Emotional Release Bodywork: Don’t Skip It!

July 31, 2012 LYT By:

Emotional processing and emotional release bodywork are often overlooked, but did you know they are equally as important as focusing on diet, exercise, and cleansing in order to foster health and vitality? Here are some simple at-home emotional release concepts and de-stressing techniques to consider and explore.

You Are What You Accumulate: Physically & Emotionally

Your body exists in a state reflecting the accumulation of your choices and experiences. The emotional body is subject to the same principles and natural laws as the physical body. Eating a poor quality diet causes toxic residue to accumulate in your cells and tissues over time. As the body becomes overburdened by residue, symptoms or degenerative disease will develop as a result of the constant stress.


The same cause and effect relationship applies to your emotional body. Experiences trigger emotional responses, and if emotions are suppressed or denied they will accumulate and prevent you from having full access to who you are and how you feel. Eventually, the suppressed backlog of emotions will cause imbalances in the body in the form of trauma or illness.

It is important to create a support system for yourself through bodywork for emotional release and effective de-stressing techniques.

Favorite Bodywork & De-Stressing Techniques

• Meditation
There are many different methods and techniques of meditation for stress release. The core of a meditation practice is the ability to stay present. Use it as a way to practice staying present in your body and feeling your emotions. Not only can it help de-stress your mind and body, meditation is also great for your immune system health.


• Make Sound And Be Active
We are electro-magnetic beings. All of our cells are suspended in liquid, vibrating in motion at the same frequency as the earth. As animals, we increase our vibration through sound and physical movement. Increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage is an excellent emotional release bodywork de-stressing technique.


• Release Judgments
Judging ourselves creates emotional pain. Allow yourself to accept how you feel. No emotions are “wrong.” Accepting how you feel creates the opportunity for compassion and understanding towards yourself and others, providing much needed emotional release.


• Support Your Body With Colonic Cleansing
A body filled with poisons will be prone to feelings of constant stress, overwhelmedness, fatigue, and depression. Removing old, accumulated waste through consistent colonic cleansing unburdens your organs and circulatory system. A fundamental de-stressing technique, colonic cleansing provides helpful support for your body to be able to handle emotional release bodywork. Find out how you can benefit from colonic cleansing in NYC at LYT!

Vegetarian Diet Health Benefits: Cut Your Chances Of Cancer

July 11, 2012 LYT By:

The evidence is in, and nutrition experts are in agreement about vegetarian health benefits, and the relationship between the vegetarian diet and cancer prevention. In his book the The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell postulates that the majority of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and other forms of degenerative illness can be prevented by adopting a vegetarian diet.


How Can Meat Lead to Cancer?



Humans are not physiologically designed to process large amounts of animal protein.

Firstly, the waste by-products of protein metabolism are uric acid, ammonia, and carbonic acid. These are known carcinogens that contribute to the formation and growth of cancer.

Secondly, the cellular residue of meat tends to putrefy in the colon after digestion. The accumulation of waste, putrefaction, and acidity mean the body is being robbed of vital oxygen, and the internal terrain is susceptible to cancer and other disease.

That’s why a purely vegetarian diet can help cancer patients, and anyone for whom cancer is a serious concern.


What About Proteins? Cancer and the Vegetarian Diet 

• A protein consists 20 amino acids.

• Our bodies produce 11 amino acids, and we obtain the other 9 from food sources.

• The food-derived 9 are the “essential amino acids.”

• Animal proteins are considered a “complete protein” because they contain all 9 essential amino acids.

• However, animal proteins are high in saturated fat and acidic in nature.

• They lack phytonutrients, water, antioxidants, enzymes, and fiber.



Vegetarian Protein Sources: Plants Are The Best!

Foods that grow in the ground are naturally low in sugar and high in fiber. There are plant-based complete proteins. Other plants may be incomplete proteins, but if you eat a wide variety, you will be consuming all the necessary amino acids and have your proteins covered!

For those with cancer following a vegetarian diet, be safe in the knowledge that you won’t be missing out on protein when you make the switch. Enhance your intake of green cancer-fighting essentials with following vegetarian sources of protein:

• Quinoa

• Buckwheat

• Hemp Seeds

• Chia Seeds

• Seaweed

• Wheatgrass

• Kale and Spinach

• Algae

• Bee Pollen

• Maca

Increase the GREENS!
Get CLEAN & feel LEAN!


Cleanse The Waste!

If you discover vegetarian health benefits and begin to eliminate animal foods in favor of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, cleansing is an important part of transitioning and re-educating your system.

