Clean presents the revolutionary health program that Uruguayan-born Alejandro Junger, MD, director of integrative medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, has developed over years of practice. Beginning with his own personal experience, Junger leads us through the steps of restoring and rejuvenating our bodies and minds with resources that we’ve always had inside us but very often neglected to use. Junger offers a bleak diagnosis of a world that has filled our bodies with toxins. We have come to accept our bothersome health problems—such as allergies, restless nights, anxiety, indigestion, extra weight, acne, head colds, and viruses—as givens. We look to over-the-counter medication to alleviate our daily ailments, a practice that only perpetuates chronic health issues instead of curing their causes. Junger steers us away from self-medicating and claims instead that our health problems can be remedied if we restore our bodies to their full, natural potential. The program is designed for people who live busy lives and find themselves all too often succumbing to toxic fast food diets and poor sleeping and exercise habits. Junger gives the reader ample information and guidance in each chapter of the book, and includes multiple easy-to-prepare and healthy recipes as an appendix. Written in clear, concise, and accessible prose, Clean provides us with the tools to empower ourselves and to take a refreshing, thoughtful look at the way we live today.
