Effortless Healing by Dr. Joseph Mercola

I have been familiar, as most are, with the work of Dr. Mercola.  From his TV shows to Internet advertising, he has come to be known as a health expert.  In Effortless Healing, Dr. Mercola reveals the nine simple secrets to a healthier, thinner you.

I am already a very healthy eater, paying close attention to getting plenty of fruits and vegetables and protein in my diet.  I was surprised to find out that whole grains were on his do not eat list but I understand.  They may take longer to metabolize into sugar but eventually they still do.  I am thinking that if weight is not an issue, then some whole grains are fine but to lose weight – they have to come off our list of healthy foods to eat!

His nine steps include water consumption, enjoying the sun, a healthy gut and one of my favorite things to do – “going barefoot.”

I make my own yogurt and kefir. I make and consume fermented vegetables. I eat healthy fats and am very careful about the fish I purchase.  So the information about whole grains, I will take to heart and restructure my eating plan.

I like his natural approach to healthy eating and truly believe that it is the primary key to good health.
