About the Book

"For readers of Hope in the Dark and Natural Causes--The myth of wellness is a lie. And until we learn to confront and dismantle its toxic systems, we can't ever be well"--

Book Synopsis

"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 can't ever be well.

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

The problem? It's a lie.

The industry soars upwards of $650 billion a year, but we're still isolated, insecure, and inequitable. "Wellness" isn't making us well; it's 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? Who's harmed--and who's left out? And what's the real-life cost of our obsession with self-improvement?

To be truly well, we don't 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. It's time to commit to the radical work of unlearning the toxic messages we've been fed--to resist, disrupt, and dream better futures of what wellness really means.

Review Quotes

An intimate, honest, accountable, and thorough invitation into healing.
--adrienne maree brown, author of Pleasure Activism

American Detox is not only a wake-up call but a call to remember that if some of us aren't well, none of us are well.
--MICHELLE C. JOHNSON, author of Finding Refuge

Urgent and unflinching.

A brilliant call for the reimagining of what it means to be well in our world.
--TARA BRACH, author of Trusting the Gold

American Detox [reminds] us that we cannot purchase our way into well-being. It is built of the materials of interconnectedness and belonging, and without them we can't manifest the highest form of wellness which is humanity's wholeness.
--SONYA RENEE TAYLOR, author of the New York Times best seller, The Body Is Not an Apology

Kerri Kelly is radically committed to our well-being by teaching us how to 'be well'--within ourselves and with one another."
--LAYLA F. SAAD, New York Times best-selling author of Me and White Supremacy

American Detox is a blueprint for collective wellness, from an activist and healer who walks the walk with integrity, grace, and a revolutionary love.
--VALARIE KAUR, Sikh activist and best-selling author of See No Stranger

This book offers the reframe that is needed in a culture desperately seeking wellness and perfection while being bankrupt of the remembrance of our inherent wholeness.
--TRACEE STANLEY, best-selling author of Radiant Rest

Kerri, with her trademark dedication to fierce and honest self-examination, holds both herself and the culture of wellness accountable for the social dis-ease that continues to segregate health among its diverse citizenry.
--SEANE CORN, author of Revolution of the Soul

This book is a valiant, brave, and timely compass and tool that we need right now as so many navigate the often wild, predatory, and ailing space of the so-called wellness industry.
-- OCTAVIA RAHEEM, founder of Starshine & Clay, a meditation and yoga studio for Black women and women of color, and author of Pause, Rest, Be

... a call-to-action to improve the wellness of our communities and the world at large, too.
--SAH D'SIMONE, spiritual revolutionary and best-selling author of 5-Minute Daily Meditations
