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.

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.
doing a detox program for years - I have it for almost 5 years and I love it.
