Nama Shoyu is a traditional soy sauce that is unpasteurized; nama means “raw” and shoyu means “soy”. This soy sauce is made by fermenting non-GMO soybeans with a probiotic fungi called Aspergillus oryzae plus the addition of water, wheat, and sea salt.

This mixture is left to ferment in cedar kegs for 6 to 8 months; sometimes as long as 4 years.

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 stage lasts about 3-6 months and when most people feel dramatic changes in how they feel. This is good! The body is cleansing, realigning, and most of all …. healing. How long you remain on Stage 1 depends on your individual health concerns and reasons for stepping into this diet. 

The body is a self-healing organism, and this list is a tool to start feeling better! Ready to transition to stage 2? Here is the Stage 2 Grocery List.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a holistic and natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e., CandidaGBS+). By practicing this diet, your digestive system gets the opportunity to rest and repair and renew. 

I practiced stage one for 3 years. A long time, yet that is what I needed for my own healing. I hit the bullseye every day and transformed my health (i.e., no more stomach pain, slow digestion, or bloating).

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

The foods below are the basics to get you started. These foods help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and heal accompanying damage to the digestive/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

Apple Cider Kefir: A Probiotic Recipe!

This kefir is made from apple cider and starter. A sweet and sour concoction that is fizzy like champagne …. pure effervescence! The best part is also rich in diverse, potent probiotic strains. The friendly flora within act as a digestive aid to keep the gut in good shape. More benefits.

Looking for an easy, affordable way to get your probiotic dose? This might be for you. Especially if you have an issue with your gut (i.e. bloating, constipation) or yeast/bacterial overgrowth (i.e., Candida, GBS+). 

No matter what, a glass of juice kefir is a way to kick start a day and keep those healthy internal gut bugs in balance.

B.E.D. Yeast infection

Using B.E.D. for Vaginal Yeast Infections

If you get vaginal yeast infections more then you want one then I highly recommend The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). I could go on and on about this way of eating as I personally adhered to stage 1 for 3 years back in 2010 after being diagnosed with a systemic yeast infection (included tons of itching and discomfort down below).

Hands down, I think B.E.D. is one of the best yeast killing, yeast balancing protocols out there.
