My Favorite Supplements on Body Ecology Diet
Tara Carpenter, NC.
Holistic nutrition for people healing with Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.).
I found Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) in 2010 and love the yin and yang roots that make up the foundation of this healing way of eating; from the practice of food combining to the laid-back approach of you do you.
There is a relaxation in B.E.D. that I have yet to find in another diet. A place to come home to again and again. As a Holistic Nutritionist for those healing with B.E.D., I get asked what supplements to take. My answer near every time is “check out body ecology“. I have taken most products that Donna Gates, founder of B.E.D., has created as have my children and the people coming to me for nutritional support.
Watching someone begin a body ecology supplement is joy ~ like watching a child wake to the world, realizing their place within, that they are strong, independent, and capable.
A client came to me for B.E.D. Support; he had been on the diet for a couple weeks and not able to poop without a laxative. I recommended LivAmend and Bifidus Blend to get things moving and within a week of both, he came back lighter in attitude and belly 🙂 Rejoice! Confidence!
Grounding into the body is empowering and comes with bringing concentrated attention to healing. I take my hat off to anyone who helps themself in this way. Without further ado, I will shine a spotlight on my top favorite supplements from B.E.D.

Don’t see a B.E.D. supplement here? That doesn’t mean I would not recommend …. more likely because I don’t have enough experience to write about it yet 🙂
