Do you feel wasted? -- Get It Out!
Passing a kidney stone is considered one of the most painful experiences the human body can endure. Diverticulitis causes a stabbing pain in the belly, and can lead to internal bleeding, infection and death. Prostate enlargement can torment a man day and night, just as menopausal hot flashes, sweats and imbalances can destroy a woman's quality of life. Cervical dysplasia and yeast infections plague young women, who must now also fear cervical cancer. And the medical industry says they don't know the cause of any of these conditions, but they can schedule you for regular check-ups, sell you drugs, and perform surgery when needed. Millions of people suffer from one or more of these problems.
Get It Out! explores this wasteland of disease, explaining in clear, concise language how the body works, and how our private lifestyles can get in the way of its proper functioning. Singer and Grismaijer, the husband-and-wife medical anthropologist team internationally acclaimed for their revolutionary book, Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras (Avery, NY 1995), hold nothing back in this insightful, entertaining, and unique book that explains how our cultural taboos and secrets can be our downfall.
Get It Out! is your answer to feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and revitalized. At last, you can prevent and cure the diseases that plague our culture. You need never feel wasted again.

Sydney Ross Singer received a B.S. in biology from the University of Utah in 1979. He then spent two years in the biochemistry Ph.D. program at Duke University, followed by another two years at Duke in the anthropology Ph.D. program, receiving a Master’s Degree. He then attended the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston, Texas on a full academic scholarship, where he spent one year in the medical humanities Ph.D. program, and received an additional two years training in medical school.

Together, Singer and Grismaijer started the Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease in 1991. Their first project was the M.D. (Medical Demystification) Crusade, informing the public of the hazards of medicine and how to prevent them. The Crusade included the Medication Side Effects Hotline, and a national lecture tour explaining the nature of doctors, medicine, and health. Following their research into the cause of breast cancer and the publication of Dressed To Kill, Singer and Grismaijer traveled around the world bringing their health message to millions of people. Currently, they are spearheading an international campaign to educate people about various culturogenic diseases, explaining how to prevent and cure a host of conditions considered a “mystery” by modern medicine . In addition, they have begun an Internet based SELF STUDY CENTER, at selfstudycenter.org, to help people practice health self-care by trying certain lifestyle changes.
