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.

This is for men who want to tailor The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to meet their dietary needs. While I am no guy, I did watch my husband start the diet and have 8 years under my belt with feeding both him and my boys.

B.E.D. The Body Ecology Diet Yeast infection

The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.)

The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) is a way of eating designed to address yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth in the body. A main purpose is to boost immunity by alkalizing blood and restoring inner ecosystem to naturally support the body in being the self-healing organism it is.

The goal is not to eradicate yeast, bacteria, or viruses. That would be impossible and less than ideal. Instead, the focus is to restore the body’s strength so all parts work in harmony. A first step in restoring the body’s ecology and reversing yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth is to starve out pathogens by no longer feeding them foods that make them grow; we also want to make the inner ecosystem (gut) an unsuitable environment for these problematic organisms to live. B.E.D. achieves this with mineral and probiotic rich foods that alkalizes the blood and colonizes the gut with friendly flora that correct the body’s pH and assists digestion and elimination. 

B.E.D. doesn’t contain gluten, sugar, or yeast and utilizes traditional methods of preparation to ensure easy-to-digest, nutrient dense, probiotic-rich food. Within a few diligent weeks, you can expect to feel a significant shift in how you feel. This diet isn’t a fad; the underlying principles are thousands of years old and can be used your entire life, even passed down to your children.

B.E.D. Recipe The Body Ecology Diet

Waffle Toppers on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.)

It is easy to reach for a bottle of maple syrup to drizzle on waffles. But what if you are following The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a yeast, parasitic, or viral overgrowth? A gut healing protocol that excludes sugar, including maple syrup. You may be pleasantly surprised that you can eat waffles on the diet…I am here to tell you, that you can!

Here is my recipe for buckwheat waffles (or pancakes) and below are fun ways to top them…

Instead of serving up your waffles with a side of bacon think about Donna Gates’ food combining principle to help your belly feel better and work better. My buckwheat waffles are made with grain and so they combine best with other starches (squash, millet), plant-based proteins (hemp seeds, almonds), fats (cultured butter, coconut oil), and any kind of vegetable.

We tend to add a dollop of unsalted cultured vegetables along with a drizzle of dressing to our breakfast plate. Who knew eating waffles could be so colorful and healing?!

Do you have a creative way of topping your waffles to share?

 “I’m so thankful towards you every time I make your waffles! For all of your time and efforts in putting together this AMAZING-recipe-i-have-been-searching-for-for-years-waffles!! My family who has a strong opinion about waffles even loves them!!” ~ N.B. Chapel Hill, NC.

Coconut Roll-Out Cookies for The Body Ecology Diet

Most coconut flour cookies taste like cardboard and so I was reluctant to create a recipe for one. Yet one day I did and am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out …. they roll out like a dream and are as moist as I could get without the dough falling apart.

This all around versatile cookie is great for anyone healing on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and need to avoid grain, refined sugar, and flour. If you are unable to eat eggs, check out my almond cookies.
