Let your body do the work...
 
Do you have to tell your leg to heal from a scrape? Your lungs to take in air? Your body that it’s hungry? No. Your body does these things automatically, effortlessly. Vibrant health is your birthright and within your grasp; you just have to step out of the way. In Effortless Healing, online health pioneer, natural medicine advocate, and bestselling author Dr. Joseph Mercola reveals the nine simple secrets to a healthier, thinner you. The results are amazing and the steps can be as easy to implement as:
 
• Throwing ice cubes in your water to make it more “structured”
• Skipping breakfast, as it could be making you fat
• Eating up to 75 percent of your calories each day in fat for optimal health, reduction of heart disease, and cancer prevention
• Avoiding certain meat and fish, but enjoying butter
• Eating sauerkraut (and other fermented foods) to improve your immune system and your mood
• Walking barefoot outside to decrease system-wide inflammation (and because it just feels great)
• Enjoying a laugh: it’s as good for your blood vessels as fifteen minutes of exercise
 
Effortless Healing is the distillation of decades of Dr. Mercola’s experience and cutting-edge medical knowledge. With his wisdom and that of your body, you can optimize your health, your weight, and your life…effortlessly.

After reading a slew of health-related books, I was not as interested in this initially as I should have been. But once I started reading it... Wow. It is very opinionated, so I have taken nuggets of what I think are beneficial and things I have not heard of before and have started implementing them. First, is the intermittent fasting. It isn't just not eating, it is a test of discipline and also it help activate the fat stores in your body to lose weight and cleanse your system. I am also going to try the Active Isolated Stretching and I am going to work on the grounding and water methods he spoke of. Many of the food related things conflict with most of the other books I have read. When I face these sorts of outlier-ish issues, I find it is best to take the middle ground. The truth about beans for example is somewhere in the middle. They are high in fat, but they are also high in protein. When eaten in moderation, they are beneficial, but they shouldn't replace a rounded diet of vegetables like broccoli, kale, and sprouts (and other green veggies).

It is a good book to get started with and also a great book to challenge what you already know about health and wellness.

I'm afraid the author is a modern snake-oil salesman.
