Now a New York Times bestseller!
Do you have to tell your leg to heal from a scrape? Your lungs to take in air? Your body that it's hungry? No. Your body does these things automatically, effortlessly. Vibrant health is your birthright and within your grasp; you just have to step out of the way. In Effortless Healing, online health pioneer, natural medicine advocate, and bestselling author Dr Joseph Mercola reveals the nine simple secrets to a healthier, thinner you. The results are amazing and the steps can be as easy to implement as:
- Throwing ice cubes in your water to make it more "structured"
- Skipping breakfast, as it could be making you fat
- Eating up to 75 percent of your calories each day in fat for optimal health, reduction of heart disease and cancer prevention
- Avoiding certain meat and fish, but enjoying butter
- Eating sauerkraut (and other fermented foods) to improve your immune system and your mood
- Walking barefoot outside to decrease system-wide inflammation (and because it just feels great)
- Enjoying a laugh: it's as good for your blood vessels as fifteen minutes of exercise
Effortless Healing is the distillation of decades of Dr Mercola's experience and cutting-edge medical knowledge. With his wisdom and that of your body, you can optimize your health, your weight and your life...effortlessly.

"Effortless Healing is a very worthwhile read not only for the public but also for healthcare practitioners, who need to be teaching their patients the importance of following the advice in this book. These pages contain foundational truths that are well-researched and have already been proven effective in patients by Dr Mercola, by me, and by other practitioners. If people, especially those in the United States, would act upon the simple, do-able recommendations in this book, I predict that the incidence of obesity and most chronic diseases would drop dramatically. Read Effortless Healing and then apply its wisdom in your life so that you also can experience vitality and longevity!"
