Nutritional support worldwide for digestive-related health issues; especially yeast overgrowth with Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.).

Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) is a system of health and healing designed by Donna Gates to address yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth in body. The diet’s purpose is to boost immunity by alkalizing blood and restoring inner ecosystem to naturally support body to be a self-healing organism.

The goal of B.E.D. is not to eradicate yeast, bacteria, or viruses. That would be unreasonable, impossible, and even more importantly is this would be less than ideal. Instead, let us focus on restoring body strength, so that all parts come together to work in harmony. A true symphony 🙂

Beginning in 2003, this way of eating has been used experimentally in the autism community. Anecdotal reports show that the first group of children with autism trying this diet all showed rapid and remarkable improvement.

Most chronic diseases, including autism, are a cascade of events that often start with a fungal infection in the gut and then the pathogenic organisms escape the intestines to invade rest of the body. The result is essentially an infected gut, and in the case of autism, an infected brain.

Body Ecology Diet can benefit:

  • Babies with colic, diaper rash, or cradle cap.
  • Kids with autism, allergies, ADHD, or asthma.
  • Teenagers with acne, anxiety, or anorexia.
  • Women with reproductive, menstrual, or hormonal issues.
  • Men with weight gain, erectile dysfunction, or jock itch.

…. as well as people of all ages who struggle with:

  • Inflammation
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Epstein Barr Syndrome
  • Food Cravings
  • Muscle/Joint Pain
  • Yeast Overgrowth (i.e., Candida, oral thrush, athlete’s foot) 
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Poor Memory, Focus Issues, Brain Fog
  • Headaches, Migraines
  • Bacterial Overgrowth (i.e., GBS+, SIBO)
  • Digestive Issues (i.e., bloating, constipation, food sensitivities)
  • Skin Rashes
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Viral Overgrowth (i.e., sinusitis, hepatitis, gastroenteritis)

A wounded gut is unable to perform its primary role of first line of defense for the immune system and can lead to secondary illnesses. A wounded gut is unable to contain incompletely digested nutrients inside the digestive tract walls where food particles “should” stay and often leads to a person showing allergic reactions. A wounded gut is unable to fully absorb nutrients to nourish the body (host) which can lead to nutritional deficiency, weaker inner organs, and biochemical dysregulation.

I followed various eating regimes and most impressed with B.E.D. as incorporates principles that worked in the past (Blood Type Diet, Food Combining, Anti-Candida Diet) and takes things one step further. B.E.D. is a master plan for impeccable health.

The first step to restore your “inner body ecology” and reverse yeast, viral, or bacterial overgrowth is to starve out the pathogens “die-off” living in excess/out of balance in your body (host) by not eating the foods that feed them; allowing them to grow/populate (i.e., sugar, yeast, gluten).

The goal is to make your inner ecosystem/gut an unsuitable environment for them in which to live so they naturally die. We do this in various ways by step-by-step following the clearly laid-out principles in Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) with nutrient-dense, probiotic-rich, properly combined food to alkalize blood, repair damaged intestinal lining, and colonize gut with friendly flora to correct body pH and assist with digestion/elimination.

Now, my body is strong and vital with plenty of energy, and I regenerate (heal) easily. Tara helped me build a bridge back to my body where everything begins. 

Stage 1 of B.E.D. is free of gluten, sugar, pasteurized dairy, and yeast for 3 months to give the body time to begin healing process. The ingredients and methods of preparation in this diet ensure food is easy-to-digest, nutrient-dense, and probiotic-rich. In a few diligent weeks, most people feel a significant shift in how they feel and see long standing health issues begin to ease. B.E.D.’s core foundational principles are traditional, tried ‘n true for thousands of years; a way of eating that can be maintained; even passed down to your grandchildren.

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and didn’t want to take medication. I followed BED, eliminated sugar and gluten, and followed the book’s recipes. I ate quinoa, cv’s, green smoothies, soup, and yck. Over 8 months my tsh dropped from 9 to 2 and the doctor doing my blood-work said whatever you’re doing keep going!

As both a Holistic Nutritional Consultant and Therapeutic Chef, I am honored to help people in this healing way of eating. You can best reach me by email ( to schedule a nutritional consultation or complimentary phone call to get-to-know-one-another.
