The word “nourish” to some people means to eat food that is good for you. Stephanie Hrehirchuk has recreated the concept of nourishing to mean doing anything that is good for you. For instance, creating a new habit not to eat sweets would be nourishing. You could eat fresh fruit or whole grains instead. The ultimate goal of this book is to walk you through a detox of your body, mind, and spirit. Eating the same foods over and over, especially if they are processed or contain chemicals, is to toxify your body. Hence, you can detox and get rid of some of those kinds of things from your cells. Nourishing practices also include meditating, self massage, herbal remedies to help you relax and heal, and preparing beautiful and healthy food for yourself and your family. Even time can be nourishing. When a person is stressed, oftentimes all they need is to get away by themselves and or/with God, to think, reflect, journal, or just do nothing.
Nourish by Stephanie Hrehirchuk really appealed to me because I have many major stressors in my life. I can see now how I can rework some of them so they are less stressful to me. In addition, the book is beautifully designed with drawings and poetry. This book will be good for any overworked or overstressed person, for instance those who take care of others, those who work long hours with little appreciation, or even mothers of young children. A 21-day and a 3-day detox are outlined in Nourish, depending on how much you need to detox and how much time you have. The 3-day detox could be more intense, but at the same time it could be more manageable because it is only three days. I think it would do everyone a lot of good to take some of these principles to heart and learn how to relax and be good to themselves.
