Fighting Depression: Raw Foods to Light Up Your Life

October 1, 2012 LYT By:

Have you ever considered a diet that could be designed as a raw food depression-fighter? Eating a diet rich in raw, natural, whole foods means eating a diet void of processed, chemically altered, and nutritionally depleted foods. If you feel like you’re having a tough time fighting depression and opt for an entire lifestyle makeover or just choose to make small gradual dietary changes, you can benefit from an increase of raw foods that help fight depression for you!


A diet rich in raw foods to fight depression helps shift your body and mind from sluggish and sad to healthy and happy. This change means our moods shift from unbalanced, depressed or anxious to calm, positive, and joyous as our digestive organs cleanse themselves of the poisons that may have created the hormonal imbalances in the first place. Get an easy start with some of these simple and delicious raw food depression-fighting recipes and let’s get you off on the right foot making both you and your digestive system oh, so much happier!



A diet containing primarily cooked and processed food, especially a diet rich in refined sugar desserts can lead to sugar addiction and unstable blood sugar levels. This sets off a chain reaction that often leads to mood swings and depression. The enzymes in raw food help balance your blood sugar levels by waking up poisons and detoxifying your cells, thus helping to serve as food that fights depression. Detoxify and stabilize with a raw food depression-fighting diet by including some simple food combining principals to really help eliminate the anxiety and panic associated with unwanted mood swings and cravings.

EAT HEALTHY & FLY HIGH! Eat poorly and sit still!


A raw food depression-fighting diet is a diet free of many common irritants: sugar, dairy, soy, gluten, and eggs but more abundant in whole foods such as: fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. What a joy it is to eat whole foods that really heal the nervous system and nourish and heal your body rather than eat irritants that wreak havoc on your digestive system and leave you feeling unsatisfied, exhausted, and depressed. Even better, to really allow for optimal detoxification, practice eating a diet abundant in raw foods that fight depression combined with frequent colonics NYC with the LYT Method and you will see how this holistic therapy really creates ease in healing depression!

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.

Simple Raw Food Recipes: LYT Staff Favorites

May 26, 2012 LYT By:

Simple Raw Food Recipes For Your Raw Food Cleanse

When we suggest simple raw food recipes for our clients we often hear, I don’t know what to make or it’s too time-consuming. So, we thought we’d share our easiest, tasty, light, and simple raw food recipes for your summer fun! Scroll down to view our favorite LYT-approved raw recipes.

You know by now that if it were up to us we’d have New Yorkers and the planet on a raw food cleanse – not forever, just as a detox.  We’re not saying you should never enjoy Momma’s home cooking but let’s be frank: in order to give your body a break from the sludgy build-up left behind by “comfort foods,” sugars, fermented gas, and cooked oils, you must take the raw-food-cleanse-leap! The more whole foods you consume, the healthier you will be! 

The Raw Food Transition Three-Step!

Put On Your Dancin’ Shoes!

* Step One: Consume more whole foods, 

* Step Two: Consume more raw food, such as those in our simple raw food recipes below.

* Step Three: Receive colonics to guarantee yourself a transformative detox raw food cleanse.

Perspective Is The Heart Of The Raw Food Cleanse

We understand that NYC makes it easy to grab-n-go and we say raw foods are just as easy in your busy day. A little more thought leads to profound results for your body. Instead of seeing your food as a quick-fix so you can get through the day, see your food as a lover. You don’t want some wimpy lover do you? You want a vibrant, fun, me-love-you, long-time-kind-of-lover. Right?

So embrace the idea of an avocado as a light meal or radishes as a crunchy spicy snack, or lovely cherry tomatoes and sliced red/orange peppers as a gratifying light lunch or snack or even a bowl of olives instead of chips. It’s possible!

The owners of LYT also offer group workshops that combine practical and spiritual guidance for those wanting to learn about simple raw food recipes, raw food cleansing, meditation and how to fill your heart with soul enriching practices. Whether it’s for weight loss or health maintenance, we are certain to have suggestions that’ll suit your raw food cleansing endeavors!

For even an even better way to cleanse your body and support your transformation, pair a raw food cleanse (with inspiration from our LYT-approved simple raw food recipes) with a colonic in New York City! It’s the best way to clear out toxins and buildup that can collect in your large intestine.

Juicing For Weight Loss

May 15, 2012 LYT By:

Raw Food Results – Juice Fasting Correctly For Weight Loss

Juicing for weight loss yields rapid results in the short-term, but it may surprise you to know juice fasting combined with colonics will help you achieve your long-term weight loss and health goals. In addition to keeping the excess weight off, juicing will help you transition to a healthier, nutrient-rich diet and eliminate bad food cravings. 


Juicing For Weight Loss Works: Waste = Weight!

