Editorial Reviews

Review

"An invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to improve their health through conscious eating." (Anne Newkirk Niven, SageWoman)

"Fasting gives us an opportunity to cleanse and rejuvenate on many levels. In Carrie L'Esperance we find a knowledgeable guide who not only teaches us about the time-honored wisdom of seasonal fasting but also inspires us to live in a healthy way year-round. The recipes are delicious!" (Vesela Simic, Food Editor, Yoga Journal)

"If you want to live a healthier life, this may be the book for you." (Barbara Ardinger, Ph.D., Whole Life Times, November 2002)

"Combines both ancient healing wisdom and modern science to offer readers a guide for restoring health and energy." (Taste for Life, September 2002)

"An entire chapter is devoted to herbs and another to bathing, mostly with herbal infusions. The recipes show what good eating is all about." (The American Herb Association, Vol. 22:4, Jan 2008)

"For those people already committed to the nutritional approach to health, The Seasonal Detox Diet will inspire and add a new dimension to their health practices. For those readers new to the concepts and principles of natural, nutritional healing methods, the use of a healing fast may improve their health and well-being dramatically, leading them to a whole new way of perceiving their bodies and preserving their health." (Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients)

“An invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to improve their health through conscious eating”
--Anne Newkirk Niven, editor of SageWoman magazine

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.

CARRIE L’ESPERANCE, a certified iridologist and former gourmet food professional, has spent more than twenty-five years studying the healing systems of the world’s cultures. She now specializes in helping clients discover the individual nutritional requirements that will allow them to feel and function at their best. She lives in San Francisco.

This book has been a treasured guide of mine for several years now, and I recently purchased my 3rd copy! Not only is it filled with important facts on how to nourish your body's needs according to the seasonal changes, it also includes delicious recipes that have become staples in my kitchen. Each season is represented with two chapters. The first chapter focuses on detox diets that target specific body parts, and suggests specific foods for creating health in that particular part of the body. The second chapter lists all of the foods that are available during the particular season, and recipes for including them in your diet. If you like to care for your body, enjoy shopping at the farmer's market, and love to be in your kitchen this book will be one you will have forever! Nothing in the book is extreme, it is all focused on using what nature provides us according to each season to create a healthier you! Buy it, read it, and get well!

Format: Paperback
This is a one of a kind book, very special that prepares you for the next season. It is about adjusting your body with the right foods so that you can prevent illness and other maladies, say for instance in the Winter, colds and flu. Also has the best information on fasting and the teas you would make to drink during these fasts, and how to break them. I have personally fasted with these teas and made it to 6 days and felt really wonderful, cleansed and renewed. I highly recommend this unique book, you will not be dissapointed.

The other reviewers describe this book well. I have collected natural health books for over 35 years. Been using this one for about 9 years now There are quite a few health books that have served me well. Of those, this book is my favorite.

So many people still have a pills and potion concept about health, which is why so many "health food" stores limit their stock to pills and potions. This is not a book for those people. This is a book for people who want to cultivate healthy habits and reap the benefits. It is the best guide to eradicating parasites that I have ever seen. No expensive packaged pills and potions necesarry. Of course, it is so much more. A great gift to yourself and anyone interested in natural health, novice or experienced.

I bought it but didn't know how to start or do a detox. This book tells you all you need to know to start and continue
doing a detox program for years - I have it for almost 5 years and I love it.
