Book Giveaway: What’s Your Poo Telling You? and What’s My Pee Telling Me?










CONTEST CLOSED!  THANKS EVERYONE.  Look before you flush!

We depend on doctors and machines to let us know what’s going on inside our bodies and often forget to note the most obvious daily check-up.  Courtesy of the Bastyr University bookstore we’re giving away this useful and highly popular two- pack of books written by Josh Richman and Anish Sheth.

What goes in must come out. It’s that simple. But what does it all mean? Therein lies the mystery and the key to your health and happiness.

With universal appeal (everyone poops, after all), this witty, illustrated description of over two dozen dookies (each with a medical explanation written by a doctor) details what one can learn about health and well-being by studying what’s in the bowl.  The authors then  expand their probing inquiry in their follow-up book to reveal the secrets and splendors of farts and pee. Wow.

After reading these books, you’ll never think of your bodily functions in the same way again! This pair of little books often makes an appearance in waiting rooms for all sorts of health practitioners.  Whatever you call your “waiting room” you’ll want this informative twosome.  How to enter?

  1. My favorite cleansing food is definitely Beets. I have always loved them, since I was a kid. I even use the beet greens in my juicer.

  2. My favorite cleansing food would have to be a juice of fresh pressed cucumber, celery and green apple!

  3. I take chia seeds daily for cleansing, as well as eat lots of greens and beets in season! Thank you!

  4. I have a lifetime history that leans towards constipation. When that history
    strikes, I am back to focusing on fresh COOKED vegetables…and adding
    a glass or two more of fresh water during the day. It amazes me how fast
    I forget to eat cooked veggies…

  5. My naturopath (a graduate of Bastyr) recommends 1 day of eating just pears and apples along with plenty of water. It really works!

    I also make smoothies with greens, cranberries, lemon, ginger and seeds such as chia, flax, sunflower, pumpkin and hemp. Delish……

  6. I love reading everyone’s recommendations for cleansing; i am so impressed that there ARE people who are really doing a healthy lifestyle; sometimes, down here in Florida, it seems that the whole country has gone amuck; and not that it hasn’t but, followers of CookusInteruptus are my heros!

      1. (Don’t know what happened to the rest of my original explanation…) I have been a fan of your website, videos, & recipes for several years – I love you guys! But, I am not a member of the Facebook community so I can’t “like” you there. That’s okay. I am grateful to have found you in the first place and have so enjoyed the hilarious videos and delicious recipes. Thanks for helping to make us all healthier and providing laughs along the way. Cookus Interruptus is awesome!

  7. I know grains aren’t so popular these days, but a handful of thick rolled oats cooked with cinnamon & a chunked up apple is my favorite cleansing food! Add a teaspoon or so of homemade ghee stirred in at the end, maybe some nuts or seeds, and with the apple there’s no need for sweetener. Everything seems to “go” just right if I stick with that for breakfast every morning!

  8. Well, maybe this doesn’t count, but I consider coffee as my cleansing food/drink. I love it and drink 4-6 cups a day, plus two shots of espresso in the evening.

  9. organic apples, and when I can’t get them (living in the upper great plains) I like to drink licorice tea

  10. Oooo, this has always been an issue with me since the dark leafies and other raw fruits and veg don’t help!! A greasy spoon diner breakfast can do the trick but that’s not what I need or want! Help! Apparently I need these books. ;)

  11. My favorite cleansing food is juice made with greens, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cranberries, blue berries, orange and apple. Sometimes I sneak in a little fermented beets, because I love them and my husband doesn’t!

  12. Very warm water and sea salt. If you add a LOT of salt, so it tastes like ocean, it’s not absorbed and basically washes right through!

  13. homemade soups of all kinds – especailly pureed carrot and congee made with homemade chicken stock and loads of leeks, garlic and ginger

  14. Juicing wheatgrass, drinking and/or bathing in bentonite Clay (Redmond Clay) and intermittent fasting. (Not all at the same time.)

  15. My favourite cleansing food is raw almonds. I find that if I don’t eat my nuts, it’s more difficult to go. Favorite cleansing drink is lemon water.

  16. a cup of whole flax seed granola is the ONLY thing that works for me. not beets, not pears, not prunes. my body likes flax (thank goodness something works)

  17. Many things, but beets stand out for me. They work fast! And I do love the taste of them, especially in a or as a salad.

  18. I love beets! It’s hard to believe they are for detoxing because they are so yummy! A great green smoothie always leaves me feeling better too.

  19. I once made massaged kale salad and quinoa salad with shredded carrots and chick peas on the same day. Lots of fiber.

  20. lemon water, herb tea, apples, cooked broccoli and greens and beets, kombucha, yogurt, oatmeal…. I love them all!
