How to Reduce and Stop Your Sugar Cravings

September 3, 2013 LYT By:

If you’re wondering how to stop craving sugar, you’re not alone. The average American consumes more than 150 pounds of sugar each year. It’s in almost every processed food on the market and restaurants use it liberally to enhance a number of dishes including:

  • Appetizers
  • Entrees
  • Desserts

Unless your diet is devoid of processed foods, you’re probably eating a lot more sugar than you think you are. And that’s bad news if you’re trying to reduce sugar cravings.


Sugar is a Drug: How to Stop Craving Sugar & Stop the “Addiction”

The Greek word for sugar stems from a Hebrew root that means “intoxicating.” The Greeks and Romans recognized sugar as a drug. In medieval Europe, sugar was kept under lock and key by apothecaries.  These ancient civilizations sensed intuitively what our sophisticated modern technology has shown conclusively: sugar is addictive. In fact, some studies suggest it is four times as addictive as crack-cocaine. It lights up the pleasure centers of the brain as surely as any other addictive substance or destructive behavior. Is it any wonder that Americans can’t figure out how to stop craving sugar? This toxic, highly addictive substance is peddled to us each and every day, and its production – as high fructose corn syrup – is even subsidized by the government.


So how can you reduce sugar cravings?

Weaning yourself off sugar may be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever do, but it also will be one of the most rewarding. Sugar is linked to obesity and diabetes, of course, but also to most of the diseases that affect us today.  It’s time to reduce your sugar cravings because sugar consumption inflames the cell linings of the body, and most diseases, (including arthritis, heart disease and cancer) are linked to excess inflammation.  So, figuring out how to stop sugar cravings is well worth the effort.  Here are some of our favorite strategies for getting off the junk:

  • Drink lots of water. Keeping yourself well-hydrated will help your body as it kicks the sugar habit.


  • Make a list of all the reasons you want to get the sugar out of your system. The list might include clearer skin, improved mood, increased energy, weight loss – anything that’s important to you. Carry this list with you and refer to it when you’re tempted.

a new beginning

  • Eat whole foods. Getting the processed foods out of your diet is one of the best ways we know to reduce sugar cravings.


  • Eat – and drink! – your greens. Trust us: green juice will help in ways you can’t imagine unless you’ve tried it. Many of our clients are surprised at the lift they get from green juice. It’s similar to a caffeine or sugar rush, but so much healthier! To help reduce sugar cravings naturally, try some of our favorite raw food recipes.


Flush it out.

It saddens us that more sugar addicts don’t know about colon hydrotherapy, because it is such a powerful tool in any kind of detox program. When you stop ingesting sugar and step up your intake of fresh foods, your body will begin to detoxify, and this is when the cravings will be most intense. A colonic will literally flush away many of the offending toxins, which will result in an immediate reduction of sugar cravings. Cleansing the colon also will give your body greater access to the nutrients in the good food you’re taking in.  The best colon hydrotherapy NYC offers is at LYT, and we’d love to help show you how to stop sugar cravings forever. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have, so please contact us today.

Improving Your Immune System Through Colonics

August 10, 2013 LYT By:

If you think that improving your immune system through colonics isn’t a topic you need to read about, consider this: there are more than 84,000 chemicals in the products we commonly use, and only about 1% of these has been tested for safety. Yes. You read that right. One percent. These chemicals are in the products we use, the water we drink, the air we breathe. Your body has the daunting task of figuring out for itself which of those not-yet-tested substances may be harmful. So even if your medicine cabinet holds nothing but essential oils, even if your diet is so clean that you squeak when you walk, your immune system could still be overwhelmed from exposure to toxins in the environment. But we’re here to discuss the relationship between colonics and immunity and to reveal this not-so-secret – but widely underused – weapon to get you, or keep you, in the best health of your life.


Colonics and Immunity

Let’s get straight to the point: if you’re serious about improving your immune system so that it works at an optimum level, you need to consider the relationship between colonics and immunity. Here’s why: about 70 to 80 percent of the system that governs your body’s ability to fight disease – from common allergies to the flu to diabetes to cancer – resides in your digestive tract, and more than five feet of that tract is comprised of your colon. When you improve the health of your colon, your immune system – and every other system of your body – benefits.