The key is waste = weight. Removing excess waste from your body results in weight loss. Juice fasting and raw foods are the best way to awaken and loosen waste, and colonics will help remove it from your body. Read more about raw foods and losing weight here.


Vegetable Juicing Recipes & Fasting Tips


    1. Transition Before A Weight Loss Juice Fast:


               * Alkalinize your diet by including fresh-pressed juices (on an empty stomach), raw salads before cooked food, and whole foods.

               * Reduce/eliminate your intake of acidic/mucus-forming foods such as red meat, dairy, processed starches, and alcohol. 

               *Get a pre-fast colonic for best fasting results. 

    2. During the Weight Loss Juice Fast:


               * Drink approximately 1 gallon of liquid per day during a fast: Composed of a 50/50 ratio of  vegetable juice and water. See the diagram below for the benefits of drinking a substantial amount of water!

               * Get Colonics!!


Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Rookies – Start With 12-16 Ounces

Use equal portions of each of these or use more carrots if you’re new to juicing. As your taste buds shift, you can increase the GREENS!

     * Carrot & Romaine Lettuce

     * Carrot & Celery

     * Carrot & Cucumber

     * Carrot, Beet, & Cucumber

     * Carrot & Fennel

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick & to dissolve mucus!

     *** 1 lb carrots = approx. 8 oz juice

Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Veterans – Consider 24-32 Ounces

     * Romaine & Cucumber 

     * Romaine, Cucumber, & Spinach  

     * Celery, Spinach, Lemon, & Arugula 

     * Grapefruit & Spinach (or shot of Wheatgrass)

     *** Grapefruits are low in sugar, anti-inflammatory, and help dissolve mucus. Keep fruit juice to a minimum during a fast to avoid unmanageable detox symptoms. 

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick!

Colonics Are Necessary When Juicing For Weight Loss

It is crucial to keep the bowels moving when juicing for weight loss. The alkaline juices will loosen more waste than your body is capable of eliminating on its own. The more waste you release with colonics, the more weight you will shed in the long-term! Read more about juice fasting and colonics in New York City to learn more.

Your gut is the "Captain Of The Ship"! KEEP IT HEALTHY!

How To Get Rid of Acne: Natural Remedies to Decrease Inflammation, Irritation and Dehydration

Before you cleanse with Biore, peel with Dior, firm up with Chanel, and moisturize with Prevage, STOP! Learn how to get rid of acne at its roots.

How To Cleanse Your Body of Environmental Toxins: Alkaline Detox Diets and Colonics

April 12, 2012 LYT By:

Did you know that learning how to cleanse your body of environmental toxins is a crucial step in reversing diseases as serious as cancer? 

Phthalates increase flexibility and durability of plastic containers and are known to cause hormone disruption & birth defects.

According to an article written by Dr. Joseph Mercola, he sites information from a report by Columbia University School of Public Health that diet and environmental toxicity cause about 95% of cancers. In our previous blog post, we explained how implementing a raw food diet coupled with regular colonics noticeably improves your overall health and physical appearance. However, we also want you to know a raw food diet and regular colonics can also help effectively remove the environmental toxins from your body that cause cancer!

The Top 3 Environmental Toxins That Cause Disease


According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, a New York Times best-selling author who helps people recover from chronic illnesses through natural methods, Americans have 400 – 800 chemicals stored primarily in the body’s fat cells. If you do not learn how to cleanse your body properly of environmental toxins, you could experience debilitating health conditions such as neurological disorders, cancer, hormonal imbalances, reproductive disorders, fatigue, headaches, allergies and/or asthma. 

Below are the most commonly occurring environmental toxins that people unknowingly consume, and why it’s important to know how to cleanse them from your body: 

1. Mercury: Mercury enters the body through dental amalgams, fish consumption, vaccinations, and contaminated-air inhalation.

2. Pesticides: Insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides coat at least 50% of non-organic food. Pesticide-laden run-off from farms can contaminate the ground water.

3. Phthalates: Often found in soft plastics including water bottles, tupperware, and plastic wrap, phthalates leach from the containers and are absorbed into the body.

BPA-Free Water Bottles From:

How To Cleanse Your Body With Raw Foods: Alkaline Detox Diet


The first step in the process of learning how to cleanse your body of environmental toxins is loosening the toxins from the tissue with a raw food alkaline detox diet. 

Toxins become embedded in your body when the positively-charged acidic waste magnetically adheres to your negatively-charged alkaline tissue. Alkaline detox diets of raw fruits and vegetables contain a negative charge that pulls the acidic toxins out of the cells and into the bloodstream for removal via your body’s elimination systems. 

