This is a somewhat long video for our ADD society (13-mins) … but very worth watching! Donna Gates, founder of the Body Ecology Diet, has a wealth of information on probiotics, sugar, yeast infections, rebuilding a health gut biome, and much more that EVERYONE needs to hear.
“The first problem we have had to confront in restoring health to the people is the problem concerning poor digestion. The physical body is born with a certain amount of enzymes to maintain health and vitality. When these enzymes are depleted in the physical body the body becomes diseased and gradually expires… in this ‘civilization’, due to improper eating habits, we have knowingly or unknowingly reached a point where our bodies are severely depleted.” – Dr. John Ray Whitman
Body Ecology offers a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality. The digestive system is intimately linked to the immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria. The Body Ecology Diet and associated products are all specifically designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse, and repair this abundant inner ecosystem.
Donna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, is the international best-selling author of The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity, The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger: Anti-Aging Wisdom for Every Generation, and Stevia: Cooking with Nature’s Calorie-Free Sweetener. An Advanced Fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, she is on a mission to change the way the world eats.
The Body Ecology Diet was the first of its kind—sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic rich. In 1994, Donna introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the U.S., began teaching about fermented foods, and coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintains our basic physiological processes—from digestion to immunity. Body Ecology is a revolutionary system of healing in response to the major deficiencies in medicine and the commonplace approach to treating symptoms while ignoring root causes.
Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. She re-introduced fermented foods to the US and coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintain our basic physiological processes–from digestion to immunity.