What does the colon do?

So, we’d like to dig a little deeper into the topic of colonics and immunity. You may have heard it said that if your body were a city, your colon would be the sewer system. But your body is not a city, and your colon is so much more than a sewer system. Besides eliminating solid waste, the colon does so much more:



• It uses the foods you eat to manufacture some of the vitamins you need, including Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin K

• It absorbs and distributes nutrients to your body that the small intestine didn’t catch

• It helps keep you hydrated

• It blocks the absorption of toxins and keeps them from going into the bloodstream.

In short, your colon works 24/7 to protect you in myriad ways. And in the modern-day world, it is stressed out with the magnitude of the task.

Wow! How can I help my colon help me?

Improving the health of your colon and improving your immune system go hand in hand. All of the things you do to support your overall health will help to keep your colon in peak fighting form.

• Eat a healthy, plant-based diet with LOTS of leafy greens

• Keep yourself well hydrated

• Exercise regularly

Meditate to help manage stress 

• Make colon hydrotherapy part of your self-care routine.

Step Into the LYT!!

The most compelling way we know to convince folks of the link between colonics and immunity is for them to experience the benefits first-hand. While we’ve worked with clients who have cured themselves of serious, chronic diseases, a more common example is that many of our clients notice that they escape from winter colds, and have far fewer problems with seasonal allergies when they see us regularly.

So, how can we help you? We’re proud to say that the best colon hydrotherapy NYC has available is here at LYT. We’d love to answer any questions you may have or help you make an appointment. You can contact us by phone or e-mail.

Five Anxiety Relief Techniques: Achieve Internal Tranquility & the Benefits of Colonics

July 2, 2013 LYT By:

Good news! This week, we’re tackling the thorny issue of anxiety and we’ve got five holistic and easy-to-implement anxiety relief techniques that work in tandem to bring you internal tranquility: the kind that looks like a floating lotus blossom and sounds like wind chimes tinkling in a summer breeze. Yes, really. That good! Whether you’re having full-blown panic attacks or just need a little help navigating the stress of a hectic life, we’re sure these tried and true anxiety relief tips will help you if you apply them. And because we’re the NYC experts in colon hydrotherapy, we’ll surely be touching on the many benefits of colonics—yes, even when it comes to anxiety!


One: Recognize that you are not your emotions.

Anxiety is a powerful emotion and it’s easy to feel dwarfed by the intensity, especially if you are having a panic attack so intense it’s difficult to breathe. But one of the most important – and effective – anxiety relief techniques we know is to remember that emotions don’t own you and you don’t own them; they’re just visitors passing through. Meditation can be an invaluable part of this process.



Two: Get physical.

In the words of Kyze’s classic house jam Stomp: “Move, jump, jack your body!” Not only should exercise be a part of your daily life, you also should move through an anxiety attack if at all possible. Go for a walk or a run, do jumping jacks, dance, or stomp your feet and flail your arms like a two year old having a temper tantrum. The point is to physically release your emotions.

smh metro. stage page. Stomp production. supplied pics


Three: Consider the benefits of colonics in your anxiety relief techniques.

Anxiety is, quite literally, a state of dis-ease, and a clear sign that you’re overwhelmed. One of the many benefits of colonics is that they clear out old waste and toxins from your body, which dramatically reduces the stress on your system. In fact, colonics will relax your intestinal nervous system and that, of course, will relax all the other systems of your body in turn.


Four: Eat right.

This is one of the best anxiety relief strategies available. Starbucks lattes can’t be a part of your daily routine if you’re struggling with an anxiety issue. Get the caffeine out of your diet, and get rid of the sugar, too. Sometimes, simply changing your diet can make a huge difference in anxiety levels. But you also should amp up your intake of fresh vegetables, particularly leafy greens which brings us back to another of the benefits of colonics: regular colon hydrotherapy will improve your digestion and help your body to absorb more of the vital nutrients that wholesome foods provide.



Five: Let go of as much as you can.

