by Cherie Calbom, MS with John Calbom, MA
Author Cherie Calbom, MS, with John Calbom, MA, has penned a comprehensive cleansing manifesto in Juicing,
Fasting, and Detoxing for Life: Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing Diets. In the book’s
introduction we read, "There’s no magic bullet in this process—it’s about giving your body what it needs to
heal and stay healthy along with getting rid of what hinders the healing process... Your body was intended to
function well... your body was designed to heal."
I appreciate the balance Cherie Calbom recommends: "Some people tend to go overboard on health and dieting. They

Calbom explains how the five primary organs of elimination function together to benefit the body, and how the
body (and mind) suffer when these organs are overburdened due to environmental toxins, poor diet choices, or chronic
stress. To halt the damaging effects of negative thinking, she advocates a mindful "spirit of imperturbability" and
tells you how to achieve it.
To help the reader get started, Calbom tells what to look for in a juicer, what detox products may be useful and
which to avoid, and outlines various detoxification schedules. There are cleansing diets for: colon,
liver-gallbladder, kidney, lungs, skin, lymphatic system, Candida albicans, and heavy metal, and she prepares us for
the notorious-but-meritorious "healing crisis." A handy resource guide is also included in the book.
Cherie Calbom is a registered nutritionist and author of several diet and juicing books. Juicing, Fasting, and
Detoxing for Life: Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing Diets is one-stop-shopping for anyone
serious about improving their health by resolving health problems where they begin. You won’t be disappointed.
