The Myth of Wellness and How We Can Truly Heal

“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? 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.
