Toxic Relief

by Dr. Don Colbert

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


"Toxic Relief by Dr. Don Colbert has some marvelous lessons, life plans, and health tips. However, up front I must be honest about two eyebrow-raising factors. First, although Dr. Colbert is a licensed medical doctor, he is a graduate of the Oral Roberts School of Medicine and, as such, has strong leanings toward modern day "faith healing" practices. Some conservative Christians might have a problem with this. Second, much of this book serves as an advertorial, in that it promotes vitamins and health supplements that Dr. Colbert sells to his readers as side business. Some readers may feel this taints his impartiality.

"Having said that, I still strongly recommend this book to those who need encouragement and a sense of hope in regard to battling poor health. Dr. Colbert believes that the toxins in our atmosphere, the poor nutrition in our standard American diets, and our sedentary lifestyles are making us old before our time and sick when we could be healthy. His book treats the whole person—body, mind, and soul—for complete healing.

"Dr. Colbert presents a plan for detoxification through fasting (especially juice fasting). He explains how our bodies assist in this battle when aided by a nutritional program that develops a healthy liver, the body's waste remover. He also stresses the need for "spiritual fasting" as a process by which to gain control over improper physical desires and impure cravings. He promises, "By undergoing the program of detoxification outlined…you can cleanse your body from a lifetime of toxins and discover the health and vitality that come with toxic relief."

"The explanations and descriptions in this book of bodily functions are given in layperson's language, not complicated medical jargon. At the back of the book there is a journal that readers can use to chart each step of the detox process, both spiritually and physically. This book is not a quick read, but it is of great value to anyone concerned about personal health and how to counteract the effects of pollutants and toxic chemicals in our lives." -- Mrs. Linda Demorest, Christian Book