Fresh-pressed, raw green vegetable juices and salads are the best way to deliver high-doses of alkalinity to your body. Chlorella, cilantro, and raw garlic are particularly good alkaline detox foods that excel at magnetizing environmental toxins from your tissue.

Chlorella Helps Cleanse & Even Prevent Toxins From Being Absorbed By Your Body


The Added Benefits of Colon Cleansing


Once the environmental toxins have been loosened with an alkaline detox diet, it is important to support the process of their removal by cleansing your body with colonics. At LYT in New York City, we believe colonics are the best way to escort environmental toxins out of your body. 

Colon cleansing benefits include more rapid healing time, relief of detox symptoms, and the prevention of re-absorption of toxins into the blood stream. Furthermore, other channels of elimination such as the liver and kidneys can become overtaxed when filtering the blood of environmental toxins – rapidly removing the toxins from your body with colon hydrotherapy will ease their burden.

Colon Hydrotherapy helps cleanse these main organs of detoxification by removing poisons more efficiently from your body.

By including regular sessions as part of your lifestyle, you can experience some of the life-changing benefits of colon cleansing: 

     – weight loss

     – glowing skin and less acne 

     – improved digestion

     – fewer chronic health problems: depression, constipation, back pain, etc.

     – stress relief

If you are looking for other ideas about how to cleanse your body, please see our informative posts on the benefits of lymphatic drainage and juice cleanses. You can also learn more about the benefits of colon cleansing by visiting our Colonics in New York City info page

Reduce Dairy, Reduce Allergies! Natural Allergy Remedies:

March 21, 2012 LYT By:

One of the best natural remedies for allergies isn’t taking a supplement or using a special humidifier, but is simply putting down the cheese platter! More specifically, dairy allergy symptoms in adults such as intestinal discomfort, hay fever, asthma, and watery/itchy eyes, are reduced or even eliminated by lessening and/or ceasing dairy consumption all together! If you take out the dairy, the allergic reaction ceases. Consequently, these symptoms can vanish making abstaining from dairy the best natural allergy remedy you may never eat!


4 Common Dairy Allergy Symptoms in Adults


    * Intestinal Discomfort: Bloating, cramping, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting

    * Hay Fever: Congestion, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, watery eyes

    * Asthma: Wheezing, Bronchitis, difficulty breathing

    * Hives: Itchy, red skin welts appearing anywhere on the body


For those who suffer with sinus allergies, A Neti Pot is a very effective way to clear the sinus passage! 

Why Does Dairy Cause Allergies?

The sensitive immune systems of adults with dairy allergies attack the cow dairy proteins casein (in milk’s curd) and whey (in milk’s liquid) immediately after the individual ingests milk. The antibody immunoglobulin E is instantly activated by the immune system and subsequently, these antibodies trigger a histamine release. This histamine is what creates inflammation in the body, such as inflaming the lungs generating hay fever and asthma symptoms, resulting in the 4 dairy allergy symptoms common to adults.


Eat Your Delicious Natural Allergy Remedy with Dairy Alternatives

There’s no need to cry over spilled cow’s milk when there are a variety of non-dairy delicious and widely available healthy options!  Almond, hemp, and rice milk are fantastic substitutes for (cow’s) milk and can be used in raw food detox diet smoothies and desserts. Use food as your natural remedy for allergies by roasting vegetables with coconut oil instead of butter and alternatively spreading coconut butter on top of warm sprouted grain toast. For cheese lovers, savory spreads such as raw cashew and hemp seed cheese, check out Dr. Cow’s brand, and guacamole are delicious dairy-free options. And if you typically use cheese in your sandwich, you can substitute thick slices of avocado on crunchy sprouted grain toast packed with juicy red peppers and sunflower sprouts for added flavor and texture! 



Nutritional Yeast is a delicious way to enjoy the flavor of parmesan without the congestion from dairy! Sprinkle on: Salads, vegetables, and grains! 

Ya didn’t think we‘d leave out a dessert option, did ya? 

Colonics Assist in the Effective Natural Remedy for Allergies

If you’re experiencing any of these dairy allergy symptoms common to adults, reducing or eliminating dairy coupled with regular colonics will serve as one of the most effective natural remedies for your allergies! Colonics profoundly address the healing of your intestinal discomfort. Furthermore, colonics coupled with alkalizing vegetable juices and enzyme-packed leafy salads help heal inflammation in the body, such as that triggered by a histamine release. If you’re struggling with reducing your dairy consumption, colonics help eradicate cravings for food our body falls ill from and our experienced LYT therapists can work with you to find alternative meal options. Even if you’ve eliminated most or all dairy from your diet, colonics at LYT will help remove that latent cow’s milk residue lodged in your cells and intestine and therefore most efficiently help cleanse your body of this irritating, allergy instigator.

Feel the ease in your respiratory system with less dairy in your diet!
