The Body Ecology Diet is a succinctly written yet detailed book by Donna Gates, published by Hay House in 2011. The approach and guidelines outlined in this book have been the most effective and health-inducing strategies my clients have implemented to shift away from chronic digestive tract imbalances. I have witnessed yeast and parasite-rich and otherwise-depleted digestive tracts transform into healthy and thriving ecosystems supporting my clients’ health and well-being on all levels when the cleansing guidelines are adhered to for an average of three months and the maintenance guidelines are integrated in a new approach to nutrition.
“The Body Ecology Diet (BED) shows you how to restore and maintain the important ‘inner ecology’ your body needs to function properly and to eliminate or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy of living. With the confusing array of supplements, health foods and fads out in the marketplace today, Body Ecology offers a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality. The straightforward necessities we provide are all geared to one fundamental law of nature: the fact that our digestive systems are intimately linked to our immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria: the microscopic ‘good guys’ that must be present in your intestines for you to be healthy. Our products are all specifically designed to help you cultivate, nourish, cleanse and repair this abundant inner ecosystem (hence the name Body Ecology).”
