Author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
Dr. Judith Pentz is a connoisseur of techniques and therapies that have been proven to work over millennia in other cultures. A key example is panchakarma, drawn from the Ayurveda healing tradition of ancient India. In Cleanse Your Body, Reveal Your Soul, Dr. Pentz reveals how and why this healing approach has endured over centuries, and how it can benefit those of use in modern cultures as well. If you have an instinctive reluctance toward mind-bending medications, this subtle, gentle way of healing your body mind deserves you attention.

I enthusiastically endorse Dr. Judith Pentz’s latest work, Cleanse Your Body, Reveal Your Soul. Dr. Pentz is an accomplished medical practitioner devoted to the field of integrative and functional medicine, and to the evolution of mainstream paradigms through the incorporation of scientific research and venerated systems of traditional. In her journey towards healing wisdom and personal enlightenment through sacred Ayurvedic traditions, Dr. Pentz establishes herself as a practitioner who practices what she teaches, a clinician who does as much as says, and strives continuously to better herself in order to enhance patient care. It is a brave odyssey that she has undertaken to unlock the mysteries of panchakarma, and in selflessly sharing her experience through this book, Dr. Pentz achieves a resonance with lay and professional readers alike and illuminates aspects of healing too often overlooked by modern medicine: mindfulness, inner balance, and the interconnectedness of body and mind. Cleanse Your Body, Reveal Your Soul is a powerful retelling of Dr. Pentz’s personal journey, one that will resonate with readers who seek health through balance, balance through health, and inspiration for action from an accomplished modern-day healer.