Again, anxiety is a sign that you’re overwhelmed. So a great way to help relieve yourself of your uncomfortable anxiousness is to simplify your life as much as you possibly can. There are two easy beginning steps:

  1. 1. Streamline your on-line routine so that you have chunks of time when you’re not staring at a computer or smart phone screen.
  2. 2. Clean out your closets and cabinets to create space in your home. When your environment is tranquil, you’ll experience a positive effect on your mood.



Let LYT help!

Our team of experts genuinely wants to ease and enrich your life. Our therapists provide the best colon hydrotherapy NYC has available along with other services that will help you healthfully manage stress. Please contact us to discuss natural anxiety relief techniques and let us know how we can be of service to you in any other way.

Holistic Lifestyle: Discover Vitality and Total Wellness

June 11, 2013 LYT By:

Colonics Can Be An Important Part Of The Holistic Lifestyle

What do you think of when we say holistic lifestyle or holistic wellness? Do visions of ashrams, crystals and sacred drumming come to mind, so that the concept seems nice enough . . . but out of reach for most of us? We have jobs, after all. And families. And sometimes some of us might secretly like to see what kind of trouble those Kardashian girls are stirring up for themselves. Who has time to pursue a holistic lifestyle?!


Living the Holistic Lifestyle

Surprise! Following the antics of the Kardashians can be part of your holistic lifestyle. The phrase may sound New Age-y, but here at LYT, we work hard to demystify it for our clients. We want you to understand that holistic wellness is about being whole. A holistic lifestyle is about balancing all the vital areas of your life including your relationships, your job, your finances and your self-care. By embracing and balancing all aspects of your life,you can enjoy optimum physical, mental and emotional well-being, AKA holistic bliss.


Getting to the Bottom of Holistic Wellness

Did you notice in the list above that ‘self-care’ appeared last? That wasn’t an accident. We’ve noticed that when many of our clients first come to us, self-care has dropped to the bottom of their lists. At LYT, we help them move it back to the top. When you attend to your own needs, everyone who depends on you will benefit: your boss, your spouse or partner, your kids, etc. Even the guy at the juice bar is more likely to get a boost from interacting with you if you’re embracing a holistic lifestyle.


Colonics and the Holistic Lifestyle

Now buckle your seatbelt (or unbuckle your pants?!) because this next part may surprise you. Colon hydrotherapy is one of the best tools available to anyone seeking a truly holistic lifestyle. The physical benefits of colonics are powerful, and there is no question that regular colon hydrotherapy can improve your physical health. But we know from our own experience (and that of our clients) that colonics often have a profound mental, emotional, and even spiritual impact as well.

Woman in sun

Cleaning Up Your Act

Maybe it’s not really so surprising that when you engage in an ancient practice (colon hydrotherapy is thousands of years old) to literally rid yourself of the accumulated waste that is weighing you down, your mind and spirit lighten up as well. Time and again we see our clients transform their lives – you’ll forgive us this literal pun – by working from the bottom up. Skin clears up, yes. But relationships also gain clarity. Stomach problems, like acid reflux, disappear. And, at the same time, a client realizes that it’s time to leave a toxic job situation.


It’s seeing our clients improve every aspect of their lives that convinces us that colonics are such an important part of the holistic lifestyle and total mental and physical wellness.


Ready to Live Your Best Life?

We’d love to help you discover true holistic wellness through colonics and colon hydrotherapy here in NYC, along with a host of other services to help you reach your own personal best. Please contact us online, or give us a call. We’ll be happy to make an appointment or answer any questions you may have about how you can live in the bliss associated with a holistic lifestyle.

Natural Alternatives for Depression: How Colonics Help Cure the Blues

June 4, 2013 LYT By:

You might not expect an internet search for “Natural Alternatives for Depression” and a search for “Colonics NYC” to land you on the same page. Colonics are for digestive issues, right? They help to clear up skin problems, too. Right on both points. But colon hydrotherapy is also one of the most important and powerful tools available to people who want to naturally cure depression, without drugs.


