How I do Colonics: In My Bathroom

Tara Carpenter, NC.

20160116_225616I’ve done colonics since college when I experimented with fasting. In my thirties, I had stubborn systemic yeast overgrowth and was stumped where to begin healing. A friend lent me The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and I began that way of eating.

I also rekindled my enjoyment for colonics after reading a chapter in the book about how colon cleansing can bring balance to the body when there is yeast or bacterial overgrowth.

Stage 1: Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

Stage 1: Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

This grocery list is for Stage 1 of Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) This short period lasts 3-6 months, depending on your individual health concerns, and whilst the most dramatic and most cleansing, you will likely find yourself swept away stunned with awe at the powerful shifts that occur in your body as healing happens. Sometimes slowly, sometimes all at once.

We are all individual in where we are at any given time. How old we are, what we are most susceptible and vulnerable to, what we crave the most, what we need to grow. Ready to transition to stage 2? Stage 2 grocery list.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e. CandidaGBS+). When you take the time to do this diet you give your digestive system the opportunity to rest and repair. 

I personally practiced stage one for 3 years. I hit that bullseye every single day. For me this was the amount of time I needed to intuitively know I was ready to move on in how I ate. I have not been the same since. The issues I came into this diet with (i.e. stomach pains, slow digestion, bloating) have never returned, even when I eat food that once brought such suffering.

Jump-start your body to be the self-healing organism you are designed to be.

The foods below are the basics to get you started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). These foods have been shown to help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and start to heal any accompanying damage to the digestive and immune system.

Tips & Tricks to Make Traditional Milk Kefir

Tips & Tricks for Traditional Milk Kefir

I have made kefir for years and learned a lot since I first started in 2011!! Here are my tips and tricks to help you move through your own learning curve that much easier 🙂

See milk kefir recipe here.

#1) I recommend making kefir with Body Ecology starter packets as they contain potent strains of lactobacillus bacteria and beneficial yeast that are hardy and easily travel into your intestines to work their probiotic magic ✨ These probiotics rid of any pathogenic overgrowth in the gut and strengthen digestion. Unlike most probiotics, the ones in this starter aren’t easily destroyed by antibiotics, fluoride, stomach acid, or chlorine. Worth every cent! And much cheaper than any probiotic supplement in the store and more effective on a holistic level. read more

Salmon Head Stock for Strong Bones

fish-stock

Salmon heads are packed with tender meat and abundant fat along the jawbone. They are especially prized for making fish stock as a base for soup of all kinds and contain vitamin A, Omega-3, iron, zinc, and calcium.

I was apprehensive to make salmon head stock. Though I had experience with chicken and other meat stocks, I’d never made fish stock and imagined the whole house smelling ‘fishy’.

Almond Roll-Out Cookies: Recipe for The Body Ecology Diet

These cookies are perfect for anyone on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). My kids love them and I like that the dough doesn’t make a sticky mess on the counter when rolling out. Not bad for a cookie without eggs, dairy, or grain 😉
