Dr. Molot provides a nine-point plan that will make a positive difference to our health, and to the health of our children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enlightening This is the book I've just finished. It's really enlightening in terms of how much my body became sensitive to so many things, and Dr Molot (whom I met through the renown Women's College's Environmental Health Clinic) really makes a good case for how our environment affects our health. It helped me connect even more dots to how I was sensitive way back when I was a kid when others weren't. He often talks about fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue (ME) and multiple chemical sensitivity because those are so often found together as 'the pattern'. He also talks about other conditions which are related to environmental health such as asthma, 'sick building syndrome' and the like. So it's a book for everyone. It's very current on the latest research and on how they are stirring more and more towards those conditions affecting our bodies, especially the central nervous system. Dr Molot makes a strong case for that in the book, and even if we don't have the smoking gun to prove it yet, there is mounting evidence to point that way. Dr Molot also suggests different ways to boost mitochondria, detoxify and change your lifestyle in simple ways to help your already overloaded system (especially for people with many co-morbid conditions). I'm now integrating these into my life and I feel better about being able to do something about it that is more pro-active. Finally, changing my diet doesn't feel like such a burden. It's not changing it that would be thanks to Dr Molot's explanations, and the changes I've already made by following the book (like switching to fragrance-free laundry detergent and natural home-made cleaners) have indeed made a significant difference already. Highly recommended. Even with brain fog, I was able to go through the book, even if I had to read only a paragraph at a time. It was worth it! It complemented the visit we had with the doctor who spent 3 hours talking with us at the clinic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read I bought this book after meeting with Dr. Molot, so glad that I did! Very informative, and easy to read. If you have Fibromyalgia, or another Chronic disease, you must buy...you get answers as to why you are sick. I even bought one for my GP, who has been very supportive of my FM.

Editorial Reviews

"Compelling and well-written, this is a solidly researched, detailed explanation of the causes and effects of numerous modern health issues...It's possible to skip straight to the treatment plan, but it would be a shame, considering how persuasive, fascinating, and often mind-bowing Molot's case is." - Publishers Weekly