The Serotonin Factor

You probably know that serotonin, a neurotransmitter that carries messages between cells, is sometimes called “the happiness hormone” because it’s a key player in regulating mood. But did you know that approximately 95% of your body’s serotonin is produced in your belly? So you can see why anyone looking to treat depression with natural alternatives to drugs would be wise to check in with the gut! In fact, some doctors have noticed that more than half of the patients they treat for depression also tend to have stomach problems. Coincidence? We think not!

The Brain in your gut


Natural Ways to Cure Depression: The Basic Alternatives

Here’s the good news: All the things we suggest you do to keep your digestive system humming happily are also natural ways to cure depression:

• Exercise. Moving your body helps to regulate serotonin production and usage in your brain and your gut.

• Avoid sugar, alcohol and refined flour. These foods are detrimental to your physical, mental and emotional well-being because they tax your adrenal glands – the glands that balance blood sugar levels and support how we think, feel, and react in fight or flight situations.

• Avoid animal proteins. Foods high in protein, such as animal products, cause a drop in serotonin levels.

• Avoid caffeine. It may seem to boost your energy level, but it actually KOs serotonin.

• Eat fresh, wholesome food that is minimally processed. A good diet will go a long way to keeping your mood steady.

• Nurture yourself. Do nice things for yourself. Starting with scheduling a colonic



Colonics and Depression

Medical studies show that there is a strong connection between depression and chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. Your digestive tract actually contains so many neurons that it’s called The Second Brain, and it is in constant communication with the brain between your ears. The vagus nerve is kind of like a sophisticated cable connecting your belly and your brain, so that they can send and receive messages to one another. And the stomach sends nine times more messages to the brain than vice versa! We think that fact alone is a clear indication of why colonics should be in the arsenal of anyone seeking natural alternatives to depression. A healthy gut and a healthy mind are inextricably linked.


Your Body Is a Wonderland

John Mayer had it right. Your body really IS a wonderland, and it deserves the very best support you can give it. If you are severely depressed, see a doctor. But try to find one open to exploring natural ways to cure depression, and know that the team here at LYT is here to help in any way we can. We can provide you with the best colonics NYC has to offer as well as tailored nutrition advice and our years of experience. Contact us online or give us a call at 212-696-1800—we’d be happy to show you the ropes!

How to Have a Healthy Colon

May 21, 2013 LYT By:

“How to have a healthy colon/Let me count the ways … “ Okay, Shakespeare never wrote a sonnet about the colon, but we think he could have. A healthy colon is poetry in motion – emphasis on the motion!! One of the things we love most about the folks who read our blog is that they understand that a healthy colon is as important as both healthy heart and lungs. And what’s one of the most effective ways to keep the mojo movin’ and groovin’ in the six- foot- wonder- down- under that is your colon? The best colon hydrotherapy NYC has to offer, of course, which you’ll find right here at LYT.


Are colon cleanses healthy?

If you’re exploring how to have a healthy colon, and are new to the idea of colon cleanses, you may have some questions. One of the first things many of our prospective clients ask is: “Are colon cleanses healthy?” The answer is yes. If you missed our recent post on colonics and safety, you may want to check it out. But the bottom line is that with the very rare exception of a few medical conditions, colon hydrotherapy can benefit anyone at any time. Yes, you read right, colon cleanses are healthy!

In fact, colonics have been used for thousands of years to help support a healthy immune system, which in turn allows the body to heal itself as it is meant to do. The procedure is gentle and pain-free and the results – clearer skin, more energy, better digestion and elimination, to name just a few common benefits – put colon hydrotherapy near the top of the Why & How to Have a Healthy Colon list.


What other things help support a healthy colon?

Now that you’re asking, “Are colon cleanses healthy?” — and hopefully, have called us to schedule a colon hydrotherapy session at LYT! – you’re probably wondering what else is on the How to Have a Healthy Colon list. It may not surprise you to learn that diet, exercise and lots of water all feature prominently on the list.

Medical studies have clearly established a link between meat consumption and colon cancer, so we recommend our clients eliminate or at least reduce meat and other animal products from their diets. Instead, consume lots of fresh vegetables, especially greens like kale, collards, Swiss chard and arugula. Our staff is here to help you find the diet that’s perfect for your tastes and needs, and we always welcome your questions.

