Natural Treatment For Acid Reflux & Constipation

January 28, 2013 LYT By:

You may be one of the 33% of Americans wondering if Prevacid, Zantac, and Nexium are your only BFF’s or if there really is a natural treatment for acid reflux. In our experience, there is a connection between acid reflux and constipation.

We’re excited to share a testimonial of one of our lovely LYT clients who has healed acid reflux and constipation through LYT Method Colonics in NYC. Sarah Siciliano, VP/Director of Business Development for 321 Launch and Founder of Sweat-Working, shares her journey from acid reflux and constipation to a symptom-free, healthy, and vibrant life! The proof is in the video.

The ‘Behind The Scenes’ Details about Acid Reflux

When your body doesn’t eliminate well, your system gets backed up and creates pressure upward, toward your diaphragm. Your diaphragm then initiates pressure upward, to your stomach, which releases its acids toward your esophagus! Traffic is now going in reverse! This leads to your acid reflux symptoms. How to find relief? LYT Method Colonics NYC are a natural treatment for acid reflux. Let us explain:


• First let’s address natural vs. unnatural. Colonics are a natural treatment for your acid reflux. The colonic simply bathes your internal elimination system with filtered water. Taking a cocktail of drugs every day, however, is not addressing the root cause of your acid reflux symptoms.

• In one LYT NYC colonic session you can relieve your body of enormous amounts of gas pressure and waste that are not moving freely.

• As your colon empties over time, a lightness occurs and your diaphragm is freed of tightness and pressure that once provoked symptoms like acid reflux, constipation, bloating, etc.

• Your blood chemistry shifts as you clear toxins from your body that were the root of your acidosis and were causing your terrible twosome of acid reflux and constipation.

Acid Reflux: Constipation Is At The Root


While we understand the medical explanation of indigestion, but we believe our perspective on a natural treatment for acid-reflux and constipation will offer you more reliable relief. In our experience, symptoms like acid reflux are the result of constipation and a buildup of acidic residue from very processed foods, cooked oils, dairy, red meat and flour products, in your body. Acid reflux and constipation go hand in hand. Healthy bowel movements should occur 2-3 times a day and if this is not happening then there is a buildup within your system and a natural treatment for acid reflux may be ideal for you. Acid reflux is just one of the many symptoms that you and many others may experience because of a constipated system.

Our LYT Method Colonics in NYC have helped countless clients heal and live in happier and healthier bodies! Contact us to see what we can do for you! Detox Rocks®!

6 Ways to Get Clear, Glowing Skin—Naturally

January 19, 2013 LYT By:

We are thrilled to announce our dear friend and LYTnyc client, Britta Aragon, as our guest blogger on clearing skin naturally. Britta is a cancer survivor and has been a LYTnyc client since 2007. As the Founder of CV Skinlabs and a ground-breaking expert in the safe cosmetics industry, she shares her experience with colon hydrotherapy in her testimonial video and the following six essential tips!

Are you looking for ways to get clear skin naturally, without having to resort to harsh, chemical products? Give the following tips a try, and see if you don’t notice clearer, more glowing skin within a few weeks.

1. Colonics for Clear Skin

Chemical-free skin care may include natural products that you trust, but sometimes you have to think beyond your skin. For instance, are you feeling bloated, constipated, or nauseated? If so, your system may be overloaded with toxins. In fact, acne eruptions are often a sign that your body is trying to eliminate excess waste products. 

I get a colonic in NYC at LYT every three weeks. This not only helps me feel refreshed and energized, but helps take the burden off my skin. Cleanse the body of toxins, and you make it much easier to clear skin naturally and for your skin to maintain a glowing appearance. 

2. Treat Dry Skin

Skin is usually dryer in the winter, which can make acne worse. Dry skin weakens the skin’s natural barrier, which causes the immune system to try to repair the damage. Unfortunately, that means inflammation, which encourages acne. A weakened barrier also allows bacteria and chemicals to more easily penetrate the skin. 

To moisturize, avoid drying soaps and chemical cleansers, hot water, and chemical irritants; invest in chemical-free skin care products; use a humidifier in your bedroom; and try natural oils like grapeseed, lavender, chamomile, and rosemary which are great for oily or acne prone skin. My favorites are the Pure Facial Moisture Balancing Oil from Suki and CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion. 

3. Eat Raw As Much as Possible

Not only does eating raw food help cleanse your system and hydrate your skin, raw food is especially important to maintain during the winter. 

The skin is an organ that is responsible for managing several functions such as protecting you from the elements, trying to hold onto water, regulating body temperature, and getting rid of toxins. A raw food diet supports all of these functions, and makes it easier for skin to repair itself. Raw food also helps the skin protect itself from free radicals, cutting down on hyper-pigmentation and acne outbreaks. Finally, eating raw can help loosen waste and assist your purpose of getting colonics for clear skin even more effective! 

4. Eat More Acne-Fighting Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Consuming foods that tame inflammation can help reduce acne outbreaks. Try green tea, berries, kelp, wild-caught salmon, shiitake mushrooms, avocado, flax, papaya, broccoli, extra virgin olive oil, and sweet potatoes to help clear skin naturally. 