In addition to a vegetarian diet, colon hydrotherapy is the best way for cancer patients to rid their body of old, acidic waste. Read more about colonics and colon hydrotherapy HERE, and about our practice of colonics at LYT HERE.

Please consider doing it regularly.

1. Fresh veggie juice supports your collagen, elasticity and hydration. No joke! Pure minerals and vitamins get absorbed immediately and begin to nourish and cleanse your body.

5. Use dry brushing techniques to help remove excess mucus, toxins, and to stimulate your lymphatic system.

SUGAR ADDICTION: How To Stop Sugar Cravings With A Raw Food Detox Diet

March 1, 2012 LYT By:

Figuring out how to stop sugar cravings may seem like an impossible task but with guidance and knowledge you can reach your goals. The reason a raw food detox diet helps is simple. (And by the way, you don’t have to live 100% raw to get the benefits.) A raw food detox diet allows your body to heal from eating patterns and addictions as well as soothes your nervous system.

Imagine that you are an athlete and your game has been compromised. You would seek the assistance of a coach to help change the pattern or weakness thus improving your game. In this case, your frazzled nervous system throws your game off. A raw food detox diet is the coach that helps you become very aware of your habits, supports a change in them, and develops a better game plan for you. 

How to Stop Sugar Cravings And Heal Your Nervous System 

Your adrenal glands are located on top of your kidneys and secrete the hormones epinephrine and adrenaline. These hormones function heavily in the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates that are contained in most sweets. When we consume an abundance of foods containing refined sugar, the adrenals have to work overtime to best metabolize these unfavorable food combinations. This excessive work on the adrenal glands’ part is exhausting, leaving us too depleted to handle even the minimal stresses of life. This is when the rage and exhaustion take over and the nervous system behaves like a nervous Nelly. You may feel additional levels of:

* Panic

* Anxiety

* Weakness/Inability To Find And Maintain Your Stamina

* Pain

* Exhaustion

Conquering sugar cravings means rehabilitating your body. You have to cease the input of the poisons it demands. This is where a LYT therapist can be of support. Our food combining chart will get you started!


Sugar Cravings: Other Causes? 

Everyone’s body is different. The following underlying issues may contribute to your cravings: 

1. Candida – This is a yeast that grows within the intestinal environment due to an imbalance in your flora, fermentation from poor eating choices, and irregular bowel movements. Remember, mold, fungus, and yeast can not thrive in a clean and balanced environment.

2. Sugar Addiction in the Brain – Sugar activates the same receptors that are activated by morphine and heroin. Get it!! 

3. Emotional Stress Leads To Craving Sugar Eating sugar can give us temporary “pleasure” to hide any emotional pain.

Don't let a one ounce taste bud overrule your good sense!

Raw Food Detox + LYT Colonics NYC = A Rehabilitated Body! 

So you’ve read this and you are considering cleaning up your act but you feel overwhelmed with this information and the food combining chart. No worries, one step at a time. Raw foods will begin the cleansing process by loosening waste and the residue from your old eating habits. Guess what? If you are not releasing these loosened demons they will run amuck throughout your bloodstream creating all kinds of detox symptoms like, fatigue, acne, rashes, etc. This is where colon hydrotherapy, can assist in your detox of sugar cravings. Further support and results will come with the integration of the raw food detox diet. As you cleanse your body of poisonous waste, you will crave foods from a nutrient perspective, not an addictive perspective. People find themselves naturally craving juices and salads instead of jellybeans and Snickers! Voila! You’ve rehabilitated yourself!! 

Enjoy your new cravings for nutrient dense foods!

Sugar Addiction Support 

We understand that these kinds of changes require educated guidance, compassion, and support. This is what separates LYT form the rest. We have guided thousands in their journey from addiction and chronic symptoms and emotional crisis towards balance, peace, and empowerment. LYT offers comprehensive services to support your goals: Acupuncture, Spiritual/Emotional Coaching, and Nutritional Guidance. Stay tuned for future blogs!

What Is A Colonic?

December 9, 2011 LYT By:

What Is A Colonic?

Simply put, a colonic is a bath for your colon. Also known as Colon Hydrotherapy, a colonic employs the use of filtered water (implemented through the rectum) to gently wash accumulated solid and gaseous waste out of the colon. The removal of this waste significantly improves your body’s overall function, elevates your physical and mental health, and reverses various diseases!

Why Gravity Method & Not a Machine?

