Fabulous health tips and tricks for budget conscious families!


Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…You Could Be Healthy on a Budget:  A Really Simple Guide To Health For Really Busy People by Stephanie S. Lalosh is an informative and well-written health book.  The flow of the book was fast paced and there are fabulous tips and tricks throughout.  Stephanie is clear on the fact that every body is different and there are things that work for some and not others.  She personalizes each chapter by sharing her own family’s experiences.

It is a quick read and there are applications that may be made to any lifestyle immediately and on a low budget. This book covers everything from nutrition tips, exercise suggestions, to a healthy environment and attitude.  She provides website addresses so that more in-depth information may be researched by anyone wanting to know more about a particular subject. 

I particularly enjoyed her clear easy explanation about how body function and toxins build up in the body.  There is one bulleted section of the book in “The Next Steps” that was a little overwhelming with information, but also acts as a checklist for healthy living.  I will be implementing some of the suggestions that were new to me (castor oil).  Lalosh also provides some great tips for kid’s health as well such as silverhydrosol and zeolytes to boost the immune system.

This book is helpful and does, as the title says, provide budget conscious tips for anyone who would like to learn more about living healthy in our world today.  I would recommend this book for anyone looking to make some basic changes in their lifestyle.
