“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.”

“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.