At LYT we work with the Woods Gravity Method of Colon Hydrotherapy because we believe in the comfort and gentle power of Gravity Colon Hydrotherapy. This is the original method of Colon Hydrotherapy. In a Gravity Treatment, the water prompts the colon’s peristalsis to activate, strengthening this five-foot-long muscle, and yielding improved bowel function in the days and even years ahead! This is why Colonics Rock® at LYT NYC!

What Happens In The Colonic Treatment?

1. You are lying down on a massage table in one of our spa-like treatment rooms. You will be covered with a drape sheet for privacy.

2. There is a 5-gallon tank of water suspended 3 feet above your body that will be filled several times during the session.

3. As the water enters your body it will simultaneously exit, thus allowing you to feel an emphasis on the exit rather than the input of water.

4. Your elimination is contained in a closed tube.

The Colonic Instrument

1. The stainless steel instrument, which is lubricated and gently inserted to the rectum, is called a speculum.

2. It is completely sterilized via a three-step process.

3. Two separate surgical tubing attachments, made of firm rubber material, convey water into the body and carry water and waste out of the body directly into the plumbing. This tubing is changed after each client’s colonic.

Your Colon Hydrotherapist: What Makes LYT NYC Colon Hydrotherapy Unique?

The LYT Colon Therapists are certified at the Woods Hygienic Institute. The LYT Method of Colon Hydrotherapy includes an additional two-month Advanced Training with supervised, hands-on clinic hours supervised by the LYT Founders, Cyndie & Joyce.

Your therapist is trained to connect with your body’s rhythm throughout the colonic treatment via abdominal massage and a gentle manual pulsing of the tube that carries the water out of your body.

Your therapist will gladly answer any questions you have and share knowledge about food combining, vegetable juicing, exercise, and lifestyle practices that will help improve your overall health and suit your personal goals.

All the LYT therapists share a common bond: they were ALL clients at LYT first! Their decision to pursue certification came naturally after being deeply moved by their own transformations.

The therapists who work here are all practicing the lifestyle. They will inspire you to reveal your own most extraordinary health potential with pleasure and simplicity.

We hope this has answered the question: What is a colonic? And for all you Grand Master Cleansers, if you’re curious how to colonic NYC-style, check us out at LYT for the real deal when it comes to greater well-being, beauty, and longevity!

Juice Cleanses: Are You Really Detoxing?

November 1, 2011 LYT By:

Detox! Detox! Detox!

In record numbers, people are going on juice fasts for the purpose of cleansing.  Okay, we didn’t take a survey, but it’s hard to deny that detoxing is all the rage. From health and beauty magazines touting the cleanses of celebrities like, Gwyneth Paltrow or Beyonce, to fresh green juice companies sprouting up everywhere, we have to face facts. Juice cleansing is more than a fad, it’s gone mainstream.

While getting the detox message out is good news, (especially to the world of Standard American Dieters), it seems an important truth about the cleansing process is getting lost in all the hoopla. And here at LYT, we find that a little troubling. So, since we have a bit of expertise on this subject, we want to take a quick, closer look at juice cleanses and detoxing.

Detox 101: Just the facts, folks!

Let’s say you went on one of the increasingly popular three to five-day cleanses promoted by many juice companies.  What’s the deal? Did you really detox? Well, the answer is….


Now, we know some of you might be angry.  “You’re telling me, I drank vegetables for five days for nothing?” Sorry to break it to you, but going on a juice fast alone does not guarantee ACTUAL detoxification will take place. Why?

Waste Removal: The Detox Guarantee

Take a look at the dictionary definition. “Detoxification: the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from a living organism.” The key word here is removal.  Something HAS to leave the body for de-toxing to take place. We repeat, HAS to leave the body.

What juice fasting accomplishes is simply the loosening of waste and poisons. And guess where that toxic gunk ends up? Yes, the colon. But, now that nasty stuff has to be eliminated or it will get reabsorbed into the tissue. So, unless you’re going to the bathroom an inordinate amount of times a day, doing a cleanse without colon hydrotherapy is not a sound idea. This is why people who fast without colonics frequently feel awful. The loosened poison is not leaving the body, so it’s swimming around their systems wreaking havoc.


Detox Cleansing: The Two-Step

So, if you’re thinking of doing a juice cleanse, the most important thing to know is that detox cleansing is a 2-part process:

1. Loosen the waste

2. Eliminate the waste

So, please remember, all you would be Detoxers. When embarking on a cleanse or as part of a lifestyle plan, always focus on this vital second step. And be sure to give us a call, because we’ve been doing colonics in New York City for over a combined 25 years.  At LYT, Colonics Rock® and waste management is our specialty.

Never forget, waste removal is the key to effective cleansing, without it, you’re just drinking juice.
