Dr. Linda Lancaster, a Naturopathic Physician, has been leading the way and curious about non-Western medicine modalities since her teens when she discovered she had colitis. Through her own journey she realized: food is medicine. In turn, she always devotedly reminds all her patients to eat good food, which means whole, organic foods, and not too complicated—“so, we can digest the food we’re actually consuming.”
Dr. Linda, as she prefers to be called, is widely known for her studies on parasites, and the “Goat Milk Cleanse” to rid the body of parasites. In her new book out now, “Harmonic Healing,” she discusses her journey and expertise in natural medicine with the objective to achieve balance and health through “Harmonic Healing.” Harmonic Healing is explained by Dr. Linda as “…learning to live amid the challenges we face as best as we can, and it follows a philosophy of treating the person, not the disease, encouraging their body to engage in the process of health by creating the conditions for health to exist.”
In order to become our healthiest selves, it’s necessary to explore what factors are interfering with our health and contributing to us feeling sick, depleted, and depressed (We’ve all been there!)—or as Dr. Linda describes it, low on etheric energy—the source of life energy and the field in which healing happens. She dives deeper into this concept describing the invisible forces that adversely affect our health: Complex radiation, accumulated pollution, toxic chemicals and heavy metals being the biggest culprits. She then advises how we can repair and regenerate our bodies from these crippling factors that drain our cell energy and consequently suppress our vital force.
Rooted in Ayurveda, yoga, energy medicine, homeopathy and nutrition, Dr. Linda provides a road map for self-care leveraging a 6-week, liver-cleansing program, including nourishing recipes to restore vitality, and healing herbs & spices for overall well-being. She also shares the importance of detoxifying baths to combat the effects of radiation, along with healing meditations for emotional balance. In “Harmonic Healing,” she provides her readers with various tools to support healing through nourishing foods, positive thoughts, love, water and conscious breathing.

DR. LINDA’S PRACTICES
Here are a few recipes from “Harmonic Healing” & Dr. Linda’s suggested Therapeutic Baths:
Dr. Linda suggests the 80/20 rule with food = 80% (plant food) + 20% (protein). Also, it’s a simple thing, but she reminds us to bless our food before taking that first bite and turn the energy into positive energy to nourish our body and mind. Through her research, she believes we can truly cleanse our systems just by the food we consume. For example, fruits are the “cleansers” and vegetables and are the “builders” of the body, and we need lots of builders to digest the protein.
The Liver-Cleansing Diet: Supports cleansing and revitalizing the liver by removing foods that have congesting or aggravating effects and filling the diet with foods that support the functions of the liver. Here are a few of Dr. Linda’s delicious (and nutritious) recipes below!
Green Liver-Cleansing Drink
- ½ cucumber
- 2-3 celery stalks
- 1 green apple
- ½ cup parsley
Place all ingredients in a blender with enough water to blend into a thick drink. (Do not over water, or it will be too thin.) Blend on high until ingredients are thoroughly blended. Drink slowly, milking the drink with your saliva before swallowing. Drink should be thick enough to chew. It is recommended that you make the drink fresh each morning. It does not store well for the next day due to oxidation. You may follow this drink with a breakfast if desired from the allowed foods on Strict Liver-Cleansing Diet list if you desire.
When grilling fish, you want to use a firm fish that will hold up to flipping on the grill.
- 2-4 portions mahi-mahi, red snapper, or salmon steak
- 1 tbsp. grape seed oil
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- 2-4 tbsp. Southwest Dry Rub
Preheat outdoor or stovetop grill pan to medium heat. Rinse the fish in fresh cold water and pay dry. Sprinkle Southwest Dry Rub over both sides of the fish. Brush a small amount of grape seed oil onto the grill before cooking. Cook the fish for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until cook through. Serve with lime wedges.
Dr. Linda’s Coleslaw
- 1 medium red or green cabbage, grated
- 1 medium sweet onion, peeled and grated
- 2 large carrots, grated
- ¼- ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2-3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 2-3 tbsp. Homemade Mayonnaise (optional)
- 1 tsp. sea salt, or more to taste
- 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper or more to taste
In a large bowl, mix together cabbage, onion, and carrots and add enough olive oil to moisten the mixture. Add apple cider vinegar and optionally Homemade Mayonnaise (if using). Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly to flavor and coat all vegetables. Serve chilled.
Dr. Linda also recommends therapeutic baths to help neutralize metals, chemicals and radiation. Patients are asked to drink at least two quarts of water per day since hydration is key to health.
The baths should be taken once week in water as hot as you can handle comfortably without feeling faint. (Note: The temperature should be only as hot as is comfortable for that particular person. Be safe). During the period of soaking, the toxins are drawn to the surface of the skin. As the water reaches or goes slightly below body temperature, osmotic exchange of fluids takes place and the toxins are drawn out of the body and into the tub of water.
For most types of radiation
The Sea Salt and Baking Soda Bath:
Pour one pound (450 grams) of PURE SALT (Sea Salt or Kosher Salt, but be sure to check the label to make sure the Kosher Salt etc. does not contain any additives), and one pound (450 grams) of BAKING SODA into the tub of comfortably hot water.
Soak in tub for 20-30 minutes or until the water cools.
For elimination of pollution
Think all the traffic we sit in commuting, uric acid deposits and some chemicals.
The Apple Cider Vinegar Bath:
Pour 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar into a tub of comfortably and tolerable hot water. Soak in the tub for 30 minutes. Sweating sometimes occurs.
