts, fruits, legumes, beans, and whole grains. I totally focus on veggies and water – which is a big part of the book. After reading this book, there was still much more to learn, which was extremely helpful. I am so excited about this book and want to tell everyone about it. The author did an outstanding job of explaining and detailing, with extensive background --critical for every woman, man, and child. As anything else, you have to WANT AND NEED something bad enough, develop passion, and educate yourself if you want a healthy body and lifestyle for yourself, and your family. WEEKEND WONDER DETOX is definitely your education and guide and will set you on the correct path. WEEKEND WONDER is a comprehensive guide, to help you with cleansing, detox, assessments, journals, as well as educating you about essentials, foods and toxins, superfoods, specific organ targets, menus, recipes, exercises, spa treatments, stress remedies, and even body care (ladies, you will love this section), and household products (learn to make your own safe products), with strategies to establish healthful habits in your everyday life. Michelle Schoffro Cook, International Best-selling and 16-Time Book Author and Holistic Nutritionist, offers a fresh approach --the best I have read, helping you reset your natural body chemistry with a variety of different plans, to improve your overall health. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! A special thank you to Perseus Books Group, Da Capo Press, and NetGalley for an ARC in e
