Book Talk: American Detox

Setup

If we just do enough yoga, cleanse with the optimal juice fast, and buy products designed to help us meditate or foster positive thinking, we’ll feel better. That, at least, is what the $650 billion wellness industry wants us to believe. But what’s making us ill, argues Kerri Kelly, author of American Detox: The Myth of Wellness and How We Can Truly Heal, can’t be cured by self-improvement practices. Rather, a commitment to collective well-being is the true path to healing. To become whole, she says, we need to detox from the ideology of individualism, disrupt failing systems, redefine wellness, build strong relationships, and recommit to justice.