T. Colin Campbell's new book, "Whole, Re-thinking the Science of Nutrition"

Exercise is equally important for your healthy colon, so add it to that How to Have a Healthy Colon list! Walk, run, bike, kick-box, do yoga and/or pilates . . . just find something active you enjoy and do it regularly. Work up a sweat and replenish with lots of fresh water.


Finally, remember, one of the best things you can do for your colon is to bathe it regularly with the help of a trained colon hydrotherapist. Still wondering ‘Are colon cleanses healthy?’ Well, wonder no more! You’ll find the best colon hydrotherapy NYC offers, along with lots of other great resources and information right here at LYT. We’d love to help you and your colon get in the best possible health so please give us a call or e-mail us any questions you may have so we can support you!

Natural Body Detox: Tips and Tools for Eliminating Your Toxins

April 17, 2013 LYT By:

Tips and Tools

Last week we gave you some great spring detox basics to help you plan a spring cleanse. A natural body detox is a key component of this process, so this week, we’ll go a little deeper and give you some easy-to-use tips and tools for effective, natural cleansing.



Tip: Get Back To Basics With Your Natural Body Detox

Attending to the basics is absolutely critical for a natural body detox. This includes:


• Water intake

• Deep breathing

• Rest

While you’re actively eliminating your toxins, remember to be gentle with yourself. You may need more time alone than you usually do, and you will definitely need to make sure you’re getting enough sleep.

Exercise! Christopher Harrison's AntiGravity® Yoga is a phenomenal stress-reliever and detox tool! Even Katie Couric has gotten in on the action.

Tool: Food Combining Chart

To keep your digestive track in top form, remember to follow the principles of Food Combining that we encourage at LYT for natural cleansing. If you find it to be confusing at first, take a peek at our suggested meal plan that makes it really easy-breezy.

Our food combining chart is available on our website for free! Just click the link above to access it & start detoxing easy-peasy!

Meal Suggestions

Page 2 of our Food Combining Chart. Loaded with simple suggestions to help you maintain your spring detox at every meal!

Tip: Lighten Up.

We’re talking about lightening your daily load of toxins. Eating foods like meat, dairy, white flour and sugar, and/or drinking alcohol always taxes your body, but when you’re working on a natural body detox, it’s especially important that you avoid them. One great way to make sure you’re only putting in the nutrients you need for neutralizing acidic toxins to assist natural cleansing is to try a juice fast. Take a long weekend and try a three day fast, and you’ll be amazed at the results. Don’t feel ready to make that leap? Commit to juicing until dinner while you’re on your detox plan or, at the very least, choose days of the week to avoid alcohol, animal products and desserts completely.

You can elevate detoxification by taking a break from poor foods - you don't have to be extreme just be more conscious of your choices!

Tool: Colonic Irrigation.

Looking for a life-changer? The most transformational colonic irrigation NYC serves up is right here for you at LYT! Put the clean in natural cleansing by scheduling gravity colon hydrotherapy treatments. This may be the single-most powerful thing you can do to aid your system in a natural body detox. Flushing away mucus and putrefying fecal matter will make it easier for your body to absorb nutrients and will help re-establish the micro-flora ecosystem so important for good health. After colonic irrigation, you will probably find that your natural cleansing gives you more energy, and don’t be surprised if your friends comment that your eyes are sparkling and your skin is all-a-glow! 

Co-Founder Joyce Rockwood explains the gravity colon hydrotherapy procedure.

Tip: Remember To Ask For Help If You Need It.

Designing a natural body detox may be easier with a little expert advice. Many alternative therapy practitioners, including those here at LYT, can help you customize a program that will work best for you and provide you with moral and “technical” support in case you hit any unexpected snags.

NOTE: If you are pregnant, or have any special health challenges, do not attempt a body detox or any substantial lifestyle change without consulting your doctor or comparable health care professional.

Spring Detox Cleanse: Refresh Your Body & Mind

April 13, 2013 LYT By:

Spring Detox Cleanse: 3 Easy Ways to Refresh Your Body and Mind

April showers are here and that means it’s time to think of a spring detox cleanse. While you’re throwing open the windows and clearing dust bunnies or cobwebs from the corners of your home, it’s also a great time to spring clean your body and mind. Of course we think a good cleanse should include colon hydrotherapy to ensure that you’re left feeling light and refreshed inside and out. Here are some other things to consider as you plan your cleanse.

