Changing Normal Review

We get caught up in our normal life patterns not understanding these life choices are not the best for us. Changing Normal by Mike & Marilu was truly inspirational. Sometimes change is great for us. Their book allowed me to turn the mirror on myself and apply needed changes. Thank you both for allowing me to follow your journey.

I picked this up becau...

I picked this up because I was looking for some health tips during my own cancer battle. One thing Marilu gets right is that there is no holistic approach to fighting cancer in the mainstream medical community. It's all chemotherapy and surgery, nothing about diet and healthy lifestyle changes. Unfortunately for the reader though there is not much practical advice in here. I enjoyed the story of how Marilu reconnected with a former college classmate only to find out that he had cancer after a lifetime of abusing his body. Marilu gets her new boyfriend to completely overhaul is lifestyle but this book assumes you have read her many previous books addressing health changes. I knew many of her diet suggestions, for instance you should be vegan: meat, dairy, and sugar free. While that might be expensive it could be attainable for most people but other things like flying across the country to see prestigious doctors, buying an infrared sauna, and colon cleansing on a regular basis is out of reach for most people not living on a Hollywood budget. I started out really liking the book but by the end I was sick of their traveling the globe in search of their next romantic rendezvous and the multiple mentions of their fabulous sex life. That is not to say that Marilu's boyfriend did not suffer in his treatments. All the money in the world can't save you from that when battling cancer. I just wish there was more emphasis on what an average person on an average budget can do to stack the deck in their favor. The best advice in this book, don't drink, don't smoke is common knowledge. If people choose to ignore that then there is a price to be paid no matter how accomplished you are or how much money is in your bank account.

I got this book to rea...

I got this book to read because I thought it would have lots of practical advice on changing one's life to not only deal with cancer more effectively, but also possibly to avoid having it in the first place. While the book does stress that one must change one's lifestyle - "Changing Normal" - in order to cope with and rebound from cancer, it does not really go into the best ways to do so besides some mentions of diet, exercise, etc. - things I already know. There was little practical advice on the best ways to do so. However, I do know more than I want to about how wonderful their sex life is! I have to admit, this book was a disappointment.
