Book Description

March 2006 1591791006 978-1591791003 Box Flc Pa
Created by holistic physician Mark Hyman, M.D., The Detox Box gives you everything you need to complete a safe, effective, and medically informed detoxification program at home. Designed for total cleansing to remove toxins and allergens, boost immunity, and restore energy levels, the program can be done in 7, 14, or 21 days. The Detox Box includes: 64-page study guide with record-keeping section to track your progress 2 CDs-one featuring a detailed presentation on the scientific reasons we need to detoxify, the other leads you through three twenty-minute yoga sequences specifically designed to support you as you detoxify 70 flash cards laying out every step of the program-diet and supplements, contemplative activities and yoga practices, preparation checklists, daily schedules, shopping lists, and more Two questionnaires to help you assess your levels of exposure Produced by Susan Piver and Padma Media. Does Your Body's Detox System Need a Jump Start? The Detox Box contains questionnaires to help you determine if you should undertake the program, and, if so, how often. Try this short self-evaluation: 1. Are you strongly bothered by gasoline fumes or common household cleaners? 2. Do you have a negative reaction when you eat foods containing preservatives or MSG? 3. Do you feel "wired up" when you drink even small amounts of coffee or black tea? 4. Are you exposed to synthetic carpeting? 5. Do you take antacids? 6. Does your family have a history of cancer? 7. Have you experienced food allergies? 8. Do you regularly consume alcohol or tobacco? 9. Are you exposed daily to cell phones, computers, or microwaves? 10. Does pollen, grass, or ragweed bother you? If you answer "yes" to five or more of these questions, you would likely benefit from a complete detoxification program.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've tried the rest...this is the best Dec 26 2007
Format:Paperback
We are led to believe that aging is accompanied by a sharp decline in our physical and mental abilities. We think getting older means getting sick. But, as you'll soon discover, disease is not an inevitable part of aging. In fact, it is even possible to become biologically younger while you become chronologically older! Are you interested in doing a detoxification program at home? Take a look at "The Detox Box" In this cutting-edge program, Dr. Mark Hyman, former medical director from the famed Canyon Ranch Health Resort, unveils a revolutionary science-based program for staying active and disease-free for life. "Every day, our bodies face the challenge of detoxification - cleansing our system to keep us healthy," says Hyman. "The Detox Box" will work for absolutely everyone - old, young, healthy, sick, or anywhere in between.

This program presents the new science of staying healthy. This powerful program shatters the myths of today's "fix-the-broken-parts" medicine. Instead of masking symptoms, it's a proven plan for identifying and eliminating the forces that cause more than 90 percent of today's most common and devastating diseases. It's a patient-centered plan that shows you how to create a lifetime of good health. His kit contains all the information you need to complete your detoxification program at home.

* Two detox questionnaires - one to assess how badly you may be suffering from impaired detoxification, the second to assess your future health risks and how often you should go through the program.

* 70 flash cards that take you through the program, including sample daily schedules and how to maintain the effects once you've gone through the program.

* Two CDS - "Why Detox?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and very useful book June 16 2006
Format:Paperback
I am glad I spent the money and time on this book. It really opened up my eyes to a lot of things I never really thought about. I am now more conscious of what I do with my body. I have been recommending this book to all my friends around. Most of us really don't understand what we need to do to be healthy, or we think we are doing the right things while we aren't. This book really helps you to become as healthy as you can be. Are there more thorough detoxifications available? Probably, but few of us have the luxury of following them. The only other book that I can recommend with Detox Box is "Can We Live 150" with many cleansing recipes for the entire body.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the investment Jan. 22 2005
By Shannon Freise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I first received "Detox in a Box" I was disappointed because the program is based on a plan that requires the procurement of over $100 worth of supplements. However, after listening to the introduction CD I decided that $12.00 to $15.00 per day was a worthwhile investment if it meant saying good-bye to my miserable state of mind. I originally intended to do the 7-day program, but found that it was so easy to follow and I felt so great that I followed the plan for 21 days. I lost over 15 pounds and feel terrific. As a result of this program, I have made major adjustments to my diet. This is not a "quick start" program; after you receive the materials at least a week of preparation is required - Keep in mind that it is well worth it! In addition to "Detox in a Box", I also recommend, "Breaking the Food Seduction".

