The 30-Day Faith Detox

The 30-Day Faith Detox
Renew Your Mind, Cleanse Your Body, Heal Your Spirit
Laura Harris Smith
The food we eat and the things we put into our minds are filled with things that bog down our systems. Science tells us that our brains play a huge part in our health. Studies have also shown a correlation between our faith and our overall health. The author has broken down each part of our health and given a thirty day detox to heal all of these areas. Each day has a section for spiritual toxins, emotional toxins, and physical toxins, and ends with a blessing. The recipes and ingredients are common to find, easy to make, and work with any diet. 

I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the different aspects behind the concept. While the thought of completely changing everything for 30 days is daunting, I liked the idea. The detox diet and all of the recipes are based on food colors so the user can customize the month to their tastes, while staying within the parameter of the diet. I didn't feel like the faith part was strong and there were several things that I felt were theologically off. Since I haven't tried the detox, I can't speak to that aspect, so check out some of the other reviews. But I can say that I probably won't try it because the faith part isn't as strong as I would like, several of the meal plans seemed off nutritionally to me, and the overall idea was too daunting. Overall, it was a fun book to read. The concept, if I tweaked it, is intriguing, but I won't be keeping the book.

I received this book free of charge from Chosen in exchange for my honest review.
