"An intimate, honest, accountable, and thorough invitation into healing" -- adrienne maree brown, author of Pleasure Activism
"This book is a powerhouse." -- Ashley Judd

The myth of wellness is a lie. And until we learn to confront and dismantle its toxic systems, we cant ever be well.

Better, stronger, healthier, whole--the wellness industry promises us that with enough intention, investment, and positive thinking, well unlock our best selves and find meaning and purpose in a chaotic and confusing world.

The problem? Its a lie.

The industry soars upwards of $650 billion a year, but were still isolated, insecure, and inequitable. "Wellness" isnt making us well; its making us worse.

It diverts our attention and holds us back from asking the questions that do help us heal: Who gets to be well in America? Whos harmed--and whos left out? And whats the real-life cost of our obsession with self-improvement?

To be truly well, we dont need juice fasts or yoga fads. We need to detox from a culture rooted in perfectionism, white supremacy, and individualism--and move toward a model that embodies mutual responsibility and extends beyond self-help to collective care.

In American Detox, organizer, yoga activist, wellness disruptor, and CTZNWELL founder Kerri Kelly sounds the wake-up call. Its time to commit to the radical work of unlearning the toxic messages weve been fed--to resist, disrupt, and dream better futures of what wellness really means.
