Traditional cultures worldwide have followed the art of eating according to the natural rhythms of the seasons. Keeping the body in peak condition requires occasional fasts or periods of rest for the body’s hardworking systems. Today, faced with daily exposure to chemicals, additives, and pesticides, our bodies need to detoxify and find healing respites more than ever.
A unique blend of dietary world wisdom, The Seasonal Detox Diet provides readers with a dynamic program for using healing fasts to detoxify, tone, and restore the body for optimum energy and performance. Unlike modern notions of fasting, Carrie L’Esperance’s Seasonal Detox Diet emphasizes dietary alteration rather than abstinence. She offers recipes designed around seasonal changes and geared toward individual health concerns, including fatigue, digestive disturbances, and excess weight gain. The author also includes instructions for healing herbal baths and cleansers to round out your home healing program.
