Integrating the ancient wisdom of yoga, ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine with naturopathic principles and contemporary nutritional science, Jonathan Glass, M.A.c., C.A.T., presents a practical 28-day program, divided into four phases, designed to initiate and maximize detoxification of your body, mind, and spirit from the harmful effects of the modern lifestyle.
Glass reveals the interconnectedness of what we consume, both mentally and nutritionally, emphazing that cleansing of the body alone will offer only a temporary solution if we do not also apply the same cleansing principles to our thoughts and actions. He provides delicious plant-based recipes and step-by-step instructions to resolve blockages and stagnation in the physical or emotional body. He includes tips on liver health and healthy elimination and guidance on how to cleanse the proliferation of toxic thought patterns in the mind as well as practices for a supportive karma cleanse ritual to detoxify the spirit. He explains how the soul is encased in five coverings, known as koshas, and details how to harmonize all five koshas through a plant-based diet, exercise, yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation/introspective practices.
Citing wisdom from teachers he has revered over the years and sages past and present, as well as teachings from the Vedas and other ancient texts, Glass reinforces that how we eat, think and live directly impacts our health in body, mind, spirit, and our relationships. He also shows how the principles of the Total Life Cleanse inherently support the environment. By empowering you with a new way of thinking, seeing, and being, the Total Life Cleanse program allows you not only to heal yourself by changing your life patterns but also to heal others, as we foster a deeper connection to the life that surrounds us and ultimately the universe.