Meanwhile, stay away from inflammatory foods like fast foods, refined foods (white flower, white sugar), processed meats, junk food, and especially dairy products. Also, stay away from high glycemic foods that spike your blood sugar, which causes your body to release more insulin. Spiked insulin levels increase the body’s inflammatory reactions, which can increase acne breakouts. 

Finally, counteract inflammation in the body and in the skin and clear skin naturally by adding anti-inflammatory spices to your food like turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and rosemary.

5. Try Zinc

Did you know that zinc is found in high levels in the skin? Yet according to a 2007 study, zinc is one of the most common mineral deficiencies. The same study found that people with acne were more likely to have low levels of zinc than those who didn’t have acne. Try supplementing with zinc to clear skin naturally—about 400-600 mcg daily. 

You can also try upping your intake of zinc-containing foods like almonds, walnuts, pecans, oatmeal, and dark chocolate.

6. Drink Water with Lemon First Thing Every Day

Water helps flush the toxins out of your body, which can relieve your skin of waste products that tend to encourage acne breakouts. Adding fresh squeezed lemon is a great chemical-free skin care tip that gives your skin some extra fighting power by fighting off bacteria and accelerating healing. Lemons are also rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from pollution and other sources of free radical damage.

Ana Zaharia Testimonial: Raw Food to First Time Colonic

January 14, 2013 LYT By:

LYTnyc is happy to share Ana Zaharia’s story about the road from raw food to her first time colonic. We know how unsure and nervous people can feel about choosing the right wellness center and finding the right therapist for their first colonic. We get it! We also had a first time colonic experience back when we were clients. So we are well prepared to walk you through the steps from preparation all the way through to your post colonic protocol. 


Step By Step: Colonic Irrigation For Beginners

Here are four simple preparation steps to colonic irrigation for beginners. Remember, these steps can begin immediately and especially 2-3 days before your first time colonic irrigation appointment.

1. Drink fresh vegetable juice on an empty stomach to loosen matter and gas in preparation for your colonic irrigation treatment.

2. Hydrate your intestinal system properly. A sensible amount of water to drink daily is based on half your body weight converted to ounces. IE: 140 lbs / 2 = 70 ounces of water. Your body needs plenty of water to efficiently flush its system.

3. Refrain from drinking carbonated beverages, eating dairy, processed foods, white flour, and heavy protein like red meat.

4. Increase salads and vegetables for lunch and dinner and yes, they can be delicious meals

We often hear from our first time colonic irrigation clients that they feel better even after just following these initial steps. If you already eat a more vegetarian-based diet, then you can simply drink juice, eat salads w/ avocado, and follow with steamed vegetables the day prior to your first colonic to support a more productive treatment.

Whether you’re a first time colonic client or you’re already detox savvy, we know you will love LYT. Our clients’ only regret is wishing they had googled “colonics nyc” and found LYTnyc so much sooner!

A Colon Hydrotherapy & Weight Loss Story: How LYTnyc Client Kelly Shannon Made It!

December 29, 2012 LYT By:


Colon Hydrotherapy & Weight Loss

We are delighted to share LYTnyc client Kelly Shannon’s colon hydrotherapy weight loss testimonial. While it is true that one of the many perks of a colon cleanse is weight loss, this process must be accompanied by a mindful approach to lifestyle. Kelly learned how to shift her lifestyle and eating habits sensibly and create a nurturing and healthy relationship with food therefore her colon hydrotherapy sessions truly assisted her weight loss and health goals.

Colon Cleansing and Weight Loss: These Two Go Hand-In-Hand!

LYT’s colon cleansing weight loss method is a gradual process and a healthy experience where you learn the power of a proper colon cleanse teamed with food combining principals. Let us share some points explaining how colon hydrotherapy helps your body reduce weight and rejuvenate.

* Remember that your body is made of trillions of cells that desire to repair themselves and shed unwanted materials (gas, processed foods, and chemicals) as easily and as often as possible.

* Your clever cells will heal and shed gracefully if given the opportunity. Your cells “shedding opportunity” is elevated with the process of colon cleansing. When your colon is emptied of impurities it has not alleviated on its own, the colon cleansing process allows trillions of cells in your body to shed excess gas and waste that it wouldn’t have otherwise accomplished. Thus, a colon cleanse = weight loss. Voila! You feel youthful and vibrant! Think of it like a student who participates in some extra help after school improving his brainpower to elevate his grades!

* Waste = Weight

* Less Stored Waste = Less Weight

* Less Weight = Longevity

* This colon hydrotherapy process allows your cells to contract (become smaller) thus alleviating pressure on your kidneys, liver, and other organs, as well as, allowing all elimination systems to flush properly. Our clients often express an overall sense of rejuvenation in their entire body!

* When you are ready to embark on a colon cleanse weight loss program, we suggest you follow some simple and moderate shifts as suggested in LYT’s Colon Hydrotherapy Preparation Guidelines.

Our Co-Founder, Cindy Suarez, speaks on working with Kelly: “I really appreciated how open Kelly was to shifting her paradigm toward a colon hydrotherapy weight loss approach. I consulted her regularly to integrate meditation, writing, and visualization to better manage stress. It is such a pleasure for me as well as the LYT staff to see our clients accomplishing their goals with the LYT Method.”

We are grateful to Kelly for sharing her story & hope it inspires you and many others!