Spring Clean

Why Do A Spring Detox Cleanse?

Your body is on guard 24/7 to protect you from the toxins that you ingest, like white flour or sugar, for example; the ones you touch, like inks and dyes; and the ones in the air you breathe. Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA tracks 187 air pollutants, and that doesn’t include natural irritants like pollen. Add to that the 3Ps of processed, prepared and packaged foods and it’s easy to see how a body could be overwhelmed. So give yours some TLC this spring. Clean your body by setting your intention for a weekend, a week, or a month and head into summer with a spring in your step. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you design your spring detox cleanse.

Clean your body

1. Make Your Spring Detox Cleanse Juicy!

Literally! Incorporating lots of fresh juice – especially if you include the juice of naturally detoxifying vegetables like celery and cilantro – will help to move the poisons out of your system and give you a boost of nutrition besides. Buy organic vegetables, to ensure you’re not putting pesticide residues into the body you’re working so hard to spring clean. Your body will appreciate the juice because juicing can increase your energy levels and make your skin glow!

2. Exercise.

Get outside for a walk, a run, or some yoga in the park. Your body and your mind need the sunshine, and the movement will help your digestion and improve your sleep. Try to move fast enough and go far enough to work up a good sweat. Sweating is one of the ways your body detoxifies naturally, so it’s a key component of any successful spring detox cleanse. 

Spring Clean Exercise


3. Infrared Sauna: Just Lie Down & Sweat!

Supercharge the effects with an Infrared Sauna detox treatment. We offer this service at LYT because infrared waves are able to penetrate your organs at the cellular level for the optimum spring detox. The part you may like best is that all you have to do is lie back and relax as your toxins ride the infrared waves right out of your body!

Co-Founder Cindy Suarez with LYT’s Infrared Dome Sauna – just lie down, relax, & sweat!

Want More Tips To Spring Clean Your Body?

Next week we’ll give you more great tips to help you design a spring detox cleanse, including specific foods you may want to incorporate, and a way to naturally boost your body’s alkaline levels to help neutralize acidic toxins.

 Meanwhile, don’t forget the LYT team of experts is just a call away if you want us to help you customize your spring detox cleanse, or you decide to supercharge your detox program with the best colon hydrotherapy NYC has to offer!

Spring Clean Your Mind

A true Spring Cleaning taps into your body, mind, & spirit! A spring detox that includes LYT’s tips and therapies helps you engage all three!

Colonic Irrigation Procedure: LYTNYC Experts Simplify It For You

March 16, 2013 LYT By:

Colonic Irrigation Procedure: LYTNYC Experts Simplify It For You

Let’s de-mystify the colonic irrigation procedure! Whether you call it a colonic, colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation, the procedure of administering a colonic is simply a bathing of your large intestine with purified water. That’s it! Finito! Finale! Basta! The end! So, if it’s that simple, what’s all the controversy about? Since 1999, we’ve seen offices offering colonic irrigation in NYC double and even triple. Yet, the colonic irrigation procedure remains a mystery for many and taboo in the medical world. Stories circulate about perforated colons, compromised friendly bacteria, reduced electrolytes, and loss of bowel control/dependency. Doctors have placed fear in people when it comes to cleansing from within. Hey, what’s up doc? Let’s break it down with our expertise.

The Truth About Detoxification Just Might SaveYou!

The Truth About Detoxification Can Save Your Health!

1. Perforation: In a LYT Method Gravity Colonic in NYC, there is a continuous flow of water, in and out of the client’s body, which means that you’re not being filled up like a balloon. We do allow your colon to part-take in retentions of with water BUT this is done after some of the gas and matter has emptied which creates room for sensible supervised retentions. This is a therapist administered and NOT machine controlled procedure. Molto importante! Why? Because you don’t want a machine forcing water into your bum or any other part of your body. You want a human being there with you that is sensitive to your rhythm and the state of your colon. No instruments are traveling through your colon in the colonic irrigation procedure, only warm water.

