An age-old adage says, “Health is Wealth.” This adage embodies the belief that nothing is of utmost importance than our health. Cheryl Meyer has an extensive understanding of this ideology, and the process needed to imbibe it in our lives. She thoroughly infuses all her wisdom into this nonfiction book titled Feeling Good: Living Low Toxin in Community and Everyday Life. In this book, you will discover the elements needed for a healthy and productive life.
The book is neatly structured and divided into nine parts with thirty-one chapters. Part One discusses the vital elements of a long life. The intricacies of food qualities are explained in Part Two. Part Three and Four give a detailed explanation of how the author handles her diet in restaurants and during travel vacations. In Part Five and Six, Cheryl Meyer evaluates the need for self-care and the importance of nature. The remaining parts focus on the need for practical hygiene at home, how to maintain our children’s health, and proper pet care tips. Read to understand how these sections are intertwined in several ways to make us feel good.
The concepts in this book are not just innovative but admirable. The author leaves no stone unturned in wrapping up the fundamental truths about our body systems. Although the author writes from a personal view, her passion for good health emanates from an in-depth tendency to avoid illness and live a healthy, productive, and sustainable life. What I love the most about the book is that it is easy to read and assimilate, and it is highly educational.
We live in a world dominated by technology, pollution, and millions of other things that produce unnecessary toxins that shorten our lifespan. Cheryl Meyer's book is useful and instrumental in navigating the path to a clean organic life. I enjoyed reading about her extensive travel experiences and how she maintained her healthy diet in Chapter Nine. Also, I enjoyed the hilarious illustrations at the beginning of every chapter.
The author's writing style is engaging. The knowledge in this book is incredibly vast and commendable. The takeaways at the beginning of each chapter aided my understanding. I liked the fact that the author wrote extensively about pets and intermixed her experiences with imperative quotes and suggestions from doctors. Expertise suggestions are sprinkled all over the book. That shows that it is not just impeccably researched but also possesses valuable sources.
The startling thing about this book is the revelations of what constitutes toxins for both humans and animals. I finished the book with a refreshed mindset. Therefore, I am rating Feeling Good: Living Low Toxin in Community and Everyday Life 4 out of 4 stars because it is very informative. Also, the book is professionally edited because I found a few grammatical errors that did not impede my reading experience.
Furthermore, there is nothing I dislike about this book. The key to a healthy life and overall wellness starts with us. This book will appeal to people who wish to make good and healthy choices in life.
In the author’s word, “We are what we eat, but the basic problem is that we have no idea what we are eating.”
