Publisher's Summary

An acclaimed nutrition educator reveals how the foods you’re eating to get healthy might be making you sick.

“Sally Norton’s well-researched book makes a truly important contribution to the literature in revealing just how much oxalates can damage the human body.”—Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise

If you’re eating a healthy diet and you’re still dealing with fatigue, inflammation, anxiety, recurrent injuries, or chronic pain, the problem could be your spinach, almonds, sweet potatoes, and other trusted plant foods. And your key to vibrant health may be quitting these so-called superfoods.

After suffering for decades from chronic health problems, nutrition educator Sally K. Norton, MPH, discovered that the culprits were the chemical toxins called oxalates lurking within her “healthy,” organic plant-heavy diet. She shines light on how our modern diets are overloaded with oxalates and offers fresh solutions including:

• A complete, research-backed program to safely reverse your oxalate load

• Comprehensive charts and resources on foods to avoid and better alternatives

• Guidance to improve your energy, optimize mood and brain performance, and find true relief from chronic pain

In this groundbreaking guide, Norton reveals that the popular dictum to “eat more plants” can be misleading. Toxic Superfoods gives health-seekers a chance for improved energy, optimum brain performance, graceful aging, and true relief from chronic pain.

*Includes a downloadable PDF of figures and tables from the book

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

“Who knew that some so-called superfoods could be the opposite of healthy? I’ll never forget when my twenty-one-year-old friend who drank daily spinach and almond milk smoothies came down with a kidney stone. Sally Norton’s well-researched book makes a truly important contribution to the literature in revealing just how much oxalates can damage the human body. The conventional advice to eat ‘mostly plants’ is seriously challenged by the reality that plants contain known toxins. Norton makes a compelling case that oxalates are the X factor contributing to many mysterious health conditions.” —Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise

“What if your favorite superfood was actually a supervillain? Sally Norton masterfully pinpoints the changes in our food system and eating style that have turned a common, natural occurring toxin into a potential public health crisis for people who are trying their best to eat well. Her simple and effective recommendations are grounded both in modern science and the principles of ancestral health.” —Aaron Blaisdell, PhD, UCLA professor of behavioral neuroscience

“As a medical profession, we have only recently begun to realize how commonly we are seeing oxalate issues be a part of the presentation of a wide variety of chronic illnesses. Sally has done an excellent job of bringing this information to our attention, including a clear program of exactly how to work with oxalate toxicity. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been wrestling with poor health and not gotten the answers they need from the medical profession.” —Neil Nathan, MD, author of Toxic

Must to listen book

A very very informative book and takes you blinkers off what we think is good eating my not be that. Let’s go back to what our grandparents were eating and that most veggies are seasonal not there for daily use.

Wow! A MUST read by everyone especially health practitioners.

Sally has done an outstanding job in researching and sharing the devastating affects of oxalates that ironically we are told to eat in our everyday diet to be ‘healthy’. This book has given me a golden ticket to improve and heal my body that has been so terribly harmed by these toxins over so many years. I will be forever grateful for Sally and her incredible and well-researched book. There is still so much to learn from Sally and I look forward to taking this healing journey with her support and sharing it with my family and others. Thank you!!
