There is a new book that offers solutions for the poor diet of Americans and all the daily toxins that we deal with that cause inflammation, disease, and susceptibility to super viruses.  Feeling Good: Living Low Toxin in Community and Everyday Life is now available on Amazon.

Are you eating food that will make you far more susceptible to the severest of super virus’s ravages?

Now more than ever, our attention is on the food and chemicals we are putting into our bodies.  We are hyper-aware of the toxins that surround us every day and how our health can be literally hanging on a thread, even when we think we do everything right.

Are you one the 50 million people that have autoimmune disease?  Or are you one of the114 million that have diabetes?  Do you have heart disease?  There are 121 million out there that do.   There are also 15.5 cancer survivors in the United States.  50% of Americans will get cancer over their lifetime.

Why does author Cheryl Meyer want to share all this with you?  All of us in the groups above are much more susceptible to the Corona-19 virus.  Although this virus could KILL ANYONE, are you in the highly at-risk category with millions of other people?

If you are scared that your body will not be able to resist the virus, or if you are terrified that your family might get this disease, then now is the time to change how you eat.

It is never too late to put healthy habits into place.

Are you already immune vulnerable?  How frustrating it is to feel lousy all the time and have pain and be scared.  And now, in this time, are you losing hope of finding a solution?

“Nearly 9 out of 10 American adults are unhealthy and that is a major reason the COVID-19 crisis is so much greater than it needs to be.” (Mark Hymen, MD)

Why has Corona-19 hit some people harder than others?  The common theory is that America eats poorly.  The Standard American Diet consists of food like substances that are not real food.  Fast food and processed food have synthetic ingredients that are making us unhealthy.

It can be difficult to wade through the incredible influx of information that has been pushed out into the world lately.  Who is credible?  Who understands what needs to be done?  But most of all, who is going to tell us the answers we are seeking in in language that we can understand?

What ends up happening is that people get frustrated and do not make the changes they need to make. They do not know where to start.  If they have chronic illness, it gets worse.  If they have an autoimmune disease it can become multiple diseases.  And in times of pandemic, they are leaving themselves more vulnerable to more disease.

53% of the nation’s children are already diagnosed with a chronic illness.  This system is doomed to repeat itself unless something changes.

Cheryl Meyer’s new book, “Feeling Good: Living Low Toxin in Community and Everyday Life” takes readers on a journey that is deeply rooted in her own experience with health.  These are the tips she learned improving her own immune system lowering her pain from autoimmune disease.

Cheryl Meyer’s second book answers the what, why, and the how to eliminate common SAD food stuffs from our lives.  Her tips on how to eat healthy, no matter where you are, are invaluable and from firsthand experience.  When Cheryl is at home, she controls what goes into her body by cooking her own food. The book explains the necessity of cooking organic whole foods and eating the rainbow using healthy ingredients.  She also shares how to buy healthy food on a budget.  However, if someone wants to eat out in restaurants, at other’s homes, or on a car trip, or to travel domestically and internationally, it is harder and the author shares all her tips on how to remain low toxin.  She learned her tips in her own search to return to wellness and a pain free life.

if you are one of the 90% that is unhealthy, incorporating healthy habits will be a giant step towards wellness.  Implementing these tips will fortify you and your family against pandemic diseases and chronic illnesses.  And best of all, you will start to feel great again.

It is never too late to put healthy habits into place.  So where to start?  Start with eating real nutrients in real food.  We know this, but Cheryl’s tips show you “how” to do this.

The author includes a section on raising healthy children in the 21st century and has a section on how to raise healthy pets.

It is never too late to start making health-conscious choices.  Follow these tips and start today to boost your immune system to protect yourself from super virus’s and disease now and in the future.

Take care of your body and teach your children to follow your example so that you all have a happy place to live.  Protect yourself and your family.



Once again Cheryl Meyer has captured a truly educational masterpiece every reader will benefit from, enjoy, and gain valuable insight into the ever-challenging world we live.  Dan Young, BCN, CNC

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

Time, making the time to write it.  It had been rattling around in my head for a year before I wrote it.  I wanted to revise and update my first book first, and I did that last summer.  That allowed me to concentrate on book 2.  I joined a book writing group, with a mentor and that helped keep me on track.  Since I knew what I wanted to say, it made writing the actual content easy.  I needed to do research for the children’s health section, and the pet’s health section, but much of the rest of the book was based on my own experience.

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

I write the book.  My husband is my editor, so he immediately reads as chapters are finished, and sends it back to me for comments.  I commissioned illustrations to be done for each chapter.  I commissioned the front cover.  I had previously bought a group of ISBN numbers, so I assigned one to this title.  I wrote a Table of Contents.  It was all a work in progress. 

When the book was completed, my husband did a much more thorough editing job and we sent it to a formatter. Each step of the way went back and forth.  When the book was complete, I wrote the back cover of the book and sent that off to my graphic artist.  (Fiverr) I sent advanced copies to 4 people who agreed to be early readers and write a blip for the back cover.  All are influencers in health.  When it was all completed, I published it on Amazon.

What motivated you to become an author?

I got sick 8 years ago with autoimmune disease.  I was a solopreneur for many years, and just hadn’t taken care of my body. My conventional doctor had no clue what was wrong with me.  I refused a life of pain and pills.  I had a well-seasoned staff and turned my business over to them.  When I found and implemented solutions for all my horrific pain, I started to run into others in the same predicament as I was in.  They had a mystery ailment and were frustrated and hopeless.  I knew I needed to do something to share all my newfound information.  I went back to school at 67 to become a health coach to have credibility to talk health.  I had a BA in English from UC Berkeley but wanted the health credentials.  I then sat down and wrote my first book.  I wrote 430 pages in 2 ½ months.  I somethings think I channelled the book.  I also wrote it in a class that my coaching school ran, and they walked me through all of the how to’s.  I won an award in that course for best book, and it has since won 13 more awards.  I knew that I had to write the rest of the story in book 2.

How many books have you written so far?

4 books in total, all interconnected. 

It Feels Good to Feel Good, Learn to Eliminate Toxins, Reduce Inflammation and Feel Great Again has won 14 awards.

As an author, do you prefer the traditional book or online version?  

Both.  For entertainment, I prefer E-books.  They travel with me and can be continued to be read wherever I am.  For health and nonfiction book, I prefer something in paperback.  I want to be able to hold it, underline it and refer to it again and again.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing? 

I am certainly not going to make my fortune as a writer, but I do coach, and speak and just started my own podcast.  My books are the keystone form my mission, and they are an integral part of what I am now doing.  I sold my business last summer.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

If you want to write a book, just sit down and start writing.  It you reach a place where you are blocked, put that aside and continue writing something else that you need as your content.  Keep moving forward.  Do not let anything stop you and don’t let fear sabotage you.  First round, nothing is set in stone, so just get it onto paper.  And understand that the book isn’t going to sell itself.  Your job isn’t complete once it’s published.  It’s your responsibility to get it out to the world.
