Book review: “The New Health Rules” By Frank Lipman, M.D. & Danielle Claro (part 5-Living)

And finally, the last section on making life for more enjoyable and getting the most out of it!

I hope you enjoyed this 5 part book review!


  1. Clean your tap water. Chlorine and Fluoride added to sterilize tap water are bad for the hormonal system. Use a carbon filtration system sic as Aqausana’s or natural charcoal sticks. If possible, install a filter for your shower too.
  2. Use healthy pots and pans.
    • Copper and Aluminium can leach into food.
    • Teflon pans contains bad chemicals.
    • Never microwave plastic, use glass instead.
    • Stainless steel glass bottles are better, especially in summer.
  3. Don’t buy soap brands that contain:
    • Triclosan
    • Quaternium-15
  4. Check body lotion labels and don’t buy if it contains compound chemicals. Use apps like Think Dirty to buy healthy beauty products.
  5. Keep chlorine out of the house from cleaning products.
  6. Don’t use Antibacterial hand soap. It contains Triclosan.
  7. Wash the air by keeping indoor plants (such as eucalyptus). Open windows when possible.
  8. Green your cleaners one by one. Make them if you wish with: Baking soda + white vinegar + lemons + castle soap + borax + tea tree oil.
  9. Natural toothpaste is not always natural.
  10. Switch from mineral body oil to coconut body/hair oil.
  11. Work standing up. Stand up desks are the wave of the future.
  12. Make a healthy bed. Unbleached cotton, organic mattress cover.
  13. Use color for mood manipulation:
    • red is energizing
    • lavender encourages contemplation
    • blue brings calm
    • light green makes you hopeful
    • orange makes you happy
  14. Clutter is the junk food of the home. Donate, organize, buy less.
  15. Soothe your surroundings.  Curves are soothing, fix or toss broken items

  1. This was a series worth reading! Great rules, better in the long run 🙂 So many things can’t be done back here, like getting wild salmon. But still, many things can be followed like getting fresh veggies. Thank you for such a wonderful blog.
    Love you a lot 🙂

  2. Upon reading your review, I instantly moved my laptop to a higher shelf on my desk so that I can work standing up! Thanks to your contributions, I’m learning something new everyday.
