How does our environment impact our health? And what can we do about it?

A doctor with over 30 years of experience explains how our environment affects our health and provides a nine-step action plan to help with fibromyalgia, IBS, and other conditions

Not so long ago, canaries were used to detect carbon monoxide in coal mines. Today, a staggering number of people suffer because of toxins and chemicals that surround us in the modern world. Dr. John Molot, in his work over three decades, has treated more than 12,000 patients with environmentally linked illnesses.

In this book, Molot explains how the environment contributes to the development and progression of many common conditions and illnesses, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and other pain disorders, chemical sensitivity, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies and asthma, diabetes, autistic spectrum disorder, and even obesity. And offers an action plan that will make a positive impact on our health and the health of our children.

“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-blowing Molot’s case is.” — Publishers Weekly