Colonic Irrigation Procedure Perforation

2Loss of friendly bacteria: Darling please! You think those margaritas, processed foods, and medications aren’t impairing your friendly bacteria? If you like your friends, treat them well and they’ll be loving and loyal. The way to maintain healthy bacteria is to drink and eat nutritious fresh juices and foods, include probiotics (vegan please), and make sure your bowels are moving and grooving so that waste is not sitting around putrefying, fermenting, and destroying your internal balance and impairing your friendly bacteria. Intestinally speaking, you have to keep the poop moving so your gut can rejuvenate you!

Colonic Irrigation Increases & Supports Friendly Bacteria

3. Loss of electrolytes and bowel control or dependency: Now this is getting crazy! Simply put, electrolytes are compounds that get transported in a salty fluid to assist electrical impulses, muscle function, hydration, and PH level. Serious stuff! That’s why we remind you to drink water, raw coconut water, and fresh veggie juices, always, and especially right after your colonic irrigation procedure. If your body is impacted with waste and gas then your absorption becomes limited. In all the years of our experience with colonic irrigation, we’ve never seen in ourselves or in our clients a loss of bowel control or dependency. We work with the Wood’s Gravity Method, which does not weaken your peristalsis. To the contrary, this colonic irrigation method gives your colon a work out, toning and strengthening this vital muscle as the waste matter is alleviated. It just makes sense!

Loss of electrolytes and colonics

Electrolytes are abundant in raw coconut water, raw fruits/vegetables, & nuts. You can even add a pinch of sea salt to your drinking water for sodium enrichment.

Colonic Hydrotherapy NYC: LYT Method Simplifies Your Experience

A colon hydrotherapy treatment is meant to assist your body in removing pollutants that have accumulated from the day to day living of our modern, fast-paced, NYC lifestyle. We have designed the LYT colonic irrigation prep to be easy for anyone to apply. We are sure you will find that the LYT Method colonic irrigation procedure is expertly administered by our skillful, knowledgeable and certified therapists and is synonymous with the best colon hydrotherapy NYC has to offer!

Colonics allow us to live our lives with the ultimate flow and tap into our highest potential.

5 Musts Before A Colonic: Preparing for your Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment

March 8, 2013 LYT By:

Taking the colonic leap? Awesome! We’ve got some easy-peasy ‘to do’s’ before a colonic. Did you know that preparing for a colonic doesn’t require a juice fast? Although incorporating fresh pressed juices (not the bottled/pasteurized stuff) the days before is highly recommended, simply increasing the amount of wholesome foods will help you to prepare sufficiently for a colonic. At LYT, once you book your appointment, (heck, it’s even posted for free on our website), we offer simple preparation guidelines that help support you before a colonic to insure you have the best results.


Preparing For A Colonic: 3 Or More Days Leading Up To A Colonic

It’s not just about what you do the day of a colonic that yields positive results during and after your treatment. Ideally, preparing for a colonic should begin at least 2-3 days prior – like rehearsing for an audition. These easy-to-follow tips will help you create the best possible outcome for your session.

1. Drink Water: You can add lemon, lime, mint leaves, etc. Just hydrate. : )

2. Drink Fresh Veggie Juice: Morning is best! Allow about 30-40 minutes between juice and the next meal.

3. Increase Your Salads and Vegetables: These are anti-inflammatory foods that will act like a broom helping your body loosen matter.

4. Food Combining: This is a smart way to eat before or after a colonic and as a regular practice.

5. Protein Smarts: If you are going to eat protein, choose the lighter versions like fish, chicken or turkey & eat them at dinner vs. lunch in the absence of starches.


Before a Colonic: The Day Of Your Treatment:

The smartest way to begin preparing for a colonic is to drink fresh veggie juice and water, and eat either fruit and/or salad (but not at the same time) the day of the session. Keep it light! Depending on the time of your appointment, you’ll want to allow yourself at least 2 hours free of eating or juicing prior to your session. Keep in mind that it’s not optimal to eat heavy meals or processed foods before a colonic. Keep it simple!
