The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity by Donna Gates
The Body Ecology Diet Book Description
Publication Date: June 15, 2011 If you’re experiencing discomfort, fatigue, or other symptoms that won’t go away no matter what you do or how many doctors you see, chances are you’re one of the millions unknowingly suffering from a systemic fungal/yeast infection, “the hidden invader.” The result of an imbalance starting in your internal ecosystem, this can be a key factor in headaches, joint and muscle pain, depression, cancer, food allergies, digestive problems, autism, and other immune-related disorders.
The Body Ecology Diet reveals how to restore and maintain the “inner ecology” your body needs to function properly, and eliminate or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy of living. Tens of thousands of people have already benefited from the Body Ecology way of life—people have already benefited from the Body Ecology way of life, step-by-step, how to eat your way to better health and well-being . . . deliciously, easily, and inexpensively!
In this book, you will learn how to: use seven basic universal principles as tools to gain mastery over every health challenge you may encounter; focus on your inner ecology to create ideal digestive balance; conquer cravings with strategies for satisfying snacking and for dining away from home; and plan meals with dozens of delectable recipes, an array of menus, and detailed shopping lists. Although the extreme form of the diet is intended to clear up severe yeast overgrowth, understanding the principles of the diet could help in alleviating very common symptoms of fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain, and on the most basic level, applying some of the principles will help you stay feeling vital and looking youthful into old age. You will be especially interested in the book if you know that sugar is bad for you and want to get a better grasp of the concept, or have heard that eating raw is beneficial because of the enzymes lacking in cooked food but you don’t feel going completely raw is the right diet for you. And of course, if you’re having serious symptoms of yeast overgrowth, or Candidiasis – this is a must read for you.

Comments from people on the Body Ecology Diet
"...The Body Ecology Diet (BED) is how I finally recovered from bulimia & binge eating – after 4 years on the path to recovery (and trying just about everything for longer than that). I am a big proponent for experimenting with things on the level of mind, body and spirit in recovery from addictions & eating disorders. The BED supports this because it honors the ability of the body to heal itself – step by step. That’s the key, it’s a process of taking actions, no matter how small, toward your health. ...speaking to Donna was like someone finally understood what my intuition wastelling me. ...Donna is a visionary in treating the body as a system – connected inextricably with the mind."

"For me, the courage to get well didn't come easily. Physically and emotionally I was very defeated, but I began to feel better within a few days of starting the diet. I can honestly say that I didn't know it waspossible to feel as good as I do, and it gets easier each day. I know it sounds dramatic, but I tell people that it has saved my life. My family and I are very grateful."
– N.V. Marietta, GA
"I really think that the BED system of healing is a diet thatcan become a lifestyle, not just a short term program."
"The BED system of healing has revolutionized my life. Yourbook helped to diagnose my condition and with the help of mydoctor, I am now 4 months into recovering my body, mind andspirit. This "insanity" which has been going on for years isfinally under control and I am regaining my precious health. Howcan I thank you enough for writing the diet bible of thiscentury."
– N.N. Shelburne, VT
"I am 69 and have been using probiotic foods for many yearsand I am in very good health. I never get flu shots or any otherkind either. Diet is the best medicine."
– Sharon Redding, CA
"My son was diagnosed with Autism over two years ago. His bodyhad lots of the wrong bacteria and it struggled to break downproteins adequately - no more. The Kefir breaks the protein downfor him and gives him the bacteria and enzymes he needs to gainnutrients from his food. His ability to think and speak hasimproved remarkably. He was prone to panic attacks and had acompulsive obsessive disorder - this has also greatly improved. Iam so grateful to you for making this possible."
Natasha, Sydney, NSW
"The BED diet has saved my life! At the age of 51, I now havea clean and clear inner eco system. The diet has been excitingand difficult at the same time. But the results are the prize. Ifeel and look 35, as Donna promised. I tell everybody about thebook, and of course, you are going to be the best testimonial bythe way you look to others. I always believed we are what we eat,but never to the degree of the principles of the BED diet, thankyou Donna."

"I wanted to write and thank you for giving me the knowledgethat has saved my life. In March 2001 I went to a holisticallyminded physician who was the first to tell me I had a "gutproblem". Klebsiella pneumonia with zero good bacteria. In AprilI started doing what she said and it really didn't help. I wentthrough her regiment for 2 months. The end of May I started theBody Ecology Diet principles. When the end of July came I was"Cured" of about 90% of all of my lifelong problems. This lastedfor a 2 month period of time. The reason is my wife had to havesurgery which stopped the cooking and eating correctly. Thenmassive stress with many other life changes occurred. I knew Ihad to get back to it. I let it lapse for almost 3 years beforegoing back to it. What a waste of 3 years. I feel much betternow. Not quite where I need to be due to just starting again andI haven't fully implemented the total program. One thing I didlearn is life is precious. Just because we have been use toliving this way for our entire lives or a good portion of itdoesn't mean we have to do it anymore. Blessings to all on thepath of health. Thank you Donna and The Body Ecology Team. It wasgreat seeing you at the Conference in Oct. "