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved it- Do it. June 25 2006
By M. R. Barger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
6 25 06 I did The Detox Box program about 60 days ago and wanted to let a little time pass before I commented--. I loved it!!!

I went with all of Dr. Hyman's suggested `favorite' supplements.

Yes, it was expensive and some what time consuming, but I feel it was so very worth it.

It helped me kick the intense sugar, white flour and caffeine addictions that had hold of me. This is extremely miraculous for me and I am so very thankful to God I found this program.

Here are some of sources (showing costs) that I used. - Once I made the decision to do the detox I was in a rush to get all these things in fast and in some cases I paid more in shipping charges as a result.

* From Total Health (Internet Company out of NY)

* From Organic Pharmacy (Internet Company online)

with UPS shipping 28.75

Buffered Ascorbic Acid (Vit C) by Pure Encapsulations $13.65

Magnesium Citrate by Pure Encapsulations $6.95

I even had to get a blender (our other one bit the dust a few years ago) but it is a good thing I did because since the detox I have kept up with the morning shake several times a week. On the detox the hardest part, but doable, was getting down the Bentonite Clay and the Psyllium. I did the program pretty close to prescribed and have since kept up with eating more Brown Rice, Fish, Veggies and with drinking more water and Herbal Teas.

I think giving up that morning coffee was really helpful for me both with controlling my evening sugar cravings and improving my joint pain. Lost about 10 lbs so far and plan on losing more - really feeling more energy and joy.

Check Amazon.com for all the `program' products as well. I really appreciate Amazon and the users who wrote reviews on this product. I hope I can encourage someone to try The Detox Box. Hopefully you will share my success with it. I have about 100 self help health books (including Mark Hyman's other books) and so far this one has been the catalyst to give the others possibility!

Do it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Felt great in just 4 days March 16 2006
By Eydie E. Desser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I love this detox box. The information you need is written very clearly, and you won't have any trouble following the program. When I first got on the program, I had a tough time "downing" the vitamin C, bentonite clay and psyllium. But I felt so great after just 4 days, it was worth it. The shake is actually very good, and the rest of the food you are supposed to eat is everyday healthy organic vegetables and fish and brown rice.

You can get very creative with the spices recommended and make each meal really flavorful.

I like to detox every few months, especially after a vacation or holiday week of eating and drinking too much. Not only do I lose 4-5 lbs in 5 days, my skin looks more radiant and I feel like I look younger! I'm 47 and my skin is starting to wrinkle. The detoxing makes my skin tighter and smoother...a side benefit I was not expecting. The products cost about $250, but lasts a long time. You can get most of the products at an organic grocery store (Whole Foods/Wild Oats). Or of course at a special pharmacy and on-line. Thank you Dr. Mark Hyman for this wonderful program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable results May 18 2006
By D. B. Bittrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I first looked at what was required and the flax seed stuff never tried before, I thought this is for the birds! But I weighed 235 pound on May 10th and my blood pressure tested by the doctor and at home was consistently 150/110. Today is May 18th and my weight is 219 pounds and my blood pressure has been for the last 3 days 120/80. I'm only going to continue the detox for up to 14 days. I will be following the advice of this doctor from now on. My HMO doctors did not know what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am amazed! May 19 2006
By Jean Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
OK.... No one would beleive this. My husband and I went on Dr. Hyman's diet for 2 weeks. I lost 8-10 lbs. My husband lost 12 lbs. We eat lots of food and it is ALL healthy.
Now for the amazing part. My son has Down Syndrome and severe respiratory problems. I looked into the side of allergies for him through Dr, Hyman's ideas. I actually make shakes out of the same food that my husband and myself eat. My son hardly has the congestion that he once had. We believe that gluten and other horrible [...] had created his health problems.
In the past we have brought him to many specialists: pulmonologists, cardiac specialists, allergists and on and on.
He was on so many antibiotics and other steroids. I thought I would loose my precious son to a horrible fate.
We work closely with this diet for him. It has been successful for allergies, which he probably had/has which never showed up with any allergy testing we had in the past.
I am delited, please try this book.
